Trying to save money on the Disney Dining Plan is not easy. It’s next to impossible to spend less under a dining plan then you would without prepaying if you just budget your money for the trip. To test this out, just give yourself a food budget equal to the cost of a dining plan and see how easy it is to come out ahead based on plan parameters. On the other hand, you can find ways under the dining plan to get a better value. That is to say, you can get more for your dining credit at some restaurants than at others. Many of the best restaurants in Disney World charge you two dining credits per meal, but some great restaurants only charge one. These are the top single credit table service restaurants in Disney World.

My family and I are true ice cream lovers. It doesn’t take much of an excuse for us to have it one way or another. While I usually stock the freezer up often from a recent grocery shopping excursion, we also sometimes go out to get ice cream as a treat.
That said, one of our favorite ice cream places is Carvel. Whenever we go to Carvel here, one of my girls always ends up ordering bubble gum flavored ice cream. This has happened so many times now that I have lost count.
So with summer and warmer weather on tap, I decided to make my own ice cream once again.

At the risk of sounding redundant here, after sharing my very personal connection cigarette smoking here, I was humbled and honored when I was asked to discuss the topic further here today in part by the Tobacco Free New York State and Seen Enough Tobacco Initiative.
See I have lived in NY State all of my life so far. Plus, I grew up around smokers in my immediate family. Again, as I previously shared about my father’s use of cigarettes from before I was even born through my formative years right up until only a few years ago.
Wasn’t Just my Father Who Smoked in My Family.
But not only did my father smoke cigarettes for all those years from the time he was so very young.

There is no secret on my blog that I am a mom to two daughters. My girls are growing up quickly. When I first started this blog back over 7+ years ago, my girls were still babies.
Now, my oldest turns ten this July. That’s right double digits! And my baby is already eight years old. So, we have been celebrating Father’s Day for quite a few years now.
So, my kids have pretty much run the gamut on ways to celebrate with my husband over the years. Therefore, I have a few suggestions for young kids to look for ways to indeed treat their dads this Father Day.
#ad Kid approved suggestions on celebrating Father’s Day.

The weather is only beginning to warm up here. I swear cooler temperatures and rain plagued us into mid-May here in NY. But finally, we had had some 70s and hear 80s are right around the corner.
So makes sense that I am starting to think summer, outdoors and backyard fun for my family. We have a beautiful size backyard. Our patio has our barbecue, family-size nation table, and chairs, as well as an umbrella to block the sun when need be.

Plus, we have tons of grass and even a section for our fire-pit, lounge table and more for warm summer nights, as well.

My girls love cotton candy. Any which way they can get it, they are all in for cotton candy. I mean they happily will eat cotton candy on its own.
But still, they also enjoy cotton candy if served with some of their favorite foods. In the past, I made Cotton Candy Milkshakes for them.
But my girls also happen to love cupcakes. So, recently I got this idea after being at Disney World. See Disney is well-known for all their awesome cupcake creations. Plus, during this past spring in Walt Disney World at China Pavilion’s Lotus House, the Spring Fantasy Cotton Candy—at Epcot’s annual Flower & Garden Festival has been a huge hit.

So, I have been having so much fun this past year shopping more for clothes for myself. Plus, I hang out on YouTube more and more now sharing my clothing hauls from online subscription boxes and more. Also recently shared my love for Jane for Mother’s Day gift options here.
Well, Mother’s Day is behind us. But now, summer vacation, warmer weather, as well as another Disney World family summer vacation is right around the corner for us.

My May Disney World Trip was a success on more levels than one. I also ended up buying quite a few Disney Parks items, which you can see more here:
But I am also on the lookout for more items to bring to Disney World as far as fun themed clothing.

Recently, we celebrated our dog’s fifth birthday here. I still cannot believe that our girl is no longer a puppy, but a full-fledged adult dog.
I can still very much recall that day five years ago that we brought her home with us. She laid on my lap whining for the whole car ride home.
However, those early puppy days do now seem like a bit of a blur and hazy to me. Back then, she didn’t sleep through the night and I had to walk her myself. Slowly, but surely that first year, she adjusted to her new surroundings. She trained pretty quickly and the days, as well as nights, got easier for that and more.
But now, over five years later, she indeed an adult dog.

Only a few days out from another Memorial Day. I am honestly hoping the weather is nicer than it was for the last so-called holiday with Mother’s Day. See this past Mother’s Day it rained the whole day, plus two plus days after it. The temperatures were downright unseasonal with it being in the 40s here in NY!
OK, maybe those 40s felt even colder for me as I was only in Disney World, experiencing 90 degrees a few short days before. But still, a high of 40 degrees in May isn’t normal for this time of the year.
I am longing for outdoor cookouts, 80 degrees and warmth to be honest.
