Fat Tuesday Family Dinner Ideas!

So, my husband literally never asks for anything specific for holidays. He's very much a "I don't need anything" kind of guy. However, this Christmas he asked for a very specific pot to cook in. I quickly realized he wanted one we could set up in the backyard, and cook for a large group! This dinner doesn't call for a large pot, but I had to show ya'll the complete joy on his face, cooking for the first time in…

Book Club February 2020: Would Like To Meet!

We are so excited to bring you a guide for hosting your own February 2020 book club to read/discuss "Would Like To Meet" by Rachel Winters. We basically googled for a new romantic release and this one piqued our interests, because we both adore romantic comedies. Personally, I was so excited to read it, because it sounded just like the light hearted read I need! I'm actually still working my way through this one, but when I finish I'll be…

Homeroom Parent Tips + Free Printable!

I have really enjoyed being "homeroom parent" or "room mom," depending on what you're school calls it. I'm doing it in Liam's class this year, and will offer to do it in Sawyer's class next year. They are only one year apart in school, so it makes it easy to just reuse lists and ideas from the previous year for my little guy. I confess that I was a little nervous about taking on the responsibility of homeroom parent, because…

Host A Watch Party For: “To All The Boys. PS: I still love you.”

I have been looking forward to this movie since last year when I first saw a tweet about the sequel coming to Netflix! I adored the movie, and ended up going and getting the book series the day after I watched it. Of course, it is a beautiful and wholesome and funny love story. Poster credit: This photo is from the movie's twitter page! It was my favorite rom com of 2018! I wasn't sure if I would like it,…

Celebrate National #PlanForVacation Day!

Did you know that this January 28th is National Plan for Vacation Day? Yea, neither did I! Alamo Rent A Car told me about it a while ago, and I’ve been loving this idea.  Alamo also taught me a couple years ago that many Americans don’t use their vacation time, so I think making this a national celebration is a brilliant idea. Putting it on the calendar each year as a reminder to sit down and plan out downtime is…
