Our First Trip of 2020: Disney World!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

It's easy to get into a routine when you visit an amusement park, and that's what we seem to have done at Disney World. We start by going down Main Street, take a right towards Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin and circle around the park. We tend to stop at our favorite things and skip things we've never really tried. On our most recent trip, we decided to be deliberate about stopping to visit those things we usually walk by on a quest to get to the familiar. It was a good decision; adding an element of fresh to a visit we always anticipate.

cariPRO™ Electric Toothbrush Giveaway

This giveaway is sponsored by Smile Brilliant. 

We prefer electric toothbrushes to manual, they just make your teeth feel cleaner, and are powerful enough to get to those places manual brushes struggle to reach. That makes me an advocate of the cariPro. I am sharing this post, with a giveaway for an excellent electric toothbrush, for a friend!!! I have a link in the giveaway. Enjoy!

Your smile is the first thing that people notice about you! Do you have a bright smile? Over the years I have learned that having the right toothbrush matters.

I love having an electric toothbrush - but they can be expensive! So I am excited to share with you the cariPRO™ Ultrasonic by Smile Brilliant. It's an electric toothbrush that is half the price!



Introducing the cariPRO™ Ultrasonic by Smile Brilliant. Same quality, better features, and much better value. Considering an electric toothbrush or in the market for a replacement? Know what you're paying for.

We spent the last couple of days in Orlando and ended our trip with a visit to the Amway Center to watch our first NBA game in person. The Orlando Magic was playing the Brooklyn Nets, and I'm happy to say our team came out the victors. Bring on the Magic!

Zak Genesis: Heading into the New Year Hydrated!!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


My son plays hard, and in turn he has to drink a lot of water. It's not optional. He cannot play his best if he isn't hydrated properly. He is not the only one. You'll see most every child on the court carrying something to drink. We do see a lot of non-reusable plastic bottles left on the court, but this year, we are doing our part NOT to participate. As a part of the Healthier You & Healthier Planet campaign, we have made the commitment to only carry containers we can reuse. These Genesis bottles from Zak Designs are a great way to help us want to commit. They feel good in the hand, are easy to carry, nice and sturdy and they keep his water ice cold.

Ripley's Aquarium in Myrtle Beach South Carolina


We opted to go on vacation this year during Thanksgiving. My grown kids all have families of their own, and it's still my most favorite thing for us all to be together, but there are now spouses and significant others to consider, and they have things they want to do with their families too...so, off we went. I wasn't sure how the weather would be in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (having only been there once in the summer) in late November, but it was actually very pleasant. Sweatshirt/light jacket weather, in fact. That meant we were free to get out and roam a bit. Our hotel, The Caravelle, was right on the beach, so of course we spent some time walking the sand. We also ventured off to explore a few times, and one place we ended up was Ripley's Aquarium of Myrtle Beach.

Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach SC

This is not a sponsored post. Just writing about something we enjoyed on our most recent trip.


Sometimes when you wander around a place where you are visiting, you run into the greatest of things! On our most recent trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, we came across Broadway at the Beach and we loved every minute of it. In fact, we enjoyed it so much, that we went back again the next day.

Kitty Cardboard Gives All New Meaning to the Cardboard Box!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


So for every single thing that has a box this holiday season, and SO many things have a a box...the cat has decided to inspect them, and sometimes sleep in them too. Every.single.one. It's cute. So cute, that we have a hard time getting those boxes out of here and to the recycle bin!!! Honestly, we just want to keep them for her, but who wants ugly cardboard boxes hanging around in their living room? Not I. My tolerance level for them never lasted longer than when she would jump out to mosey around (or nosy around, I should say) another part of the house for awhile. She never seemed to notice that I took 'her' boxes away. She's pretty chill like that... and rolls with it. We really did hit the jackpot for finding a cool cat.

Custom Advertising Options with Banner Buzz

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



What's all the buzz about? Well, it's about this awesome website, Banner Buzz, that lets you make signs, banners, magnets, etc. I have utilized it to make a banner with a magnet on the back that stick to the door of my son's car. I wanted him to put his picture on it (you can customize them any way you'd like) but he ixnayed the icturepay. It's his business and his car, so I let it be. ;)  He opted instead to put the business name and phone number, getting the dual set that gives him one magnet for each side of the car. These are sturdy, high quality magnets for the car, that are going to withstand the weather and do their job well.

Wow that's Wild! T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station in Myrtle Beach

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



There is a place to visit in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, that you might not think of off the top of your head, but it is so worth the time to do: T.I.G.E.R.S. Preservation Station. We did the photo opportunity, which is one of the several options available to the public at Doc Antile's Myrtle Beach Safari. Two of the other big ones, which were not in season when we were there, are the once-in-a-lifetime day and night safari tours (children must be at least 6 to go on safari). Those tours are not inexpensive, but they were absolutely RAVED about by everyone who took them and shared online in reviews. The common consensus by those writing the reviews was that it is something they never thought they would be able to do in the U.S., and it was worth every penny.
