Llamas are in this season

This past weekend, our family celebrated Father’s Day with my dad by going out to a llama farm near his girlfriend’s house. Because llamas are totally “in” this season. The kids and adults all had a blast hanging out with the llamas and feeding them. It was something new and different and fun that our family did, not something I was planning to blog about. At least, I wasn’t until I got an email from the fine PR folks behind {Read More}

Movie Review: Finding Dory

Mr. Grey (Mykl) and I attended an advanced screening of Finding Dory for date night earlier this week. Enjoy his spoiler-free review!   A little back story 13 years ago, a friend of mine who’s first-born was only a few months old shared his experience of seeing Finding Nemo. Specifically, the first few harrowing minutes when Marlin’s wife and all but one egg (Nemo) was lost in the blink of an eye. This was a bit too close for comfort {Read More}

Disney Trailer: Moana

Does the ocean call to you? I don’t know about you, but I feel like the ocean is always calling me. Unfortunately, I live in MN. Lots of lakes, more beachline than California, but no oceans. Sad panda. Disney recently released the first trailer for the movie, and I have to admit, I have mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, I’m bummed there isn’t much of Moana in the teaser. She’s the next Disney princess, so I’m interested {Read More}

Sexiest Dads Alive?

I think these babywearing, dancing dads might just be the very best eye candy I’ve ever come across. Babywearing. Dancing. Choreography. Confidence. Yup, this is awesome. GroovaRoo, a San Diego-based dance studio, has been making waves with videos of their classes where parents dance while babywearing. The classes aren’t just for moms, either. As you can see in the video above, dads have gotten in on the action, too. Is this the next new fitness craze? I don’t know. But {Read More}

On Being A Quitter

Sometimes I feel like a failure for being a quitter. Then I realize that I’m not superwoman, I don’t have magic undies or special powers, and it’s totally ok to not be everything to everyone at every time. There. I said it. And I’m ok with being a quitter sometimes. Quitting This Past Weekend Like this past weekend. I decided to try one of those low-carb, low-sugar diets because “keto” and “paleo” seem to be all the rage. And maybe {Read More}

Dell XPS 13 Review Part Deux

Last week I shared how the Dell XPS 13 ultrabook measures up to what moms really want in a laptop. Although I think I got it mostly right, I have to admit – my post was a lil’ biased because it was based on my experiences as a working mom and my business needs. So I decided to write a Part Deux of my review. You’ll still get some bias from me (it is my blog after all), but I {Read More}

What Working Moms Really Want In A Laptop

When it comes to what working moms really want in a laptop, it seems like most manufacturers focus on the technical specs. Specs are nice, but I’ll be honest, they’re not the most important thing to me when I’m shopping for a new computer. My work is, followed closely by this guy. When Intel and Dell first approached me about working together on a review for the Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook, they led with some taglines and specs, including this {Read More}
