As I mentioned in my Weekend WrapUp post, this weekend the babies and I headed a few hours south of Atlanta to Cordele, GA for a Day Out with Thomas. The drive down wasn’t so bad but after those kids ran me ragged I was struggling trying to get back. They fell asleep before I pulled out of the parking lot good.
We were cutting it close so we had to run to get on the train for our scheduled 1:30 departure. The train was packed to capacity, we finally found our seats and right on time the conductor came over the loud speaker encouraging the children to yell “Push, Thomas, Push” in an effort to get the train rolling. Eventually the yells became deafening enough and we were on our way!!
The scenery was beautiful. We chugged along over Lake Blackshear and before we knew it we were headed back to the station. If there was one negative to be said, the train ride was a little short, but then again in a train car full of children…..
After getting off of the train there was a plethora of FREE activities for the children to participate in. Bounce houses, a playground,
funnel cakes, face painting, temporary tattoos, story telling. Just a whole lot of fun activities.
We ate, played and enjoyed ourselves before heading home. Thomas will be in Cordele for another weekend before moving on to his next stop. Please visit a Day Out With Thomas online for additional information regarding ticket prices and locations. This was a wonderful fall activity for the family to enjoy.I was provided compensation for this post. However, you already know from now until the end of time all opinions are mine.
I hope you and your family have a great new year. I am glad the new year is here and I am ready to hit the ground running.
This weekend was rather low key considering it was New Years.
With the start of the new year I felt it necessary to get a new look…This is only a small portion of what hit the floor.
After that was said and done, I started off the weekend by attending the Pre New Years Eve Bash hosted by Lexi and Danielle of Curls, Coils and Kinks and The Style and Beauty Doctor respectfully. The event was held at Sole Boutique here in Atlanta at Atlantic Station. Cute space. They even offered a 30% off deal but there were too many people there and I have to focus when I make purchases. I’ll definitely be back though.
I’m linking up with Glamamom for Monday Mingle. I wore:
Socks: T.J. Maxx Shoes: Ross
Saturday morning, I headed out to drop some shirts off to a lady who will be adding Swarvoski crystals to a shirt design. Headed back home for a day of cleaning and grocery shopping. As evening fell I decided the kids and I would head out to church, and the Mr. went to see some friends who were in town. Sad for us, when we got to church no one was there. Our church has two campuses and evidently I missed the memo. So we headed back home and I counted down and kissed my babies for the new year.
Sunday, we took my stepdaughter home. I came home and whipped up the obligatory collard greens along with some chicken and potato salad for dinner. I must say it was good. I’m going to be domestic yet.
How was your New Years? Were you a party animal, church goer or homebody? I wanna know!!
Hey there. Hope all is well.
First things first. I must announce the winner for the UK Style giveaway. Thank you to everyone who participated. *drum roll* The winner is…….

The summer is wrapping up for us and I am looking forward to everything going back to normal. School here starts on August 1, so I am in the process of getting Lil Man ready for Kindergarten *sniffles* I can’t believe it. He is really pressing the issue about riding the school bus and I’m just not sure. Furthermore I’m stressing because I want to pack him lunches and send him with a lunchbox and smiley face notes. His dad says that’s lame. Is it?
Lil Mama left on Saturday morning to spend some time with her godmother in Fl. I miss her, but I was becoming a little unraveled. I needed a few days to myself. She’ll be back tomorrow. I will be refreshed by then. Lil Mama is growing so fast, and has turned into quite the bully. Slapping and biting are her weapons of choice.
Well, after completing the 10K I have decided in an effort to maintain a healthy lifestyle I am going to start training for a half marathon. YES 13.1 miles. Me. <–. The plan is to do two. One in Savannah in November and the Disney Princess in February. I’m going to really keep track of my progress on the blog through a new app I found for my phone..you know accountability. With you all watching me, I will feel like a failure if I slack off and don’t go through with it. Don’t let me fall off. Okay?
I haven’t been taking as many photos as I would like trying to keep peace in the house with the kids. I did order some business cards from this site called Moo. If you need cards you have to go there. The quality is awesome and they are very reasonable.
Welp, that’s enough of my ramblings. How was your weekend?
