Our Trip to Los Angeles and Universal Studios Hollywood!

During our recent holiday weekend trip to Los Angeles, we visited Universal Studios Hollywood!

The tickets were about $130 a person, but we opted to purchase season passes that allowed us to return for about $50 more per person.

The rides were amazing.

Many of the rides feature 4D technology.

Amazon Prime Day Deals - Back to School Clothes for Girls and Boys


Ya'll, seriously - After my mother passed away suddenly in 2017, I only had a couple of weeks to shop for school clothes! Yes, I had other things consuming my mind, BUT I knew that I could depend on my good friend Amazon to come through for the win!

I order everything from t-shirts and dresses to underwear and socks on Amazon for my little one's first year of kindergarten. The good thing is that EVERYTHING fit her that year (and the next year). We have been satisfied with all of our Amazon Essentials and Spotted Zebra purchases and I try to tell other moms about the products anytime I have a chance.

This post contains affiliate links to help you build your shopping list and travel list for your family. We provide easy links for you to click to make your busy lifestyle easier! 

Here are our favorite Amazon Essentials and Spotted Zebra products for the first month of school in August and September! Our tip for parents and grandparents is to sort the items by day (in bags) and label them for each day (perhaps Monday - Friday). Make things simple! :)

Here's the entire list, but also here are FIVE selected Amazon Prime Deals for Back to School Clothes for Girls! - https://amzn.to/2ln53yR

The Catalina Island port has a lot of free and affordable experiences for families. From free playgrounds and a basketball court to affordable (and delicious) ice cream, your family can enjoy this amazing island.

These free experiences are located steps away from the cruise port (including Carnival Cruise Lines, Celebrity Cruise Lines, Holland America Line, Norwegian Cruise Lines, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, Princess Cruise Line, and Crystal Cruises) tether boat and the Catalina Express Ferry port. There are many things to do for kids on Catalina Island, but if you do not want to walk too far from the ship, you can enjoy these free experiences.



Carnival Cruise Lines has an amazing itinerary from Los Angeles to Mexico. This cruise provides a lot of discovery experiences for children of all ages. Whether you are planning to explore the island or remain close to the port, enjoy these free experiences!

Have a great week and plan for the weekend!

Create Your Dollar Store First Aid Kit for Travel



I have always had a purse FULL of just in case items that I need in case of an emergency. However, sometimes your travel plans do not incorporate the size of your everyday purse. This means that you have to DOWNSIZE. Ahgh!

This downsizing process can cause us to reevaluate what we choose to carry in our suitcase or travel backpack. One thing that I choose to always have on hand is my Dollar Store First Aid Kit.

Here's a hint, you can purchase each of these items for $1 or less AND they can fit in a small pack or a make up bag (we purchase our make up bag from Goodwill).

Here are the items:

1 - Bandages

2 - Thermometer

3 - First Aid Tape







4 - Ibuprofen

5 - Tweezers

6 - Acetaminophen


7 - Ice Pack

8 - Antibiotic Cream

9 - Baby Wipes

Here's the link to the Create Your Dollar Store First Aid Kit for Travel (just click the picture or link below).




Have a great week and plan for the weekend!

Sincerely,

The @WeekendsCount Family!
