Just in time for Mother's Day, "Working Mom" magazine came out with their list of the 50 Most Powerful Moms--with kids under 18. It's the usual celebrities with a lot of money to pay their nannies, maids and butlers of course...
Shout out to the great chicas at my hair salon! This past weekend, while getting my daughter's their haircuts, we had a salon poll of the coolest working mom. An overwhelming majority, including myself, voted for her!
Who's your vote?
Days away from Opening Day, and the NY Yankees are reportedly the most valuable sports franchise in the U.S. Who did they beat? Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys. With all of the old time (and injured) players on the payroll this year, do you think that the Yanks are worth 2.3 billion?
From iCarly to Victorious to Sponge-Bob, Nickelodean is a BIG deal in my house, spawning many fights to "make it louder" in my living room. My two girls love Nick, so you can imagine it's going to be like Oscar night in my house tomorrow night during the Nickelodean 2013 Kid's Choice Awards, especially since Katy and her BFF Selena and Taylor will be there!
