A Mother Always Finds A Way

In Jen's Nailed It Challenge, Mommy Realityby Jen34 Comments

Many of you will recall the dating post Jensguy wrote about recently, wherein he mentioned ice blocking as a cheap and economical date. He further explained that this is something he would like to do with our family. When he said family, I believe he meant he would be particularly pleased to see not only his children, but me (his …

Man-day Post: Movies I Love, But Can’t Recommend

In Man-dayby Jensguy13 Comments

I don’t believe that I am alone in my enjoyment of certain things which I am fairly sure others might not enjoy nearly as much as I do.  For example, something like Kipper Snacks. Kipper snacks aren’t for everyone, but if you like them you just really like them. It’s like Sardines, but far more photogenic. So I’m going to …

Where’s Olaf

In Parentingby Jen16 Comments

My children are crazy about Frozen. I believe we have now watched the movie HUNDREDS of times. Rebekah, my 6 year old, has been very concerned that since this is Olaf’s first summer alive he really should have the full “In Summer” experience. So, we decided it would be fun if we took our own little Olaf along with us …

Man-Day Post: The Death of Blogging: Part 2

In Blogging, Man-dayby Jensguy23 Comments

Continued from last weeks post The Death of Blogging.  It’s not about you. One of the things I have noticed is that those who proclaim the death of blogging are really shouting “my blog isn’t doing as well!”  Here is a fun excerpt from Wired Magazine circa 2008 (funny how that feels like such an eternity ago in digital time.) …

In Mommy Realityby Jen19 Comments

In case you missed it, this week’s Mommy Reality Challenge is about ALL of your little “me” time secrets and mommy guilty pleasures you use to stay sane and survive mother-hood. Here’s mine.

That Day I Met The Grumpy Cat

In Bloggingby Jen14 Comments

Several months ago I was invited to be a guest at a special Disney Social Media Moms On The Road Tour slated for Phoenix this summer. To say I was excited about being included in this event is totally understating it. I was over the moon thrilled. Growing up I had only been to Disneyland once, but since becoming an …

Man-day Post: The Death of Blogging- Part 1

In Blogging, Man-dayby Jensguy22 Comments

Have you heard the news?  Blogging is dead.  Every year people march out articles telling us that the era of blogging is finished and the “new thing” is ready to take over.  Generally, they are selling something or just crying for attention.  I especially love it when they make the pronouncement on a blog (very post-modern.) But the claim is …
