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 […]

Show & Tell Tuesday: Episode 7

Show and Tell

It’s as simple as this. I’ve got some stuff I want to show you so every week I’m doing it old school. It’s time for Show & Tell! Because some people like a good video prompt now and again, I’m encouraging you to participate. If you want to do so, I only have a few […]

Is That All There Is?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Songs show up in my iTunes library without my knowledge of how they got there. Songs like “Is That All There Is?” – a live performance of song Peggy Lee made famous in the early 60s. The version in my musical cabinetry is a live performance sung by Sandra Bernhard, the comedienne known for her […]

Show & Tell Tuesday: Episode 6

I’ve been making videos SIX STRAIGHT WEEKS in a row! I’d say that makes a link-up better than any I know of. I tried doing this strictly through YouTube but they’ve decided that video responses and link-ups just aren’t as cool as they used to be. So here’s a glimpse at Episode 6 of my […]

Lessons My Son Learned At Tuckerton Seaport

DSC05259

At seven years old, I’m starting to realize my son is spoiled. I don’t mean in a disciplinary way. He has manners and is generally polite. He also has a lot of stuff but let’s face it – that’s the plight of the only child. When I say “spoiled,” I’m realizing that he hasn’t been exposed […]

For The Man Who Has Everything

DSC05209

I’m declaring it Men’s Week on my blog. Because I know you’re out there. I know you read my blog. Yes, men read my mommy blog. Truth be told, I totally do not consider this a “mommy blog” but I’m frequently lumped in that group. Frankly, you can call me whatever you want as long […]

All The Ways To Say… Why did I take that picture? {Giveaway}

bookstome-giveaway

A few short months ago, I made an infomercial highly entertaining video describing all of the benefits of using a service like BooksTo.Me. And I wrote a very informative post about what it was all about including a highly pinnable image. But just in case I can’t convince you to click back and read the entire post […]

Show & Tell Tuesday: Episode 1

You know how kids have show & tell in school? Actually, kids don’t even have show & tell very often anymore. God forbid they should talk about anything non-school-related when there’s learnin’ to be had. But let’s face it. Kids like to show off the cool stuff they have. Not to make other kids jealous […]

Getting Your Kids to Talk at the Table

Kid Conversations

From the moment my son learned to form words, he has literally never. shut. up. I’m not complaining. I’m a talker. I come from a family of talkers. I’m also a nervous talker. When it’s quiet, I feel the need to fill up the silence, which I find really odd because when I’m alone, I […]
