Breakfast at Garden Grill - Epcot - Walt Disney World - REVIEW


On our last trip to Disney World this past November, we had a chance to experience breakfast at the Garden Grill at Epcot. The Garden Grill is located on the upper floor of The Land Pavilion. The restaurant slowly rotates and provides views of the Living With The Land ride. The Garden Grill offers family-style dining and many of the fruits and vegetables served in the restaurant are grown in the Living With The Land greenhouses.

3D Deco Light from 3DLightFX

DISCLOSURE:  This is a sponsored post in conjunction with USFamilyGuide.com.  I will receive a free 3D Deco Light in exchange for this post and a future review.  All opinions are my own.

My younger kids are scared of the dark and like to sleep with a nightlight.  Right now, they use a somewhat broken one that my older kids used to have. The design part of it had broken off years ago, so basically it's just a nightlight bulb.

A few weeks ago, I was scrolling through my Instagram and saw a picture of a Minion nightlight that someone had gotten for their kids' room. I thought it was pretty cool and my 6-year-old son was on a Minions/Despicable Me kick, so I thought it would be perfect for him!

Happy New Year!


My last few weeks of December was busy, busy, busy! But, I'm back!

The kids are back to school today and I finally have some time to sit and blog!

How were your holidays? Mine was fun! I got a chance to catch up with my sister, who had moved back up to New York at the end of 2015. She had quit her job in Brooklyn and is considering moving back to the DC area, so I'm excited!

Christmas was a little somber. We spent time with both my side of the family and my husband's and that was nice. But, we found out that a family friend was recently diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. That came as a big shock to everyone.

As for resolutions, I usually reread what I wrote around this time the previous year. And as always, I didn't accomplish any of the goals that I had set for myself.

This year, I'd love to travel more. Last year, we had a great two-week visit to the Outer Banks. We also surprised the kids with a trip to HersheyPark and to Penn's Cave. And of course, we took our annual trip to Disney World! I'd love to be able to take the kids on more road trips this year!

I'd also like to get better at knitting and crochet. It would be nice to get to the point where I can open up a little Etsy shop and sell whatever I make. I'm hoping to tackle cable and fair isle knitting this winter.

As for the blog, again I still want to do a redesign and change the name. I need to narrow down what I want the focus to be on and go from there.

Do you set resolutions for yourself? What are your goals this year?

Crochet: Santa Countdown Pillow


It's hard to believe that there's less than two weeks until Christmas! Even though, Christmas is almost here, I had to put up a quick post about this Santa Countdown Pillow that I made. It's my first time crocheting something so elaborate. I've done hats and scarves and even some amigurumi dolls, but nothing like this.

I saw the pattern back in September when I was scrolling through my Facebook feed. It was newly released and on sale, so I bought it. It's designed by JoAnn Grimes Thompson of GrammyJo Lids. I saved it to my Ravelry and started right away.

Parragon December Book Buddies Box


DISCLOSURE: I received free books as part of the Parragon Book Buddies Program. All opinions are my own.

My kids range from age 3 to 12. Sometimes it's hard to find an activity that all of them can enjoy. So, we were pretty pleased with what came in our December Book Buddies Box from Parragon. As usual, the kids were super excited to open the box and see what was inside.
