Road Trip with @CVS_Extra #GoldEmblem Snacks

Screen Shot 2014-08-17 at 4.09.50 PM

So last month, I talked about how I'm loving having CVS Gold Emblem goodies readily available on hand to take to the pool with my kids this summer.  Since then, we've also taken our CVS Gold Emblem snacks on the road for a vacation! Earlier this month, we rented a beach house with some friends down in Delaware and I knew that tossing some of our … [Read more...]

Cole asked me the other day how many weeks were left of summer vacation.  We got out the calendar and counted... and realized that we have 6 weeks left.  That's it!  This summer is flying by and we're already halfway there.  I feel like we just started. It's been a whirlwind of road trips, pool time and weeks and camp.  The weather's been great … [Read more...]

Day three of our family road trip and we're in the car from southern North Carolina and heading to Williamsburg, Virginia. GPS puts today's trip at a little over 4 hours. Hubby's cruising to some music, the kids are watching a movie and I'm playing on the iTunes App Store looking for entertainment. I found this free App from L'oreal called … [Read more...]

10 Easy Ways to Keep Your Kids Entertained on Road Trips

Only two and a half weeks 'til school lets out for my kids for the SUMMER!  I can't believe it.  And as every Mom can relate, I have that whole mixed bag of feelings going on - relief that I'll no longer have to pack lunches, help with homework and stick to the school schedule but also panic about what to do with them for the entire summer! One … [Read more...]

Top Five Favorite Rides at both Disneyland Parks #DisneySMMoms #California

IMG_2430

I'm a self-proclaimed amusement park wuss.  The only ride I go on the majority of time at any given amusement park is the nearby bench.  I know - I'm so lame! As my kids get older, the scarier the better in their opinion.  In fact, after a couple of trips to Disney World last year, I wrote this post on the Top 10 Scariest Rides in Disney World … [Read more...]

Hello from @Disneyland! #DisneySMMoms

Just a couple of fun photos that I wanted to share from Anaheim and our visit to Disneyland with the Disney Social Media Moms conference!  I'm writing today from the conference while Jon and the kids are off in the California Adventure Park doing their thing.  Clearly they're having a terrible time missing me - here they are on the Radiator Springs … [Read more...]

This time next week, I'll be in Disneyland!  My family is headed to the west coast to check out Disneyland and be a part of the Disney Social Media Moms conference next week.  I'm over the moon.  I attended the inaugural Disney Social Media Moms Conference when it started 5 years ago (in Disney World) and I haven't been back since. Look how … [Read more...]

My Dream Weekend in Philadelphia #VisitPhilly

Screen Shot 2014-02-28 at 1.49.02 PM

Flat out, I have to disclose that I'm totally biased with this post.  I live in the 'burbs of Philadelphia and have for the last 14 years so I pretty much think it's the coolest city around.  I just love it here.  I love it for a variety of reasons that aren't all related to tourism but I'll stick on topic with today's post.  But I did want to tell … [Read more...]

That Time I Was Tempted to Trade in my Minivan (Cadillac SRX Review!) @DistrictDrive @Cadillac

Screen Shot 2014-02-19 at 1.22.41 PM

  On a recent trip to Florida, we were lucky enough to ride in style with a Cadillac SRX at our disposal for the week.  The boys proclaimed they wanted to trade in our minivan and get one of these cars and I have to say, I was tempted after using all of the perks that come along with the SRX! I've been wanting to downsize for awhile and I … [Read more...]

3 Reasons to #Ski in Pennsylvania

20140201-145952.jpg

I'm not a native Pennsylvanian. I've lived all over and I moved here 14 years ago so while I call myself from Philly now, it's not where I grew up. So when hubby and I were first dating and he proposed skiing here, I was definitely wasn't sure what to expect in Pennsylvania.  Little did I know, there are tons of ski resorts to hit the slopes here … [Read more...]
