The Peachtree Hills Festival of the Arts and the Living Social Wine Festival are both happening on the same weekend! The bonus for you is, [...]
I love sharing photos on Instagram! I’m a filter and photo edit app addict too. What I am not so good doing, is participating in the fun photo-a-day projects that float around in all my social circles. I started one month, and I think I made it to day 3. June is the month for [...]
I’ve attended multiple #SugarComa events presented by the lovely Shameeka, from The Broke Socialite, and I have enjoyed every single one, and so have my children. The Sugar Coma events are super fun and family friendly, and don’t forget about the awesome sugar high! And subsequent, inevitable, crash nap. Now there is a new event on the horizon! Wahooo! [...]
Do you believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? I do, and our family likes a hearty breakfast! Most weekends we wake up later than our normal routine, eat quick and easy meals, and then we are out the door for the next adventure. Sometimes though, the quick and easy isn’t [...]
You may have noticed around this blog I have a little obsession with food. I could talk, write, and make food for hours. I love spending time in the kitchen as long as I am not doing the dishes. As a parent, I need to make good choices for my children when it comes to [...]
I struggle to work out on a regular basis. Yes, I go to the park with the kids, swim in the pool, but I never really schedule any specific time to workout. That needs to change. I am over 40, and need to focus on my health, not only for myself, but for my children. [...]
Guess who is going out on the town tonight? Yeah! That’s right! This mom! Wahooooo! Tonight three friends and I are going to see Flashdance, the musical, and it is going to be so AWESOME! Celebrating its 30th Anniversary, the pop culture phenomenon of FLASHDANCE is now live on stage. With electrifying dance at its [...]

I know Halloween was last week, but I just couldn’t resist sharing pictures! I love Halloween, and we brought Baby home from the hospital on October 31st, so it will always be special to me. Here we are ready to go out and snag some yummy candy!
This past weekend was full of fun! My parents were in town, Baby turned 8 and we finally set to carving our pumpkin! After years of so-so pumpkins, I finally broke down this year and bought an actual pumpkin carving kit, complete with stencils. I told DH it was for the kids, but between you and [...]
Or maybe a better title would have been… Holy Crap! How am I old enough to have a SECOND GRADER! What a difference three years makes. Baby was 4 (going on 5) in the left picture, excited to be starting a new school in a new state. This year Baby is 7 (going on 15 OY!), and [...]
Now we just have to raise that seat for my tall girl! It seems she grew a few inches overnight again!
Nothing better for Baby, than some old fashioned Tic Tac Toe and some one-on-one time with Poppy.
Other Fun Stuff Going On In The Kitchen
Each morning I remind my 8 year old to brush her teeth, and every night without fail, I send her up to brush them again before bed. But I have a horrible confession to make. I don’t do the same. I am pretty much a slacker, when it comes to my own tooth protection and [...]
Chocolate and peanut butter. One of the BEST combinations out there in my opinion, and when you add banana into the mix, it’s over the top. You already know I am crazy for bundt cakes, so it should be no surprise that I am sharing this amazing Peanut Butter Banana Bundt Cake with Chocolate Chips [...]
I am participating in the Verizon Wireless Ambassadors program. I have been provided with a wireless device, and three months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product. If you didn’t notice all my tweets a few weeks ago about how YOU could get an awesome 25% discount coupon for any Verizon accessory, I’m [...]
It’s Memorial Day weekend! That means a three day weekend is upon us, and I have an extra day to spend with the family. The weather is cooperating, and holiday picnics are in the air. I am excited to be back participating in this week’s #SundaySupper, and we are all thrilled to be sharing our [...]
My apologies for the kitchen being extremely empty the last week or so! Life has been crazy with events and the end of school quickly coming to a close this week! I have so much to share and no time to write it all down! To tide you over, I have a delicious recipe post [...]
