Baby Juliza: Month 6

Ummm. Apparently, I blinked and wound up with a 6-month-old baby on my hands. I feel like I suddenly woke up to a child with tons of personality who can sit up and is interested in real food and who has hair I have to detangle. I'm amazed at how much her hair has grown. I amazed at how much [...]

Man Style: Affordable Polos and Shorts

The best way to describe my husband's style is cool and casual. He will dress up on occasion, but he is most comfortable wearing — well — comfortable clothes and fly sneakers. So when Walmart asked me to shop for men's polos and shorts for the summer, I knew both would be right up his alley. The selection was huge! There were [...]

DIY Tie-Up Sandals for Young Fashionistas

My oldest daughter grows like a weed. So much that she wears almost the same size shoe as me. She's 8. The challenge is that I'm forced to shop in the women's section for shoes that can fit her, but a lot of the styles are just a tad too grown up for my little girl. We typically end up buying basic [...]

Amy’s Kitchen Makes It Easy to Eat Organic

Anyone who has been reading this blog for more than five minutes knows that cooking is not exactly my favorite activity. For me, it's sort of a necessary evil. I hate to use that word, but more often than not, I'm cooking because I have to feed my family rather than because I enjoy it. I keep promising myself that [...]
