Since soccer is all the talk these days... I wanted to share the Dora DVD headed to stores on June 24th.   This looks to be a cute one and although it features a girl as the main character, Broxton actually enjoys this show!  Who doesn't love Boots?

If you were here yesterday, you were able to learn all about the different effortless meals options through Wal-Mart and Coca Cola right now... If you need to refresh your memory, head on over to check it out...  (BIG thanks to The Coca-Cola Company for providing compensation for this blog post.) I wanted to take the time today to tell you about our experience with them!  

Of course, the colder the better on our beverage of choice!  Coke!   Being in the south, you know we also have Mason Jars to drink out of! Really?  Is there anything besides Coke and Sweet Tea around here?  (Yes, we do drink water!)

Broxton actually chose the Chicken, Bacon, Ranch sandwich that he wanted to eat.  It was LOADED full and I cut it into 4ths for…

Being a mom is one of the best things in the world to me... Getting to see him learn and grow, absolutely amazing!  Summer is so fun for us, since there is no worry about having to get up and go to school, it is about enjoying being at home and as always, making memories! One thing I am not fond of?  Running from here to there and having to worry about what to cook for dinner. This summer started off a bit busy for us.  We had his preschool graduation, a big brother graduation, karate classes went to 2 times a week instead of 1 and he was still in baseball! So, although school was out, we still had places to go and things to do!  The last thing on my mind was running to/from karate and baseball while also thinking about cooki…

If you remember a post from a couple of weeks ago, I told you I was going to be surprising Broxton with a trip to Wizard World - Comic Con when it came to Atlanta...   He was so excited to go,as we took Marta down there and he was "excited to be on a train!"   If you follow me on INSTAGRAM, you saw some of the highlights of our day, but I wanted to share more with you guys!!!  
I was totally walking in blind, as I had NO CLUE what to expect, so it was going to be a fun adventure for us both!   When we first got to Comic Con, we walked in and already saw a few different types of people... Of course, some were dressed up, but no where near what I thought we would see.  Broxton already had in his mind that he wanted …

What is better than football?  How about football AND Charlie Brown!   We were sent the DVD  Touchdown Charlie Brown  for review and as soon as Broxton saw the case, he immediately had to yell out "FOOTBALL!"  followed by "Charlie Brown!"  finally followed up with " I want to watch that NOW, mom!"
Of course, I put it on and we laughed and had a great time enjoying a classic such as Snoopy and the gang! 
"Take to the filed as Peanuts score another all-new collection of hits.  It's the big homecoming game and Charlie Brown is in the spotlight at team kicker.  If that wasn't enough, he is also an escort for the homecoming queen and her court.  But when Charlie Brown finds out the homecomi…

I have mentioned before that I am a steward for our local Little Free Library... I was so happy to have the opportunity to work with them... and the big day is almost here!  This Saturday, June 21st at 1pm - We are doing the dedication and will be putting the books in there!
Before the dedication, I did want to take a minute to thank the people that helped me make this day possible:
My friend Alissa at Planet of the Apels.  She was the one who got me in touch with the correct people to make this day happen!
The BookWorm of Powder Springs.  This place is awesome...  It is a book store of new and used books... and they donated books to help get the library started and we are already working to make sure that we work together to…
