Spicy Deviled Eggs #ProudOfIt

  This recipe for Spicy Deviled Eggs is sponsored by MIRACLE WHIP but all thoughts and opinions are my own. One of our favorite spring-time traditions is hard boiling a few dozen eggs to decorate in pretty colors. My kids love it…and if you could see my multi-colored hands today, you’d know that I love […]

easter eggs-10

  Despite the fact that not all of the kids are equally enthusiastic about decorating Easter eggs anymore, it’s a tradition that we keep every year. We had tons of fun…those of us who decorated eggs. And although our eggs aren’t fancy or beautiful like some others I’ve seen, they are a colorful and happy […]

  This post featuring my daughter’s high school graduation announcements is sponsored by Tiny Prints but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

  I don’t know what came over me. I had an idea recently to make a new kind of rice krispie treat. I have no idea if other people have tried this before… but I know that we’ll be making it again. These are a little more complicated than your typical rice krispie treats, but […]

The Non Importance of Being Liked and Things Being Fair

This picture is one that I took of my nieces on Easter 2 years ago. It has nothing to do with Jodi's post except that I can imagine my niece saying "It's not fair!"

  Please welcome my good friend, Jodi, who is guest posting today. Jodi is the mother of Michael, the blogger behind Jodifur.com, and a fellow DC-area resident (which means I get to bump in to her every once in a while…or catch a day-time, just-for-fun movie together). It used to really matter to me that […]

I love using different types of pasta (break away from the typical Fettucini Alfredo!) and if you’ve never tried them before, meatballs in Alfredo sauce are delicious! I think I may like Alfredo-meatballs […]

Spring Break Flash Back – PSF Give Me Your Best Shot


  I am counting down the minutes before my kids head to Spring Break. I can’t wait! I’m trying to get things ready so that I can be out of the house as much as possible for the whole week. I found these pictures from Spring 2009, when my kids were a few feet shorter. […]
