5 Tips for getting Thanksgiving ready

Hey Cuties,

It is Thanksgiving Eve, is that even a thing? Do you have collards soaking in the sink? Is your bird in the fridge marinating in eleven herbs and spices? My Thanksgiving preparation is different than most I'm sure.  I like to refer myself as a new age gal with a twist. I do cook, because duh I have a family. However I'm not a gourmet cook or anything like that but I likes to eat. #FatSnacks.  Last year I tried my hand at preparing my first Thanksgiving meal and it was a hit. Now that I've crossed that item off my bucket list its back to bringing the beverages and flatware.  This year we're just showing up.

Macy’s Holiday Window Unveiling, DC

Hey Cuties,

The weekend is upon us; I imagine you are gearing up for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Have you planned out your menu? If you aren’t cooking have you decided on your travel arrangements? The kids only have school two days next week. That in and of itself means I need to prepare my nerves.  All this extended parent and kid time can be exhausting for all of us. To kick off the holiday season we hung out with the folks at Macy’s last weekend.

Breakthrough Junior Challenge: STEM Interview

Hey Cuties,

Today is hump day and that means we can see the weekend right over our shoulders. My son turned 11 yesterday and we did a little small celebration for him. He is a far cry from the baby boy I brought home from the hospital. He is in the midst of a major growth spurt and my pockets can't seem to keep up. He is almost as tall as me, his foot size has surpassed mine and his sixth grade homework is more that I can handle. WHY IS HOMEWORK SO COMPLICATED!

YouTube Creator Day D.C.

Hey Cuties,

How was the weekend? Mine was pretty good, we spent Saturday getting in the holiday mood with Macy's. Sunday I spent the day shopping for my kids that won't stop growing. No seriously, my son turns 11 tomorrow and he just isn't my little boy anymore.  The girl child is supposed to be three but she is more like sixty-three.

Miami #FatSnacks

Hey Cuties,

I'm back talking about one of my absolute loves #FatSnacks. Food, grub, la comida, aliments, sustenance, provisions, rations, three hots whatever you call it. Food is very near and dear to my heart as I frequently talk about it on the blog. In particular food with parents gives me the greatest job. This is part III, the final installment of the Miami series. You can catch up here Part I & Part II

Happy Birthday MimiCuteLips

Hey Cuties,

As promised this is part two of my three part Miami recap. The first part was the SOAR Retreat, that was the reason for my trip to Miami. This part is about the celebration that took place while we were there. On our third day {10.18.} I turned 36 years old so I extended my trip a bit to celebrate. You know I love all things Miami, I went earlier this year and shared all of the deliciousness that took place.
