My Week: Meeting Great New Bloggers and Telling Plum District What We Want

rebeca  Friday, December 2, 2011

This has been a good week for me to meet and catch up with a few really great local bloggers. On Wednesday, I met up with Heather who blogs at Basilmomma. With two kids and a full time job, she knows what it’s like to be busy. Yet she finds time to cook amazing meals […]


Making Christmas Memories

rebeca  Friday, November 18, 2011

Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree.  In the eyes of children, they’re all 30 feet tall. ~Larry Wilde, The Merry Book of Christmas Every year I post the same question on my facebook wall: “When thinking of your childhood, what do you remember about Christmas?” Go ahead, take a minute and think […]


My First Pinterest Project: Glittery Santa’s Belly Jar

rebeca  Wednesday, October 26, 2011

I have a couple other projects in the works, but I’m excited to report that I’ve finished my first Pinterest inspired craft. I’m not a very crafty person, so this is a major accomplishment. I found this one and thought it looked super cute and fairly easy. I originally couldn’t find Martha’s glitter (as this blogger used), […]


Thoughts from my High School Reunion

rebeca  Tuesday, September 20, 2011

Have you been to your high school reunion yet? My class recently had its 15 year reunion, and I was really dreading it! In fact I actually didn’t decide to go until the day before! I was having a lot of fun connecting on facebook, but I was pretty much terrified at the thought of […]


Super Mom: How do you Do It?

rebeca  Wednesday, September 14, 2011

Something funny happened this summer. I decided not to send my oldest son to preschool summer camp, because I thought it would be fun to be able to do whatever we wanted. It was probably one of the bigger mistakes I’ve made since becoming his mother. You see, my son is a bit on the […]


DIY Projects for The Average Parent

rebeca  Sunday, August 28, 2011

Do you follow Money Saving Mom? She has an amazing DIY section on her site that has really inspired me. In fact, I came across this post about a year ago in which she challenged herself to try a home-made project every month. I thought it was a great idea, but at the time I […]


Indiana Tour: Getting to know Indiana Wines

rebeca  Monday, May 23, 2011

I bet you didn’t know that Indiana is known for its wineries? I didn’t know until moving here, but now that I’m here, it makes total sense. With its rich soil and strong growing season, Indiana provides the ideal conditions for grape growing. Now, I’m not going to lie…I really don’t know much about wine. […]


Pink Nail Polish on Little Boys? What do YOU Think?

rebeca  Wednesday, April 13, 2011

As a mother of two boys, one thing that always irks me is that in the 21st century, Barbie can be a neurosurgeon, but Ken still can’t be a nurse. I see it every day. You better never tell a little girl she can’t do something because it’s for boys only. Her parents would be […]


Problems abound for Groupon, the country’s largest daily deal site

rebeca  Thursday, February 17, 2011

It seems that Groupon just can’t get much right these days. Let me give you a rundown of some of the company’s biggest flubs to date: 1. Super Bowl ads are deemed offensive when the company appeared to be poking fun at some significant world problems. “The people of Tibet are in trouble,” actor Timothy […]


Benefits and Tips for Freezer Cooking

rebeca  Monday, February 7, 2011

Freezer cooking has become one of my favorite time and money saving activities. It all started about a year ago when a friend organized a huge cooking event with about 10 people and a total of 300 meals. We worked for 5 hours and each of us came home with 30 nutritious meals…and no dirty […]

“Oh, The Places You’ll Go” End of School-Year Tradition

It’s not too much longer till the school year comes to a close, so I wanted to share this amazing idea I found on…you guessed it…Pinterest. You all know the book Oh, The Places You’ll Go from Dr. Seuss. It’s a great graduation gift. But, Lisa from Lisa’s Workshop suggests grabbing a copy when your kid is young. At the end of each school year, give it to your child’s teacher to sign or write a note. When you’re child graduates (hard to think of!), you’ll have a lovely gift to give him/her. Lisa has even included some lovely tags in her blog post, so make sure to go check it out.
