Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I hope y’all are doing well. The past few weeks I have been stepping out of my comfort zone. I am taking strides to make things happen instead of passively waiting for opportunities to fall in my lap. I recently did a phone interview with another blogger to promote my book, Acting On Her Behalf. That has led to plans for a Twitter Party in April. I’ll have more info on that in the coming weeks.
I also have been networking with other residents of St. Tammany Parish to elect a new Coroner. All eyes are on this particular political race because our former Coroner was just sentenced to 2 years in prison for federal corruption charges. I have met some phenomenal people and will be continuing my involvement in some civic organizations in Slidell.
Happier, healthier, and wiser…

Stacey chose GRASSHOPPER BROWNIES from our very own Mommy on Demand! “These look delicious! As everyone knows, I love brownies and you can never go wrong by adding mint to any kind of chocolate. These look so amazingly easy and just down right wonderful!”
Kimberly chose How to enter giveaways on goodreads from Another Clean Slate. “I am a member of GoodReads, but have only used it for tracking books read and publicizing my own book. Kate’s post opened my eyes to something I wasn’t aware of. She shows you how to enter giveaways on GoodReads to earn free books. Many of the books have not even been released yet! Who doesn’t want a free book?”
April chose Balancing: Is It All Just An Act? from Lazy Hippie Mama. “As I increase the amount of work that I put into my blog and my writing, I found this post profound in knowing what I can and can’t do on any given day. I know that I can’t do it all, but can I really balance it all?”
Jessica chose I Had Lunch with My Ex-Husband. It Made Me Happy. from Surviving and Thriving in the Second Year of Divorce. “I have an ex-husband and a few ex – boyfriends. I wish I can have that kind of a relationship with the ex-hubby for our son’s sake. So, it was nice to read a good ex-husband relationship. The ex-boyfriends have been a different story and all are good friends :-).”
Natasha also chose I Had Lunch with My Ex-Husband. It Made Me Happy. from Surviving and Thriving in the Second Year of Divorce. “It’s so great to see that Kat has a great relationship with her ex-husband. I also wish that I could have a great relationship with my ex-husband, but that is not the case. However, I do have a great relationship with two of my exes and I’m working on some kind of relationship with my son’s father for the sake of my son. Great post!
This post also received the most clicks.
Melissa chose Forever Young from Living in Mommyhood. “Mari’s post really hit home for me, as she describes her youthful grandmother and why we should try to remain young at heart no matter our age. It is such an uplifting post about recognizing all the joys in life despite the really low points and how to stay forever young no matter our age. Great reminder for all of us!”
Angel chose We Built a Greenhouse from Penny’s Vintage Home. “Her new greenhouse has me green with envy. I absolutely love how cute it is. The pink bed frame is makes it awesome!”
