Moving Tips to Help the Busy Parent

Moving can be extremely exhausting for everyone, especially now during a pandemic where you are trying to virtually teach your children, work from home, attempt to pack, and everything else! Hire a babysitter, family, or friend to help watch your kids if they are little to give you time to pack items that need to get done. You could also ask if you can set up a playdate with neighborhood kids to watch your child while you pack items as well. It’s a lot easier and safer to have the kids out while moving things around and out of your home.

Valentine's Hot Chocolate Bombs

Nothing beats a good cup of hot chocolate on a cool day, especially a winter’s or snowy day. Valentine’s Day is a great time to make Valentine’s hot cocoa bombs. Pour candy melts into a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds or until melts have fully melted. If you’re looking for other Valentine’s Day recipes to try, check out this chocolate crepes recipe for Valentine’s Day brunch or these homemade chocolate-covered cherries.

#ad This past Sunday my husband and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary! And we enjoyed an absolutely perfect anniversary dinner at O’Charley's (it was a cheat day from my low-carb/modified Keto diet)! From the hot yeast rolls, the fresh side salad, and the fried green tomatoes appetizer to the delicious Sante Fe Tilapia for an entree (my husband got the chicken parmesan), it was the most delightful meal. And they have the best broccoli I have ever eaten in my life! 🥦It was perfect. Our waitress, Heather (who went above and beyond to make our anniversary dinner special), said they steamed it with butter (and garlic, I think)... whatever they do, it is the BEST! I love that the Sante Fe Tilapia, if you hold the rice, and the amazing broccoli is keto-friendly. 🙌🏼 To top our dinner off we chose the Bananas Foster Cheesecake. All the desserts sound amazing, but I think we made the perfect choice! It was creamy, rich, and decadent. It has a rum-flavored caramel sauce, candied pecans, and slices of bananas - it's just the right amount of sweet. We can't wait to stop by on a Wednesday for "Free Pie Wednesdays"! Yes, FREE pie!! Thank you @ocharleys for making our anniversary so special! #ocharleys . . . . . #food #foodie #goodeats #instagood #instapic #picoftheday #photooftheday #restaurant #wtfoodie #yummy #tasty #dessert #instafood #foodie #foodstagram #eats #love #happy #knoxville #knoxvilleblogger #foodpics #foodie #foodlovers #anniversary #anniversarydinner #cheesecake #freepie #pie

AD I love this time of year! I love shopping for others and truly love giving to others! And I love giving gift cards! Walgreens makes it so easy to find the perfect gift cards for those on my list with a huge variety to choose from. Gift cards are a great way to give personal gifts to those on your list because you can give them gift cards that are based on your recipient's interests. I love gifting restaurant gift cards and this year I'm giving a The Cheesecake Factory gift card to a special person (who follows my social channels so it's a secret)! I think they'll love it and it makes me feel good gifting something I know they are going to enjoy and really appreciate! I also spend the last few days before Christmas picking up gift cards, so if you are like me, be sure to do some #WalgreensHolidayGifting with @incommworldwide this season! . . . . . #instagood #instapic #holidayseason #christmas #gifts #giftcards #holiday #picoftheday #photooftheday #love #beautiful #happy #cute #me #fun #knoxville #knoxvilleblogger #blogger #holidayshopping #holidays #christmasgifts #christmastime

AD One of my favorite things in life is date night with my husband. Our last date night was even more special with the @hobbsandshaw Exclusive DVD Gift Set with a HOBBS custom T-shirt I got @walmart! Especially since he wanted to see Hobbs & Shaw when it was in the theaters but I was out of town and he decided to wait to see it with me.❤️ So watching the Hobbs & Shaw DVD was even more special. It’s a great action-packed movie and if you or the special someone in your life is a fan of the Fast & Furious series, then I recommend you pick it up for your next movie night! So grab your popcorn 🍿 and the movie (get your Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw Walmart Exclusive DVD DVD TODAY), and cuddle up with your sweetheart! And check out my InstaStory to see how our little four-legged friend joined us! #HobbsAndShawAtWalmart #pmedia . . . . #hobbsandshaw #movienight #datenight #instapic #instagood #picoftheday #photooftheday #love #happy #knoxville #knoxvilleblogger #fun #marriage #marriageisbeautiful #marriagevibes #marriageisawesome #couplegoals #lovelovelove #lovestory #movies #actionmovies #tuesday #fastcars

I love kimonos and this one I bought from Amazon is one of my favorites! #affiliate Who doesn’t love leopard print?? It’s fun wearing leopard print and this kimono is sheer, but only slightly. It has some weight to it, so it’s perfect for fall and spring. #commissionsearned You can shop this kimono and more at my Amazon Store here - https://www.amazon.com/shop/donnachaffins #fashion . . . #fashionista #fashionistas #fashionphotography #instapic #instagood #picoftheday #photooftheday #me #love #kimono #amazon #ootd #instafashion #fashiontrends #fashionpost #fashionlover #fashionblog #fashionlovers #fashioninspiration #lifestyleblogger #knoxville #knoxvilleblogger #fashionstyle #ootdshare

(sponsored) I'm always looking for the Fountain of Youth and I may have found it with @Clinique! The Clinique Smart MD is an age transforming duo in one jar. One side of the jar (lavender-colored cream) plumps and adds volume and the other side (white-colored gel) firms and tightens skin. I'm in my mid-50s and my skin can use both plumping and firming, so Clinique Smart MD is perfect for me. I just apply the plumping cream around my eyes and the skin-tightening cream on the rest of my face, jawline, and neck. I've been using Clinique Smart MD for a week now and I'm liking the results so far! And be sure to check out Clinique's Acne Solutions at their local Clinique Counter. #smartmd . . . #beauty #beautyproducts #bblogger #instapic #picoftheday #instagood #love #me #happy #photooftheday #knoxvilleblogger #knoxville #antiagingskincare #antiagingproducts #antiagingsolution #antiagingcream #antiagingtreatment #antiagingproduct #wrinklefree #nomorewrinkles #antiagingtips #skincare #youngerskin #beautygram #over40 #over50 #over50blogger #beautyblogger
