What to Watch Now (and Where to Find it)

Whether working from home or just staying in more due to the Coronavirus and ensuing shutdowns and social distancing (which I hope you're doing so we can all be done at some point!), relaxing with the family and watching something together or hiding in your closet on your phone trying to get a five minute [...]

Book Review: Shark Club

Shark Club is a delightful and informative read! With an up close look at sharks and a peek into the world of those who care for them, this book reveals a community (and it’s rival) that I knew little about. All of this information is woven into the plot seamlessly. The plot has great flow [...]

Book Review: The Bookish Life of Nina Hill

Abbi Waxman may just be my favorite new-to-me author this year. Each of her novels, including this latest release, has a thoroughly developed cast of likable characters. I love delving into their world, and this one is just as exceptional as the last two. In fact, it’s the same world with new characters. It’s so [...]

Book Review: The Dream Daughter

Diane Chamberlain’s Dream Daughter is a gripping novel that examines family and sacrifice. I’d seen it recommended by another author I adore, and added it to my list without even reading the summary! The first half of this novel is so fun to read. Witty characters, an intriguing plot, and well written to boot equals [...]

Book Review: The Alice Network

Every now and then an exceptionally special book comes along, and it sweeps me off my feet in a whirlwind of perfectly described settings, enchanting dialogue, and a plot that keeps me on my toes. The Alice Network is a gorgeous treat of a novel, filled with historical accuracy and the well developed characters to [...]

Costco Street Tacos Kit Review

My deep love for tacos runs deep and fierce. Since I also love Costco, when I heard the rumors they were selling street taco kits I knew I had to try it. Confession: I've never officially had street tacos. I come from a Tex-Mex background, and those preferences will flavor my review. We checked if [...]

Toy Story 4 Movie Review

Never fear, there are no spoilers here! Pixar's highly anticipated sequel, Toy Story 4, comes to theaters today! When I looked up showtimes last weekend, I discovered there were a few showings at select theaters the night before the release. So naturally I began plotting, set up a babysitter, and the hubs and I had a date [...]

Georgia Aquarium Review

Traveling isn't just about the destination, right? We're supposed to enjoy the journey too, but how do you go about that when two little monkeys in the back seat keep asking the dreaded, "are we there yet?" The key to enjoying the journey while traveling with kids is to plan fun activities into the travel [...]

Why you should visit Anakeesta

Anakeesta is a mountaintop oasis in the Smoky Mountains. With a chondola (chair lift style) ride up and down, a canopy tree walk, a restaurant, zip lining, shops, and nature walk, visiting Anakeesta is an adventure from start to finish. Anakeesta is Cherokee for place of high ground. It's cost inclusive, with only zip lining, [...]

Summer Love it List

Summer is almost here! While I'm looking forward to a break from the insanely early wake up time set forth by elementary schools, I'm also a little nervous about my house turning into chaos. Here's what I'm loving now, what I can't wait to read, and what will hopefully save my sanity when the children [...]
