Queen Bee Market Review & Local Vendor Meet and Greet

My mother, Katherine and Aunt Mary pleased with their purchases!
Conference Center of las Vegas

Conference Center of las Vegas

I come from a family who LOVES all things crafts and DIY. Whether it’s homemade soaps, handmade seasonal decor, DIY signs and home decor, we will buy it or make it and maybe even sell it! So when my Mom and Aunt found out that the Queen Bee Market was coming to the Las Vegas Conference Center, I was all sorts of giddy!

                                  IMG_501217264613_10154485767302799_121928182983941720_n

 

 Walking into the Conference Center, we were immediately satisfied by all the eye candy. It was the perfect blend of modern, vintage and glam. Each Queen Bee facilitator was dressed in darling matching T-shirts and were there to greet you with a grab bag filled with handmade products and immaculate treats. And y’all, the booths! This was not your average craft fair where it almost feels like a community yard sale and the tables are covered by stained sheets. No, no. Each booth was its own 5th avenue merchandised storefront-just darling.

I was shocked to find out how many vendors were there from all over the West part of the states. I met talented women from Arizona, Utah, California and even Colorado and was nothing short of impressed by every single one of their creative and truly beautiful products. I wish I could have bought something from every booth. As much as I would love to talk about every single vendor and their products, this post is all about the amazingly talented Las Vegas local vendors and their stories.  

Wanna meet them?

IMG_5015Meet Nastasia. Even though I don’t have little babies anymore, I could NOT walk past this booth without “oooing and awe-ing” at all the sweet things. Nastasia makes stylish nursing ponchos and baby accessories. I was desperate to turn back time and use one of these ponchos while nursing and carrying  my boys.  Nastasia and her husband have 3 daughters and are Vegas natives.

 

 

 

Staysi Lee Bridal Boutique 

17264296_1341327125924013_1233935571899720049_n This is Staysi Lee. She is everything right about Vegas. Her hair, her style and her beautiful designs all reflect beauty and fun. She designs everything from infinity dresses, retro skirts to girls dresses. I mean, this cactus dress? Are you kidding me? She and her husband have a beautiful 5 year old daughter, Wynter who models most of Staysi’s designs!

 

 

 

Just Charms & Pretty Things

IMG_5017Lacey Cowan’s pretty charms and things have been our favorite at every craft fair we’ve been to in the valley, so far. Her handmade treasures are incredible and there is something for everyone. Lacey is a mother of a strong little girl and is accompanied here by a very helpful husband (which I love to see.)

My Mom and Aunt absolutely LOVE Lisa and Roxanne’s easy to use go-to recipe’s and my family and I love to consume them! These fabulous friends have worked together to create some amazing recipes without any additional preservatives, MSG or stabilizers- they even offer some yummy Gluten free options! 

 

 

 

Cultivate Floral+Paper Goods

IMG_5014Sara Lunn is a sweet soul. I spoke with her for about half a minute and knew she was as sweet as southern tea. Her Bouquets were stunning enough for a wedding event yet simple enough for a dining room table. Her paper goods are equally wonderful. You can find her next at West Elm for her Pop-up Shop on April 1st. Sara and her husband have a one year old daughter. Give it up for this talented and ambitious Momma!

I loved these matching mommas. Who loves chalk paint? Who loves renovations? Who loves home decor? Well these girls have it all and more! They are “Southern Nevadas plaster paint retailer” and they are PROUD of it. As they should be! Bravo, Ladies!

The next opening is Thursday, March 16th from 10-5pm. Or you can purchase products online any time at www.ambersumbrella.bigcartel.com 

 

 

BBFrosch

IMG_5023Kristin from BBFrosch is the reason Queen Bee Market came to Vegas from their prime location in San Diego. We couldn’t be more thankful for that! Kristin is the owner and developer of BBFrosch Chalk Paint Powder. Her painstaking journey through what it took to create an easy to use paint powder is why so many are flocking to her Workshops in 12 states! You can purchase the chalk paint powder as well as other products on the BBFrosch website. You can also attend one of the workshops to learn how to do it yourself!

 

 

 

 

I cannot wait to see all these vendors again at the next Queen Bee Market event! Will you be there too? 

Your welcome, Queen Bee!! Please come back soon!

You’re welcome, Queen Bee!! Please come back soon!

Red Rock Lanes: Summerlin

fullsizeoutput_15c0

Whether it’s Christmas morning, New Years Eve or 2am on a Monday morning you will find Red Rock Lanes open for business. Located in the Red Rock Casino, the bowling alley features 72 bowling lanes, a game center, bar lounge and Pro-shop for the pro-Bowler in your family. Want to make it a date night or night out with the girls? Get down in one of their luxury VIP lanes and suites, complete with bar service and cozy seating arrangements!  Do I hear a “Mom’s Night” anyone?

