Summer is fast approaching, and that means bathing suits are in our very near future here in Connecticut.  Having lost 25 pounds and counting, my swimsuits from the past few years are obviously not going to work anymore.  Too big, I say, with a big grin on my face!!

When Baby B was on the way, we weren't sure what to do about our kids' sleeping arrangements.  We have a three bedroom house and won't be moving anytime soon- nor is an addition in the budget (ever?!) so one way or another, someone will be sharing a bedroom.  My kids, if you don't know, ...

1500Threads.com Luxury Bedding – What a Mom Wants

Up until quite recently, I've only ever had 1 set of "nice" sheets.  We apparently loved them right to shreds, because a few months ago our beloved favorite sheets started to fall apart.  Too many washes and wears.  They were years old, and oh, how I loved them.  My husband did too.  I was excited ...
