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…

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 son has a terrible nut allergy, so often times, we are unable to have a birthday cake made for him at a bakery. I have always made something work, but for his 13th birthday, he wanted something special. He wished for a true, allergy-friendly cake. Your wish is my command. This cake was easier… Continue reading Make a Wish…
It's October and that means the beginning of the holiday season. Each month brings a new holiday, for the next three months, ending with my most favorite time of all! But before I get ahead of myself, let's talk Halloween. I'm not sure how many of you are like me, but I typically hate cooking… Continue reading Golden is the new Orange and Black.
The summer days, filled with endless fun, wound down quicker than expected, and it's now time to get back into the routine of early nights and much earlier mornings. We have an annual tradition on "School Years Eve", where we all enjoy a Back to School breakfast, for dinner. I make a slew of pancakes,… Continue reading Beep-Beep, its Back to School
How I can have another baby about to enter the teen years? No more "Gucci, Gucci Goo's" coming from the family room. Now it's the sounds of ESPN, Fortnite games, and YouTube videos. How did he grow up so fast? My middle child. My drives-me-crazy child. He is growing into such a caring, young-man, who… Continue reading Gucci, Gucci Goo!
