Being a mother means something different for every mom. For me, it is my saving grace. Having kids helped me realize how great I am. I don’t mean this in a vain sense. I mean it from a perspective of having lost myself in a dead relationship, then reviving myself after kids. When Mo was […]
Getting Mo to school is like my daily mommy boot camp. It’s almost mandatory to go into General Nora role to complete all the morning tasks. Get up early, make breakfast, pack his lunch, wake Mo, wake B, get B ready, get myself ready, get out the door. FAST. Brave 40 minutes of LA traffic […]
I love March! It’s the time for Spring, my birthday, and MARCH MADNESS!!!! March Madness is super fun, even if you’re not a college basketball fan. The key is to do a bracket to help make the 64 games more exciting. This year, I am the Commissioner of a bracket pool. A small group of […]
New Year’s Eve is here. This doesn’t mean much to me. I’m usually home with the boys and asleep shortly after the East Coast New Year’s Eve celebration. Yes, lame, I know. But I’m not a partier or clubber. I hate dressing up. I don’t drink. Oh, and it’s cold outside. Buuut, for those of […]

Since Magnolia does featured flavors every month, I try and get by to tantalize my taste buds. For the holiday season, they are featuring mini-cupcake Christmas Ornament boxes and […]
When I was little, I HATED Thanksgiving (sorry Pilgrims). I would have much rather celebrated Flag Day. Or Ground Hog Day. Anything but Thanksgiving. I was such a rebellious spirited child. The last thing I wanted was to be forced to sit at a dinner table with grownups. Fast forward many years… I’ve been on […]
Last year I had so much fun watching Mariah Carey on HSN. It was her 1st time showing her jewelry and clothing line. She was hilarious. The best part was when she tweeted me ( I have arrived!) during a show commercial break. @MariahCareyMariah Carey @AHotMama Thank youuu! I love the butterfly rings too!! LYM : […]
Happy Veteran’s Day to everyone serving in the military past and present.
Thank you for your sacrifice and bravery.
A week before Halloween, ABC late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel made a simple request: “I asked parents to tell their kids they ate all their Halloween candy.” Parents were then asked to videotape the response of their kids and post to youtube. There were tons of responses, but they all had one common […]
