This weekend we had the opportunity to visit Kennedy Space Center as a family. During our visit, we were able to experience the all-new Angry Birds Space Encounter that opened its doors this Spring. Being the huge tech lovers we are, the kids are well aware of the Angry Birds characters and couldn’t wait to experience the attraction.
We were invited as media to attend this special Busch Gardens event.
Busch Gardens® Tampa’s newest live stage show “Madagascar Live! Operation: Vacation” premieres on May 18 in Stanleyville Theater. Guests will party along the characters from DreamWorks Animation’s hit Madagascar franchise, including Alex the Lion, Gloria the Hippo and King Julien on a vacation adventure at Busch Gardens Tampa.
To celebrate the arrival of the laugh-out-loud, high-energy family show, the Tampa park will host a premiere party weekend on May 18 and 19, complete with on-the-hour dance parties and meet and greets, in addition to the show’s premiere.
The lively stage show encourages families to sing, clap and dance along to original songs and party favorites on a 20-minute musical adventure. Singers, dancers and a live band join the rollicking Madagascar characters as they amp up the party to full throttle. And as part of each show, guests can meet the characters following the performance in Stanleyville Theater, which has been renovated and is now an enclosed and air-conditioned theater.
This past week, my husband and I had the opportunity to dine at the Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Orlando, Florida for a wine and cocktail pairing dinner.
The focus of the meal was in honor of this year’s Kentucky Derby, and the celebrations that it brings. The Big Reds & Bourbon cocktail pairing dinner featured Bulleit Bourbon and premium red wines from Sterling Vineyards and BV BeauRouge.
The five-course menu was celebrated nationwide at 74 Ruth’s Chris Steak House locations. The dinner also marked the U.S. launch of Bulleit Bourbon’s new 10 Year Old, Small Batch Bourbon and feature courses developed in conjunction with Joey Altman, cookbook author and celebrity TV show host.
Here’s what was included in our five-course pairing dinner: [Read more...]
I’ve waited years for The Container Store to open a location near me. I love to organize anything and everything in my home, and my life. Thankfully The Container Store has only been a click away to help me from afar.
This week I was invited for a special tour of their new Orlando location across from the Millenia Mall.
A big thank you to Bella’s Bouncies for the promotional item!
This year we decided to combine the boy’s birthday parties into one. It just made sense with one having a birthday in Feb, and the other in April to plan a party for March. Plus at their current ages (2 and almost 5), they have all the same friends. So I asked the boys what theme they wanted for their birthday party this year. It was a silly question (since I knew the answer), but it’s always good to ask for their input. The theme was of course…….The Avengers!
And what was their big “must have” item? A bounce house! Since we were saving money by combining the parties this year I decided to get a grander bounce house by choosing the Castle Bounce House Combo.
