    A Weekend at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino

      My family and I recently spent a weekend at the Westgate Resort and Casino here in Las Vegas. I was nervous at first with everything going on. However, after I saw their WestgateCARES program I knew we’d be safe staying. Honestly, we needed a good Vegas staycation. It’s been several anxiety filled months. We definitely needed a weekend getaway. “WestgateCARES is our enhanced health and safety plan, developed in response to the current COVID- 19 pandemic as part of our ongoing commitment to ensuring the health and well-being of all our guests, Team Members and the communities we work and live in.

    5 Tips for Driving Cross Country with Kids

    Last October, before COVID-19, my family drove from Las Vegas to New York. We rented a mini-van, and piled 4 adults and two young children inside. It took us three nights on the way there, and four nights on the way back. It was different then I thought it would be, but one thing that really helped was being prepared for anything. I’m not sure if I would ever drive that far again with my kids, but now I think I’m okay for a trip that we need to stop for at least one night. I came up with five tips for all my fellow parents who plan on driving…

    10 Things to do When You Feel Anxious

    One of the things I’ve struggled with for as long as I can remember is Anxiety. It took some time, but I finally am in a place where I can recognize my anxiety. In addition, I have things I know I can do to help myself stop feeling anxious. Normally, I wouldn’t talk about this stuff; however, with everything going on in the world more people than usual are most likely feeling anxious. I know how hard anxiety can be, because it feels like you have no control of anything. I used to get panic attacks that would last a long time. The first time I had a panic attack…

    Family Friendly Las Vegas: Black Bear Diner

    I’m back with another family friendly Las Vegas post. These are some of my favorite things to write about, because this is my city. Things are a bit crazy now with COVID-19, and I’m sure when the next time I’ll be able to post one these. Black Bear Diner is one of my favorite places to eat in Las Vegas. It really reminds me of a New York diner, which in turn reminds me of home. Every time my Mom comes to visit we go there to eat. Currently all non-essential businesses are closes in Las Vegas; however, Black Bear Diner is open for pick up and delivery. They were…

    Spring Clothing Haul (Preschool Age)

    Spring and warm weather is right around the corner. Especially here in Vegas where the weather is already reaching 70 on a good day. I thought this would be the perfect time to get started on their spring wardrobe and share with you all this spring clothing haul. I love all these pieces. They can be worn in a way that is still good for a bit of the chillier weather. They can also wear these pieces all summer long. This haul is all from Rockets of Awesome*. One of the things I love is that while I got the smaller sizes on their site all of these items of…

    Time is going by so quickly, and it’s almost time for DJ to start Kindergarten. Honestly, I can’t believe it. How has the last almost five years gone so fast? We didn’t send DJ is pre-k, but I have being doing homeschool pre-k. I’ve been making sure we’ve been preparing for kindergarten. There is still a few things we need to do to prepare for kindergarten as well. First thing is that DJ is technically going to be homeschooled.
