Several years ago my kids really started zoning out on technology and before I knew it they had one serious bad habit on their hands. So I took action by giving each kiddo a screen time punch card.  I also posted 40 Things to Do If You Are Bored on my refrigerator and when they got […]

Eight Classic Road Trip Games (Free Printable)

My family took a lot of road trips when I was growing up and we did not have portable DVD players, mobile phones, or handheld video games to keep us busy. My mom had to be creative to keep me and my sisters from destroying each other and annoying her for countless highway hours. Like […]

Universal Studios Hollywood: Tips and Must-Dos for the Movie Lover’s Theme Park

I love movies. If you know me, you know that I quote movies (and TV shows) a little too often. I am not sure where this love started. Maybe it was with my earliest movie memories (E.T., Cloak and Dagger, Smokey and the Bandit). Most likely it was during my first visit to Universal Studios […]
