My Laundry Room’s Magnolia Makeover

I’m so happy to present our pretty new laundry room that we build with our own hands, and well, technically my dad’s hands too because he helped us hang the cabinets. It has been a labor of love and has taken some time to pull together, but it was pretty simple to execute even for … Continue reading My Laundry Room’s Magnolia Makeover

Hello Mr. Rabbit

We had lots of bunny rabbit shenanigans over the last week getting ready for Easter, and we didn't even have to leave Winter Garden. Last weekend Max did a great job with his first Easter egg hunt, even if he was a little bit bashful with the furry man of the hour. He gathered so … Continue reading Hello Mr. Rabbit

Daddy’s Tennis Clinic 🎾 (McEnroe is my Spirit Animal)

I got my husband tickets to a tennis pro series that was coming through town shortly after the new year as part of his Christmas present a few months ago. Matt grew up playing tennis, and it's a sport that he still loves watching and playing today. Part of the package  included a practice session actually … Continue reading Daddy’s Tennis Clinic 🎾 (McEnroe is my Spirit Animal)

My Mom’s Cranberry Relish

I am a food lover, maybe even a foodie, but I am definitely challenged in the kitchen.  Given that my husband is an amazing cook who will often take an entire afternoon to make a gourmet meal on the weekend, this hasn't helped me develop my skills any further. That being said, Thanksgiving is the … Continue reading My Mom’s Cranberry Relish

Halloween Decorating with a Little Monkey

I loved Walt Disney World’s Haunted Mansion ride for as long as I can remember, and any excuse to get dressed up is welcome in my book, so it’s only natural that Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Although Max was a few weeks old for Halloween last year, this is the first year … Continue reading Halloween Decorating with a Little Monkey

Full of Gratitude on Max’s First Birthday

I can hardly believe my little man Max is already a year old.  From the moment he was born, well, even before he was born, everyone told us to cherish the time, how time flies, and he will be a little kid in a mere blink of an eye.  I think we have cherished each and … Continue reading Full of Gratitude on Max’s First Birthday

Goat Cheese Cigars with Honey and Thyme

I am by no means gifted in the gastronomy department, and my husband is a wizard in the kitchen, so I'm the backup chef my my house. Being a full time working mom doesn't help in the time department either. That being said, those times when I decide to cook, I try to step up … Continue reading Goat Cheese Cigars with Honey and Thyme

Juice Cleanse

Leading into Labor Day weekend, my husband and I wrapped up another a 3-day juice cleanse. Although some people who have never tried a juice cleanse may think we are crazy, it's honestly not that hard. I mean, I definitely want to eat food while doing it from time to time, but your body totally adjusts and … Continue reading Juice Cleanse
