What to do when your toddler ruins Comic Con . . .

What to do when your toddler ruins comic con - guest post on

What to do when your toddler ruins Comic Con  by: Amanda Logan   Step One: Breathe. It’s probably not actually all that bad. Really. I was given a free ticket to Comic Con when a friend (Granolaish!) won them for the weekend. Since my husband was planning on helping a friend move, it was just going to be me heading up there and since he was planning on helping friends move, it made the most sense for me to have the toddler in tow. I took the stroller and planned to take our mei tai … [Read more...]

Applying my #Jamberry nails! A review and #giveaway from

**I received Jamberry nail products in order to facilitate this review. My opinions are honest and my own.** All About Jamberry Over the years I've had to face to harsh truth that my nails are not the best. I damaged them permanently when I was a tween with acrylic manicures. The dremel tool left permanent ridges in my nails due to cuticle damage. So, as an adult, my only options for manicures tend to be gel polish. While gel polish is awesome, it's time consuming and can be expensive. I … [Read more...]

Leaving Work to Become a Stay at Home Mom and Fighting Feelings of Inadequacy

Leaving Work to Become a Stay at Home Mom and Fighting Feelings of Inadequacy: The Day I Became Hope from thirtysomething - #parenting #mom #SAHM #life

The Day I Became Hope from thirtysomething If you're my age, or younger you may not get this reference. thirtysomething was a television show in the late 80s, early 90s, written for my parents' generation. It's a drama, moderately funny, and most of the characters are full of  what many people now call "first world problems." With all that being said, it's still a decent show and better than most of the crap on TV now. My husband disagrees. He hates thirtysomething because he says the … [Read more...]
