Living Out My Journey-By Rediscovering Myself

“Anytime I start to feel the mommy guilt that comes with taking time for myself I think: Would I rather have my kids see me feeling like I’m stuck at home and feeling bad about myself and grouchy… or would I rather have them see me having fun and enjoying my own life, as I … Read more

Moms’ Night Out

I take notes like crazy. I keep a notebook in my purse and I’ve taken notes on the back of junk mail envelopes and church programs. I just hear so many things that strike me and I want to remember them. I love to go back through my notes to have those a-ha moments all … Read more

The Perfect Field Trip Lunch

And by perfect, I mean perfect for us. Perfect because they’re foods the critter and I agree on for a packed lunch. And perfect because everything can be thrown away and we don’t have to keep track of a lunch box or ice pack. At first, it was hard for me to come up with an … Read more

In The Event You Think My Life Is Perfect

Messy house dishes pictures. In the Event You Think My Life is Perfect via Real Honest Mom blog

I’ve written about this topic before but I think the message bears repeating. I see comments all the time about how people only show the perfect side of life on social media. I do agree with the sentiment, but I am probably guilty of it too. So in the event you think my life is perfect: This is … Read more

This qualifies as an adventure? Why yes, yes it does. I don’t even remember the last time I went to a salon to get a haircut. I don’t even remember where I went when I did. I’ve been trimming it up at home for so long I just kind of forgot salons existed. It has … Read more

Taking A Painting Class

As part of my campaign to get out of the house and live a little, I decided to take a painting class. I used to love art in high school and I was good at it, but that was more than 20 years ago. I thought I would try to revisit an old passion and … Read more

I’m Going To Let Go, Jack. I’m Going To Let Go.

Titanic is one of my favorite movies. I remember waiting in line at Blockbuster way back when, excited to buy my two-tape VHS copy of the movie when it first came out. Needless to say, times have changed. It’s not a favorite because of the sappy love story, though I was certainly a fan at the … Read more

The Gift of Boredom

I set my little kitchen timer anytime I sit down to look at Pinterest. There are literally millions of at-home ideas for children’s activities. While I love the neat crafty ideas on there, I am also really big on giving my kids the gift of boredom. I hate to say this out loud, but I don’t always … Read more

Do You Want Someone To Like The Fake You?

I want to share some pics with you. They are pictures of my messy house. I am waving the white flag, my house is littered with toys much of the time, there are little handprints all over my fridge (stainless steel is not my first choice in appliances) and there is spilled milk on the … Read more
