I had time to pay a visit to the Up on 20, arooftop bar in Manhattan on my New York City trip. It is set against an impressive backdrop of the Empire State Building and Freedom Tower, which offers cozy seating and pub-style tables.

 I quickly ordered a prosecco to wash away my busy day stress and enjoy the beautiful scenery. It was nice to sit, high above the city streets and watch the pedestrians. The lights and sounds of the city can be so busy and hectic this is the perfect place to take a break and recharge.

We decided to take our little knight to a Medieval Faire for some royal fun! Before we headed out I wanted to get him an accessory for him! We choose a Chain mail Cape from Great Pretenders.
 It is light weight, easy to put on and wear around. 
The fabric resembles real chain mail but not at all as heavy.

On our travels we stopped at the Skylon Tower in Niagara Falls in Canada. 
 We have always seen it from a far but never really went up to check it out. I suffer from motion sickness and I have always worried whether it would bother me or not.Luckily, I had no problems at all!
It takes a 52 second ride up a glass elevator to be 775 feet above the Falls.  
The views start to unravel as you venture up. The ride is so quick you barely realize how high you are until you walk out of the elevator.

 I was a lucky blogger who saw the Blue Man Group performance in NYC, July 16th 2015. Above you will see a photo from that afternoon! I did not know what to expect from the show. I have maybe heard it was musical and theater and that is about it.
It is a show with live music both traditional instruments and neat "pipe" creations! The blue trio have you moving in your seats from the very beginning with paint, recycled paper and humor.

Uninterrupted Night of Sleep

“I participated in an Ambassador program on behalf of Influence Central for Pernix Therapeutics. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”
I have been a work from home parent for years now. It was a move I decided fit our family best and just so happened to be something I also loved doing. With every job comes deadlines, responsibility and sleep-less nights. My mind runs wild with ideas as I grace the "wee" hours finishing projects and then the inability to stay asleep once I go to bed.  "Nearly 4 million Americans suffer from insomnia because there is a huge sleep problem in this country! What’s even more surprising, is that the most common symptom of insomnia is the inability to stay asleep, not difficulty falling asleep. I experience this nightly and I have to say sometimes I wake up more exhausted then I was going to bed. It’s a symptom that more than half of Americans struggle with on a regular basis".

Travel - Marineland, Canada

 **I received a free tickets to facilitate my review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the FTC Regulations.
Ever since I was a kid I have known the fun slogan "everyone loves Marineland! Growing up in a lower income home we could not afford vacation or many trips. As an adult I have worked hard to provide these opportunities for my son. For his sixth birthday we decided to take him to Marineland. He was so excited but secretly so was I!
After entering the front gate we decided to check out the King Waldorf Stadium Show. "It was described to have high-flying dolphins perform amazing flips and other awesome feats. We could marvel at the playfulness of beluga whales. Or fall in love with adorable walruses and enjoy the hilarious antics of their comical sea lion friends".
They were not exaggerating! This show is infectious from start to finish. The staff work diligently to incorporate entertainment by simply allowing the animals to play.

My six year old has been a country boy from day one! It doesn't matter if it is 100 degrees or negative below zero, he wants to wear his "barn boots". Because he wears them often we go through quite a few due to his ever growing feet size. We were in the market for a new pair and decided to try Ranyzany Robot boots!

We decided to take my son to Niagara Fall, Canada for his 6th birthday this year. It has been a tradition to celebrate as a family and this is where he decided he wanted to go! After arriving in Canada we parked our car at the Table Rock House and headed to Edge Waters Restaurant for some lunch!
 Conveniently located across from the falls and in front of the Skylon Tower! 
I was so famished from all the traveling that it didn't take very long to figure out what I was in the mood for. It was a bit humid so we opted to sit by the falls-view outside under the terrace.

#OITNB Season 3 - GIVEAWAY

Yum
**I received a free subscription to Netflix to facilitate my review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.
Orange is the new black has been on the tips of tongues for the last few seasons now. It strings across headlines, TV shows, newspapers for it's controversial and dramatic story lines. If you have NOT heard about this series, where have you been vacationing? It tracks the lives of women on the brink of coming undone in a dark comedy full of dramatic character development. At any given moment a main character can create a huge mess or plot twist to unsuspecting viewers and cell mates. For these reasons I am completely captivated, anxious and ready for what will happen next. This is a series you just cannot help but be addicted too.
