(And Maybe a Few Captions) For those of you who were part of the 2014 Type-A Parent conference in Atlanta (speakers, sponsors, attendees, roomies), thank you for making it an amazing weekend. Please relive the memories with me. And if you weren’t able to attend, please enjoy a few glimpses of what you missed.  On […]

Mother and Son Ice Bucket Challenge

Typically, I’m the last one in on an internet meme or sensation. As full proof of that, I’m still not entirely sure what Gangnam Style is (except that it’s Korean and my son loves it). I’ll admit that I’ve heard a little bit about this “ice bucket challenge” but only enough to know that it’s […]

Show & Tell Tuesday: Episode 13

Show and Tell

It’s a cool rainy day here in the suburbs of Baltimore, Maryland but last week, the sun was shining telling me it was right time to get out and… MOW THE LAWN. I’m not normally the lawn mower in the family but I’ve taken over the duties for the summer and here’s the one thing […]

One Day, he’ll thank me for this app

It’s often debated how much a blogger should involve their children in the online world. We tell some of their stories and share lots of their pictures. And then we wonder how much is too much? My son Evan has been a big part of my blog since I started in 2009 but not because […]

Show & Tell Tuesday: Episode 12

Show and Tell

I’m almost to episode 13 which would give me a full season of Show & Tell Tuesday. Don’t 13 episodes make a season? Then I can start selling it as a boxed set with never before seen footage! And exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews! Or I can just keep filming stuff like this. It’s a little technical […]

Blogger Bash NYC: Mom’s Day Out

IMG_2542

While nobody emailed me last week wondering where my Field Trip Friday post was, I know it was on your mind. You were wondering why, if I promised to take my son on a fabulous (used loosely) excursion every week to make the most of summer, there was no post last Friday. My Field Trip […]

Show & Tell Tuesday: Episode 11

It’s getting real now. I’m up to 11 episodes of Show & Tell Tuesday. At this rate, I’m going to have 12 episodes soon! I’ll be honest, though. I kind of ran out of time to do a video at home like a real show & tell so instead, I took it on the road. As soon […]

Have a Ball on National Ice Cream Day!

National Ice Cream Day

Have I got some good news for you… It’s Sunday! And while that might typically mean the day when the weekend comes to a close and everyone prepares for the work week (and in some cases, the school week) ahead, the third Sunday in July stands for something different. It is, indeed, National Ice Cream […]

For Those of You New to The World of Fadra

All Things Fadra

I’m so stressed about the upcoming week. Not only am I continuing to tear apart every single drawer/cabinet/closet in my house in an attempt to live with less stuff but I’ve got a major project and several sponsored posts all due in the next two weeks. In addition to that, I’ve got two scheduled trips. […]

Show & Tell Tuesday: Episode 9

Show and Tell

This week, I’ve got something HOT to show you and it’s all because of a book I’m reading. It’s called “Does This Clutter Make My Butt Look Fat?” (Answer: yes). So as I’m going through every single corner of my house, I’m asking some hard questions and coming up with some easy answers: IT’S GOT […]

Show & Tell Tuesday: Episode 8

Show and Tell

You guys. This is my EIGHTH episode. Another five episodes and it will be like I just filmed a major network series while I sit and anxiously hope it gets picked up as a mid-season replacement. (Note to entertainment network executives: My agent is, um, on vacation so you can send all your inquiries directly […]
