A Little Escape to Big Canoe, Georgia

We've been cooped up so much with this quarantine business that when a friend brought up a last-minute vacation to a cabin in Big Canoe, GA, we jumped at the chance to get away for a bit!

Hello Fresh Gets a 5 Star Review

I have been wanting to do a meal kit delivery service for a while now, and recently signed up for Hello Fresh. I figure I might as well do a quick little Hello Fresh review for those that might be interested in trying it as well!

All About Sponsored Blog Posts

I started this blog as a sort of personal therapy, with plans to write about whatever I wanted. The thing is, blogs cost money to maintain and I'd also like to make a little money as well, so that's where sponsored blog posts come in. I look at sponsored posts as the commercials of my … Continue reading All About Sponsored Blog Posts

A Massive Panic Attack Sent Me to the Hospital

Yesterday I was having a good day, that is, until a massive panic attack sent me to the hospital. It was a first for me, and I'm the kind of person who will do ANYTHING to avoid the doctor. I will not go unless I seriously think I am dying, and unfortunately, that's exactly what … Continue reading A Massive Panic Attack Sent Me to the Hospital

Here’s to 18 Years of Marriage

On this day, 18 years ago, I joined the Army. Just kidding...I actually got married. But it was to a man in the military, and when we walked out of the church and through the arch of sabers, I got slight sword smack on my backside and a polite "Welcome to the Army Ma'am." And … Continue reading Here’s to 18 Years of Marriage

My Face Mask is Not a Political Statement

When I donned my face mask before entering the UPS store yesterday, I didn't think I was making a political statement. I just didn't want anyone's "droplets" to get near me. Then later while checking the news, it seems to be all over the place - that the decision to wear a mask is somehow … Continue reading My Face Mask is Not a Political Statement

New Kids Book Wizard and the Lizard: Wacky Weather

When my son saw the newest Wizard and the Lizard: Wacky Weather book on my desk, he immediately grabbed it and asked "Is this the second one of that book that I love?" This is from a kid who is not actually a big fan of books, so I was surprised he remembered the first … Continue reading New Kids Book Wizard and the Lizard: Wacky Weather

I Had the Best Mother’s Day Ever

This year, due to COVID-19 quarantine, we made no big plans for Mother's Day. We didn't go anywhere for brunch, I didn't get all dressed up for a fancy dinner, I pretty much didn't even need to get out of my pajamas and I LOVED IT. Let the Mother's Day Festivities Begin! First I got … Continue reading I Had the Best Mother’s Day Ever

Happy Mother’s Day 2020

Happy Mother's Day to all the mommies! I feel compelled to post something on this day, given that this is a "mommy blog" and becoming a mom has given me a deeper appreciation of all moms and what they go through. I still think we should petition for Mother's Appreciation Week that culminates in the … Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day 2020
