Since the inception of our family in 2005 we have never taken a family photo. NEVER. My stepdaughter is only with us every other Thanksgiving, so I booked a photographer this year to make sure that we had family photos done in enough time to send out Christmas cards. We’ve never sent out Christmas cards either. I know.
It’s November 10. To say I’m a little perturbed by the fact that in the matter of a week it has jumped from Harvest Season/Fall to Christmas/Winter. I need a buffer.
In case you hadn’t noticed Easter is just around the corner. With the hustle and bustle of buying dresses and practicing Easter speeches it is so easy to wait until the last minute to make plans regarding Easter dinner and post service fellowship.
Last year the family and I joined my best friend and her family for brunch at a local restaurant. This year she is hosting everyone at her home for a family style brunch. We’ve been requested to contribute a few dishes to the feast and being that I cook alright for us I would rather just pick up something that is ready to heat and eat for a large group of people. Mishap proof, cause something always goes wrong when I try to cook in large batches. I know my lane.
After visiting the Honey Baked Ham headquarters in December and having the opportunity to taste the majority of their heat and eat options I already know where my dishes are coming from.
These two were my favorites:
In the event you weren’t aware Honey Baked Ham also offers Turkey Breasts in addition to their signature Hams. Outside of the premium meats, there are also a plethora of options for heat and eat sides as well as delectable desserts.
Head over to your local Honey Baked store to see the selections for yourself. Please visit MyHoneyBakedStore.com for locations and hours as well as HoneyBakedOnline.com for shipping orders.
Honey Baked Ham will also be hosting a Twitter chat on April 15, 2014. April 15 is not just known as tax day but is also recognized as ” National Glazed Spiral Ham Day”. Please join us for a great conversation revolving around Easter family traditions using the hashtag #HoneyBakedEaster
Now for the fun part. Honey Baked Ham is offering one of you a $50 Gift Card to get your Easter dinner started. Winner must be a US resident. Contest will end on April 15. Good Luck!

Did ya miss me?!
Took a few weeks off to get well, enjoy the holidays and just reflect on my moves for 2014.
Christmas was well. We didn’t go all out for the children, each was given 3 gifts except for the baby. Lil Mama was blessed with 5 gifts, but she’s a baby still so yeah!
We decided moving forward that Christmas would be more about building traditions so Christmas Eve we made cookies
The baby woke at the crack of dawn. I tried to put her off for a few minutes. That Southern Comfort
mixed with Hennessy had me sleeping goooooooood, you hear me? My son got a tablet, my stepdaughter a laptop and Addison got her own baby tablet better known as a Nabi
I’m glad the holidays are over. It always seems like life is suspended and then everything goes back to normal. Now I’m just counting down the days until school is back in session. These folks are driving me crazy over here.
How was your Christmas? Anything spectacular happen? Anybody get engaged? Anybody get a new car?
Tuesday afternoon I had the pleasure of heading up to Honey Baked Ham’s Alpharetta headquarters to take a tour of their facility and learn more about the company, their business model and their classic and holiday product offerings.
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Soundfreaq. I received a Soundfreaq Sound Spot to facilitate my review. ALL opinions are mine. You.Already.Know
I have these moments where I can watch television and then there are times like now when it wouldn’t matter if we had 5 or 0 televisions in this house. The general consensus is I am a music girl. Music has always been a big part of my life. I had an aunt who went to sleep with the “Quiet Storm” playing all night long on the radio, so in my sleep I heard music. Saturday morning when I heard my mother crank up the radio or turn on Soul Train I knew it was time to get up and clean up!
I normally just put on my headphones and listen to Rhapsody or iTunes and clean or do whatever I’m doing, but now I don’t have to because I was sent two Soundfreaq Sound Spots to review and I know this is going to sound corny but they are “freaqing” awesome! Initially I was all like why didn’t they send me two of the same color but reviewers can’t be choosy and when I heard how well the bass sounded I was sold.
