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”

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”

An Easy Way To Make Your Own Snow

The rest of the country is covered in SNOW!!!! We have none. I’m probably the only person in Florida that is sad about that.

I know this isn’t as fun as the real stuff… but it leaves your yard smelling great after you are done playing with it. True story… Bill just walked in the house complimenting how our yard smells. Too funny. Continue reading “An Easy Way To Make Your Own Snow”

#tbt- Krispy Kreme Halloween

I’ve been considering upgrading my phone. I still have the iPhone 5. Yes, 5. I didn’t think that was a problem…but randomly this past week everyone has had some sort of comment about it. I mean, it’s not a flip phone… but it got me going through my photos to make sure everything is synced in case I do decide to upgrade. Continue reading “#tbt- Krispy Kreme Halloween”

Disney Springs – TREX Cafe

Because it’s summertime Hucklebaby was able to spend last week with his grandparents, so we drove to North Central Florida this morning to pick him up (it’s been so quiet without him around). “Little H” will go with him in a few years, but right now he gets grandparent week all to himself.

Adventure in Your Area – Get Out of The House

You know what happens when kids are out of school??? My kids run around pants-less and we veg out. It’s nice for a few days and then there is a not-so-magical moment when it switches… and the house starts to close in on us. Sometimes I think there can’t be anything out in the world near us that we haven’t already done. Continue reading “Adventure in Your Area – Get Out of The House”
