Upgrading Home Office Desks



If you ask me a corner desk is perfect! It offers great functionality and it makes sense when you think about the extra desk space you are getting. I have had a corner desk for years. It fits into my spare bedroom just perfectly. I have my computer monitor positioned right in the corner. This leaves the right and left side of the desk for anything else I need easy access to. On the left side I have a file folder tray with all of the things I need to do. On the right side I have my pens, calculator, post it notes, paper clips and everything else I need to keep within easy reach.

My corner desk is pretty old and I sometimes wonder how much longer it will last. It is going to need to be replaced sooner or later and I often wonder what I could replace it with since I love my current desk so much. 

I came across Bush office furniture. They have so many types of furniture available including filing cabinets, bookcases and of course, computer desks. I love keeping a bookcase close to my desk. I love how elegant it looks. It is also a great place to store important manuals and reading materials you would need to keep in an office. I really like this Birmingham 5 Shelf Wood Bookcase. 


As for the desk itself, the Bush Furniture Desk collection has many to choose from. My favorite thing about this Fairview desk is the hutch. This would be great to store stamps, envelopes, index cards and items you don't necessarily want on display. There is also a matching filing cabinet available.


As a blogger, I need an office that is well organized that makes use of the small space I have available. That is why I may look to this popular office brand when I am ready to purchase a new desk. My office is honestly one of my favorite rooms in the house. I want to be able to choose items that are affordable and reliable to furnish it with.

What is your favorite thing about your home office?

{Review} The Three Day Roar and Explore Adventure Getaway in Columbus, Ohio is the PERFECT solution for Affordable Family Fun!





Lions, Cyclones, and Dinosaurs, OH MY!!!

Have I got an affordableexciting and fun-filled family vacation option for you!

And guess what? It is right here in my home state of Ohio!

As you may know, Columbus is home to the #1 Zoo and #1 Science Center in the US! Did you catch that? #1! Therefore, it is naturally the perfect place to go for unforgettable family fun this summer!

Experience Columbus just launched an incredible Roar and Explore Adventure Getaway, featuring both of those top-ranked experiences and packed with family fun!

Starting at just $375 plus tax for a family of four, a savings of $84, the Adventure Getaway allows guests to experience a trio of top Columbus adventures at a surprisingly low cost. 

The package includes:Four tickets to The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium
Rated the No. 1 zoo in America by USA Travel Guide, Zoo visitors can visit Polar Frontier, where polar bears frolic underwater and swim overhead.  They can journey through the African forest, surrounded by leopards, okapis, and bonobos and visit the Zoo’s beloved family of western lowland gorillas, featuring 54-year-old Colo, the first gorilla born in captivity.

Four tickets to Zoombezi Bay
The only water park adjacent to a zoo, Zoombezi Bay is home to more than a dozen water slides and features, including Cyclone, a spine-tingling 20-plus-mph water ride with a 55-foot drop.  Zoombezi Bay will open two new waterslides this summer: Python Plunge and Anaconda Falls.

Four tickets to COSI
This summer, dinosaurs take over the science center that’s rated No. 1 for families by Parents magazine. This special exhibition features life-like animatronic dinosaurs plus simulator pods where kids can hunt, eat and flee predators.  Guests can also ride a high-wire unicycle, use sonar technology and much more in COSI’'s more than 300 interactive exhibits.







Two nights of accommodations

(Columbus-area Drury Inn & Suites is the Roar and Explore preferred hotel.) Prices may vary with other hotels.

Packages are designed for a family of four, but additional family members may be added when booking. I know what you are saying. What an incredible value! All of that starting at just $375 for a family of four!? Yes. Can you imagine all of the FUN that will be packed into 3 days for you and your family?! Wow!


Book It: You can book this amazing adventure 
by visiting Columbus Family Fun or you can call (888) 795-3701.


I had the pleasure of enjoying this getaway myself recently. Let me tell you it is FULL of action packed FUN!

