Have you guys ever seen these featured?  I love seeing these posts when others share what's inside of their bag.  So here's what's in mine. I've been carrying my J.Jill Bucket Bag this month and still love it.  I didn't cheat and clean up so that hopefully explains the craziness of my purse.  Yes that's a Skylander, no I have no clue why it was … [Read more...]

My kids and hubby had seen it but I just had a chance to watch Big Hero 6 for the first time over the weekend last weekend. It's such a cute movie!

When I was in my 20s, I think I would have laughed at myself at 40 feeling like I would need a book to help me figure out how to make time for myself.  Of course in my 20s, I didn't have kids or a schedule that involved much other than going to work, going home and feeding myself.  My 20s are the last time I actually remember feeling like I had all … [Read more...]

Here's a nice little diddy from the Weather Channel about our weather tonight into tomorrow here in Philadelphia. Fun times, right? On top of the unbearable cold, I am home with one kid sick.

While we were in Florida last weekend, Toyota was kind enough to lend us their newest 2015 Highlander Hybrid to test out and drive around on vacation.  While I'm still driving at minivan at home, I can say with confidence that my next car WILL NOT be a minivan and will be a smaller SUV of some sort.  Our needs have moved beyond the minivan but we … [Read more...]

So I'm still here. I took a beautiful 6 days off over the long weekend with the family down in Marco Island, Florida {hotel: Marriott Marco Island}. It was glorious.
