Discovery Gateway Giveaway Winner!

I’m a little late in posting this, but forgive me; I am elbows deep in boxes, packing peanuts are clinging to my hair with superpowered static electricity, and my mind is somewhere with the Sharpie marker I can never find.

Moving is harder than keeping a three year old from toppling over the box full of vases, which has thus far proved to be impossible. Luckily, I randomly remembered to use random.org and pull a winner!

And the winner is…

Leisha B!

Leisha, I’ll be emailing you right away (before I forget!) and you will have 48 hours to get back to me or I’ll draw again. Though lets be honest, given my present circumstances of packing tape stuck between fingers, I’m likely to be a little lenient on the whole 48 hour deal. Congrats, Leisha!

Are your kids crazy about the Discovery Gateway Museum? My kids love it there! I love it because it’s a totally hands-on, educational play place where your kids are encouraged to touch and explore everything.

This week, I had the opportunity to see a sneak peek of Discovery Gateway Museum’s newest installation. Discovery Gateway has created an amazing Primary Children’s Hospital Emergency Department exhibit, including the beloved Life Flight helicopter!

Primary Children's Hospital at Discovery Gateway

The entire exhibit is designed to encourage kids to go through the entire hospital experience. Your child can man the Life Flight control tower, play pilot and pick up a patient (a “radio” gives the scenario–one of a number of common childhood accidents–and how to best care for the patient), practice checking in patients, dress up as the doctor, ‘xray’ bones, and even scrub up for surgery!

Surgery? Oh yes! Discovery Gateway has teamed with some amazing developers to create a one-of-a-kind iPad app so your child can preform several different surgeries over a pretend patient! (They are hoping to put this on the App Store soon!)

IMG_20130916_102440_614

If your child has a scheduled hospital visit, is frequently sick, or just a bit on the clumsy side, this exhibit is a perfect way to act out any fears or concerns your child may have!

I was happy to hear that the museum is accommodating towards both public and home school field trips. Lesson plans will be available online soon for teachers/parents who want to get the most out of their trip to the museum.

This Saturday, the brand new exhibit will be fully up and running. In celebration of the museum’s 35th anniversary, tickets will be on sale for their 35th anniversary this Saturday for only $3.50 per person! In addition, their memberships will be on sale both at the museum and online for $35 off the cost of membership! The museum will open early for members (9 a.m.) and 11 a.m. for nonmembers. For more information, call the museum at (801) 456-5437 or visit DiscoveryGateway.org!

Additionally, I am giving away a family pass to Discovery Gateway!

Slacker Mom Goes Shopping

Shop at Macy's

Disclaimer: Disclaimer: As part of the Macy’s Advisory Board I was compensated for this post. All opinions are my own.

 

Would you be surprised if I told you how much I detest clothing shopping? I’m a certified shopaholic, yet setting aside time each day for clothing for myself fills me with depression and terror. I can spend hours online picking out the perfect curriculum, and I look forward to back-to-school shopping for my kids each year. Stepping into a department store to hunt down the perfect ensemble, or try on the best fit of jeans, seems overwhelming. Facing a tiny dressing room with stacks of clothes to try as I get undressed in front of a mirror isn’t exactly high on my list of things to do in life.

Recently I was asked to shop at Macy’s to give a real mom’s opinion of the store. I had up until that point, owned two items from my local Cottonwood Macy’s (so dubbed because it is the only remnant of the former Cottonwood Mall.) The two items I own are two Lladro statues my husband has given me; one for our first Valentine’s Day and the second was this one I had casually mentioned would make a perfect wedding cake topper–he gave that one to me when he proposed. :)

For some reason, I had it in my head that Macy’s was an expensive store. As I strolled the aisles, I noticed a couple of things: these clothes were actually affordable and in my budget! (Especially when paired with their frequent coupons like these!) Second, I noted that I could actually bring my kids here. Unlike other Macy’s or other department stores, Cottonwood is unlikely to be crowded even on a Saturday. I guess the demise of an attached mall will do that to a store. It was one of those places your kids can run around or hide in the clothing racks (please tell me mine aren’t the only ones that do that?!) and you don’t have to panic thinking you’ve actually lost your children.

In general, Macy’s was easy to navigate, and the store clerks are happy to help you find what you need. This time I was in need of new bras and a trained sales associate gave me a free fitting and spent nearly an hour helping me pick and choose between all the different styles available. You can even get a free personal shopper appointment if you struggle to decide what looks best on you like I do!

I’m not sure I’m going to transform into a fashionista anytime soon… but it’s nice to know Macy’s is available to meet my budget and help me figure out my own personal style!

How do you feel about clothing shopping for yourself?

I Have Much to Tell You.

…but I still can’t find my camera charger! I’m hoping that as I pack to move, it will surface. With my luck, it will surface once I’m unpacking in the new house.

Speaking of a new house! Actually – I’m totally superstitious so I’m just gonna keep those details to myself. In less you know me in real life, in which case, I’ll probably tell you far more than you are interested in knowing. I don’t want to jinx anything here on the blog!

No pictures to show. I should pack a box or something.

Hopefully soon (really!) I will tell you all about our curriculum for the year and how our year is going. It’s already off to a better start than last year, though I’m not sure how throwing a potential move into the mix will affect things.

In other not so surprising news…

My kitchen is a mess. The kids are driving each other crazy. The kids are driving me crazy. And I just this second realized I should have put in that darn frozen lasagna an hour ago.

Lost? #adhd

I would very much like to share some cute pictures and updates on how our first week and a half of homeschool went. However… I have misplaced my camera’s battery charger and my camera is dead so I can’t upload them.

I’m also missing our rechargeable battery charger if anyone has seen that…?

One other thing, it is apparent that I’ve lost my marbles. I’ll be hunting for them under the couch and behind the dresser as I attempt to locate miscellaneous battery chargers.

All a day in the life of an adhd mind, I tell you.
