Fishing With Kids In & Around Jacksonville, Florida

Fishing season 2020 is finally upon us, so I thought I would spend a little time sharing some things you can get your kids involved in if you live near the Jacksonville/St. Augustine area. If you're a family looking to learn more about fishing and eat delicious food, I highly recommend investing in a family membership for the Jacksonville Offshore Sport Fishing Club. We joined a little over a year ago, and have learned so much. We have some incredible…

Catch Up With Me: March 2020 Edition.

March is well underway, and there is no denying the most exhilarating part of my month was my recent cruise. I had the opportunity to be hosted by Carnival cruise line as part of a group of 40 bloggers. It was such a motivating and inspiring week for me, plus it was just down right fun. Getting to spend uninterrupted with friends, learn from each other, go dancing, drink frosty beach drinks. It was amazing and that time I will…

Parenting Wisdom I Found From “Cheer” on Netflix

I cannot tell you guys how many people told me I would love the show "Cheer" on Netflix. To be honest, I was nervous to watch! I was worried they'd poke fun at a sport I know to be challenging. I was a cheerleader growing up, and as a young mama, I coached high school cheerleading. I was so blessed by the coaches in my life, and I dreamt of having some sort of impact on the girls' I coached.…

Disney Cruise Recap 2020!

I've said it before and I'll say it again: a family cruise is the best vacation with kids of varying ages. We went on a cruise in January with our family party of nearly 20, kids ranging in ages from 3-10. It was divine, the parents had ample space to move around and explore while the kids were contentedly entertained at childcare or we could all meet and participate in games and activities together. Casually playing shuffleboard with Goofy! We…

Let’s Catch Up!

It feels like its been forever since I did just an old fashioned, let's catch up post. I wanted to just take a little time and check in and share what is new in my life and share a couple things I've been loving etc.Probably the biggest thing in my life this last year has just been the transition to both boys in school full time. I absolutely love their school, and they are both thriving. It has been the…

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,…
