We woke up Saturday morning fresh as daisies- one of the best things about no longer being cool party people. GO US! We took our time getting ready, and decided our first meal of the day would be lunch at secret pizza inside the Cosmopolitan. Its not much of a ‘secret’ anymore… but it was still good. We found a prime location right outside of secret pizza with sofas and a coffee table to set our food on. It was the perfect people watching spot, near the Marquee pool party. Let me just say, of all the people watching locations… […]
I was hemming and hawing about buying passes when The Odysea Aquarium opened up. I thought my daughter might like to see the fish, but the Yelp reviews were all over the place and I couldn’t decide if it was worth it or not. When summer rolled around, they had a special deal for annual passes. $69.95 for an adult versus $34.95 for a daily pass. I do not think it’s worth the cost for the daily pass, at least for this age, but the annual pass is a steal. We have gone there almost every week this summer, because […]
The Ok Moms – Vegas Momcation Hey everyone! I divided our Vegas Momcation into two parts…. so lets get into it… Danielle & I traveled to Las Vegas for a girls getaway a few months ago for our first kid free vacation. The big question while planning was ‘what do you do in Vegas when you are mentally an 80 year old cat lady?’ THURSDAY We both got in Thursday late afternoon. Danielle picked me up at the airport and we went straight to our hotel- The Paris, for check in. My brother-in-law hooked us up and let me just […]
Dumbest Toys of 2017 I’m just OK in the momming department so I always let my kids go down every toy isle at places like Target or Toys R Us. I already know I’m raising spoiled and entitled children…so theres really nothing to lose. Plus its fun to see what has changed in the world of toys and what has stayed the same. There are toys like Calico Critters, Barbie, And LOL Dolls where, if I’m being honest, I want to buy them all and play right alongside my children…. And then there are those toys that leave me super […]
If you have children and you aren’t a total nazi when it comes to screen time, chances are you and your kids have watched at least one toy unboxing video on youtube. For those of you with social lives, the toy unboxing world is big business on youtube, and people make millions… yes millions, uploading these videos. Side note: why am I not pimping out my children making these videos yet? Ive become quite the toy video connoisseur and consider myself well versed in all the dumb toy and ‘surprise balls’ that are on the market. Most kids toys are […]
Ok toddler style – I’m back for another OOTD. We went and visited Amys Cupcake Shoppe in downtown Hopkins, and if you are local to the Minneapolis area… GO! I can’t say enough nice stuff about this place. The cupcakes are awesome, and I’m a tough critic… I usually hate the cupcake places people rave about ( I like to be difficult to please… obviously). I swear I have the unique ability to taste preservatives/chemicals in baked goods from miles away, Amy’s passed this test with flying colors. The best part about Amy’s is this cute play area. I had […]
Incredibundles Review: A Year of Diapers The best baby shower gift I received was a one year diaper subscription from my mother-in-law. Not having to worry about running out to the store, and not having to PAY for diapers for an entire year sounded amazing. With the Incredibundles “Year of Diapers“, you receive 12 shipments of diapers and can choose when you want the shipments, the size and brand, etc. The first box lasted only about 2 weeks, because newborns go through diapers every two seconds. As my daughter got older, a box started lasting approximately a month as promised. […]
