White Water Rafting on the Snake River #WW

white water rafting on the snake river

  When we passed through Jackson Hole, Wyoming, this summer, 5 of the 7 of us went white water rafting on the Snake River (the other 2 of us went horse back riding, which I'll be sharing very soon, I promise!). Everyone had a blast rafting. Although they couldn't have cameras on the raft, I caught a few shots of the wet kids when they got … [Read More...]

The Everything Gluten-Free Breakfast And Brunch Cookbook

The Everything Gluten-Free Breakfast And Brunch Cookbook

  It's not every day that I get to brag to my friends that some of my recipes have been included in a cookbook. I figured that an awesome day like this was worth bragging about...at least a little. Note: in appreciation for contributing to The Everything Gluten-Free Breakfast And Brunch Cookbook, author (and friend) Jo-Lynne Shane has … [Read More...]

Southwest Turkey Burgers

Southwest turkey burgers

This post brought to you by Butterball Every Day. All opinions are 100% mine. As my kids have gotten older, I’ve noticed something - I seem to have less time than I’ve ever had to get dinner on the table. Between homework, after school activities, sports, and my own work that always carries over into the afternoon and evening hours, it can be … [Read More...]

Dr. Cocoa – From Coughs to Smiles #DrCocoaReliefWithASmile

SAMSUNG CSC

It's the curse of the school year. It seems that no sooner have the kids started back to school than the sniffles and the coughs begin. I know that my kids are not the only ones who bring EVERYTHING home from school. "Cold season" is generally considered to last from September to April, which coincides with the months that children are in … [Read More...]

Brad Paisley Concert #WW

brad paisley concert

  When tickets for the Brad Paisley concert at Jiffy Lube Live in Virginia went on sale on Groupon a few weeks ago, I did something a little out of character. I bought tickets for the entire family. The weather was perfect. The sky was clear. The bands were on fire. We danced and we sang our hearts out (and the kids were all happy that … [Read More...]

How to Get Kids Excited About Reading

how to get kids excited about reading

My mom has always been a reader. She has had an enormous library of books for as long as I can remember, and she never fails to have a recommendation for a new book for me to read. While I was staying with her this summer, we were talking about how much she loves having access to so many ebooks now. My brother in law asked her recently how many of … [Read More...]

Yellowstone National Park #PSF

yellowstone-2-2

  It's hard to believe that I am still going through pictures from this summer's trip. I suppose this is what happens when the 6-week-long road trip ends the day before school starts. We jumped right in to the fall routine and haven't had a real chance to recover from the travel. Or maybe it's just me. I also started a new job as a … [Read More...]

Madame Picasso: Part Love Story, Part History #MadamePicasso

Madame Picasso prize giveaway

  I was sent an advance copy of Madame Picasso by Anne Girard to review, but thoughts and opinions are my own. Since before I can remember having a preference, I have been a fan of historical fiction. It is my favorite type of book to read.
