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”

Stone Mountain Adventures

As a little girl, I would travel to a lot of places in the south with my grandparents and dad during our summer visits. One of the places I remember going was to Stone Mountain. It was a special memory for me so as we were planning our trip to the Atlanta area, I knew this one one of the places I wanted to take my boys.

Thinking back on my memories I remember it being hot, I mean Atlanta in the summertime…. I remember a huge lawn and watching a laser light show. Aside from that, I don’t remember much else that they had. Continue reading “Stone Mountain Adventures”
