    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…

    LEGOLAND Florida Resort

    Our trip to LEGOLAND Florida was like finding a diamond in the rough. I love this place and my son does too. Growing up, trips to Orlando meant Disney and Universal because we never ventured farther down 1-4 than WDW. But I highly suggest that you do and you will discover this gem of a park located about 30 min outside of Orlando in Winter Haven, FL. The park is reasonably priced, very clean, and colorful, embodying those Scandinavian qualities that I happen to love. You’ll be happy to know that you won’t be standing in line for hours for  rides or for food.  This park caters to families with small children ages 2-12. I…

    Mary Poppins Returns- Trailer

    “Winds in the east, there’s a mist coming in, like something is brewing, about to begin” ~ Bert (Mary Poppins). I just cannot wait for this movie!  Mary Poppins IS my favorite Disney movie and has been since I  was a child.  The orginal masterpiece, which earned 13 Academy Award nominations, will be hard to top but I’m sure Disney will add their bit of magic to this version and it will sparkle just like the original.  Mary Poppins Returns is set in Depression-era London where a now grown Jane and Michael Banks, along with his three children, have endured a personal loss. The always mysterious, yet charming Mary Poppins returns to help…

    Orange Chicken Pasta Salad

    Do your kids like pasta? Do your kids like fruit? How about fruit and pasta together? Combine refreshing fruits with pasta, chicken, and fresh veggies for a healthy, single serving salad that moms and kids will love. Today I’ve made this delicious and very easy Orange Chicken Pasta Salad for not only my lunch but my kids lunches as well. This recipe calls for grapes and oranges but you can substitute apples for the grapes and, as I have done this time around, substituted celery for spinach. It’s an easy, versatile salad to make but the key ingredient is the oranges which are both in the salad and in the…

    The process by which we digest food is very complex. It requires the coordination of many organs in our body to effectively break down and absorb nutrients from the food that we eat.
