For whatever reason, I just feel more relaxed and enjoy just “being” for a few hours when brunch is involved. I’ve enjoyed this new favorite part of my week with many different… Continue reading #ftf – brunch (and #birthdaybrunch is even better!)

#ftf – FirstDayOfSchoolTraditions

#ftf = Favorite Things Friday! Traditions tend to be a big deal in our family. I’ve often joked that we could never do something cool just once – since one of us would claim it needed to be done again, since it was now a “tradition”.  Some of my favorite (legit) traditions involve “First Day… Continue reading #ftf – FirstDayOfSchoolTraditions

#Happy80thMom – July 2017

My sweet Mom turns 80 years old today! I love that she’s still active and loving life – and most of all that she loves GIRLFRIENDS and a good PAR-TAY!

#PerfectTiming – The Hollow Log Delivery – July 1, 2017

My husband has a little side hobby/business called “The Hollow Log” (which has special meaning as our girls grew up with him telling them made-up stories of animal friends that lived in a hollow log, etc.). Basically, Tom took advantage of several hail storms in our area and the fact that MANY people were replaced their damaged… Continue reading #PerfectTiming – The Hollow Log Delivery – July 1, 2017

#DatingWhileDoingWhole30 – June 11, 2017

Our daughter got engaged a few weeks ago and when the wedding date was set for 6 months later our family went in to “panic mode” with wanting to feel and look better before the big day.

#aLittleSomethingForMyMOMSGroup – April 2017

This past week, in the MOMS group that I’m apart of, we had all of the “Mentor Moms” (older women that have lived through the baby/preschool phase of life and want to offer encouragement to the younger women still in it) share some “Words of Wisdom”.  These Mentor Moms were asked to share a life changing… Continue reading #aLittleSomethingForMyMOMSGroup – April 2017
