New Thanksgiving Traditions!

Thanksgiving..… It is interpreted in so many ways by so all kinds of families. Of course, there are the main traditions that most of us do EVERY year, but there are other traditions that are implemented into families as well. Most see it as a feast fest with all the Turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy, and a bunch of other foods anyone could ask for. Not only the food, but a time for family gathering, relatives come into town that you have not seen since last Thanksgiving. This is also time to give thanks for everything in life. With all that said, some of the biggest traditions for Thanksgiving have been watching the Macy’s Parade, of course FOOTBALL games, and let’s not forget BLACK FRIDAY shopping! You might be looking for something different this year, starting a new tradition with your family and kids. So, what are some...

Halloween Time

First off, HAPPY HALLOWEEN! This is such an exciting time, for kids and adults. I think adults enjoy this holiday just as much as the kids. Who doesn’t like dressing up and getting the adrenaline pumping from getting scared a bit. Each house you go to is decorated a little or a lot different than the last, there are a big variety of costumes and how they are made, and getting candy we all secretly indulge while everyone else is sleeping. Although we don’t want to indulge that candy that we dread getting because no one really likes it. That is why I am revealing to you, the verdict of the not cool candy survey.   Not cool candies: Parade says these candies are the worst to give out this year.

Take it from us, maternity pants work best!   Having said that, what is Turkey Day without spending hours tirelessly standing over a stove in anticipation for our delicious masterpieces to be done. You can smell it now, can’t you? Inadvertently, with many hours of cooking, also comes lots of heat, thus unfortunately causing unexpected fires.

Fall is Upon Us!

We Just Love Fall! The first day of autumn is tomorrow.  It’s time to pull the decorations down from the attic and decorate your home for the new season. You can also take this time to spruce up your home a bit with fall inspired colors.   Hanging a fall or Halloween themed wreath on your front door is a great way to spruce up your home for the fall. You can buy them at your local craft shows, craft store or make your own. Making your own wreath is a great way to get everyone in your home included in the design.   Painting your front door your favorite fall color will brighten up your front porch as well. A deep red will contrast nicely with most brick homes and give a pop of color. Be sure to check with your HOA prior to painting to make sure you can have a colored door.   Also,...
