100 Days Smarter…

It’s the official 100th day of school today! Our kindergartener was tasked with decorating a tshirt with 100 items! 

We went with 100 Days Smarter and used  the candy–Smarties! Simple and fun while tying in patterns, shapes and an easy math problem! (Tip: there are 15 smarties in one packet)


Happy 100th Day! 

A Healthy & Super Easy Recipe (Caprese Flatbread)

Some nights I am on the go and have to get something on the table faster than I have the time for but it certainly helps when I can not only fix something super quick but on top of it–be super healthy too! 

Caprese Flatbread with basil pesto, tomatoes, mozzarella, topped with arugula and balsamic glaze.  

I found this delicious and healthy option of pre-made flatbread. Just pop in the oven for two minutes at 375 degrees before adding the toppings. 

After heating the flatbread for two minutes it’s time to add the toppings. I liberally spread the cheese. (Next time I will grab fresh mozzarella but in my haste I grabbed the quickest option) Add the basil pesto and tomatoes which I cut in half; Drizzle the balsamic glaze. Put in the oven for about 5 mins or until cheese melts. 

The final step: Add the arugula and serve!

Super easy, Super delicious and Super healthy! The kids loved it and I loved it because they are still getting their veggies in. 

Road Trippin… (Miami to Key West) 

What a day we had! Last night, we spent the night in Miami (our half way point) and we started out our day today looking forward to blue skies and turquoise waters! 

Our first stop was at Robbie’s in Islamodora Key, where we could feed the Tarpon fish. This little stop had everything from souvenir shopping, restaurants, ice cream shops and a place to just kick back and relax. 


After feeding the tarpons and dodging some massive pelicans who are on the prowl for the fish just as well, we grabbed some ice cream and my all-time favorite snow cones topped with sweetened condensed milk–Yum!



Back to the car after our super fun stop…


We made it! Dan and I first came to Key West 16 years ago on our 1 year anniversary and we have been back a few times with the kids as well but this time as they are older we are ready to do what we love doing as a family: explore! 

We had to go see the southern most point and grab a coconut ofcourse! 

           (This was Alaina’s favorite)

Next stop Mallory Square to watch the sunset! Everyday in Key West there is a sunset celebration where there are entertainers, live music and different souvenir stands as everyone countdowns the moments to the sunset.

This guy was entertaining when Dan and I first went 16 years ago!!!

       I could NOT do this sunset justice!

Then THIS happened!!! There was no waking her so we ate dinner at one of our more memorable restaurants we ate 16 years ago! Yes folks we had a moment while the other two colored and this one slept–the food never tasted more glorious! 

A fun day/night doing all family-friendly activities even in the Keys

                     See you next time! 


Road Trippin…(St. Pete to Sanibel Island)

And we are off! This time Dan, the girls and I are heading further south and like our previous summer road trip, we are hitting up some other hot spots along the way. 


Our first stop Sanibel Island. Sanibel is known for its shell beaches and wildlife refuges. More than half of the island is made up of wildlife refuges, the largest being J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge, which ofcourse we had to check out. 

             (Girls enjoying an art activity)

After exploring the Wildlife Refuge we set out to explore the beaches and did some shell hunting!

A very fun day exploring a new area for sure!  As I write this post, we are traveling through the Everglades–Alligator Alley, the stars are lighting the way and we are off to our mid-way point, Miami, before we continue on to Key West, Florida. 🌴
