Over 30 Mac & Cheese Recipes

Macaroni & Cheese is a staple in our house. Personally, I could eat it 3 meals a day, every day. The boys love it as much as Mommy does, so we’re always looking for ways to put a new spin on our favorite dish.

But… there are plenty of things you can do on rainy days in Myrtle Beach!

JBF Middletown/Dover Fall Sale

I received a gift certificate to shop the sale. All opinions are my mother’s.

We’re on our way to Myrtle Beach, so Mommom hit up the Just Between Friends sale for us today in Middletown, DE! Yes, I’m in the car on the laptop and will post this when we find wi-fi. Hey… what else am I supposed to do while in the car for 10 hours?



At the JBF sale this weekend, you’ll be able to find everything from car seats and strollers to juniors and maternity! If your kid needs it, chances are you can find it here!

My mom took my (much younger) step-sister to help her find some deals for the boys and some for herself too.

If you haven’t been to a large consignment sale before, it can definitely seem overwhelming. Lucky for us, mom is not a newb! She knows to throw everything in the bag if you might possibly want to purchase it and look through later to re-evaluate your shopping bag.

Road Trip Activities & Tips for Little Ones

Tomorrow morning we’ll be driving to Surfside Beach in South Carolina for our family vacation! From our house, it’s about a 9 hour drive straight through. With the boys, we expect it to take about 12 due to stops. For a 3 year old and a 10 month old, that’s a really long and boring drive. For the parents, it’s not much better. We’ll have the dvd player with us, but want other ways of keeping the boys happy along the way.
