Have you ever seen a cuter Lego figure? I think not! It came in a set I bought for my daughter for her birthday. It’s adorable and I love it so much! The kids sometimes hold it up in front of my face, because they know I go nuts over it, every time. “Sooooo cutttttte!!!!” […]

Hiking and Trail Blazing: A Memorable First Overnight Family Trip

Glitter on the Floor

  I tripped over something. I looked down at my feet to see an empty container, a toy dinosaur and thousands….no….millions (as my kids would say) of sparkles on the carpet. No one told me about glitter before I became a parent. How evil it is. How it never, ever really goes away, no matter […]

The Value of Slowing Down

I like to do things quickly and efficiently. I like ticking off a long to do list and working towards goals. I like walking fast. Then I had kids and everything changed. Nothing could be done quickly or efficiently. Nothing I tell you! In the early days, my to-do list comprised of having a shower. […]

Trying Weight Watchers – No Count Meals

Despicable Me 3 Review

Rating: PG Running time: 90 minutes Rating: 3 out of 5 stars If you’re hoping for something fast, rambunctious and funny, Despicable Me 3 doesn’t disappoint. However for me, the movie didn’t hold the same charm as the first movies. In saying that, it’s the type of circus that would be a hit with young children […]

Rediscovering My Motivation

What I discovered in Israel was a curious mix of deep tradition with mind-blowing-out-of-the-box thinking. It would be easy to consider these things incompatible.
