I knew this day was bound to happen.  My 7 year old asked for a Star Wars themed birthday party. My husband was thrilled.  I, on the other hand, needed to learn enough about Star Wars to be able to put together a party!  Thankfully, there is Pinterest!  I found loads of ideas and was …
I am really loving this quote by Marianne Williamson.  I read it on a daily basis.  Personally, I am in a time of deep introspection as I sort through some past fears and future decisions that need to be made in my life.  My wish for you is that you make manifest the glory of …
I became aware of this upcoming conference and wanted to share information w/ our lovely readers. The Cornerstone Autism Center which is headquartered in Greenwood, Indiana is hosting this event on April 18th from 9am-5pm (EST).

My obsession with green veggies began with kale.  I could’t get enough.  Then it was Brussels sprouts.  Now, it’s all about the broccoli slaw!  Just buy a bag of slaw at the grocery store, I purchased a container at Kroger, and let the fun begin! There are so many ways you can prepare your broccoli …
It’s been a little while since I’ve stood upon my soap box and shared my feelings about nasty chemicals in products.  I have mentioned Phthalates before within my post about endocrine disrupters; they are one of the “dirty dozen” of chemicals to avoid.

  St. Patrick’s Day is kind of a big deal around my house, but we are trying to eat healthy! I have been searching Pinterest for some cute recipes that we can make without all the nasty ingredients we are trying to avoid! I found the cutest ideas from Clean & Scentsible! Do you celebrate …
I am linking up with Momfessionals again today to discuss how we met our spouse and got engaged. Ryan and I met in the fall of 1997 through a mutual college friend.  We often hung out at this friend’s house on the weekend.  It was not love at first sight, in fact, we were dating …
How did you celebrate Valentine’s Day this year?  We had lots of activities going on surrounding our kids so we kept busy with that.  I didn’t do anything romantic with my husband this year, but I’m totally ok with that.  Valentine’s Day is about showing your friends and loved ones appreciation, not JUST your romantic …
This is something that has been resonating w/ me this week; guessing it’s due to all the Valentine’s Day hoopla.  My hubby and I don’t go all out for this holiday.  It just isn’t something that we want to stress about ;).  I love my husband of 13 years (wowza!) and from having completed The …
I dig a good sweet potato (get it-dig…, I crack myself up!).  Anyway.  I came across some awesome organic sweet potatoes the other day at a health food store that aren’t the typical orange skin and orange flesh.  The two types that caught my attention were purple.  I usually don’t gravitate towards purple, I did …
