Guess Who's Back???

Image
Whoa.  To say that 2020 started out as anything less than would be an understatement.  I mean, I just looked and saw that I have not blogged in quite a while.  Not that I have not wanted to, just because... well, LIFE. I am not going to bore you with what all has been going on here, but I did want to let you know that I am back and will try to get back into blogging more often.   I will tell you this - I planned to blog like normal, but then we had internet issues... As in my cell phone bill has been SKY HIGH because while I thought I was online ... I was using my data.  Add to it that we actually had to have them come out to repair issues for internet and cable...  Got that up and going... then more issues.  Then LIFE - then went to no internet... but I am back and ready.  Did you miss me?  I sure enough missed you!  I have been on Instagram still, so I wasn't completely off the grid! 
Stay with me, lots to catch up with from me and you all!


Walking for my mama #CancerSurvivor

Image
As some know... and some may just be learning...
My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer last year.
While it was 100 % something we did not want to hear, we were thankful / blessed that it was caught when it was.  She was able to start chemo (and she rang that bell back in October!)  After a very short break, she started radiation (and again... SHE RANG THAT BELL back in January.)
All of her family and friends are so very proud of her!!!! 
So - she rang the BELL and now we walk to tell the TALE.
She is a CANCER SURVIVOR!!!!!!!!

Hot Wheels Live in Albany, Georgia! #hosted

Image
Albany, Georgia was lucky enough to have Hot Wheels Live Monster Trucks this past weekend. Sadly, people complain that there is never anything to do in town.. but they have been bringing more and more events.   This was another family friendly event that people could enjoy!   We had a busy weekend, but made it a point to go and check it out.   We got to the event in time for the Crash Party and I am so glad we did!   Savannah has always had a fascination with Monster Trucks, so I was excited to see her expressions.  Broxton used to love them when he was younger, but you know...  He is 10 now and thinks he is grown...   So- let me tell you about our time!  (Side note, Savannah has decided that she is a HUGE fan of Christian - The Hot Wheels #1 driver... there will be a different post about him!  Stay tuned! )

Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live is heading to Albany, Georgia! #giveaway #hosted

If you follow me on social media, you know that I am all about #makingmemories with my kiddos.  I love my job, I love my friends... but family is what it is all about.  I have to admit, my hometown of Albany, Georgia doesn't really have much as far as things to do / events for my #makingmemories moments, but I can honestly say that they are trying to step it up! 
When I was younger, there were several events at the Civic Center, from concerts to sports and it was always a good time.  As I got older (and the Civic Center did, too) the number of events started to dwindle and Broxton even asked a few times why it just sat there deserted.  Now...  there are events coming and we need to get the community behind to support those that come and open up an invitation to others to check us out!!!   The next "family" event headed down is the HOT WHEELS MONSTER TRUCK in February.  I hope that as events head down to Albany that I have the opportunity to share with you a few of them. 

Gift the gift of #MakingMemories with @cfbhall #hosted #imarealfan

If your house is anything like mine, you have plenty of "things."  Why not change it up this year and give more "memories" or experiences?  We recently had the invitation to go see what all is going on at The College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta, Georgia.  The kids and I have been in the past and had a great time, so this time we wanted to invite the biggest College Football Fan we knew... my dad!   The kids were SO EXCITED to get to take him somewhere and it was a trip that they had been looking forward to.

Give a Ryan's World Gift Pack this season! #Review

Image
Ryan's World.  Yep, I said it!!!  Are you familiar with this kid?  Well,let me back up.. do you have a small child in your life?  Do they watch You Tube?  If so, you have probably heard of Ryan.  He has a channel and Savannah loves watching it.  She put Ryan's World Toys on her Christmas list and looking at  the kids in her class, she isn't the only one!  (I even noticed one had on a Ryan's World t-shirt at school!)  When I heard that Ryan's World now had a gift pack in collaboration with Colgate, I knew I would want to get one for her.  Lucky for her, we received one for review, so she got an early surprise this holiday season!

Christmas at the Rock Ranch #hosted

Image
If you have been following me on social media, you know that we have been to The Rock Ranch on several occasions and we always have a great time.  We love going to spend the day there.  We try to be the first to arrive (good parking! and more time there) and crazy enough, we seem to be the last ones to leave.  We have gone before Savannah was born, meaning Broxton and even an older brother... and of course now with the little princess of the family.  We were recently invited to visit and check out their "Country Christmas" and I was thankful that we did.  As a mama of 2 on a budget, I was wondering if it would be worth the money and time to go.  I mean, if you go for the DAY, it is great... but just to ride through a mile of lights and drive almost 2 hours to get there, I was not sure on that one!
