Three is Perfect for ME!!!

Really it is!!!

You would think that after 14 years of raising two sons by myself people would stop asking me things like;

"Are you EVER going to get remarried?"
"Don't you want more kids?"
"Don't you get lonely?"
"Don't you want to "you know" again?'
" You’re pretty cute, nice, fun insert other complementary words here, why are you still single?"

I think this last one may be implying that there must be something WRONG with me but I will assume people just think I am so awesome that they are amazed I haven't been snatched up.

I could go on forever with the enormous list of questions people ask me, all relating to my choice to be single. Don't get me wrong, I am finally open to the idea of dating someone great IF that is what God has in store for me but he would have to be pretty freaking amazing!!!! Why? Because I LOVE my little family of three.  God blessed me with two amazing boys. He snuck my little Christopher in there right before his daddy bailed, for a reason. I don't know what Greg and I would do without him!! Yes, my boys are like night and day, which means they complement each other and me very well. I can't imagine life without them.  I do not feel like there is anything missing!!! 
Finally this year after sending out This photo of me and my boys people get it. How do I know you ask?The phone calls/texts with the, "WOW, you guys look really HAPPY".
We do don't we!
We are greatful for what we have and we love to just lay around and spend time with one another as much as we can. I can't think of anything in this world that could make me happier than my boys.

P.S. I think at a later date I may share why I chose to raise my kidos solo because I get that question ALOT, we'll see.  I am also considering dating in the coming years but not because I have a strong desire to, maybe I'll write about that too.


  1. I'm sure you guys "look" happy because you ARE! :) You are an amazing and strong woman and I don't doubt that you do everything with purpose. You also have a wonderful and supportive family. Happy New Year!

  2. Agreed with Brina. And you don't need a picture to prove it. You are an amazing mom and should give yourself props for doing it solo - b/c even with a partner, being a parent is hard work! You're raising two wonderful boys. Keep on, keepin' on! xoxo AMC

Is cutting coupons worth it?

It’s been awhile since I have taken the time to coupon. I actually got pretty good at it. I really enjoyed looking for deals and saving tons of money, but it does take time.  Time is something that I just can't seem to find enough of these days. So, over the last few months I have stopped couponing. 

Inspired by my recent reduction in pay and a Facebook post by The Krazy Coupon Lady, I decided to spend a little time and take a small trip to the store using coupons.
Here is what I got

Look at my savings
So maybe a lot of this stuff is junk, but the kids only have a few weeks left of summer break and had friends over yesterday, so I was going to buy them some crappy food as a special treat anyways. I figure if I am going to give my kids and their friends soda, an 8 oz serving is better than a regular 12 oz can.  Right?
Everything except the Activa was purchased with a coupon but it was on sale for $1.88 which is a GREAT price so I couldn’t pass it up. Okay, so I didn't get anything f…

San Francisco in a Day

I have loved San Francisco ever since I was a kid. I love the cool air, the ocean-side views, the food, the stores, the many different and unique neighborhoods and so much more.I especially love walking around pier 39. This is usually where I go when I hit the city. The smell of the salt water, fish, clam chowder and the freshly baked sour dough bread that does not taste better anywhere else on earth makes my heart skip a beat. I make the short drive over to the city by the bay every chance I get. Luckily my not so little anymore cousin loves San Francisco just as much as I do.When deciding what to do with our one full day together this past Monday, there was only one choice! This trip did not go as smoothly as all of my other trips to San Francisco but it was still fun and totally worth it. Traffic was crazy so we decided to take the Bart part of the way in. We had to try two different Bart stations and three different parking lots before we were able to find a spot to park.

Weight Loss Challenge: Week SEVEN update (LATE POST)

I did weigh in on Friday and guess what? I stayed the same for the second week in a row. This week I think I will really need to push myself to see a loss. I have about 24 more pounds to go to meet my goal which means I need to lose about 3 pounds a week from here on out. I have decided to step things up a bit in order to push through my plateau. Here is what I am going to do 1.LOG EVERYTHING EVERY DAY. I have been a little lax on this. I will be sure to track every little bite so I can more accurately assess how I am doing and what I need to change next week.
2.STEP IT UP A NOTCH. I have been active but I have been doing pretty leisurely walks. I will jog at least 2 times this week and add one more intense activity. I am thinking dancing or Zumba.

3.ADD MORE DAILY ACTIVITY. What I mean by this is that in addition to actually working out I will take every opportunity to be more active in my daily life. I can walk to the store that is less than a mile from my house when I need to get a gal…
