We were invited this past weekend to the LA Zoo Reindeer Romp where you can see live reindeer! This is included in the price. They have about five of them and you will find each of their names at the bottom of the gates. Their are docents there talking about them. It was incredible to learn that both male and female reindeer have antlers.Read More

We were invited to check out the Queen Mary Chill in Long Beach last week. This was our first time going and didn't know what to expect there. Everyone had told us how great the Ice Kingdom was, but I couldn't even picture how it would be keeping everything cold at 9 degrees inside the giant igloo. Plus for it being so cold inside would we really enjoy it? We came prepared with gloves, scarves, and jackets. Ready for the challenge. They give you parkas to borrow so take your time in getting it buttoned up so that you don't have to stop while inside trying to do it. Also you can take pictures inside, but don't leave your camera out too long as it is really cold and it can damage your equipment. Now check out the video I did in our walk through of the Ice Kingdom at Queen Mary.Read More

How I use Glade® Winter Collection to create my #BestFeelings this Holiday Season to get me into the #GladeHolidayMood
If your looking for a change from the standard round wreath and want to try something different, check out my super easy "How to" below.
Here is what you will need to make my Holiday Garland Door Trimming:
- Fresh Cut Tree trimmings OR Artificial Tree Branches/ garland (used in this how to)
- Bows, ornaments, bells, artificial flowers/dried flowers, battery powered twinkle lights whatever you may have on hand
Here's how to make this simple door Garland:
- First you will need Tree trimmings or Artificial garland. 3-5 pieces total
- Next arrange creating a fan like shape, laying one atop another.
- Secure tops about 2" down with craft wire and loop to create a hook for hanging. If using artificial the garland already has a loop at the ends.
- Add desired decorations securing along the way as needed. When using artificial use the garland itself to secure the decorations, it's all made with wire.
- Hang at eye level and enjoy!
The benefit of using artificial garland for this project is that you can reuse the garland year after year and just change out the decorations according to the theme or color you are going with. This door garland literally took me less than 15 minuets to put together and I used mostly things I already had on hand. So what do you think? Easy right. I would love to hear your feedback if you make one.
