    The Morning Routine

    “When you wake up with excitement and create a purposeful, productive morning, you set yourself up to win the day.” – Hal Elrod I admit that I am not a morning person nor have I even been. It’s it not my favorite part of the day and for many years, I’ve scrambled to get the kids dressed and out of the house in time for school.  This has not only created stress for me but also for them and it’s not how I want to send them off to start their day. It was all getting to be too much so i decided to try a different approach which coincided…

    Howl-O-Ween at The Great Wolf Lodge

      We recently took a trip to The Great Wolf Lodge and we had a blast!! This was our first time visiting the Great Wolf Lodge-Williamsburg and let me say, it did not disappoint. The boys, now a little older, were super excited to go back especially for the Howl-O-Ween activities this month.   The Water Park: We arrived early with our swimsuits packed in a separate bag, but to our surprise and pleasure, the room was ready so we checked in and got settled. I think it took the boys a whopping 3 seconds to get into their swimsuits and down to the water park. I’m not sure what they loved…

    Who’s Ready for Some Football?

    For any Southerner reading this, or any football fan for that matter, you know what starts this weekend….(drumroll please)… College Football! YAY!   This is a big deal in our house. I grew up where college football was almost a religion and all activities centered around kickoff time on Saturday.  We look forward to this time of year as we cheer on our two teams: LSU (my alma mater) and Clemson (my fiancé’s team). Thank goodness these two teams don’t play each other this year as there might be some fightin’ words thrown about (all in good fun). But, in a few years they do and I will deal with that scenario when it happens. Go…

    It’s that time…Back to School

    It’s that time, folks. Time for the kiddos to head back to school!! Our schools are starting a little earlier this year, which I am very happy about. The kids area also happy that will get out a few days earlier this year as well. I asked my son if he was ready to go back to school and, to my amazement, he is READY! I think he just misses his friends to be honest. But, I think he (secretly) craves that routine and I know I do too. Our first day back is next Thursday and we completed, most of, the back to school shopping last night. I have…

    Hello world!

    Welcome to my blog, Pralines and Pixie Dust. I have to admit, there are a lot of really awesome blogs out there from fashion to food and everything in between. When I thought about creating this blog it came from a place of wanting to share what I know, my experiences, and my thoughts and ideas about the things that I enjoy. As for me, I have spent a lot of my career in healthcare which has resulted in me becoming a certified health coach. I am also a former Disney cast member which allowed me to gain invaluable insight into learning about the company as well as the parks.…
