9 Ways To Make Learning Fun For Your KidsFeatured

Today, our children are growing up in a different day and age then we were young. They are heavily influenced by peers and technology and unfortunately the innocent means at which we used as learning experiences are no longer available to our children. It’s important for us to remember that we are our children’s first teacher and by creating a fun learning environment at home it will influence your child to have a positive outlook on learning at school.

Some days my children are overwhelmed with homework. As a result, the last thing I want them to do after learning in school all day is to have a negative demeanor towards learning. This inspired me to think outside the box and really come up with some fun ways  to not only help my children find learning exciting but yours also.

My favorite fun opportunity to help my children learn is Continue reading

Texas Rennaissance Festival: An Awesome Sunday FundayFeatured

This post was sponsored by the Texas Renaissance Festival via US Family Guide. However, all opinions are my own.

I have been living in Texas for six years now. It seems like from the very start the one event that I annually hear so much about is the Texas Renaissance Festival. It’s been on my bucket list of things to do here in Texas. Fall is my favorite season. I love everything about it! To me, it’s the perfect time to nest and create fun memories with your family. Yesterday, we did just that as we headed to the  Texas Renaissance Festival for an interesting Sunday Funday.

35 Frightfully Fun Ideas To Help You Celebrate A Friday The 13th You Will Never ForgetFeatured

This year Friday the 13th falls in October! Quite frankly, it’s my favorite month to celebrate it in. It falls right in line with all of the other spooky Halloween celebrations that take place throughout the month of October. Who’s says that you can’t celebrate Halloween until it’s actually that day or the weekend of!?! I  sure didn’t! I’m a big fan of celebrating national holidays with family and friends, calling on every ounce of creativity to make sure my guests have an unforgettable time. That’s why I am so excited to be celebrating Friday the 13th with my family this year. In the past, I’ve done everything from girls night in’s to playdates.

This year, I’m going to celebrate with my family. Since, I’ve been in a low key mood lately we will stay in, watch scary movies, and maybe snuggle up under a Halloween throw blanket or wear cute little Halloween themed socks. I also see some Halloween inspired snacks in our future to indulge in during our movies.

The fact that it falls on a Friday for eternity makes guests smile because for most there is no school or work the next day! Adults can over indulge on spooky cocktails and the kids can stay up later playing with their friends at Boo Bash’s.Continue reading

Why You Should Schedule A One Hour Appointment With Your HusbandFeatured

So, I’m sure you are wondering why in the heck should I schedule a one hour appointment with my husband, right!?! “I see him everyday”, you’re thinking! “We text, we talk on the phone, we FaceTime, we go to sleep together at night for crying out loud!” You are probably accurate in these statements but are you truly getting the one-on-one time that a marriage needs to flourish?

Scheduling a one-on-one appoint with your husband doesn’t always have to be a negative thing. Sometimes when I tell KB I want to talk, he automatically think it’s in regards to something bad. No, this is not always the case! Some times I just want to share with him some of the new ideas I came up with. Maybe I want to tell him about some great opportunities the kids have. Often, I may just want to stare at my husband one-on-one with no distractions, no music, no television, no cell phones, no kids…just him and I. One hour a week with my husband, no distractions is not asking too much. In my opinion it’s not enough. But guess what? It’s just enough to keep your marriage and house hold functioning like a well oiled machine.

For example, I will tell KB something while we’re siting on the couch together. He’ll reply as if he was listening attentively. I’ll remind him about what I said in a few days and he’ll say you never told me that. You know why? Cause when I told him I was competing with ESPN!Continue reading

Monthly Intentions: OctoberFeatured

WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO HOLD YOURSELF ACCOUNTABLE?

SHARE YOUR INTENTIONS FOR ALL TO SEE!

Hi there! Thanks for joining me as we bid a farewell to the month of September. Hello October! Boy, did you roll around fast! I wouldn’t consider October to be my favorite month of the twelve but I must confess that it is a fun month and who doesn’t love fun, right!?!

Lately, I’ve been really big with brain dumping, goal setting, diving into my planner, calendaring and things of the such. However, I can’t say that I’ve stayed a hundred percent focused and made honest progress toward all of my goals. That’s why this month I decided to share my intentions for the month of October in hopes of holding myself accountable. I plan to do this monthly to see where I’ve been, where I’m at and where I’m headed.

The thing about Intentions are they are just that, intentions! Intention is defined as a thing intended; an aim or plan. Plans are not always set in stone but they do provide a foundation to walk toward your goals. As I take this journey, I will do my best and forgive myself where ever I fall short.Continue reading
