Our LEGOLAND Florida Adventure: Part II

Thank you again to LEGOLAND Florida for providing our family complimentary park tickets in exchange for sharing our honest thoughts. All opinions shared are my own.

Hopefully, you were able to catch yesterday's LEGOLAND Florida post, which was Part I of our LEGOLAND Florida visit recap. If not, you can find LEGOLAND Florida- the Ultimate Experience for LEGO Lovers: Part I, here. We had an incredible day at LEGOLAND Florida, and loved every minute of each display, show, ride, and experience. LEGOLAND Florida was perfect for our little LEGO enthusiast, B (6 years old), and there were also plenty of fun things for Baby S (15 months) to explore and enjoy, making this the perfect day trip for the whole family.

Beat Summer Boredom with LEGO JUNIORS! #MBPSummerFunGuide

Thank you to LEGO for providing me with product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts are my own.

We just returned home from our last big trip for the summer. We have one more small trip to the mountains coming up, and then that'll be it until school starts. B goes back to school on August 15th, so we still have a few weeks to fill before he's back in the classroom. I have loved having my babies home with me this summer, but it has been a challenge to keep them both entertained while keeping my sanity. I have found that having planned activities for my son B (6) to enjoy through out the day has really helped curb his attitude and need for screens.

The "Why" in Parenting. Book Review on Raising Children: Surprising Insights from Other Cultures by Dr. David Lancy

Thank you to Cambridge University Press for providing this book for me to review. All opinions are 100% my own. 

I am many things. I am a mom of a lively three-year-old boy and expecting a baby girl any day now. I am also a wife of almost 8 years, an educator to adolescents and an admirer of all things historical. While I enjoy a good conversation about politics, parenting styles, and educational trends I find those conversations rarely end without a heated debate and myself wondering “why do I keep getting involved?” I have a bachelor's degree in history and masters in education and I feel qualified to engage in such conversations but as an extrovert that has grown into an introvert, I crave conversations where the focus is “why” and not about right or wrong.

Selling Your House: A Budget For Maximum Reward

In the world of real estate selling, the absolutist approach to getting the most money for your home is to in place the standard modern appeals that buyers want nowadays. The fair assessment of buyer’s psychology is that you shouldn’t have to pay extra for the extra bits. This is because there’s already a housing shortage across the Western world as populations continue to grow by immigration and people living longer. On top of this, the younger generation feels worse off from their parents with the task of getting on the housing ladder because their budget is a lot smaller. The next step in understanding the appetite and needs of general buyers is to market the conditions of your property and how it competes with the rest. Once you know your home’s value, you can then set about trying to nail down a comfortable price. However, there are some simple things which you can do to your home on a strict budget, before you call in a surveyor who will set the price via their expert knowledge.
