Reclaiming a Deck from Neglect in Time for a Birthday Celebration

We recently purchased deck furniture to replace a table and chair set that was completely rusted. Like more rust than metal. The table and chair set was new to us 12 years ago when we built our deck, but had been my in law’s for about 15 years. To say that this table and...

Eating Our Way Through @CaesarsAC #DOAC #TasteofAC #JerseyLove

Sponsored: I was given hotel accommodations, ground transportation, and meals from Caesars, Harrah’s, DJais, and D6 Surf Skimmer as compensation for writing about my trip to the Jersey Shore. I paid for my own conference ticket and travel expenses to the event.                   What’s that expression?...

The Musings from Me Family’s Hyundai Santa Fe Epic Playdate #epicplaydate #CGC

If I have said once, I have said a thousand times that my life is busy. My kids are busy. My husband is busy. We are all busy. From having children in three different schools to having a husband who is a school administrator at yet another school, our family calendar is overflowing with...

Sponsored: Planning Activities for Summer @Kelloggs Frosted Mini Wheats

This is a sponsored post, though all opinions are my own. I only need one word to describe the school year. Busy. BUSY. Very busy. Three children in three schools. Two with school bus service. One without. By necessity I was in a morning carpool, and several afternoon carpools or the non-bus-riding kid. Busy...

Wordless Wednesday: The Class Picnic

The 4th grade picnic is kid driven. No input is needed from mom or dad. Unlike other picnics where the teachers decide the format or the parent sign up to bring items, at the 4th grade picnic the kids are in charge of the food list. My son and his classmates decided what they...

Wordless Wednesday: A Good Day Well Spent

About 2 weeks ago, we celebrated my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. My sister and I were deep in planning mode from last summer onwards. We sifted through restaurants. Created the invitation. Pored over the guest list. Planned the menu. All under the nose of my parents. Yep, we did it…we pulled off a SURPRISE...

Holiday Gift Guide: Bake Up Sweet Treats with Baking Products from @Safeway [#Giveaway ends 12/24]

My kids LOVE to bake. They bake for birthdays, holidays, and just because. The older one bakes for friends at school. I don’t know how she carries a tray of cupcakes and her backpack and lunchbox, but she manages somehow. She likes sharing what she bakes with her friends. Two weekends ago, my son...

Holiday Gift Guide: What Do You Get for the Person Who Has Everything? @HickoryFarms #holidaygiftguide

Picture if you will a family room. There are two small couches. One desk chair. One recliner with a footstool. Two people are sitting in the family happily watching TV. Relaxing. Stretched out. Comfy. Enjoying the relative quiet. Feet up on the coffee table. There’s a patter of footsteps heard by the two people....

Holiday Gift Guide: Squeeze a Little Fun in Your Stocking with @GoGosqueeZ #holidaygiftguide [#Giveaway ends 12/20]

I was chatting with a friend about holiday traditions. I shared that my mother always put my gifts in a pillowcase at the end of my bed. How do I know this? Because I saw the photos! Don’t worry I had long since stopped believing. What is funny, though, is that my parents continued...
