My Name.

I have built quite the following on facebook, here, and now in my community. Some see me as just my name. A unique name, and I always have to explain it, but assume I’m married because of the two last names. I had three at one point but that was a long time ago. I…

Sweet Potato Chili

Hello. Hola. Any other way to say hello!……Peeps! Graduation is over. Summer vacation has started. It also means, kids are home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Kids may think, “school’s out, sleep in, and crappy food! Score!”. Nope. Not in this house. Still eating healthy on break. Now this recipe is kind…

School Birthdays: Go Big or Go Home.

Hyperdiva’s Birthday in on Sunday. Her dad is taking her to disneyland for her gift from him. It’s been tight around here with graduation looming, and making sure everything is paid for. It wasn’t going to stop me. Each child always got a big presence from me their last couple years of elementary school. The…

Quit blaming everyone else. Look at home.

Three posts today, but this one had to be first. I saw a post on my personal fb what the problem with millenials are. I think we should fully discuss this concept. Yes, I’m going there today. Now, reading the age range of millennials being 1980 to 1996-2000(roughly), I call bullshit on this first. You…

Questioning my logic.

I was supposed to be writing on margaritas, and planning my first tupperware party, but getting the news I just got, I have to write on this first. As you guys know, I wear a ton of hats, of which one is girl scout troop leader. I originally signed on because Hyperdiva was in the…

Party Food Selection: What do you need to know?

Taking a break from the usual, in a sense. I wanted to touch on a subject that maybe in your future like mine. Planning a party or wedding. No, I’m not getting married anytime soon(as far as I know), but I am planning a graduation party. Future brides, reuinions, or parents planning a Quinecanera and/or…

Reflection

Its funny how life works. No handbook. You can get advice, but even with advice, their is no guarantee that it my work. With that said, it’s the small glimmers of happiness, laughter, and hope that keeps me going. I’m not going to lie, I comtemplated stopping my dreams, including this blog, media, and everything…

Being misinformed doesn’t belong here or in this day and age.

Lovely, lovely, lovely peeps. It has been sooooo long since I had a fully organized blog to post to you guys. We moved, got things going, the crew started school, and they packed away my laptop cord! Bullocks all the way around! Now that I bought a new cord, and got the crew back into…

How To Do You Without Going Into The Soup Line.

It’s Sunday, and I’m relaxing from the gig I helped with yesterday. Reading, catching up with family, and walking dead in the background. I came across an article while thinking about recipes. It was about rising prices of different things, including rent. Now of course no one wants rising prices, but there is ways to…

Tasty Tuesday: Drive Thru/Take out on a broke ass fund!

Welcome back to Tasty Tuesdays! We had a fun filled weekend here at Casa de Common Sense, and soon enough you guys will see what I’m talking about. I’m noticing as I’m working on networking and getting business things taken care of take out is becoming a choice, but not something I fully like. Not…

Friday Family Lab Part 1: Party time Frozen Style!

Now before I get into the party, I want to say everything didn’t go as planned, but Ms. Hyperdiva loved her party! When I laid down to go to sleep, I grinned, because that’s all that really mattered to me. Going into this three weeks ago, I never watched frozen, because it never really interested…

Why Mother’s Day is different for me………

Happy Mother’s Day to all mommy’s out there! No matter what stage of it you are at, your always a mommy. I always took a different approach to how today is. If you guys haven’t seen some of my post, I’m not for the glamour and glitz of the holiday. I love homemade stuff, and…
