Don’t stay at Princess Royale Hotel in Ocean City

They had issues with their pipe and our room got up to 80 degrees.  They would not refund our money.  However, they offered that option to a customer standing next to me.  When I asked why that was an option for them and not us they called security.   Poor service.   Horrible people.  Next, my lawyers.


The Capitol Deal Washington Post Summer Fun

Did you know that if you are a Washington Post subscriber you have a free membership to The Capitol Deal?  It’s a great website to get discounts on all things in the DMV.  I just recently did a family golf and outdoor fun adventure for less than $20 in Dulles!

They have some great spa and wine tasting deals if you are looking for a girls day out adventure.  Friends of ours picked up the Kings Dominion Deal after I told them about this website.

Enjoy your summer fun on a budget and keep it classy!😘

Great websites for family discounts

Having a bad day? Best advice from my mom.

You are allowed to have a moment.  Not a lifetime.  In other words, you are allowed to have a moment of reflection and pout for a little while but she refused to let me marinate in self pity.  So thankful for this advice because even today at 44 years old I don’t stay down for long.  A moment….not a lifetime.
