What My Family Thought Of Playing With Fire!

Disclosure: We received two complimentary tickets to see this film, and let you guys know our thoughts! On Sunday, we snuck over to the movie theater as a family (and brought three friends along!) for a matinee. I don't know about you guys, but we just don't get to the movies very often anymore. However, my kids had been laughing at this film's preview for months, my husband loves John Cena, and I LOVED Keegan-Michael Kay in "Friends From College"…

Friday Favorites: November 8, 2019

Since I had a few things I wanted to share with you guys before we head into the weekend, I decided to turn it into a post you could click on, or easily screen shot to your phone. It is so gloomy here today, but I've spent my day leisurely working in my sun room. I hope you have some fun things planned for your weekend. First up, I wanted to share that Tiny Prints is offering 10 Free Holiday…

Tips For A Smooth Holiday Season!

I've been a journey this year to a slower lifestyle. I know holidays can throw that off, because there are so many things seeking out our time and attention. So many things that are good and fun, but can just zap all of our energy if we aren't careful. So, this year I'm proposing instead of waiting until last minute, let's get a head start and tackle small, manageable projects over the next couple of months. 1) Use a service…

November Menu Plan & How To Plan A Month Of Meals.

I used to ONLY meal plan on a month basis, but really got out of the habit as the boys have gotten older. (and going to the grocery store has stopped being so miserable and awful.) However, as our schedule is filling progressively more and more with elementary school activities. I knew I had to get back into this habit. Plus, I've been going to the grocery store entirely too much! So, on Friday, I took an inventory of what…

Baking With Kids (and what I’ve learned.)

One of my aspirations for this year was to be more present with my children. Last year was stressful, the days felt blurry, wondering if we'd move or stay. I looked back at the year and felt like it just went so quickly. When I entered January, with the move behind me and feeling more relaxed I began to think about what areas of my life needed improvement. I definitely felt my kids deserved more of my attention. I had…

How I Added Acne Treatment To My Self Care Routine!

First, let me say I'm not an expert on acne. I'm just sharing about my experience here in hopes that others who struggle with acne know they aren't alone! A couple months ago, I shared a post about my pretty ongoing struggle with cystic acne over on Instagram. As always, you guys blew me away with your encouragement. So, I promised to write a blog post talking a little more about my personal experience with acne. Since having my second…

Our 2019 Trip To Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

Disclosure: Thanks to Disney for hosting us at the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party! All opinions expressed are my own. Can I just open by saying how grateful I am for the recent opportunity to visit the Magic Kingdom, and attend our first ever Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party? We had yet to attend a specially ticketed event like this since moving to the area, but I'm so glad we did so that I could hurry home and…

My Evening At The 2019 Southern Living Idea House!

My friend Ellen from Young Love Mommy generously invited me to be her date to an event with Royal Building Products, a sponsor of the 2019 Southern Living House in the Crane Island development in Amelia Island, located about an hour north of Jacksonville. I was so excited, I've been a Southern Living magazine subscriber for years now. I love the classic, coastal look I'd seen in last month's magazine and couldn't wait to see it in real life and…
