Embarrassing Working Mom Moments: (A Trip to the Liquor Store)

As a working mom I try to maximize all of my time and maximize my dollars.  There always seems to be something to do and not enough time to do it.  For that reason, I try to fit errands into my day so that they don’t pile up. With Labor Day coming up I am planning to have enough food, snacks, and spirits on hand to entertain anybody who stops by.  I recently found two $5.00 off coupons for “Skinny Girl Sangria” in my purse that expire on August 31 st so I made a mental note to pick some up.  I got out of a meeting a little early so I decided to stop by the Wine and Spirits store that’s across the street from my office on the way back from the meeting.  I thought I could get what I needed, save money and save on having to run to the store at a less opportune time.   

A Working Mom Celebrating Inauguration 2013 With Her Fellow Americans

There's an old movie called " Mr. Smith Goes to Washington ". I've never seen it, but I've heard that it’s about a small town guy who's elected to Congress . Well, I haven't been elected to Congress, but I did have the opportunity to attend President Obama's Second Inauguration and The Inaugural Ball . Like Mr. Smith, this small town girl went to Washington and she had a ball!
