His Braids Aren’t Funny, So Why Are They Laughing?

Last week, my beautiful and sweet boy was teased and laughed at because of his hair. He just turned 7 and is pretty sensitive as it is, so when I learned that he broke down in tears because of it, my heart just about broke. All of my kids wear their hair naturally. My two […]

No, You Can’t Have My Food: My Life as A Selfish Mom

I was raised as an only child, so from my earliest moments, I admit I may not be the best at sharing. I do try, but I’d really rather buy two packs of peanut butter m&m’s and give you one, than have you all up in my bag. Sorry, not sorry. With that said, I […]

Greek (ish) Lemon Chicken Rice Soup

My time in Greece wasn’t the most interesting of places I’ve lived, but the food, OH THE FOOD!!! Greek food is by far the best I’ve had overseas, and consistently so. I don’t recall ever having a bad Greek meal, so whenever I have the opportunity to eat at a Greek restaurant, or the ingredients […]

When The Terror Hits Close To Home

I celebrated my birthday a few days ago and it was another great one, filled with love, friendship, and family. I had dinner with the kids, went out with hubby and friends, and received the most amazing and thoughtful homemade gifts from the kids. I felt so loved and it was another reminder that my […]

Our First Holiday Season in Argentina

Although this is our second season in Argentina, this was our first Christmas here since we arrived just after the holidays last year. While I am a warm weather lover for sure, spending the holidays in 100 degree heat is a bit surreal. Considering that we are from New York and Boston, we are certainly […]

One of My Favorite Recipes: Blackened Chicken Alfredo

I try not to eat too much pasta because I just don’t enjoy it enough to justify the extra pounds. Fried chicken, yes. Fried dough, yes. Pretty much fried anything really. Pasta, rice, or potatoes, eh. I usually pass. However, I came across a recipe years ago, and through the years tweaked it until it […]

Infections, Dog Attacks, and Tumors: My Very Bad, Horrible, No Good Week

I’ve always thought of myself as someone who was healthy, fit, and active. I’ve never had any major health problems and thought that my life style played a big part in that. I eat well (for the most part), I drink obscene amounts of water every day, and I work out on average 4 times […]

For The Love of My Overseas WAGS

I often talk about the good and bad of overseas life, with the good far outweighing the bad. While some things hold true regardless of the team or country, I’ve found that my experiences are greatly affected by the city or town I’m in, and by whether I have a friend to help me pass […]

When Bad Things Happen in Foreign Places

I always try to believe that people are inherently good, and even if they aren’t I still try to find the good in them. Throughout my travels I have met so many great people, some who have become friends, and others who have helped me or shown kindness in some way. As much as I […]

Can You Survive A Month Without WiFi? I Can’t.

*Updated to add new info* I can’t help but feel a little embarrassed as I sit with my kids on a park bench across the street from our favorite pizza place, essentially stealing their WiFi. The kids may not look so bad with their tablets and leappads, but I’m perched with my laptop on my […]
