Peach Cobbler- A Lesson in Failure

Peach Cobbler- A Lesson in Failure

Peaches! We have a beautiful farm near us who has a multitude of peaches, veggies and apples in the Fall! While we’re waiting on Apple Season, (Fastly approaching to my disdain. Don’t get me wrong, we LOVE apples. It just means Winter is coming and […]

A Lesson in Cherry Pitting!

A Lesson in Cherry Pitting!

Cherries! We love cherries! They were on sale at our grocery store so we bought up a bag. But, we never eat the whole thing, they go bad before we finish them. What to do? Make Cherry Pie!!! Pitting the cherries is the hard part, […]

Ahh Vacation

Ahh Vacation

Vacation is one of those things I NEED.

I need to get away, to have time to relax with my husband and family.

Seriously. If I could get paid to travel AND bring my husband and Evie with me, I’d do it in a heartbeat. Although leaving our dog behind might be a little hard.

My husband and I have been on a few cruises to mostly the Caribbean. We’ve visited Mexico, Dominican Republic, Aruba and the Bahamas. He’s been all over the States, I’ve only been to a few. I want to see SO MUCH MORE. Either way, we try to get some where every year, whether it be the beach or Disney World (HUGE Disney fans here!!)

We decided early on, Evie would take trips with us as well. It was a bit of a learning curve but not really too much of an adjustment. She’s been to a few states, Disney World and Aruba. She’s on her way to frequent flier miles (LOL not really, maybe one day!!)

 

 

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Punta Cana

We had a good time in Punta Cana with the fun people we met at the resort. But (maybe this is because I didn’t know I was pregnant at the time,) it wasn’t really one of my favorite places.

Somewhere in the Out Islands- Bahamas
Exuma-Bahamas

My husband and I stayed in Exuma for our honeymoon at Sandals Emerald Bay. I’d die to go back there. It was the most beautiful tropical island I have ever been to.  And that is mainly because of the tour we took through the islands. Seriously. I want to retire here.

*I am not in any way getting compensated for sharing this. I WISH!! I just loved it there so much!!

 

Cinderella Castle – Magic Kingdom

We LOVE Disney!! The magic, the food, all the things to see and do, and maybe even the drinks 😉

 

 

Where are your favorite places to go?

Any tips for traveling with Kids?

I hope to go back to Aruba next. There was so much I wanted to do there! (Stay tuned for a more detailed post on our trip!)

 

Who knows, another Disney trip may be on the horizon!

 

What’s Growing On? Tomato update!

What’s Growing On? Tomato update!

Ahh tomatoes. Our plants are huge but we have yet to see fully ripened tomatoes. We seriously can’t wait. Evie takes very good care of them, making sure they’re watered almost daily. I had to stake them with branches already because they’re getting huge and […]

Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe

Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe

Most of you know, or maybe you don’t, there was a story going around about a certain chocolate chip cookie recipe from Neiman Marcus. The short version of the story: a woman was lunching at Neiman Marcus and had the most amazing chocolate chip cookie, […]
