Open Facebook. Read a viral post about a mom and daughter being followed in a retail store. Read another post, very similar, about another mom and her child being followed through the store. The common theme in almost all of these posts I read is that there are usually two people attempting to harm or […]

Alumni Hall is the place to stock up on everything you need to show your Volunteer spirit! […]
I know the internet has heard all about hateful resting face. In case you’ve been living under a virtual rock, it’s when a person has a permanent neutral or grouchy look on their face. People say the permanent stone face scowl can be a curse, but I promise you that there’s something much worse than […]
Like most mamas of school-age kids, my “new year” does not start on January 1st. The first day of school is what marks a brand new year for us – our calendar is full, there are changes to almost every part of our lives, and we jump right in to a brand new routine. With […]
Months ago, I saw a humorous video on Facebook showing the different kinds of moms. I thought none of the stereotypes really fit my mom style to a tee, but I had a flash of panic when I saw one: the hot mess mom. That’s the mom who is always late, wearing clothes with spit […]
Let’s face it. When things aren’t going our way it’s really hard to be thankful. Let me just give you some examples: You’re walking around in Target (in your yoga pants, with your Java Chip Frappuccino, obviously) and your child asks to go look at the toy aisle. Sure! Why not? You go to said toy […]
Nobody’s surprised when adults complain of back trouble. Yet many people are surprised to learn that babies can have trouble with their spinal health as well. Your baby will never open his mouth and say, “Oh, my aching back!” However, his back trouble will manifest itself in different ways! It’s important to understand the symptoms […]
For two years I waited for the word “Pregnant” to flash on the test screen. For two years, all I saw was “Not Pregnant.” For two years I longed for another baby to fill another bedroom. For two years, I walked by the baby aisles in hopes that someday I’d be back. For two years, […]
Hi Baby, I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since we welcomed you into our family. It’s been a wild ride already, hasn’t it? People always say you’re the happiest baby in the world, and I know it’s because you’re so loved by so many people. You would never know it, but things are […]
My family loves tacos. Like, we eat them at least once a week. So I was a little nervous to change it up on them, but I really wanted to try a healthier take on tacos. I was inspired by Erica at Simple Bites Gourmet (disclaimer: I work there!) and her Taco Tuesdays; she had […]
It’s that time of year that everyone loves…fall! So many beautiful things and happy moments are associated with this season. Fall festivals, crop harvest, pumpkin patches, leaf color changes, football games, family outings and so much more. We are so blessed to live in an area with four very distinct seasons and so much beauty […]
We’ve all heard it. “Oh, just you wait until the hit the terrible twos!” Terrible twos? How about the terrible, “I decided to lose my mind the second I blew out my candle on my first birthday”?!?! I have very strong willed children. They are active, full of energy, and like to constantly be entertained. […]
