Parents and teachers, it’s that time of year again, back to school! Some of you are dreading it, others are anxious, and the kids are excited! You know what I get excited about? DEALS! I decided to snoop around online and make some calls to find the hottest deals in Knoxville to make your shopping day […]
One of my favorite parts of preparing for a new baby, whether it is my own or an expecting friend, is discovering all of the latest baby gear and gadgets. We just had our third child last month and leading up to the delivery, I had spent many third trimester sleepless nights researching and reading […]
I have 6,050 photos, 176 videos, and 290 kiddo selfies on my phone. They are all from this year. You either think I have a picture problem, or you’re a mom like me who loves taking pictures of her kids. I love having all of these great pictures of my precious littles, and I love […]
It simply doesn’t seem possible that school is going to be starting back in fewer than three weeks! But like it or not, here it comes!! I really couldn’t tell you if I’m so excited for all things fall and to be back on an actual school schedule, or if I just want to hide under […]
As a parent, especially a mother, I tend to overreact. I think sometimes it’s a learned reaction as my mother was the same way, but one of my sisters stays completely calm in situations that I would have completely freaked out about. So, maybe it’s not so much a learned response as it is a […]
It definitely doesn’t seem like it has been a decade since we took this picture at the ribbon cutting to celebrate the grand opening of Children’s Dentistry of Knoxville. We are so excited that next month we celebrate 10 years of caring for lots of kiddos in the area. We are so grateful for the […]
I just got home from a vacation, so writing this post is a little hard. I’m still in that whole vacation mode where I want to be lazy and relax, not sticking to a schedule. In just 17 days, however, school begins and life demands a better schedule and routine for both you and your […]
Cue the umbrellas and the fountain, the cheesy 90s hair styles, the oversized suites, and the clunky shoes! You know what opening scene I’m talking about. And if you don’t, you have missed out on one of the most inspiring sitcoms to ever exist. Friends was and is still to this day, the best TV […]
It was one of those unforgettable moments that stay with you forever. The Story Late in 2002, I was a senior in high school and on a date with a boy I thought was pretty into me. (Turns out he wasn’t, BUT I DIGRESS.) Sitting in the car at the end of the night, we […]
I must admit, I gave my husband so much flack for downloading Pokemon Go the second it was released. I rolled my eyes, called him a nerd, and heckled him every time he left the house to go “Catch ’em all.” Sure, I was just as nearly obsessed with the Sims and Rollercoaster Tycoon when […]
Who loves fast food and sit-down restaurants? Who anticipates the inevitable meltdown from at least one child at a restaurant? Who dreads seeing the bill? If any of these apply to you, keep reading! I have dubbed myself the “Copycat Queen” because I am obsessed with finding and coming up with copycat recipes from my […]
My Olivia is the girliest girl I have ever known. She loves to wear dresses that are big enough to fan out when she spins. She could never have enough jewelry and mani/pedis are already a favorite of hers. She already has the heart of a mom, taking care of others, wrapping her baby up […]
