Christmas Treats

Hello!  It’s getting colder and kind of rainy around here!  So it’s finally beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  Well…at least for this area of California.

So I love snacks and snacking, which is what this post is all about snack foods for Christmas!  Some are more traditional and others are more fun.  Either way, they are all delicious and ready to eat.  Enjoy!

Back to School Round Up

Hello!  I hope everyone is doing well.  It is unfortunately nearing the end of summer and that means that many people are going back to school.  Now, I am done with school, but because Mom is a teacher I feel like I am reliving the first day of school.  And there are lots of things that people do on the first day of school, but here are some of my favorite ideas.

Some of these are for parents, some are for kids, and some are for teachers.  So enjoy!

Hello everyone!  I hope everyone is surviving from the hot summer so far.  No, oh…sorry.  It’s so been so unbearably hot over here in California that I feel like I’m in a constant state of melting.  I’m writing this as a puddle in my living room.

Either way, I am doing a repost today of our first Top 10ish Blog Post.  This was our 10 favorite blog posts and we hope that you enjoy them as much as we do.  So please feel free to check out these posts and look at some of our other posts from the past!

Camping Round Up

Hello!  Is everyone out of school yet?  If so, hooray!  Time for Summer!  If not, I am so sorry.

One of the things my family does every year is go camping.  Mom even has two camping trips planned for this summer alone.  As I’ve gotten older, I haven’t enjoyed going as much.  But, I definitely enjoyed going as a kid and having fun at either the beach or the lake.  But I have put together a list of some things that you might enjoy for your next camping trip.

And at the end of the post, comment where your favorite place to go camping is.  Maybe I can check them out one day. 😉

Father’s Day Round Up

Hello!  How is everyone enjoying their summer so far?  Or are some of you still in school?  Sorry…I apologize.

Father’s Day is around the corner and if you are like me, I don’t have a gift for my dad yet.  So, as I was scouring the internet (aka Pinterest) for an awesome gift idea, I thought I would share some of my favorite ideas with you.

Enjoy!
