6 Reasons We Visit Local Parks #OurLand

This post is brought to you in collaboration with MomDot Media and The Trust for Public Land, all opinions are my own. 

If you have been a reader of this site for any length of time, it is not secret that the boys and I travel a lot. In fact, we travel together about a third of the year, and most of that is travel spent outdoors. I love the great outdoors. I love to be outside, to explore new areas on foot, to step where past pioneers of our country have stepped and to breathe in the fresh air. I love fishing, hiking and getting my breath taken away by a beautiful sunset or remarkably peaceful site. This is a love that I am passing onto my boys. There are so many reasons that we love visiting local parks no matter where our travels take us.

15 Things You Can't Miss in Universal Orlando's New Diagon Alley #FLBlogTrip #Travel

There are no words to describe the looks that passed over my boys faces when we first passed through the enchanted entrance to Diagon Alley in Universal Orlando's newest Harry Potter addition. Awe and wonder took turns gracing their faces as they peered into shop windows, watched as magic literally happened right before their eyes from the wands of others, spoke with a goblin at the Gringott's Money Exchange, and watched the fire burst forth from the mighty dragon atop Gringotts Bank. We spent hours wandering the streets of Diagon Alley, and came up with a list of 15 things you can't miss when you visit.

Buca di Beppo Thanksgiving Feast - A Holiday Meal without the Mess

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Buca di Beppo® for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love Thanksgiving. I love it because my whole extended family comes together for four days of fun starting on Thanksgiving Day. Most of the time, we have not seen each other all year, and every second is precious. Unfortunately, preparing the Thanksgiving meal is an all day process that keeps the women busy cooking and cleaning up. How great would it be if someone else took care of the cooking and clean up and all that extra time could be spent with family? With the Buca di Beppo Thanksgiving feast, that is possible. Let them do all the work, and you get a delicious meal without all the mess.

Hot Cocoa Cupcakes with Marshmallow Buttercream Glaze #TimeToBelieve

Christmas if finally coming! Christmas time is by far my favorite time of year. I love the sights, smells and especially tastes of the holiday. Those holiday treats can really help you pack on the pounds though, so I look for simple substitutes that can be made to help shave off a little of the calories or fat and a bit of the guilt as well. These hot cocoa cupcakes with marshmallow buttercream glaze are not only adorable, but they are made with new I Can't Believe It's Not Butter®. With 40% fewer calories and 70% less saturated far than butter, they are a tasty bite that are a little less naughty, and oh so nice.