IMG_4431

As an amateur bowler, myself, I will say that this was one of the most pristine, clean-smelling bowling alley’s I’ve ever been to and the food just happened to be tasty! The bathrooms were not only clean but pleasing to the eye, the full-service bar and lounge was a nice treat for the adults and the chicken nuggets and fries were a huge hit with all my picky eaters. 

 

 

Toddlers with a show size under 11 can wear their own shoes!

Toddlers with a show size under 11 can wear their own shoes!

If you’re not a great bowler, or your children need a little extra help, bumpers and ramps are a great way to keep the ball rollin! However, if you happen to arrive during peak hours, the ramps may be hard to come by. If this is the case, ask your neighbor in the next lane if you can share. Chances are, they are a nice family willing to do so. If not, don’t fret, the bumpers will be enough. My two-year old son pushed his own ball down the lane just fine and my four-year old ended up not wanting to use the ramp at all!

 

IMG_4455

The big screens play all your musical favorites from past to present! Warning! You will break out into dance at least once in front of your children.

My husband and I thought the prices weren’t bad for being the largest and most luxury bowling alley in Las Vegas at nearly $2-$3/ a game plus $4 for bowling shoes. Cosmic Bowling is only $5 a game on Fridays and Saturdays from 6pm-2am. The prices for food and drink were what’s to be expected in a Las Vegas Casino, but well worth it as the food was delicious and the cocktails were on point. Have a picky eater? Step out into the Casino and find an array of different food options including fine dining and buffet!

Whether you’re planning a date, birthday party, girls night out, family event or just want to escape the heat, Red Rock Lanes in the Red Rock Casino have what you need to experience the best of what Vegas has to offer!

Hemenway Valley Park: Where wildlife meets playtime

IMG_0084

As a newbie to the Las Vegas area, I find myself getting excited about things that most locals have a “been there, done that” stance about. I get it! Having lived in some of the most tourist dense towns and cities in the US, I understand when what once seemed cool is now “meh”. But Hemenway Valley Park in Boulder City deserves our awe. Not only will you be surprised at its size (10 acres) with gazebos, basketball and tennis ball courts, 2 lighted softball fields and horseshoe pits you will find the park to have something for everyone! Especially the animal lover in your family!

IMG_0084

I heard about Hemenway Valley Park from a local animal enthusiast who said he frequents the area during lunch time so he can sit under a shaded tree and enjoy the amazing views of Lake Mead and watch the River Mountain Big Horned Sheep graze. I was skeptical at first, thinking the animals would be elusive or shy. We would probably drive all the way there and not see a single sheep… but I was wrong. As we pulled into the parking lot we immediately saw around 20 massive Big horned Sheep resting and grazing within feet from the children playing at the playground. My kids weren’t sure what they wanted to do first, see the animals or play! Since they couldn’t touch the animals, they gave in to their energized bodies and ran happily to the playground but kept a watchful eye on the wildlife.

IMG_0091

The playground is so/so compared to some of Las Vegas’s extravagant parks, but the views are unmatched. Lake Mead boasts as you push your child on the swing, the mountains offer an awe-inspiring backdrop as the children take turns on the slide and the Sheep, of course, offer a million different photo-ops as you attempt to get them in a picture with your child, the playground AND Lake Mead, which is possible; see picture below:

IMG_0085

 

Whether you’re on your way to take guests to experience Hoover Dam, visiting Boulder City for some antique shopping or just want to breathe in the fresh mountain air, make Hemenway Valley Park a destination and you will NOT be disappointed.

logo-2017-disney-woeCalling all Toy Story, Little Mermaid, Cars, and Frozen Fans. We’re excited! Just ecstatic! To share a great find with all our readers. Let’s talkPhpThumb_generated_thumbnail Disney! Our Blog had the pleasure of attending the Disney on Ice: Worlds of Enchantment for free. Now you may be wondering what is Disney on Ice? Or how much is  this going to cost me? Will my kids like it? Are the kids too old or too young? So what you should do is just take those questions and throw them out the window! This show is for all ages! My 5 year old son had so much fun and was engaged the entire time. Talk about Win, Win, Win… The only time he got restless or bored was during the intermissions. Which I personally can’t complain about. With the big crowds the lines to the food court and restroom were massively long. Which I later regretted when i decided to drink all of my yummy ticket-widget-headerLemonade. The show is priced perfectly. Tickets range from $15.00-$83.00 Talk about affordable! So if your interested in doing something fun this weekend with the family, I would definitely recommend attending the show at Thomas & Mack before it ends on the 15th. Disney really out did themselves with the art of skating and story telling you can’t help but want more in the end.IMG_3933 Encore Please! IMG_6981

A Very Terry Christmas {Show Review} Terry Fator Is Fun For All Ages

2016-12-01-02-05-03-636

We had an absolute blast attending A Very Terry Christmas at the Terry Fator Theater at Mirage. We received tickets to attend the show so I am able to report back to all of you! Perhaps you caught some of the highlights of our evening on Instagram stories, so now here is the play by play of our evening because you need to check out this limited engagement show and you can bring everyone. You may remember Terry Fator as the America’s Got Talent season 2 champ. The prize was a million dollars and his own show right here in Las Vegas. Who knew ventriloquism would be a hit with today’s audiences?!

