Where Did My Passion Go?

The hubby and I had the rare opportunity to have a conversation.  For several minutes even!  And we both came to conclusion that there isn’t anything that really excites us anymore, nothing that gets us to leap out of bed in the mornings.  Except our kids.  I am of the opinion that we are just… Continue Reading

How Much Breastmilk Do You Pump?

This is my second time nursing and pumping. I was able to exclusively breastfeed my first child for the first six months. When I went back to work, I was concerned about the quantity of milk I was expressing. I would dutifully go to an empty conference room and lock the door. I would close… Continue Reading

Good Employee

For my professional career, I have been a GREAT employee.  I finished my work before it needed to be done and asked for additional work.  This led to growth opportunities, such as increasing my job responsibilities or promotion.

Garlic Biscuit Knots

I love biscuits.  I know they are simple to make, the ingredients are just flour, some type of fat, a leavener and liquid but I just can’t master making biscuits!  Mine come out hard or heavy and just not tasty at all.  Alas, I have given into canned biscuits.  Yet, the flavor leaves much to… Continue Reading

See’s candy is my favorite brand of boxed chocolate. It’s made in my home state of California! I love just about every thing they make. But I would have to say my favorite is the Scotchmallow!!  Creamy, buttery caramel with a pillow of marshmallow and it is all drenched with chocolate!! Mmmm… Delish!! Hubby always… Continue Reading

Why I Love Diaper Flats

I love diaper flats! They are so versatile. You can use them as spit up/burp cloths, diapers, to wipe up messes and on and on. I had a baby 10 days ago and decided to venture finally out. My son didn’t have preschool this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday and he was uber antsy… Continue Reading
