Halloween is craziness – - at least I know it is in our house (and I’ll be sharing a little bit about the kiddos costumes and adventures this year soon!) BUT, sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in the moment. I know I’m guilty of worrying too much about getting pictures than I am about living IN the moment.. and that’s something I’m really resolving to try to change. But, we still want to capture those memories, right!?   The most ideal situation is being able to have someone else capture some...

If there’s one thing I have mastered over the years is how to buy a good bottle of wine. The thing I once had mastered that isn’t so much the case anymore? Being able to finish that bottle of wine before it goes bad. I feel like I’ve wasted several bottles, because sometimes you just want that one glass while you’re winding down at night and then by the time you’re ready for another.. it’s days down the road and the bottle you opened for that one glass is no longer fresh. I was so excited to get to...

This is a “sponsored post in partnership with Acorn Influence and SC Johnson. The company who sponsored it compensated me via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value to write it. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. Fall means chaos in our house. Time crunches, homework, soccer practice, dance class, and running on everyone’s schedules, but my own. Laundry and cleaning the house almost feels impossible to fit in when you have kiddos in school and...

I had the amazing opportunity last week to attend Paula Deen Live in Charlotte, NC and get to experience first hand what fun and how much love and heart she brings to the stage and her cooking. When Paula Deen’s team contacted me, I was pretty excited. I’m not only a Paula Deen fan, but was so eager to hear more about what she’s been up to. The most excited part of the show (aside from getting to see her with her sweet husband and sons,) was hearing about what the Deen Team has been up to and what they’re working...

Considering Sept 22nd is National Elephant Appreciation Day.. bet you didn’t know that day existed, did you!? I thought I would share this fun roundup of elephant themed products.

Stuck on You Kids Designer Labels. Having two young kids, I’m kind of addicted to labeling EVERYTHING.. if we don’t, it gets lost and having a five...

You may have noticed things around here have been pretty mute and slow moving lately. I promise, I do have a good excuse for that and our family is so excited to make this announcement and share our news with you all! When I first started this blog, it served as a way to keep family in the loop of what’s going on in our lives and it has evolved into something more that I truly love and enjoy doing. Unfortunately, sometimes life gets in the way and while I am a mom first, the updates here don’t come as frequently sometimes as...

I shipped my baby off to Kindergarten last week. Leading up to the day and the first week of seeing him off every morning wasn’t easy for this mom. While he was so completely ready, I definitely was not. Gone are the days of lounging as late as we want, staying up late watching movies and having tickle fights, and having nothing but time throughout the day to do whatever we want. Now starts the days of my sweet little man being more influenced by other adults and friends than he is by me.. and this I struggle with. I’m still...

  Even though little man has started school, we still have some warm weather to enjoy and fun filled afternoons and weekends! We love to stay active in our house and get out to do some fun things together as a family over the weekend. Why not have a picnic!?
