I would say I'm sorry, if I thought that it would change your mind...

Admittedly I've slacked on this blog...
I've had A LOT going on in the last few years.
Which is not to say that other people don't, just that I did and I chose to live life instead of simply writing about it.
For a few years back, I spent more time on blogs talking about what was happening around me... never looking at the things in front of me as a participant but almost as an outside observer. Memories through photos, not laughs.

I've decided that with the children grown (19 & 20 as of today) and the husband working himself to death trying to pay off student loans, it's time for mom to get back at it. It's time for me to get a hobby, an outlet, a "thing"...

When my BFF and I started this blog it was partly because in her words I was "like Martha Stewart but like for the sweary mom crowd". I've heard I have good ideas and that I give good advice which is cool to hear though I have no idea how true it is.

I plan to try my best to come back here at least once a week. I will try to tell you about the cool new things I'm trying, products I love and of course ideas and advice on etiquette, homemaking, marriage and raising kids as a modern stay at home "sweary" mom.

Shoot me a message if you want a specific question or situation addressed...

See you soon!!

~Hospitality is Making Your Guests Feel at Home, Even if You Wish They Were at Home~

I think by this point we've all read or seen how Martha Stewart and her minions think we should treat guests. With her homemade shampoos and monogrammed robes, she's a an inspiration to us all...to a point.

A house guest should feel welcome and should never be made to feel as though their visit has caused any undue work on your part...so skip the monogrammed robe and, only make the shampoo if you were making some for yourself anyway.

Having guests doesn't have to be stressful; I have a few simple tips to help things run smoothly for you...and for them.

Housework is something you do that nobody notices until you don't do it.
~Clean your house thoroughly at least a week before your guests arrive. This way you'll have plenty of time to do all the heavy duty cleaning and not feel like a deadline is looming over you. Also, it makes quick wipe-downs and any other last minute tidying easier to do. Keeping up with this stuff will also give you more time to hang out and have …

Your Friend's Marriage: The Thin Gold Line

Some people will tell you that marriage is a magical wonderland of soul mates, great sex, and shmoopsie-poo unicorns farting roses while snacking on rainbows; I am not that person. Marriage is WORK, regardless of what anyone tells you, because it's two separate people shoehorning their lives together to become one entity while also trying to maintain a individual identity for themselves. I personally have always subscribed to the Three C's of marriage: Compromise, Concession, and above all, COMMUNICATION. Learn when to give in, learn when to give up, and learn when to talk about it. Talk about it ALL THE TIME: the stupidest things and the most important things. If you can tell your partner about how your best day ever went or how today was quiet and uneventful, it makes it so much easier to say "Hey, there is something somewhat important we should discuss because this is how I'm feeling". Your partner is not psychic, no matter much we wish them to be, and c…
