Destin on a Dime

For the first time ever I convinced my husband to take his vacation in the summer. He works for an AC/Heating company and this is the first year he hasn’t worked in the field and was able to do so. We had originally planned a staycation but as it got…


Mermaid Birthday Party

I love to plan and have things to do but at the same time I feel overwhelmed and anxious until it’s all done. Well, my big girl turned five August 28th, and she wanted a gymnastic party with an Ariel theme, so I got to planning. I love to bake…

Back to School Door Decor

I know not everyone shares my enthusiasm for seasonal decor, but I LOVE decorating my house for the different seasons of the year. I’ve never had a door decoration for back to school, but with the twins starting this year, I thought it might be fun to put one up….
