Quick gift Poll for Moms and Dads


Father’s day is around the corner and it has got me thinking about some things that I can’t resist but share.

I’m an easy-to-please kind of momma that does not require much and I don’t mind receiving a Mother’s day gifts the everyone in my household could enjoy, like a Kitchenaid Mixer. However, I’m curious as to how my fellow moms and bloggers feel about this idea.

Would you rather be gifted with something only you can use or you don’t mind sharing?

Please leave your answer in the comments area below. I’m really curious about your preferences.

“Start Doing What You Want.” Warren Buffet

9. Warren Buffett, 86

“There comes a time when you ought to start doing what you want. Take a job that you love. You will jump out of bed in the morning. I think you are out of your mind if you keep taking jobs that you don’t like because you think it will look good on your resume. Isn’t that a little like saving up sex for your old age?”    Warren Buffet

Life Lessons from Mariska Hargitay

Hargitay has a very life-affirming personality now, thanks in no small part to her father. She told Good Housekeeping,  “The message I got from my father was that life is hard, but you just don’t quit,” Hargitay says. “I am grateful that I didn’t let fear get the best of me. It only holds you back from possibilities and greatness. You’ve got to kick fear to the side, because the payoff is huge.”

She also said, “I don’t focus on what I can’t control,” saying. “If I can’t control it, let’s move on. I think that we have all been swallowed up in ‘shoulda-woulda-coulda.’ You figure it out and you walk tall and go through it. Some days it’s chicken, and some days it’s feathers.” Smart advice.

My Top 5 Ways to Unwind at the end of a Stressful Day

Stress is not fun, but everyone experiences it. Your body experiences stress when it’s put through any situation that brings about change. Stress is a normal part of life. However, an excessive amount is stress is what leads to burnout and health problems.
Everyone experiences stress, but our stress levels depend on our daily activities. Let’s consider parents with little children, for example. Kids keep you on your toes. Literally. There’s never a dull moment in my house with 3 boys under 7. If they’re not running around, they’re sliding down the steps, racing toys on the wood floors, or getting on each other’s nerves.

Most evening when we get home from work, Hubby and I are busy trying to get dinner ready, help with homework and get the kids in bed by 8:00 pm. Once the kids are in bed, I spend about 30 to 45 minutes every night about three nights per week to de-stress in my own way.

1) Start (or continue) a craft project

2) Exercise in my basement (cardio/weights)


3) Read an interesting book (not too interesting that I can’t put it down)

4) Listen to a broadcast/podcast (Joyce Meyer, Tony Evans, Focus on the Family, etc.)

5) Review and edit previously taken photographs

So, what are some ways you UNWIND after a long day?
