October menu plan: dinners for your family this Fall

October menu plan: dinners for your family this Fall

We’re finally dressing in jeans and long sleeves and the grill is (practically) packed up for winter. This weekend, my family ran over to Wick’s Ski & Sport for their annual consignment sale and Little is happily wearing her new-to-her ski jacket in 60 degree weather. We’ll see how long that lasts (the weather and the voluntary wearing of a coat.) This week for dinner, we’re truly stepping into…

Back to work with Lenovo’s ThinkPad Casual Tote #LenovoIN

Back to work with Lenovo’s ThinkPad Casual Tote #LenovoIN

Whether I’m traveling for work or running to Starbucks with an extra half hour to get a little work done, I like to make sure I’m traveling with everything I’ll need on the go, and having an organized bag with me makes it all the easier. As a Lenovo Insider, I was recently sent their new ThinkPad Casual Tote, a bag that’s made to not just carry my laptop, but carry –seriously– everything else I…

Teach kids to persuade

Teach kids to persuade

One of our favorite family games is Snake Oil. We’ve been playing it for about a year, creating new product ideas, then persuading others that our product will work and will be necessary in the real world. In playing, I learned something about my kids –they have a lot more persuasive power than I thought. Given the time and circumstance, they wowed us with their creative story telling methods to…

Is today the day to start over?

Is today the day to start over?

I went to college in the 90s. The early 90s. It was so long ago, that we still had wired phones in our rooms, and having your own computer was fairly unique. There were no laptops in classrooms. And no YouTube videos to remind us how to do things. Office hours required, sometimes, lining up outside a professor’s door hoping he’d show up, not turning on Skype and asking a question. We didn’t start…

October meal planning: What we’re cooking this month

October meal planning: What we’re cooking this month

So often, people ask me how I keep the meal-planning rhythm. It’s a habit, I promise. And like all habits-in-the-making, it takes time to make it one for you. If you’re just starting out, you will need to push yourself to set aside the time each week to plan your meals. Remember, planning starts out at about 2-3 hours a week, but as this becomes your routine, meal planning takes only about an…

Worst Day Ever

Since begin introduced to it as a second grade teacher, I’ve loved Judith Voirst’s Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day. A simple story, there were so many writing and discussion prompts to expand upon the story and help children to make connections. So when Disney announced they were creating a movie based on the book, I was so excited to see the theatrical expansion of the…
