The Grossest Recipe I’ve Ever Loved

The Grossest Recipe I’ve Ever Loved

I’m almost a little embarrassed to share this recipe with you – both that I made it, and that I ate it AND that I liked it! But we are all friends here, right – you won’t judge me too harshly, right? RIGHT!?!?!? To give you a little of the back story – my husband was recently diagnosed with LADA ...

30 Days of Selfies

30 Days of Selfies

If you follow VTMommies on Instagram, (of course you do), you may have noticed a whole LOT of photos of me with the hashtag #30daysofselfies – way back in September.  It has taken me several months to get over the experience, and I can only write about it now.

Traveling with Children

Traveling with Children

When I was tasked with writing a post on traveling with children, I was certain that this would be the world’s shortest post.  Just don’t do it. But then I realized that not everyone has their entire family living in a three-mile radius, so traveling can’t always be avoided.  And we do travel a few times a year – as ...

The Great Purge of 2013 – How Do You Keep Clutter to a Minimum?

It’s been a looong time coming.  Two kids, the passing of grandparents, living in the same place for several years – All things that lead to accumulating Too. Much. Stuff. I admit it, I love to shop.  My husband (and daughters) refers to the UPS man as “my boyfriend.”  I have more handbags than TJ Maxx on a Tuesday after ...

Running for Beginners – Pain, Pride & (Eventually) Enjoyment

Running for Beginners – Pain, Pride & (Eventually) Enjoyment

I’ve recently started running.  Without anyone chasing me.  Odd, right?  Really though, I’ve been attending an early morning exercise class 2 – 3 times a week, but felt like I needed to step it up a bit.   Of course I’d like to lose some weight, or at least off-set the wine and carbs that I love so much.  Additionally, having ...
