    Family Friendly Las Vegas: Black Bear Diner

    I’m back with another family friendly Las Vegas post. These are some of my favorite things to write about, because this is my city. Things are a bit crazy now with COVID-19, and I’m sure when the next time I’ll be able to post one these. Black Bear Diner is one of my favorite places to eat in Las Vegas. It really reminds me of a New York diner, which in turn reminds me of home. Every time my Mom comes to visit we go there to eat. Currently all non-essential businesses are closes in Las Vegas; however, Black Bear Diner is open for pick up and delivery. They were…

    6 Easter Outfits for Little Kids

    We are around a month away from Easter, and I figured it was time to start looking into outfits for DJ and Brooklyn. However, with everything that’s been going on with the coronavirus I decided that I’m going to my shopping online. I compiled a list of six easter outfits for little kids for you. There is three outfits for boys, and three outfits for girls. I chose three different stores and picked two outfits from each store. In addition, I like DJ and Brooklyn’s outfits to semi-match, or at least hav the same color scheme. Which you will see down below. Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links. I may…

    Family Friendly Las Vegas: Uptown Jungle

    I haven’t done a post in my family friend Las Vegas series in a while. I’m really excited to jump back into it.  I am a part of the Uptown Mom Squad which makes me an Uptown Jungle ambassador. That means that I am lucky enough to have been given a Family Membership to Uptown Jungle in Henderson. Uptown Jungle is located at 25 South Stephanie Street, Henderson, NV 89012. You can find info on their hours here, because they do different events on certain days that have different prices. For example, they have something  called Uptown Tot which we have gone to before.

    Spring Clothing Haul (Preschool Age)

    Spring and warm weather is right around the corner. Especially here in Vegas where the weather is already reaching 70 on a good day. I thought this would be the perfect time to get started on their spring wardrobe and share with you all this spring clothing haul. I love all these pieces. They can be worn in a way that is still good for a bit of the chillier weather. They can also wear these pieces all summer long. This haul is all from Rockets of Awesome*. One of the things I love is that while I got the smaller sizes on their site all of these items of…

    Preparing for Kindergarten

    Time is going by so quickly, and it’s almost time for DJ to start Kindergarten. Honestly, I can’t believe it. How has the last almost five years gone so fast? We didn’t send DJ is pre-k, but I have being doing homeschool pre-k. I’ve been making sure we’ve been preparing for kindergarten. There is still a few things we need to do to prepare for kindergarten as well. First thing is that DJ is technically going to be homeschooled. Our plan was to enroll him in the online public charter school here; however, they ruled to close it down after this year. That means until sixth grade he needs to…

    Products to Help Baby and Toddler Eczema

    I hope 2020 is treating you all well so far. I took quite a long hiatus right in the middle of Blogmas. Long story short; I got a terrible tooth infection and then my grandpa moved here. After that, it has been hard to jump back into it.  A few things have happened during my hiatus. First, my grandpa finally moved here. I’m so happy! Second, in the beginning of January I launched my YouTube channel. This post was actually a YouTube video first; however, I believe this will be a great blog post as well! I am sharing my favorite products to help baby and toddler eczema. I feel like…

    Creating a Homeschool Pre-K Schedule

     When deciding the what to do for DJ starting Pre-K we decided to homeschool. I’m a stay at home mom, and I used to be a preschool teacher. It was an easy choice. The hardest thing for me was to figure out a schedule to follow. Creating a homeschool Pre-K schedule took a little bit of planning. I wanted to figure out the right amount of time to teach. Another thing I needed to figure out was what to focus on. DJ is pretty up to speed with everything. The only thing he really needs to work on learning to write and read.  So that is there first thing I…

    10 Fall Outfits for Toddlers

    We are approaching my favorite time of the year. The time of the year where the weather cools down, the leaves changes colors, and everyone breaks out their hoodies. At least that’s what happens if you don’t live in Las Vegas. Here we will still be wearing summer clothes until the end of November. Growing up in New York it’s easy to imagine a real fall though. It always was my favorite time of the year. I compiled a list of 10 fall outfits for toddlers to get me in the fall spirit. So even if I can’t feel a real fall I can pretend by buying these outfits while…

    DJ’s Fourth Birthday Party!

    DJ’s fourth birthday was on August 28th, and his party was the 31st! He wanted a Super Mario themed party, and that is exactly what we gave him. This party is probably the first party we didn’t do any DIY for, and it was kind of nice. It wasn’t a huge party, because DJ still isn’t in school yet. It was a fun party though, and I know DJ had a great time. We made homemade pizza, chicken nuggets, and mac & cheese. We went to Party City for all of the supplies. They had everything Mario! The store by my house was out of helium so they made us…
