Ten reasons why you would want to visit Virgina Beach

I am in need of a vacation!  Are you???

How about a fantastic trip to Virginia Beach!!!  Many of you know I live in Wisconsin so I would prefer to leave the state and see the amazing ocean and I think Virginia Beach would be a great place for me and my wonderful family.  

Here are my top 10 reasons why I want to go to Virginia beach and why you should too:
1. Stress-Everyone needs to get out of the daily grind and have time to re-energize away from home. What a great way to relax then to go fishing on a pier, soak your toes in some sand, and eat some yummy food!  :)   

2.  Build a sandcastle!  My daughter loves the sand and I know we could build one magnificent castle. 

3. The Virginia Aquarium would be a perfect day outing with our family of four.  I love learning about  all the animals of the sea and my daughter has shown a big interest in fish and turtles, but what is more exciting is the whale watching!  HOW COOL!  :) 

4. I know I can convince my hubby to go to Virginia beach when I say "SURFING LESSONS."  I think I will stay on shore with camera in hand and get some great photos of him learning the waves.  

5. A kayak adventure with dolphins!  I AM SOLD!  I have always loved dolphins so this would be an awesome adventure in my book.  

6. A visit to the National Aviation Monument, Francis Land House, or take one of the History Tours.  I think this would be a neat way to teach my daughter about our history.   Virginia Beach has a lot of history and I want to teach my kids about our history.  

7. One of the first dates that my husband and I had was hiking.  I think taking a hike up one of the trails at First Landing State Park or climbing up Old Cape Henry Lighthouse would bring back some memories of old past memories.  

8. GO PARA-SAILING!  That would be a brand new adventure that we have never done.  I am all for trying new adventures.  I think this would be a great hubby n wife date while on vacation!

9. Visit Mount Trashmore Park for the kids to have some fun.  It is a must to visit a playground when you have young kids.  

10.  No vacation is a vacation until you hit up a water-park!  I think our family would have a great time visiting Ocean Breeze Water-park, going down water-slides and swimming is a vacation must.

I could probably find 10 more reasons why I want to visit Virginia Beach but I think I will stop writing my list and start saving money in our vacation fund!  :) I love when I can find a vacation spot that has so many things to offer...especially for a family.  :)

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
