Less Cancer, More Birthdays!

Today is MY birthday (never mind, which one!) and, in celebration of the 17th Anniversary of my 29th birthday (there, I said it!) I have partnered with the American Cancer Society's Choose Campaign (unpaid) by hosting a special giveaway on my shopping blog (ditto) to help shine the spotlight on a sobering statistic: One in three women will get cancer in her lifetime. Considering my twin brother, Steve (yes, his REAL name) has been battling cancer for a few years, now (AND WINNING!) I am committed to finding and sharing ways in which women can lead a healthier lifestyle. Especially,... Read more →

Wordless Wendesday: Welcome to Cape May Light House

I love how Hope is using one of her flip flops as the steering wheel - here are some more photos from our weekend away at Cape May - yes, this IS New Jersey. Check out the Official Wordless Wednesday HQ Tag, you're it: Wordless Wednesday © 2010 This Full House - All Rights Reserved. Read more →

Lost and Found

To think, this mommy/daughter mugging for the camera moment was nearly lost, forever! Last week, I wrote about how we hit the road and drove to Cape May for the weekend (yes, even the Doofus-Dawg seemed excited about his first road trip) and I did promise you pictures, to prove that Jersey is NOT all what you see outside your window, flying over Newark Airport (seriously, dude, we ARE called the garden state) but, my middle girl hid her camera from me, because I broke mine and, you know, she's smart like that. "You can't use my camera." Gosh, but... Read more →

Change is Good, Failing is Better

I took this picture of Hope and Glen (my two youngest) in 2005 -- the year my parents moved out of the house I grew up in -- and, already, my son was very protective of his baby sister. "I don't want her to fall in da wah-der!" Didn't matter that my father's koi pond was only about ankle-deep; in true Thompson fashion, my son is a born worrier (he gets that from his father) and, well, his concern for the physical and emotional well-being of everyone around him was sort of, you know, cute. Last night, however, turned chronic.... Read more →

Hit the Road

My husband, Garth [not his real name] and I dog sat a few months ago and, as a thank you, our youngest daughter's Godparents invited us to spend a weekend at their summer home in Cape May, NJ. "What do you mean, they won't be there?" It's a busy time of year -- especially, for folks who make a living out of digging in the dirt -- so, this trip, it would be just the six of us....and my sister-in-law."What about Doofus-Dawg?" Oh, yeah...him, too...much to the hor-ruh of Garth [not his real name] poor guy. "It's a BIG house!"... Read more →

The Day I Quit Being the Good Wife

One of the ladies at the gym watches The Good Wife and keeps insisting that I would probably love it, too. "I dunno." You see, besides feeling as if I couldn't possibly relate to anything using the words "good" and "wife" in the same sentence ("big" and "dork," probably) I also have commitment issues with television. "What time is it on?" By the time I get home from work, eat and get the kids settled for the night (i.e. get them to at least admit that, you know, it IS bedtime) it's too late. "Did you watch, last night?" [slaps... Read more →

Wordless Wednesday
Ocean's Eleven

Photograph courtesy of my 11 year-old son, who FINALLY aced his last math test and has a penchant for blue. What? It was either a $9.00 bottle of color, or a new cell phone -- yes, I am also ONE OF THOSE parents!
