Back to Work?

I strongly dislike the saying "going back to work" after a baby.  Do people seriously think that raising a child is not a 24 hour job?  Unfortunately, my husband and I are currently faced with the decision of whether I should seek a full time out-of-home job (darn you student loans!).  Downsizing is a possibility, but wouldn't happen until late this year. 

Here's a related article that speaks about the high costs of child care and whether moms entering the work force after having children is really worth it.  This is something that I've been thinking about a lot recently.  Who knew working would be so expensive!

A Perfect Wedding Ring

I am in awe of these wedding bands.  They actually change over time as the silver rubs off and the gold underneath shows.  Not only is it a wonderful reminder about how love and the marriage relationship changes over time, but how marriage actually gets more valuable as time goes on.  Wish I had seen this a few years ago!

Happy Weekend

Wow, I cant believe it's April. And I can't believe it's more than half way over. Where have I been? Here are a few Pics from my neck of the woods recently.

Chocolate Supply

I'm so glad that its healthy to eat chocolate everyday.  I prefer dark, which is better for you than milk chocolate.  This TCHO 30 day supply of chocolate would make a great present for your mama on Mother's Day this year.  They come in 30, 60, or 90 day increments and provide just the right amount of cocoa to add some relaxation into your life.

Are you courageous with your clothes?  I try to lie low with my outfits and therefore I am almost always wearing a solid-colored shirt or dress.  Would you ever wear not one, but two(!) patterns?  Do you feel like all eyes are on you?