I have a neat connection to this man so if you will indulge me for a moment as I harken back…

This is a Christmas show (& God Bless Terry Fator for bringing back the “Christmas” to our Happy Holidays! Ha!) with performances through December 22, 2016. From Monday through Thursday and select Saturdays, you and your family can enjoy 7:30p performances running approximately 90 minutes.

Roasted Bean quickie meal

Roasted Bean quickie meal

I ended up taking my 4 year old son as my plus 1 and he loved it – We both did! We parked in the garage on the 4th floor so we could walk directly across the outdoor bridge. Don’t forget to use your Nevada ID for free Strip parking! Just follow the signs to snake your way through the festively decorated lobby and atrium through some shops to the theater. I am always hesitant to bring children into casinos as I am not a fan of subjecting them to smoke and drunk people, but this was not bad at all! There was actually some conference folks who seemed to be streaming out of a late session so it was particularly G-rated. The box office is located in the hallway before the Terry Fator Theater and we got there around 6p – about an hour before the doors open (7p). This made ticket pick up super easy since there was no line. We had plenty of time to grab a bite at a little café called Roasted Bean just steps from the theater. Pro Tip: Blizz Frozen Yogurt is across the way so you can grab dessert afterwards too!

There are drinks available for purchase in the lobby, so you can fuel up before heading in. You will show your tickets to the ticket scanning staff members who greet you at the bottom of the escalators and then it is up to the theater entrance. It is a grand room and it already felt like we were at a party! There was Christmas music playing right when we arrived and as we made our way down the steps to our assigned seats, Rockin’ Around the

Mirage Hotel Lobby Christmas Trees

Mirage Hotel Lobby Christmas Trees

Christmas Tree was on and JJ immediately squealed which made me then realized it was his favorite song playing (he has been practicing for his Christmas show!) As we reached our row, I was informed that I could ask for a booster seat for my son. He was telling me he was OK, he liked his seat how it was, but when the usher brought us a red velvet covered foam cushion that blended perfectly with the seats, and it gave him a better view, he was super excited and happily complied! The DJ, show opener, Ben Harris was hilarious and kept everyone excited and cheering and clapping. He has an awesome ‘evolution of dance’ number to ramp things up and the crowd got super hyped up just as our headliner host was about to arrive. The couple in front of us seemed to have had their fair share of adult slushies from the lobby and they were extra interactive, which I loved! I actually felt a wave of calm come over me. I always tense up when I take JJ to places we have never been since I cannot predict how he is going to react. He did great and I know it was because of such a relaxed, informal atmosphere.

There was plenty to look at with lots of light changes, upbeat holiday sounds, a comfortable atmosphere as dictated by our gracious host, Terry Fator… His lovely wife of one year is his assistant on stage and the DJ, Ben Harris is a great dancer, comic and helper too. The band really completes the set and despite being in the 6th row, I did not find myself needing ear plugs and not once did my son remark that it was too loud. I honestly felt like we had the best seats because we were close, but not craning our necks and we could see both jumbo monitors if we really wanted an up close feel. The screens across the back of the stage are constantly changing with scenes to compliment what’s going on in the show or to accent songs. A new stocking is hung each time a new guest arrives. 


Now for the main event… Terry Fator is simply the most talented entertainer I have ever seen. He sings, he does spot on, goose-bump activating impressions AND he is a brilliant ventriloquist. There is some adult humor, but he never uses foul language and even his jokes are perfectly framed so as to go right over the heads of unintended audience members. It is absolutely fantastic and I cannot rave enough about his show. Granted, I was a fan before, I have not seen his non-seasonal show yet (because I’m a local and that is what we do!) If you are a fan of holiday music, you must see this show. I am definitely making this a tradition every year from now on, because this was the perfect way to get in the Christmas spirit immediately following my favorite holiday eat fest! I love classic Christmas music and just getting to see this incredible talent live is absolutely worth it. Depending on your age and your affinity to Christmas music (ahem, I know for a fact some of you listen BEFORE Halloween!), you will, at the least, recognize 90% of the music. When I say this is a show for all ages, I mean, all ages! Now, I did bring a 4 year old and you know your kids best – 90 minutes is the length of the typical kid movie, but the lights, the music, the puppets will dazzle them. JJ got a little restless towards the end, but he held on! Our favorites are Winston the Turtle and Emma Taylor (because I’ve met her before!), but you will also get to see the world’s greatest Elvis impersonator, the annoying neighbor and a few surprise guests too!

