Road Trip {Hiawassee, GA}

Road Trip {Hiawassee, GA}

So, this is mostly a DIY blog.  But I also share the trips we take, big and small.  Growing up, I was so fortunate that my parents took my sister and I on most of the trips they went on.  The world is so big and there is so much to see!  I try to take every opportunity to do the same with my girls. So…when Mom asked me if I wanted to accompany her on a little recognizance mission…

Around Asheville

Around Asheville

I shared our experience at the Biltmore’s Candlelight Christmas Tour on Monday so today I thought I would share some of our favorite spots during our visit to Asheville.  Touring the Biltmore was on my bucket list so when my husband offered to take me there he didn’t have to ask twice! I hemmed and hawed over where we should stay for weeks.  In mid-December I got a Travelzoo newsletter with an awesome rate at the Grand Bohemian located in…

Biltmore Candlelight Christmas Tour

Biltmore Candlelight Christmas Tour

Hi friends!  I am back from a brief hiatus/Christmas break.  I’ve had a lot things going on behind the scenes here on the Bay Bush and I hope to share more about those later.  But today I want to share a little getaway my husband and I took right after New Years.  We hadn’t been on a trip together without the kids in almost eight years!  It was much over-do. When we were brainstorming options for the trip, Chad mentioned…

Outer Banks Trip

Outer Banks Trip

I’m still back tracking to get you guys caught up on everything that happened during my ‘blog break.’  Today I wanted to share a special day that I got to spend with my oldest (and 120 of her closest third grade friends). It’s a tradition at my daughters’ school for the third graders to take a trip to the NC Outer Banks and visit the Wright Brothers Memorial, Jockey’s Ridge and Bodie Island Lighthouse.  (Normally they visit the aquarium but…

Universal Orlando {Vacay Day 6}

Universal Orlando {Vacay Day 6}

We finished up our trip at Universal Orlando.  Avery got to meet Diego right as we walked in the park and was giddy with excitement.  McKenna wouldn’t deign to have her picture made with him.    While Avery was meeting Diego, Chad set off to buy gloves for all of us.  It was so cold and the wind was blowing.   If Avery wasn’t already on cloud 9 after meeting Diego, her life was about to be made when we…

SeaWorld Orlando {Vacay Day 5}

SeaWorld Orlando {Vacay Day 5}

We spent a positively fun, but frigid day at SeaWorld Orlando.  It was 40 degrees and blowing 40mph. Not exactly an ideal day to visit but we decided to make the most of our time.  That’s one of the dangers of going to Orlando in January…it could be 85 degrees when you get there and 40 degrees by the time you leave.  You just never know.  That’s how the weather has been the last two times we have gone in January. But…

Magic Kingdom {Vacay Day 4}

Magic Kingdom {Vacay Day 4}

Greetings from the frozen tundra that my little corner of the world has turned into!  I’m ready for those first warm days of spring before the bugs and pollen take over. Anyway,  I thought I’d try to continue on with our Vacation recap.  As I mentioned at the end of the last post, I spent the better part of the third day at Urgent Care watching HGTV and begging for an antibiotic.   We spent the rest of the day resting…

Magic Kingdom {Vacay Day 2}

Magic Kingdom {Vacay Day 2}

We kicked off the second day of our vacation at the Magic Kingdom.  You can read about the first day at Universal Islands of Adventure here.  And just in case you are not familiar…Magic Kingdom is a Disney park and Islands of Adventure is not.  They are owned by different companies and multi-day tickets are not interchangeable between the two parks.    So my plan was to be at the Magic Kingdom at “Rope Drop” and see the characters come…

Universal – Islands of Adventure {Day 1}

Universal – Islands of Adventure {Day 1}

  As usual, January has been crazy busy on the Bay Bush.  We spent a week in Florida and I’m still playing catch up.   We decided to visit Universal Studios this time around since we all love the Harry Potter books and movies.  I debated about how many days of tickets to buy because a lot of the reviews said that the parks were smaller than Disney and wouldn’t take as much time.  They were running a promotion…

Thanksgiving and Myrtle Beach

Thanksgiving and Myrtle Beach

I’m doing my best to get the old blog up to date so I can post some Christmas pictures! We celebrated Thanksgiving with my husband’s family plus my Dad and Granny.  We had a wonderful meal and I’m kicking myself for not taking any pictures. I had a little accident the Friday before Thanksgiving that left me hobbling around and looking like this.  We went to the ER to make sure the baby was okay and that my ankle wasn’t…
