Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Skiing Vacation Tip

My sister is watching our kiddos this weekend, so we can be on an anniversary trip in Denver. I'm leading a Great Group Games workshop today, so we tacked an extra day onto our trip to go skiing yesterday in Arapahoe Basin. It snowed all day, and the powder skiing was fantastic. Freezing - we had to splurge on face masks - but absolutely beautiful!

When I googled to look for discount ski tickets, I discovered a site called Liftopia. They offer tickets at 40% off the regular price. There is a no cancellation policy, so it's a bit of a gamble, but we were able to make our reservations 12 hours before skiing. So instead of 49.99 lift tickets, we got to ski all day for 29.99. And we definitely got our money out of it!

We both have bad knees, so we were a little bit hesitant about injury, but the biggest casualty was my bruised (badly bruised - ouch!) big toe from falling off the ski lift on my first run. I hate falling! And can you believe I jammed my toe in those huge ski boots? Very funny!

Happy weekend,

Hi Ann!

Skiing!! I wish I had some of that today. You are so lucky to be able to hit the slopes. It's 85 degrees down here in South Georgia today. Want to trade? :) Seriously, I hope you have a lovely anniversary trip (despite a few bruised tootsies)!!

Smiles, Bebe :)

P.S. You were talking about that Fiber One cereal in a previous post. Sometimes I go to and they have a free samples page. They had this cereal up there in the last few days.
