Wordless Wednesday – Great Find

Last night my family and I made our yearly trip to our local hospital’s bazaar where I spent my time perusing the used book booth.  What I found takes me back to my days listening to the Main Street Electric Parade music…. Did you post a Wordless Wednesday?  Join our linky below so Resourceful Mommy…

Living Font – The Bad Brothers ...

Though we’ve now fallen out of the habit, about two years ago it was a regular routine to read a couple of stories from my daughter’s favorite Bible story book each night before bed.  The kids were each allowed to choose a story, and my then four year old daughter would take a few minutes…

Mi loco es su loco

I want a new house. I have sung various versions of this song in the past including “I want a new couch,” “I want a new car,” and “I want a new bed…four poster.”  Generally my tune changes when I realize two things.  The first is that need and want are two very different things….

Two Years of Resourceful Mommy

Today is the two year bloggiversary of Resourceful Mommy and while part of me would like to wax philosophical about the changes that have come to my life as a result of this blog, the fact is that even as I write this I’m watching my four year old climb on a chair to pull…

Wordless Wednesday – Purple Sur...

Earlier this week I glanced over to where my tiger lilies had been, their flowers long since fallen in this late July heat, and I saw a glimmer of bright purple.  When I pushed aside the long green stalks from the lilies I found an exotic plant that I certainly did not put there.  As…

Living Font – Seek Ye First

. . . . . Several months ago I left church with a burning a desire – it literally felt like a fire inside of me – to start a Christian mom blog.  My hope was that those of us who blog about parenting, frugal living, organization, giveaways, reviews…and also happen to be Christian…could show…

Be Still…

I am going through a horrible time with one of my closest friends right now.  Long developing hurt feelings have bubbled to the surface, and I am helpless, losing sleep, unable to concentrate, waiting for a resolution.  In my perfect world every conflict would immediately bring the two parties to a table with a bottle…

Wordless Wednesday: A fun “look...

During our last vacation to Walt Disney World, I held on to my daughter’s sunglasses while she got herself situated by placing them on top of my own sunglasses, which were perched on top of my head.  By the time she was ready to go, I had already forgotten about the shiny pink princess sunglasses…

Listening to That Voice Inside You...

Every day I hear from at least one or two businesses or agencies hoping to find out more about sponsoring Twitter parties. Often I have worked either with this particular person in the past or at least with one of their colleagues. While I like to carefully screen my clients, there is an ease that…

Wordless Wednesday: Last Day of School

It’s hard to believe that an entire school year has passed. It feels like just a couple of months ago that I was sharing pictures of my first born about to go to kindergarten, sharing pictures of her first day of school… In just a couple of hours I will be the parent of a…

(photo credit: Raphael Goetter)Warning: this post is going to be about boobs, ta-tas, hooters, knockers, the life-nourishing, majestic appendages we call breasts. There will be no parenting strategies here today, but if you are a parent, chances are that this post will apply to you or someone in your life. If you are my dad,…

The Things Children Say…

Me, hugging my four year old son: “Oh, honey, I love you to pieces.” My son back to me: “Mom, I love you to cheese pizzas, too.”

Thank you to The Breakers for a wonderful three days! While my trip was not paid for by The Breakers, the experience and service were outstanding, and I wanted to share these beautiful images. My trip was for a Lifetime Moms work retreat, and as such my expenses were covered by Lifetime.

What is Your Passion?

Last Saturday I spent the evening with a couple dozen Maryland area bloggers at a MomzShare event, a quarterly blogger gathering organized by Jennifer Gerlock and Lara Dipaola. I wasn’t sure what the topic of the evening would be, but knew that there would be food, fun, and friends, both old and new. The intrinsic…

A Very Special Mother’s Day

Today my son turned four years old. His birth four years ago was the best Mother’s Day present I could have ever received. I’m blessed to share this special holiday with him. Happy Birthday, baby boy.
