Both of my kiddos were born in September, so we’re going to try to do joint parties for them for as long as possible. A two-for-one deal! For their last birthday, we did a Mermaid and Pirate theme. There are so many adorable ideas on Pinterest for a mermaid pirate birthday party and I went all out with the theme for the food and decorations!

5 Tips for Touring the Jack Daniel’s Distillery

If you’re a whiskey fan, you’ve got to take a trip to Lynchburg, Tennessee to visit the Jack Daniel’s Distillery.  Touring the distillery has always been on my husband’s bucket list, so on our way up to Nashville we had to stop by. The tour was super informative, and the whiskey tasting at the end was lots of fun!

Here are 5 tips for touring the Jack Daniels Distillery.

Strawberry Picking at Washington Farms

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them helps support this website. 

One of our favorite spring activities is strawberry picking at Washington Farms, a local strawberry farm.

The kids love running up and down the rows, filing up their buckets and sneaking a few of the fresh-off-the-vine-strawberries. After a few minutes, their clothes and fingers are stained with strawberry juice. And of course, I love cooking and baking with the berries. Strawberry shortcake, strawberry pie, strawberry salad, strawberries with cream, strawberry jam bars – the yummy possibilities are endless!

Tonight, we’re having PJ Family Movie Night at home and watching the original animated Beauty and the Beast. It’s a classic!

We’re all pretty beat – we spent the morning at Washington Farms picking strawberries, playing, eating ice cream, and getting a tiny bit sunburned. So it’s the perfect night for a movie – we can relax and put our feet up!

To go with our movie, we made a quick themed snack. I saw these adorable Puff Pastry Apple Roses on Facebook a few days ago and they looked so cute and easy – I knew I wanted to try making them!

Our Easter Sunday

We had such a busy Easter Sunday.

Easter Sunday | sunshineandholly.com

Lots of driving, church, food to organize, an egg hunt to prep, a couple of Easter baskets to fill, all on less than 5 hours of sleep. (Where’s that Easter bunny when I need him? I could’ve used a little help!)

Add all of that, on top of all our normal activities and chores, and needless to say – I was one stressed out mama.

So although adorable, these pictures won’t tell the true story of our Easter Sunday.
