A Weekend in New York City…and a Giveaway!

I love that I get to travel, and I especially love that I am going to get to give one of you a night away…either in New York City (oh, you SHOULD), or anywhere a Homewood Suites can be found. So, a huge thank you to Homewood Suites for the opportunity to see what your […]

Travel Essentials for Those On The Go

I travel. A LOT. In fact, I am rarely home anymore, which does make life difficult at times, but luckily, I have a great family, a support system, and I am able to get out of town and back without too many hiccups. Along the way, I have run across a few things that have […]

Running the Mudderella

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Mudderella. I received complimentary admission to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.” About one year ago, I started a new diet and exercise program. If you know me at all, you’ll know that giving […]

Winston Salem, NC…A Travel Gem

I am about to admit to you something that makes me SAD. I have lived less than 2 hours away from Winston Salem, NC my entire life.  Forever.  For months and months, I made the 1 hour, 48 minute drive twice a week, down to my doctor, in hopes of getting pregnant, finally. Twice a […]

Over 10 miles of terrain, and just under 20 scheduled obstacles, we were up against the weather as our first challenge […]

Cotton…Farm to Fabric

Cotton. We have all seen the commercials, heard the theme song.  The Fabric of Our Lives is a catchy little tune we all know, whether we admit it or not.  It really is our lives, like the song says…but until recently, I never really knew HOW MUCH.  Nor did I realize how much we take […]

The Road Trip…Tips and Tricks for Surviving

Last year, my family and I embarked on an epic road trip…cross country (and back) for three crazy weeks. Three weeks.  In a truck. I think we all have these grandiose ideas of hitting the road and seeing our country – I mean, there IS a lot to see, after all – and from the […]

Universal Orlando Theme Parks

Yes, parks. Parkkkssss. A lot of people don’t realize that Universal is made up of two separate but equally awesome theme parks – Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure.  It’s hard to want to do one without the other, so why? But the 2 Park Pass, and jump from park to park as […]
