Inner Mean Girl Cleanse – Week 3 – Obligation

I’m more than a little bit late posting my “weekly” experience with the Inner Mean Girl Cleanse challenge. You see, Week 3 was all about obligation – that little voice telling us what we have to do. I was talking to Stacey Weckstein (@MomRenewal) at the Type-A Mom Conference this past weekend about how I […]

Inner Mean Girl Cleanse – Week 2 – Comparison

Last week’s IMG Cleanse topic was gossip, and I didn’t have too many problems tackling that particular brand of nastiness from my Inner Mean Girl. This week, however, was far more of a challenge: taking my inner Comparison Queen down a notch or three. The daily affirmation for the week was: “I am inspired. I […]

Inner Mean Girl Cleanse – Week 1

I was supposed to do some sort of introductory post about the Inner Mean Girl Cleanse before the program began last week, but some of the very reasons I wanted to take part in it in the first place prevented me from doing so. I’m trying not to beat myself up about it, but again, […]

Price Chopper Headquarters Tour and Conference Announcement

On Wednesday, May 5, Beth from The Angel Forever and I were invited for a private tour of the new corporate headquarters for Price Chopper Supermarkets in Schenectady, New York. Beth has done her own amazing post about our Price Chopper tour, and I will try not to repeat too many of the same details […]

It’s About You

I was looking up my blog stats the other day when I noticed that Quantcast had made the user demographics page a lot easier to read. I learned a bit more about you, my readers, and I thought I would share. Most of you are female. This does not surprise me, as this is a […]

My Dream Vacation to Beaches Resort – Literally

When I woke up this morning, I had no trouble remembering my dream. We were on vacation. And not just any vacation, an all-inclusive resort vacation. When my dream started, it was just Tom and me walking into a Sandals Resort with a bunch of other couples who had just arrived. Tom and I spent […]

Happy Thanksgiving

Today is Thanksgiving, and with all of the bad news in the world, I have a lot to be thankful for. I am thankful for Tom, TJ, and the rest of my loving family. I am thankful for my wonderful and supportive friends. That includes all of you wonderful people I’ve met online through Twitter […]

Happy 9th Anniversary

Tom and I are celebrating our 9th wedding anniversary today. Nine years. Nine wonderful years. We’ve had our struggles and we’ve had our blessings. I’m looking forward to our 10th anniversary, and our 25th, 50th, and (God willing) our 75th. A great song was recently released as a single, with the accompanying music video. It […]

13 Reasons Why I Like RolePlaying Games

I’ve always been a bit of a geek, but I’ve now crossed over into being not just a girl geek, but a girl gamer geek. I have to admit, I used to think that all of these roleplaying games were pretty lame. You know all those jokes about the losers in high school who played […]

Thursday Thirteen: What I Love About My Husband

I love my husband. Tom is the perfect husband for me. We’re coming up on our 9th wedding anniversary this October, but today is our 11th anniversary of being together. I thought I’d commemorate the occasion by telling the world what I love so much about him. The way he looks at me. How he […]
