Summer, Please Don’t Go!


Summer is almost ending for us. I just realized my kids go back to school full-time in four days!! Eeshk! I am so not prepared! After having more than a year long of “Covid Lockdown Vacation” we are very rusty when it comes to planning the new school year out. My youngest will be going back to in-person learning full time, while my eldest, who actually flourished academically throughout his lockdown education, will continue on with Hybrid Learning (2 1/2 days on campus, 2 1/2 days at home). It was a compromise because I am so ready for my kids to get out of the house and have a normal school routine again, but I also want to consider the needs of my child.

The “Amazon Dress” Review

Hey Lovelies!

Are any of you out there avid Amazon shoppers? It’s pretty much a given that since Amazon has everything under the sun that you could possibly shop for that there is a good chance you have bought at least one item from there. For me, Amazon is probably the #1 online site that I most frequently pore over and buy from–Wait…come to think of it, it may be a tie between Amazon and Etsy as one of the most frequented shopping sites I regularly peruse.

Do any of you have a “collecting” hobby? For as long as I can remember, I had a thing for collecting stuff. It started with stickers. Man, I loved stickers as a kid! I had this acrylic Sanrio bear box that I would keep all my stickers in. Then, (back when Snail Mail was a considerable means for communication) I would regularly write letters and trade stickers back and forth with my cousin and sister. We did this for years, I remember, and it’s become such a fond childhood memory for me!

Winter Road Trip Pt. 1: Kanab, UT/Rock Springs, WY/Keystone, SD

In my family, our times traveling or on vacation are usually spent in the summer/warm months. I’ve always wanted to do a “cold weather” vacation, so this time around we planned it just so. The hubs and I did a little research on what could be a nice winter road trip and decided on driving from home and all the way up to South Dakota—Keystone, specifically—to see Mt. Rushmore.

These Are a Few of Z’s Favorite Things…

Holiday Greetings, everyone! Can you believe there are only 5 more days until Christmas?! This month has absolutely flashed by for me! And I’m not going to lie. With all the things that have happened throughout this crazy, crazy year, it’s been quite the challenge getting into the festive holiday mood. BUT! Even though our holiday situation this year will be a little different, Jesus is still and forever will be the focus of Christmas for me, so I’ve vowed to be more grateful, more thankful, more joyful, more everything!
