Growing up in Florida means growing up with hurricanes. Other states have Snow Days for missing school, we have Hurricane Days. I can't count the number of times the first day of school was cancelled due to an impending storm. My son is only four, but we are about to go through his third hurricane … Continue reading Hurricane Dorian is Coming. Better Go Buy Wine.
We did a two day trip to Legoland in Winter Haven, FL recently and I thought I'd share some highlights and tips we learned along the way. It was our first time there and we were pleasantly surprised that the lines weren't hours long like at Disney and that they had a LOT of stuff … Continue reading Our Legoland Florida Adventure at Four Years Old
The Week in Review is back after a little break! I'm trying out posting on Fridays instead of Mondays. I didn't like hustling on Sunday evening trying to get a post ready.

(A Christmas timeshare treat from my mom and her husband Bill.) It was a little dated, which I … Continue reading Home to Sarasota for the Holidays
Sunday was my second time walking with the Beaches Library in the 72nd Opening of the Beaches parade. While our Florida beaches are open year-round, this event marks the start of warm sunny days and is a fun way to kick off beach season! I was really excited about making a new beach inspired costume … Continue reading Officially Ready for Summer! Opening the Beaches Parade
I'm pretty new to my neighborhood, and I'm happy to be getting to know my new neighbors, I just didn't think I'd be known for shark penis. Or claspers, if you will. I now know way more about shark genitalia than I need to. See, we all thought it was a baby ray. We are … Continue reading That one time, I posted about shark penis
I grew up in Florida, and when I was too little to care about anything except a day off from school, hurricanes were always fun and exciting. Now that I have a house, 2 cats, 2 dogs, 1 kid and 23 fish to keep safe, it's a little more stressful. As I type this, my … Continue reading IrmApocalypse…it’s coming!
