What Would Carrie Bradshaw Do?

I recently went back and binge watched all six seasons and one feature film {just the first one, the second one is no bueno} of Sex and the City.  I miss these ladies.  When the show first came out, I was single in the city of Los Angeles.  I dreamed of having Carrie’s wardrobe and…

We Should All be Feminists

We should all be feminists.  We’re women, after all.  Unless you’re reading this and you’re a man, but then, you have a mother, and maybe a sister.  Feminists are fighting for equality for women.  We’re fighting for equal pay, and equal opportunity, and we’re fighting for the right to make the choice of how we…

Safety First or Using a Booster Seat Until College

When Kim Zolciak-Biermann was recently lambasted on social media for posting a picture of her son in her car in a booster seat, I was totally on her side! People were saying he looked too big to be in a booster, while others were supportive, citing safety first. I’m a pretty safe person and a…

A Meeting with John Holmes or Boogie Nights at The Breakers

While we were on our mom’s weekend in West Palm Beach, we were having dinner at The Seafood Bar at The Breakers.  We were sitting at a table in the bar area, so the tables were fairly close to each other.  We were Air Dropping photos to each other and the name “John Holmes” kept…

Travel: West Palm Beach, Florida

This trip was planned and canceled more times than you can count.  My former neighbors and I had been planning some iteration of this mom’s weekend for at least a couple of years.  When two of us moved – one to Massachusetts, me to Colorado – while the other two stayed in Arizona, we knew…

Best Movies for Tweens

I have a tween.  I’m not sure how it happened and it gives me anxiety to say it.  When she went to middle school, all of a sudden, she matured exponentially in the span of a few months.  With this newfound maturity comes a need to watch movies with content she can relate to. She’s…

Disarm you with a Smile or A Story of Depression and Red Lipstick

Every new year brings with it an opportunity for reflection and perspective.  2015, 2016, 2017, and now 2018 have proven to be quite challenging for me.  2015 and 2016 I was going through my divorce and I was in a certifiable depression that took quite a while to pull myself out of. 2017 was a…

Travel: The North Shore, Oahu, Hawaii

My family and I were planning a trip to Maui last summer when the volcano erupted on The Big Island, and since Maui is the next closest island, they were getting a lot of the toxic air.  So, we opted for an Oahu vacation instead.  I had been to Oahu three times previously, staying in…

Drink, Pray, Love – Bible Study

If you’ve been following my journey, we have now made it to the “pray” portion.  This portion also falls under “love,” but definitely not “drink.” My history with religion is as follows – I believe in God.  I started going to Sunday School when I was in kindergarten.  My parents weren’t big on church, but…

Mini Pain au Chocolate

This recipe for Mini Pain au Chocolate is so simple and delicious!  French pastry can be intimidating, but luckily, there’s puff pastry.  Puff pastry is easy to use and no less delicious than if you had slaved at making it yourself.  I used to watch my mom make pie crusts and pastries when I was…

Landslide

Fleetwood Mac was in Denver last night and it was pretty amazing.  Stevie Nicks and her tambourine, live and in person are something to behold.  Fleetwood Mac are special to me for lots of reasons. When I got married, we had a hard time choosing a song for our first dance.  I’m not really a…

A Little Help from my Friends

I recently had a birthday and I have to admit, it’s not something I’m happy about.  I’m much happier celebrating birthday’s than the alternative, but I’m inching my way closer to a milestone birthday that I’m not looking forward to celebrating.  Life is a series of milestones and bumps in the road with the occasional…
