TBT: Beach Day!

In honor of #throwbackthursday I thought i'd share about a little adventure we had on Wednesday.

My Aunt and Uncle are staying in a little cottage on a local beach, so my sister, husband and two girls went over yesterday morning to visit for a little bit and go to the beach.  It was a short visit, because my husband had to work that afternoon, but we had a lot of fun.

Here's a little sneak peak into our morning at the beach.

Enjoy!


The Force Comes to Florida!!

Social media is buzzing with the news that a Star Wars run is coming to Florida!!! My husband and I aren't crunching numbers (yet) but we are definitely thinking we will try to run at least one of the events.

I mean,... Little Lady needs to go visit her pals!




Question of the day: Will you be trying to register on September 22?

Abuelita.

Remembering you always brings a smile to my face and I miss you. 







How I transitioned our daughter off the bottle in 3 days.

This is the story of how our family transitioned our oldest daughter off the bottle in three days. Our method may not work for everyone, but it's what worked for our family.

Background Story Right before my daughters first birthday I resigned from my position at work and became a full-time stay at home mom. I was getting ready to welcome baby number two in a few short months, and wanted to get into some routines before the baby was born. One of the routines I wanted was a bottle free 1 year old. 
I didn't want my oldest to be dependent on a bottle or a pacifier, and I didn't want to be washing bottles for two babies. 
Well, after months of trying every sippy cup created, and dropping the bottle before naps etc. I stopped, she wasn't ready, I was exhausted, we were approaching my due date and my husband had just accepted a new job (which would require us to move)... 
She kept the bottle.



18 Months.
At her 18 month check up, the pediatrician recommended we drop the bottle …

Weekend Recap: National Geocaching Day!

Happy Monday Friends!

How was your weekend? Our family had a great visit with my parents, and spent a good portion of the day Geocaching!

If you aren't familiar with Geocaching, it's basically a little treasure hunt with your GPS. I've been geocaching since 2006, when smart phones weren't in the hands of every person from 8 to 80.  You enter some coordinates into your gps and search for a small log, once there you sign the paper and then go into your geocaching website and log it there too! Back in the day, you needed a real hand held GPS and a notebook to jot down clues and information found on the website before you left on your adventure. Now, you can download apps on your phone and be on your way without any planning.

It goes up and down with popularity, and I even go through phases with it, BUT it's a lot of fun! My husband and I love it because it's something you can always do. If you have a day that you aren't sure what you want to do, geocaching is …
