If my husband and I would have waited for the right time to buy a house, we would have probably been waiting quite a while. To be honest, things weren’t as bad off as they are now, when we bought a house. The first time home buyer’s tax credit was available and it seems that the market wasn’t quite in the shape it is in now.. We didn’t know that at the time though.

If you are going to do a lot of online shopping this season, it’s best to shop without charging, if you can help it.

I can’t begin to tell you how super excited I am to introduce you to the Onya Baby Carrier! I was introduced to their ingenious carrier while attending the San Francisco Birth and Baby Fair earlier in the month.

Have you heard of the new trend TCOYF (take charge of your fertility)? No? Let me tell you about it. It’s a total hippie thing. If you’re not a hippie, this probably isn’t for you. I didn’t know I was actually a hippie until I had my daughter. I’m almost positive that at the same time as I gracefully (ha!) and gently (HAHAHA!) welcomed my daughter into the world, my inner hippie was also born into existence. My inner hippie now tells me that I can do things myself and be all natural like.