Our hotel accommodations were at the Drury Inn & Suites in Dublin. The hotel was VERY nice and it offered some very nice perks including a FULL breakfast for free, as well as a "kick-back" at 5:30 pm also for FREE! The breakfast was very good and not just your typical donuts and coffee. This FREE breakfast included eggs, biscuits and gravy, french toast, sausage and make your own waffles! It was wonderful to not have to worry about breakfast in the morning! The "kick-back" happens at 5:30 pm daily. It is also FREE! The one time we took advantage of this, it included hot dogs, baked potatoes and make your own nachos. Adults also get three free alcoholic beverages during the kick-back! There is a soda machine and popcorn available as well. I was very pleased with all the extras that were included! They also have a very nice pool area! The pool is indoor/outdoor and it also has a hot tub. We took advantage of that every day! This hotel is the "preferred" Roar and Explore hotel. So it is likely you will get this hotel if you book the package. It was very convenient to get to to zoo as well as to COSI. Although the hotel seemed full, it was very quiet! It was also very clean! I would definitely stay here again!

On the first day we arrived in Columbus, we headed to COSI. COSI is the #1 Science Center in the nation! It was so BIG! I did not know what to expect! Included in the Roar and Explore package you get to see the Dinosaurs Exhibit as well as see the 3D Dinosaur movie on a HUGE movie screen! Also included is the general admission to COSI of course! We just had a blast exploring the huge facility!

The kids loved "Ocean" where they got to play with all kinds of water exhibits and even went down into a submarine! They got a bit wet and loved every minute of it! There were many more exhibits to explore including "Space", "Progress" and "Life".

Then we headed to the "Dinosaurs" exhibit! The kids just loved seeing the HUGE dinosaurs come to life with animatronics! There were many stations set up where you could play the simulation dinosaur game as well. After that we headed to the 3D Dinosaur movie. You need to schedule a time to see it. The screen was HUGE so we were very excited. I found the movie very interesting and informative. I would not recommend this movie for anyone under 6 or 7. It contained realistic scenes that might scare young children. It is more educational than it is entertaining. They also had a 3D movie about surfing which we did not see. We really enjoyed our day at COSI. There was SO MUCH more to see that we did not have a chance to explore. We were there for about 5 hours and saw most of it. Plan a full day there if you want to see everything.

The next day we headed to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, the #1 Zoo in the nation! We soon discovered that it is a HUGE zoo! We started our adventure and figured we would get through as much as we could! My favorite exhibits included "Polar Frontier", "Asia Quest", and "Shores".

The "Polar Frontier" is a must-see! It is a very nice exhibit that offers both outdoor and underwater viewing areas. In the underwater viewing area you could see the polar bears what seemed like all around you! There were even swimming over your head! They were so playful and active. The exhibit had a mining theme and was very nicely done.

"Asia Quest" was just beautiful to walk through not even including the amazing animals! There were Asian touches around every turn making it feel like you were halfway around the world! There was even Asian music playing. It was just a lovely experience. In this area we saw so many amazing animals including the African Lions, Asian Elephants and Siberian Tigers. The animal exhibits looked to natural and close to their habitat - yet we saw every animal close up. I was quite impressed.

Being an ocean lover I really enjoyed "Shores". I especially liked the Discovery Reef Aquarium. We got there just in time to see a diver in the tank. It was just beautiful! I could have watched the fish in the coral reef tank for hours! There were also flamingos, alligators and penguins in the "Shores" exhibit! To end our day we headed to Jungle Jack's Landing. The kids wanted to ride some rides! You can buy a wristband for unlimited rides for $8. They certainly got their money's worth! Overall we had a WONDERFUL day at the zoo! I can certainly see why it is #1!

For our final day we headed to Zoombezi Bay which is adjeacent to the Zoo. After walking in you feel like you are suddenly on a tropical vacation! The decor, music, setup was all so relaxing and it got us very excited for our day at the water park! 

We got seats by "Barracuda Bay" which is a wonderful kids area! There was so much for the kids to do! They explored a pirate ship, went on several small watersides and explored a 4 story tree house! They had a blast! It was the perfect place for us to sit so they could explore within eyesight!

My personal favorites were the lazy rivers and the wave pool. The main lazy river took you around the water park and you could get on/off very easily to get you from one place to another. You could just walk the river or go in a tube. The wave pool was unlike other wave pools I have been to. This wave pool was much better because it let off tons and tons of smaller waves instead of just one giant wave like others I have been to. The wave pool is HUGE - we had so much fun there! Then of course there were the water slides! The one shown above is a giant cyclone, You get into a 4 person tube and come out of the slide into a giant funnel! 

So many water slides so little time! We enjoyed about five of the water slides but did not go on all of them. The water park is very spread out but the lazy river made it easier to get from one place to another. There are so many options for all types of thrill seekers. There was literally something for everyone. Most of the water slides required you to be 48". The kids were only 46" but we managed to switch off and enjoy the large water slides as well. 

