Is that necessary??

It feels like technology is taking over every aspect of our lives.  I was at a meeting at the park yesterday and one of the gals didn't have a cell phone and the looks that came across the faces of the rest of the group was definitely surprise.  Including my own.  I believe that our children are growing up in a different world and need to be brought up to speed with working on the new technology, but I also believe that it shouldn't come with a high cost.  Let's face it … [Read more...]

Best Pals Review and Giveaway (Birthday Bash) – CLOSED

My little girl June is so girly it sometimes scares me.  As a little girl I always preferred wrestling with my brother and playing tackle football with the neighbor boys to having tea parties and wearing dresses, but my daughter is the exact opposite.  She wears dresses every single day, her favorite color is pink, she's convinced that she's a princess, and she plays will dolls all day long.  Luckily for her (and for me), I recently got the chance to review Best Pals, an amazing company run … [Read more...]

No Work Spanish – Review

As a long-term resident of New Mexico, I am constantly exposed to the Spanish language; and for over a decade I have wanted to learn how to speak and understand the language.  Not only would learning Spanish be good for my self-esteem, it would also be good for my career.  In my experience, employers tend to place a higher value on bi-lingual employees and are even willing to pay more to get them.  Alas, after four years of Spanish in high school, two years of Spanish in college, … [Read more...]

With Mother's Day just around the corner, I was really excited to review the Lovely Baby and Mommy CD by Raimond Lap.  The CD is a collection of ten unique songs, of an almost-lullaby quality about the special bond between a mommy and her baby.  With titles such as She Is A Mom,  Baby Communication, and My Closest Friend this CD is sure to be a hit.  That being said, I have to admit that, as a grown-up, I had a tough time getting through the CD my first time around.  … [Read more...]
