What’s Up Preppy?: Straight back to 1990 at Saved By The Max Chicago

No Comments Chicago, Featured, Grown Ups Only, Mama Loves, Sneak Peak, Travel

Last night was the coolest flashback. Hanging out at The Max and reliving all the Bayside HS memories we watched for years was awesome. For those who grew up in the 1990’s THIS was your show. You watched it religiously and soaked up every detail. (Not much has changed today as my pre-teen kids watch a few Disney shows and do the same.) Make sure you binge watch ‘Saved By The Bell’ on Netflix before you go to get to ready for the night too!

A Father’s Day Date: Hard Rock Cafe and the World Burger Tour

No Comments Dining Out, Florida, Lifestyle, Multi-generational, Orlando, Review, Sponsored

My Dad and I rarely get to spend Father’s Day together. The distance keeps us apart on most years, but not this year. My parents were visiting for a week to see the kids and I actually got some alone time with my Dad one day while the kids were at school. I decided to make a break for it and head to a restaurant that I knew he would LOVE!

The Balance. The Chaos. The Circus. – Walking the Tightrope of Life {More on Mom.Me}

No Comments Featured, Lifestyle, Personal, Published, Raising Children

“My life is a circus. No, really, it is a circus! A full-blown three-ring circus, complete with four clowns, a strongman and a ringmaster! I attempt plate-spinning and magic acts during dinner (making broccoli disappear is a good trick of mine) and the kids love it when the strongman (aka Dad) shows off his skills in the pool, as the kids become human cannon balls flying happily through the air.”
