  Happy Fall, my friends.  Happy October! I can't even believe it's October already, largely in part due to my denial and also because it's 75 degrees here in Connecticut today.  The only surefire signs that fall is here are the sounds of the leaves rustling on the trees as they get drier and drier, and the lovely ...

12 Tremendous Tricks to Trim 20 Minutes off Your Morning  Um, I need more than 12. I need like...eleventy billion tricks. I do.

This is a sponsored post about bathroom habits written by me on behalf of Cottonelle. And no, I'm not talking about brushing our teeth, friends.  Little um...*ahem* lower. You know, down there.

10 reasons why I'm not supermom

10 reasons why I'm not SuperMom and why I never will be 1. I get annoyed with my kids.  If I lived with you, I'd probably get annoyed with you too.  (To be fair, I'm fairly certain I've annoyed them at least twice in their lives...it was a really long time ago and I'm sure they've ...

Constipation: Pregnancy’s Dirty Little Secret #DulcoEasePink

dulco ease pink

I had many blissful years of my life where I was fully unaware of constipation and all that goes along with it.  That bliss ended- came to a screeching halt, really, when I was entering my third trimester with child #1. I remember my doctor insisting that my husband join me for my 28 week ...
