Cancer Submissions Postponed

Men and Cooking (or the Lack Thereof)

My husband was reading a comment made by a college friend’s wife on Facebook last night.  She was talking about how she is the primary cook and her husband barbecues.  When she went out of town for a week, she loaded him up with tons of sausages and hot dogs to barbecue. Before I met […]

Breastfeeding Mom Fired!

I am so thankful to be blessed to have the opportunity to be a stay-at-home mom to my 3 boys. However, there are some moms out there that either have to work or choose to work. Breastfeeding is healthy for the baby, as well as the mother. A mother who is breastfeeding should be nursing […]

TruTV is Hilarious!

I love watching television shows and short clips on the Internet. I was recently introduced to truTV. OH MY GOSH! There are some clips that had me laughing out loud, gasping “Oh No!,” or saying to myself, “Oh man, what an idiot!” That is the goal of truTV – to provide clips that get a […]

Find Cheap Textbooks!

I remember attending college and dreading having to fork out the big bucks for brand new textbooks. I remember searching through used textbooks so that I could get the best deal, spending half the amount of the price of the new book many times. Today, more and more people are finding and purchasing cheap textbooks […]

The Mommy-Files is Famous!

So, a reader forwarded me to a link on an article about “Mom Bloggers.” It was pretty interesting. It talked about how the majority of blogs either read, written, or maintained are done by moms. What can I say? We moms (and women who aren’t moms – oh – and dads) love to talk about […]

Digital Cameras Galore!

I love taking pictures of my family! I also love taking pictures of scenery, wildlife, and just good old fashion fun times! There are so many different brands and models of cameras out there that it is often difficult to choose the right one and get a good price on it. I was recently introduced […]

The Mommy-Files Will Be Under Construction

After talking to other bloggers, I’ve decided to make the switch from Blogger to WordPress. I am a little nervous because I am new to WordPress, but am excited about the new look and changes to come. The layout of my blog will be different and will have the ability to create other pages, such […]
