I honesty can’t believe in less than one month kids in South Florida will be starting school again. The summer is FLYING by. While the summer days are exciting, I want to make sure we… More
I’m a mom. You know what that means? It means somewhere along the way I have stopped putting myself first. It happens. I feel like it happens to anyone who starts chasing after tiny feet. We are more consumed with the health and wellness than ours. That is the definition of MOM.
But this mom is running on empty a good deal these days. That’s why I said this summer was the summer of self care. It’s something I’ve been desperately needing.
Being a parent is hard. But honestly being a kid these days isn’t a walk in in the park. There are a million different things headed their way and as a parent, that scares me to death.
I’m already one of those moms that works at the same school as one son… and in one more year, hopefully both of my boys will be there. Don’t worry though, I’m not one of those moms that hovers. I just watch them from afar.
I’ve lived in South Florida for almost 20 years.
1) I honestly can’t believe it’s been that long.
2) I honestly can’t believe I didn’t know amount this gem until just recently.
I couldn’t go into any grocery store without seeing how cheap watermelons are right now. Or should I say how affordable watermelons are right now. This size watermelon was only a few dollars. The larger watermelons would work too, but you would just need a whole bunch more material.

I headed to The Dollar Tree to see what summer goodies they had, knowing that I wanted to make some sort of 4th of July wreaths. When I saw the display of flip flops, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Continue reading “Dollar Tree 4th of July Flip Flop Wreaths”
Can you believe summer is here? The first day has come and gone and now I’m sure your kids are bored. I mean it has been a whole day. Don’t give in to screen time just yet! I promise that will come later on before school starts and you’re just tired. Continue reading “5 Ways to Keep Your Kids Busy This Summer”
It’s hot. It’s summer. And unlike Olaf… I’m not a fan. Weird that I live in South Florida right?
While it is hot, I will say most of the evenings have been beautiful and I do love spending time in the backyard with the boys. One of our major projects this year has been to redo the backyard and little by little it is becoming one of my favorite parts of the house. Continue reading “Cool Off This Summer With Frozen Paint”
No matter what city we travel to, I always want to see what activities there are for the family. We happened to be in Pittsburgh last month and the weather was beautiful for a few days we were there. When I say beautiful I mean not crazy hot like South Florida. I was able to wear SLEEVES!!! Do you know how excited that makes me?
Every year around the same time Publix (our grocery store in Florida) comes out with their Key Lime Pie commercials. I was never really a fan of Key Lime Pie simply because I never had it around as a kid. I think it just didn’t exist in my world until I moved to South Florida.
Anytime I hear “Farmhouse” I get nervous I’m about to spend too much money on something that looks old. Most of the time it’s a reproduction of something I’m fairly certain my grandparents had.
