I don’t know about you but I could totally use a vacation. To sit and watch the waves come in, sand under my feet and the sounds of the ocean. Doesn’t that sound like a dream? It does to me, plus the furthest I have been was California beaches to the North Carolina beaches. I’d love to see the Tropics! This momma of five deserves it. Don’t you think?

January 6, 2017 By · No Comments

Disclosure: I bought this game, we love it. The links in this post are affiliate, if you click them I might make a few pennies. A few pennies add up and then I can buy more board games. hehe

Family Fun Night: Bounce Off the Board Game

We are a Board Game Loving family. Why? Simple! It’s a TON of fun, plus you get to spend time with your kids. What better excuse to go out and buy board games? Every Friday I pull out a board game and we play it for a few hours. After a few hours we settle in the living room and watch a movie together.

Little A got Bounce Off Board Game for Christmas. Honestly I had never heard of it but the three older ones talked non-stop about it when we were looking through store catalogs and flipping through Amazon. The only time I had heard of a game like this was ummm….Beer Pong. No, I never played that game and that isn’t this game.

40 by 40 Bucket List

January 1, 2017 By · No Comments

40 by 40

2017 is a year of many things for different people. Last year I chose the word “GROWTH” for my word for the year. This year it is looking more like “FEARLESS” will be my word. As I approach 40 I want to be happy about the number, not fearful. Currently I want to be able to state I have done something more than just being a wife and a mom. But in life, opportunities that came I was too scared to do, or worse I wouldn’t even consider because of some fear I had. I no longer want to NOT do things. Here is my 40 by 40 Bucket List. I’d love to see your bucket list.

  1. Go river rafting
  2. Take my kids camping
  3. Go fishing
  4. Visit some of the local farms (Kelsay Farms/Watermann’s Family Farm)
  5. Lose 60lbs
  6. Enter my first 5K walk
  7.  Have a garden that actually has fruits and/or Vegetables.
  8. Join a softball team
  9. Learn to swim
  10. Learn to ski

Grinch Cake Mix Cookies Recipe

Grinch Cake Mix Cookies with tiny Mint Hearts!

Nicoli and I wanted to make cookies one day and had recently heard of cake mix cookies at story hour. I decided to go to the store and see what we could create. We saw lots of cake mixes to choose from and in the same aisle was all the Christmas stuff and someone walked by with a sour attitude and I immediately thought about Grinch. We’d make Grinch Cake Mix Cookies!

Aren’t those Grinch Cake Mix Cookies cute? I’m the type of mom that loves to tie baking into something to read or watch. These cookies would go nicely with a hot chocolate, curled up in the living room watching “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” Don’t you think so?

Ingredients for Grinch Cake Mix Cookies:

  • Cake Mix
  • food coloring (green)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • powdered sugar
  • Andis mints
