  • Why I No Longer Drink Water

    There is a dangerous item that I can no longer bring myself to consume - water.* That's right, water.  A lot of people are not aware of how dangerous water is. Some people have bad health if they drink too much water.  It's true!  There are people who are allergic to it.  The little seahorse…

  • Quinoa Tortillas – My First Epic Fail

    Money has been a little tight lately, so I have tried to make some more homemade food.  Pretty much all the food I cook is already homemade, but I'm talking even more homemade.  For example, for lunch the other day we had nachos with homemade tortilla chips (but made out of store-bought tortillas).

  • Learning to Love My Body

    I have a confession to make: I'm not entirely in love with my body.  We tend to have a love/hate relationship. There are times I love my body.  I look at where I was in 2013, and I'm amazed at the progress I've seen.  I can't believe that I no longer fit into those huge…

  • Don’t Give Up

    Don't give up and quit something just because it seems hard. When I tackled potty-training with PJ, the first day was hard!  I tried timers, stickers, stories, etc. - anything to help him feel motivated.  I did more loads of laundry that day than I do in a week.  However, each day gradually got better.…
