Add this to your weekend plans – We Rock the Spectrum – Port St Lucie

Birthdays are stressful. I’m absolutely the one that puts all the pressure on myself. I completely know that. I love all of the planning and Pinterest-ing.. but as the day gets closer and the RSVP list gets longer… the fun disappears and I’m a sweaty messy mom who is ready for the day to be over.

I couldn’t do it again this year, and turned over all of the fun and entertainment to We Rock the Spectrum in Port St Lucie. What a complete difference it made.

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.

Holiday Handprints – Add This To Your Tree The Year

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”

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.

Olive The Things You Must Have In Your Disney Bag

I feel like I’m almost a pro at what to take to Disney. We have gone at least a dozen times in the past few months and I don’t see it slowing down anytime soon.

Because we go so often, I keep a Disney bag packed and ready to go. Honestly our plans were cancelled yesterday so instead we just loaded up and drove to Disney. The bag was already ready. Continue reading “Olive The Things You Must Have In Your Disney Bag”
