Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer – The Musical

As my boys are getting older, I love finding new experiences to expose them too. It’s probably one of my favorite things. To see the excitement and wonder in their eyes at even the smallest things.

Up until now, I have been hesitant to take them to anything “stage” related. I didn’t think they were ready. Maybe I wasn’t ready to take them. How long can they sit quietly? What if they can’t see what’s happening? How many bathroom trips will we need to take? So many questions. Continue reading “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer – The Musical”

Peppermint Holiday Hand Scrub

It’s been a while since I’ve made any “homemade” holiday gifts. I used to do it much more than I do now. I feel like once Halloween hits the rest of the year end months rush by. I have to schedule days where I actually don’t do anything but work on my to-do list.

Today was a day like that. I came up with a list of three projects I wanted to tackle. This hand scrub being one of them. I had all of the supplies in my cabinet already, besides the glycerin so it kills two birds with one stone. Continue reading “Peppermint Holiday Hand Scrub”

Stand Out Holiday Cards

 

See my WPTV Holiday Card Segment here…

Halloween is over, and poor Thanksgiving. It gets no love these days. It’s almost like the stores and retailers have forgotten all about that one. I always used Thanksgiving as a holiday card finish line. I know that if I don’t have my holiday cards done and sent out by Thanksgiving, there is a 98% chance they won’t get done.

Candy Cookies – Make These Tonight

With as much as I am a sugar addict… I know when there is too much in my house. I also know I have to get it out as quickly as possible.

This candy has become a problem.

The kids ask for it every day, I eat it every day… and somehow it hasn’t made a dent in it. I’m swimming in sugary candy goodness. It’s a love-hate relationship. Continue reading “Candy Cookies – Make These Tonight”

How We Halloween

I’ll be completely transparent with you. I start planning for Halloween as soon as 4th of July passes. I know for some that is way too early to start thinking about the end of October, but for me it can’t come soon enough.

I’m totally in love with all things fall. It’s absolutely my favorite time of year. The tricky thing is I live in South Florida. It is still pretty warm considering the year is coming to an end. On good days we drop out of the 90’s. Continue reading “How We Halloween”

My Baby Shower “Go-To”

As a new mom, the world is scary. Honestly, the world is still scary as a not so new mom.

When I found out I was pregnant, I took to the internet. I wanted to know all of the things I had to get. I was going to get all of them.

I did. With my first son, I had All. The. Things.

Man… it was a lot.

I was swimming in things that I never used. It was all a waste of money. You live and learn right. Continue reading “My Baby Shower “Go-To””

The Best Tip I Can Give You About Toy Story Land

If you looked on any social media this summer, the opening of Toy Story Land was EVERYWHERE. I have to admit, I was living in serious FOMO land. You know, the fear of missing out.

Even when I heard there were 6-hour lines just to get into Toy Story Land, I was sure I was missing something amazing. It was on my list to go as soon as I could.

Enter the Pitt vs. UCF game. Billiam was headed to the game and I had a whole day to myself with the boys. What to do??? What to do??? (wink, wink)

Let’s do this! Continue reading “The Best Tip I Can Give You About Toy Story Land”

Bedtime Books – Make the Most of Them

As we have started to redo the boy’s room and combine them there have been a few growing pains. Mainly that we sold the big bed before we bought new beds for the boys. No need to worry, it’s time to camp out. Turn lemons into lemonade right?

So once the other bed was taken apart and picked up by the seller up went the tent. In all honesty, it’s only been used once time outside… and a whole bunch of times in the living room.

Forgive the bed head, but he was super excited when he found out he was going to “camp out” in his room… at least for a few days. Continue reading “Bedtime Books – Make the Most of Them”
