Do I Even Have a Why?

Recently, a wise and beautiful woman asked a question:

What is your WHY? Why do you do what you do?

I think this is a very powerful question that each and every one of us should ask ourselves on occasion as it actually makes you think about things. I should know, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about this question since she asked it. So, I felt compelled to actually post my answer.

What do I do? What is my WHY? Continue reading “Do I Even Have a Why?”

MMMMM….It feels soooo GOOD!

Yes…I did mean for that to come across rather raunchy…sorry!

I know I was being completely silly and WRONG a few minutes ago. During a conversation with one of my favorite bloggers, Dawn from Delectably Dawn, I kind of sort of maybe used a (what I thought was) new word!!

Ready for some back story?!?Here is our little conversation from earlier…  Continue reading “MMMMM….It feels soooo GOOD!”

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Ema


Today’s cooking with Ema is going to be loads of fun!

We made cookies! Chocolate chip ones too! I was super proud of how they turned out and will be included the recipe on our new page as soon as I get it up and running!

So here goes! How to make chocolate chip cookies with Ema (through pictures of course!):


Step 1: Get your ingredients (mommy did that for me) & mix them all together! This is the fun & messy part!


Step 2: Melt the butter so it’s easy for me to mix together. (Most recipes say to just soften it…but we always melt it all the way so little people can mix it up too!)


Step 3: Mix your butter into the bowl of flour and stuff. It takes a while to get it all mixed up..just keep tasting it throughout to make sure all sections taste the same! You don’t want to mess up and end up having a spot that doesn’t taste as good!


Step 4: Make mommy help when your arm gets tired and you don’t wan to stir anymore! (That stuff is thick and tough! I promise mommy’s can do it much faster!)

Step 5: use a spoon to put messy yummy balls on the pan (grease it first)! Be sure to put more onto the spoon than you need to, this way you have an excuse to eat it! (See…even mommy ate some!)


Step 6: Stop and let mommy take pictures of the cookie dough…weird step but hey that’s what we did! This stuff tastes even yummier than it looks! (I think it’s the brown sugar that makes it extra yummy!)


Step 7: Let mommy put them into the oh so hot oven and wait not so patiently as they bake!

Step 8: Wait AGAIN as mommy takes more pictures….she seriously doesn’t understand how serious it is to wait 10 minutes on cookies to bake! They smell super yummy and I want one NOW!

Do you cook with your little ones? If so, what is your favorite thing to cook together?

I’m a Pinterest WHORE!


According to wikipedia , “Pinterest is a pinboard-style photo-sharing website that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections. Users can browse other pinboards for images, “re-pin” images to their own pinboards, or “like” photos.”

Pinterest was created by a group of three people, Ben Silbermann, Paul Sciarra, and Evan Sharp. I have, until this point, considered them my “pimps” or “drug dealers”. I suppose Cold Brew Labs, who manages it, probably should be included in there somewhere! They play just as big a part as the others in my new found profession and addiction.

Please note: this post is meant AS A JOKE! If you don’t have a sense of humor…DO NOT continue reading!

If you are reading this then you clearly have a love of Pinterest! Be sure to check out and join the Pinterest blog hop! Continue reading “I’m a Pinterest WHORE!”
