Give Me Your Best {Kissimmee} Shot – PSF


I am overwhelmed by today’s experience here in Florida. After a late night getting settled in our Global Resort home and visiting with all of our blogging buddies, the morning came very, very early. We left in a Pegasus bus around 7:30 this morning to travel over to Florida EcoSafaris at Forever Florida. What a […]

Give Me Your Best Shot….From Pennsylvania!


My kids and I have spent the last 2 days in Pennsylvania with my sister and her 2 girls. It has definitely been the highlight of our Spring Break. Here’s a peek at all the fun we’ve had together… We’re heading back home tonight, and will sleep well after all the excitement we’ve had here, […]

Celebrating Day One of Spring Break with #TCBYGrocery


Sorry I’m late getting my PhotoStory Friday/ Give Me Your Best Shot post up. And please forgive my lack of fancy-camera pictures. I’ve been a little preoccupied partying with my kids. We’re celebrating the start of Spring Break!! Today the kids were in school….and tomorrow we all get to sleep in. Yes, glorious, wonderful vacation. […]

WICKED Day in New York City – PSF/GMYBS

Map of OZ - Wicked at Gershwin Theater

Riding the train to New York City is wonderful. I love the 3 hours sitting in a comfortable seat (there is so much more leg room than on airplanes) and the free wifi is a huge bonus. The trouble I have with trains, however, is that I have this odd tendency to miss them. Yesterday, […]

The Picture That Sums Up This Week – PSF and GMYBS

This week, we transitioned from mild Winter to full Spring. Windows were opened, the kids stayed outside until dark, and we all pulled out our shorts and t-shirts. It has been glorious. I’ve taken shots of the blossoms popping up on the trees in our court, sandaled feet, and the temperature reading on my car’s […]

Time With The Girls – Photostory Friday/Give Me Your Best Shot

Mirror Mirror bloggers

It’s a funny phenomenon….I’ve always been terribly shy. I was always the one to opt to read a book alone at home rather than go to a party or be around big groups of people. Somehow blogging changed all of that for me, and I no longer find myself wanting to hide inside my shell. […]

Family Fun Night With Shrek & Friends

Shrek and Friends Family fun night at the Gaylord

OK, usually the word bombarded has negative connotations, but this time it’s completely positive…. I feel like I have been bombarded with the most amazing opportunities lately. My family and I have had the opportunity to do so many things that we normally would not have been able to do. The latest incredible adventure (another […]

New York City – The Reality {Photostory Friday-GMYBS}

New York City with kids

OK, I’ve shown you the pretty pictures and shared tips on how to have a cheap day trip to New York City. And I’ve hinted to the fact that the trip was rather difficult. Today I am going to tell it like it is, nothing held back. Honestly, in the end I think we all […]

Food Photography {Help?} – PSF/GMYBS

Butterfinger blondies

Apparently, all I am good for these days is cooking. The strangest thing happened to me while I have been sick these past few weeks. I actually want to cook. Either the pneumonia has done something to my head or I’ve been spending way too much time on Pinterest while I’ve been trying to rest. […]

Look at the Stars – Photostory Friday/GMYBS

Susan Niebur memorial

This has been a rough week. First, Susan Niebur, my friend and fellow DC-area blogger died on Monday. Her passing was not a surprise. She has been valiantly fighting cancer for the last 5 years and had not been doing well of late. I’ve found that funerals are emotionally taxing, but they are cleansing as […]
