Spring Break Camp – The Palm Beach Zoo

One of the things I honestly never thought about before becoming a parent was where my kids were going to go on non-school days. It’s not on any parenting list, they just show up. I loved those random days as a kid… something fun and different, but now as a parent I’m like … OK… another day that I need to plan.

It can be a bit stressful. Where are they going to go? How are they going to get there? How will it change our schedule? AND… how do I keep them away from screens (which is a problem I’m encountering more and more).

Super Simple Mickey Inspired Ornaments

Years ago, before I even had the boys I believe…I bought a 4 pack of Disney character ornaments. I loved them. I still love them. But I remember when I paid for them thinking, ‘am I really buying ornaments that are $20 each’.

You know why I did it??? Because back then I didn’t have little hands that could in a mere 2 seconds make them come crashing to the floor. Continue reading “Super Simple Mickey Inspired Ornaments”

The Most Wonderful SLIME of the Year

Do you have slime rules in your house? Yes. Rules about slime. I do.

Slime stays in the kitchen or the bathroom. That’s it.

After I found slime mashed into pillows and the mattress…it was time to draw the line. That being said, we still make slime. I have a whole collection of slime supplies in my garage. It’s such an easy activity to do with your kids, and celebrate some of the fun of the holidays. Continue reading “The Most Wonderful SLIME of the Year”

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.
