Okay, so Fall is finally here and for me that means more than pumpkin spice everything. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s so close to my birthday or just because it’s so much fun. This year, my kids have chosen some pretty random costumes, but I’m totally okay with it. We’re all going to be dolls and  you’re going to have to stalk my Instagram account to see us on the big night because I don’t want to ruin the surprise.

It’s a little early for me to start posting Halloween related content, but I couldn’t help myself. So, I thought these colorful no-so-Halloween-ish Monster Ice Cream Cupcakes would be a great way to ease us into what will begin the start of our holi”daze”. Once we hit Halloween, the remainder of the year just flies on by.Continue Reading

Explore the Great Outdoors with the Ultimate Northern Florida Family Vacation

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ocala/Marion County VCB for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

When it comes to summer in South Florida, we are usually all about living in the moment. We tend to take things day-by-day and see where we end up. Most of our days consist of sleeping in, relaxing and lots of water activities to keep us cool. However, I do attempt a mini-vacation at some point. Depending on hubby’s schedule, of course.

As a child, I always looked forward to summer vacation and now, as a parent, I find myself feeling the same way. Between daily drop-offs, pick-ups, soccer practice, PTA and room mom duties, I look forward to the summer just as much as I did as a child. Listen, it’s tough work being a Mom and we need summer vacation too!Continue Reading

Making Memories with Dad and Gillette® Mach3® Signature Edition Razor

Making-Memories-with-Dad-01One thing that always gets me is seeing Dad’s out with their children. It’s not very often that I see this, but when I do, it genuinely warms my heart. I truly believe that children need their fathers, so seeing them out having ice cream, walking in the park or shopping makes me so happy inside. I realize how lucky I am to have a husband who is so involved with our children. Although he works crazy hours, he always finds time to spend with the kids. And the best part? The kids are totally infatuated with him.Continue Reading
