Sherlock’s Escape Rooms


With a birthday to celebrate and no movies of interest, my mother, brother and I decided to try something different – Sherlock’s Escape Rooms in Florence.    Now, we’ve never done an escape room before.

Mom Report: Santa at Liberty Center Mall


I BELIEVE!!! Santa does exist and he is at Liberty Center Mall! From his rosy cheeks, beard, and “Ho, Ho, Ho!” I knew he was real and so did my kids. My kids patiently waited in line as Santa made every child feel special and gave them the time that they needed to share their… Read more »

Mom Report: Bass Pro Shop


It begins. I think it starts earlier and earlier every year.

Mom Report: Newport Aquarium


Recently, I scheduled a special day for my daughter. A day where she got to pick EVERYTHING we did from the moment we woke up.

I felt like my two-and-a-half-year-old was attempting to call my bluff on the “you get to… Read more »

Ninja Turtles. $1 Donatos pizza slices. Cincinnati Cyclones. OH, MY! A trip to U.S. Bank Arena for a Cincinnati Cyclones game is more than just a game. It is an event!
