When Nate was a toddler (he's now 10), I was at a park with him in Florida with my Mom.  We were visiting my parents and my Mom and I had taken Nate for an hour to play at the local playground.  I didn't yet have Cole and I don't remember being pregnant so Nate had to have been 2 or less which means this story is 8 years old.  I'm telling you all … [Read more...]

My kids got out of school for the summer on June 13th but I have a feeling that today is going to feel like the real first day of summer.  Why?  For third year in a row, we took off in the afternoon of the 13th for our annual road trip.  We got back yesterday afternoon.  12 days, 1,500 miles and 6 states.  Over the next couple of days I'll be doing … [Read more...]

Day three of our family road trip and we're in the car from southern North Carolina and heading to Williamsburg, Virginia. GPS puts today's trip at a little over 4 hours.

Since I tend to overshop, I'd say I am the queen of it.  But sometimes, I also get  didn't-buy-regret (is there an actual name for … [Read more...]

One week 'til the 4th!  Do you have plans?  Weirdly, we don't have huge plans this year.  We're usually at the shore but this will be the first weekend we aren't at the beach (unless we cave and find a hotel last minute). Wherever you are, it's always fun to add some red, white and blue in your wardrobe during the week of the 4th.  Here are 3 … [Read more...]

I have a gym routine. Each day I have a different class I take and I am pretty much a regular depending which day of the week it is. I have one class I double up on weekly because I love it so much - Les Mils BODYCOMBAT. I had taken Kickboxing and other cardio boxing type-classes but when BODYCOMBAT came to my gym two years ago, I was hooked after … [Read more...]

Are you a pickles fan? Then do I have the party for you? I'm co-hosting a Twitter Party tonight for Farmers Garden by Vlassic pickles. Love these farm fresh pickles that come with all natural ingredients fresh from the farm and straight to your plate.  Everything on the ingredient list is something you can see and identify in the jar!
