Ice Gaylord Palms 2019 – Polar Express

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.

Bright Line Polar Express – 10 Reasons Why You Must Go To The North Pole

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.

Halloween Snickerdoodles – A Family Tradition Continues

I know technically it is still September, and for a lot of people that is still too early for Halloween anything. Around my house Halloween starts at the end of August.

I am torn between Halloween and Christmas for my favorite holiday but I love the joy of celebrating ANY holiday. Not just the big ones. Continue reading “Halloween Snickerdoodles – A Family Tradition Continues”

Kids in the Kitchen – Cowboy Bean Salad – Low WW Points

I have no idea what made me think of this recipe. It is one of those things that I know I made in Home Ec ages ago and loved… but isn’t something I think I have ever made since.

Sidenote: is there still a such thing as Home Ec?

One of my favorite parts about this “salad”, I use that word loosely, is the crunch on top. Normally in the past I would have used Doritos… but since discovering Fit Crunch Protein Puffs, I have fallen in love with them and the protein they offer. They are the perfect compliment to this meal.
