I received a new grill and accessories from STOK. All opinions are my own. 

We moved to a tiny town just outside of Louisville, Kentucky. The town is amazing. And the people are so friendly. We built our house in a new neighborhood and everyone moved into their houses in 2016. We were all new – so we wanted to make sure we had the chance to get to know our neighbors and make new friends in our hometown.

That’s how #GrillingFriday began. We love to grill. Since we are from Florida, we were used to grilling all the time. But in Kentucky – some days are just too cold to be outside. Once the kids got out of school, we started #GrillingFriday.

Every Friday night we would invite 1 or 2 families over for dinner. We would provide the meat and we would ask the other families to bring a side. You know I love dessert – so I would also use the night as a way to try out a new dessert.  Read more…


I am so excited about adding a new movie to our collection! With all the activities my kids have going on during the school year, we usually don’t get to see all the movies they want to see in the theater. So they are very excited about the release of The Boss Baby in July.
I heard so many great things about this movie so I know that my kids will really enjoy it. We may even do a family movie night and invite a few of our neighbors.

How to Pack Your Diaper Bag for a Beach Adventure

I don’t have babies in diapers anymore, but when I did we made sure to have Luvs Diapers on hand. With my wiggly-worms, it was a must that we have a dependable diaper. Stocking up on Luvs also meant we could save money on diapers and use that extra money towards a family get away. I’ve always been a thrifty shopper and with a big family, I had to find even more ways to save. Making the right diaper choice was just the beginning! Once we saved enough money we could go on a Summer adventure.

Once we saved enough money we could go on a Summer adventure. My favorite adventures always take place at the beach and when taking a trip you have to pack the diaper bag with everything you’ll need for the babies. How did I pack a diaper bag for a Summer adventure? Easy!

Diaper Bag Must-Haves for a Beach Adventure

  • Lots of high-SPF sunscreen for everyone in the family, especially the babies.
  • Juice and fluids for the family. You have to stay hydrated when you’re out in the sun!
  • A hat and sunglasses for everyone to get that extra sun protection.
  • Easy to eat snacks. Cut up fruit such as watermelon and cantaloupe, along with bite-sized yogurt bites and such make perfect beach day snacks.
  • Sand and water-friendly toys for the little one to play with and to keep them occupied during your excursion.
  • Extra bathing suit and clothes for the baby (and the family). It always pays to pack extra.
  • Wipes are an obvious choice, but it’s always to good to have them on your list so you don’t forget.
  • Diapers are a must. Don’t forget to pack extra Luvs so you won’t have to stop to buy more on your Summer adventure!

In addition to packing the diaper bag, we always bring extra beach towels and a little canopy or umbrella to block the sun even more. Pack a cooler and you’re set for Summer fun!

Strawberry Nachos

by Janell on May 25, 2017

I love strawberries. When we lived in Florida we had a huge strawberry festival. It was part of the Florida State Fair. You could enjoy the most amazing Strawberry Shortcakes!

Now that we live in Kentucky, strawberry season is a little later. So last week we went to a local farm and picked 11 pounds of strawberries. (Yes, I did share with my neighbor.) I love strawberry shortcake so we ate that a few times. But then I remembered when we lived in Mexico we had a friend that would make a marshmallow fluff fruit dip. I thought it would be such a fun way to enjoy all these strawberries! Read more…
