Thankful?

November brings hashtags such #thankful and #blessed. As cliché as that sounds, I really am both thankful and blessed. For you see, these 3 people make me count my lucky stars, each and every day.  They also drive me crazy 😉 but I would not trade this life of mine for anything in the world.

Picture Keeper Connect

CANNOT TAKE PHOTO

There is not enough available storage to take a photo. 

Does this message look familiar? Are you one of those photographers, momtogs, dads, selfie queens? I am! OOOPS!🤦 I average about 1500-2000 photos a month. YES, a month. Yes, on my cell phone. Don’t even ask how many are on my Nikon HA-HA! What do you do when this happens? Delete photos that you think are not necessary, duplicates, blurry ones, etc??? Continue to take photos only to come across this message again in a few days?! Yup, we’ve all done it. But now you don’t have to! Picture Keeper made it so simple to back up your photos and videos from your cell phone, tablet and even computers with a quick, portable USB that plugs right into your device. 😮

All Inclusive Family Resorts

Oh how I love to plan and go on vacations. Who doesn’t, right?! 😁

Over the past 10 years my husband and I have visited our fair share of all inclusive resorts and are always looking for the next best thing. So far there have only been a handful of resorts that we would visit again. The rest, while great, not amazing enough that we would go back. I am sharing our top all inclusive, family friendly Caribbean resorts.

Coding for kids

I always knew my daughter was curious and creative. From early on she was interested in how games work and how they come together. So for the past few years I have explored signing her up for coding camps but they were either too expensive or not for her age. When Kidloland approached me to test out their new Coding Games For Kids – Learn To Code With Play  [ad] I jumped at the chance. She is hooked!!

My cleaning schedule

Cleaning. UGH! No one really enjoys cleaning…or do they?

I consider myself a clean freak. You can even say I have borderline OCD. I think it may have been passed down from all of the women in my family. I grew up watching them always taking care of their homes and being proud of it. It gave them a sense of accomplishment if you will. I know the stigma around women who cook and clean is sometimes negative. We are looked at as old fashioned and without ambition. But I disagree. I worked full time until  my daughter was two and a half. She was in day care while I managed my career and home. But I was laid off and took that opportunity to expanded my family. So just because I am a stay at home mom now, does not mean I am no longer driven! I have ideas, I have plans, and I am constantly reinventing myself. All while being a housewife and a mom. I choose to do it all.

Cabin fever?

I love this time of year. We had a wonderful October and an even better Halloween. Every year my husbands company organizes a huge Halloween bash for the kiddos. Employees decorate three floors of office space just for the kids to come and do some trick or treating. It really is a blast and kids really look forward to it every year! It is usually held the week before Halloween, so kids really stock up on candy. You should see the donation pile!

A few of my favorite books📚

I am not an avid reader by any means but I do enjoy an occasional book. I also join a wonderful group of ladies every month or so for what we call a “book club.” Mainly they read books and I come for the wine 🍷. Actually, most of us really come for the wine. 😍

I am sharing a few of my favorites with you. I think if paired with a bottle of wine 😁 or a gift card, these would make great gifts as well!  🎁

Our Bone Cyst journey

Hello my sweet followers. Thank you for subscribing to my blog and following me!

As promised, today I will cover the topic of Bone Cysts in children.

But you might be asking yourself…What in the world is a bone cyst?

We sure did!

After a lot of research and countless restless nights, we had a bit more information. Still, not enough, but more than we knew before.

This is our Bone Cyst journey.
