It is always national news when a celebrity announces she is pregnant. Some stars are more private when it comes to their pregnancy and children, while others share the journey with us from sickness to craving to birth. It is during pregnancy and once they become moms that we see celebrities are just like us.
Easter is almost here! What better gift to put in your child's Easter basket than a book? Or if you want to build the egg-citement for Easter you can read Easter themed books each night leading up to the fun day!
When planning trips in the past, typical Google searches would be, "closest restaurants" or "closest bars". But now, traveling with a 9 month old, the first thing I Google are "kid-friendly activities".

I am a lover of all things Disney, when I signed up for the Disney Visa Card my hubby wasn't thrilled as he said Disney would just find more ways to get my money through marketing to me via "card benefits".

I love holidays and I love celebrating those holidays. St. Patrick's Day is this Saturday and part of our celebrating has been reading holiday themed books. We talked about Valentine's Day books last month, let's take a look at a few St. Paddy's Day themed books this month.
Sofia the First is a Disney Jr. offering about a little girl who becomes a princess overnight when her mom marries the king of Enchancia and now she's gotta to figure out how to do it right. (So much to learn and see...) these half hour episodes often make you say, "hey isn't that..." in regards to charter voices and end with you Googling the episode to see if the voice you recognized is who you thought it was. Sofia the First gets a TON of guest stars and a lot of big names.
A few years back I was awarded the opportunity to travel out to California for a work trip. We would spend our working days in Oakland and work basically sun-up through mid-night. Due to a misunderstanding with out hosts, my coworkers and I found ourselves with an entire day free of work obligations. We decided to take the BART over to San Francisco and explore.
