Getaway House: The Relaxing Vacation We All Need

Life is busy and honestly, I’ve been exhausted lately. Always having to be “on”, feeling overwhelmed trying to juggle family and work life, and constantly wondering why there never seems to be enough hours in the day. 

Rather than continue in this draining cycle, my husband and I decided to escape the noise and take a break from our hectic schedules. 

I had the incredible opportunity to work with Getaway House for a hosted stay, and the two of us recently left the busyness (and our kiddos) behind for a refreshing weekend in the great outdoors of North Georgia!

That One Time I Became a Fashion Model When I Turned 38

On November 14th I celebrated my 38th birthday. I planned on sharing a photo on social media that day to celebrate a “new year, new me” or something like that LOL, but my day ended up being a whirlwind and I never had the time. I was too busy being pampered and prepping for something I never thought I’d do.

That night I walked the runway at Wine, Women & Shoes!

Donuts with Dad and a Fizzy Fall Treat!

This post is sponsored by Sparkling ICE but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Saturday’s are for family and we love spending time together. Few things make my heart burst more than seeing my husband dote on our children, and they love having daddy/daughter time with him.

The weekdays have seemed especially hectic and rushed lately, so we decided to enjoy the rarity of a crisp fall afternoon (it’s hot in Georgia!), and set-up ‘donuts with dad’ in our backyard!

Taco Bout a Birthday Cake with AGM Bakery!

When I was pregnant with Evie my sweet friends and family threw me a “Rainbow Baby Fiesta” baby shower. It was colorful and fun, and we munched on my favorite Mexican food.

When it came time to plan Evie’s first birthday I thought it would be great to somehow connect that special day with this one, so I decided on “Let’s Taco Bout A Party” as a theme!

I knew it had lots of potential for cuteness and decor, but more than anything I wanted to make sure we had plenty of delicious food. We had tacos (duh,lol), but I also wanted a show-stopping cake that would tie in beautifully with the theme.

We partnered with AGM Bakery for our cake needs and they did not disappoint!!

A Back-to-School Incentive with 3M & Fandango!

This post is sponsored by 3M but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

As the summer winds down I like looking back at some of our more memorable moments. It wasn’t all fun and games, and in fact, I struggled quite a bit with my own patience and the constant bickering between my girls. However, the sweetest things happened when we were all together and I am going to miss having them home. At least some days. 😉

I have one child who is very nervous to start school for the first time, so I’ve been trying to think of ways to make the transition as smooth as possible.

One of our favorite traditions was having a movie night so I’ve promised to continue that throughout the school year as well. They love movies like their mama, and it gives them something to look forward to. We can cuddle up on the couch together, or, thanks to 3M we can treat ourselves to a movie in the theater!
