POCONOS WINTER GETAWAY

My boys love the snow and are always begging us to take them anywhere that it snows! I love to visit the snow for a few days and play in it and then go home to our topical weather. I wanted to plan a snowy trip that we could all enjoy and I originally had my heart set on Canada…

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE

If you are reading this post you are probably already familiar with the sale but in case this is your…

WHAT TO PACK FOR YOUR BEACH VACATION

I’m currently having a Harry Potter Marathon with my boys since it was too windy for us to go on a bike ride tonight (they said we can only watch the first 3 since they haven’t finished the other books yet and they don’t want to spoil them) but I’ve been doing a little shopping for some of our upcoming…