2016-12-01-02-05-03-636Terry is just insanely talented. He can impersonate anyone – Kermit the Frog, Michael Jackson, Elvis, Cher, Louie Armstrong, Tony Bennett, Aaron Neville, Eartha Kitt, Karen Carpenter, Bing Crosby, David Bowie (SWOON!), you name it! His band of characters are so different and his vocal range is every inch of the spectrum – truly awe-inspiring! I found myself singing along with so many songs and I felt like we were hanging out with friends. Such a great night all around. I look forward to taking my parents, other moms and more kids to this show as it will be a hit with anyone, even the Grinch! *wink-wink*

Another very important aspect of his show is that he takes time to acknowledge and thank veterans in the audience as well as first responders and officers. At the close of the show, he explains his passion for supporting military families, giving back to say Thanks:

Terry donates 100% of the profit he receives from sales of his merchandise to military charities.  The primary charities include wonderful organizations such as The Airpower Foundation and Snowball Express. –terryfator.com

Buy tickets to A Very Terry Christmas starting at $60 plus tax and fees and a VIP experience for $150

The VIP experience includes premium seating, an autographed photo, a souvenir program and a complimentary drink. (The slushies actually look gigantic! We’re talking bigger than a pint glass…maybe 24 oz?!)

Again, really no bad seats in the house and this is a must-see show! Please tag us when you attend – we would love to see your pictures! #lvmsentus @vegasmomsblog on Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat

Connect with Terry Fator on social media too!

When you do attend his show, I encourage you to please rate your experience on Trip Advisor too! I know I read reviews before I go places – it helps so much!

45239_143737908992087_916307_n-2Hi Moms! Are you looking for something to do with your kids 0-5 years old?! Are you looking for helpful resources? I can’t count how many times I did Google searches, Facebook searches and meetup searches. I was always looking for activities or classes to take my son to. Since he’s an only child, I kept hearing my friends and family say, “You should make some mommy friends so your son can interact with other children.”12992072_1149997478366120_1446597005_n-2

When I first moved out here I didn’t need to worry so much about making friends with other moms. I was constantly traveling back and forth to CA to visit my friends and family so my son was okay. He was getting all kinds of human interaction. Or so I thought! After a while, the constant road trips started taking their toll. I was getting burned out driving constantly: Some family members that I visit moved a little farther away so visiting everyone became harder. Plus, I started to miss staying at my own house here in Nevada. Eventually I decided to give Nevada a chance to grow on me. I started to do my research looking for ideal places to take my son.20151013_112524

I found a lot of awesome places to go but they lacked social interaction for my son. I eventually enrolled him in an indoor play area. We were content for a couple of months, but I just didn’t see my son utilizing any of the equipment or lessons they were teaching. He also started to get bored and do his own thing by himself. I thought to myself, “Wow this an expensive hangout.” I also wasn’t making any friends there; All of the mommies there were either nannies or already split off into groups. None of them were inviting new members so I just kept to myself and played with my son. I decided to end my membership and try Rec Center Classes, which was great and they had a variety of classes available, but after a while the mommy and me classes were scarce.  12986587_1149997868366081_1934384035_o-2

Next, I tried to enroll my son in some independent classes and it never worked out: He had major separation anxiety and teachers didn’t want to waste the limited amount of time comforting him. Back to the computer it was and I did more research to find things to do. I am not sure how I stumbled upon Family to Family Connection, but boy was I happy I did. They have an awesome group of ladies working there who are so helpful and understanding. They are very patient with my son and the classession are great. 

Please visit their website and check out their monthly calendar. You just may find the perfect for you too!

Springs Preserve: Come Explore the World of Lights This Labor Day Weekend

thumb-15

Soon we will have to say our goodbyes to Spring Preserve’s current featured exhibit, “Playing with Lights”, ending Sunday, Sept 5. If you haven’t had a chance to check out this spectacular exhibit I implore you to do so immediately, like today! Their current featured exhibit is so much fun you will literally forget you’re actually learning, which makes this the perfect opportunity to bring the entire family to explore, play, and learn. There are so many different stations designed to ignite your child’s imagination and allow them to explore the science and physics behind light. With only a few days left of this super fun, educational exhibit; there’s no better way to spend the day, so fly faster than the speed of light and get on over there!
