Our Experience At Universal Studios...

I honestly just had to share this. I was highly impressed with our experience at Universal Studios. We surprised my son with a trip there yesterday and it was a beautiful day to go. The kiddo loves Transformers and we had waited a little while after it was open to head out there. We saw Optimus Prime and Bumblebee and then went to ride the actual ride. While we stood there waiting a while it ended up the ride was having technical difficulties. Okay well, we will go somewhere and then come…

Cookbooks For Gifts

I have to say I love cookbooks. I love looking through the recipe pictures and seeing all those wonderful ideas maybe I haven't even thought of. I love to cook from them when I have time but unfortunately, I don't always get to try them out. I have received them as gifts before and they are pretty wonderful. One of my favorite one's to dig through was one of Rachel Ray's my brother gave me one year. My all time favorite one is one my mother started me when I got married. She made a binder of…

Best Holiday Light Shows Ever

Tis the season! It's almost time, or past time for some, to deck the halls, trim the tree and hang those thousands of lights. We love Christmas here and I do say I love the decorating and the more lights the better :).

When do you hang your lights and put up the tree? Is it done already or do you wait until the weekend after Thanksgiving? For us that weekend right after Thankgsiving we are working on the Christmas decorations. I love it and my son does too. My hubby, eehhh..…

Hi Jen,


Do you think we can start some awareness with the Blog I posted.  This is a great avenue in our community to use for this awareness.  So far people are reading and no one is saying a word.  Which is usual with this topic. Please help!!!

I can ask my SIL if she is still doing family photos bc she does the photography for Family Times magazine! Also, we have a family friend that is really good as well and did my family photos when I was pregnant with Matthew. I will get you her info later. Lastly, Pink Rae is really good!

This event will offer Mom's the opportunity to enjoy networking, special discounts, prize drawings, women's health and wellness, food sampling, DJ providing music, fashion shows, demonstrations, and more. We would love to have OcalaMom participate. Can you let me know who I should contact regarding this event?

The rate is $150 for the evening, you will have at table and chairs, and can participate in a variety of ways. Some examples are: hand out information, have a demonstration or interactive display, sweepstakes prize, celebrity appearance, coupons, to name a few.

Thank you! There is so much information on this page it's wonderful and a bit overwhelming! I'm trying to see if there are any toddler play groups that anyone knows about?

Thanks Jen! That sounds great! :-)

Thank you Jen, i was hoping we can find some moms and their little ones to spend some time with. I have 11 month old son and i don't know anybody here in Ocala who is stay home mom with toddler. As my family is in Europe and my husband family is no longer here it is getting quite challenging for me to socialize. We also live on the farm in the middle of nowhere :-) so no neighbors there either ;-). If you know somebody or some good event for us that would be great. I subscribed to FB as well. Thanks again and Happy New Year!
