In short, you want to be able to eat in an establishment where you can relax and savor a delicious meal. Consider six qualities to look for in a first-rate family restaurant.

Most families appreciate restaurant servers who suggest items on the menu that they’ve tried and enjoyed. Also, they like servers who visit the table a reasonable amount of times throughout the meal to see if anyone needs a refill on a drink, dessert or another item on the menu. If a guest wants a special adjustment made to a meal or dish, a friendly server will be happy to convey that request to the chef.

Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic  Great Deal on Microsoft Surface Pro from the Microsoft Store + $500 Giveaway! As most of you know I made a huge decision 3 years ago. I decided to stay at home and homeschool my oldest daughter. She was not doing well in school socially and she needed a change. It was a hard time for us and academically she was excelling and was 3 grade levels above her age. But socially she hated school. It was a fight every morning as she would cry and cry for me to stay or to not make her go. I could not take it anymore and I decided to take the plunge. As I did my research the summer before her 4th grade year I soon discovered that to homeschool and run a blog I was most defiantly going to need to purchase a second computer. One for my daughter. Of course we researched SO many different computers and options. I wanted something that would be kid … [Read more...]

** I was provided with a copy of this title for the purpose of this review. However, my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way.   Say & Pray Devotions Review & Giveaway! My Thoughts! My baby girl just turned a year old! I can't believe that this year has already passed..but at the same time I am super happy that she is now at a stage where she is learning and growing and becoming really fun. That is why I have been reading more and more to her. She loves books and I love knowing that I am helping her build a good and strong vocabulary. Especially with books that help her learn about the items around her. On each page of Say & Pray Devotions there is a little part about all the gifts that God has made us. Like our bodies, the animals and more. It is so beautiful to be reminded about the gifts from God that we might take for granted. It has also reminded my older daughter about things that she needs to add to her prayers to Thank God for. To go … [Read more...]

This Halloween will be my baby girls 1st Halloween. I am so excited to see how she does with people in costume, how she likes the candy thing and just to see her experience all that goes with this fun Holiday. I am also excited to show off our matching Rag Doll costumes we got at Oriental Trading! They are so awesome and comfy!   This is the first year that I have received a costume from Oriental Trading. I was unsure what to expect and was excited to give the costumes a try. So..ok. Here is the low down. I am honestly in love with the quality and just how much came with each costume. Usually when I purchase a costume it has this awesome picture on the front but then you get to reading and the bag/picture lists items that is “Not Included”.

Oriental Trading for your Halloween Needs!

** I was provided with product for the purpose of this review. However my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way. Oriental Trading for your Halloween Needs! It's another year! Can you believe it! Some of you might remember my Oriental Trading post from last Halloween...or even the Halloween before that! I am obsessed with them and purchase from them ALL THE TIME. Especially around Holiday's like Halloween. I think that in this day in age it is safer to give kids toys and stickers vs. some of the candy's that might contain nuts and such. Also if I do give candy I want it to be something that they have never seen before. Something different! This year was no exception. I received some amazing toys and treats from Oriental Trading to hand out to the kiddos. I even scored 2 more Gnomes to add to my collection! Yippee! When my box of goodies arrived I could not wait to get it open and give everything a try. Of course I have to taste test the candy before I hand it … [Read more...]

DSCN6400done

  My Baby is 11 Months + Her Favorite Food is GERBER CEREAL! My baby girl is 11 months old today!! Honestly I can't believe that it is time to start planning her 1 year party! How can she be almost a year old already! Time goes too fast. I feel like we have been through so much this past year with her. One thing I have been happy to have by my side is a baby food company I can trust. One that I know wants the best for my child just like I do. Gerber is that company and they have been with me from the very beginning! As some of you might remember my baby girl was born at 9lbs 6oz but after she was born she lost a few pounds and had a hard time putting the weight back on. When she was 4 months old I was advised to start her on some infant cereals to help her learn to eat and hopefully start to put on a little more weight. Of course I turned to GERBER CEREALS because I knew they would be gentle enough for my babies tummy and I could easily mix them with my breast … [Read more...]

DSCN6173done

Hearty Homemade Yogurt Parfait for Baby Using Gerber Lil' Bits! My daughter is finally eating solid foods and enjoying them! I love watching her face every time she eats a new food. It is wonderful to see her eyes light up when she comes across tastes and textures that she likes and are new to her. Something else that is fun is seeing her want to enjoy the same foods that she see's me eating. I know that she is watching me and she is learning from me so I want to make sure I always show her and give her the best. One of my favorite meals to eat is Breakfast. Each morning my oldest daughter and I enjoy overnight oats with yogurt and fruit. I love how hearty it is as well as tasty. For a few weeks now my youngest has watched intently as my oldest and I enjoy our oats. She is constantly crying and reaching for our food. This got me to thinking....can I make her some of the same thing? I know that she can not chew steal cut oats yet but she can most defiantly have her baby approved … [Read more...]
