A Wrinkle in Time


a-wrinkle-in-time-four-upIs anyone else excited about the new upcoming movie ” A Wrinkle in Time“, which will hit theaters March 9? The Oscar-nominated director Ava DuVernay and actresses Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling. 




From visionary director Ava DuVernay comes Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” an epic adventure based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic which takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love.

Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light. Directed by Emmy(R) winner and Oscar(R) and Golden Globe(R) nominee Ava DuVernay from a screenplay by Oscar-winner Jennifer Lee based upon the beloved novel by Madeleine L’Engle, “A Wrinkle in Time”

I’m definitely excited to see what this film has in store with the phenomenal cast and exceptional script-based book. This classic has a hit written all over it.  Based on all the trailers youtube has, the film is definitely got my families attention, and can we just say anything Disney produces is always a hit.

New Movie Alert, I’ve been seeing a few trailers circulating on Facebook and couldn’t help but be intrigued.  I was a bit fascinated with this new sci-fi and did a little research. The movie is based on acclaimed best-selling Southern Reach by Jeff VanderMeer’s 2014 award-winning trilogy of novels, starting with Annihilation.

Lena, a biologist, and former soldier joins a mission to uncover what happened to her husband inside Area X – a sinister and mysterious phenomenon that is expanding across the American coastline. Once inside, the expedition discovers a world of mutated landscape and creatures, as dangerous as it is beautiful, that threatens both their lives and their sanity.
From visionary writer and director Alex Garland (Ex Machina, 28 Days Later) and based on the acclaimed best-selling Southern Reach Trilogy by Jeff VanderMeer, Annihilation stars Natalie Portman, Oscar Isaac, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tessa Thompson, Gina Rodriguez and Tuva Novotny.
Director: Alex Garland
Cast: Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny, and Oscar Isaac

After watching the trailers I have definitely deemed this as a movie experience I can’t miss.  It has too many exciting and beautiful elements that cannot go unnoticed.  Have you seen the Beautiful Shimmer and creatures that relic in the trailers?  In honor of the New Movie Annihilation, I thought it would be fun to enclosed a recipe that would be the perfect food for venturing into the unknown (The Shimmer), something quick, easy, and a non-perishable food.  Thanks to Baking-Ginger I was able to find a simple yet tasty recipe. It has all the perfect elements to keep one from going famish.

  • 1 tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 1/4 Cup Honey/Agave Nectar

Matilda Jane Clothing *Giveaway*



I just can’t tell you how excited I am that winter is almost over, and Spring is literally just around the corner, and you know what that means. Time for Heaps of Sunshine, Perfect Temperatures, Fresh Breezes, More Sunny Hours in a day, +Flowers+Flowers everywhere, Workouts Outside, Spring Cleaning, Recharging Trips to Nature, and Easter. Which is always the perfect time to make beautiful memories with my family.  


The Spring weather couldn’t be more of a perfect time to hunt for adorable outfits for my triplets. I have to admit that one of my most favorite things to do is dress up my babies.  As a Mother of Five, I know this time won’t last forever and there will be a day that they won’t let mom pick out their clothes.


When the opportunity to try Matilda Jane clothing, emerged I was so excited, I’ve heard so many good things about Matilda Jane Clothing. They have the sweetest patterns and color,  and the best part is they have matching accessories! It was the cutest thing to see them feeling so pretty and fancy in their Matilda Jane outfits. My girls absolutely loved their outfits.  Matilda Jane is known for their fun and cheerful patterns. Their goal is to bring happiness to all those who wear Matilda Jane

“It’s all about keeping a little girl… a little girl. Keeping her youthful. Keeping her spinning and twirling and carefree. And most importantly, bringing her happiness. “DENISE DEMARCHIS, MJC FOUNDER

I couldn’t agree more, it is very important to have little girls dress like “little girls”.  I am in no rush to grow up my sweet little girl and dressing them age appropriate is very important to me as well. Matilda Jane has clothing for all ages as well as accessories, and bags. With so many adorable and fun patterns that will surely bring a smile to your face.  


