Mommy & Me bellydancing.

Friday, January 7, 2011


Once upon a time there was a misfit mama who was looking for a fun & different PLAYout to do with her girl. The aforementioned Tornado of a Girl had a babysitter who was a belly dancer & she found the whole concept (& name) gigglyamusing. Many were the afternoons spent with her tee shirt [...]

What are *your* pink gloves?

Friday, December 3, 2010


Right before Thanksgiving, during the most convenient possible time of year, our dishwasher died. It suddenly & irrevocably refused to close. I couldnt fix it, the Tornado couldnt fix it, the Traveling Husband wasnt around to fix it & the plumber (who was here visiting for a different broken-stuff reason) was irrationally pissed & frustrated [...]

Monday, August 2, 2010


(there’s a video above if youre reading via google reader) One of my fondest mamahood memories is the first afternoon (we’ve now done it a few times) my daughter & I climbed upon the Operation Beautiful bandwagon. I’d decided to join in after reading about other people’s experiences on Caitlin’s blog & really didnt think [...]

Whether you are familiar with this term or not—Im pretty confident in saying we’re all familiar with the concept. Technically defined self-objectification is defined as when we choose to evaluate ourselves based on appearance because that’s how we believe others adjudicate us. (many believe that the media plays a large role in teaching us to [...]

I love myself. part 3948 (giveaway post).

Friday, January 8, 2010


This weekend I will have been married to Ren. Man for 13 years (together for 16). There are few things Im entirely certain of in my life, but one is we’d not still be together if I hadnt entered this union loving myself first. If I can impart one thing to you today it is [...]

Operation Beautiful follow up post.

Tuesday, July 21, 2009


subtitle: I havent forgotten the questions you left me in the comments. Did you tell your daughter what you were doing? Or is she too young (I don’t have kids yet)? I want to hear more about what you talked to your daughter about (during Operation Beautiful). She is the same age as my daughter. [...]

BlogHer Conference…WE GOT OUR SLOT!

Sunday, July 5, 2009


Now we need to make sure the room is jam-packed. Consider yourself commanded to be there if you’re at the conference. Unable to attend?  Feel free (wink) to tweet the session or post about it on your blog. In my opinion it’s as simple as this: If we arent willing to step up & guide [...]

Operation Beautiful.

Tuesday, June 30, 2009


Subtitle: Im a little late to this soiree—but better late than never. To know me at all is to know that my primary goal in this life is to raise my daughter to love herself & to realize that simply by being who she is that she’s ENOUGH. (Mother’s Day 2009 flashback) What I wish [...]

Perricone MD (giveaway post).

Friday, May 29, 2009


Once upon a time, back in the dark ages when MizFit was a little girl, her sister had a birthday party. Now MizFit remembers very little about this entire event except for an exchange which occurred between her mom & one of SisterFit’s friends immediately after the gifts had been unwrapped. MamaFit: I love the [...]
