What Is Kings Island's Peanuts Celebration?!

Saturday the boys and I got a VIP first look at the New Kings Island Peanuts Celebration. It was A BLAST! The boys were smiling from ear to ear. Derrek and I got to re-live our teenage years. We spent sooo much time at Kings Island together. It has a special place in our hearts and we love sharing it with the kids. They absolutely love Kings Island and everything they had planned for their Peanuts Celebration!

So, what is The Peanuts Celebration?

Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers


Last week the boys, Derrek, and I headed to Freddy’s for dinner. We were so excited to see Layla of @laylaliving and Heather of @foodhussy! We were invited to the Amelia location to learn about the restaurant and a new surprise coming to the menu. The cat is out of the bag now, or shall I say the curds are out….WHITE CHEDDAR CHEESE CURDS! Now, I’ve never heard of cheese curds before this dinner. We ordered them and fell in love! They were like little perfect, fried cheese balls! So you can’t go wrong with fried cheese…I highly suggest you get them next time you head to Freddy’s!

Coming Soon: Alexander's Market And Deli

A few weeks back I was invited to dinner at a new deli in Hamilton. Jax and I hopped in the car and headed over after work. I’m not too familiar with Hamilton, so this area was all new to me. The location of this resturant is beautiful! It’s like a mini-downtown Cincinnati! I will be back for more Alexander’s and to take blog photos (the streets are perfect!)

I Tried It: TAO Float Loft

A few weeks back we celebrated spring break in Cincinnati (rain everyday). It was really chill and we made no plans besides speech therapy and dentists appointments. We did lots of reading, snuggling, movie watching, and board game playing. I am so blessed that my boys absolutely adore each other, but once being together hit the 72 hours straight mark, things got a little dicey. I decided to schedule myself  a mom time out, aka a float at TAO Float Loft.

JUNKLESS

This family loves food, who knew? We are are also always on the go and looking for snacks we can pack while out and about. I don’t like to compromise our health for convenience of a snack, but it is a hard find!

Weekend Getaway To Indy

Two weekends ago Derrek and I took the boys on a road trip. Derrek had been planning a little day trip for us to go to the Outdoor, Travel and Boat Expo in Indy. I typically like to take things to the next level so as soon as he told me he was planning a day trip, I was thinking over night trip. I googled some places to stay and not much stood out to me. Last minute, I was on Instagram and noticed one of my favorite Indy bloggers to follow Kathleen Post (click to follow her, she’s adorable!) shared her stay at Iron Works hotel. Her photos of this hotel gave me all the feels. After seeing the decor and visiting Iron Works website, I knew we had to stay.

Our Favorite Things: Children's Books

We love books. It’s a love passed down from my mom. We thought it would be nice to share our favorite children’s books with you all. I say our favorites because these are genuinely books I don’t mind reading over and over. Now that Trevor is reading on his own, I do get off the hook a little bit. He loves reading to Jax, and I love listening to him reading to his brother.
