Festive Fridays: Enjoying a Warm Winter Day

While the groundhog said that we’d be looking at another 6 weeks of winter, the weather here in the Mid-Atlantic didn’t get the memo.

Heal Aging Skin with Vaseline Mature Skin

Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper. All opinions are our own. This is the year of 40. Until now, I haven’t been one to really dread a birthday. Sure, I’m well aware that I’m getting older but I’ve never really felt “old”. I’m not sure what it is about the number 40 that magically makes you […]

Festive Friday: Throwback Family Fun Night

Today’s Festive Friday is sponsored by Gorton’s Seafood. All opinions are our own. Nostalgia.

Festive Fridays: Movie Themed Birthday Party

Every year with my boys, the struggle is the same. Right after Christmas, we start the “what do you want to do for your birthdays” discussion. While they’ve chosen several different themes over the years, including some repeats, I have to say my favorite year was the year we did a movie party for my […]
