When Bras Attack

I’m an Independent Director with Thirty-One Gifts, which means that I get paid to party! I absolutely love it, but I do have my fair share of embarrassing things that have happened at my parties. I’m the first to admit that I’ll never have a “perfect party”. I get excited when I present which leads to me talking too fast and stumbling on my words. I make funny faces w... Read More »

This I Believe

“I believe that taking your last breath does not mean you are dead. I believe that you die twice; once when you take your last breath, and again when someone whispers your name for the last time.” – Banksy When I was 9 years old, my aunt died of cancer. I remember getting the call from my father telling me that she had passed in the night with him by her side. He watched her pass... Read More »

From Office to Playroom

From Office to Playroom

One year ago, my husband and I had a beautiful office located on the second floor of our house. We had our diplomas, pictures of family and friends, our computer and all the other necessities that make a wonderful workspace. Fast forward to now, and we no longer have that beautiful room. What happened? We had a child who not only brought tons of joy into our lives but also hundreds of toys and bab... Read More »

Double the Blogs, Double the Fun, Except Maybe for the Husband

I’m Stephanie, and I’m maybe-slightly-kind-of addicted to blogging. I don’t need, like, group meetings and an intervention or anything. I just really, really like it. I can quit anytime. I swear! (No, you don’t need to speak with my husband. Let’s just keep this between us. *wink wink*) I started several years ago, have been through three domain names as I finally nar... Read More »

Bedtime is the best time

Bedtime is the best time

Bed time is the best time…and get your mind out of the gutters people!! I’m not referring to what I’m SURE a lot of you are thinking about. I’m talking about that quiet time with your family, in my case…my husband and our 2 year old daughter. Every single evening is pretty simple and some may say ‘boring’ at our house. We eat dinner, hang out, play with to... Read More »

How to Remove Crayon from the inside of a Dryer

The last thing I needed on the day before Christmas school break and while I’m trying to finish holiday shopping online AND pack for our trip to see family is to find blue crayon in my dryer ALL OVER MY KIDS’ CLOTHES. Lucky me, that is exactly what I got this morning! Ugh. Yep, a blue crayon, and a green one, I think, somehow got past me in the laundry and ended up going through the washer and int... Read More »

Never Forget 9/11 | WIRL Project

9/11 Never Forget

We should never forget September 11, 2001.  However, we do need to move on, to continue living our lives without fear. I was in the 11th grade sitting in English class.  I remember one slightly eccentric teacher running down the hallway between classes that morning screaming, “We are under attack – We are at war.”  Life would never be the same. I presume, to avoid panic on that pristin... Read More »

The “Dad Bod”? Seriously?

The “Dad Bod”? Seriously?

So, what the hell is the “Dad Bod”? It’s been trending on social media and showing up on the news lately and I’m not sure what to think of it. I guess this, “Dad Bod” has always been around…it’s the guy who is over the age of 25 and has a healthy balance of hitting the bars and hitting the gym. He wants to look good for the ladies his lady, but loves... Read More »
