Parragon October Book Buddies Box - REVIEW

Wednesday, October 19, 2016

DISCLOSURE: As a member of the Book Buddies program, I received free books from Parragon Books to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.

Halloween is only 12 short days away! On the days leading up to Halloween, I like to make Halloween-themed treats and do fun activities with the kids. We recently visited a local farm to do a corn maze and pick up pumpkins! Earlier this month, we received our October Book Buddies Box from Parragon and it went perfectly with the Halloween theme!

All the books this month were coloring books. It was nice that they each came with crayons and a place to keep them with the book. As always, my kids were super excited to open the Book Buddies Box!
Always so excited to open their Book Buddy Box!

I'm A Chick-Fil-A Mom! #ChickFilAMoms

Thursday, October 13, 2016

I'm happy to announce I've been selected to be on the Chick-Fil-A Mom Panel for 2016-2017. This will be my third year on the panel.

My family and I love Chick-Fil-A. It's our top go-to when we don't feel like cooking dinner. I swear the kids probably get more excited about Chick-Fil-A than any other dinner option. We all have our favorites from the menu. The waffle fries are popular with my younger kids while my older kids like the milkshakes and nuggets. My personal favorite are the Chick-N Minis and the Frosted Coffee!

Chick-N Minis!
As a member of the Chick-Fil-A Mom Panel, I'll post news about new menu items, services, and other fun things from Chick-Fil-A!

I'm not much of a cook. My husband does the majority of the cooking in the family. I'll bake, but he's the one who's making dinner almost every night. Since he does the cooking, he's the one that gets to plan out the meals. But, there are some nights that I'm really craving Asian food and take-out just isn't the same.

My family and I suffer from allergies. They're worse in the Spring and Fall.  Every day this week, my kids and I have been sneezing and sniffly. Just this morning, after walking my preschooler to school, I ended up sneezing for several minutes straight!

Visiting The Wright Brothers Memorial - Without The Kids!

Monday, October 3, 2016

During our annual trip to the Outer Banks this past summer, my husband and I had the chance to revisit the Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kill Devil Hills, NC. We had visited once before about 6 years ago with my then 5-year-old and 2-year-old. We didn't really get a good chance to look around at everything, since it was hot and the kids weren't really interested in reading all the little signs around. Plus, I was pregnant and not really feeling the walk up to the actual memorial. So, when my in-laws offered to watch the kids one night during the trip, my husband and I thought it would be fun to go to the Wright Brothers National Memorial before we went out to dinner.
