This past weekend Sissy began a new journey for our family. I officially became a soccer mom when my four year old started her very first season of soccer. She’s excited, I am excited, the whole family is excited and I can’t wait to see her in her tiny uniform. But I’ll let you in on […]
I am memorized by Cirque du Soleil. The creativity, the costumery and the choreography! What those performers do on the stage is truly like magic. I have seen several Cirque du Soleil shows over the years including the local La Nouba and several traveling performances. Each is unique and does things I never thought possible before. Later this […]
This National Teddy Bear Day post is sponsored by Build-A-Bear Workshop. What is the name of your child’s special Teddy Bear? In our house, K’s is Pink Bear and Sissy has two Big Bear and Pink Bear. They are well-loved and a bit worn from lots of cuddles and tumbles in the washer, but my […]
My kids spotted the billboard months ago on the side of the Arena, and now it is almost here. Disney On Ice Presents Follow Your Heart is coming to Orlando September 2 – 4, 2016. Read on for a coupon code and ticket giveaway. This post is sponsored by Feld Entertainment. My family adores Disney On […]
It’s that time of year when parents take a look at their kids closet and realize, “My child grew 2 inches since they wore these clothes. Nothing fits!” That’s right, it’s time to go back to school clothing shopping. And if your child is anything like mine, they have some pretty distinct opinions of what they will and will not wear.
These printable lunch box jokes are sponsored by Save-A-Lot. It’s time once again to return to the lunch box packing routine. In my house the routine starts with the weekly question, “What do you want in your lunch this week?” In order to meal plan for the week. This week’s request is for a peanut […]
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Beneful. All opinions are 100% mine. When Bear and Bella were younger, we took them everywhere with us. I even had one of those purses I could put them in and tuck under my arm. We took them shopping (at dog friendly stores), traveling and, of […]
Dad is really just a big kid. This has never been more clear to me than as my daughters discovered the world of Star Wars. While Dad was always willing to sit and play dolls when asked, he is thrilled when he is asked to play Star Wars action figures with the girls. Imagine his excitement […]
Last week my family and I attended our very first Orlando City Soccer game — what a fun night! Our attendance was sponsored by Neutrogena who has partnered with MLS to raise awareness of the importance of skin protection on and off the field as part of the Choose Skin Health campaign. Whether you are playing soccer […]
When we first set out to teach our daughter how to ride her bike, I pictured a fun afternoon with a warm breeze laughing as she peddled faster and faster until she was riding around the block with ease. The reality of teaching her to ride a bike was anything but easy — she just […]
How will you keep your family cool and entertained this summer? If your kids are like mine, they love to splash in the water every chance they get. From swimming in the pool to running in the sprinklers they love to get wet. On of their favorite water toys continues to be the Step 2 […]
My daughters welcomed spring with a splash. But as they joyfully jumped into the pool for the first time this season, I took a look at our neglected porch. Layers of spring pollen and filth covered everything. After some serious cleaning, the patio was once again a clean slate. In partnership with Better Homes and […]
My kids don’t eat a lot of sandwiches because their lunch of choice is a meat and cheese roll up. I am not sure why they are anti bread (unless it is a dinner roll), but that’s what they like. Because turkey/cheese and ham/cheese rollups are a staple in our house I was intrigued when I learned […]
The end of the school year is an important rite of passage for students of all ages, but for graduating seniors it is a monumental occasion. One that should be celebrated and reflected upon. This year I will wish two special young ladies a happy graduation as they move onto the next chapter in their […]
Family adventure awaits in Florida’s Gulf County, and you are invited to explore what this quiet strip of coast has to offer for a chance to win a family vacation. I had the opportunity to visit GCFL two years ago, and my family is still dreaming of returning to the beautiful and untouched Florida treasure.
