My parents don’t understand. When we visit them, I am on my phone or laptop, my husband is on his iPad, and the kids are on the iPod.
They see these devices as divisive.
What they don’t see is what I see:
This is the year that you’re going to get in better shape! One way to stay motivated is by wearing a Fitbit to track your steps, stairs and sleep. This little gadget can be worn on your waistband or bra and is compatible with the myfitnesspal, Lose It! and other apps. You’ll find yourself looking for stairs to climb and parking further and further away from your favorite places just to add more steps.

I know you are busy right now so I will make this brief. Face it, you are going to have unexpected company soon and will most likely have to throw something together for a potluck/finger food/drop-in event. Don’t worry because I’ve got you covered. All you really need are ten ingredients waiting in your pantry or refrigerator that will make four instant appetizers.
Steve and I were headed to my parents’ lake house in Scott, AR, on Christmas day 2007. The lake may seem like an odd choice for holiday festivities, but it truly is gorgeous.

What’s the “hot” new toy this year? What is the “Tickle Me Elmo” of 2012? Who knows? That sort of toy desire or Elmo-envy has fallen off sharply every year. In fact, this year most of the people that you ask couldn’t tell you. Heck, I don’t know, and we have a three year old. I do know what she wants, and if you watch any children’s programming you know that the marketers of Pop the Pig, Dream Lights and Stompeez have done their homework on how to market to kids.
