As he wakes up from a sound sleep, she’s sitting there, looking at him, totally enamored. She calls him Calvin. 2 points if you remember why… He had on Calvin Klein underwear! And who can forget their fabulous billboards…

Are you a busy person? Have you heard of momAgenda? This is my FAVORITE source for my daily planner. I’ve been an addict since 2006 and live out of this book! I first heard about the momAgenda when I was buying my son’s baptism outfit at Neiman’s, and the saleslady had her momAgenda out on her desk. I saw it and was instantly in love.

The past 3 years I’ve rarely been an arm’s reach away from my momAgenda Desktop. Their new 2009-2010 planners begin with August 2009, which is right around the corner. This year I may give the myAgenda a whirl!

momAgenda’s tagline is “…Get Organized With Style!” With this promo code for 15% off your next purchase at, you’ll be on your way to stylish organization. Now to find shoes to match…

I’m a big fan of baby-wearing. It sounds funny at first, but slings have made my life SO much easier since #2 arrived. Baby stays nice and close to me, one hand for the diaper bag and the other to hold my son’s hand. Voila!

I’ve tried a couple of brands, and Hotslings are my favorite by far. Here’s a link to enter to win one! (They make slings for dads too!)
