If you were here yesterday, you read about us seeing Saltoriya at Beau Rivage in Biloxi. 
As I said, you can totally "do Biloxi" with kids... and The Beau makes that easy to happen!   Yes, they have an awesome casino floor - with a little of this and a little of that...  That is for the 21 and over crowd, but you need to know this...   They have a kids arcade as well!  It is open from like 10 am to 11 pm (somewhere around there, don't quote me on that.. and I am sure they change the hours based upon the season.)   But more that that, they have an awesome buffet that is sure to please the tastebuds of everyone in your party!  Since I knew we were headed there, I contacted them to see if we might be able to work toge…

Thinking Thursdays

Okay, so I used to do "Aloha Friday" but it seems that it has died down... I have random questions of things that run through my head and I am going to start asking a question each week...  Would love to hear your answers!!!!!   I would also love for you to join in with me... Ask a Question of your own - either here in the comments or on your blog (leave me a link so I can visit and answer)  If it seems that a couple of you start doing this with me, I will totally put up a linky, but for now, I just want to know your thoughts...
Today's Question -  Do you send Thank You notes?

My answer -
I try my best to always send them.  Meaning, we always write them. I actually just found one in my purse I meant to hand deliver... but it was never done... I will give it to them the next time I see them.  We especially make it a point to send Thank you notes when Broxton gets a birthday gift or something like that... It is always hand written and sent.  I feel if someone took the time to g…

Visit @BeauBiloxi and Check Out Their Latest Show #Saltoriya (UPDATED WITH NEW CLIP)

I am not sure about where you live, but around here, school started back this Monday... That is just so crazy to me, being that I have a birthday in the middle of August and we were NEVER in school for my birthday, to think that it now starts BEFORE my birthday is just crazy to me!!!
I love to have a little birthday celebration and we normally try to plan a trip to Biloxi to do just that.
We had a great time (like always) and I thought it would be nice to share a few things with you.
Several of my friends enjoy Biloxi as well, since it is only 5 and a half hours from Atlanta...   but most don't think about taking the kids...  Well, I do!!!
I love the Beau Rivage Hotel and Casino (I actually celebrated my 21st birthday at their "sister" resort, The Bellagio in Las Vegas...)  and Broxton enjoys "The Beau" as well!
They have a fabulous Show Room and put on several headliners throughout the year ... The Beach Boys are headed there in October... but one great th…

I received a Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner sample to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own. *** ALL PHOTOS BELONG TO JUMPIN BEANS BLOG.  ***
I was so excited to get an email saying I would be getting a Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner for review.  You can imagine the spills and stains from having a house full of boys...  Some are stains from when certain people don't take their shoes off when walking in the house.. others are spills from beverages / food...   Yes... even on "picnic nights" ON picnic blankets, food stains somehow manage to appear.    In the past, we would try and blot it up - clean it with some carpet cleaner which meant scrubbing away...  Let's be honest, I am not going to lug out…

You know how you hear the phrase, " Learn something new every day" and you question it?  Well, for me, I seem to learn more and more about IKEA each time I go there... The first time, we weren't aware of the kids play area... (Now we are VERY aware of it!)  Well, not too long ago, I was able to go and visit IKEA just in time for their kick off on the 2015 catalog.  Talk about learning great information!!!!

I am not going to go into a bunch of detail, as everyone needs to go and experience IKEA several times for themselves, but I did want to highlight a few of the really cool things I did learn!!!!

 One thing that was neat to me was seeing that you could order a custom closet... A really great part about that was …
