Travel Tuesday-Keeping Kids Entertained and Parents Sane On the Road

***Disclosure-Sample products were provided for review.  All opinions stated are my own based on my experience.

This Summer we traveled the most we have ever traveled in our entire lives.  It was a learning experience for us as parents.  As a single mom, I rarely traveled when my son was younger.  And since my daughter was born, we had not travel too far.  But this year we took a family road trip from Texas to Florida, and what a road trip it was.

For kids, you have to pack things to keep them busy on the road.  I get board sitting in a car for a long time.  I play with my phone, we karaoke with the radio, and play I Spy or other games.  But with kids and some adults have short attention spans.  I received a Travel Pal and Stow and Go to review.  These 2 came in handy.  My teen and my toddler packed their snacks, games, and drinks.  These are perfect for everyday too.  My toddler likes to keep her favorite car items in them.  We use to have to pack items and unload them but now they stay in the car.  Whether it is a long trip for vacation or short trip to the grocery store, the Travel Pal and Stow and Go can really help with the organization.

Travel Pal™
Designed to keep books and toys neat and organized, it has a deep cargo bin for toys and lots of pockets for smaller things, too. It also has insulated drink holders and the entire cargo area is waterproof - just in case. Travel Pal fits between two child car seats and it's big enough to hold everything for both children.
Stow 'n Go™
Keeps everything organized and easy to find when you need it. Our seat back organizer does it all with seven full sized pockets and two drink holders in a washable, waterproof fabric.

Moño de Princesa #NoMoreTangles

***Disclosure-No compensation was received.  Informational post only.

Last week, I shared how to do an Elsa from Frozen braid.  But if your daughter does not want to be that princess it is ok.  Try this look:

1. Empieza el peinado partiendo el cabello verticalmente en el centro.

2. Luego comienza en la sien y divide una pequeña sección de cabello. Divide esa sección de cabello en dos partes y cruza la parte de abajo por encima de la parte de arriba.

3. Agrega cabello a la parte de abajo y crúzala por encima de la parte de arriba. Continúa agregando cabello y cruzándolo hasta que llegues a la nuca.

4. Haz una trenza estilo espiral con el cabello restante y asegúrala con una gomita. Repite el proceso en el lado opuesto.

5. Envuelve cada trenza en un moño flojo y asegúralo con ganchos según sea necesario. Y para el toque final agrega un lazo de color favorito.

Motivational Monday-When Calls the Heart, The Dance

***Disclosure-Sample product was received for review.  All opinions stated are my own based on my personal experience.

In June, I told you about the Hallmark Channel's New series, When Calls the Heart-Lost and Found
When Calls the Heart, Produced and directed by Michael Landon Jr. and inspired by the best-selling books by Janette Oke, tells the story of Elizabeth Thatcher (Erin Krakow), a young high society woman, working as a teacher in a prairie town in the Western Frontier.  When Calls the Heart is back with The Dance.

There are new miners that have arrived in Coal Valley.  Everyone is preparing for the reopening of the mine.  One of the new miners, BILLY HAMILTON, takes a special interest in Elizabeth and Jack becomes suspicious of Billy’s intentions.  Meanwhile Coal Valley is abuzz regarding the annual “Miner’s Games” as Jack continues to worry about the budding relationship between Elizabeth and Billy.  During all the festivities pregnant widow CARLA NOONAN has complications arise in her pregnancy.

I love all the drama.  And if you liked Lost and Found and wanted the story to continue, here it is.  Is someone stealing?  What is going on in Coal Valley?  I love the era, and time of this series.  All this rainy weather here just makes me want to curl up and watch these series over and over.
When I became a single mother I thought I had been dealt that hand and I just had to deal with it.  I was a mom and a dad, a provider, caregiver, and nothing more than 100% dedication to my son.  But we, mothers, are people and we need to DANCE!  Go to dances.  Accept invitations.  Stop and listen to the music of life.  A little enjoyment for a brief second does not make you a bad mom, and you should not be guilty of the time you set aside for yourself.  You deserve it!  Again, you deserve it.  No one told me this.  Make time for yourself.  Set an appointment in your schedule of things to do.  And Have fun!
