The Chatty Momma What to Expect - Baby Announcement

I don't even know where to begin. I spent the first few months of 2015 making a 3 year plan.

I thought it was so adorable that my child was so selfless. She wanted to share her underwear. How cute! Then I ... [ Read More ]

As a mom and Girl Scout troop leader, encouraging being outdoors is one of the most important things I do. Seeing my kids connect with nature is so rewarding to me. Today we are surrounded by so much technology and we rely on it for nearly everything. It's easy to forget the list of basic necessities in life doesn't include smartphones or tablets. What sustained us before we ever had access to electronics was nature! When I was a kid, we gazed at the moon, we basked in the sun, we ... [ Read More ]

From the time I was a child my life has been planning one party after another (even if I I had them or not). My parents were never impressed though, because their only concern and question was, "Where are you getting the money for all THAT?" (Can you imagine? I had big dreams) Now that I'm of age to throw parties on my own, the only person I stress out is my husband (sorry, Honey). Of ... [ Read More ]
