Up, Up and Away!

I recently had the pleasure of winning a hot air balloon ride. Yes, you heard that right, I won a hot air balloon ride! Let me tell you, it was absolutely AMAZING! I entered the contest without telling anyone and with my little girl in mind. She is a little dreamer and has been telling my husband and me that she wanted to ride in a hot air balloon since she was able to talk. We started taking her to our local balloon glow and launch before she was two and ever since she has dreamed of riding in a hot air balloon and touching the clouds. UpUpAndAway1 Continue reading

Squish Your Mama

I am not what I refer to as a squishy person. I love my friends and family but I do not openly show my love in a squishy way except with my kids. I squish them all day! I grew up in a family of non-squishy people. My family is not cold but less affectionate than some. I have thought about it and often wished I was different.

9 Ways to Tackle ‘Tude in Tiny Humans

I don’t know about you but sometimes the tiny humans at my house get the best of me with poor attitude. Actually my not so tiny human can still throw a little ‘tude my way too. Some days I can handle it and some days I want to hide under the covers and eat all of the candy in the house.
