Let the Summer FUN begin

Photo May 20, 06 35 42.jpg

Let’s be real, summer is here and the kids are out of school and if you are anything like me, I DO NOT want my child driving me insane all summer with boredom or video games. I have complied a mini summer guide to help make planning summer events and activities a little easier.

SUMMER DAY CAMPS

These are camps I have personally had Eli in and I loved them! I am all about activities and making sure Eli isn’t sitting in a building bored out of his mind waiting for me to pick him up. The below camps were fun, interactive, and affordable.

SUMMER FUN

If you are a working parent like myself, you may have that guilt inside of you where you wish you were spending the entire summer with your kids, I know I always feel so bad that I cannot spend the summer with Eli but I make the best of the schedule I do have. Below is a list of things you can do with the kiddos.

SUMMER BALLIN on a BUDGET

Budget? What’s that? LOL!! Having the kiddos at home means you are probably spending more money on food and activities. You don’t have to spend a lot of summer everyday for your kiddos to have fun. Below is a list of things that are either free, or at very low cost.

SUMMER SAVINGS

Here are a couple of cost savings passes that you can use to save money this summer.

Summer means happy times and good sunshine. It means going to the beach, going to Disneyland, having fun.

— Brian Wilson

Whatever you plan to do this summer, i hope you have a wonderful time and you get to make ever lasting memories with your loved ones. Happy Summer friends!

Let's PAR-TEE at Topgolf

Photo May 07, 18 21 42.jpg

If there is one thing that I can host, it’s a PAR-TEE and I had the privilege of collaborating with Topgolf Webster to host a Blogger event for some of my favorite Bloggers and Houston Latina bloggers. Topgolf exceeded my expectations. From the planning to the execution, I couldn’t have asked for a better place to host my blogger event.

experience

Our Topgolf experience was one for the books. We were greeted by our Bayhost Tyler who made sure we were well taken care of from start to finish. The Director of Operations Jeff Namkin came and introduced himself and made everyone feel welcomed to be at TG Webster. Billy, their golf pro swung by and helped all of us out on our knowledge of golf. This was some of our first times even picking up a golf club (and it showed lol). He taught us the basics along with helping us with our golf swing. Let’s just say, I can sign up for the Masters tournament now. We played, socialized, ate, and had FUN.

FOOD

As a “Foodie” (blogger who focuses on food) the food was IMPORTANT. I was quite surprised of all the food options and variety of options and dietary accommodations that they had. One of our babes cannot have gluten and some dairy and our bay host Tyler knew exactly what she could order and made great suggestions. We ordered a little bit of everything

  • Chips and queso

  • Pepperoni Flatbread

  • Topgolf Wings

  • Steak Signature Nachos

  • Jumbo Pretzel Board (THIS WAS PROBABLY MY FAVORITE)

  • Farmhouse Flatbread

Topgolf is perfect for

  • Date night

  • Family day

  • Kids fun

  • Girls night out / Boys night out

  • Group gatherings

  • Birthdays / group events / corporate events

Pretty much Topgolf is great for any occasion you you could think of.

STAAR Test prep with McDonald's

Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. It is what starts our entire day and what we put into our bodies is quite important. As a busy mom I am very guilty of just giving Eli a pop tart, a bowl of cereal, or something I can throw into the microwave for less than a minute. It happens, let’s be honest. It’s normal and you have no idea how many of us mom’s are running around like a chicken with our head cut off.

Something to keep in mind is on test days it is very important and crucial to have a high protein nourishing breakfast.

Next Tuesday our students will start STAAR testing. This can be nerve wrecking for your child and there are so many things you can do to prepare for Test day! Get enough sleep, give your child all the encouragement and positive vibes and A HEALTHY BREAKFAST.

McDonald’s wants to make sure that every student is provided with a breakfast that will have our kiddos test ready! Yep, you read that correctly, McDonald’s will be providing FREE breakfast to students from 3rd grade to 8th grade.
