This post is on behalf of Global Influence.  I was sent an assortment of Hershey’s Candy to utilize for baking, creativity, etc. as part of this post.  All opinions are 100% mine.  

Did you know you can win a HUGE assortment of HERSHEY’s candy?  Any look at my Pinterest boards, and you know that I have a slight addiction to the peanut butter/chocolate combination.  Then, you go to the Desserts page here on My Favorite Finds, and it’s confirmed.  My go to dessert combination is peanut butter and chocolate.  When Easter comes around, I am all over those REESE’s Easter Eggs.  Anybody else?  I LOVE them….even more so than regular Reese’s Cups.  Why?  I don’t know.

Magical Musts at Magic Kingdom for Preschoolers

Magical Must Dos for Preschoolers at Magic Kingdom #disneyside #waltdisneyworld #disneytravel

Preschoolers can enjoy so much at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park!   I am always telling guests that there is SO much to do as a family, and that YES in fact their 3 or 4 year old will enjoy every minute of their time-especially at Magic Kingdom!  How do I know?  Because we’ve been traveling to Disney yearly since the twins were 4!  And now that they are 10, and the little princess is 4, we are STILL enjoying so much of Magic Kingdom as a family!  That is seriously one of my FAVORITE things about Walt Disney World-99% of the attractions, you can enjoy as a family.  So today, I am sharing with you Magical Musts at Magic Kingdom for Preschoolers!

Easy Button Monogram {Little Girl Room Decor}

Button Monogram #easy #littlegirlroomdecor

Buttons and monograms are becoming my favorite things to craft with.  Almost every room in our house has some sort of a monogram project-I’m starting to think I’m a little obsessed!  My daughter’s room is slowly becoming my favorite room in our house.  It is so bright, cheery, and you can for sure tell a princess lives in it!  I created this Easy Button Monogram for her door, and it was so simple and fairly inexpensive. Best of all, there’s no sewing involved!  Win win!

Disney Resorts for Families of Five or More


Is your family a little bigger than the traditional family of four?  You know, like the two adults and two kids?  We are!  An that can be a challenge when finding a place to stay on vacation.  With over 20 resorts to choose from on the Walt Disney World property, there seems to be endless possibilities for accommodations.  But, not everyone is the traditional family of 4 traveling together.  We personally are a family of 5, so finding ANY hotel anywhere for the 5 of us can be challenge, especially now that the little princess isn’t in a pack and play anymore.  The first step in planning your Disney vacation is deciding which magical corner of the Walt Disney World Resort you’re going to call “home”.  So, today I am going to share with you Disney Resorts for Families of Five or More!

14 Things to Do With Kids in 10 Minutes

books on a bookshelf

I write about lots of kids’ activities, both here and on my own blog. I try to keep them uncomplicated and easy to do. But they still, generally, require you to spend a little time working with your kids on them. Sometimes that’s just not possible. Sometimes we have school drop-offs, and errands, and music lessons, and scouts, and other things and find ourselves with small amounts of unplanned time instead of an entire afternoon. That’s just life, and totally okay, too.

Here are a few ideas for things to do with kids in those small bits of unplanned time:

City Spotlight: La Jolla, CA {Travel Contributor}


Hi! It’s Jilly. All this snow has me dreaming of warmer climates! Come with me to La Jolla, California- today’s City Spotlight!

La Jolla (pronounced HOY-ah) is a fun town just north of San Diego. My hubby and I were able to visit a few years ago, and we had SO much fun!

After taking the short and beautiful drive up I-5 from San Diego, we stopped at the Birch Aquarium. They have great hands-on exhibits, and a beautiful ocean view from the hill the aquarium is built on. (I guess we like to visit aquariums on vacation, like our recent trip to Chicago when we went to Shedd Aquarium.)
