Win Riot Fest Tickets By Playing Band Bingo!

One of my favorite music festivals is fast approaching and I want to help you win Riot Fest tickets! The lineup is incredible as always, even though people would still complain about it if all four The Beatles rose from the grave and reunited for the show. Which is why, to win tickets this year, we are going to play BAND BINGO!

Riu Palace Riviera Maya

Riu Palace Riviera Maya: Chandeliers By The Beach

Note: A portion of our trip was provided by Riu Hotels. However, all words and photos are mine.
It's been ten years since we visited the Riviera Maya area of Mexico. And the last time we were there, I broke my ankle! Lucky for me, this trip - and our time at Riu Palace Riviera Maya - were totally incident-free. In fact, everything was exactly what you want from a beach vacation. Well, the weather was maybe a touch cool (75 F) for Mexico, but I will let Riu off the hook for that. As in 2006, our best friends Danielle, Jeff and their son joined us. We consider each other "framily" in that we spend holidays and vacations together. This time was extra, extra special because we watched the Denver Broncos win the Super Bowl while drinking cervezas on the beach. WOOT!
Manuel Antonio Hotel: Parador Resort

Manuel Antonio Luxury Hotel: Parador Resort

Note: Part of my stay was covered by Parador Resort. All words and photos are mine.
When I was searching for a hotel during the Manuel Antonio portion of our recent trip to Costa Rica, one resort popped up over and over again: The Parador in Quepos. Manuel Antonio is a must-see travel destination: a national park with beautiful beaches and the most bio-diversity in Costa Rica, within a country that touts the highest density of bio-diversity in the world. So, of course, I knew we wanted to visit the area and was happy to come across Parador Resort, which combines luxury accommodations with environmentalism. Manuel Antonio Hotel - Parador Resort
Nature Cat TV Show from PBS KIDS

Nature Cat in the New Year

One of my favorite new PBS KIDS shows will have a new special on January 18th! NATURE CAT is all about the outdoor adventures of a goofy house cat. It packs a whole lot of environmentalism and physical activity into a television show, which is a weird concept, I know. But Fred and his friends encourage kids to "play the show" - meaning, take the skills they learn and go outside to use them. Like my kid who has grown up in downtown Denver, Nature Cat loves the outdoors but isn't quite sure what to do there. I love the mix of humor, adventure and great animation that encourages all of us to be brave. Not surprising since the show was created by the Rudman Brothers, of Cookie Monster and Jack's Big Music Show fame. Heart emoji. I Love Dirt!
Looking To The Future With Ford

Looking To The Future With Ford Trends

Jimmy_Kimmel_LiveI feel lucky to have a long-standing relationship with Ford. Sometimes we do super fun things together, like hanging out at the Jimmy Kimmel Live show and then checking out the 2017 (yes, 2017) Ford Escape during the Los Angeles Auto Show. But every time I attend a Ford Trends Event, I learn new things too, and not just about cars. I also have been lucky to attend the "Further With Ford" conference several times, and listen to Sheryl Connelly speak about trends. Again, not just trends in the automotive industry. Of course Ford is interested in how all these affects them as a company, but the variety of topics always show me they are thinking about what people are doing both in and out of their cars. Today Sheryl and Ford has released the fourth-annual "Looking Further with Ford Trend Report" which takes you through the 10 trends that are expected to shape the global consumer climate across all industries for 2016.
Tabacon Resort - Costa Rica

Tabacon Resort in Arenal, Costa Rica

Note: A portion of our stay was provided by Tabacon Resort. However, all words and photos in this review are mine.
This fall, I was able to go back to Costa Rica for my second time and bring the boys for their first time. I knew for sure I wanted to bring them to Tabacon Resort in La Fortuna, near the Arenal Volcano. They have their own hot springs resort right across the street - which is included in your stay. People not staying at the hotel can visit with a day pass for $85 USD (which includes a meal) per person... but you can imagine how having free access included is a major plus to staying at Tabacon Resort. Tabacon Resort - Costa Rica But it's definitely not the only plus. This five-star hotel does not disappoint. When you arrive, you are greeted by friendly staff and a fruity, refreshing drink. The grounds are lush, just like it should be when you are nestled in a rainforest. Tabacon Resort - Costa Rica
