Summer is here! As the weather gets hotter and the calendar flips to June some states are slowly opening up while others have announced continued closures, either way chances are you and your family will be spending a lot of time at home this summer. I have compiled a list of items that will ensure you have the ultimate summer while staying at home.
Have you ever wanted to start a band? What's holding you back? Do you feel it it might be too late since you have your career, your family or middle-age just around the corner? The new web series, BAND LADIES proves it is never too late to find your truth and follow your passion. I had the pleasure of getting an early screening of the 6-part first season of BAND LADIES and let me tell you, it is a wild ride!
One thing I'm so happy my kids enjoy doing is sitting down and reading books. This is something we do nightly as part of our bedtime routine and it is also an activity we've been doing more and more during the day since we've been spending all of our time at home. If all goes according to plan, come the fall I'll have a preschooler on my hands and I've never felt less prepared for anything! I want to make sure she starts off on the right foot so I've been researching as many at home learning tools as I can to give her a jumpstart. That's why I was so happy to learn about Reading Eggs and the two amazing specials they currently running.
She's sweet (but she's also sassy), it's possibly she "got it from her mama" and that's why these 20 funny shirts are perfect for your little girl!

Paw Patrol, Paw Patrol we'll be there on the double.. Now that I've got your attention (and that song stuck in your head for the new few hours) let's talk Paw Patrol Live! This year the pups are touring two shows; Race to the Rescue and The Great Pirate Adventure. Check your local arenas to see which tour is stopping near you. The Great Pirate Adventure was the show near us and I was quite surprised by the performers and by the complexity of the storyline. Would this be too hard for my toddler to follow?
When thinking of goals for the new year one thing stuck out to me. Read more books. Since having kids, I stopped reading anything that wasn't children's literature. With a new year and a new decade on the horizon I decided this year I would read more for my pleasure. That's why I was so excited to be selected to join the SheSpeaks Book Club for the month of January and receive a copy of Kate Clayborn’s new novel, Love Lettering. My biggest gripe about Love Lettering is it doesn't have any pictures. The main character is a hand-lettering artist and speaks beautifully about letters, signs and fonts and I found myself longing for some small pictures or illustrations to see what she was seeing. That may be my biggest gripe but it certainly isn't my only one.
I grew up going to Disney. We went almost every other year and once I hit adulthood my trips tapered off (much to my chagrin). So I love consuming all things Disney via social media, watching movies and TV shows, collectors items, and purchasing gifts for (myself) my kids. I kept seeing social ads for something called Walt Life. An unofficial subscription box services that delivers Disney magic right to your door.
