If you have a younger child in your home - or know of a younger child... Chances are that you are a little familiar with the cartoon, Super Why.  We have LOVED that show since we first saw it... As it promotes reading and education (something that I am very proud to encourage too!)  Well, recently we were able to work with Alpha-Bits cereal - who has the popular cartoon characters on their boxes of cereal- to start making our "footprint" in our local community.  You see, Alpha-Bits' can help in many ways ... You can use the letters as play time during the day to encourage reading and letter recognition.  You can also use it is as a fun tool to encourage the same as you are actually eating it too!   Did you know th…

A couple weeks ago, I was invited to a luncheon in town to learn about a new (to me) app called WAZE.  I was very excited to check it out... Especially since it was a "GPS" type app that would be great to share with Marc with him going to work at all hours.  We got there and were treated to an awesome lunch- thanks to 10th & Piedmont.  If you are ever in the area- you totally need to go and check them out... I had the chicken salad sandwich - AH-MAZ-ING!!!!    Thanks to WAZE, we got the coolest gift bags filled with great products too!     Now- on to WAZE.  I hate that I did not use the app headed there, but to be honest, I wanted to use my normal GPS to make sure I made it there on time.  So- I was able to le…

As a busy mom, I am still striving to give my little one a great breakfast.  You know you can do many different creations, but to be honest, he isn't a huge fan of me cooking breakfast (and that works for me, since that means I can catch a couple more ZZ's too!)  The latest we have been enjoying?  Fruit and cereal from Publix.  I tell you, Publix and I have a love / hate relationship!  I love going and finding the great deals... but I hate how much I end up buying!  You would be crazy to pass the deals up!  Luckily, I was able to go and shop to tell you the great deals at Publix with Cheerios...  (and a great way …

Around about this time last year, a friend and I took Broxton and his buddy to see Nuclear Cowboyz.  I was not really sure what to expect, but I was pumped full of energy from the time we entered until we left... and speaking of when we left - both boys were all about playing with their " small bikes" recreating the scenes that they had seen that day.  (Think hotwheel/matchbox bikes.. not their bikes!)   Anyways, this was so fun and exciting that we have been anxiously awaiting the return of Nuclear Cowboyz back to the Atlanta area -- and they will be here soon!!!!    (April 26 and April 27)
 The highly acclaimed 2014 Nuclear Cowboyz® tour is an affordable family-friendly choreographed freestyle motocross (FMX) produ…

Living in Atlanta has its advantages - one being that there is always something cool going on, or at least coming our way soon.  The latest to head our way?  Extreme Dinosaurs!  It is in Atlantic Station - where the Titanic exhibit was, right next to the Bodies Exhibit.  To be honest, being that I am not really familiar with Atlantic Station, I was not sure where that was and was thinking it was one of those "under the tent" things... but actually it is IN Atlantic Station. On the top floor.  
Anyways, we got to go for a little "sneak peek" right before it opened to the public, so it was not busy and we sort of had "run" of the place.  (That was neat and Broxton was able to really take it all in…
