Today, as I was driving down the street listening to my littlest cackling at the movie she was watching from the back seat (don’t judge me, my moments of peace are few and far between), my mind wandered to the day I met my husband. My first thought was, “I don’t ever want to forget how amazing that day felt.”

OK, you and I may not want to admit it, but fall is upon us. Even though we aren’t brandishing our bare skin in this cooler weather, we can keep our sexy summer skin – even under our sweaters. With my patented (no, not really) three-step routine of “polish-primp-pamper” you will have healthy, glowing, supple skin all season long.
Even though we’re a mostly organic household, my kids are not immune to the marketing and advertising ploys of the big pre-packaged food companies out there. Not a grocery trip goes by where I don’t hear, “Mom, can we pleeeeeaaaase get this!” I’m working on teaching them how to find the healthy alternative to the chemical and dye filled kids’ snacks on the shelves today. So I’m coaching them through label reading and the difference between “natural” and “organic.”
When I decided I wanted to have a third child, I knew I was increasing the monthly budget needed to support ourselves as a family, but I didn’t take into account the side stuff, like birthday parties. Birthday parties have taken on a life of their own around here. I liken them to miniature Oscar parties, complete with swag bags and catered buffet. But I propose a move back to the basics.
I’m all about streamlining the morning get-ready-for-school process. With three kids and a husband who all insist they are absolutely starving the second they get out of bed, I spend time searching for a breakfast that would be easy to prepare and more filing than a bowl of cold cereal. The answer, Bombshells, is organic breakfast bakes.
More often than I care to admit, I fall asleep without washing my face. I live with the repercussions of blemishes, premature aging, and overall oiliness, meaning I end up needing more skin care products and costing myself more money, not to mention I’m old enough to know better. Why? Why in the world do I do this to myself? Bad habits, baby, they’re hard to break.
Being organized is one of those elusive ways of life for me, like being a Zen master or not having a Facebook account. In my constant striving for some semblance of order, I have learned to keep it simple. Whoever said “less is more” actually knew what they were talking about. When you have less stuff, it’s easier to keep track of it; that’s a given. But where do you cut back and what do you leave out?
