With Lent starting tomorrow, I decided I wanted to come up with a way to have more conversations about this season with my kids. I’ve really tried over the last several years especially as my kids get older, to be more intentional with our time and conversations and the way we celebrate holidays. A few years ago, I shared with you all about The Story Egg™ by Star from Afar. You start this tradition on Palm Sunday and it’s a fun and interactive way to get your kids reading scripture and teaching them about the story...

If you follow me on Instagram, I shared a new product on my Insta Stories I recently came across and couldn’t wait to share with you! If you’ve been following me for a while now, you know I’m a mom to three kids and always looking for not just the hottest new products for moms to share with you, but telling you WHY. I’m not one to fall into the trap  of neeeing every new thing that comes on the market, but I’ll tell you what, I wish I had this termo 4-in-1 baby thermometer way before now! ‘Tis the season of flu and colds...

It’s not very often I sit through a movie and feel like they literally hit the nail on the head in many ways pertaining to real life issues and trials. It’s even less often that movie features a war story where I really feel like my life can apply to what is being said. My husband is not a war veteran. In fact, I have no ties to the war at all so going into this movie, I never thought I’d be able to relate as much as I found I could. Let me start by saying, I am a huge, huge fan of Sarah Drew and Justin Bruening. Like...

In just a few short weeks, Cirque do Soleil is bringing their newest production, Corteo to our very own Queen City! Taking a new concept to the stage for the first time, Corteo is meant to give the audience a view from the performer’s point of view in addition to seeing the performance as well.  Corteo, which means “cortege” in Italian, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. The show brings together the passion of the actor with the grace and power of the acrobat to plunge the audience into a theatrical...

I’m sure most of you have heard of the Build-a-Bear “Pay Your Age Day” fiasco going down at mall’s nationwide right now. We went to our mall in Charlotte, NC this morning. I wanted to share our experience based on the things I observed and our experience. I was expecting it to be chaotic. My friend and I planned ahead as soon as we decided to go by letting the kids browse the website and making wish lists and calling our store ahead of time to learn they were opening early. However, I had NO CLUE this would be...

This post is sponsored by Stella® but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. This summer, I’ve been winging it. Winging each day with the kids. Winging what we’re going to do, what we’ll eat – you name it. This afternoon, I couldn’t wait to get in my kitchen and just create. This summer, I’m all about fresh produce and ingredients and making fun and different recipes to share with my family. I’m not normally one to come up with killer original recipes… I usually leave that to...

Living just outside of Charlotte, NC has it perks. Three hours from both the beach and the mountains. Big city opportunities with small town daily life. Movie theaters, bowling alley’s, parks, & pools galore! Basically, anything we need is right at our fingertips. Including a fun family getaway to Great Wolf Lodge! We were invited to a Media Day of Play last week and we took full advantage of such an amazing opportunity! We arrived at the lodge at 9:00am and stayed almost until they closed the water park for the day! Lucky for...

It’s been good long while since you’ve heard anything from me. While I’ll give you more on that and what’s been soaking up my time the past several months later, I’m super excited to be back and partner with our friends at Star from Afar to share something so special for this Easter season! You may remember a few years ago hearing about the Star from Afar and I’m sure you’ve spotted my pictures on Instagram during the holiday season too.
