Where to Stay in Anaheim Close to Disneyland and Knottsberry Farm

We received a complimentary stay to facilitate this article.  However, all opinions are my own. We recently took a 7 hour road trip heading to Anaheim to visit Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm for the first time. The kids were super excited! We took our essentials (17 suitcases and 25 duffel bags, just kidding...) and headed out on the road.  While preparing for this trip we scoped out some hotels and timeshares  to figure out the best locations to stay so we would be close to everything, including restaurants, shopping, and of course Knottsberry Farm and Disneyland. Our main concerns were: How family friendly is it? Is the location near restaurants and shops? How accessible are the rooms? What about parking? Can I cook in the room? Is there a Disney Shuttle? Is there …

How to Get Rid of Grey Roots in 2 Seconds

This post was sponsored by Gray Away as part of an Influencer Activation and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. When did your hair start turning grey? I just turned 48 years-old and I have terrible grey roots.  But the truth is that I inherited my ashy grey roots from my Greek father many years ago; about 25 years-old.  He was fully grey at around the same age as me. So, I have had to battle with grey hair for many years until I found Gray Away.   My poor hair has been dyed and fried from all the salon appointments.  Recently,  I decided I was not going to put my hair through this anymore and letting my hair grow out a little would …

7 Awesome Earth Day Crafts for Kids

Earth Day is every day around here, but the official day is April 22nd.  I did not grow up educated about how to keep a healthy, sustainable environment.  Recycling was not big in our house either, until I moved out on my own.  When I started college, I learned about  global warming, deforestation, and pollution.  Today, I take my kids to "beach clean ups" and we recycle, especially reusing boxes and containers to store toys and nick knacks.  I recently visited Costa Rica and planted a tree! It felt so good to know that I was making a difference.  The kids and I are always trying to find ways to celebrate Mother Earth.  Here are 7 Awesome Earth Day Crafts for all of us, specifically …

Keto Egg Fast Lemon Cheescake Fat Bombs

There are affiliate links in the post, which means that if you click on something and purchase it, I will make a commission. Lately I've been stagnant with my diet.  Part of it is because I cheated and went of course while traveling, which is easy to do. But now I'm back and ready to get back on the Keto bus.  I have given myself a few days to adjust but have recently discovered the 3-5 day Keto Egg Fast. What is an Keto Egg Fast? It's basically when you plateau while on Keto and need to kick start the weight loss by eating eggs and only eggs for 3-5 days.  Sounds fun, right? lol.  If you are intersted in doing the Keto Egg Fast, do some …

Where to Find Awesome Kid's Books for National Reading Month

This post was sponsored by Amazon as part of an Ambassador Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. It's official! The kids are back to school from Spring Break.  It's hard to get them back in their routine and my oldest especially, with the amount of homework that comes home every day. But like they say, "work hard, play hard." We went to Disneyland on our Spring Break.  It was an 8 hour road trip!  However, we took the essentials to keep the kids busy. One of our tricks was taking our Fire HD 8 Kids Edition. The kids love it.  This little gem really helps us with balancing our screen time, which sometimes, I have to admit, isn't easy. FreeTime …

Cook your own Authentic Costa Rican Meal at Arenal Vida Campesina

Cook your own Authentic Costa Rican Meal at Arenal Vida Campesina

  This trip was made possible through Il Viaggio Travel and Family Travel Association. However, all opinions are my own. I recently spent six days in Costa Rica enjoying everything the country has to offer through a family focused tour operator called: Costa Rica Family Holidays. We could not have truly enjoyed these beautiful sites without our amazing tour guide Luis Diego Soto from Il Viaggio Travel. We visited many family friendly destinations during our trip to Costa Rica, including Arenal Vida Campesina, a self-sustained, organic, cultural education center. There are many things to do at Arenal Vida Campesina and it makes for a great family destination where all ages will find something to enjoy.  You will learn about the culture and take an educational tour of this beautiful organic …

The Keto diet gives you lots of options to satisfy your sweet tooth, including cupcakes. Making keto cupcakes can be a little time consuming so I found a way to "get 'er done!"

5 Easy Ways To Calm Kids Down

This is a sponsored post for BookRoo, however, all opinions are mine. There are affiliate links in this post which means if you click on something and make a purchase, I receive a commission.  It happens in a split of a second. It only takes the wrong outfit or food touching each other. I've even listed reasons for crazy behavior in my article in the Huffington Post, 19 Reasons My Son Cries. I like to make light of it because, let's face it, we must laugh. Without laughing, I would not get through life. But the truth is, that all of it is very real. Kids have big feelings and sometimes don't know what to do with them. I can relate. But I have found some …
