A TGIFriday’s Evia Party: The Ball’s 3rd Birthday

Being one of the kids’ favorite weekend haunts, TGIFriday’s was really at the top of our list of the possible places for the Ball’s 3rd Birthday Thanksgiving.

What’s in store for 2017?

On a more personal note, I’ve experienced several milestones in 2016 which led me to thinking: What’s in store for me in 2017?  Well, since one highlight of 2017 was being able to start MommySOM, I figure I should kick off the blog this year on a high and hopeful note.  The past year sure had a lot of challenges, but here’s what I am most thankful for in 2016 and what I pray 2017 will bring.
