Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food at Universal’s CityWalk

Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food

Disclaimer: I was provided with incentives for this post; however, all opinions are mine and mine alone. After walking around Universal Orlando and having a blast, there was nothing I wanted more than a delicious meal and refreshing drink. CityWalk, right out the gates of Universal's Island of Adventure and Universal Studios, has a multitude of places to dine and relax. One such treasure I found at CityWalk was called Antojitos, which serves … [Read more...]

Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando

Diagon-Alley-Universal-Orlando-Mama-Luvs-Books

Disclaimer: I was provided with incentives for this post; however, all opinions are mine and mine alone. The new Wizarding World of Harry Potter Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando is completely worth the visit. In fact, it was my kids' favorite thing at Universal Orlando, and the place we spent most of our time while at the parks. We had visited Universal Orlando previously (before Diagon Alley was open), and the Wizarding World of Harry … [Read more...]

Nick Hotel: Your One Stop Shop for Fun!

Nick-Hotel-Orlando-FL

Disclaimer: I stayed at the hotel at a discounted rate; however, all opinions are mine and mine alone. We were lucky enough to stay at the Nick Hotel once again. The reason we went back is because my kids are obsessed with it. I told them we could stay anywhere they wanted to in Orlando for our recent trip, and they chose the Nickelodeon Suites Resort, otherwise known as the Nick Hotel. Why is this their favorite hotel in Orlando? Maybe … [Read more...]

Meeting Those Milestones in Life with Netflix #StreamTeam

Milestones-Netflix-StreamTeam

Disclaimer: As part of the StreamTeam from Netflix, I am participating in this post. Incentives are given for being a part of the team; however, all opinions are mine and mine alone. The kids are now 10 and 7, and my "tween" has asked to go Trick-or-Treating in a group with her friends without a parent. Ugh! Sometimes milestones like these make me nervous. I feel like I'm living in an episode of Parenthood, and there will be some dramatic … [Read more...]

Skylanders-Trap-Team-Review

Disclaimer: This product was received for review; however, all opinions are mine and mine alone. I'm not going to lie. Sometimes my kids get super lucky with me being a blogger. Skylanders Trap Team was top on my son's Christmas List and he got it early because of my job. It was like an early Christmas the day it arrived at the door. There was plenty of screaming and running around the house; just like Christmas morning. He could not have been … [Read more...]

The Second Tree by John Butziger {Review and Giveaway}

The-Second-Tree-by-John-Butziger

NOTE: This post was written by my husband, Tony Wheeler, who read and reviewed the book for this site's purposes. I work in an industry that holds skeptical views of self-publishing. We need gatekeepers (publishers) to ensure that the market isn’t flooded with low quality products (books). After all, if anyone can publish anything on the Internet, how are we supposed to sift through all of the junk to find the gems? Such is the power of … [Read more...]
