Recently I received an email from another mommy who was interested in getting in to blogging/vlogging. Her question for me was how did I feel about my personal life getting into my blog life? In other words, what do you do when your “real life” finds out about your internet alter ego?
I’m not a professional blogger, some day I would love to be, but right now I am still an amateur in the sea of gifted veterans who have put their time and energies into becoming amazing writers. So to get questions like this always takes me aback. Even though I don’t hold myself up to the esteem of other bloggers, I never leave a question unanswered so this is my response:
Leave it to Facebook and social media to help me when I’m stuck With only three more days of VEDA and only so many more topics to choose from I went to Facebook and Twitter to get some inspiration. I am so lucky to have such wonderful friends respond. Continue reading →
Last Christmas I really wanted to signify my family in a way that I could keep them close to me even if they weren’t near.

After contacting the creator Maria who makes them herself, I explained my fascination with her product and my want to review it. She graciously offered to send me one to review and a few weeks later the beautiful accessory showed up at my door.
If you follow me on Facebook, or Twitter (which you really should, I mean come on), you would have seen my little post about playing with some PVC. Wait. Let me stop real quick and admit something. For some reason pregnant, or not, I get my words mixed up in the worst situations and at the worst times. For example. The first tweet I sent out on Saturday actually said “Playing with some PCP, thanks Pinterest!”….uhhh yeah. After quickly realizing my mistake I took it down and rewrote it the correct way, hopefully before anyone saw it. Unfortunately I also have the tendency to call my mom’s CANNA LILIES that she plants every year, can you guess? Yes, CANNABIS instead. Ugh. It’s annoying…AAAAND embarrassing…especially when said in front of her garden club friends. ANYWAYS…. Continue reading →
