Host Overnight Guests Like a Pro

I’ve hosted guests overnight multiple times over the years but since moving in September of 2017 I have not had any guests visit us (besides my mom, and she’s not high maintenance).  In a few months though that will  change. We are going with a handful…

Dubai Museum & Al Fahidi Fort

Butterfly World

When it’s chilly outside and we are busy, the kids do not get to play at the playground or outside in general as much as they typically want to. This last week I had to drop my husband off at the airport for a business trip and I…

See Loggerheads in Juno Beach

Since I moved back to Florida in October 2017 I’ve been keeping an eye on what other people have been doing. Not in a creepy stalker kind of way (that’s my husbands job), rather, I have been watching where friends and family have been going and…

Go on Safari in Florida! (Part 1)

Today I am feeling a little under the weather. My kids and husband have been passing gunk back and forth for weeks and I have finally be hit with fatigue and a yucky throat. I’ve got my cup  of hot cocoa and I am chilling at my kitchen…

New Years in Beautiful Destin, Florida

New Years came and went and I considered not posting about it. I did travel and see fireworks. But, it wasn’t the best trip and I thought it might be better to not mention it seeing that this is a travel blog and it’s typically more…

Have A “Fresh” Experience at Knaus Berry Farm

South Florida is getting a brisk New Year in 2018! The heat is turned on. I’ve got my electric kettle going and I’m going to do some more work on the blog and drink a hot cocoa. Starting 2018 I am looking back a week or…

Old Dubai Zoo

The new “Dubai Safari” has finally opened in the end of 2017! At the old Dubai Zoo in downtown by the beach there were signs at the entrance and a few places inside that said “#DubaiSafari Soon”. It is sad but also exciting that the old Dubai Zoo…

Northern Florida Bucket List

Northern Florida is just too far away for us South Florida folk to visit often. It’s still in our state but it takes maybe nine hours to get up there from the Miami and Fort Lauderdale areas. Forget about it if you live in the Keys, it takes…

Authentic Gelato in Pembroke Pines

In Dubai I was surprised to see Gelato in many malls as the main cold treat compared to traditional ice cream. I drank the gelato “coolaid” and it was delicious. I was surprised by how creamy it was and the fruity taste was strong and clean (you know…

Eat the World DXB

Each year there is an event that I feel is specially made for foodies, the Dubai Food Festival. With three kids in tow I was not able to participate heavily in the food extravaganzas but eat the World DXB sounded like a neat event to take part in. Eat the…

Go Inside the Gateway Arch in St Louis!

When I was young my family didn’t do a lot of traveling. We spent a lot of time at home during the summers and spring break. We did occasionally go camping in central Florida for Christmas when the weather was typically more dry and temperatures cooler. The first…
