How Many Days Until Christmas?

December 1st is a bit depressing. I wait for the Holidays all year and when they finally come, I wish they hadn’t. They go by too quickly! While getting ready for school, Princess A reminded me that Christmas will be here before we know it. She continued to lament that it will all be all over too fast and then we will have to wait all year again. I think… no – I know – she gets it from her Abu! Many a family vacation that on the first day I was reminded that our vacation was almost over and we’d have to leave soon.   [Read more…]

House Divided

It’s that time of year. A splendid time when I root for Gators and my husband for the Noles. Did I mention our beautiful daughter joins me 99% of the time rooting for the Gators? We are in fact a House Divided. Like clockwork, when this glorious time of year rolls around, we fight like…  well…. Gators and Noles. We try to be civil, but alas we are not that mature.  [Read more…]

{SMARTIES Valentine’s Day Printable}

So, it’s almost Valentine’s Day! YEAH!!! Standing between us and Valentine’s Day is Super Bowl XLVIII. Are you ready for some football? We will be having friends over for the game so the planning has commenced. But I digress, back to Valentine’s Day. This year, I didn’t want to do the conventional Hello Kitty or Disney Princess Be Mine card. They are cute and quick, but I had an extra hour to spare – crazy I know – and decided it’d be fun to do a craft with the Princess. [Read more…]

{Never Forgotten}

It’s Memorial Day! That glorious day that we get to spend time with our families, bbq, and enjoy the beautiful weather. Most importantly, we get to remember those proud men and women that have sacrificed their lives for us. We often hear all the negative things that surround us on a daily basis. I tend to err on the positive side. We are a great country, with wonderful things to offer. Cue the music…

{French Vintage Picnic}

I’ve always felt that mommies are way too important to only celebrate them only once a year. A simple “I Love You” or “Thank You” goes a long way in making mommy feel special year around.  With that being said, I’ll never turn away an extra hug and kiss on Mother’s Day! This year, Mother’s Day was extra special.  [Read more…]

{Family Bunting Spring Wreath}

Spring is here! Well, it’s been here for a while. I am finally done decorating the outside for spring. 🙂 Through winter, work, and pure laziness, the entrance looked neglected and sad. Really, it did! Like I mentioned in {Sand & Sunburst}, I randomly decide that I need to redo something.  Either I need to stop going to sleep or spending hours on Pinterest. What do you think would happen first? Yea, sleep is overrated anyways. [Read more…]

{Sand & Sunburst}

One thing I love about my hubby is that he is AS impatient (or more) as me. Saturday morning when I woke up, I came downstairs directly because I couldn’t stay in bed any longer. I needed to share with my hubby that we were about to embark on another adventure.

{Easter Dessert Table}

So Easter has come and gone. Our Easter consisted of mass on Sunday morning, a family BBQ, and March Madness in between. For so many reasons, it was a beautiful day. The weather was perfect, the message during mass was inspirational, and whenever you can get together as a family and celebrate, it’s a glorious day! [Read more…]

{Chick You’re So Cute}

Easter is around the corner. As you know, we already made Bunnies in a Basket to celebrate this festive season. Although we decorated the house, we still didn’t have a decoration for the front door. So, we did what any All-American family would do… hit up the Dollar Store. We can spend hours there. For once I was ready to check out while the hubby and Princess were still walking up and down every aisle.  [Read more…]

{With My Little Eye}

As I mentioned before, I have a handsome nephew that’s on the Autism Spectrum. He’s the cutest thing you will ever meet. Often we need to find something to redirect his attention. While looking for sensory activities, I found this great tutorial for an I Spy Bag. [Read more…]
