24 HOURS WITHOUT KIDS! | Overnight Getaway

Kathy Thornburg

Not too long ago, Troy and I left for a quick weekend away to South Carolina. 🚗 We had a great time talking about everything from the fun memories of the past to the hopes and dreams for the future. Of course, thanks to Troy's travel hacking skills, we stayed at an awesome hotel for free and he even scored us some free cheesecake. 🍽️

I pretty much let Troy make the decisions for this trip so he planned everything from childcare (thanks Katie and Drew!) to all the places we would go in our 24 hours away.

IT'S A CAKETASTROPHE! 🍰

Kathy Thornburg

Making my kids’ birthday cakes has always been important to me and always memorable- even if they don’t go exactly as I had in mind. Now that my kids are old enough to want to have input on the details of their cake, it is even trickier! My biggest piece of advice…beware of letting your kid scroll through Pinterest to look for cakes they like. THEY WILL CHOOSE THE MOST DIFFICULT CAKE ON THE INTERNET! 😆

Milo's 7th birthday party did NOT go as planned. 🤪 Watch the video to find out what went wrong this year with the birthday cake plus a look back through cakes over the years. 🎂

Now, I’ve made many cakes over the years and have acquired many gadgets and supplies in that time. Here are some of my all time favorites and essentials for getting started.

My Favorite Cake Supplies:
Americolor Food Coloring
Revolving Cake Stand
Cake Leveler
Decorating Tips
Decorating Bags
Offset Spatula
Square Pan Set
Round Pan Set

My absolute favorite decorating tip is a 1M found HERE. Mine met its match in the garbage disposal. 😥 It’s definitely on my list of things to buy!

 
 Every year is special, but I was especially fond of Milo’s pirate birthday cake.

A NEW JOURNEY | Leaving Preschool Behind

Kathy Thornburg

We made a big change! Eden is no longer in preschool and we are now on a new journey through homeschool. This is an exciting and slightly overwhelming undertaking, but we feel it's what is truly best for our family.

I'd love to know your best homeschooling tips and your ideas for interesting themes. We are having a great time and look forward to sharing this journey with you!

DISNEY DAY AT HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS | Flying back home 👋

Kathy Thornburg

We went to Disney and it was magical (and very hot). We spent one entire day at Hollywood Studios and we made the most of every moment. We started with magic hour, met lots of Star Wars characters, rode some rides, watched a lot of shows, and rode our favorite ride of the day in the NEW Toy Story Land!
