St. Patrick’s Day Craft: Leprechaun Wreath

Back in October 2013, I bought a wreath form, covered it in yarn, and created my Halloween wreath. Since then, it has been a Thanksgiving wreath and a Christmas wreath. Now, I have turned it into an adorable Leprechaun wreath to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Each transformation has cost around $5.00. The Leprechaun wreath cost a little more than that because I chose a more expensive yarn for the Continue Reading

Orlando Stroller Rentals Makes Travel Easier – Review

You are taking your family to Disney World - or maybe Universal Studios or any of the other great recreation options in Orlando, FL. The hotel is booked, the tickets purchased – all that’s left is to pack. That seems simple, right? Well, with kids, it never is. You need extra changes of clothes, diapers, sippy cups, bottles, pacifiers, toys, books… and who knows what else. But, you’ve done it, Continue Reading

Disney Princess Half Marathon

Disney Princess Half Marathon - I'm a Finisher! I did it! I wasn't sure that I could, but with the support of my family and my friend, Amynah, I finished the 2014 Disney Princess Half Marathon. I'm pretty proud of this accomplishment considering that less than a month ago, I was told by my doctor that a bone in my foot (a metatarsal) had died and was, in his words, "sitting in my foot Continue Reading

Disney Princess Half Marathon, Here I Come!

It has been seven months since I signed up for the Disney Princess half marathon. Back then, it seemed like the race was far, far in the future. Now, it is just a few days away. A lot has changed since I signed up. Back then, I planned to train with a walk/run interval program with a goal to run more miles in one race than I ever had before. Unfortunately, after multiple stress Continue Reading

Ice, Snow, Earthquake – What’s Next, Locusts? Frogs?

When mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy. That's what my mom always said. Turns out, Mother Nature ain't happy right now - at least that's how it feels here in metro-Atlanta. On Tuesday, snow and ice started coming down in the metro-Atlanta area. It lasted for 2 1/2 days. The icy roads made going out impossible, so we all holed up at home for a few days. On Friday, despite temperatures Continue Reading

The Ice is Melting on Valentine’s Day

We survived Winter Storm Pax! Actually, I feel kind of silly writing that - why do we need to name every single weather event? We were snowed/iced in for two days. Thankfully, we did not lose power - however, many Atlantans did. I also know that many others up the east coast are dealing with the storm now. To all of my readers dealing with horrible winter weather - please stay safe and Continue Reading
