The adventure aboard the ride gives guests the feeling of riding the California coast, but once they reach the crest, it is a harrowing journey down the 1,339 feet of track filled with hairpin turns, twists and spins.  New to the Bo

Community Yard Sale - #Tustin, CA

    Community Yard sales are great for several reasons. The first reason is to clean and clear out your house of unused items, while making some money. Second reason is that you are able to find great items at a low price. Third reason is that you are helping the environment by recycling items.   Keeping a house clean requires getting rid of items not used or just taking up space. De-cluttering allows for your home to be more relaxing and inviting. For this reason yards sales are excellent. You make a little money for your unwanted items and your house stays clean.    One person's junk is another person's treasure. Buying at local yard sales you may find that it can be like looking for treasures. You may find things that you need in great condition for a low price. This may help you stay on budget and still have fun decorative items in your home. Yard sales can save you money on household items and toys. Buying at a yard sale can help save items from ending up a

Discovery Science Center - Bubblefest

Discovery Science Center is hosting Bubblefest until April 14th. Bubblefest is a very entertaining event for all to see.  This event has hands on experiments that bring life to bubbles.  Experiments include  "The Sheet of Bubbles", which placed a pole in a tub of bubble solution.  When you pulled the rope, a bubble sheet is created between the pole and the solution.  This experiment shows the effects of placing your hand on the bubble.  By placing a wet hand on the bubble, one can put it through the bubble sheet without breaking it.  Another experiment had a tray with bubble solution allowing you to create multiple bubbles that were linked together by blowing through a straw.  The kids really enjoyed the creative processes in these experiments.   Bubblefest made everyone in my family smile and they had a great time playing.  Everywhere you went, there were bubbles being created.  In this picture, my husband is reliving his childhood by making a giant bubble.  Our kids

DownEast Basics

  DownEast Basics tees are my favorite. I use them almost everyday. They go well under your sheer blouses or can be under a sweater to make a complete outfit. The basic Tee comes in different styles and colors. They just got a new colors in time for spring. I picked up the basic colors, red, blue and black. The store carries classic styles with timeless pieces like this polka dot blouse. It is great for the spring season. This blouse can go with a nice pair of jeans or fun skirt. But it is a must for your closet, if you like classic pieces of clothing. There is so many more styles in-store and online at Down East Basics . There is even great sales if you sign-up for their email mails.    DownEast Basics   The other great piece I found was this Navy Blue Lace blouse with buttons. It is very loose and comfortable. It comes in large sizes and others colors. The fabric on this blouse is soft and very comfortable. That is the reason I enjoy the clothing is the

#ACU-LIFE True Easy Syringe Review - BPA Free

A few weeks ago, I was asked to review the True Easy Syringe by #Acu-Life.  When I said yes to the review, I thought that it would be great for an emergency travel kit.   If you have to give medicine to kids, you know how tough it can be.  Those syringes from the local pharmacy are difficult to gauge the appropriate amount and dependent on your child's weight can be dangerous to their health as a result of over medicating.  There is no room for error when giving medicine to a child.  Giving the correct dose to a sick child is a must and with the #Acu-Life True Easy Syringe, it is the easiest way ever.  For this reason it made sense to add it to my emergency travel kit as this medicine syringe takes the guess work or worry out of giving your child the need dosage.  This week, I was reminded how important it is to be aware of our health.  Both my son and my mom needed medical attention and both of them require oral medication with a precision amount of medicine.  What seemed like a
