LEGOLAND Florida: What to know before you go!

I have been compensated for this post; however, I am sharing my
own thoughts. All opinions are my own.
LEGOLAND. It’s what kid dreams are made of! As far back as I can remember, LEGO bricks were the cool toy to have. I had a few sets growing up, but they were nothing quite intricate and elaborate like the ones my little ones (and maybe myself) have now. Each birthday or holiday, you can bet that there’s a new set on their list. As parents, we absolutely love LEGO sets because it allows our children to think, be imaginative and constructive.Continue Reading

Baked Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats + A Dog’s Purpose DVD Giveaway!

This post is sponsored by Universal Studios Home Entertainment. However, all opinions are my own. There are few things in life that are much better than a best friend. Sure, you’re probably thinking, “This woman is nuts!”, but am I really? You see, I’ve had pets all my life. I’ve learnt how to feed older dogs, and how to care for puppies. I’ve learned how to clean up after all kinds of dogs. (which by the way I’ve found the best roomba for pets can make cleaning up the dog fur so much easier if you’ve found this to be something you struggle with). I’ve also loved them all and experienced the pain when their time was up. I’ve had some pretty amazing dogs (and cats) in my lifetime. Do I miss them? Absolutely! Do I miss one the most? You betcha!Continue Reading

Get going in the morning with Big G Cereals at Publix!

Gearing up for school every morning can be quite the challenge in our home. My children are so much like me when it comes to getting good sleep. We basically can never get enough go it! So, when it comes to mornings, they’re usually pretty slow to get out of bed. Over time, I have found tips and tricks to get them up a bit faster. Offering breakfast seems to work because they are at the table faster before I am even done picking out their school clothes.00″ height=”1079″ />

Wow! It feels so good to finally get things going on the blog again. I had a freak accident that took me off of my feet for over six weeks, but with the help of my hubby and amazing friends, I am well on my way to getting back to my old self. Being stuck on the couch for over 6 weeks was a long road, but I am so happy to finally be walking again and getting back to our routine. However, with my time off, I was able to do a bit of planning for some new designs and create some pretty nifty holiday crafts. I’ve planned my valentine’s crafts, mother’s day creations and even some Easter embroidery designs so keep your eyes peeled for new crafts coming soon!

The Holiday’s came and went in the blink of an eye and I felt terrible that I wasn’t able to post anything for you all during that time. So as soon as I felt the least bit up to par, I started planning for Valentine’s Day. I finally had a chance to go out on my own the other night and I can’t even explain the feeling I felt when I walked into the craft store. It was a bit overwhelming and so many ideas came to mind. I literally wanted to buy the whole store.Continue Reading
