This post is brought to you by SeaWorld Orlando. While this was a sponsored opportunity, all content and opinions expressed here are my own. Growing up I remember my grandparents would always take my sister and I on a week vacation to Florida. Out of all the trips to Florida I’ve taken not once have I had the pleasure of visiting SeaWorld or Aquatica! That was until the week before school started this year! My family and I had the pleasure of going to Orlando to check out both parks. We decided we wanted to start at Aquatica, the water…

More people than ever are working for themselves, and more employers than ever are accepting people working for them remotely. This means that there is a significant part of the workforce that can be more flexible with their schedule and work from the comfort of their own home. For many remote workers, this gives them the opportunity to spend more time at home with their family, reduce the time spent commuting to work, or indeed,  travel while they work. If you are considering the move from the office 9-5 to a more nomadic approach to your work life, then you…

Each year my hubby and I try to go on at least 3 vacations. One in January to snowboard, then to the beach during the summer and lastly in October we sail away on a Carnival cruise. Needless to say we enjoy traveling! The process in which leads up to us booking consists of me scouring the internet for months scoping out prices and things to do. As much as we love to travel we try to keep each trip as budget friendly as possible! From the beautiful beaches in the Caribbean to the powder slopes in Boone our adventures…

The Ark Encounter Could you imaging living in the days of Noah and The Ark? A couple of weeks back my husband texted me on a last minute whim on going to visit the Ark Encounter, in Kentucky! Thankfully my job is pretty flexible because I was able to get the next three days off and it was Kentucky bound. To get to the Ark Encounter there is a short 1 mile bus tour. It was freezing the day we went mostly due to the wind so the warm shuttle bus was life! If you aren’t familiar with the Ark…

It’s no secret that my husband and I love to travel. From cruising to the Caribbean or relaxing on the beach in Florida, we love it all! This year we decided a trip to Destin was long overdue. With so many hotels and rentals, it was more than a little overwhelming trying to find the perfect place to stay. One thing I noticed while searching was the price. Everything seemed so over priced! That was until I came across Extended Stay America. This particular location wasn’t directly on the beach but it sure wasn’t far from it. We arrived around…

Did Someone Say Dinosaur?! This summer is going to be big for my family. I have something fun lined up for us over the course of the next two months. The first stop on our list was Jurassic Quest. How awesome would it be to have had the chance to live in a time when dinosaurs roamed the Earth? Although, it probably would have been just as terrifying as it was awesome. Once entering Jurassic Quest you are immediately greeted with dinosaurs both left and right of you. Gigantic dinosaurs that move and make noise. The detail of each dinosaur and…

Helen Henny’s Birthday Celebration Chuck E Cheese and friends are having a big birthday celebration for Helen Henny’s Birthday. If you missed my previous post, about Helen’s birthday celebration, you can check it out HERE. My gang and I had the pleasure of celebrating Helen’s Birthday. The celebration began as soon as we stepped in the door. I went straight to the register to order our pizza, get tokens, and drinks. To my surprise the manager, Daria (I hope I remembered that correctly), met us at the front and let me know our table was ready for us and that…
