Vacation Fun! Hollywood Wax Museum & Mirror Maze Review #ad

We received discount tickets to Hollywood Wax Museum & Mirror Maze to facilitate this review. All opinions expressed are our own. Who would have thought that seeing wax figures of famous people would be so fun!? Seriously though, this is our second visit to the Hollywood Wax Museum and my kids are already talking about visiting again! I guess you could say that the kids really get to use their imaginations and have fun while in the museum. There are props next to many of the celebrities that you can try on when posing next to the celebrity. It makes the photo so much more fun! Since we visited a couple of years ago, we decided to try to recreate some of the same poses. However, we were going off of memory, so the poses might not be exact. I just love to see how everyone has grown and changed from year to year and comparing the photos brought back great memories from our other vacations! Check out the post from our last visit to Hollywood Wax Museum & Mirror … [Read more...]

Must-See Magic Show in Pigeon Forge: Magic Beyond Belief #ad

We received discounted tickets to Magic Beyond Belief to facilitate this review. Al opinions expressed are our own. Our boys love magic! As a matter of fact, we have had several magic kits over the years, and they put those things to good use. There's just something about watching a child perform magic tricks for you. I think it's simply adorable and I love that they are putting their little creative minds to use. What is a vacation without a little magic? When we were on vacation in Pigeon Forge, TN we stopped to see Darren Romeo's Magic Beyond Belief show. My boys were super excited about the show and couldn't wait for it to get started! Let me just say that.... Darren Romeo’s Magic Beyond Belief show in Pigeon Forge is an amazing show! It's not just magic though...There were illusions, comedy, music and more! I even got to take part in the show! My boys were talking about the show for days (actually, they still talk about it!) I think this is our first official … [Read more...]

Turtle Beach RECON CHAT Headset #ad

Thanks to Turtle Beach for sponsoring this post. All opinions expressed are my own. As a Mom of 5 boys I often learn the ins and outs of things like video games. It might not be by choice, but my boys are always looking at the new and improved things that come out for the XBox and Playstation. One thing that we have found to be important is a great headset. There are seven of us living together in this house, and you can't always hear or pay attention when you are playing a game. The Turtle Beach RECON CHAT headset is great! Not only is this headset super affordable, but it's also lightweight as well. About Turtle Beach RECON CHAT: This lightweight and reversible headset features Turtle Beach's SpecsFit glasses friendly design with a unique open ear-cup that lets you hear game audio from the TV or home entertainment system in both ears (in stereo). There is also a high-sensitivity microphone that ensures your every command is heard loud and clear. The large 40mm speaker delivers … [Read more...]

Why I Won’t Be Stepping Foot In Kroger Again…

Disclaimer: All opinions expressed are my own. I did not receive anything to write this post, however I felt the need to share my story. Did the title catch you off guard? I mean, I'm the mom that boasts about how worn out my Kroger Rewards card is and how much I appreciate that they finally put a Kroger in my town a few years ago. It's true....I still love Kroger! But, you won't see me in the store near as often as you used to. Why? Because Kroger has this awesome new service called Kroger ClickList (<---You can read about it there)! I feel like they had the busy mom in mind when they created this. I don't know who came up with the idea, but I seriously LOVE YOU!!!! So, here's how it works. You go online to Kroger.com  and sign up for an account (if you haven't already done so. If you have one, just log in). Once you get there, at the top of the screen,  it will say Order Online. You click on that and on the pull down menu, click ClickList Pick up at Store. (Photo  … [Read more...]

Save Money on Kids Prescription Eyeglasses #ad #2017Spring

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of discountglasses.com as part of our Spring Guide. All opinions expressed are our own. I always knew that boys were rough and tough and that if I wanted to have nice things I had better protect them. Those wrestling matches can get pretty intense at times and even Dad has been known to break a thing or two! It's true, I guard things that I really love, but sometimes there are just some things that you can't protect when an all out WWE wrestling match is going on in your living room. Our oldest son has had prescription glasses since he was about 9 years old. Let me tell you, trying to protect those glasses when on the face of a little boy who thinks he's indestructible is NOT AN EASY TASK! He was such an active little guy and I just knew the moment we brought the glasses home that we were going to be replacing them often. Unfortunately, I was right. We have gone through so many pairs of glasses over the years with just … [Read more...]

Laugh Your Butt Off at The Comedy Barn Theater in Pigeon Forge #ad

Thanks to The Comedy Barn for sponsoring this post. All opinions expressed are our own. The Comedy Barn Theater in Pigeon Forge, TN Let me start by saying that this was not our first visit to The Comedy Barn Theater in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. As a matter of fact, we have such a good time at The Comedy Barn Theater that our boys insist we buy the DVD every time we visit, that way they can continue to watch the show at home. They were still watching our DVD from 2 years ago when we visited this time around. The comedy barn is a great night of family friendly comedy. Our entire family laughed our butts off the entire night! It's not just comedy either--- There are jugglers, a little magic, pets performing amazing stunts (for real---the kids will love this!), dancers, musicians and more! (Pictured above on stilts-Danny Devaney) And then you have that silly Danny Devaney! Just when you think things are getting good, he comes running out and you somehow manage to laugh even … [Read more...]
