Florida Fun!

Last week the family and I was away on vacation. It was definitely a much needed vacation. This week I'm struggling to get my groove back on so bare with me.

Johnny fights me every chance I get so I … [Read more...]

T. J. Maxx & Marshalls Event in Boston

Last Wednesday I took off for Boston for a TJ Maxx & Marshalls Event. Since I live in Western, MA I decided to drive as it would be faster then flying.

Spending The Day In Boston With The Kids! #77kids Do Good Day

Yesterday was 'Do Good Day' brought to you by 77kids by American Eagle and The Motherhood. A group of bloggers including myself were to do something to bring a smile to others.

For the past three years he has told us when he's older he's going to college in FL and becoming a marine biologist. We knew part of encouraging them is too make him aware of all we can and by bringing him to the Mystic … [Read more...]