I had the pleasure of collaborating with Summer Huber, local Trunk Keeper #1577 for Matilda Jane. Her family moved to Henderson in 2006 following her husband’s Dental school graduation. Her husband bought a dental practice in Boulder City in 2008. Her family consisted of 5 amazing kids 3 boys and 2 girls, Hunter (18), Annalise (15), Thomas (12), Brooklyn (9) and Owen (7). At the time she was a SAHM, when her baby started kindergarten in 2016 that promoted her to become a trunk keeper for Matilda Jane Clothing. She wanted to share her love for the amazing clothing Summer had been buying her girls and even herself to everyone! She loved the way Matilda Jane made her and the girls feel when they would put it on, it was like they can conquer anything thrown there way, it was the feeling of confidence.
A lot of people out here in the West have never heard of Matilda Jane Clothing. I’d like to spread the brand name to our local Vegas moms! Matilda Jane is sold exclusively through trunk keepers. I am a trunk keeper. I would love to get my small business out there to our local ladies. I know they will love the quality of the fabrics and especially the way the clothing grows with your child. You can get years out of Matilda Jane, not just a season.  In the photo below you can see the same dress worn from 2013 to today in 2018! Dress, tunic than a top.
Matilda Jane Clothing has one overriding goal – to bring happiness into the lives of our customers. Our girls, tween, baby and adult lines are designed to bring a smile to your face every time you look in your closet or step out your door. Matilda Jane Clothing’s whimsical approach to texture, pattern, and color results in designs that are youthful, playful, and expressive. Our clothes are made with the MJC girl in mind – she’s smart, fun, stylish, and always 100% true to herself!
Matilda Janes founder always said
“It’s all about keeping a little girl… a little girl. Keeping her youthful. Keeping her spinning and twirling and carefree. And most importantly, bringing her happiness.”

My Disney on Ice experience


It’s that time again where you can follow your heart to the Thomas and Mack Center for Disney on Ice 2018. I had the opportunity to watch the spectacular show with my family opening night.   This year the show was just as amazing as last year.  The 2018 production added some new characters to this year’s line up and kept some classic ones for the kids and adults to enjoy. 





Just keep swimming with Dory and new pal Hank from Disney•Pixar’s Finding Dory as they set out to find her parents.

Cheer with the Emotions from Disney•Pixar’s Inside Out.

Venture to wintery Arendelle where Olaf and Kristoff help reunite Anna and Elsa and learn love is the most powerful magic of all.




See the Disney Princesses achieve their dreams through bravery, kindness, and perseverance.


Celebrate true friendship with The Toy Story gang.




 I personally love how they still include those classic’s Disney characters and songs, that I once enjoyed when I was a little kid.  Which will make for a perfect movie night with my son. I was a little bummed that Moana did not make it to this years to the show.  I am crossing fingers that it will make it to next years line up.  I think it would make the show even more spectacular.  





IMG_1982My son was so thrilled to see the gang from Toystory and hear his favorite songs. Even though it got a bit loud for him at times, he still had a blast.  I will have to remember to bring some headphones to help reduce the noise.  

Overall the show was fantastic the music, songs, lights, and ice skaters made the show unforgettable.  Seeing the kids dancing and singing along was inspired my little one to let loose and have some fun.  We definitely cannot wait until next years show.

It Takes a Winter’s Village

Green Valley Ranch Resort gifted skate rentals and also a fun swag bag for our family to try the new outdoor ice skating attraction, Winter’s Village in exchange for our honest review. Enjoy! 

Tucked in the corner of the Green Valley Ranch property is a winter wonderland with a lovely setting for an ice skating, s’mores building, family-focused experience. We love the upcycle of space usually reserved for the vineyard or small concerts. Larger than life ornaments, palm trees adorned with Christmas lights and topiary signage create a festive, classy escape. There are fire pits, cozy seating, bean bag toss and for mom and dad: boozy drinks to keep you warm from within. It is super cold these days and gloves, scarves and hats are a definite necessity! So much so, you can even purchase gloves at the concession stand… but consider wearing socks that are not only warm and long enough to cover ankles, but thicker and cushy since I overheard several would-be skaters mention their ankles hurting from the skates. I personally was Ok with the skates, but did not have them on long. They are not as comfortable to me as the ones I’ve worn at permanent skate centers, but way more comfy than ones I tried at another pop up, non-ice, skating place. 

Rentals are $20 per person and the trick is to find a pair that fit you just right. They are not the lace up variety, rather more like ski bindings. They didn’t have the cheater walkers to help novice skaters, but a lot of folks seemed like beginners so there is no intimidation factor whatsoever. Even my son who has been ice skating only a handful of times was confident enough to go around the rink without me holding his hand. I felt he was more at ease seeing adults having to hold the railings to make their way around. The music was a major motivating factor too as he attempted to ice skate dance to his favorite Christmas music. 

There is no entrance fee to visit Winter’s Village so even non-skaters can enjoy the holiday music, the hot chocolate and a gorgeous view of the ice skating rink while huddled beside heaters. You can also bring food from GVR out to the pool if you want something more than nachos,  hot dogs, chili and desserts like rice crispy treats and reindeer chow. 

We love it so much here! You really do need to bring all of your our of town guests here – Especially those who think living in the Las Vegas Valley is all about clubs and gambling; They will forget they’re here! If you are looking for dozens of stunning holiday photo  backdrops, and a less crowded location, this is going to be your favorite spot this winter! The hours extend when the kids are out of school for winter break too, so make your plans to visit! Tag us in your pix so we can see how much fun you’re having – We may just repost you on our pages! 

