The Complete Guide To Pairing Candy With Wine, Beer, And Booze!

Now that you’re a real adult, with real responsibilities,  some of those responsibilities include taking the young ones trick-or-treating.

It’s funny how when we were kids we never realized what a pain schlepping from house to house was for our parents. All we cared about was mapping out the neighborhood and hitting as many of the good houses as we could before it was time for bed – all while gorging ourselves on sugar.

Now it’s your turn, and instead of dragging your parents from house to house, you’re the one being dragged along for the trick-or-treat escapades. It’s exhausting.

Even if you don’t really like candy all that much, let’s be honest, you’re going to dig into the kid’s bags the second they fall asleep. READ MORE

    A Mother’s Summer Bucket List

    Today when I was broadening my horizons about the world around me, otherwise known as browsing Facebook, I noticed one of my online friends posted a Summertime Bucket list.

    Have you ever seen one of these? They’re a list of ideas to spark a summer full of enjoyment and learning.

    They can be as ambitious as a trip abroad, as fun as a day at the zoo, or as simple as a campout in the backyard. Maybe there’s a series of books you would like to read as a family. You could try every flavor of ice cream at Baskin Robbins or Ben & Jerry’s. The goals’ budget and scope are less important than getting your family to set goals for the summer and accomplish each one. READ MORE
