Halloween Movies for Kids

  Oh my goodness, ya’ll! I cannot believe it has been a whole month since I posted anything! I should be fired! Seriously though, things have been super hectic lately with celebrating our anniversary, going to Disney, staying on top of my school work, starting to night wean (don’t even get me started), making Halloween costumes and keeping my business running. Add to that the fact that we’ve been sick twice in the past month, and it’s a wonder we have survived! Side note, I…Continue Reading “Halloween Movies for Kids”

National Pancake Day

Yum! Today is National Pancake Day! Pancakes are one of my absolute favorite foods! It was one of the first things I learned to make on my own, and remains one of those comfort foods that can take me back to a time when life was much less complicated. But when I started on this road to health, that was one of many unhealthy habits I gave up. I used to have pancakes at least a few times per month, sometimes having it for breakfast,…Continue Reading “National Pancake Day”

Largo Turtle Park Review

  George C. McGough Nature Park, also known as “Largo Turtle Park” is arguably one of the best parks in Pinellas County. Unfortunately, it is not very well known. I have lived in the area for over 8 years, but was just recently made aware of this hidden beauty.   Located at 11901 146th St N, Largo, FL, this FREE state park is open to the public Tuesday – Sunday (closed on Mondays). If you plug this into your GPS, beware! It took me past the…Continue Reading “Largo Turtle Park Review”

Friday, I’m In Love #001

While I wouldn’t go as far as saying I am a fan of The Cure (not that I don’t like them, I just don’t know that much of their music), I do really enjoy “Friday, I’m in Love”! So, as a tribute, I’m going to be starting a weekly Friday post with all the things I love! This could be anything from Disney restaurants, to etsy findings, to cruise excursions that sound great, to educational toys, to favorite nail polish colors. Pretty much anything goes…Continue Reading “Friday, I’m In Love #001”

Lemon Feta Green Beans

  Nothing says summer to me like lemon and green beans! Green beans are one of my favorite veggies, and I like just about anything that has lemon in it! A friend shared a Roasted Garlic Asparagus with Feta recipe recently, and it inspired me. I’m not a huge fan of asparagus though, so I switched it out for the green beans, since I already had that on hand. I call this “Lemon Feta Green Beans”!   Ingredients: 1 lb. green beans 1/8 C extra…Continue Reading “Lemon Feta Green Beans”

Easy DIY Father’s Day Frame

Are you looking for a last minute idea for Father’s Day? Well I have just the thing for you! Last year, I had ordered my husband the football jersey that he had been bugging me to get him FOR MONTHS, and it was supposed to arrive the Thursday before Father’s Day. I had it shipped to work, so that Mr. Nosey wouldn’t see what it was. If he’d seen the package from NFL.com, he would’ve known right away what it was. I was working from…Continue Reading “Easy DIY Father’s Day Frame”

This post was actually written by her a few years ago, for a different blog. So, here is her healthy chicken pasta salad recipe! I hope you…Continue Reading “Healthy Chicken Pasta Salad Recipe”

Top 5 Grilled Veggies Recipes

  While Memorial Day is about much, much more than family barbeques and get togethers (and I could never put into words how grateful I am for the sacrifices of those who have given their lives for our country, and their families), it is unofficially considered the kickoff to grilling, summer, beach trips and all things outdoorsy.   Grilling is my favorite way to prepare food. Something about the smoky flavor, combined with the fact that it can be an easy, healthy option, just makes…Continue Reading “Top 5 Grilled Veggies Recipes”

Eggnog Muddy Buddies Chex Mix

  Several weeks ago, I found these Eggnog Candy Melts at Walmart. I grabbed them, not knowing exactly what I would use them for, but knew I would come up with something great.     Although Christmas is over, it is still pretty chilly, and that means it is the perfect weather for eggnog. I love eggnog! I also love snack mixes! I decided these eggnog candy melts would be the perfect addition to this Christmasy chex mix. I added craisins, pistachios and mixed nuts…Continue Reading “Eggnog Muddy Buddies Chex Mix”
