Annie Comes to Boston [Giveaway]

annie.jpg

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…

Margaritas Mexican Restaurant–Fall Menu, Taco Gigante, and Mexican Artwork

Apple Cinnamon Margarta

I love Mexican food, but Bug’s nut allergy has limited our options. When I realized I had a Margaritas nearby, I brought him to try it out. Honestly, the outside looked like a dive bar. I almost didn’t bring him inside. But once we stepped through the doors, we fell in love. Margaritas is colorful…

Celebrate Valentine’s Day as a Family on the Odyssey in Boston (Giveaway)

01_Boston_Ship.jpg

Do you do anything special as a family for Valentine’s Day? Do you get them treats or gifts? Have dinner as a family? I’ll admit… I’m not all that great about celebrating Valentine’s Day. I’m often out of town traveling for work and it’s not always easy to find something that’s kid-friendly. If you’re in…

Boston Ballet’s Nutcracker–Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice

Last year, LadyBug and I were treated to a tour of the Nutcracker Suite at the Ritz-Carlton in Boston. We were both captivated by the magic of it (it even inspired one of our Christmas presents that year), but I had context and LadyBug did not. The tutus, Nutcracker and giant bear were all just…

Traveling the Maine Coast on Amtrak’s Downeaster

Green Bee Ginger Buzz Soda and a whoopie pie.

I’m a big fan of train travel. I find it to be a relaxing way to get to your destination. You don’t have to worry about traffic, security lines, tolls, or checked luggage. You can move about freely, the bathrooms are roomy, and you can get a hot meal, cold beverage or snacks in the…

The Shoes We Wore Puzzle from Ceaco Supports One Fund Boston

Boston_3D_Box_thumb.jpg

One of my favorite ways to pass an evening while on vacation is to put together a jigsaw puzzle with my family. We do it every year. Now, puzzles make me think of warm summer days and gathering together. For many Bostonians, this is the same feeling that Patriots Day and the Boston Marathon evoke……
