Standing Firm: Great Advice from One Mom to Another

It's time for another edition of "I lost my mom marbles" today! 
Aren't you lucky that you get to read about my hair pulling, mother skill-doubting episodes? - Everyone's all like

Yesterday, I took the kids to the pool after work. 
I should have known better because R1 was tired and didn't even want to go in the first place. 
We get there during pool break so R2 plays in the baby pool until the whistle blows and I tell R2 to get her floaties on because we were going into the big pool. 
Enjoy the following scene: 

"Reese, put your floaties on,"
"No, princetheth don't wawah foatieth!"
"Remember our plan? You got to play in the baby pool and now it's Ryder's turn, let's go."
I reach for her. She runs away.
"Leab me awone! I want da baby pool! I don't want foatieth!" 

This is about the time I look up to see 2 sets of mother eyes on me, watching my every move. I tried 2 more times to convince her to come with us, even walking out of the baby pool area, bound and determined that she wasn't going to run the show. I even pepped talked myself "You are the boss, you are their mother, stay in control." 

And then I remember one of my best friends' similar situations with her kids. She always keeps her cool but stays firm in her punishments, even when they aren't ideal for her. I realized that it was time to leave the pool. R1 hadn't even gotten his feet wet yet and I knew he would be mad but I couldn't let R2 get away with yelling at me and refusing directions.

So I took a deep breath, picked R2 up, grabbed R1's hand and walked out of the pool. 

You would have thought I set fired to their toys, gave away their dog, said Santa wasn't real and Christmas was cancelled. Screaming. Kicking. Screeching. Snot flying. - Taking my children out in public is like playing Russian Roulette... Today I lost hard core

It was a hot mess.

I get home, take R2 to her room and wipe the sweat from my face. I felt like I had just ran a race with a big sweaty Sumo wrestler strapped to my back.

After I calmed down, I texted my friend.
She's like my "WWJD" bracelet, only for mom emergencies.

I told her about what happened and how much they screamed when I decided the best thing to do was just leave the pool. Even though I was the one who asked them if they wanted to go, I still felt like leaving was my only option after R2 acted so out of control.  She gave me great advice that I wanted to share with you, just in case you ever get the Sumo mom sweats like me.

"It's a learning moment for them. Always follow through. The fight is temporary but the lesson is forever! It definitely feels like we are punishing ourselves but it will be worth it in a few years when they know they can't push the limits!

She's so right and I am happy for the reminder!
So after a long talk with both children and bedtime, I did what any mother would do... - Drinking alone? No no, don't be silly. My children are asleep in the other room.

Asians, Murder & Love: 5 Books To Read This Summer


Even though there are way more than 5 things I could talk your leg off about right now, I thought I would go with a theme. 

And if you know me, than you know I lerv talking about books! So here are 5 books that I NEED to get my hands on, like yesterday! 

 #1. Love Does by Bob Goff: 
(For if you're feeling philosophical or need to be enlightened)

From GoodReads: As a college student he spent 16 days in the Pacific Ocean with five guys and a crate of canned meat. As a father he took his kids on a world tour to eat ice cream with heads of state. He made friends in Uganda, and they liked him so much he became the Ugandan consul. He pursued his wife for three years before she agreed to date him. His grades weren't good enough to get into law school, so he sat on a bench outside the Dean's office for seven days until they finally let him enroll. Bob Goff has become something of a legend, and his friends consider him the world's best-kept secret. Those same friends have long insisted he write a book. What follows are paradigm shifts, musings, and stories from one of the world's most delightfully engaging and winsome people. What fuels his impact? Love. But it's not the kind of love that stops at thoughts and feelings. Bob's love takes action. Bob believes "Love Does."
When "Love Does," life gets interesting. Each day turns into a hilarious, whimsical, meaningful chance that makes faith simple and real. Each chapter is a story that forms a book, a life. And this is one life you don't want to miss.

#2: 642 Things To Write About
(For if you have the itch to not only read this summer but write as well!) 

