Visit Gulf County & Take a Walk on the Wild Side #GCFL


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Gulf County, Florida. All opinions are 100% mine. Fall is the perfect time to plan a vacation to Florida, and there is really no more exciting place for an adventure than in Gulf County! The gorgeous vacation destination is filled with white sandy beaches, mysterious bayous and wildlife encounters. With the slower pace and the “no worries, no hurries” attitude, it’s the perfect vacation destination for families. Take a look at the top five things to do in Gulf County (in my opinion!) and start planning your trip! Fun […] Read more »

What Insurance May Not Cover in an Out of Town Accident

Insurance out of town

There are all kinds of reasons people drive long distances. Work, vacations, and trips to grandma’s house can get us on the road and out of town. There are also festivals, sporting events, and social gatherings to lure us out on the freeway. The unexpected may cause us to stay longer than we originally planned. Perhaps the vacation was too good to end, or we were too tired to drive home from grandma’s house, or a bit too tipsy after the big game. Then there is the other reason that no one wants to think about. There may be an […] Read more »

Get Away with Choice Hotels Comfort Inn & Suites Mount Pocono

As a Choice Hotels Blogger, I received complimentary gift cards and a hotel stay. All opinions are my own. Last month, I took Jacob and my cousin on a mini-vacation for one last hurrah before the school year started, thanks to Choice Hotels. Originally, we had planned to go to the shore, but due to unforeseen circumstances, that didn’t work out. Instead, I took Jacob and Ben (14) up to Mount Pocono to stay at the Comfort Inn & Suites. We spent the first day at a water park before checking in (the only day that didn’t have massive thunder […] Read more »

Plan Your Dream Vacation with #RCIDreamVacay


After the month I’ve had, I am in desperate need of a vacation! Between the surgery, then the complications from the surgery, the 4 days in the hospital and the sheer exhaustion of recovering, I really just want to run away from it all. Note the “run away,” as in “hightail it out of town, turn off my phone and forget the rest of the world exists.” I did that a couple of years ago when Jacob and I went on a cruise. Hanging out with my little man and no distractions was pure bliss. We hit three islands, each […] Read more »

Turkey Hill Experience: Discover the Magic of Ice-Cream with Your Family #turkeyhillexperience

Turkey Hill What a Nut

I received complimentary tickets as well as payment for writing about our day at Turkey Hill Experience. All opinions are my own. Living in the Poconos, Turkey Hill products have always been a part of our life. To me, it’s a local company, as the farms and factory are less than two hours away. I didn’t realize that Turkey Hill products were sold in 49 states until our visit to the Turkey Hill Experience. I was always afraid that if I moved out of PA, I’d miss out on my favorite ice-cream and iced-tea! This past Saturday, Sal and I […] Read more »

Create Your Own 5-Star Vacation Story in Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico Skyline

This post brought to you by Puerto Rico, The All-Star Island. All opinions are 100% mine. About four years ago, I had the chance of a lifetime to go on a cruise with my son. We went along with my aunt, uncle and cousin. Jacob was 5 at the time. One of our stops on the journey was San Juan, in Puerto Rico. We were only there for a few hours, but I saw enough to know that I want to go back for a longer vacation! Exploring Puerto Rico for an Afternoon We had arranged a tour on a […] Read more »

It’s a Snowmageddon Reboot!

Snowmageddon 2014

Anyone remember Snowmageddon 2010? I thought it was a stupid name for it back then, but with all the hype over this week’s storms, it kind of fits now! First of all, where the heck did yesterday’s snow storm come from? The first person that says “the sky” is getting hit. Just saying.   I checked the weather on Saturday. It was supposed to be a lovely day yesterday. I was planning to go get the guinea pigs their pellets and grab some other stuff I procrastinated on over the weekend. Every morning, I look out the window before waking […] Read more »
