Don’t Talk To Strangers in 2014

By

What Does Your “Don’t Talk To Strangers” Look Like in 2014? I am almost 40 – yep, not embarrassed to say it.  I think age is a state of mind and an adventure.  When I was 10, I remember some sort of big dog animal character coming to our school and talking  about safety with stickers and bags.  Things like “don’t talk to people you don’t know,”  “don’t get near the car if someone you don’t know is trying to talk to you,”  “don’t take food from someone you don’t know.”  The basics.  I also remember something about a razor blade in Halloween candy on the news at some point in time, but for the most part I was well cared for… I was watched after … I was rarely in a situation where someone could approach me. I also grew up in a big city (mostly) and my mom and dad would warn me about...

By

The Holidays have come again and they really came fast this year!  If you have the time in your Holiday schedule, here are a few 2013 Holiday Activities in Las Vegas that may make this season memorable for you and your family: 1.  The Ethel M Cactus Gardens – My family and I just visited the Cactus Gardens last evening.  We love going to the Gardens, walking the chocolate factory tour and purchasing, what I believe is, the BEST hot chocolate ever!  This is a quick event but really worth it.  Plus admission is free for the whole group.  Their lights come on at 5pm until 10pm through New Years. It does get cold, so I suggest wearing warm coats and gloves.  Check out times and information here.     2.  The Bellagio Gardens – What does the Bellagio have in store for you this year?  Bring the family to the strip and see the beautiful botanical gardens.  Make sure you...

It’s CyberMonday Where Are Moms in Vegas Shopping?

By

If you are like me, you love to shop online – convenience, convenience, convenience.  I am not knocking the wonderful feeling of walking around stores aimlessly browsing or trying on clothes – I love that!  But when I am looking for specific gifts, I turn to the web.  So, before Cyber Monday ends, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite online shopping haunts – some new and some old.  Enjoy! LATHER AND FIZZ –  Find your gifts before they sell out! – Lather & Fizz carries some of the hottest pajamas and candles on the market.  They also have adorable bath gift sets for kids and adults.  I was surprised to find how much the men in my life love the deeper, sexier KOBO candle scents – candles were not my go to present for men, until now.  My kids just love the surprise bath bombs and bath cupcakes.  I love Bedhead PJ’s and wear mine all...

Frost Bite Shaved Ice Las Vegas Locally Owned Frost Bite Shaved Ice in Las Vegas is giving away a family shaved ice gift certificate (value $20) to one lucky Moms in Vegas winner. Can you feel the heat coming on?  It’s warming up in Las Vegas – and now is the perfect time to quench your dry thirst with a spectacular shaved ice drink from Frost Bite! Frost Bite’s shaved ice is cool, refreshing and has the texture of snow that literally melts in your mouth!  Their flavors are out of this world, too!  One of my family’s favorite indulgences is a stop at Frost Bite. It’s next to impossible for my family and I to drive by Frost Bite without one of my kids shouting “Stop the car! There’s Frost Bite!” Then, predictably they proceed to beg for their favorite shaved ice -“Bomb-Pop”, “Grape Ape” or  “Sponge Bob”  until I finally give in, but not with much resistance I have to admit. Because...
