The fabulous ladies of Circle PR weren't actually on the boat, but they were with us in spirit on the morning of our Portofino Dolphin Cruise thanks to their generous sponsorship. The relaxing cruise was the perfect way to wrap up our jam-packed weekend.
Yes, we saw lots of dolphins as promised! Even a couple a babies. The "awwwws" coming from the … [Read More...]

I hope all you moms had a happy Mother's Day! We enjoyed a Mother's Day "Eggs-pect the Best Brunch" at church thanks to Eggland's Best eggs. It was special to be able to spend the day with my own mother, enjoy the company of my daughter, and know that her little brother or sister is on the way! We enjoyed a morning of food, fun, … [Read More...]

Friday was a bittersweet day for me. It was sweet because we enjoyed a mini-spa day and Blue Bunny ice cream, but a little bitter since this was our last MOPS (Mom's Of Preschoolers) meeting of the season. I'm going to miss the fellowship and support of this wonderful group of women, but at least we have a few playdates … [Read More...]
Are you crafty? I am in my heart, but the actual crafting process has come to a crawl in the wake of motherhood, pregnancy, and blogging. Still there are a few things I occasionally make the time for like digital scrapbooking, making bird's nest necklaces for baby showers, and crocheting play food for Sweet T.
Factory Craft Direct supplies busy … [Read More...]
We joke that Sweet T has a drinking problem. She's practically a camel! It's a good thing she only gets milk and water at home since she's probably drink even more if soft drinks, tea, and juice were available all the time. We received a set of Tommee Tippee Explora drinking cups that have a 9oz capacity. Since we were using a small 6oz cup for her … [Read More...]

For someone who is terrified of heights, I had a serious adventure this weekend. Adventures Unlimited provided Brandcation bloggers with a zip line experience that we will never forget! Our amazing guides Desiree and David kept us safe and made sure we had a blast. Fun fact: Desiree zips seven days per week at Adventures Unlimited (even in the … [Read More...]
Conservative best describes my fashion style (ok sloppy best describes it now that I'm a mom, but you know what I mean) and I'm happy to have found a product that will help with my cleavage-phobia. I've never been one to "let it all hang out" so fortunately when I was a teen it was popular to pair a tank top with low-cut or button-down shirts. … [Read More...]
There was food, there was fun, there was fatigue! I don't think I've keep such an intense pace of activity since before I was married. At 21 weeks pregnant, I'm proud of myself for keeping up! Over the next two weeks I'll be documenting each adventure in it's own post, but first I want to take the time to thank some of our amazing … [Read More...]
Beautiful morning here in Pensacola at the Portofino Resort! We're off for our ziplining and tubing adventure where I'll stay protected from the sun all day long thanks to UV Skinz. Special thanks too to Mellisa from Fun Saving Money for bailing me out on a shoe situation this morning. :) … [Read More...]
Only 31 hours left until Brancation kickoff! Can you tell I’m excited? What exactly is Brandcation? If you didn’t read my previous post about it, I’ll do a quick recap. Brandcation is a Brandfluential-hosted event at which some of the most influential bloggers in the blogosphere meet to network and to promote the brands that we love. … [Read More...]

I love growing our own food right in our backyard. Besides the convenience, health benefits, and reduction to our carbon footprint, it’s just plain satisfying to nurture something from seed to table.
It’s just not feasible for our young family … [Read More...]
Each week I received inquiries in the form of everything from serious emails to offhanded comments about how to start a blog. Mom bloggers in particular have a bad rap for being snobby, cliquish, and unwilling to help others now that they themselves have "made it to the top" (where ever that is). While I'm sure there are genuine cases of this … [Read More...]
