Transitioning, Traveling, Tummy Troubles, and Training

Screen Shot 2017-04-23 at 8.37.46 AM

It feels like forever since I sat down just to write.  As I’m transitioning into a new stage of life yet again, writing is one of those things I look back on and wonder how in the world I used to fit it in. As the kids age, I find myself focused on them in a much more emotionally draining way. Babies and toddlers are a handful, of course, but I find myself reminiscing about changing diapers and persuading a 2-year-old to

Sharing Uganda

Screen Shot 2017-04-20 at 7.51.15 AM

I’m alive!! So sorry it’s taking me forever to get back to the blog. Thirty-six hours of continuous travel back and returning to work has been quite a challenge, but it was more than worth it! I don’t have much time right now. I’m actually headed to the office but I wanted to share some photos. I don’t know what I’d say about the trip yet anyway. I think I’m still digesting it. So while I gather my thoughts hopefully my

T – 4 Days Until Africa?!

I really couldn’t come up with a more creative title than that probably because I’m in shock. You guys may not remember when I hopped on an opportunity to travel to Uganda with friends, so I will recap… A friend of mine has a friend who’s currently working in Uganda. He invited people to come visit while he’s stationed there. I decided to join the group because, really, I may never get this opportunity again. Especially, for pretty much, the cost of a

Goodbye, Worry-Free Jamaica

Sunset Couple

Right now I’m on a flight to Baltimore from Jamaica. The past 4 days have been fabulous. The Husband and I, along with 2 other couples, stayed in Couples San Souci in Ocho Rios. San Souci is an all-inclusive, adult-only resort nestled into a coastal mountain with its own private beach area. This is the second time we’ve vacationed at this type of place (last year we were in Punta Cana) and I can say without a doubt, we are hooked. It’s a little too pricey for

Backpack Packed, Jamaica Bound

Jamaica Backpack

Last year my friend Jen booked an extended weekend at an adult-only all-inclusive in the Dominican Republic for her 40th birthday and invited her closest friends to come if they wanted. She picked the resort, the dates and then gave everyone her travel agent’s info to book on their own. The Husband and I joined her and it was a lot of firsts for us. First time in the Dominican Republic, first time at an all-inclusive and first time using a travel agent.

A Scale-less, Mirror-less, Computer-less Week at the Beach

20160710_0949061

Hey guys! I’m back into the swing of things after our do-as-much-laundry-as-humanly-possible week, aka the annual family beach vacation. Every year we hit up Seaside Heights for a week. It truly feels like a second home there, so much so The Husband and I have discussed the possibility of buying a beach house one day. Not that we can afford a beach house but we dream about it every time we’re there as I Zillow my way around town. One day. Maybe. If we

Our Road Trip To Montreal and Back the Long, Awesome Way

running in Montreal

Last Wednesday I packed the kids in a rental car and we embarked on this year’s Mother-Sons Adventure! Our before trip photo taken in the parking lot of the gas station. This is the 5th year I’ve traveled alone with children and I’ve learned that the only way to have fun is to act like one of them. I was declared winner of the jolly rancher blue tongue contest. Of course I still have to be the responsible one so

Our Disney Road Trip

20160402_disney28

If I was any sort of good travel blogger I would probably break this down into multiple posts focusing on different parts of my trip to provide tips and share my experience. This way I would actually have something to share between my travels. Then again, if I was any kind of travel blogger at all I would have traveled more since our Wyoming trip seven months ago. But, alas, I’m just a busy mom trying to take as many trips as possible on

7 Days, 6 Nights, 5 Bags, 4 States, 3 Cameras, 2 Kids, and 1 Awesome Vacation!

20150818_4572

This post is going to be a long one. You may want to grab a drink and put your feet up. Last year at this time I started planing an adventure in an area of the country I knew very little about. It was for our annual mother-son trip and the first where I would take both boys on a plane. As you can see someone was very excited. Evan is just about 4 and half years old and this was
