Chattahoochee Nature Center

On our Georgia trip, we made sure to head over to the Chattahoochee Nature Centernter in Roswell, GA. I had been when I was younger, but didn’t know much about it recently. Boy did it change! I was super impressed with everything they had to offer and we weren’t even able to go on a themed day. They have themed days relating back to the time of year or addressing specific topics, which is great for those looking for some bonus add-ons to your curriculum! I highly recommend stopping by if you’re local or in the area traveling! We really enjoyed this as a field trip because it pairs nature with education, which I love!

Autrey Mill Nature Preserve

It’s been a VERY long time since I have been to Autrey Mill Nature Preserve in Georgia, which is exactly why I decided to make the trip over there. Between hiking, exploring the historic village buildings, checking out the old mill and mine locations, and learning about the animal exhibits, one could definitely spend a great afternoon or entire day here! Everyone was extremely nice and helpful, and the camps they offer seem really interesting! If you’re in Georgia, this would be a great day trip!

Sawnee Mountain Hike

While on our Georgia trip, we headed over to Sawnee a few times to meet up with my mom for a mid-day hike. Being in Florida, we rarely see mountains, so we loved hiking this one while we were in town! We really enjoyed exploring the mountain and seeing most of North Georgia from the Indian Seats. We never had time to park across the street in the new parking lot, but that trail is supposedly even longer. That would be a great option for those looking for a longer distance. I also want to mention that there’s a small playground near the parking lot, which is a nice bonus for those with kids! Here’s a video from our time at Sawnee! We hope you enjoy!

Fort Friday!!

Happy Fort Friday everybody! I’m assuming even our oldest of readers are building their forts as we speak…right?!? haha! You’re never too young to start! We have to be creative with our forts these days! We enjoy a good fort Friday! We’ve spotted a pretty day outside, so we’re heading out! Hope everybody has a wonderful weekend!

It’s also worth mentioning that forts are a favorite pastime of ours when sickness has taken over our house! I highly recommend adding a fort day to your sick days! It works wonders! 🙂

When Norwex Won’t Fit the Bill

Prior to fulltiming, I spent some money on a few Norwex cloths because they were highly recommended for cleaning stainless, among other things. One of the reasons everybody loves Norwex is because they can be used for so many things!  For whatever reason, when I went to clean the fridge, freezer, microwave, and stove for the first time…NOTHING HAPPENED!! It didn’t do anything! I was sooooo frustrated I had bought these cloths JUST for this reason. Yes, I use them for other things, but this was why I bought them. Discouraged, I turned to my group of mom friends for help. It turned out a few other moms had the same issue and were seeking advice as well. One mom friend had the most unusual idea and I decided to give it a try and it totally worked! Watch this video and let me know what you think!

Have you ever heard of this?? Have you tried it? What did you think?

Girls Night!

Whether you travel or not, you’re bound to need a night out with the girls, unless you’re a guy…then you could probably care less! Regardless, I highly recommend getting with a local bakery to see if they do any cake decorating classes, private ones specifically. I don’t know why I’ve never thought of this before, but we had so much fun when a friend planned a private party for just the girls! We brought food and drinks and came armed to decorate! We had so much fun, I had to plan another one!
