  • 7 Reasons to visit Mystic Aquarium in CT (Win 4 tickets)!
    Tweet I had been invited to Mystic Aquarium a few times since last year but timing and trepidation formed stumbling blocks. I have been traveling a lot in the past few years (understatement) and the fact that the aquarium is 2.5 hours drive away from me did not help. Each time I mentioned the aquarium I got so many oohs and ahhs about it I decided to suck it up and do...

  • Win 4 tickets to Amaluna by Cirque du Soleil + Get Discount Code! #Boston
    Tweet For as long as I have been a fan of live shows, there is something so raw about the talent that does not get to have edits and retakes, I have admired Cirque du Soleil shows but have never had the opportunity to see them. This time I’m hoping to make it to the latest rendition called Amaluna in Boston, but I’m also giving you a chance to win tickets...

  • Win 4 (FOUR) tickets to LEGOLAND Discovery Center #Boston
    Tweet I was an engineer for 12 years. My husband was also an engineer. Needless to say STEM was and is a huge part of our life. Lego is one of my favorite toy brands and one of the most respected. My kids had Lego when they were babies (yes there is Lego baby with no sharp edges) and then we went to Lego Duplo and now onto regular Lego. We have been to Lego at Atlantis...

  • 100 passes to a special screening of Blended!
    Tweet Drew Barrymore is one of my favorite actresses. I know I’m showing my age saying this (not like I care, I embrace my age) but she feels of my time. Everything from ET to Never been kissed, she exudes energetic without faking it. Adam Sandler may not be my favorite actor for silly comedies (to be fair I’m no fan of silly comedies, give me witty comedies...

  • Code: Echo! Coding challenge inspired by upcoming movie: Each To Echo!
    Tweet I am a geek! No, not those that tinker with games and gadgets and call themselves a geek, I mean the one who can actually code. As in code and get paid for it. In my not so past life I was an software engineer for 12 years. My husband was also a software engineer (yes my poor geeky girls are already programming – I kid you not) so you could say programming...

  • Kids Bowl Free All Summer Long!!!
    Tweet This will be the 5th year that I will be signing up for the “Kids Bowl Free” program. I know you think summer and think: OUTDOORS right. Well true but you can’t be there all day long. Sometimes it gets hot. Sometimes mosquitos try to join you. Sometimes the kids are pooped. Sometimes you are! Sometimes you want the airconditioning. Sometimes you want a cheap...

  • An interview with Katie Couric, Laurie David, Stephanie Soechtig, Dr. Mark Hyman #FedUpMovie
    Tweet You may have heard about the movie Fed Up, but chances are pretty good you have not. It is not a commercial movie and probably one that most of you (us) are scared to watch. It is a movie about the food industry and more specifically about food. The movie is PG rated yet I will be betting you that most parents will take their younger kid to see Captain America...

  • 7 reasons you should take your family to Blue Man Group (Win tickets!)
    Tweet Several years ago, while hubby and I were still dating. A group of his friends decided to visit Boston. Hubby and his friends lived in DC (yes long distance relationships are tough) and one of them insisted on seeing The Blue Man Group. As much as I was soaked in the Boston community I had never been myself so I was excited. Loved is seriously an understatement...
