Coupons and Dinner Specials

So…every once in a while, I disagree with someone on the internet.  It happens.  I remember recently watching a a few women my age (mid twenties) basically blast men who would consider taking a date to Applebees, or using a gift certificate, or *gasp* using a “2 eat for $__” special acceptable behavior.  Apparently, this…

On Being Borderline Obese

Ramblings

We bought Izzy a book of Hello Kitty stickers this weekend.  She loves stickers, so we figured we would use them to help with positive reinforcement. Well, Izzy earned her first sticker today!  She asked me to “taste” my water, and when she put the cup to her mouth, she tipped it back a little…

Fears Realized, Again

I hate spiders.  Strong word, for a strong feeling.  Actually, I loathe spiders.  I had a run in with one last year, and I still get chills thinking about it.  Finding a black widow spider on your infant isnt exactly ideal.  The EMTs warned me at that time that black widows were pretty common in…

Setting Goals

(I’m featured today over at Biz Talk with K!  Please go check it out!) Everybody talks about how important it is to set goals. A 5,10, and even 20 year plan, to set your life on a path to what you believe to be success. But, those long term plans don’t mean much if they…
