nashville shores review

With a heat index flirting with the high 90s today in Nashville, summer is officially here! It is HOT out there! So what’s the best way to cool down on a hot summer day? Get in the water of course! And for a local girl like me, there is one place that all the kids know for fun in the sun, and that’s Nashville ShoresWe try to go at least once every year and this year was special because we had family come into town. We knew we had to take them to Nashville Shores for some lazy river relaxing, water slide riding, and wave pool fun!  [Read more…]

How To Make Tissue Paper Flowers

Ya’ll….it’s hot outside. Like, 95 degrees with enough humidity to choke on kind of hot. So what’s a mom to do when she can’t let her kids play outside for too long? She crafts of course! I’m always down to break out the craft box and get a little creative on a hot summer day, how about you? And perfect timing too, we have a party to help set up next weekend, so we thought it would be fun to try our hand at making some homemade decorations. Making your own Tissue Paper Flowers is a lot easier than you might think, and they look adorable. You can make them as small or as big as you want them! Let’s check out how it’s done: [Read more…]

At 2:30pm today it will be the official start of summer in our home! It’s my favorite time of year. As a WAHM I get the luxury of spending the summer hanging out with my daughter. This means days of playing at the park, staying up late to play Mario Kart together, and making lunches together. This also means that my usual lunch of peanut butter and crackers just isn’t going to cut it. So I’ve started meal planning and thinking of things that are quick, easy, and that we will both like.  [Read more…]

Simple Flower Crown

It’s almost summer ya’ll! May is a fun month around my house. It’s the end of school, my daughters birthday, and the Renascence festival. We love going to the Renascence festival every year and my daughter always dresses up. This year we found an awesome princess dress for like $20 at Cracker Barrel for her to wear, but she said that every princess needed a crown. Now mind you, she said this 2 days before we were scheduled to go, so we had to get a little creative. You know I love a good DIY project, so I needed to learn how to make a simple flower crown in a hurry! And so I did, AND it only cost $3/each to make. When you make your own flower crown you can customize it any way you want and it’s perfect for dress up, play time, flower girls, or medieval princesses! [Read more…]

Strawberry With Goat Cheese And Basil Bruschetta Recipe

It’s strawberry season down here in Tennessee ya’ll! Nothing says summer like a ripe red strawberry on a hot day if you ask me! I’m lucky to live in an area surrounded by farm land. We have plenty of fresh fruit, farmers markets, and something my family and I love to do every summer, a strawberry patch! It is so fun to head to the strawberry patch and pick out some fresh strawberries first thing in the morning. Lucky for us our patch also happens to be on a pig farm, so we can pick up some fresh bacon and sausage as well. Which means after our visit we go home and make a yummy and super fresh breakfast! But there is one tiny downside. When you have a daughter that loves picking the strawberries, you end up with 4 pounds of strawberries. So you have to get a little creative in how you are going to eat all those strawberries before they go bad. But don’t you fret! There are So many ways to eat strawberries. Today I wanted to show you one of my favorite ways, my Strawberry with goat cheese and basil Bruschetta! It’s SO good you guys!  [Read more…]
