I love my kids. I love to have them home with me. But I also love the end of summer when the school excitement hits the air. The schedules, the class lists, the pretty supplies, the new clothes...the time I will soon have to myself. Oops, did I write that? This year, I will have… Continue reading K, Bye.
Today is the day most women (over the age of 35) have been looking forward to, since February, when it was announced that 90210 was in the works for a reboot. Six episodes of 90's awesomeness. Today will bring us back to when the Walsh family was the coolest family in town, when vests and… Continue reading 19335’s Peach Pit After Dark
The Williamsburg hotel rate that I booked through AAA was so affordable that we booked two adjoining rooms, one for the kids and one for my husband and me to relax in. After all, a little space is nice. While the kids were excited for the “kids’ only” room, my husband and I were excited… Continue reading Second Day, Second Park.
Literally. When Willie Nelson sang "On the Road Again" and we decided to heed his advice and head to Williamsburg, Virginia, I envisioned my family and me running through a gorgeous park, snacking on churros, making picture-perfect memories on a day with temperatures that gave our cheeks a rosy glow in all of the pictures.… Continue reading The Hottest Road Trip of 2019

"On the road again, just can't wait to get on the road again.....On the road again, going places that I've never been". Willie Nelson basically interrupted our chat and… Continue reading Tell me what you want, what you Willie, Willie Want.

The one thing he has eaten consistently over the last few years at birthday parties are donuts. Dunkin Donuts does not use pecans or walnuts, (which he was tested… Continue reading “Donut” forget about the desserts!
A centerpiece is arguably the most important part of a tablescape, especially if you're like me, going for a glam look on a paper- plate party budget. The rose ball centerpiece was really easy to achieve and made our party look posh and sophisticated for both the ladies brunch and for the tween party. As… Continue reading Breakfast at Tiffany’s Take Two; Teen Themed.
Being a mom to four children has its challenges, but also has its perks. Like when it comes to throwing birthday parties...there are a lot!! I've thoroughly enjoyed taking a theme and running with it each year for their party. Sadly, as my boys have gotten older, they have begun to poo-poo the idea of… Continue reading Throwing Parties out of the Blue….box.
Today my kids finished sixth and eighth grade. I cannot believe that I have a child entering high school and three entering middle school. I feel like I was just taking my oldest into kindergarten orientation yesterday. It's crazy how fast the years fly by. But that's not my reason for posting today. Instead of… Continue reading Navigating the potholes…
This past weekend, my family and I went back to Spring Haven Farmhouse in Lancaster, Pennsylvania for another unplugged weekend. This time, I didn't feel like lugging my huge Nikon around everywhere so I used my phone primarily to take pictures, posting a few to share with friends and family in real time. As parents,… Continue reading Goats and Cows and Chickens, Oh My!
