**Note:  This post has been updated as of 11/17/2013** Sweetpeas!  My parents are in town (their original visit was rescheduled due to hurricane Sandy), so this will be a quick one.  So many of you had asked for more formal versions of a Thanksgiving dinner outfit, and I didn't want to leave you in the lurch.  Besides, reader Amy cracked...
Question: Hi Mamas,First, I can't thank you enough for all of your style advice - boy, do I sure need it!  Yours is one of the first emails I open each morning.  And even though my husband doesn't always appreciate the shopping-enabling, he does appreciate having a wife who looks a little cuter since discovering your blog!Anywho, I could really...

Ready For Halloween Weekend?

We are not.  I had to keep R from school today (and he missed his field trip...on a bus) and we're still just all feeling off.  By the time the cold/flu/whatever circles through all of us...someone catches something new.  I am going insane. But whatever.  It'll be fine.  Halloween is not a big deal here, ever since Raines informed me...

Then I landed on your blog, and your article on tips for pooch-hiding swimwear...and your insistence that if you feel good in a bikini, you should wear a bikini, postpartum pooch...
Mamas, it's all about the children.  I sacrifice and I sacrifice and I sacrifice for the children.  Those precious, precious children. As proof-positive of said sacrifice and of my worth as a mother (do they not go hand-in-hand?), I give you this, my latest ridonkulous creation my masterpiece:   I've titled it:  "Smug Mummy's Easter Basket." Do you not see the calligraphied "R"?  The "R"...
Reader Question: Hi mamas,I have to thank you again for your amazing blog and how much more confident I feel about how I look. It was a pretty big ego boost to be on your blog for my "punk librarian" date outfit! But I really need help now. My sister is getting married in March and I am her matron...
*****UPDATE:  Giveaway Closed!  Congrats to Janice!!***** ******************* Mamas, I went on a date.  A real one.  Where a babysitter comes to the house, the kids are excited to see her, and Mike and I walk out the door without a backwards glance - OR the baby.  I'm in high heels and he's wearing a jacket.  Like adults.  Like real parents.  It...
We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming to bring you this little gem.... The picture below was posted on my old collage buddy's facebook wall.  It's of his friend's niece and nephew.  We're re-posting it here with permission.  My friend wrote: This is a real picture of my buddy's niece and nephew years ago. I dare anyone to present a more amazingly...
