Good morning! Well, this has been a tough week… Candy’s in the middle of a big move (and you’d alternate between crying your eyes out and laughing your head off to hear what she’s been going through with THAT one!), and Pat’s been tied up trying to resolve some technical, um, “challenges” we’ve been experiencing […]
I love that “saving money” no longer has the negative connotation that it did when I was growing up in the 80′s. Back then, it wasn’t considered cool to shop at thrift stores or to repurpose furniture. We could not have imagined that drinking from recycled Mason jars while sitting in mismatched chairs at a […]
Fall is my favorite time of year. I love pretty much everything about it…boots, bonfires, no more gnats (can I get an “amen” from my southern friends?), putting out my fall decorations, the whole nine yards! And desserts are my favorite kind of food. So, yeah…I’m super excited to share this recipe round-up with you!
Worried parents see their child behaving in ways that are disturbing. It’s clear that he’s smart, so why does it take him 30 minutes to complete a simple math problem? Why is she lost in her own thoughts so much of the time and doesn’t hear anything you say? He talks too loudly, complains too […]
Recently I discovered that the South was well-represented in a contest co-run by USA Today and 10Best.com. Nominees were chosen by a panel of experts and then voted on by the public (I, however, must have missed that memo…).
It’s been busy, busy, busy here at Mom’s Morning Coffee since last we met! I’m definitely ready for our virtual coffee date. After a crazy week of packing for a move that’s hit obstacle after obstacle, I’m looking forward to reading some encouraging posts, checking out some new recipes and crafts, seeing some familiar faces, […]
Do you make bucket lists? Today is the first day of fall, and what better opportunity to start putting together your own fall bucket list?! Some of these ideas are easy-to-do, but bucket lists often have bigger-picture types of activities, too. It’s fun when you can come up with a mixture of both
It’s been a long day. You stop by the grocery store on the way home from work and buy a few items that you need. Grabbing all the plastic bags of groceries that you can, you walk in and place them on the counter. After quick hugs with the children and hubby, you turn to […]
When I was in middle school, my grandmother gave me a pair of her gold stud earrings for Christmas. They’re very plain and simple. To be honest, I didn’t appreciate them at the time. I was too interested in getting the latest Spice Girls CD. But as I’ve gotten older, I wear these classic earrings […]
When we first began working on the series “Women Who Make a Difference,” we started by interviewing women in the community we came across during our business dealings with Mom’s Morning Coffee. These were women who worked in both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations that had a real impact on the lives of those around them. […]
