Breast Cancer Awareness Month & Vitamix Giveaway

Vitamix Giveaway

As we can all tell by the pink flying everywhere it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month .... and as a coincidence I had to cancel my mammogram last month. What a crappy thing to do to myself right? You know, kids sick, can't make appointment. But reading all my friends posts about how cancer has touched their lives I know I need to get in. Such a powerful reminder to take care of me! When my friend Lori had breast cancer (she is doing great now) I made her a recipe to help with the nausea and as a joke called it Chemo Moonshine. It is something I really relied on when I was undergoing chemo for Lupus a few years ago. Since I posted it last year it has gone semi-viral on Pinterest and nothing makes me happier than having someone post that it helped or seeing people talk about it on a Breast Cancer board. Seriously, one of my favorite moments as a blogger knowing I actually helped someone going through this horrific fight feel just a tad better. Please click on the picture below for the recipe. I would be honored to have you make this for someone in your life battling chemo. Seeing what a difference posting this simple recipe made for so many people inspired me to say YES when ...

What’s Your Vacation Horror Story?

Photo credit to Flikr user Laughing Squid

Have you ever had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad vacation? You know, the ones where the kids whine the whole time, someone ends up in an urgent care, your stranded in the airport and you have no chargers for any of your devices? It's the stuff moms nightmares are made of. While I can't say we have had really, truly awful vacations as a family we have certainly had those that I would love to do over. The vacation that most often comes to mind when I think of BAD vacations is the time when I really overscheduled my young kids for 2 weeks in Florida. We went from Boca Raton to Orlando over those 14 days. With their meltdowns coming at just the time I was most looking forward to: NASA. I had wanted to visit NASA since I was a little girl. I was SO excited to go. The kids, unfortunately, wanted only to get to Disney World. As I walked around in awe at the machines that helped make one giant leap for mankind, my 5 & 7 year old whined, cried, and made me miserable. At one point I just started crying and gave up and wished that one of those rockets would fire up and take me anywhere but Earth with those kids. As a family that trip to NASA is one of the most ...