No, they aren't exaggerating. This diary literally has 642 prompts to write about. I actually have an idea for dis here blog that was inspired by this book and I hope to share with everyone soon! If you have an itch to write or are in the middle of the dreaded writer's block, than this book can surely inspire you. 
Some of the questions tug at your heart and make you dig deep, and other are just plain silly, like "You are an astronaut. Describe your perfect day." 
One that made me laugh and tell myself I'd have to come back to it later asked me to describe, in detail, a scene set in Argentina in 1932 and include a teacup in the story. Last night I wrote about the first time I got caught in a lie (it involved a Polly Pocket in 1993). 
Anyhooters, pick this one up this summer if you are looking to not just read, but write as well! Also, as you can see in the picture, adding an ice cold apple ale (or any alcohol for that matter) is always a good idea! 

#3: Love All, by Callie Wright 

(For those of you looking for a good family drama with lots of juicy details!) 

From Goodreads: It’s the spring of 1994 in Cooperstown, New York, and Joanie Cole, the beloved matriarch of the Obermeyer family, has unexpectedly died in her sleep. Now, for the first time, three generations are living together under one roof and are quickly encroaching on one another’s fragile orbits. Eighty-six-year-old Bob Cole is adrift in his daughter’s house without his wife. Anne Obermeyer is increasingly suspicious of her husband, Hugh’s, late nights and missed dinners, and Hugh, principal of the town’s preschool, is terrified that a scandal at school will erupt and devastate his life. Fifteen-year-old tennis-team hopeful Julia is caught in a love triangle with Sam and Carl, her would-be teammates and two best friends, while her brother, Teddy, the star pitcher of Cooperstown High, will soon catch sight of something that will change his family forever. 

At the heart of the Obermeyers’ present-day tremors is the scandal of The Sex Cure, a thinly veiled roman à clef from the 1960s, which shook the small village of Cooperstown to the core. When Anne discovers a battered copy underneath her parents’ old mattress, the Obermeyers cannot escape the family secrets that come rushing to the surface. With its heartbreaking insight into the messy imperfections of family, love, and growing up, Love All is an irresistible comic story of coming-of-age—at any age.

#4: Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kawn

(For those of you needing a trashy, easy read, this book made me think about what would happen if one of the Kardashians had a baby with that crazy Asian from The Hangover! (As opposed the hot-tempered rapper, which is sooo isn't as cool) 

From GoodReads: Crazy Rich Asians is the outrageously funny debut novel about three super-rich, pedigreed Chinese families and the gossip, backbiting, and scheming that occurs when the heir to one of the most massive fortunes in Asia brings home his ABC (American-born Chinese) girlfriend to the wedding of the season. When Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home, long drives to explore the island, and quality time with the man she might one day marry. What she doesn't know is that Nick's family home happens to look like a palace, that she'll ride in more private planes than cars, and that with one of Asia's most eligible bachelors on her arm, Rachel might as well have a target on her back. Initiated into a world of dynastic splendor beyond imagination, Rachel meets Astrid, the It Girl of Singapore society; Eddie, whose family practically lives in the pages of the Hong Kong socialite magazines; and Eleanor, Nick's formidable mother, a woman who has very strong feelings about who her son should--and should not--marry. Uproarious, addictive, and filled with jaw-dropping opulence, Crazy Rich Asians is an insider's look at the Asian JetSet; a perfect depiction of the clash between old money and new money; between Overseas Chinese and Mainland Chinese; and a fabulous novel about what it means to be young, in love, and gloriously, crazily rich.

#5 The Execution of Noa P. Singleton

(For those of you needing a little thrill and excitement!) The description compared it to Gone Girl, so I was like, "DUH!"

From GoodReads: Noa P. Singleton never spoke a word in her own defense throughout a brief trial that ended with a jury finding her guilty of first-degree murder. Ten years later, having accepted her fate, she sits on death row in a maximum-security penitentiary, just six months away from her execution date. 