We were so sad to leave! It was a perfect three day getaway! I still can't believe the great price! Only $375 for a family of four and you get SO MUCH for your money! It is such a GREAT deal and I would recommend it to anyone! What are you waiting for?! Start planning your own Roar and Explore Adventure! 

Book It: You can book this amazing adventure 
by visiting Columbus Family Fun or you can call (888) 795-3701.

How To Get Cash Back When You Shop Online



If you follow these steps every time you shop online you will save and make money! Interested? Okay here we go!

Step 1: Find a Deal

Retail Me Not has thousands of coupon codes for 65,000 stores listed in an easy to find search tool. Just search for the store you want to shop at. For this example, let's use Macy's. After a quick search I found a code for 25% off my purchase. It tells me the code is 25OFF. Write it down.

Step 2: Visit your favorite Cash Back Site and find the best deal.

My favorite cash back site is Ebates. Here is how it works. 
  • Before you shop online, go to the Cash Back Site first. For our Macy's example, I found that Ebates was offering 5% back.
  • Find and click to the Macy's website through Ebates. 
Step 3: Decide what you want to buy and enter the coupon code you found in your cart.

Let's say our Macy's purchase was $100. The coupon code we found will save us 25% so our total is now $75. Complete your purchase. Make sure you don't click out once you have clicked in through Ebates. Wait until your transaction is complete.

Step 4: Wait for your rebate!
  • You just made 5% of $75. It may not seem like much now, but trust me it will add up FAST!
  • You will get a rebate from Ebates every three months. The rebates will add up fast. The rebate will go right to PayPal or you can have a check sent to you. 
It is so easy and I have saved - and made - a lot of money shopping this way. I hope you found this useful! Happy Shopping! :D

Enjoy Some FlipFlop Wine This Summer {Review}



Flip Flop Wines: To Each, Their Own
With flipflop wines, we have embraced the movement toward individualistic expression, instead of manufacturing wines into some cookie-cutter style that’s all the rage. Our goal is to craft expressive, well-balanced wines that evoke just what the grapes inside intended, without being over-wrought or over-explained, and that can be enjoyed at any occasion.

I was once again given the great opportunity to review FlipFlop Wines. In my first review I was able to try the Riesling and the Pinot Grigio. This time I had the pleasure of reviewing the Chardonnay and the Cabernet Sauvignon.

Tastes like: Medium bodied with pineapple, soft vanilla and a long lingering finish

I love that every bottle contains an easy to read label showing the level of dry to sweet. This wine is medium dry. I did not know what long lingering finish meant until I tasted this. It has a rather strong taste that stays with you. I tend to like sweet wines so I was not sure if I would like it. But I did! I still found it enjoyable and loved the oak notes. This wine should be chilled and will nicely compliment mac and cheese or a chicken Caesar salad.


Tastes like: Full-bodied with blackberry fruit, dark cherries and a long lingering finish

This was my first opportunity to try a red FlipFlop wine. I tend to choose whites so I was not sure if I would like it. This is a dry wine and I picked up on the dark fruits in it right away.  This was my husband's favorite of the two. I would need to get used to drinking red wine just because you should serve it at room temperature. However, I cheated and added an ice cube after a few sips. I liked it better! "To each their own" just as FlipFlop Wines would say! It perfectly pairs with New York strip steak, spinach ravioli and Portobello mushrooms. Enjoy a video tasting with Vinter, David Georges!

FlipFlop Wines offers a collection of seven wines ranging from Chardonnay and Moscato for whites and Merlot and Pinot Noir for reds. These wines are only $7 a bottle! You may order Flip Wine wines online. I also was able to find FlipFlop Wines at my local Kroger! Just look for the cool Hawaiian flip flops on the bottle!! Out of the four wines I have tasted from FlipFlop Wines so far, the Pinot Grigio is still my favorite! Read my review of the Pinot Grigio!


One of my favorite things about this fabulous wine is the fact that they give back! They have teamed up with Soles4Souls, a charity that distributes shoes to children in need. "The wines get an extra amount of care knowing that a pair of flip flop sandals will be given to a person in need for each flipflop bottle purchased. Great wine that does good!" says Vintner, David Georges. There are more than 300 million children in the world without shoes, and FlipFlop Wines is helping by putting shoes on more than 100,000 feet!

What an amazing collaboration!


For more information on FlipFlop Wines,
please visit their websiteFacebook or Twitter.
