First off…can you believe that this school year is almost over?!?! Just a few weeks ago my girls and I spent a week in the Orlando area at my mom’s. My moved there about 3 years and we’ve taken full advantage of having somewhere to stay that feels just like home because it is! LOL And she can only tolerate us in small doses so a week or (4) here and there is enough for her! [Read more…]
Every year when we go to visit my mom in the Orlando area the first question people ask is “Are you all going to Disneyworld?” And my answer is always, nope! LOL I sometimes feel like people that there’s only one theme park in Florida. There are so many amazing things to do in the Orlando area. Legoland is a newer park aimed at kids up to 12 years old and their families. But if you’re not much of a thrill seeker but LOVE LEGO® than this park is great for us big kids too!
Legoland is typically open 7 days a week and their hours fluctuate between 10a-5p, 10a-6p and 10a-7p. Be sure to check out their website before you plan your trip! The day Morgan and I went we got there around 11a. I figured that would be a good time and boy was I wrong! We ended up spending almost 30 minutes in traffic just to enter the parking lot. Parking is $17 for cars so keep that in mind too!
Once we entered the park the first thing we wanted to get on was the Great LEGO® Race. The ride to get on was going to be almost 2 hours! Lawd…so yea we decided to check back before we would leave for the day. Luckily there were a lot of other rides that she wanted to get on. While we were there we ran into one of my good friend Michelle of Divas with a Purpose. You have no idea what a lifesaver that was for my sanity! Going to a place like this is always more fun when your child has other kids to hang with and get on the rides. [Read more…]
I don’t know about you but this past Winter did a number on everyone in this house. Being stuck indoors during the colder months can stress you out mentally and physically! Breathing in the same dry, circulated air along with cooties is not good for anyone. But as we move into Spring then we’re all full of pollen and sneeze all day long. That leaves you congested and full of mucus! This year I’ve decided to be more proactive in our health and try to ward off stuff before rather than wait until we’re all sick.
Wally’s Natural sent over a few things to help us take better care of our ear health. Did you know that your ear health is one of the most neglected senses? Their products were created with the mission to help people unwind. The line of natural products aims to help people relax with a loved one and take time for themselves. We are all about self care in this house and I want to make sure that my girls realize the importance of never putting yourself last.
The three products we got were Kids Ear Scrub, Ear Candles and Organic Ear Oil. Designed with children in mind, the ear scrub is a fun and safe way for kids to clean their ears. Morgan LOVED using this product. It comes with this cool sponge that looks like a beauty blender and all you do is get it wet, place a few drops on the sponge and clean those little ears! I swear ALL of the dirt, dust and debri goes to live in that kid’s ears. She uses it in the shower and its one less thing that I have to worry about doing…woohoo!
The Organic Ear Oil is a unique blend of essential oils that help to moisturize, soothe and comfort agitated ears. I used this a few times and it felt so weird because of the tea tree oil but after that “cooling” sensation wore off I was good to go. [Read more…]
My oldest daughter and I recently had a chance to attend a preview of Dinner Time Stories right here in Nashville! This dining experience has been widely popular in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and the UK and Nashville is the first stop on their North American tour.
The state-of-the-art dining concept is based on the culinary exploits of a diminutive animated character known as “Le Petit Chef.” Patrons will follow the 4-inch French chef character through a two-hour, fully choreographed, six-course dining experience that explores the route of Marco Polo. The mood, music, table patterns, exquisite decor and props all change with the chapters of the story to immerse the diner into one continuous 3D projected tale.