Seemingly out of the blue, she is visited by Marlene Dixon, a high-powered Philadelphia attorney who is also the mother of the woman Noa was imprisoned for killing. Marlene tells Noa that she has changed her mind about the death penalty and Noa’s sentence, and will do everything in her considerable power to convince the governor to commute the sentence to life in prison, in return for the one thing Noa is unwilling to trade: her story.
Marlene desperately wants Noa to reveal the events that led to her daughter’s death – events that Noa has never shared with a soul. With death looming, Marlene believes that Noa may finally give her the answers she needs, though Noa is far from convinced that Marlene deserves the salvation she alone can deliver. Inextricably linked by murder but with very different goals, Noa and Marlene wrestle with the sentences life itself can impose while they confront the best and worst of what makes us human in this haunting tale of love, anguish, and deception.

Seriously, though. There are like, 50 books out there right now that I can't wait to get my hands on. Search through Entertainment Weekly's Top 10 Must List for Beach Reads or Amazon's Beach Read List for a long line of GREAT books. 

And now, lovelies, thanks to Whit, I will leave you for the weekend with this undeniably fun and gotta dance to it song: #Beautiful by Mariah Carey. 

I have no idea why the hashtag was ness, but apparently it was. Whatever the trendy name, this song never fails to make me dance in my car like a lunatic and I love it! 


What am I currently up to? 

Eating & Drinking:  Lots of fresh veggies! There's a local farmer's market in my work parking lot every Tuesday morning, plus there's just something about veggies in the summer time! Also, I had my first martini! Granted, it was girlie alcohol with not much kick but it was  in a fancy glass,  so it totally still counts! 

Capturing: My kiddos in motion this summer. It's tough to keep up! 

 Releasing: Negative people, thoughts and doubts: 

Sending: A "welcome to your new home package" to one of my besties, who just moved across the country to start her new life as a wife and pharmacist and I am so proud and happy for her! 

Recommending: The Engagements by J. Courtney Sullivan

Reading: Redesigning Rose by my fellow Novel Escapes Reviewer (and creator of the site) Lydia Laceby. Redesigning Rose is the perfect girl power book and it's been so fun to read about a character is is going through alot of the same stuff that I am! Rose and the other characters in this book are so personable and fun! I SO would love for them to be real people I could have drinks with! 

Listening To: Josh Abbott Band featuring Kasey Musgraves: Oh, Tonight: 

Thinking About: How blessed I am to be in a truly happier place, where I am being myself and letting those who love me be close and those who don't...well just letting them go. 

Making a huge life change is like cleaning out your closet- you find the old pieces you have always loved but almost forgotten about and you get to purge the ones that you never really liked anyway. And on top of it all, you get to make way for more room for new things! 

Hap Hap Happy! 

A Tangled theme birthday party for Reese next weekend! I bought real life "floating lights" to release and I hope she feels just like Rapunzel! Plus, I am making a 20 foot long braid out of yarn for her cake table! 

What are you currently up to?? 

The Great Great Gatsby

Last week I had the most amazing time at a Gatsby inspired Garden Party with my mom, grandma and sisters. We had so much fun that I had to document as much as I could! If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen a couple random photos but I thought I would elaborate on them! 

First, the food! Lemon cupcakes with raspberry icing, gourmet cheese and shot classes filled with cilantro infused shrimp ceviche..and the drinks...

 "Every Friday five crates of oranges and lemons arrived from a fruiterer in New York — every Monday these same oranges and lemons left his back door in a pyramid of pulpless halves...At least once a fortnight a corps of caterers came down with several hundred feet of canvas and enough colored lights to make a Christmas tree of Gatsby’s enormous garden. On buffet tables, garnished with glistening hors-d’oeuvre, spiced baked hams crowded against salads of harlequin designs and pastry pigs and turkeys bewitched to a dark gold. In the main hall a bar with a real brass rail was set up, and stocked with gins and liquors and with cordials so long forgotten that most of his female guests were too young to know one from another." -Chapter 3, The Great Gatsby

My favorite was the French 75 (middle):
1 lemon
3 tablespoons (1 1/2 ounces) gin
1 1/2 tablespoons (3/4 ounce) fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce) simple syrup
1 cup ice cubes
1/4 cup (2 ounces) dry sparkling wine, such as brut Champagne, chilled

Also, the Rum Punch was to die for! 
2 oz  Rum

2 oz Unsweetened Cranberry Juice
1 oz Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
1 dash Bitters
Add all ingredients to a mixing glass and stir together without ice.

