I learned last year that buy in is pretty much the key to getting Ethan to do anything, or so I thought.  I had totally coerced him into being a knight for Halloween, his sister would be the dragon and of course Hubs and I were going as the king and queen.  I mean really did you have to even ask about that one?  So...

Today is my wedding anniversary.  Ethan is so sweet, he wakes up and comes bounding out of bed and into my bedroom, ‘happy anniversary mom!’  How freakin cute is that?  Said the same thing to his dad. Anyway, since it is my anniversary I thought I would revisit my wedding journal on the wedding channel and dig up...

Had dinner last night at the local Mexican place, we were in and out by 6 something but we still managed to create quite a ruckus.  I can’t stop laughing about it.  Short version, 2 moms and 4 kids step into a kid friendly dinner establishment.  After making sure the kids have this that and the other, the moms are...

This is how my daughter is getting around these days: It slays me.

Ethan had about 4 weeks of summer camp and they did a lot of art projects.  We were looking through his folder of stuff and he said his favorite one was the Jackson Polyp.  I’ve never heard of Jackson Polyp, have you?;)

When I was planning my own wedding way back in the day, I was writing about it on the Wedding Channel. It was my dirty little secret, the whole message board scene, my ‘pretend’ internet friends.;)  Well now that I am firmly entrenched in the wedding jewelry business, I decided to revisit the wedding channel and see if...

Ethan has always been VERY opinionated about the shoes he wears.  Me no get.  Welllllll… maybe he comes by it naturally.  Anyway, I am looking for some back to school shoes for him that don’t break the bank and will stand up to IMMENSE AMOUNTS of playstructure (when did we stop calling them playgrounds?) activity and...
