Westward Look Resort in Tucson

Westward Look Resort in Tucson: Our weekend away!

My husband and I recently enjoyed a weekend staycation at the Westward Look resort in Tucson. While resorts are typically busiest during the summer, our fall/winter getaway was awesome! The Westward Look is a Wyndam property located in North Tucson. Resort offerings include a spa, tennis, horseback riding, hiking and biking, and four specialty gardens. Dining options include two restaurants, Gold and Lookout, and a breakfast cafe. We spent time on the patio at Lookout listening to all of the fun…

iPad Case, Dock, and Mount: Otterbox Agility Review and #Giveaway

Every once in a while products are created that make you think, “What would I do without this?” The Agility Tablet System by Otterbox is that product for me. iPads are known for being portable–they’re mobile devices. But pulling your iPad in and out of cases whenever you want to change what you’re using it for can be a pain. Otterbox came up with a pretty awesome solution for us: the Agility Tablet System. With Agility, you can house your iPad in a…

PowerSkin Portable Charger for Smartphones

It’s no surprise that I love portable battery chargers–I’ve been raving about them for years. Now that smartphones are like our right hands, I think it’s safe to say that portable chargers are like our left hands. When I find one that I like, I love being able to tell you about it. Lately people have been noticing that my phone looks a little different–it’s got an attachment. That small black box is a PowerSkin portable charger–the PoP’n 2 Battery…

Kia Sedona Parent's Review

Kia Sedona Parent Review

I think I should start by telling you that we’re not a minivan family. We’ve never had one, and I just don’t see us in one. But then the Kia Sedona came along and make me rethink that.   The Sedona didn’t feel like a minivan with all of the luxurious bells and whistles it came with. The boys have decided they want one now because it’s such a comfortable vehicle. While not looking like a typical minivan is awesome, that’s…

It’s a 2-in-1 tablet and laptop that’s perfect for our family room. We use the touchscreen laptop for the boys’ homework assignments, quick Googling and price checking while we’re watching TV, and lately, lots of Christmas…

What's It Like Inside Disney Animation Studio?

What’s It Like Inside Disney Animation Studio? #BigHero6Event

Press day at Disney Animation Studio was nothing short of amazing. Seeing all of the behind-the-scenes work that’s put into an animated movie is mind-blowing! From animations to voiceover recordings in the sound booth (you’ll see more of that later this week), there is so much work put into each scene. Walking in to the Animation Building, you can quickly see that the space has been redecorated to celebrate their latest film, Big Hero 6. There are even drawings on the walls…

5 Things to Know Before You Zip Line: Our experience with Skyline Eco-Adventures

Our Maui Zipline Adventure with Skyline Eco-Adventures

While we aren’t vacationing with little kids anymore, traveling with older kids brings struggles of its own. How do we keep them entertained for 10 days away from their friends? Will they want to hang out with us? What will we all do? After talking with the boys about what they envisioned doing on their vacation (because we realized that our ideas of vacation are very different), we decided that zip lining was something our family had to do! After searching…

2014 Kia Soul Review: Disneyland Road Trip

2014 Kia Soul: Perfect for a girls’ road trip

We recently spent a week with the Kia Soul, the urban hatchback car that it seems everyone is talking about. We used the Soul to drive around town, back and forth to school, and for a girls’ only road trip to Disneyland. My very favorite thing about the Soul is the panoramic sunroof!  The glass closer to the front of the car fully opens, while the glass towards the back allows light in. It’s the fun of a convertible without all…

Our review of the Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner

Our review of the Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner

This post is brought to you on behalf of Mom Central Consulting and Rug Doctor. All opinions are my own.  Can you see anything wrong with this picture?   If you asked me, I’d say this: Pens and markers on the carpet. Now, we don’t leave these on the carpet. Our dog, Grace, finds them and brings them here. She doesn’t take them anywhere else in the house–just here. And then she chews them. We often find her walking around…