Pour into a rocks glass filled with crushed ice and stir gently.
Garnish with an orange wheel.

Even the people were enchanting. One woman played the most beautiful Gershwin's Summertime, and this couple dressed up and looks so cute together! 

The hotel is called the Elms Hotel & Spa. It was built in 1912 and still houses a natural spring spa in the basement of the hotel. It's beautiful and I want to go back there to experience their 5 star spa so bad! We took a tour and I fell in love! Even the air is infused with eucalyptus! 

Here's the group of lovely ladies I had the pleasure of spending this fun afternoon with!

My grandma Terry and little sister Tawni in the back and my mom, sister Jessica (and baby Lucy!) and me in the front! We took a horse drawn carriage ride through the historic downtown! 

It's been a week and I am still talking about the garden party. I am so happy I went and had such a great time with my family. Plus, anything that combines my family, my favorite book AND cocktails is pretty much a WIN WIN situation in my book! 

Random Wednesday

This is a pretty random post so I thought it would be perfect for Shanna Said So's Random Wednesday Link Up! 

Remember when I told you my BFFs and I spent our sleepover watching hilarious YouTube videos and laughed until we cried? 

Well today, I am in an extra great mood and wanted to spread that love so I thought it was the perfect time to share the videos! 


 "Who cares about the baby??" LOL

 Okay, first watch this and listen to the girl in the front, then rewatch and pay attention to the mom in the back ground! "Hometown!" LOL and yes, yes she IS hiccuping. 

  I dare you not to smile when you watch this!  

And, what I consider to be the jaggernaut of ALL funny kid YouTube videos: Cassie and the Monster:

Weekend Shenannies

Sami's Shenanigans

Linking up with Sam Sam Sami! 

1. Friday night: R1's first trip to the ER. We discovered he must be pretty allergic to bee or wasp stings. We don't know what exactly stung him but he was sent home from summer school after it swelled up. After calling my friend who is an FNP, I decided to take him to the ER after she said that the swelling that had spread to his eye could also spread to his throat, potentially. Once we got to the ER, we found a rash covering his chest as well. His poor ear was so swollen that it tore the skin. Seriously scary moment for this mama! After steroids and benedryl, my champ is doing fine, but an Epipen is definitely in our future! 

2. My #OOTD for my BFF Stephanie's Breakfast At Tiffany's Bridal Shower. I was nervous to put together a trendy outfit but ended up feeling great and loving it! Necklace: Charming Charlie's, Dress: Target, Cardy: Old Navy.

3. R2, aka "Rapunzel" wore a flower girl dress all afternoon Sunday. And if you're wearing a princess wedding dress, apparently that means you must twirl wherever and whenever possible. Any girl who wears a gown to do laundry in and go to the park in is a girl after my own heart...

4. Beers at Buffalo Wild Wings for just goes perfectly together, am I right? 

5. Thought I would snap a quick picture of one happy girl this weekend. I was literally driving in the car by myself and looked in my rear view and noticed this huge smile on my face. So, being a blogger and all, I had to document the fact that my eyes are sparkling, I am smiling and I feel good about's been a long time coming! 

6. A snapshot of the bridal shower cake. Breakfast at Tiffany's was also playing on a big screen during the shower, so cute! 

7. A new book that I read about last night that I am really interested in! It's called Engagement and it's about the evolution of diamonds and America's obsession with engagement rings. It's a fiction novel but based on real events and people, including the woman behind the famous "Diamonds are forever" ad campaign. Who doesn't love bling?

8. My weekend ended with a nonfat caramel macchiato from my peeps at Starbucks. Just plain wonderful. 

Events that aren't featured include moments I was having so much fun that I forgot to take pictures. Like letting R1 cook dinner with me, letting R2 try on her swim suits, the funnest trip to Target in the history of time and being with my two best friends, Steph and Morgan. Morgan and I stayed at Steph's new home, which is out of this world beautiful. I was so happy to be with the two friends who have known me longer than any other friends in the world and love me unconditionally. We drank wine, ate at a Mexican restaurant,  told stories and then watched funny YouTube videos in our pajamas until we couldn't keep our eyes open. Does it get any better than that, really? I think one post this week will be dedicated to sharing the videos that had us laughing uncontrollably! You guys will love them! 

