There comes a time in every person’s life when they have to step outside their comfort zone and try something new.
I don’t know how or why it happened, but UGG Australia sent me a really lovely email asking me if I wanted to bring my girls to their new Fashion Valley store (7007 Friars Rd, all you San Diego peeps) for a little shopping spree.… Read More

I recently took this amazing 2-day Photoshop for Bloggers class.
And now I kind of know how to make stuff!
I made a fall fashion graphic and ran it on the Mint blog (check it out for a larger/better view of the graphic).
So far The People of the Internet haven’t ripped it to shreds, so I thought I’d share it with you guys, too.… Read More
My Future Husband / July 3, 2013
I was having a little heart-to-heart with Dr. Mom the other day. The topic of discussion: love.
She suggested I make a list of everything I would look for in a potential life partner. Like, literally make a list.
And just for fun, we’ll call this “life partner” a husband. While divorce sucks and all, I would like to get married again one day.… Read More

What can I say?
We came, we saw, we…Biebered?
First, I didn’t look at the tickets before we got there, so you can imagine my surprise when I saw this:
Yes, that says “Row 1, Seat 1.”
Then, after a few opening acts and one verrry long into, the Biebster came flying out on giant metal wings made from guitars.… Read More
Motherhood / June 20, 2013
Because the universe has a knack for making sure you pay for your sins, I have been offered two free tickets to a Justin Bieber concert this Saturday night.
Of course, this opportunity was presented to someone who might have recently referred to the handsome young buck as a “talented young lady.”
Seriously though?… Read More

Life Lessons / June 6, 2013
It’s been a while.
I just wanted you to know I’m still here.
A few things have happened since I’ve been gone.
1. At the turn of the New Year I got hired on as the official Managing Editor and Social Media Manager for Mint.com (after 1.5 years of contracting with them, this is a HUGE relief).… Read More
These are a Few of My Favorite Things / January 7, 2013
I have to be honest here and admit that I have never listened to a single Justin Beiber song.
I’m sure she’s quite a talented young lady and all, but this still amuses me:

Giveaways, Product Reviews / December 18, 2012
Before we get started, I just want you to know there is a Martha Stewart giveaway happening at the end of this post.
But, as usual, I need to tell a story/make fun of myself first.
I’ve written about it before, but I’ll say it again: I am not crafty. I look at some of you awesome crafty mamas and it seriously humbles me.… Read More
