Just Let Me Warm My Tea

I canceled everything today, to enjoy a rainy day at home with the kiddos. I haven’t had a full day at home in so long. I plan on getting lots done – but for now I am still in my pjs at 9:30am, in my bed, with a cup of tea, staring at a blank…

Yes Mom and Donuts

We kicked off summer break with a sleepover last night and donuts this morning. I know….I rock. Being a single mom is really tough sometimes.

It’s Just A New Kind Of Cool

If I was ever cool, I don’t remember it. This thought made me laugh as I put my vintage apron over my sweats and Aeropostale hoodie, so I could make chocolate chip cookies. There are silver linings everywhere. So I am getting older and maybe a little nervous about my fleeting “middle” years….BUT, I don’t…
