Seriously, there is a whole DAY devoted to my favorite sandwich!? Yes. Yes there is. There are a few simple pleasures in life. Toasty, buttery bread with melted cheddar, maybe a slice of ham, dunked in a bowl of tomato soup is one of them. But for something different, here are three mouthwatering gourmet combos […]
My baby is all grown up. Well, as grown up as you can be at 3 years old. I put him to bed a toddler and he woke up a preschooler. Breathe. Deep breaths. I can do this. It’s been 45 minutes since I took him to school. I’m in public (i.e. at Starbucks) […]
This isn’t the first time I have dreamed of NKOTB (New Kids on the Block to those who have lived under a rock the past 20+ years or so). When I was 12 I would think that Jordan would look at me in the audience and say “I’m gonna marry that girl” and wisk me […]
Well, it’s not like I can’t come up with any excuse to have a glass of wine, but sick toddlers really make me drink heavily. Chewy has been sick for 4 or 5 days now. Started in the middle of the night a few days ago. Out of the blue. He cried so I went […]
I don’t want to clean. I loathe it. Hell, I even hired people to come clean FOR me twice a month. But here I sit, in a dirty office with a cluttered kitchen and a mountain of laundry to do. I need to get dinner ready and take kids to karate and help with homework, […]
I can’t believe a whole week has FLOWN by! It’s Friday again and time for my favorite things! This week allrecipes.com has been my new BFF. I wanted to start getting creative about dinners and make them more kid friendly. AllRecipes.com saved the day, er, dinner, many times this week! Another thing I love this […]
$#!t! Ooooh boy, he’s lucky his daddy had to work all night so I couldn’t be loud when I found this… This is only one of the 5 (FIVE!) cushions he colored on. Just last week he drew a nice picture on my off white dining room chair (yes, I’m a masochist for owning such […]
It’s Friday, so it’s time to post my favorite things from this week! 1. SodaStream! Check out my review on our SodaStream. We are obsessed with it! 2. KnitPicks.com. I’m starting a knit-a-long of this great Sheldon pattern! I’m naming him HotRod just like our tortoise. I ordered some great colors for him and hoping […]
I was going to title this Oprah’s fave things, but thought the peeps at Harpo might get mad and claim copy-write infringement. Whatevs. So now it’s ColoradoMoms Favorite Things. Same as Oprah though. I’m going to give you an unsponsored, totally biased list of what I have been using/loving/crushing each week. I don’t want to […]
Trying to get in a good workout… As you can tell, he’s all buff and stuff and ready to hit the town! GTL Baby!
Well, we are more than halfway through summer vacation! I’m happy, I’m sad, I’m not drunk enough. The Back to School ads have already started and some schools have only just recently got out! We’ve been done for a while, since May 21st! BUT we start wicked early too, August 12th. Eeks! That’s only 4.5 […]
Well, we are at the half-way mark. We’ve had the revamped site and blog for 6 months now. To celebrate just what it’s become I’m giving away a $50 Target Gift Card to a lucky reader! Target isn’t sponsoring this (although I wish they were!). Although we are relatively new in the blogosphere, we’ve had […]
Did I piss off Karma? To blow my tire in rush hour traffic with my kids in the car? But without the blowout, would we have been on Debbie’s radar when she had a air of Sting tickets to offload? So maybe it was all GOOD Karma.
Now I know what you are saying, just potty train him! BUT with Chewy it’s not that easy. He still doesn’t even walk yet at 26 months. His dyspraxia/motor planning issues will keep him from being trained for a while. His new favorite thing to do after his nap? Taking of his diaper. I get […]
