Crushed Dreams bring True Accomplishment for me.

I never wanted to be a mother. I wanted to be successful. I never thought I needed anyone. I wanted to have freedom. I never wanted to have any lingering responsibilities. I wanted to travel and see the world. I never wanted to be a teacher. I wanted to learn from life experiences. I never saw my true greatness. I wanted to be perfect. I never wanted to struggle financially. I wanted to have abundance. And then I was chosen by this universe to be a mother at an age... Read The Rest →

Paulaisms Chicken Tacos

These chicken tacos are just delicious. I usually serve both chicken and potato tacos (recipe to come) to satisfy the vegetarian guests as well. The potato added to the chicken is a moist, comforting flavor that is undeniably yummy. You have to try them and you will be hooked.  We do Taco Tuesday at our home once a month and every time we have more friends that come to try my tacos.  My mom gave me the initial recipe, but I had to “juj” it up of course. If I... Read The Rest →

Got A Random Dry Spot?

My son has sensitive skin…unfortunately he took after his mommy on that one.  So I have been prepared with all natural jojoba oil on hand at all times.  I noticed last week that he kept tugging at his left ear.  Come to find out he had a dry spot behind his ear.  It was already scaly and irritated…PANIC! I quickly grabbed the jojoba oil and applied a pea size amount lightly giving my toddler an ear rub.  He loved it! I reapplied for two days and saw improvement but not... Read The Rest →

Get Your Fiber

I was instructed I needed to up my fiber…so I went to a couple grocery stores to see what my options were.  My mom swears by Kashi products.  9 grams of fiber and 10 grams of protein… I thought WTH…so many tantilizing options cereals too! I am a sucker for cinnamon and have learned that when choosing a healthy snack, usually if it is flavored with cinnamon the product is always yummy.  I have to say I was totally surprised with the taste of Kashi Go Lean Cereal.  I was...

I Wear A Patch

I have been an active dependant of aromatherapy for a very long time.  I remember being sick as a kid and my mommy using eucalyptus oil rubs on my chest to relieve the discomforts of the common cold.  Now I wear patches.  It is so easy to gain all the healing benefits of aromatherapy essential oils with Natural Patches of Vermont.  They come in individual packs or in packs of 10.  They are easy to place onto the skin and easy to remove as well  Lasting up to 24 hrs,...

Surrendered Thoughts Of A Teen

I was working in my office today and my teenager came in.  I always know when she wants to talk about something important to me because she just sits in front of me and quietly stares at me until I look up and address her.  (Whatever happened to the word excuse me??) Anyhow, I was a little baffled today because I could already see the tears welling in her eyes.  She said, “Mommy I need to tell you something.”  I said “okay baby girl….I am listening.” She proceeded to say...

Ass, Thighs, Hips and Tummy

Okay it is 2013.  There are new goals made. A fresh start.  We all set goals about our bodies and what we would like to improve.  I am focused since my last pregnancy to have “yoga” arms.  So why not get some new workout gear to match my revised state of mind. I suggest you do the same. Being a Haute Mommy means I recognize when my sports bra and yoga pants need an upgrade. Nothing like the Adidas by Stella McCartney sport bra to keep the twins in place.... Read The Rest →

Laundryisms

 Laundry day in my house is every other day.  Things are a little crazy in my world lately because my washing machine and dryer are currently not available…a water pipe burst in our wall behind the laundry area.  So what else can I do but go to the laundrymat??  Of course I have to bring my toddler with me to entertain me while we wait for the clothes to finish washing. He is totally amused by the entire idea of carts to wheel around  open aisles…fun times I tell ya, SUPER... Read The Rest →

5 Words a Haute Mommy Should Say More of in 2013

I want to make sure to bring 2013 in with some words that will hopefully resinate with you. When you find yourself in a challenging situation or just overwhelmed by all that falls on your lap, do the following. Take a deep breath and repeat these words out loud three times. ASPIRE.  1. To long, aim, or seek ambitiously; be eagerly desirous,especially for something great or of high value (usually followed by to, after,  or an infinitive): to aspire after literary immortality; 2. Archaic. to rise up; soar; mount; tower. I share this word first to make sure all of you recognize the importance of using an “I” in front of it when saying it outloud. REPLENISH. 1. To make full or complete again, as by supplying what is lacking,used up, etc. 2. To supply with fresh fuel. 3.... Read The Rest →

Get Sexy With Tracy Anderson

I was prego. Watching Bravo. I will NOT confess what show….bad enough I was watching Bravo. It was the middle of the night and I was having pregosomnia.  As the show ended and the infomercials started to roll I heard her name. TRACY ANDERSON. Suddenly I was extatic about my pregosomnia. By now I am sure most of you mommies have heard of this fellow mommy whom is also trainer guru to the stars.  Tracy is the reason why Madonna and Gwenyth do not have flabby arms or muffin top....
