Recently, I surprised my kids with a going away dinner the night before we left for Disney. Because I knew we were about to spend a ton of money, I needed to keep the cost down and get the most bang for my buck. Today's blog is extremely quick and will show you how to… Continue reading Decor-eating with Disney
What I wouldn't give to go back to the days when my children and I would spend an afternoon putting together their Valentine's Day cards for friends and classrooms. Enter the teen years and those card-trading days are long over, but yet I try to hold onto the holiday with them. I will celebrate the… Continue reading I Love You to Pizzas
If you haven't already followed my blog, you may not know this about me, but I LOVE a theme. I was always drawn to Disney and the characters as a young child (see below). My parents took us there a few times, but it wasn't until I worked for their College Program that I saw… Continue reading A Little Bit of Pixie Dust…

Gone are the twinkling lights and garland wrapped down the staircase, and the house feels abnormally bland. I normally am happy with the decor of my house, except for the month of… Continue reading Love, Kisses and Galentine Wishes
This past weekend was the second "dinner and a movie" night on our holiday bucket list and it's one of our favorites...Elf! After last weeks movie not really capturing the kids attention like it used to, I'm happy to say this was still great. We giggled in the same spots, and even the teens were… Continue reading OMG Santa?! I Know Him!

Especially raising four teenagers. Oy. My tree may be up year-round. This past weekend we started our holiday movie bucket list. We… Continue reading Merry Grinchmas!
If you're part of my Facebook Daily Deals page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/2145686602405838/) or just checking off your kids Christmas lists, you probably are starting to accrue a lot of brown shipping boxes. I know I've been getting an obscene amount from Amazon. I tried to break them down really fast so my husband wouldn't see just how… Continue reading Deck the Halls, With All Your Boxes…
My husband once said, years ago, to a group of boys who came to our door one Halloween night, "Aren't you guys a little old to trick or treat?" He handed them candy and they laughed, but I was appalled that he would even say that! Especially to a bunch of boys who chose to… Continue reading Trick or Treating Teens
I know, I know...it's not even Halloween. Believe me, my house is all decked out for the trick-or-treating, but I've also heard people (especially those who see my Christmas crafting and themed movie nights) say that they wish they had the time. Well, guess what!? You do! You just have to start planning now! if… Continue reading Planning for the Ho-Ho-Holidays
It's no secret I love to theme my meals. It's truly the only time I really enjoy cooking. I wish I liked it more, especially now that my kids are getting older and don't like the cutesy little meals I once relished in making. October is a fun time to be in the kitchen. Every… Continue reading Halloween 2019: Trick or Eat.
