My Top 5 TV Moms [Because Prompts are Fun]

Over the years I’ve observed a lot of moms.  Some perfect, some less than so…. many were very funny.  They’ve come and gone while I observed them all from the comfort of my living room. That’s right, I’m talking about TV moms. My favorite TV moms tend to have the best comebacks,


Because Prompts are Fun #16 – Mom

Last week we explored some food related goodness such as recipes and foods from our childhood.  This week’s prompts are dedicated to motherhood since there’s a special holiday coming up.  That’s right, Mother’s Day is right around the corner on May 12th.  So whether you are a mother or have a mother


Foods of My Childhood [Because Prompts are Fun]

Do you ever look back at some of the things you ate as a child and wonder how you loved it? Or maybe you like something now that you loathed as a tot? Sometimes I wonder what happened.  I know I used to eat more veggies.  I have memories of it!  As


Because Prompts are Fun #15 – Food!

Doing so much reading and buying of books to read and moving that pile of books around really works up an appetite.  Okay, maybe not, but I panicked when I tried to segue between last week’s theme and this week. Anyway, as the weather (finally!) warms up we start gearing up for


Books, Books, Books! My Current Reading List [Because Prompts are Fun]

Do you love to read? Do you accumulate a stack of books in your “to be read” pile at a rapid rate?  Me too.  Unfortunately, I rarely had time to read a book of my choosing after Rissa was born.  I started carving out time almost nightly a few months before Xander


Because Prompts are Fun #14 – Books and Reading

While I read a lot of blogs, I still love me some good books.  For awhile I was making time to read again, but after Xander was born I haven’t been able to sit with physical books too often.  Need to set my priorities again! This week’s theme: BOOKS What are some


My Top 5 Baby Money Saving Tips for New Parents

One of the first things I wanted to figure out as new parents was how we could save money on baby gear. I’m not a money saving expert.  In fact, I am much better at spending than saving. Well, I guess I have some idea on how to save so you can spend.


Because Prompts are Fun #13 – Money Honey

Today is Tax Day so we figured many of you would have your mind on your money and your money on your mind today.  We’ve already filed, received and spent out refund.  Heh. Okay, so that’s not entirely true, but it’s “spoken for” and hidden away from my bestie Amazon. I really love


Because Prompts are Fun #12 – Procrastination

You know what’s ironic? I had this post about the procrastination prompt done early.  I’m not going to lie – a lot of my posts are written during the witching hour, hot on the tail of a deadline. Sometimes that deadline is my own bed on our content calendar, and sometimes it


15 Hilariously Quotable Movies [Because Prompts are Fun]

If you haven’t guessed, I like the funny. We are huge fans of comedies. Sure, we watch other stuff too, but our most watched and rewatched movies are funny ones.  The following list is based purely on which movies came to my head first for having so many great quotable lines.  It’s


Because Prompts are Fun #11 – Funny

Every year I try to think up something clever to do for an April Fools Day prank on the blog, but I haven’t been able to pull it off since the time I had my cat post about playing World of Warcraft on our gaming blog. I get hung up on it not

Because Prompts are Fun #10 – Celebrating Spring

Can you believe it is actually spring? It was snowing again yesterday so I’m not quite feeling it yet. I had a nice taste of it while in Texas last week though! One thing about going to a conference and being inspired is it fills up my brain for a few days.


Searching for Inspiration at Blissdom [Because Prompts are Fun]

Nothing boosts your creativity better than a big dose of inspiration.  There are times when I question what I’m doing, if it is worth it, and if I should scrap it and start over.  When I’m inspired, my mind is flooded with ideas.  My creativity shoots up and the words tumble forth


Because Prompts are Fun #9 – Inspiration Intervention

Ever get inspiration block? It hides your creativity and muse from you without leaving a ransom note.  You notice it missing precisely at the moment you go to use it. It’s gone. The mojo. The driving force behind whatever medium you create with: words, food, clothes, paint… I’m an ideas person, but


If I Caught a Leprechaun… [Because Prompts are Fun]

It’s almost St. Patrick’s Day, which means we’re daydreaming about shamrocks, green beer, and leprechauns.  Okay, maybe not quite, but I sure would love to locate a big pot o’ gold – wouldn’t you? (Does anyone else find it odd that I’m afraid of clowns but leprechauns don’t bother me? Well, that


Because Prompts are Fun #8 – Lucky Luck

We are almost through March already which means Saint Patrick’s Day is right around the corner.  Being part Irish I get to tell people to kiss me and rub my hair for good luck. Oh wait, the hair bit was for Trolls, wasn’t it? Not Leprechauns? Regardless, there’s this rumor going around


Feeling Like a Cloth Diaper Flunky [Because Prompts are Fun]

Once upon a time I loved cloth diapering.  I even loved doing diaper laundry.  While pregnant with Xander I looked forward to cloth diapering a newborn and packed them in my hospital bag.  I’ve used cloth with Rissa for two years – I’m a fluff veteran! I thought.  Think of all the


Because Prompts are Fun #7 – Disappointment

After last week’s discussion about cabin fever I am very disappointed that we are supposed to get several more inches of snow tomorrow.  That is not helping!  Anyway, this week we are going to help you with some more therapeutic blogging.  I know I have a confession to make that fits perfect