That's all for now folks. Hope you had as much fun as I did this weekend! 

Things You Didn't Think You'd Care To Know

This here lady had me laughing my arse off this morning with her answers to these questions, so I thought, "what the hay" and decided to answer them myself! Read Steph's answers here and thank me later.

6. Do you like hot-dogs? *hangs head in shame. I do. I love them. I can't help it. I've even watched how they're made in the factories hoping to gross myself out of eating them but it didn't help. I just eat them faster now so I won't think about it as much.

12. Favorite hobby?Probably this blog, but I also love to de-stress by making greeting cards and felt flowers. And reading, mcduh.

Wednesday's 4 Favorites

Happy Hump Day Friends! 
What are currently my 4 Favorite Things? 
Let's see! 

Gold Jewelry has made its debut in my collection and this week, I can't stop loving it! The necklace and bracelets are from Charming Charlie and the earrings were made by a friend!

Next? Probably these songs I've been listening to on repeat. Yes, yes I know they are more teeny than mid twenties girl, but I just can't help it. My good moods I've been in lately just need some upbeat tunes to go with them! :) 

My 3rd favorite is a recipe for a great summer salad! 
I had a blogger fail and haven't taken photos the last two times I've made it but just trust me, it's amazing! 

And last but not least, I can't stop starring at these beautiful things! 

It was so fun to think of this list! 

And next on my to do list is to GET BACK TO READING!
I have been slacking in the MOST EXTREME WAY.
It's just with moving, getting settled into my new place and having the kids, I've been a zombie each night when I crawl into bed, which is when I usually read! I am missing it so much so it's my goal to set some time aside to put my nose in a book! 

What are you reading right now? 

Weekend Shenannies

Sami's Shenanigans

Sum up my weekend shenannies in one word? FUN. 

Why? Well...

This Happened: I took my first ever #ootd pic at my mom's before going to my niece's dance recital!
Maxi skirt, cardie and vintage tee all from Old Navy and new jewelry from Charming Charlie

My mom and I took the kids to a family dairy farm that is literally 500 yards from my mom's house. Yes, my mom lives a hop, skip and a jump away from a dairy farm and a winery. She basically has the essentials at her fingertips!


We sampled lots of flavors, including Cotton Candy, Root Beer, Banana and Strawberry! Ryder picked out a bottle of banana, Reese chose strawberry and I got a bottle of coffee flavored milk, which tasted exactly like a Starbucks Frappe! SOOO yummy! I also picked up some cheese. 

It was such a cute store!

Saturday night ended they way lots of them should: a late night pizza and wine date with my mommy and watching Les Miz!  It was such a wonderful movie. I was skeptical at first because I am not into the awkwardness of people singing all the time, but I was RIVETED. 

This is what the ride home looked like. Peaceful with a capital DON'T WAKE THEM UP! 

I also started the weekend off right but doing something I've never done in my whole life.  Paying my own bills. It was exhilarating and a little scary at the same time but I am so proud of myself! These big girl pants are beginning to fit quite nicely! :) 

Sunday Ryder had T-ball practice so Reese and I hung out at the park. I had to snap pictures of her running around acting like Rapunzel. She was doing the scene in Tangled where she has just gotten out of the tower for the first time ever and is running around singing. She even grabbed grass and threw it up in the air just like in the movie...I think I have a dreamer on my hands!

Sunday night ended pretty perfectly and so I'm in a great mood and ready to tackle the week! Did you watch the season premiere of Keeping Up With The Ks? Why are they so fun to watch? Tonight's the premiere of Mistresses on ABC after The Hot Mess The Bachelorette. Do you love trash TV as much as me?

This weekend I get to shower my oldest BFF at her bridal shower, so there's lots to look forward to! 

Hope everyone else had a great weekend!
