What is the History Behind St. Patrick’s Day?

March 17, also known as, St. Patrick’s Day.  If you didn’t put on green this morning, don’t be surprised if someone tries to pinch you or teases you that you didn’t wear any green today.  I remember wearing green as a child in order to avoid being teased or pinched at school.  However, there are a few other traditions that are popular on this Irish Holiday.  Some  of these traditions include: parades, leprechauns, clovers (shamrocks), the color green, and anything…

Christmas Breakfast Tradition: Monkey Bread

I love that our little family now has a few traditions throughout the year and this is one of them!  Monkey Bread.  I only make it one time a year; on Christmas morning and this year I am especially excited for it (probably bc I’m pregnant and have been craaaaving it since December 1st!)

Monkey Bread is prepared on Christmas Eve and left sitting out on the counter until morning.  Then, all you have to do when you wake is pop it in the oven, set a timer, and voila!  20 minutes…

The True Meaning of Christmas

As a kid, it's hard to see the big, wide world outside your own tiny bubble of existence.  (Heck, it's not easy even as an adult sometimes!)  That's why I've made it my mission to try to teach my kids to help out people in need.  And one of my favorite holiday traditions for our family is to help fulfill the Christmas wish list of a child in need.

For the past…

Countdown the Days Until Christmas Day With “Elf on the Shelf”

I was introduced to the "Elf on the Shelf" Christmas tradition last year when one of my friends was posting photos of her elf.  I hadn't ever heard of this tradition and it peaked my curiosity.  The Elf is Santa's helper and has fun while you are counting down the days until Christmas.  Learn more about the full story of the "Elf on the Shelf" Story.…

The New Year's Guinea Pig Attack

The older I get, the more I realize that New Year's Eve is totally overrated.  I mean, seriously, what's the point of getting all dolled up to spend a shit-ton of money to fight a bunch of annoying crowds to risk being hit by a drunk driver and to then be disappointed that the night wasn't nearly as fabulous as you'd hoped it would be?  That's why my husband and I made the executive decision many moons ago to just stay home and have our own little family party to ring in the new…

It is National S'Mores Day!

 

August 10 is National S’Mores Day. Thankfully, this “holiday” is an easy one to digest (pun intended in every way, because really, the last thing I need is another holiday to plan for).

Why celebrate S’mores? Tradition and pure yumminess. If there is anything that instantly elicits the thought of a summer camping vacation is has to be S’Mores. It’s an American campfire tradition that dates back to the 1920’s…

Keeping the Tradition Alive

http://projectsupermom.blogspot.com/2010/12/keeping-tradition-alive.html



I know, I know...what would Christmas be without dozens and dozens of homemade cookies? Or batch after batch of Chex mix? And, what about that beef stick in BBQ sauce or your special chocolate cake? It's just too much to ask to pass on all these goodies, just in the name of…

Teaching Your Kids How to Be Thankful

This time of the year, I always feel that it is a struggle to keep the focus on families and counting our blessings (opposed to what we want on our Xmas lists, who we're hosting for dinner,etc...)

This is something I'm trying at our house this year:

What *I* would teach at Cotillion

I returned from a conference recently and was reminded of the moment back in May where I (apparently) lost my senses and agreed to let my 12

year old attend Cotillion classes. Truth be told, I think they

were having a hard time filling the class, so they started calling down

the list. Our last name starts with "D".. we were doomed (no pun

intended).
Anyhow.. there it sat on my desk.. almost as complete as

a wedding invitation except this outfit would be a…

Detour from the Traditional

As I sit on my deck enjoying the warm and beautiful Easter sunshine, I have a confession to make. I don’t really like Easter.

It is not one of my favorite holidays.yes""> Growing up we always had Easter baskets and I remember getting

a new dress every year, dressing up in a pair of patent leather Mary Jane’s

with frilly white socks and going to church.…
