A Visit to the Ice Castle in Lincoln, NH

Ice Castle, Lincoln, NH

Last weekend, we bundled up and made our way up to Lincoln, NH. We weren’t skiing, or skating, or snow tubing. We were up there to visit the newly opened Ice Castle. It’s definitely a site to see! The first thing I have to say is that I expected caves. Based on the name and…

Geeking Out at the New England International Auto Show in Boston [Giveaway]

2015 Chevy Trax

When I bought my first car, my highest priority was that I didn’t want to haggle a lot over the price. Now that we’re a suburban family of four, my priorities are much different. When I got the invite to serve as a Chevrolet and SheBuysCars.com ambassador at the upcoming New England International Auto Show,…

Guest post by Carrie Edwards of Colorful Spark. Exactly one week before Christmas Eve, I was able to treat my 6-year-old daughter to a special event, attending Irving Berlin’s White Christmas on stage at the Citi Wang Theatre in Boston. I’ve watched the movie every Christmas season for as long as I can remember and…

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical [Review]

Last night, my dad and I slogged through rain and flooded streets to get my kids to see Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical in Boston. We could have used a sleigh with some reindeer assistance because the traffic was awful and we ended up a few minutes late. Luckily, we zipped into the theater…

Did you know that it’s the 50th anniversary of the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer television special? There will be a lot of celebrating this year for the famous reindeer and his buddies (I’m particularly excited about the set of U.S. Postal Service stamps), but what better way than to catch the whole gang live at…

Annie the Musical in Boston [Review]

20141105_181036.jpg

  We had the great pleasure of attending the opening night of Annie in Boston this past week. It started with the arrival of Isse Swickle as Annie and Gilgamesh Tagget as Oliver Warbucks via 1937 Packard. The two strolled the red carpet, posing for pictures and signing autographs before heading off to get ready…

Annie Comes to Boston [Giveaway]

I love musicals. I grew up in the kind of family that burst into song at the slightest provocation. It’s what we do. As a young girl, Annie was one of my favorites. Not only is the story and music age appropriate, but the idea that your fate could suddenly shift on a dime and…

Join Me For #FallFitness at the Microsoft Store

I am being compensated to help support and promote the Microsoft Store #FallFitness event. All opinions are my own. Just in time for the most candy-laden day of the year and, for all intents and purposes, the kickoff to the holiday season, Microsoft is inviting us to start (or continue) getting fit. On October 30,…

A Howliday Visit to Great Wolf Lodge New England

We recently made our first visit to Great Wolf Lodge New England via a media trip that highlighted some of their fall and winter in-house celebrations. I’m going to review Great Wolf Lodge separately, because there’s just too much I want to talk about, but the Halloween Howliday celebrations start today, so there’s no time…
