Seriously? HOW is it 2019 next week? I saw meme flying around that said 2018 went like: January, January, January, January, March, April, May, July, Augus, Se-, Octo-, NoveXmas. That about, EXACTLY describes 2018, like, all years fly by, but 2018 just disappeared. For 2018, my word of the year has . . .
Chanuka Candle Musings
Were headed into 2019 and I am spending lots of time reflecting on the past year - how it went and what I can improve on. This is a post I wrote before I had a blog, in fact this Chanuka Candle Musings was one of the articles I wrote that had people telling me that in 2018 I should start my own . . .
Plum Paper Planner Review
I’ve always been a paper in hand girl. The whole “go browse my site” when I show interest in a product really doesn’t work for me. If you want a guaranteed buy - send me a catalog. And it’s the exact same way with planners. I CANNOT use an electronic planner. I just need to have it in my hands. I’ve . . .
Quick And Easy Shawarma
Over the last 7 months I've been on a weight loss journey. As every journey is there are ups and downs. I've lost about 37lb and I'm working on more. With my sister getting engaged last week and a wedding to look forward to I have all the more incentive to drop more and get even healthier . . .

Cleaning with Norwex
I was originally introduced to Norwex in a kind of offhand way. I purchased a bag that seemed to be getting dark in some spots and was told a Norwex cloth would help it. I posted on my timeline asking for a consultant and was recommended Robin, she sent me an incredible package with samples and I . . .
Help Me! I’m Overwhelmed
How often do you look around you and wonder how your house reached such a state, how its possible you managed to have a million and one things to do at the same time? More often then you’d like to admit? When I was writing this post. for a short minute I was going to start the post with “Have you . . .
Quick and Easy Pulled Beef Sandwiches
Tuesdays and Wednesdays are my most difficult days of the week. My husband goes to school directly from work and doesn't come home from until 8PM. My typical schedule is that when he gets home from work he takes over with the kids and I cook dinner. On the days that he's in school that really . . .
What’s Kosher at Trader Joe’s?
My summer was intended to be relaxing, I work in a school during the year so for the summer I am off work. I'm not sure what I was thinking - I have 5 kids - there is no such thing as relaxing. After a particularly difficult week I was more then ready for some me time when my friend asked me if I . . .
I want a clean Dining Room!
One of the things I was completely unprepared for in motherhood was the mess and I want a clean Dining Room. My kids can literally DESTROY my dining room in 30 seconds. For some reason, growing up I don’t recall us kids making such a mess. (Of course! we were all angels as kids!). Either that, or . . .
