My husband and I have always traveled by car, so when we had our son, it only made sense to us to drive to our destinations. It is perfect because our son has special needs, so we can stop as often as we want. We travel on our own timeline.

Do you shop online? We have a child with special needs and shopping can be a challenge. One of the biggest reasons I love shopping online is that it saves me time and money! So, how do I save money by shopping online? In addition to shopping for sales and using coupon codes and discounts, I have another secret! I shop online and earn cash back at my favorite retailers!
We were offered the opportunity to visit SeaWorld Orlando. We’ve been to Walt Disney World a handful of times, so visiting SeaWorld would be a new experience for our family. My husband and I have both been to SeaWorld parks when we were kids. My experience was so long ago that I really don’t remember, I do recall it was the SeaWorld San Diego park! My husband vaguely remembers visiting SeaWorld Orlando when he was in school.
We just got back from a week long vacation to Walt Disney World. We also spent a day at SeaWorld. This was a much needed vacation as it had been 3 years and 11 months since our last visit to Disney World. During that time, we were always dreaming of a trip to Disney World but we were busy with work, school and life changes. I was working full time, changed jobs and then went back to being a full time stay at home mom and blogger. My husband went to work full time and also going to college. Our schedules were all over the place. So, when the opportunity presented itself, we decided to take a relaxing and fun week off!

When our son was diagnosed with Autism, I was ready to embrace the challenge.
When I first received an essential oils set years ago, I had no idea the health benefits they contained. The set of essential oils actually sat untouched for about two years because I had no idea how to use them. Fast forward to last year when I realized how beneficial essential oils are. Since our son has special needs, he will not take over-the-counter medicine when he is sick. Being an elementary school student, he is always bringing home something! He seems to be sick at least once a month! With that, I turn to essential oils because they are natural! I only recently discovered oil diffusers and now I am obsessed! I have one in our living room, where our son likes to play and one in the bedroom! As you can imagine, I enjoy using our oil diffusers to clean our air, add a beautiful scent, improve our health or boost our mood!
When we decide to buy something, anything, we do our best to think it through.
Do we need it?
Do we want it?
Will it improve our lives?
Will it be used?
When I first heard of Intellibed, I thought it was “just another memory foam” mattress company. Little did I know, I was completely wrong! Intellibed offers non-toxic mattresses!
As a mom to a boy, I am always ready for him to make a mess, destroy things and just be a boy! My son also has special needs, so I am unsure if his behavior is similar to other boys. He is the only child I am raising, so he is all I know. Whenever we receive packages in the mail, my son likes to “help.” He loves taking the boxes and the packing material and rip it apart and it ends up all over the living room.
