7th Birthday Interview with Bella + FREE Birthday Interview Printable!

April 23, 2017

We celebrated Bella’s SEVENTH birthday this past Wednesday. My, how time flies. I created this blog when Bella was just 10 months old, and now she’s 7. Unreal. I saw this birthday interview floating around, and I thought it would be a clever way to treasure memories and for her to look back on in years to come. I plan to come back to these questions every year to see…


Bella = Ambassador of Peace for February!!

March 1, 2017

At Bella’s school, they give out an award every month called the “Ambassador of Peace” award. This award is given to one student from every class who has gone above and beyond with making good choices, resolving conflicts in peaceful ways, and practicing positive character skills. Bella was selected as the Ambassador of Peace for February, and we’re incredibly proud of her! You can read What I Love Most About…


What I Love the Most About My Daughter…

February 25, 2017

This review was made possible by iConnect and Luvs.  I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine.   Time spent with just my daughter is coming to an end in a few months. She’s been my one and only for over seven years. Although I will make sure to dedicate one-on-one time with her, it won’t be quite the same. My goal over…


What Bella Got for Christmas 2016

January 7, 2017

I know, I know. I’m late. It’s all good. Who doesn’t love pictures of kids opening their presents? . The night before Christmas, I gave her a few presents, one being this Movie Snack Kit that includes two boxes of M&M’s and three bags of popcorn. We put on Santa Clause and munched down on the snacks! Bella was feeling under the weather and didn’t want to partake in many…


HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE: EarZings Pierce-Free Earrings = PERFECT Option For My Daughter!

December 7, 2016

  Disclosure: I received product in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.   Bella is 6 years old and does not have her ears pierced. I’ve left the decision up to her since it’s her body, and she hasn’t brought it up…until she started first grade. She wanted earrings and thought they looked pretty, but didn’t want them pierced due to the thought of pain. We…


What Bella Got For Christmas!

January 13, 2016

I am ridiculously late with this post, but it’s better late than never.  On Christmas Eve, we normally exchange gifts to and from each other. Unfortunately, due to Bella being sick, she was only able to open two presents before drifting off to sleep. We just piled those presents in with Santa’s presents, but made sure that Bella read the tags on each present. Thankfully, she felt better by Christmas…


Christmas Recap: Bella Meets Santa Claus!

January 7, 2016

I know I am ridiculously late with posting this, but everyone in my household has been sick since before Christmas (and still are). I didn’t think we would make it to see Santa Claus, but we did…on Christmas Eve. I thought it would be more packed than it was, but we only waited approximately 5-10 minutes. I wasn’t close enough to hear her conversation with Santa, but I’m pretty sure…


Merry Christmas From My Family to Yours.

December 22, 2015

Christmas is here. Yes…to me, December = Christmas. I can’t believe that we’re already celebrating another Christmas. The years seem to be flying by at a pace faster than I can keep up. This is our first NYC Christmas, and that makes the holiday season even more special. Part of me misses having a Southern Christmas, but the other part of me is having a blast immersing myself in the…


First Week of Kindergarten!

September 11, 2015

Ahhh…the first day of Kindergarten. The day we all dread and look forward to. While I looked forward to getting a 7 hour break to work on my blog and complete household chores, I knew I would miss her terribly. Bella’s first day of Kindergarten was on Wednesday, for just 2 1/2 hours. Her school is approximately 12 blocks from our new house in NYC. We’re from suburban Tennessee and are…


May 2015 Disney World Vacation: Day One – Epcot [Part One]

June 11, 2015

I just returned home from my Disney World/Universal Studios vacation on Sunday, and I can’t wait to share my experience with y’all! When I originally booked this vacation, we were only going to do Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. Unfortunately, during my last trip in September, I didn’t get my money’s worth on our Epcot day due to extremely sore feet and legs. It got to the point where I…


Wordless Wednesday: Don’t Just Fly. Soar.

April 29, 2015

    It’s been quite some time since I did a Wordless Wednesday post, but what better time than now to start again! Bella’s favorite ride at Disney World is Dumbo. It’s been 7 months since our last trip, and she is still talking about her favorite flying elephant. Dumbo is such a classic and is a ride we consider a MUST DO when we visit WDW. Kids can take…


Halloween 2013 Recap

November 2, 2013

I realize that I’m two days late on posting my Halloween 2013 recap, but I’ve been very, very busy decorating for Christmas and am just now getting to it. Yes, I’m already getting my house ready for Christmas! I know, I know…Halloween JUST passed and Thanksgiving hasn’t even passed yet. However, I will be in New York City the first half of December, and I don’t want to rush to…
