Hello my readers! How is that for a fast and forced hiatus? No worries, your trusty Modern Mom is peeking her head out of the hole and cast a shadow upon a 3.8 GPA. I hope your holidays are treating you well! Let’s do a quick catch-up!
I have just participated in my very first Reddit Secret Santa gift exchange. It was quite fun to follow, but not as fun to participate in my case. I was super excited to chose gifts for my giftee only to have them not acknowledge receipt (after nearly 2 weeks now!) and that just kind of put a damper on the whole experience. If you have ever participated in this exchange then you will understand my disappointment. However, browsing through the gallery at all of the other posted exchanges has been an awesome downtime hobby. I will probably do it again next year and just keep my fingers crossed for more enthusiastic matches. Maybe we can orchestrate a blogger secret santa exchange…hmm.
I have also recently signed up with Tastefully Simple. I don’t have a website yet, but I do have an e-catalog that I can send along to anyone interested! Tastefully Simple features easy-to-prepare foods and gifts, which require two items or less to prepare. Oh, lots of yum. I won’t dwell though.
Finals just concluded on December 15th so I guess there’s not a lot to add to what’s going on in my life now (unless you want to go over the joys of trying to quarantine an 11-year-old in her room for fear of everyone in the house catching the flu). Drop me a comment and let me know what you’re up to!
Well, that took longer than expected, but I’m back now. Isn’t that what really matters? Fixed computer in hand and primed to share- aside from my established topics, be ready to hear all about the adventures of going back to college as a mrrmam-year-old SAHM. It has been quite the adventure so far and classes don’t even start until next week. Ay yi yi.
I live in a smallish suburb in the midwest. Several months ago the only Indian restaurant near us closed, and with them they took my favorite dish, Murgh Makhani (also known as chicken makhani or butter chicken). This week we … Continue reading →

Another summer is winding down way too fast. While I’m shopping all of the back-to-school sales and helping the littles pick out their perfect first day ensembles, I have a couple of things nagging in the back of my brain. … Continue reading →

While Husby was off beachin’ it in his own mind, I was assembling food for the masses. Okay, for four. Well, technically for two. But it was intended for four. Kids and their aversion to red pepper flakes… Please enjoy … Continue reading →

We got our July Loot Crate today. Husby would say his Loot Crate, but I enjoy the unboxing just as much and have my eye on every t-shirt he’s received so far. Loot Crate is a monthly gear and swag … Continue reading →
DAILY PROMPT From the Top Today, write about any topic you feel like — but you must reuse your opening line (at least) two more times in the course of your post. I apologize. To anyone in the midwest who … Continue reading →
Sherlock Holmes had his pipe. Dorothy had her red shoes. Batman had his Batmobile. If we asked your friends what object they most immediately associate with you, what would they answer?
I am not entirely positive that today’s Daily Prompt inspires me to write much of interest, but I am always happy to share my love of the aviators. These particular ones are from Betsey Johnson, but I have many pair.
Maybe you have a signature object you can go on and on about. Tell me about it in the comments!
I started my Friday favorites last week and had my mind set to make it a regular feature on my blog. This week, I happened upon a link-up for my theme. So, I’m linking up with Mom’s Got Mail for … Continue reading →
