Disneynature Monkey Kingdom Movie Review #MonkeyKingdom

  I had the opportunity to see an early screening of Disneynature's Monkey Kingdom while in Los Angeles last week with Disney and Marvel. Travel and accommodations were covered, but all thoughts … [Read More...]

San Diego Zoo #PSF Give Me Your Best Shot

San Diego Zoo

  I know what you're probably thinking. Didn't she JUST post about going to Los Angeles Zoo? Yes, I did. And then, after my #AvengersEvent #MonkeyKingdom trip was over, I drove down to San Diego to spend a couple of days with family.   Apparently, I didn't get enough of zoo animals (and let's face it, the gorgeous Southern … [Read More...]

Celebrating Monkey Kingdom at the Los Angeles Zoo #MonkeyKingdom

Los Angeles Zoo Monkey Kingdom

  I visited the L.A. Zoo last week right after a screening of Disneynature's Monkey Kingdom while on a press trip with Disney and Marvel. All adventures, travel, and accommodations were courtesy of Disney/Marvel. All thoughts are my own.   When the kids were younger, I used to take them to the zoo near us every Spring Break, so it … [Read More...]

The Power of Home Equity

Legends Plaza #AvengersEvent #PSF

IMG_20150409_221719

  It's a late night. I've flown across the country, attended the very first screening of the new Avengers: Age of Ultron, and now I desperately need to sleep. But first...2 night time pictures from Legends Plaza at Disney Studios, where we saw the movie. I can't say anything about the movie quite yet, except that I loved it. Humor, … [Read More...]

Crazy 8s Club Makes Math Fun For Kids

Bedtime Math 3

  This post is a recap of my compensated Ambassadorship for Bedtime Math Crazy 8s Club. All opinions expressed here are my own. Before I had kids, I was a teacher. As a teacher AND as a mother to young kids, one thing that I felt strongly about was that kids learned best when they were having FUN. As my kids were making their way through … [Read More...]

Easter 2015 With Cousins

Easter egg hunt

  Easter 2015: We had a blast with the Pennsylvania cousins this past weekend. Lots of candy, lots of giggles, lots of good food. On Easter Day, we drove over to the hill by the Hershey Gardens and had a fun (and windy) Easter Egg hunt. We missed having our oldest daughter there, since she's off at college out of state. I really missed … [Read More...]

Easy Food Preservation with Freezer Label Printables

defrost

  How many times have you packaged up leftovers or some meat you bought on sale only to discover the bag in the freezer a few months later. It's unrecognizable, unlabeled, and eventually ends up getting trashed. Today I have a guest post from a fellow blogger who has a great resource to share. She's got a collection of freezer … [Read More...]

April Blog Prompts {12 Months of Writing Ideas} #BlogPrompts

April blog prompts

  We're finally on Spring Break. We seem to be the last school district in the country to go on Spring Break! But thank goodness, we finally have a hint of spring-like weather. I'll take what I can get! Yes, I typically post my monthly blog prompts on the first Sunday of each new month, but frankly, I needed the break for Easter, and I … [Read More...]

Avengers Easter Eggs #AvengersEvent

Avengers Easter Eggs

  In anticipation of next week's press event with the cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron, my 15-year-old daughter and I painted a dozen Easter Eggs inspired by the Avengers. It took a long time, but we had SO much fun getting creative (because it's NOT always easy to figure out how to represent a character on an egg) so I figured I'd … [Read More...]
