A Day at Butterfly World

A Day at Butterfly World

I was given complimentary tickets to facilitate this article.  However, all opinions are my own. We went to Butterfly World years ago. My first son (Thing 1) and I spent a lot of time there.  It's such a peaceful, pretty place to explore. We went there about once a week for a while and would take our lunch and meet other mommies there too.  It's worth it to get an annual pass if you want to go more than once a year. There's also a park right next to it that's fun for the kids after they are done at  Butterfly World. We purchased the native pupae at Butterfly World in the gift shop.  We waited for the transformation at home. I wanted to take my second son (Thing …

A Day at Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens

A Day at Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens

I received complementary tickets to facilitate this post. However, all opinions are my own. I've never been to Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens but I have heard so many great things about it. Mostly, about the beauty of the gardens.  So, when I took my son, I wasn't surprised at the magnitude of beauty that was there. But I was surprised at my lack of knowledge about the history of Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens coming to be.  It's quite interesting! Driving up Yamato Road, I never thought too much about this street.  I never knew that there was once a Yamato Colony;  Japanese farmers living in present-day northern Boca Raton.  While the pioneering community of Japanese settlers is no longer here in Boca Raton because they …

4 Reasons to Upgrade to the Google Pixelbook

I have been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. There are so many tablets and computers out there, it's overwhelming when trying to make a responsible decision on what to purchase.  I always look for high performance and any way I can get my work done faster and smarter.  I also don't want something big to carry around with me.  I need something versatile too that can work with the kids being around.  Being a stay at home working mom, I have a lot to consider. So, I was checking out Pixelbook.  It is the new Chromebook that's the thinnest one yet!   There were so many bonuses to consider but I …

How to have a TMNT Party for a Four-Year-Old

This is a Sponsored post.  However, all opinions are my own.  There are also affiliate links in this post which means that if you click on a link and purchase something, I will make commission . I love doing Birthday parties for my kids.  It’s fun to organize, brings out the creativity in me and makes me feel like a kid again! Last year we had a very successful LEGO Themed party for my three-year-old.  This year he’s turning four-years-old and wanted a Ninja Turtle Themed party.  I can’t say I was happy he chose that, especially since he doesn’t watch it or even know what it is.  He must have heard of it from school or maybe saw his brother play a Ninja Turtle game.  Either …

Disney On Ice Presents Reach for the Stars is Now Showing

I was given complimentary tickets to facilitate this article. However, all opinions are my own. We had so much fun at the opening night VIP Experience at Disney On Ice presents Reach for the Stars.   This has to be my favorite so far.  It was such a great show. The boys got to meet Mickey and give him a hug.  They played and had sword fights and ran off the sugar that they ate.   And they got this awesome swag bag with Flounder. Disney On Ice Presents Reach for the Stars is in town from March 28 – April 8, at Sunrise BB&T Center and Miami AmericanAirlines Arena. We followed our dreams watching this adventure-filled show including beloved characters from Tangled, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the …

How to Make Keepsake DIY Easter Eggs Using 4 Items

This post contains affiliate links which means that if you click on a link and purchase something, I will make a commission. I recently when to an Easter Egg painting party.  It was fun and entertaining, and the kids had a blast.  Who doesn't like glitter and glue, stickers and dyes?  They really enjoyed it.  What a great tradition! However, I'm all about simplicity and purpose.  I like to do crafts that can be used for the future.  Maybe I'm just secretly trying to get mementos from the kids to save for later.  I'm very sentimental and appreciate it more when they make things I can save.  I'm not up for boiling eggs and making a mess.  The least number of items we use the better.  …

Taking on CityPlace in the New Mazda3 Grand Touring 4-Door

I was given the NEW Mazda3 Grand Touring 4-door and hosted for lunch at City Cellar to facilitate this article.  However, all opinions are my own. My mom came into town and when she comes into town... we shop.  And we don't just shop.  We shop until we drop.  So, I wanted to take her to a place that we've only been to once together, CityPlace in West Palm Beach. Since then, some new restaurants have popped up and the scenery has changed. We hopped into the NEW Mazda3 Grand Touring 4-door.  It was a treat from driving the SUV I'm always driving with the kids.  This car was fast and so fun to drive. I wouldn't use it as a family car, but my kids did like being in …
