What You Need to Know Before Boarding the Liberty of the Seas

This post contains affiliate links. Please see full disclosure here. My family and I just returned from a week long cruise on Royal Caribbean's Liberty of the Seas. This was our first cruise and we had a crazy amount of fun. We normally use our vacation time to travel to Disney, but this time we thought we would do something different and we are very glad that we did and already have our next cruise booked with Royal Caribbean. Before our cruise, we watched a lot of YouTube videos in hopes that we could get a better idea of what to expect when we went on our cruise. Through these videos and various articles by people that have been on cruises, we learned a lot, but we learned even more after we had experienced the cruise for … [Read more...]

Why I Keep Taking My Kids to Walt Disney World

This post contains affiliate links. Please see here for full disclosure. A few weeks ago a Christian blogger wrote a blog post about why she would no longer take her kids to Walt Disney World. I did not take the time to read her post because honestly, I didn't care but from the comments that were left on her Facebook page, I could pretty much tell why she decided to no longer take her kids to Disney. If you have not read her blog post, from what I have gathered from the comments that were left, it basically says that she is very upset after the release of Beauty and the Beast because she feels that Disney is pushing and promoting the LGBTQ agenda in this movie and fears that it will carry over even farther in other Disney performances. As … [Read more...]

My Very Honest Review of LuLaRoe Leggings

When I first started hearing about LuLaRoe leggings I had no idea what everyone was talking about. I had no idea what the big hype was and then all of a sudden I started getting invited to LuLaRoe Facebook groups. In addition, I had friends put their small business to the side, invest a ton of money and become LuLaRoe consultants. My mind was blown, I didn't even know how to pronounce LuLaRoe and these people were taking such a big step with this company. I kept asking myself if this was a real or a fly by night pyramid scheme. Even though I am not a fashion guru, I am a leggings guru so I was determined to learn more. I joined a few LuLaRoe Facebook groups and was speechless. My first reaction was, 'Am I watching the Home Shopping … [Read more...]

Toys Every Toddler Should Have

Texas Style Queso

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods, Inc. All opinions are entirely my own. I have lived in Texas all of my life and could never see myself living anywhere else. I have traveled outside of Texas only to want to come back as fast as possible. For me, other states don't seem to have the same type of flair for food that Texas has. No other state can create cheeseburgers and Mexican food like Texas can and no other state can create barbecue that will have you coming back for more. In addition, no other state has amazing music like Texas does. One way that my family gets ready for TexFest is by creating some of my favorite Texas dishes like my Texas Style Queso. My family always gets excited when it's … [Read more...]
