I've been asked what my process is for putting together a trip so I thought I would put together a quick reference guide to how I go about it and what resources I find myself using time and time again. It all starts with a main destination. My husband and I had a conversation years … Continue reading The Trip Planner
We just got back from a week in the RV for the kid's fall break, hence the delay in this week 4 update. I'll post a little about that trip later this month, but for now- back to the recap of our summer in Alaska! Day 22: We kicked off Week 4 of our travels … Continue reading Summer 2017 RVing Recap: Week 4
Day 15: While route planning the night before, we realized we were only a few hours from crossing into the Northwest Territories of Canada. This was a place we had not considered visiting before. We heard that the wildlife was rampant and that the drive alone was an experience! So we chose to "go on … Continue reading Summer 2017 RVing Recap: Week 3
When we started planning this trip, the thought of driving all the way up to Alaska was a bit intimidating. You hear all the rumors about the roads being so rough, they are nearly impossible to drive on at a speed greater than 20mph. About there being so few gas stations that you need to … Continue reading Summer 2017 RVing Recap: Week 2
As with any form of travel, prepping to leave is the hardest part! I always get anxiety that I am going to forget something important.

My two … Continue reading Summer 2017 RVing Recap: Week 1
I suck at blogging. I had big plans of documenting every moment of our two months of living on the road up to Alaska...a virtual diary of our adventures. I wanted to remember every detail. And here we are, nearly two months back home and I am still editing DAY 11 of our trip! Yikes! … Continue reading Summer Hangover
Earlier this year, we sold our family RV with the hopes of finding a better fit for our family of six. Making couches into beds and breaking down the dining table nightly gets old when you are living on the road for long periods of time and the kids want to be able to have … Continue reading RV Shopping
Welcome to our family blog! I've tried this blogging thing a few times in years past (I went ahead and imported those old posts on this site because I felt there were good party planning ideas on them, and I do plan on continuing to post party ideas. I also love sharing home inspiration photos … Continue reading Finding my Mom outlet
Last week I shared my daughter's Art Party details and I briefly mentioned that the previous year she had a Rainbow Pool Party so thought I would share some fun details from that party as well! As I said, I love a good theme and this one was so much fun because it involved color! … Continue reading Kid’s Birthday Parties: Rainbow Pool Party!
My oldest daughter just turned 7 last month and she is an artsy one! Pretty much the week after her 6th birthday (a Rainbow Pool Party) she had already decided she wanted to do an Art Party for her 7th. I love a good party theme and was thrilled with this one! It was one … Continue reading Kid’s Birthday Parties: ART Party!
