5 Things That Make the Carry on Backpack Awesome

While most families are preparing for their children to go back to school, we're enjoying our new homeschool life. One of my favorite perks is the ability to travel when rates are cheaper and the most popular destinations are no longer packed. By traveling in the "off season", we have been able to split our vacation fund into a few different trips instead of one Summer trip. One of the most important assets any traveler can have is their backpack, so while some are buying backpacks to head back to school, we're investing in backpacks for travel.  Your backpack carries all your worldly … [Read more...]

It’s Beginning to Feel Patriotic Around Here!

As an Oriental Trading Ambassador, I receive products to test and facilitate posts. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays. Family time, lots of food, and of course, fireworks fill our day of celebration. I really enjoy decorating my home with patriotic items for the entire Summer, so I usually decorate a few days before Memorial Day and leave it up until the end of July. I'm just a Southern gal who loves her nation, and I make it obvious. I haven't really had a chance to hang my red, white, and blue outside this year. Afternoon pop-up storms … [Read more...]

Aubrey’s 4th Birthday Western Shindig

I am proud to be an Oriental Trading ambassador and received product to facilitate this post. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. Yesterday, I mentioned the little one turned 4. Seriously, she's FOUR y'all! Where did the time go? It seems like this was just yesterday! It definitely doesn't feel like that photo was taken four years ago, but it's time to come to terms with my baby growing up on me, even if I'm not ready for her to yet. We celebrated the big 0-4 with a Western Shindig, per little Miss Big Girl's request. What is it with both of my kids requesting cowgirl/western … [Read more...]

Relaxing Summer? What’s That?

Summer is supposed to be about relaxing, right? Not for us! Yesterday's Summer Solstice may have been the official start to Summer, but I definitely didn't have a chance to slow down and relax. I never imagined I would be a newly homeschooling mother at the same time my home business would see huge growth. The hours have been long, but I'm hustling along, doing my best to stay organized and on track. June has been full of birthdays, including my own newly 4 year old, Father's Day, and graduations. I between all the events, I've split my time between our choice to begin homeschooling in June … [Read more...]
