Farm Days would be more accurate since we visited two days in a row! We love Gullion Farms and make it a point to visit each time they are open to the public. Sweet T even had her birthday party there this year!
The kids cannot get enough of the corn bin
And Gus wore us out going up and down the hill for the … [Read More...]
Whether video games on consoles or a computer or apps on phones and tablets, games are everywhere these days. Most are for entertainment, but many these days are focusing on education and positive thinking. Though I don't want Sweet T or Gus to be constantly staring at a screen, I appreciate that there are games that encourage learning and healthy … [Read More...]
Halloween season is here and we've already started taking advantage of local opportunities for candy and fun. Friday night we attended a community street festival that encouraged kids to wear their costumes and collect candy from different vendors. We're doing a Toy Story theme this year for our whole family and the kids' costumes were a big … [Read More...]
It finally FEELS like fall around here now. Today we're celebrating with these cute little turkeys for an after school snack. Hoping the kids gobble them right up! (*groan*)

Walt Disney World Memory Maker package can be purchased in advance for $149. I actually didn't know about this option prior to our trip last month and paid $199 for it at the park! We wound up with 223 photos of our trip and here's why it was worth it for our family even at the $199 price point. Keep reading for a few reasons why Walt Disney World … [Read More...]
On return trip from Louisville last weekend, we may have tried to stall just a little.
I'm glad we dragged our feet because we got to experience the most epic gift shop of all time in the history of ever. I'm not going to mention the name of the place since it's my intent to make you smile, not to humiliate the owners. But... when you have … [Read More...]
Taking a selfie used to be a quick snap of yourself to share with the world. The selfie phenomenon has taken on a life of its own. So much so that there's even a new fall show called Selfie and even a song. While I'm not a huge selfie-taker, I'll usually snap one when I get a new haircut or if I'm playing dress-up like in the selfie below (1920's … [Read More...]
It's October. They tell me it's fall. I'm not really convinced since the high here is 87 degrees today. I know that come January I'll be grateful I don't have to pour hot water on my car just to get the door open, but it would be nice to experience a fall and spring like other parts of the country.
Since the South has always been home, I've … [Read More...]
Last week I headed to Louisville, KY with three friends for the MOPS International Leadership Conference. These Moms Of PreSchoolers sure needed the refreshment we experienced in Lousiville over the weekend!
We spent three nights in an Executive Suite at Galt House Hotel which was ideal for our girls' getaway. Why?
1. Space - We were so … [Read More...]
We've all been there: 4:00 PM rolls around and it's time for you to figure out what you're going to feed these people...again.
I read once that it's a good habit to think about dinner right after breakfast. This means deciding what to make, figuring out if a trip to the store is necessary, setting out meat to thaw, etc. so the 4:00 blues don't … [Read More...]
I ran a Color Run with my Mom last week, it was so much fun! I highly recommend signing up if you have any type of these runs near you. Maybe I'll do a Zombie run next (10 days until the new season of The Walking Dead, ya'll!) What better way to motivate you to move a little bit faster than having a zombie chasing after you, right? As much fun as … [Read More...]
Hubs goes through hair pomade like water. Every time there's a sale, we stock up on it so he doesn't run out...even in the event of a zombie apocalypse.
With a son who shares his haystack hair texture, I have a feeling we'll be doubling our monthly pomade budget soon. ;)
Target wants you to step up your game and discover your new … [Read More...]
Our MOPS group did a fun fall make and take last Friday: It's Fall Ya'll Cookies! As soon as I brought mine home, the battle began to keep Hubs and Sweet T from fishing Reese's Pieces out of the jar. I'm going to have to gift it to someone quickly!
These Gift in a Jar cookies were a breeze for a group to assemble so they are a perfect craft … [Read More...]
I must admit I was skepitcal when I first heard of green smoothies. Eating greens is a chore enough when they're covered in yummy salad dressing so the thought of drinking them down nearly made me gag. But after I tried my first green smoothie, I was a fan! Tasty and packed with nutrition, green smoothies are the way I start my day every day … [Read More...]
