New Earth Fare Open in Morrisville (GIVEAWAY)

Earth Fare Morrisville NC

I’m going to be honest here. When I first got the invite to check out the new Earth Fare store at Park West Village, I almost declined. There’s a store about four miles from me and I don’t love it. It’s dark and uninviting, which is weird to me for a store focused on health… [Read More]

SNOWED IN – reporting live from the trenches

snow day in nc

Today is Day 3 of Raleigh’s Snowmeggedon. We started off on a much better foot than yesterday. Yesterday we had lots of whining and screaming before it was even 9 a.m. Yesterday I understood why some animals eat their young. Today the kids are just enthralled with the 5 inches of snow we have. We are lucky… [Read More]

Harlem Globetrotters return to PNC Arena!

World Tour

A few years ago, Jason and I took Mr A to see the Harlem Globetrotters. He was only 4 but we figured he’d enjoy seeing them do all their amazing tricks. We were right! (Or maybe it was the cotton candy? Either way, he had fun.) Now he’s 6 and OBSESSED with all things sports… [Read More]

World’s Toughest Rodeo, January 17 at PNC Arena

Look out Raleigh. The World’s Toughest Rodeo will be back at PNC Arena next Saturday, January 17.

Thirty professional cowboys will… [Read More]

Cici’s Pizza Gets a Recipe Makeover

I’m going to be honest here. I’ve been to CiC’s a few times. It’s pizza, cheap pizza at that, so with kids it always seems enticing. But the pizza has always been sort of meh. So we don’t go. Then I was invited to an event at a local CiCi’s to try out some of… [Read More]

They hope these events will share the brand’s love for premium ingredients, while also providing… [Read More]

Discover NC: Mt. Airy

My house no longer has diapers and my littlest one no longer requires naps. This means that vacations can be much more pleasant. It means that we can take a day trip or a weekend excursion without hauling an extra bag or two of stuff. I, for one, am ready. First on my agenda is… [Read More]

#SummerofGiving SIMPLE service project

When I think of summer, I think of pool time, the beach, running through the sprinklers and playing on playgrounds.  What I don’t think about is the lack of food that many children experience. According to Raleigh’s Interfaith Food Shuttle, of the 116,000 children on free and reduced lunch during the school year in our… [Read More]
