Why I’m in l-o-v-e with Alphabet Photography

As far back as I can remember, I’ve loved photography. As a shutterbug, the walls of my home are covered in photos of all types. Family photos, baby photos, pet photos, photos of models who came with the frame (seriously, we took two pictures out of a collage and I still haven’t figured out what […]

We’ve Got Pac-Man Fever and There’s Only One Cure!

My husband loves video games. Actually, that’s putting it mildly. If left alone without supervision, my husband could spend an entire weekend shooting zombies, racing cars, playing baseball, and rocking out on Guitar Hero. All of it thanks to that little white box that sits under our DVD player. Of course, ever since our little […]

Winter Shopping with Cookie’s Kids

I used to hate shopping. I never understood how people could window shop. I was the one who wanted to get what I need and get out. No dilly-dallying for me…until my daughter was born. There isn’t a pastime I enjoy more than shopping for her. There are so many uber cute kids styles out […]

Seventh Generation Introduces Wee Generation (Plus a Giveaway!)

Before I had my daughter I didn’t think much about what I put on or in my body. I ate with reckless abandon and used whatever product smelled great or worked really well. When I got pregnant, I knew I’d have to be more cautious. No more toxic hair dye. No sushi. No caffeine. No […]

Our Amazing “Amazing Spider-Man Movie Night”

My husband is kind of a self-proclaimed geek when it comes to comic book movies, so when I told him that I had received an advance copy of The Amazing Spider-Man DVD (a full week before its November 9 release date), he got pretty excited. (You may remember from my Men in Black 3 blog […]

See MIB3 Two Weeks Early!

Before our daughter was born, my husband and I used to go to the movies at least once a month. Giant popcorn (with extra butter), giant soda, gummy worms. In the two years since she’s been born, we’ve visited our local theater exactly zero times. That’s right, not once. Yeah, these days we’re a “wait […]

Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40 Review

When I was first asked to speak this past weekend about the new Graco SnugRide Click Connect 40 at Babies R Us, I was so excited because Graco is a brand that I trust. In fact, we had the Graco Snugride 35 for my daughter and absolutely loved it. I spent tons of time researching […]

How I Quit Smoking (And How a Blueprint Can Help You, Too)

I’m proud to call myself an ex-smoker. It was a habit that dogged me for about 10 years until, one day, my husband and I decided to quit. Of course, the main reason we did it was because we wanted to start a family. The rewards that came with quitting (one beautiful baby girl) far […]

Papa Don’t Preach: A Zevia Soda Review

When it comes to soda, I’m more of a connoisseur than momma is (see also: ice cream, fish sticks, giant burgers, anything with bacon). So when she asked me if I’d like to taste and review six flavors of Zevia soda, I eagerly accepted. And when an assorted six-pack of the fizzy concoction arrived in […]


  We’d been talking for months about getting the little diva her very own chair. Not that we mind it when she cuddles up with us on the couch, but since she’s already got her own craft table, it seemed like a chair was the next logical piece of furniture that a 21-month-old might need. […]
