The Best Of Motherhood For Dummies

Ever since I started blogging I have had good posts and bad posts. You know what I mean.... posts where writting it is as easy as eating a double stuffed Oreo in 2 seconds or where you are racking your brain wondering if blogging is really that great. Well, I have felt lately that I have been in a blogging funk... soooooo, to get me out of it I am posting 13 of my favorite posts. I tried to spread them out from lists, crafts, recipes, and just some funny stuff, but hopefully you will enjoy these as much as I enjoyed writting them.

Who doesn't love saving some money on the energy bill, plus doing a little part to help keep things green.

As tasty as they are cute. These have been a new family favorite

Yea, you will just have to check this one out to understand!!!! :)

This is a wonderfully tasty little dish. One of my favorites and for sure, the hubby's fave too!

I really enjoyed looking up all of the stuff I have done while living in this wonderful state and hopefully conviced some of you to head on up here!

Here is a cheap FAB way to look like a million bucks with only spending a few! Go ahead ladies, tempt yourself.... LOOK :)

Always a fun tool, plus I need all the help I can get to make my cookies look good :)

Help make your life a little easier with these great kitchen helpers.

Why bother forking out the big bucks for a baby book when you can make your own.

Always nice to have a date evening even when you don't have the cash. Also it is always fun to get creative and brake outside of the dinner & a movie mold.

Treat your self, you deserve it. Check out a list of great ways to help your self out. TREAT YOUR SELF MOMMY! (I may be yelling this at myself as much as all of you out there)

Here are some great ways to use those old cans.

I was so glad that so many of you had been looking for this recipe. I had no idea how many grandmas out there use to make this.

Hope you enjoy the trip down Motherhood For Dummies's memory lane :)


  1. It's late Wednesday night here, or early Thursday morning, haha. I just quickly read the titles of your memories and find so many of them interesting. I will be back tomorrow after I have "a wee nap", haha. Well done. I have been having a blog block lately too, well, it involved the entire computer actually, totally not into the computer at all. That seems to have passed and I'm back at it.

    Happy T13. My 21st is up.

  2. LOVEIT! Thanks for sharing...and resharing...I so enjoy yoru posts! Thanks!

    Happy T13.

  12. I am so slumped today when it comes to blogging! These are great. Your blog is always a fun read.

  13. What a good idea. I have felt this same way about MY blog for about the last month or so. I may have to steal this idea. :)

  14. Oh, the whole 13 reasons your husband could be gay was hysterical, as well as his singing, hehe.

  15. Thought the "other side of your husband was hilarious. What a great guy!!!
    Also, what a lot to do in Alaska! I think I'd love any of them, except the tram ride. I hate heights.

  16. I remember quite a few of these! You have such fabulous ideas! Really, you should be putting together a book . . . maybe you are :)

  17. Love this. My all time favorite is "Why my Husband could be gay". I think that's when I started visiting your blog daily. I plan on coming back to read some of the "best" that I've missed.

  18. Thanks for the great links!
    There are some really great posts in there.
    I especially remember loving the
    Reasons my husband could be gay post.
    Oh, and the Cheap Date ideas.
    good times!

  19. What a great idea for a TT!!!

    I have to tell you that I'm so glad you told us all about the Bagelfuls. I eat one every single morning! I think I'm obsessed! ;)
    So, just by default that might be one of my fav posts of yours. But I have many. :)

  20. What a great idea to repost! I loved it since I missed most of these! I can't wait to try the cupcakes and put my cans to use.

    And, byw, I think our husbands would really get along! ;)
