Gluten Free Breakfast Ideas While on a Road Trip

Today I’m going to share two gluten free breakfast ideas on this blog and then two more on My Food Journey for a total of four ideas. Since going gluten free, it’s difficult for me to find breakfast foods that are gluten free even though some hotels offer free breakfast.  Typically those free breakfasts have waffles, cereals, and pastries with limited amounts of fruit.  Sometimes there is yogurt provided also. I’m primarily gluten free and dairy free/ lactose free so that makes it more difficult.  (I do eat some dairy.) All of these are for road trips not when you … Continue reading Gluten Free Breakfast Ideas While on a Road Trip

My Top Ten Places I Want to See Before I Die

I got a new book called “My Top Ten.”  It’s a journal with topics such as “My Top 10 Favorite Artists” or “My Top 10 People I Would Have Lunch With.”  I bought it to help with possible blog topics.

I’ve decided that every Friday I’m going to share a list from the journal.

Today ‘s Top 10 is My Top 10 Places I want to see before I die. Continue reading “My Top Ten Places I Want to See Before I Die”

Happy Birthday, Wee One!

It’s throwback Thursday. Today is the Wee One’s 12th birthday! When I was pregnant with the Wee One, the third trimester was just awful.  I had a lot of  preterm labor scares.  I went to the hospital 3 times prior to his actual birth because of false labor.  Once was by ambulance. I had been traveling between buildings that school year.  Right before leaving the middle school, I started having Braxton Hicks contractions.  I drank a bottle of water while driving between the buildings.  The contractions would not let up so once I got to the other building I mentioned … Continue reading Happy Birthday, Wee One!

Holland, Michigan – Sunday Night – The Town

Join me on Wednesdays for the Holland, Michigan photos.

Last July, Hubby and I decided to pick up the Imaginative One and his buddy from their DeMolay‘s Conclave.  If you have not heard about DeMolay, it’s a teenage boys’ Masonic organization.  Conclave is their state meeting.

We drove them from Conclave to Michigan for their Boy Scout Camp.  Hubby and I decided we were going to find somewhere in Michigan to spend the night.  We wanted to explore a new place.

Even though we only spent less than 24 hours in Holland, it was a town I won’t forget.

Jumping in the Pool – A Summer Tradition

One of the boys’ favorite activities in the summer is to play in our pool.  I rarely get in the pool with them.  Usually I’m taking photos of them jumping in.  I love capturing them while they are in the air.  They enjoy trying to make it look as though they are floating.

Random Photos From Our Thanksgiving Trip – The Way Back Home

I’m not including the these photos in the Universal/ Disney blog post series. Sometimes the trip back and forth to your destination can create some of the best memories.  That is certainly true for our trip in November. We left for our trip 10 minutes after I arrived home that Friday.  We watched the sunset […]

Mom’s First Time at Second Street Market

My mom had never been to Second Street Market.  I had a chiropractor appointment on the first.  I had not been to the market for a while so I thought that after the chiropractor appointment I would go down there for lunch.

I decided a Thursday afternoon close to the opening of the market would be the best time for my mom to experience the market for the first time.

She had a blast while there.   Continue reading “Mom’s First Time at Second Street Market”

The Boys’ Last Day of School Photo Shoot

May 31st was the boys’ last day of school.  My tradition is to take photos on the first and last day of school each year.

When the Wee One walked into the house, he informed us that he was going to relax the next day and then start cleaning the day after that.

Enjoy the photos. Continue reading “The Boys’ Last Day of School Photo Shoot”

Love in the Scottish Highlands

4. Book review!

Have you ever fallen in love with a book that you are willing to read over and over again?  A book that makes you want to travel to a foreign land just to see the sights that are mentioned.  A book that makes you meet your own Jamie.

I have read Outlander by Diana Gabaldon over and over again.  I’m currently listening to the book on Audible once again. Continue reading “Love in the Scottish Highlands”

Random Photos From Our Thanksgiving Trip – The Way Down

I’m not including the these photos in the Universal/ Disney blog post series. Sometimes the trip back and forth to your destination can create some of the best memories.  That is certainly true for our trip in November. We left for our trip 10 minutes after I arrived home that Friday.  We watched the sunset while on the road, got stuck in a traffic jam in Cincinnati, and then had my skid plate half fall off in Kentucky.  We had to stop at 3 different exits to try to fix it. Here are photos from the first part of our … Continue reading Random Photos From Our Thanksgiving Trip – The Way Down

Summer Reading Program

Every year, the boys sign up for the summer reading program.  We try to do as many of the programs as possible.  However with our schedule and the fact the boys are considered teens, they won’t be doing a lot of their programs this year.

The Imaginative One signed up on the first day of the program and was the first child to finish the first 8 hours of reading.  He did it withing 2 days of the program starting for the summer.  The librarian knows him so she did not doubt the fact he read 8 hours in 2 days.
