I have absolutely fallen in love with history. The history I’m surrounded by on a daily basis. The history that I walk by, drive by, and live by but yet have no idea what it… More
Every year around this time I have a bunch of moms ask me…
“What are you doing with your kids for New Year’s Eve?”
We have never really been a family to go out and celebrate with a big adult only party. Honestly until the day we spend New Year’s Eve at Magic Kingdom in an overly priced VIP area (I can dream), we will most likely be found at home.

Deck the halls – the holidays are here!! I’m not sure how this time of the year snuck up on us so quickly, but I am beginning to get very excited about all of the festivities that are about to take place. Continue reading “How To Create The Most Festive Holiday Home”
There is something so special about the week before Christmas. Last minute preparations, final planning, the kitchen smelling like every delicious yummy food your family loves.
It’s also a time when I know I’m searching everywhere to find fun family events to keep the kids fully engaged in the magic of the season.
The holidays aren’t quite over in my house. Although I love celebrating the New Year, I love to squeeze every ounce of Christmas before I can. Great think ICE at Gaylord Palms runs until Jan. 5th.
There are so many different activities and experiences that are available at Gaylord Palms. Even simply walking around and experiencing the lights is an amazing memory. I know from experience. My dad would take me to Gaylord Opryland every year I spend Christmas with him and it is something I still smile about.
As a parent I try and make each holiday as memorable as I can. This includes a lot of activities at home, but I also love going out into my community and finding ways to add magic to our days.
The more I have done this I can say a lot of things I have found are sadly underwhelming. I do love that my kids can see past the flaws I may see and find the good. I absolutely love that.
But this experience gave ME chills. Literal goosebumps. Multiple times.
I am in charge of Christmas food every year… I love it. Our Christmas plans are staying home all day, playing with toys and eating yummy food.
I’m not sure why I wait all year until Christmas Day to make foods like this.
We started this tradition last year. It is the easiest tradition to add into your celebrations.
I mean I love any type of handprint art and this is something we can add on to year after year.
I found this burlap tree skirt on Amazon (linked) but you can really use a solid one you already have, or pick one that fits your colors. Continue reading “Holiday Handprints – Add This To Your Tree The Year”
You know those moments in life where you ask yourself, “Is this really happening?”— that’s exactly what was running through my mind the entire time I was feeding a bear. Continue reading “Busch Wildlife – Paws for a Cause”
Saturday mornings are made for baking. It is cloudy and overcast in South Florida at the moment as another Tropical Storm rolls through, so it makes the perfect morning for these to easy to be true Pumpkin Muffins. Continue reading “Two Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins – WW Friendly”
I can’t tell you why I love Halloween as much as I do. I know it has something that has grown as I’ve gotten older. I haven’t always wanted to fill an entire month with skeletons and bats… but now I squeeze as much in as I can.
