Recipe: Roasted Butternut Squash and Bacon Soup

I love Fall and everything it brings - sweaters and boots; cooler weather and leaves changing colors; pumpkins and other gourds, and all of the delicious recipes from these and other seasonal fruits and veggies! Earlier this week I posted a photo of my son helping me with the beginning prep of one of my … Continue reading Recipe: Roasted Butternut Squash and Bacon Soup

Our Favorite Children’s Books!

Little ones are incredible to watch. Especially as they reach the stage where they can actually sit and try to pay attention to books. It starts off with picture books, to single or double words on each page that include animal sounds or a description of how it’s fur feels, and on to full blown … Continue reading Our Favorite Children’s Books!

Goodbye Atlanta, Hello Detroit!

Hey y’all (Yes, I still have my southern twang, and have “y’all” and “bless your heart” in my vocabulary) !!! We’ve been in Michigan for a little over a week now, and have definitely been through the ringer with toddler adjustments, heatwaves (I thought I was getting away from 90 degrees and humidity??), and organizing … Continue reading Goodbye Atlanta, Hello Detroit!

Parenting is so much more than a love you never knew existed 

Parenting is no doubt one of the greatest things in life to experience. Having children provides your whole body with all kinds of feels you never even knew existed, or at least never knew just how deep those feelings ran. Everyone says it once they have their first child, “I never knew I could love … Continue reading Parenting is so much more than a love you never knew existed 

First impressions of the new city

So one of my last posts was the big announcement - we're leaving our home of the state of Georgia to pack our tyrant twins and head north to a suburb of Detroit. Or even possibly downtown Detroit and rent a condo for a year. Who knows. That's the million dollar question (if only the … Continue reading First impressions of the new city

Bulk buying with kids and decluttering wishes: I don’t even know where to begin

The pollen in Georgia is OUT OF CONTROL and we just can’t take it anymore. I’m in a fog no matter what kind of antihistamine I try to take, and my son has an inhaler because his allergies are so bad he’s been wheezing. This right here is one of the things I am NOT … Continue reading Bulk buying with kids and decluttering wishes: I don’t even know where to begin

I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore…

Oy vey! (said in my best Jewish voice) Why? I don’t know. It just feels fitting for my mood and what I’m about to tell you. It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted anything to all you lovelies here on One Fabulous Fiasco, and that’s because life has been just incredibly insane! We’ve had … Continue reading I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore…

Sometimes we just can’t help but to be “that mom”

I was that mom. I took both of my terrorizing little ones to the pediatrician to get my son checked out. To (hopefully) find out there was a reason for his “being an a-hole” attitude he had been expressing, and not just to find out that he was, in fact, just an a-hole. Thankfully, I … Continue reading Sometimes we just can’t help but to be “that mom”

I hated hearing it; now I wish I had known it

I hated hearing it, although I knew it. Sort of. “Enjoy it while it lasts,” “They grow up so fast.” I thought I knew how fast time would fly, and that I was prepared for it, not to mention READY for it. I thought I was going to be THANKFUL for the time to fly … Continue reading I hated hearing it; now I wish I had known it

Parenting “advice” gone wrong

Last week I was finally able to get out and have some much needed girl time with some favorite mommy friends of mine. Girls that I've been friends with since before any of us were mommies, or even married. And just like old veteran military men sharing stories from the trenches in Vietnam, us mommies … Continue reading Parenting “advice” gone wrong
