Hops Burger Bar – Greensboro, NC

When I drove by Hops Burger Bar last week and saw how many people were waiting outside for a table I simply could not understand the hype. Its just a burger joint after all, or is it?After a bit of googling, I figured out why there were so many people dying to get inside. Hops Burger Bar was recently mentioned in a round up of "America's Most Delectable Burger Joints" by TripAdvisior. "Serving premium Angus burgers on buttery brioche buns, this popular eatery pairs each patty with a side of crispy fries salted to perfection. Guests can choose from a variety of burger options including the Hops Classic, or the Hawaiian topped with sweet and spicy chili sauce, blue cheese and grilled pineapple. “Best burgers in Greensboro and beyond! If you like a thick and juicy burger, then this is the place for you,” commented a TripAdvisor … [Read more...]

Tony & Milena’s – Hayes, VA

When you first approach Tony & Milena's 'Pizzeria', which is located in a small strip mall off the George Washington Memorial Hwy you really aren't sure what to expect. It looks like any other small town pizza joint that serves greasy pizza and over prized wings...However Tony & Milena's is  nothing like that. Actually, to be honest I'm not sure why they even call it a pizzeria. It's atmosphere and food feel and taste more like a fine dining Italian restaurant, with out the dress code and price shock. Our waiter, Max was attentive and helpful. He explained everything on the menu to us, and guaranteed no matter what we choose, we would love.For appetizers we got their Mozzarella Caprice and a bowl of Italian Wedding soup. I am a very picky Caprice eater and I was blown away by the one served to me. The tomatoes tasted just like … [Read more...]

KidCo Go-Pod

Disclosure: The Go-Pod pictured below was provided compliments of KidCo. When it comes to baby gear must haves, a good stationary activity center is for sure a must in my book. They are excellent to use before baby can crawl to keep them out from under foot and then can be used after they can walk to keep them in one place for more than five minutes thirty seconds. As much as I wanted to take our large one with us, I realized that living in a tiny space (like our 5th wheel) doesn't really give me the space to bring it, however there is just enough space for the KidCo Go-Pod! The Go-Pod is an ultra lightweight portable activity seat that was actually developed as an alternative to bulky stationary activity centers. Its one of a kind mobility design makes it a must-have for tiny living or travel.We love our Go-Pod and use it all the … [Read more...]

KidCo TravelPod

Disclosure: The TravelPod featured below was provided compliments of KidCo. One thing I have learned living in an RV is just because I don't have a ton of space, does not mean I have to sacrifice quality and comfort when it comes to baby gear. There are so many different baby gear products on the market made for small spaces and the KidCo TravelPod is currently one of our favorites. The TravelPod is one of the lightest play yards I have ever used, at just over 10lbs. It is recommended for children up to three years of age, or 37 inches. I found the sleep area to be larger than normal, and appreciated that I could use a normal pack and play sheet on the bottom. It fit in our large bunk room no problem. The mesh sides kept airflow going and allowed me to see Caleb from all sides. It also allows him to see out all sides, which keeps him … [Read more...]

Schwinn Dart Boys’ Bike

Disclosure: This post brought to you by LBox. I realized at the start of this summer that Ethan would need a new bike. His 16 inch bike, that came with training wheels had served him well for a few years and was really showing it's age from all the spills he took learning to ride. So him and I ventured out together to find the perfect one for him that was affordable, stylish and reliable. I knew for sure we wanted a Schwinn. Schwinn was established in 1895 and is America’s oldest bike brand, I even owned one when I was a child. Plus they offer a limited lifetime warranty for as long as you own the bike. Our local Walmart has a pretty huge bike section. The first, and only bike Ethan tried was the 20 inch Schwinn Dart. He fit on it like a glove and I was overly impressed with the price tag (only $98.87!) The Dart features both hand … [Read more...]
