Five Travel Destinations for Fall Foliage

Summer can be the perfect time for BBQ’s, picnics, beach vacations and just lounging around in the backyard.  However, since the sun is setting on summer, it’s time to get ready to view the wonderful colors of my second favorite season: fall.  Fall is a season that radiates warm sweaters, knee-high boots, pumpkin spice lattes, and the beautiful colors of the changing leaves. The best part about living in the Hudson Valley is the ever-changing seasons upper New York has to offer.  From the … [Read more...]

20 Things I Wish I did on the Disney Wonder. #Disneysmmc

Disclosure: My family and I were invited to take part in the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration conference at Disney World and on the Disney Wonder cruise ship. We paid a fee to attend but also received special discounts and complimentary gifts. All opinions are 100% my own. I recently went on my second Disney cruise, thanks to the wonderful Disney Social Media Moms Celebration team. It was just as magical and amazing as the first one, if not better! This time around, I was 100% sure I … [Read more...]

{Review} Road Trippin’ in the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander GT S-AWC #DriveShop #DriveMitsubishi

Disclaimer: Thanks to Drive Shop and Mitsubishi, I was given the opportunity to test drive the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander for seven days. All opinions are 100% my own. Every time I get a vehicle loaned from Drive Shop, I make it a point to go somewhere miles away so that I can get a good feel for the way the vehicle drives and handles on the road. So that's exactly what I did; I took a small road trip with my youngest to New Jersey to visit my sister for the weekend. I was beyond grateful … [Read more...]

Disclosure: Thanks to Drive Shop for giving me the opportunity to drive the 2017 Mazda CX-3 for ten days.  Opinions expressed are always my own. I've said it before and I'll say it again - I love going on road trips.  I truly enjoy the adventure, the open road and the quality time spent with my loved ones. We can chat, crack jokes, listen to music and even play games. A few weekends ago, my family and I packed up the Mazda CX-3 and took off to Lancaster, Pennsylvania for a fun 80's themed … [Read more...]

Weekend Getaway to Hershey Park in the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 SE #DriveMitsubishi #HersheyPark

Disclaimer: Thanks to Drive Shop and Mitsubishi, I was given the opportunity to test drive the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 SE for one full week. All opinions are 100% my own. No monetary compensation was received. I'm accustomed to driving an SUV since I've owned a Kia Sorento for nine years so I wasn't quite excited about driving around in a Mitsubishi Mirage for a week.  Although I was definitely grateful to Drive Shop for providing the Mirage for our Hershey Park road trip, I really … [Read more...]

Back-To-School Shopping with the 2016 Mazda CX-9 Signature AWD @MazdaUSA #DriveMazda #DriveShop

Disclaimer: Thanks to Drive Shop and Mazda, I was given the opportunity to test drive the 2016 Mazda CX-9 for one whole week. All opinions are 100% my own. I dread back-to-school shopping every year like the plague! The running around, trying to score deals, comparing prices  and the crowds are not my thing at all. Heck - walking though the mall is not my thing neither but it's inevitable. It's something I must do.  I don't want my kids going back to school with nothing. What kind of mother … [Read more...]

A Relaxing Weekend at Mount Airy Casino Resort #MountAiry #MtAiry #MountAiryResort #ad

Disclosure: Complimentary lodging, meals and entertainment were provided by Mount Airy Casino Resort in exchange for my honest review. No other compensation was received. If you ask me, I believe all married couples need some time away from all the stress of everyday life from time to time, especially when kids are involved.  Don't get me wrong, I love my kids with all my heart and soul but there are times when I just need some alone time with my honey bunny without any distractions. We. … [Read more...]

New Year. New Start. New Adventures. #StreamTeam

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Netflix as a part of my participation on the Netflix Stream Team. All opinions are always my own. 2016. Another year. A new start along with new adventures on the horizon. I started 2016 with a bang! My sisters and I ventured over to Fort Lauderdale and Miami to celebrate my baby sister's 23rd birthday.  The trip gave us time to bond, laugh, eat, drink and just be ourselves. We had the time of our lives! We stayed a night at the Ocean Beach … [Read more...]

The Second Annual “A Celebration of Harry Potter” Begins This Week At Universal Orlando Resort

Have you visited Universal Studios to check out The Wizarding World of Harry Potter? Unfortunately, I have not.  I'm hoping to visit REAL soon though! The last time I visited Orlando, we didn't have time to visit Universal Studios.  I was in Florida for a press trip and time didn't allow us to visit.  But like I said, I'm hoping to finally see the park up close and personal. My family and I are HUGE fans of all Harry Potter movies so we can't wait to visit! This weekend, fans from around … [Read more...]
