Hello my friends. Yes, I'm still alive. Yes, I'm extremely busy and not quite sure where to start. Yes, I have a few reviews and giveaways to post but I currently have 4 giveaways listed on my blog, so the giveaways are going to have to wait.
The reviews are being formulated in my brain as I type this.
Guess what? Well, for one, I screwed up and went to my local Walmart for the All You event one day early! Man, now I'm mad at myself! Earlier I was mad at EVERYONE. LOL.
The weather forecast said that the weather was going to be 85 today, 87 tomorrow, so I KNEW I had to get out and enjoy the weather. (I'm like a new person when spring hits!)
So the kids, my boyfriend, and I drove down to Baltimore to enjoy a day of discounts. (Alot of museums/attractions were offering discounts today and are tomorrow also, as well as discounted parking. You can't beat that!) We were going to go to Port Discovery (a local children's museum) but we were too late for what we wanted to check out, so we went to the National Aquarium instead. I've always loved going there and haven't been since I lived at home with my parents, I think. My kids have gone with summer camp programs but I was pretty excited to go back.
It started to storm as we decided to leave the city and while we were driving up I-95 it was like we were running from the storm, but we beat it and made it home and so far, I hear no more rain (although I did see some lightning earlier).
I also treated the kids to Dairy Queen, which we don't do often. My son and I both got blizzards and my daughter got a waffle bowl sundae.
I've always loved Dairy Queen and we used to go to it ALOT in Pennsylvania, specifically the East Liverpool, Ohio and Beaver, PA, ones. Moved here and no Dairy Queen! It took Maryland about 13 years to get one. Finally....and it's 2 minutes from my house!
Life is good.
Now it's late and I'm tired but I've got 3 reviews that I think I'm going to post.
What did you do today?
