5 Reasons You Need to Visit The Baton Rouge Symphony #BRSO

5 Reasons You Need to Visit The Baton Rouge Symphony #BRSO We were recently given the opportunity to visit the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra for their Home For The Holidays performance.  I can sum up our evening in three words:  “Oh…my…goodness!”  The entire experience was perfect.  We have never been to Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra nor have we been to the River Center during the holidays.  This experience was nothing short of magical.  From Santa Clause sitting at the entrance of the theater to the beautiful musical performance of the

Behind The Scenes At Cirque Du Soleil #Toruk

Behind The Scenes At Cirque Du Soleil #Toruk I had the amazing opportunity to explore behind the scenes at the Cirque Du Soleil Toruk show at the Cajundome in Lafayette, LA, last week. I had never been to a Cirque show before last week, so I wasn’t real sure what to expect.  I was amazed at the amount of preparation that goes into putting this show on at the Cajundome.  It was surreal, the night of the show, to see how everything came together.  These performers practice 10-12 hours a day,

We just got back from the movies and this trailer was playing at the opening of the movie. My husband, all 3 kids, and I were all crying laughing at this movie! I adore Will Ferrell.  I mean, sometimes I even laugh just looking at him.  Then Mark Wahlberg (MEOW), is playing the sexy “real” daddy.   They play out this “contest” of sorts to

Give Your Kids Goosebumps #GoosebumpsMovie

Give Your Kids Goosebumps #GoosebumpsMovie We are always looking for great gifts for our kids around this time of year.  Our oldest two children have birthdays within a few weeks of Christmas, so we have a particularly hard time with gifts and what to get.  Of course, our kids love video games and sports, but that does get old after a while.  All parents love getting their kids books and other “educational” gifts, but do the kids actually like them?  Ummmmm…..well….YES!  When you choose the right book, even the ‘coolest’
