ICE! featuring Christmas Around the World at Gaylord Palms


Baby, it's cold outside!! You don't get to say that much here in sunny south Florida, but last weekend at the ICE! featuring Christmas Around the World display at the spectacular Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Orlando, we sure got to be cold and have a fabulous time while doing it too. 


We donned our own hats and gloves, and the parkas (which they provided) and braved the freezing cold just so we could see what all the happy fuss was about (everyone who has seen it loves it). It did not disappoint.

All 4 Disney World Parks in a Day. Should You?


Disney World has four amazing parks. Usually when we go, we end up visiting Magic Kingdom because it has so many favorites, everyone in our group loves it, and you can spend the entire there basking in it's glory. The other parks though are amazing in their own rights, and we wanted to at least visit the things we knew and loved (or suspected we would love), and since we were only there for one day, we decided to go for it! Our first stop was Animal Kingdom where they have the new thrill ride: Avatar Flight of Passage. My daughter has already been to see it and ride, with a group of friends (on a different day). None of the rest of us had seen it, so that was our first stop.

Just Visited Ripley's Believe It or Not! Museum in Orlando!

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

 

The building looks crooked, because it is crooked!!! Actually, it was meant to be your typical straight building, but a sinkhole decided to alter those plans. Fortunately, the architect and builder were talented enough to make it work anyway, and it ended up being just perfect for this type of museum, don't you think?

That's just the beginning of the weird, the awesome, and the oh my gosh! Three of us recently took a trip to the Ripley's Believe It or Not! Museum in Orlando, and we're still shaking our heads in amusement/amazement when we think about it. With an awesome collection of items to really be appreciated, whether you like them or not (some you will, some you definitely won't), this museum is a must-see.

$50 Best Buy Gift Card #Giveaway! Let the Holiday Shopping Begin!


Best Buy is always a favorite destination for holiday shopping. This year I'll be headed there to get a Keurig for my sister-in-law, a Nintendo Switch for my youngest, and a camera for myself. What? Who shops for themselves on the holidays?! LOL I can't help myself, there's no way I can walk into Best Buy and walk out empty handed. Their prices are reasonable and their selections are always the best (plus I need a new camera ;) ).

Foundation Fighting Blindness: Slow Down Age Related Macular Degeneration


Age-related Macular Degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in people over 55. But with treatment it can be slowed down, stopped, and in some cases reversed. That is a big deal. If there is any way at all, that is safe of course, to help prevent blindness, isn't it definitely worth looking into? I think definitely, yes!

Blindness played in a role in my childhood, with my grandfather having sight in only one eye during his latter years. It affected so many things, but he was a real champ about it, and honestly if he complained, I never heard him. I know he missed being able to see us grow like he had been able to before. With limited or diminished vision so many things are affected. Make sure you see your grandchildren grow! Protect your vision by requesting information about diagnosing and treating AMD.



Call the FOUNDATION FIGHTING BLINDNESS TODAY AT 1-800-BLINDNESS for a free packet on reversing or managing AMD. Or, go to the website fightblindness.org, where I found so much helpful information, or again, call 1-800-BLINDNESS today!

Rapids Water Park: 35 Water Slides and So Much More! BOGO Return Visit Free.


That is my daughter laughing a LOT on the raft. She had this bright idea that perhaps we should go to Rapids Water Park in Riviera Beach, Florida. Have I mentioned yet that she is brilliant? We had the most fun we've had all summer, and it's because this is no ordinary water park. Not by a long shot.

Merlin Entertainments Makes for a Magical Family Time in Orlando

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are my Merlin-Entertainments-Loving own!



Merlin Entertainments has these three great attractions, all in a row, that make for an awesome way to spend some time in Orlando. We went there recently and it was a great alternative to the hustle and bustle we usually voluntarily dive right into when we are in the area (theme parks, most generally). In fact it was so low-key that it was relaxing and so, so very nice. It was definitely an easy way to get quality family time in, away from the daily tasks of life, and w.o.r.k. (which I love and appreciate, but you get what I'm saying). You can select one to attend, or get a discounted ticket price if you go to all three!

Make Drinks and Meals in the Nutri Ninja Nutri Bowl Duo!



Have you ever used a blender, and it was just such a pain to use and clean that you tried it once or twice and then put it up and completely forgot about it? That's how I was until I tried out the Ninja brand a couple of years ago. I loved it, but gave it to my son and his wife, who had a big need for it. Now I have one of my own, and it's still as amazing as I remember theirs being! It's super strong, amazingly versatile, very easy to use, and a cinch to clean up!! Definitely not like blender experiences I have had prior to getting this brand, and truthfully this isn't even a blender, it's really so much more! So, my gift advice for Mother's Day this year (or for yourself if you would like it): Give her something she'll love and use all year round: Give her a Ninja!

Chef's Vision Knife Set - These are Fantastic!

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


I knew my new Chef's Vision Landscape Kitchen Knife Set was going to be one that I absolutely loved, and when it arrived and I got to use it...no even before I got to use them, I was completely enamored to the point of dancing around my kitchen. They are a visual delight! Each knife blade features a gorgeous scene from different places around the world, and has a matching colorful handle. These are high quality, razor sharp, 100% stainless steel blades, and in addition to looking great, these slice and dice just like you would want them to do.

These are NOT Your Grandfather's Haggar's! Enter to #win a Pair of Pants for Men!

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



My son is wearing his new Premium No-Iron Khaki Pants from Haggar. You may remember the name because these pants have been around forever (both of my grandfathers wore Haggar), but trust me these are not your grandfather's pants! Made with a no-iron fabric, perfect for this generation who is way too smart to spend time setting up an ironing board and wielding a heavy iron, they look good straight out of the dryer.
