Mami Mondays: Meredith Talks Education

Mami Mondays is back! And we are kicking things back off with Meredith who speaks on an important topic that is of interest, not just because I have a child but because I am in grad school and would like to teach some day. The High Cost of Education This summer I packed up my home, filling boxes and bags full of the possessions I would carry with me while I stacked all my other things—cookware, photographs, furniture—in a 10×10 square on the third floor of a storage unit. I moved across......

Confessions of a Truck Driver's #DeliciousMoments

Disclosure: I am a Breyers ambassador but this post was written by a fellow ice cream lover. Nothing gives me more pleasure than bringing a little happiness to those around me. Especially when I have no idea I’m doing it. Imagine my SURPRISE when, after going to an all-girl gathering at my friend Yadira’s house and innocently bringing them some Breyers ice cream, I get this awesome recipe and write up. I am happy to share this unplanned delicious moment with you. Luis Soto is husband of Editor in Chief, Yadira Ambert......

Dating Dossier: Dei's Not-So Dine and Dash

Meet Dei.Nicole. She is my line sister, my friend and my comic relief with her Facebook updates about dating. So much so that I had to create this for her: The post is long guys but, how could I cut the story down? It’s about a girl and a guy. Olive Garden and a check. About a card, a phone call and a surprise. My last relationship ended about a year and a half ago.  During the “reflection time”. You know that time we go through when you sit alone with or......

Not Defeated

As the election raged on and emotions were high I found myself deeply thankful for all of my friends. Democrats and Republicans alike. I started thinking of what I’d say if my candidate lost. And what I’d say if he won.  When the results came in. I found myself sending love notes and thoughts of thanks to those who voted differently from me. Because with all of the mud slinging going on, I found my timelines on both Twitter and Facebook virtually mud-free. I did not feel like we were divided. Rather,......

So, before you go on spreading rumors, I am NOT pregnant. Confused? Um, yes. That one I can’t deny. I haven’t done a Mami Moments in a while and this time around I decided to give the ‘hood a taste of another Mami. Granted, her bun is still baking but to me, she’s a Mami already. Meet Ms. Brittany, also known as Clumps of Mascara (how cute is that?). She is pregnant, adorable and apparently, confused. Alas, I was too old anal retentive seasoned to have this particular problem (remind me to tell......

Mami MD: Meet Dr. G

Before you ask, no she’s not the forensic pathologist. Dr. G is this fantastic and fabulous human being that I have the honor of sharing the blogosphere with!  While at BlissDom, we got to talking since the frog princess had been feverish right before my trip and I asked her a question that I wanted to share.  It wasn’t until I went through my keywords recently that I realized how many people were searching for information on febrile seizures. Dr. G (Deborah Gilboa, MD) has been empowering parents around the country to......

I met Holli after sending out a Tweet while in the legal session at BlissDom. I think it said something like: “I need a tax professional ASAP!”.  The information I was getting seemed overwhelming to handle all on my own.  Thankfully, I finally met her while we were both singing along to Biggie (no joke) on the dance floor.  Our relationship was solidified  when she told me that I should indeed have a glass of wine while I put together all of the paperwork for my taxes. I mean, really, she’s a......
