When I was a kid, I had the opportunity to go to Girl Scout Camp every year. I loved it because it gave me the chance to sleep in a tent or teepee, learn about horses, experience the outdoors and make new friends. Camp is an experience that every child should have if possible. I […]...

Frank and I love to go cruising. Not only is it relaxing and fun to travel, but I love sharing about our experiences and giving tips on my blog and social media channels! Recently, we cruised the Western Caribbean on the Carnival Conquest and it was a great experience! I love how friendly the staff […]...

We love to travel, but with 6 kids, that can get really expensive rather quickly. With an RV, traveling becomes and affordable! While we were super excited to purchase our RV, we realized there were also some ways we wanted to upgrade the RV to make long drives and stays as comfortable and enjoyable as […]...

We received tickets to Epcot in exchange for sharing about our experience. All opinions are mine. I’ve only seen Epcot from a distance, but this summer, Frank and I had the opportunity to visit Epcot during our summer vacation. We headed to Florida for a work conference, visit with my family, trip to Epcot and […]...

A few weeks ago, Frank and I headed to Miami, Florida. There he had a work conference, which I helped at, and then we headed to Orlando to visit my mom and then Ft. Lauderdale to head out for our 7-day Caribbean Cruise. I’d been to Florida a few times and it’s amazing how you […]...

Summertime is here and that means our kids are out of school and have a lot of free time on their hands. How often do you hear the phrase, “Mom, I’m bored. There’s nothing to do.” Whereas during the school year, they can’t wait for all that free time during the summer. The trick is […]...

I received tickets in exchange for this blog post. All opinions are mine. If you haven’t noticed, we love to take road trips to Las Vegas. It’s about a 7 hour drive, but such a great chance to get away together. This last time, we headed out with my in-laws and it was a lot […]...

This post is brought to you in partnership with Penguin Random House. All opinions are mine. Last year, we bought a 2015 Toyota Sienna and both Frank and I love to drive it! It’s super comfortable for going on day trips or traveling far for staycations and vacations! However, going on road trips takes time […]...

One of my favorite things to do as a kid was swim in the pool where my dad and stepmom lived when I was growing up. I would dive for diving eggs, do handstands under the water, play with the pool floats and lay by the pool. There are so many memories I have of […]...

When we travel, we always look for great deals! Whether it’s getting cash back on purchases, enjoying upgrades or earning points on our hotel stays, saving money while traveling makes it that much more enjoyable. The demand is growing for bigger, better, and faster rewards, even as many loyalty programs – and their perks – […]...

A few weeks ago, our family headed down to Southern California for a much needed staycation. We only took half of our crew (3 of our 6 kids) this time around, but after our experience with Extended Stay America, we would definitely do it again with all 6 kids! We headed down on Friday after […]...

On our last cruise, Frank and I traveled to the Caribbean. Our very first stop was Barbados. We were really excited because neither of us had been to the Caribbean before and this was going to be our first time to Barbados. When we got off the ship, we had to take a shuttle into […]...

I had heard about CES (Consumer Electronics Show), but never attended before….until this year. My husband (who works in the field of technology) had attended before and had a little better idea of what to expect. While there was a lot to get out of it, I don’t really feel I was prepared as much as […]...

Frank and I love going on road trips to Las Vegas! A few visits ago, I was introduced to the Brazilian Steakhouse. I have to be honest and say that I was hesitant to go to one after seeing the movie, “Bridesmaids.” I was afraid to try it for fear I would have an experience […]...

In August of 2015, Frank and I decided to take a well-needed cruise aboard Carnival Cruise Lines. Our destination was to head for the Caribbean via Puerto Rico. I’d never been to either Puerto Rico or the Caribbean and neither had he, so we were both very excited. One of the ports our cruise ship stopped […]...

If you are like most people, then you probably feel that the day is too short and that you don’t have time to do all the things you want to do. This is not a surprise given that modern people have to work for eight or more hours a day (sometimes even on holidays) and […]...

It’s been quite some time since I’ve been to a blogger event and I was really excited to attend the Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards Ride-n-Drive Blogger Event, thanks to iConnect! I love cars and this event was full of them – brand new, smooth-riding, comfy-driving cars who were the finalists of the Kelley […]...
