Field Trip Friday: National Aquarium Style!

National Aquarium in Baltimore

It’s halfway through July and more than halfway through Evan’s summer vacation. The days I have left to cross items off our summer bucket list are growing shorter. But I refuse to pressure myself to have fun. Wait. That sounds wrong. I mean, that I don’t want to overplan and overschedule and never stop to enjoy […]

How We Survived Glamping at the Sea Pirate Campground

Sea Pirate Campground

I am not a high maintenance chick. At least I don’t think I am. I just like the finer things in life. You know, LIKE RUNNING WATER AND ELECTRICITY. I’m truly a nature girl at heart but after immersing myself in the elements, I just want a comfortable bed, a shower, and air conditioning. Is […]

You’ve never seen the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster® Starring Aerosmith like this before

When it comes to Disney, you might think that I’ve seen it, done it, and tasted it all. I’ve also probably written about it, photographed it, and even vlogged about it. But the truth is, there are so many more layers to me and Disney. For example, I bet you didn’t know these four things about […]

A Weekend of Pirates and Camping in Tuckerton, NJ

Field Trip Friday - Tuckerton

Here’s how new experiences usually go with my son Evan. Me: Evan, guess what we’re going to do? We’re going to (fill in the blank with something every other kid would think to be fun)!!! Evan: Do we have to do that? Can’t we just stay home so I can (watch TV/play video games/be a slug on […]

14 Days and Counting

Field Trip Friday 2015

What kind of parent are you? YAY! Summer vacation is here!!! or Oh man, summer vacation is here. Admittedly, I’m a little of both. I don’t enjoy the routine of the school year and trying to fit into that mold only creates a level of ordered chaos always on the brink of madness. With summer […]

Fiat 500X: A Taste of Italy in Southern California

Fiat 500X

Why would a car manufacturer fly several bloggers out to Los Angeles just to take a look at a car? Great question. I’m glad you asked. Let’s start with the obvious. They want to get us in the car and driving the car and talking about the car. But true auto enthusiasts know that a […]

2015 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration: Day 4


If I could paint a picture of how I feel right now, it would include a happy face, sad face, and a really big exhausted face. It’s been a weekend of nonstop activity and I would have it any other way. But the conference is over. Mother’s Day is over. And my mini-vacation is over. […]

2015 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration: Day 2


CONFERENCE DAY! Conference day at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration is always a day full of surprises. We’re surprised at what the program holds and surprised at what our families spend their time doing (mine went to the pool and Magic Kingdom). It wasn’t so bad, though. I got to see some of my […]

You’ve been closely following my tweets, Instagram pictures, and Facebook updates. You been watching and waiting for my video from Day 1.
