A Sweet Chocolate Treat + Walmart Giveaway!

I know everyone says it, but I really do have the best mom in the world. I’m so happy we were able to celebrate Mother’s Day together, and although circumstances have been pretty hectic lately, I wanted to make sure I showed her how much I love and appreciate her. 

 

In addition to spending time with my mom, her not-so-subtle hints were duly noted, and we wanted to get her exactly what she wanted. While she definitely appreciated the clothes and accessories she received, I wanted to make sure she had a special sweet treat too! You have to include something yummy, ya know?

So I added MILKA OREO Chocolate Candy to her bag, and finally her gift was complete!

Our Appetizing Anniversary Dinner at Kona Grill!

My husband and I celebrated our 7th anniversary on Monday. 7 years!! Wow! Time flies when you’re having fun right? So they tell me. Hahaha.

As much as we’d love a weekend getaway, the timing isn’t great right now. So we spun our wheels a bit thinking about how we wanted to celebrate, and decided to try Kona Grill for the first time.

We were looking to have a great dining experience to go along with some excellent food (that we didn’t have to share with children!), and we definitely picked the right place!

A Memorable Evening with Disney on Ice presents Worlds of Enchantment

I received complimentary tickets from Feld Entertainment., Inc, in exchange for a review. As always, the opinions shared here are 100% honest and my own.

My family and I just enjoyed a wonderful night out. We went to Disney on Ice presents Worlds of Enchantment, and had the best time!! Due to his work schedule, my husband and I rarely have a family night out during the week, and we couldn’t wait to see how our daughter’s reacted to the show.

Truth be told, we were just as giddy and excited as they were, and it did not disappoint!

The Gift of Life; Happy Birthday Dad!

Dear Dad,

We celebrated your birthday today.

It wasn’t the party we might have previously envisioned, and the circumstances were nothing we would have desired.

We weren’t at a restaurant of your choice. We weren’t shaking our heads as you pretended to scan the menu as if you’d actually try something different for a change.

We weren’t having a family game night, talking trash to one another as the cards fell across the table. We weren’t teasing lovingly commending your persistence even though you have a knack for coming in last place.

We weren’t even at your house because you’re not there. You’re not there and I know that’s the birthday wish that supersedes them all.

But you are here with us, which is a blessing in itself.

You’re here after that alarming text I received on the afternoon of April 4th.
