Hollywood Wax Museum Entertainment Center – Myrtle Beach

If you love to travel with family, I’m willing to bet that Myrtle Beach is on your list. My husband grew up there, we met there, Arianna was born there…so while it holds a special place in our hearts, we truly love vacationing there too. keep reading

Idlewild’s HALLOWBOO: A Pittsburgh Fall MUST!

The following post is a collaboration between ‘lil Burghers and Idlewild’s HALLOWBOO. In exchange for sharing this information with you, my family received four tickets to visit Idlewild during the event. All opinions are 100% my own. 

It has been a lovely start to fall in Pittsburgh, hasn’t it? With temperatures more like summer, I’m holding on to a hope that winter won’t be awful – will you go there with me? Yesterday was a perfect reminder of summer and we took advantage with a trip to Ligonier for Idlewild’s HALLOWBOO. The kids got a chance to do some “treating” and take on some of their favorite rides before the park closes. keep reading

We received the product discussed below (the Newppon Sports Armband) for free in exchange for a review, but all opinions are our own.

As Greg and I prepare to run the next big race (just about four weeks to go until the Myrtle Beach Mini), we are shaking out what nutrition, clothes, and gear will look like. Particularly the gear – we really need a good way to hold the phone to keep our pace in check. Off we went to find a good sports armband to fit the bill. keep reading

Tips for Packing Healthy School Lunches on a Budget

via Cher Murphy PR

Back to school means back to lunch preparation for parents around the country. It’s a challenge that many parents take on, but often struggle to keep healthy. While it’s easy to toss in convenient snacks, it’s not going to do much in the way of keeping their little bodies healthy and developing well. One pediatrician wants parents to know that sending kids to school with healthy lunches each day doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. In fact, she’s on a mission to help teach parents how to pack healthy school lunches on a budget. keep reading

Five RDN Approved After-School Snacks from Jo Bartell

## Our kids have always been snackers. Back-to-school will probably just bring on the snack gene even more fierce! Admittedly, we’ve not been the best at providing whole, nutritious after-school snacks because we have four different appetites and preferences. But honestly, how hard is it to insert a few healthy snacks into the routine? keep reading

I Tried Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening Trays – This is What Happened

This post is a collaboration with Smile Brilliant through US Family Guide. I received teeth whitening trays in exchange for my blog post review. All opinions are 100% my own.

Ever since I introduced coffee and nicotine into my life, my teeth lost the brilliant whiteness they had as a kid. For the past 17 years, I’ve given many different teeth whitening procedures a try – strips, pastes, trays, and LED lights. I’ve asked my dentist for life and gotten a second opinion, but no amazing results. When US Family Guide asked me to give Smile Brilliant teeth whitening trays a try, I figured it was worth another try. keep reading

McDelivery Day in Pittsburgh: Throwback to the 90s

While this feature is still relatively new to our area, McDonald’s has been offering this service at nearly 12,000 restaurants around the world for over two decades! This is totally worth celebrating with a party like it’s the 1990’s! keep reading
