Last weekend, I went with 3 friends to The Lodge at Woodloch, an all-inclusive spa resort located in eastern Pennsylvania.

I Tried Hello Fresh & Here’s What I Thought {Meal Subscription Box}

img_5853.jpeg

One of my New Year goals is to be better about meal planning and meal organization. I'm the first to admit I'm horribly disorganized when it comes to meal planning and cooking. Sometimes I just can't be bothered - looking up a meal, trying to organize my grocery list to make sure I get everything. I always forget somethingand I always end up taking … [Read more...]

Screen Shot 2015-12-09 at 12.24.36 PM

While I am NOT generally a fan of the cold weather or the snow, there is ONE and ONLY ONE redeeming thing about the wintertime in my opinion - Skiing! Somehow this cold weather girl is a fan. I married an avid skier so it's a good thing I am. And of course now my boys are very into it as well. We live in Pennsylvania. People are often … [Read more...]

Living in Philly, we're Jersey shore folks when we want to go to the beach. Hubby grew up going to Long Beach Island and we love visiting there and various other towns along the shore in New Jersey.

We've done a lot of CVS Gold Emblem snacking over the last couple of years. We first tried Gold Emblem when I started working with CVS and now it's like a staple in our house.

We've stayed at a few Disney resorts but after most recently staying at the Disney Beach Club, I think I now have a favorite!

The view couldn't be beat - here's a family shot of us - you can see the … [Read more...]
