Even though I hate winter, I kinda secretly love February. Its always a fun month with a lot of activities and this year, a two week trip to Florida! And I don’t know if because February is shorter, but it always seems to go fast! Plus, the end of February signifies that spring is around the corner! In this busy month, here is some stuff I am loving!

I am always on the look out for good travel deals and how to save money on trips. I think we do a great job booking flights and hotels, and maximizing our Delta and Marriott rewards points. However, car rentals always throw me for a loop. Sometimes I feel like a great deal on car rentals is like a nut I cannot crack! But over the recent years, I have come up with some strategies that have saved me money on car rentals. Here are my best car rental booking tips!

If you have been following along, you know that our family was so fortunate to spend three weeks in Hawaii last summer. We visited Maui and The Big Island with our two kids, age 4 and 7. Needless to say, we had an awesome time. Most of my planning was done by searching Pinterest for family friendly blog posts offering advice of “must-dos” on the islands. I compiled a list of things that sounded interesting (and brought a 2016 Fodor’s Hawaii with us) and made our way through the many awesome activities we hoped to do. We also discovered other great things and I am thrilled to share them all!

 

P.S. This list is great for anyone traveling to Maui – honeymooners, adventurers, couples, etc!

I’m staring out the window at a full on blizzard and reminiscing about our trip to Orlando a mere two weeks ago! If you checked out my Chef Mickey review, you know that baby girl and I were in Orlando to visit family. A full-on Disney day wasn’t in the cards for us (plus I would have felt bad going to Disney without little man). But we did do a day to trip to Legoland Florida– and it was awesome!

Last week, as I was completing a 9-mile run on the treadmill, I started brainstorming ideas for upcoming posts. I want to write about our trip to Legoland, I still have some Hawaii posts to put out and I need to write something about long flights with kids (I have awesome tips!!!). But, I realized, first and foremost, I must write my thoughts on training for a half-marathon.

 

Disclaimer: I have two successful half-marathons under my belt. I am currently training for my third, which is in two weeks. I am not a physician, nor am I a personal trainer. I am just sharing my amateur experience. I hope you realize that if I can do it, so can you!

I can’t believe its time for another Stuff I Love post! January has graced us with pretty mild winter weather here in the North East. No complaints about that! Baby girl and I spent five days in Orlando, which was super fun! I’m continuing to train for a half-marathon coming up next month. And I started a more consistent schedule of working one day a week – need to write more about that, its been awesome! And I have picked up some more tutoring students as the kids approached midterms and standardized tests are getting under way!

And I have certainly loved all of that! But on to the good stuff… my January 2017 Stuff I Love.

Last weekend, baby girl and I took a much-needed break to some warm weather. We spent five days in Orlando, Florida with my cousin and her three kids!

Now when people think Orlando, naturally, they think of Disney World. And believe me, Disney World is amazing! And tiring! And expensive! So on this trip we took a mellower jaunt to the Greatest Place on Earth – a character meal at Chef Mickey!

One of my favorite places to visit is Atlantic City. I love the casinos, the beach, boardwalk, and the cheesy Jersey Shore vibe. I always have fun there. My earliest memory of visiting AC was after my cousins wedding… in 1992! Last October, I ran the 2016 AmeriHealth Atlantic City Half Marathon with that same cousin! My husband even proposed to me in a limo on a surprise getaway to the Borgata!

We have visited AC almost every year during the week between Christmas and New Year’s. In 2011 we took our infant daughter and in 2012, 13 & 15 headed down without kids. This year, I wanted to spend time all together so the four of us headed down for 48 Hours In… Atlantic City.

Happy New Year and welcome to my final 2016 Stuff I Love: December edition. I had a great holiday season; I so love that time between Thanksgiving and the New Year. We had some great travels, Maine, North Carolina and Atlantic City but also enjoyed our local festivities. It felt like quite a whirlwind and now onward to 2017!

I know this is the time of year for the New Year, New Me resolutions. I get it. I love the fresh start of the New Year. I probably should eat a little better in 2017. Cook a little more. Drink less wine & I legitimately am going to try to read more. But as far as fitness goes I’m in a pretty good groove. In 2016 I ran two half marathons (the Long Island Half Marathon and the AmeriHealth Atlantic City Half). I ran countless 5Ks, the Bellmore Striders 4th of July 4 miler, and the New Hyde Park 8K. I consistently worked out at least three times a week.

But it’s taken me years to get into my workout groove. And today I am going to share with you my NUMBER ONE tip for staying active.
