February 14th may be for romance (unless you've been married forever and have small children), but February 13th is for girl talk and giggles. Yes, there is an unofficial date for Galentine's Day. Do you celebrate with your best...
Hey Lizzo, I see you girl. Thanks for being the bold, brave, outgoing person that you are. You show us confidence, self-love, empowerment and girl power. You are a role model to some, and honestly, some don’t really like what...
Dear Hot Mom, I tried to be like you, but getting dressed and wearing makeup isn’t my thing most days. In fact, today, when I picked up my kids in carpool line, I threw on a sweatshirt so I could...

Your friend just had a baby, and you're going visit her and meet her newest family member. Do you bring something? Not bring something? A gift for her or the baby? These are all things I ask myself before...
My college roommate, Christy, recently flew in from New York to spend a few days with us here in New Orleans. We have always bonded over our love of good food, traveling, and our enthusiasm for the Georgia Bulldogs....
I was late to the Marie Kondo movement on Netflix. You are more likely to find me watching Evil Genius, The Staircase, or some other crime thriller than a show about home makeovers. But the more and more I...
Have you ever had one of those deja vu moments? I had one a couple of months ago. There I was, nonchalantly avoiding a task and perusing my Facebook feed. I mean, we've all done it a time or two,...
The Big Kid Sleepover My son recently turned 11. Birthday parties aren't as cool as they used to be, though video games are very "in." Sleepovers are the best thing ever, but how many boys can I have sleep at...
