Rec Tec Grills Review

Rec Tec Grills Review

Rec Tec Grill 1

It has been over a year since I first discovered Rec Tec GrillsI was first drawn to them when I heard that you could bake cookies on a grill. I didn’t believe this was possible and spent several months researching and reading reviews from Rec Tec Grills users. This month I formed a partnership with the owners of Rec Tec Grills and was given my own grill to try out for myself. I have enlisted my family and friends to be my test subjects and we have already started to get our grill on. Over the course of the summer we will show you great recipes you can prepare on Rec Tec Grills and how you can use it for all your cooking needs. Yes, I will even show you how you can bake cookies and more without turning on your oven. Now that you are intrigued, keep reading to find out how our first experience using the Rec Tec Grill went.Continue reading

Brand New Stonyfield Organic Yogurt Pouches!

Brand New Stonyfield Organic Yogurt Pouches!

Disclosure:I participated in a Blogger Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Stonyfield. I received coupons to facilitate my shopping trip and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

Have you seen the Brand New Stonyfield Organic Yogurt Pouches? They are the  first refrigerated organic yogurt pouch available.All of the Stonyfield organic yogurt pouches contain pure organic ingredients and never any high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors. And more importantly (to my kid at least) is that it tastes great! I have a little dancer, so finding snacks that not only taste good, but are good for you is very important to me and my family. The new Stonyfield organic yogurt pouches are awesome because my daughter can grab them right out of the fridge on the way out the door on the way to class and have a healthy snack to hold her over until dinner. I will admit sometimes it was easier to grab a not-so-great-for-you snack like a bag of chips because it was easier, but now with these Stonyfield organic yogurt pouches we can have an easy snack that is still good for you! Continue reading

Crown Reef Myrtle Beach

Disclosure: I was invited to come look at the property by Myrtle Beach. The post below is what I think would be helpful to know and why I would stay at the resort below.

Crown Reef Myrtle Beach Resort Review

I know I have been talking about why you should consider South Carolina as your vacation choice because of the family friendly environment. I would also like to suggest ten reasons to make the Crown Reef your resort of choice.

Crown Reef Myrtle Beach Resort

 

1. The first reason is simple. Location, Location, Location. They are directly on the beach and they have the largest beach front lazy river. I can tell you my kids live for a good lazy river. I am inclined to say I am also a fan.

2. They have completely redone all the rooms. This bathroom is top notch!

3. They offer various room assignments from efficiencies to suites.

4. All rooms face the ocean!

5. In room full kitchen. This is a time and money saver!  Here is a list of what to bring in case you need one. My kitchen hotel kitchenette necessity list.

6. They have an arcade. Yes, and it doesn’t require coins. You just slide a card and off you go! Well, off they go and you can enjoy one of the many decks with an ice cream.

7) They have an ice cream parlor called swirl.

8. They are going to have a huge water slide. I mean huge. It will also be available year round! I can’t wait. I mean I really can’t wait. Do you know how much fun a water slide is?

9. There is a pool side bar. They want to make sure you are hydrated.

10. There are awesome restaurant onsite. The Loco Gecko Beach Shak features fresh food in a cool and causal environment.

This is a bonus… they have a conference center and ballroom. You could totally do a wedding there and I am more than willing to come to crash it. You did read the 10 reasons above. I truly believe if you scheduled a stay at the Crown Reef Resort you would not have a desire to leave. I think they offer everything a family would need to have an amazing vacation. I am willing to give them a try myself the next time I venture to Myrtle beach.

Barefoot Princess Riverboat Myrtle Beach

Barefoot Princess Riverboat Review

Barefoot Prin

Barefoot Princess Riverboat Myrtle Beach is The Grand Strand’s ONLY Tour and Dinner Riverboat on the Intracoastal Waterway.

It features a relaxing afternoon with a narrated Sightseeing Cruise, a 2-hour evening Dinner Cruise, or a Sunset or Fireworks Cruise to end your day. We took the relaxing afternoon cruise. They had music and cook out food for purchase. It was very reasonably priced. There were several floors but we decided to sit on the top of the desk.

I have to say this was a lovely 2 hour cruise with my kids and Shannon at Coupon Savings in the South. The kids had a nice time and I got to see some awesome houses on the tour. It is a really nice way to get to see Myrtle Beach from the water. We will need to check out the evening cruise the next time we are in town.

Good Vibrations, the newest live show in Calvin Gilmore Theater, is a virtual tour of the Sixties, Seventies and Eighties that is full of the sights and sounds of those memorable decades.

The best music of the 60s, 70s, and 80s, blended with rich multimedia screens, special effects, and elaborate costuming, all performed live by the award-winning cast of The Carolina Opry. This fast-paced, high-energy show will take you back to the decades that brought us the best in American popular music – The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Cyndi Lauper, James Brown, Tina Turner, and even KISS just to name a few! Even the comedy is from earlier eras with appearances from some of your favorite TV and film personalities of earlier decades. We guarantee you won’t see anything like this on the Grand Strand!

The show was filled with singing and dancing. Then they took some time to do a little bit of stand up comedy. It was a great blend of music and humor. The kids really enjoyed the dancing and the ability to meet the cast at the end of the show. We found the show to be one for every age. I will let parents know that your young children may dance in the aisle. I couldn’t keep mine in their seat and since they weren’t tall enough to obstruct anyone’s vision I just let them dance and sing along. I think music is a wonderful memory to added to any trip. It is the one thing that unites everyone and brings joy and happiness to those that can hear.

I think one of our favorite parts of the show were the comedy sections. the jokes were funny and tasteful and my children didn’t catch the jokes that were meant for the older crew. I am still laughing over the jokes. I can’t imagine not making this a part of your trip if you come to South Carolina, Myrtle Beach.

This is some of my crew and a friend of my crew with the awesome All That members. They allow the fans to come and take a picture with them which was a big hit with my little ones!
