Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker ~ Review

Disclosure:  I was provided with tickets in order to write this review.  However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.



I was so excited when I was given the opportunity to attend the Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker when it came to Chicago.  I have never been to a ballet before and it has always been a bucket list item of mine.  The fact that it was the Great Russian Nutcracker had me even more intrigued.  I grabbed my bestie for a girls afternoon.


I have to say I was very impressed.  Not knowing what to expect it was fabulous.  The music was beautiful with one of my favorite songs being the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies.  The dancing was spectacular.  This being my first time seeing a ballet I was amazed by their footwork and flexibility.  It was so beautiful to watch and flowed well with the music.  I loved how they had so many children incorporated into the show as well.



Although Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker has left Chicago for this year there are still tickets available at many venues across the country.  If you live in Chicago I say add this to your to do list for next year.  The little girls were twirling down the aisles during intermission.  It is a must do and you never know it may become a family tradition.  You can use the code JOY for up to $30 off your ticket order.

Store Brand Formula Unique Baby Sweepstakes ~ Giveaway

Disclosure: I was provided with compensation in exchange for my honest opinions.



From the moment you meet your precious little baby you know that that little person is special and unique in their very own way.  Every single baby is unique with their smiles, laughs, crazy faces, and those wacky baby hair-dos.  


I love seeing how my son gets so excited by the smallest things.  when he was little you could blow in his face and he would just laugh hysterically. I have always wanted to show him the world and provide him with the best life possible.  

While raising children is expensive, formula doesn't have to be which is why a majority of the time I chose Store brand formula.  Sometimes it would be Up & Up from Target.  Other days it would be Well Beginnings from Walgreens.  No matter which brand of store formula I chose I still had one happy, smiley, little baby.  

So dig through your computer and swipe through your phone to find your unique photos showcasing your baby for the chance to win some awesome prizes!!

Store Brand Formula’s Unique Baby Sweepstakes

When it comes to infant formula, many factors will help make the decision of what’s best for your baby, but the name on the container should not be one of them! 
What most moms don’t know is that the FDA strictly regulates infant formula to keep little ones safe, so store brand infant formulas, like Walmart’s Parent’s Choice and Target’s Up and Up, are nutritionally comparable to national brands like Enfamil® and Similac® and meet FDA standards, at a much lower cost to your family.

So essentially, the brand of formula you use is not unique, but of course your baby is unique.
To shine the spotlight on the most important part of the formula equation: your baby, Store Brand Formula is launching a “Unique Baby” Photo Sweepstakes in which the winner will receive $5,000 AND a year supply of Store Brand Formula.
Every baby is unique. Show us how YOUR baby is unique.  We’re looking for funny, silly, odd, crazy unique baby photos.

Is your baby making a really bizarre expression?
Perhaps your baby is making an angry face?
Or maybe your baby’s hair is sticking up in a funny way.
Whatever it is, we’d love to see it.

How to Enter
To enter the Store Brand Formula Unique Baby Sweepstakes, simply visit http://bit.ly/1Fd2i6y and follow the photo submission guidelines and the on-screen instructions to complete the online entry form. All entries must be submitted between September 28, 2015 – November 5, 2015.

Limit one (1) entry per person, per day for the duration of the Sweepstakes
  
One (1) Grand Prize winner will receive $5,000 and a one (1) year supply of the winner’s choice of Store Brand Baby Formula. Five (5) First Prize winners will receive $200 and a one (1) year supply of the winner’s c choice of Store Brand Baby Formula.

For official rules click here!  

I also have the chance for you to win a $30 Visa gift card for taking the time to come and read about this awesome sweepstakes, (which I hope you entered!).Just remember while every baby is unique, baby formulas are not!

Getting Closer with a Family Vacation

My absolute favorite thing to do in the world is to get away with my family.  Vacation is the perfect time to bond and get closer with everyone.  I think it is important to try and get away from home on a vacation because it makes that time even more special.  No work, no school, no chores, no grocery shopping.  Just quality family time 24/7.




My boys even tell us they love vacation so much because mommy and daddy don't have to go to work.  Time with each other is so valuable so if you are able, then take advantage of these few short years.  Since our boys are still young we usually go to Florida every year.  Its not to far and there is always tons to do and miles of beaches.



In May we went to Hollywood, Florida and I am thrilled to be heading to Orlando with them in two weeks for #FamilyForward.  Two trips is a real luxury and I am looking forward to having a super fun time with my boys before they head back to school, and my husband too of course.




When I found out we would be staying at the Loews Royal Pacific Resort I was ecstatic and I plan on surprising my dinosaur obsessed boys with a Jurassic Park suite.  It is a bit out of our normal price range but I figure this is a once in lifetime experience that I want them to remember forever.  I cannot wait to see the looks on their faces when we walk into our room.




#FamilyForward is 5 days of family activities with the fun of Universal Studios.  We have never been to Loews Resorts or Universal Studios so I am sure it will be a great family adventure we will remember forever.  The resort has beautiful pools and is walking distance to the theme park.  




So as we count down the days, (TEN more sleeps!!), I hope you are busy planning a vacation with your family or had a fabulous journey this summer.  You never truly know your family until you spend a week with them in a hotel room.  #TravelforReal