Thank you again to Vegas Lifestyle Influencers @vegaslifestyleinfluencers and Green Valley Ranch Resort @gvrcasino for the opportunity to try out your new holiday attraction. I hope this is the 1st of many years offering such a fun family-friendly experience for winter! We already love the pool during warm months, now it is a place to visit in the of season too!

Christmas Town For a Fun Family Night

We love finding places around the Valley to celebrate Christmas and the end of the year holidays. Following a short break after Halloweenville, Wet N Wild now hosts another off season family fun center – This time, Las Vegas Christmas Town! They are open thru New Year’s Eve and will only be closed 12/24 & 12/25 in observance of Christmas Eve and Day. 

The second you step in, you are immersed in a winter wonderland with festive music, tons of colorful lights and all things that evoke Christmas and the holidays. You can even catch a few of your favorite winter characters like Olaf, elves and even Santa himself! Santa has a cottage so you can visit and take photos with him. There is no charge to use your own phone for photos, but professional photos are available for purchase. Tons of photo opportunities throughout the park with thousands of lights, a 40 person train ride, a 40 foot tree and synchronized lights and music. There is even a life-sized nativity scene! I just wish it was lit properly because it was pretty cool…

A few things to remember before your visit:

The ticket window opens at 5p. If you purchase a Groupon ($15 vs the full $20) You should be able to go straight to the entrance. Bags are subject to security search upon entry.

It is getting colder and colder as the year comes to a close so please dress warmly, including hats and gloves as this entire experience is outdoors.

They have face painting included with your admission and the artist that night did such a great job with my son’s snowman and wreath. I liked it so much I was inspired to tip her.


We did not enjoy the skating rink since it is not real ice, it is about the size of half of a basketball court, so it got crowded  and we could not get used to the ill-fitting skates! We tried about three different pairs on my son, including some that looked similar to roller blades. He did not like any of them. We only went around one time, but we enjoyed watching others try it out!

The lines for the rides can take a little while so just be patient, everyone else is here to have fun too, and at least you can look around and appreciate all the decorations and of course, the music!

Frosty’s Snow Ball Fun is a hybrid bounce house-ball pit of all snowballs. So cute…The kids always love the bounce houses and we could have spent the entire night just there, but I am glad we didn’t miss out on a number of other attractions.

The only thing we wanted from the concession stand was hot chocolate and the seasonal funnel cake: mint chocolate chip. The gigantic, drizzled in chocolate marshmallows in my hot chocolate were perfect. Making the kids ice cream and funnel cake induced sugar high was probably not the best idea, but it kept them warm and fueled to run through the obstacle courses for about an hour.

The Jingle Bell Sledding Hill is super steep and extremely fast, which my son does not like, so we did not try it, but the music is always on point there and from all the squealing and giggles, you know everyone is having a blast!

Right beside the inner tube sledding, there is a walk-through 3D experience that was really cute. The little kids liked it so much (or wanted to put the 3D glasses on repeatedly) that we went through several times since there is no line. As you exit the short two-room attraction, you can see the snow falls right by there!

My favorite was Rudolph’s Save Christmas Shoot Out, the paintball gallery. We almost forgot to try it and just before closing, we spent the last 30 min there. This requires purchase of paintballs, the best value being $20 for 200 paintballs. I will gladly buy them the next time we go – I want to shoot too! My son used all 100 paintballs himself and had a blast with every shot. The shooting gallery has Christmas trees lined up with ornaments to shoot and a well-padded (I hope) character creeping and laughing as you attempt to shoot him or her. 

Ornament and cookie decorating requires additional purchase of ornaments and cookies, but all the decorating tools are available on tables beside the concession stand. I did not feel like standing in line for cookies so we tried the ornament decorating ($3). It is so cold out that it was hard to dry the glitter glue so I had to hold them all night – a terrible idea for the beginning of the night! They are cute little wood board ornaments, but we would likely skip that next time. We love the Tiny Tim train that is most suitable for five years and younger, but adults can squeeze in too. 

The wave pool is so pretty and still, like a winter lake view. I loved the cabanas decorated in spooky, horror scenes for Halloweenville and I was really hoping they would have made a little winter wonderland near the pool too. I kept thinking it would be similar to the Macy’s department store windows in NYC. 

As for the price point, I thought $20 per person seemed expensive (depending on how many people in your family) so I was glad to hear Groupon was available for $15. It did sell out that night we went so plan ahead! Overall, it is a great place if you love bounce houses, trains, holiday music and tons of lights. The rest is gravy!
