A Fun Family Day

Our Saturday was one of my favorite days in some time. It was so nice to spend a day just being a family. Karate Our day started off with a mock tournament at Xander's karate school. The school had heard many comments from parents like ourselves. Many of us were...

I received the following product(s) free as part of a contest. All opinions are my own. Many moons ago... almost three years ago to the day, actually... I reviewed a selection of notebooks from a company called WAFF. Their notebooks were created based on a love for...

Summer Days

I really need to get better about watching the weather forecasts. I had no idea it was going to be such an amazing couple of days outside! Luckily, we had a chance to take advantage of them. The weather has been sunny without the typical mugginess of this time of...

Dancing in the Rain

One of Those Days

It has definitely been one of those days. I went to bed late last night and woke up far too early this morning. I couldn't get back to sleep because my husband had a serious case of gas. It's not really his fault (except that he eats complete crap) but it wasn't any...

What a Trip!

Ahhh... summer... time for the yearly road trip! Once again, Ross did most of the planning. He really enjoys the thrill of planning out these trips. He plots out maps and creates detailed itineraries... basically the polar opposite of my road trip personality. It's...
