My sister-in-law had her baby shower a few weekends ago down in south Florida. The whole family and I went down for the weekend and had an absolute blast. My sister-in-law has the crafty gene too so we get along really well. I decided to make her a ruler growth chart. I had made one […]
My daughter will be turning 7 in 25 days! Wow! There is no way she can be 7 already, but the calendar does not lie. Starting around my birthday which was at the end of April, my daughter asked me everyday, “How many days until my birthday?” Everyday I would quickly do the math in my […]
Over the last year I am come to love and respect the power of honey. Did you know honey is the only food that does not go bad? Honey is not just a sweet food to smear on your toast, but it also has numerous medicinal uses including a cough suppressant, can get rid of hiccups […]
It was just a matter of time before we got invited to a Frozen themed birthday party. Ironically my 3 year old son was the first and not my six year old daughter, but I am pretty sure he knows the words to all the songs anyways because that is all we listened to in […]

After we constructed our car out of an old […]
This past weekend I did the Glass Slipper Challenge at Disney World along with my friend and best running partner, Brooke. We ran the 10k on Saturday and then the half marathon on Sunday. Man, what an adventure! Despite having to get up at 2:30am two mornings in a row and a bus driver who […]
This past weekend we celebrated my son’s 3rd birthday. Three! Really? It seems like yesterday I was waddling around with him in my belly. Time sure does fly when you are having fun!
My son is enfatuated with Lightning McQueen and the whole Disney Cars gang…Mater, Sally, Luigi. Honestly, I kind of like them too. […]
Over the years we (my husband) has accumulated hundreds of DVDs. This past fall we had a garage sale and got rid of 75% of them. That left us with about 100. Thank goodness because they were taking up so much space sitting in boxes in the garage I would give them the evil eye […]
