Big Fish Games Gummy Drop

It is no secret that I love Big Fish Games. I have blogged about their games a ton. Every time and e-mail from them pops up in my inbox I get super excited. It was no different when they reached out to me this past month. I opened up my e-mail to see that they wanted me to review their newest PC game Gummy Drop. I am not going to lie. I got a little disappointed. I reviewed Gummy Drop for iOS when it as first released and did not enjoy the game. However I did make note that it would make … [Read more...]

As I child I had speech delays that had me taking one on one classes all through elementary school to learn how to properly pronounce different letter in the alphabet. Because of this I had my own words for daily things in my life.

Epcot

My mission was to visit every single theme park that Walt Disney World had to offer no matter the reviews. I remember visiting Epcot as a child and hating it. I was now an adult with 2 kids and a husband who had never been so off we went to Epcot to see it through a new set of eyes. I had planned the day in two parts which works out well since Epcot is divided into two main parts anyways, Future World and World Showcase. First up for us was Future World which is where all the rides … [Read more...]

Animal Kingdom

Disney's Animal Kingdom

When planning our Walt Disney World trip I tried to be strategic. I was travelling with the entire family and this was our first big vacation.

I had read everywhere that this Animal Kingdom could easily be completed in one day so it was the winner for our first park visit. Surprisingly we woke up bright and early even … [Read more...]

In May I went to Mom 2.0 Summit in Arizona. I had an amazing time and got to meet some amazing people. When I arrived at The Phoenician I was told I was staying in one of their casitas.

I was definitely staying in luxury and felt all rich and famous. As soon as I finished unpacking I skyped Tobei to show him the room and the view from my room. … [Read more...]
