How do you tailgate? Saturdays Down South #ThermoServ

Image
Saturday's down south.  There really is nothing like it.  Football season is a season all in its own and if you grew up in the south, you really know what I am talking about. Weddings are planned based upon the college football team you root for playing or not that weekend. When we got married, we had to look and see when UGA was playing AND when LSU was playing.  I am pretty sure some that came to our wedding had earbuds in listening to the games that were on and not our vows.  We had our wedding and reception, but it was all over in time for everyone to get back to the hotel, change and get down to the "after party" to watch LSU play that night.  I kid you not, it is serious around here.
You might have a room decorated in the team colors with artwork to match, you might have dishes that are just for game days.  Maybe you have your "game day" wardrobe that you have to make sure is clean and ready to go come Saturday morning.

Recipes and tips from Limoneira

Image
I have always loved lemon. The taste of it reminds me of growing up with my Nana.  The smell of lemon makes me think of clean.  We were recently sent a box of juicy lemons from Limoneira.  I did not realize how many recipes you could make with lemon, so today I get to share a few with you from Limoneira.  Enjoy!   FTC Compliant Review Policy:The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing.

A book, a message and a meal!

I am so excited to share with you two new books that we have recently added to our library.  You know how much we love books and with Savannah getting to the age where she is bringing me books to read to her, I know that we will continue on this journey as long as I can!   The two newest books for us are actually from a local Atlanta author.  They are not your everyday kids books, so make sure to keep reading this post to learn more!

The first book we read was Charlie's Crumbly Problem.  This book follows a chunk of cheese as he goes to school for the day.  The only problem is that he leaves a trail of cheese crumbs wherever he goes.  He is so upset by it, since some people are getting frustrated with him.  Just wait …

I shared with you a few Peppa Pig activities earlier, but I guess I should ask again, are you familiar with Peppa Pig and her brother George?
If you are, I am right there with you, if you aren't and you have younger children... get ready, Peppa Pig is headed your way!!!  I am honestly not sure how we were first introduced to Peppa and George, but we fell in love with them from the very first time.  Whenever we see Peppa is on "the telly" we have to stop and watch to see what they are up to.  Honestly, there is just something about them that we all love. Yes, Broxton will sit and watch Peppa Pig with Savannah and he looks for Peppa Pig books for her when we go to the library.  It cracks me up how little kids p…

Sixth year for @DennysDiner to partner with #NoKidHungry

Image
If you are anything like me, you see commercials and start wanting to go to that particular place, only to find out that there is not a location near you.  If it is an eating establishment, it is much worse than a store.  Stores mean you can normally shop online, ordering a meal, not so much!  That was the deal with us and Denny's until recently.  There is a Denny's heading south when we go visit family and there is a Denny's heading in the opposite direction. Near us? Nope, not a one!   FTC Compliant Review Policy:The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing.

I was fortunate to have the chance to treat the family to dinner at Denny's recently.  We had a day trip and made it a point to stop at Denny's on the way home.  I have to admit, I don't remember when I have eaten at a…

Do you have the right Academic Planner? @orderoochaos has them! AD

Are you getting back into the routine of school these days?  We have been in a little bit now, but I know others are still starting back. I did not realize there was such a wide start date across the USA for school.  I don't know about you, but around here... Life gets crazy.  Hectic.  Chaos.  I try and stay organized, but it doesn't always work.  How do you do it?

Broxton doesn't have a ton of homework, yet, but I know it is coming.  I see some of my friends talking about their kids having HOURS of homework - IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. What?  I don't get it.  I am so thankful we don't have that issue yet.  He has a little homework each night and then if he doesn't finish something from the day, (or doesn&#…
