BON JOVI Circle Tour NYC

BON JOVI 
The Circle Tour
Madison Square Garden NYC
Okay, What can I say? You either are a Bon Jovi fan or you’re not. My entire family is a Bon Jovi loving family. Even Emily knows the songs, since they are ring tones on my BB and alarms. So, I was thrilled to be able to go to the Bon Jovi’s Circle Tour last night!
I was a little concerned when I heard there was no “lead-in” band. But, I was definitely NOT disappointed when Bon Jovi started one hit after another and played from 8pm until past 11pm…non stop! I had seen him in the spring at the New Meadowlands Stadium, but this was even better!!
The energy was outrageous. The music was great. Bon Jovi-Amazing!
I was so happy to hear some of my favorite songs like:
We Weren’t Born to Follow
Have a Nice Day
Wanted Dead or Alive
Bad Medicine
Livin on a Prayer
and 
It’s MY Life!

If you have a chance to see Bon Jovi LIVE, don’t miss out!

Hershey Lodge! It’s Cozy Inside

Hershey Lodge-It’s Cozy Inside
It has a been an unusually cold winter, but don’t worry there is a place in Hershey,PA where it  is warm and cozy inside, the Hershey Lodge! My family has spent many years going to Hershey at different times of the year, but one of my favorite times to visit the Hershey Lodge is during Chocolate Covered February. What a perfect month to enjoy chocolate everywhere you look!

Our visit to the lodge started with a great feature: The Kids’ Check-In. The characters are right there in the lobby to meet and greet the children(and adults). There is a special desk for the children to check in and gather up some goodies-including a personalized lanyard, stickers, coloring sheets, crayons, little surprises, candy and even a candy guessing contest! That immediately gets everyone into the right frame of mind. The kids are happy, so everyone is happy! 
Soon after checking in we all wanted to head to the indoor pool, whirlpool and game room. 
It could not be any nicer. It was great to be in a nice warm pool and view all the snow surrounding us outside the windows! We knew right then, we were in the right place! Let the relaxing and fun begin! The duckies in the pool-bonus! It does not matter if you have children or not, you cannot help but enjoy the Hershey Lodge pool. If you visit in the summer, you can also enjoy a second outdoor pool!

After our swim and game play, including ping-pong, we headed to another one of the many lodge activities: Graham Cracker house building. What fun! Everything you need to make your house is supplied by the lodge, all you have to do is show up and have fun! Some other activities include:hotel crafts,pool games,  movies, Hershey kiss Bingo and more! Be prepared to plan so you can get in some real fun!
When it’s time for dinner you don’t have to worry about leaving Hershey Lodge. There are choices within the lodge for every taste. Our family favorite for dinner is The Bear’s Den. This restaurant is themed after the Hershey Bear’s hockey team and comes complete with “ice floor”(not real ice) and private tv’s within each booth! Can you say fun? Not only is it a great themed restaurant, the food is delicious and the popcorn is endless!
After dinner we spent some time in the lobby relaxing by the fireplace. We could not help but to get a nice cup of coffee at the Cocoa Beanery and then headed back to the room for a great night’s rest. Somewhere along the way, we picked up a Big Hershey Kiss and of course a kiss shaped balloon! It must have been our stop at the gift shop! We sure needed a rest after our action packed day at the lodge!
But, the fun was not over in the morning. We headed for a speciality breakfast held on certain weekends throughout the year. On our way into Lebbie Lebkicher’s we were greeted by the Hershey band playing some lively tunes! During breakfast, which I absoulately LOVE, we were surrounded by chocolate covered strawberries and fruits, choco chip pancakes, and even chocolate butter, chocolate everything! Of course, there were many other breakfast items, as well as a regular menu available. The people at Lebbie’s  and the lodge could not have been any nicer. Chef Andy even greeted us and made the rounds. Everyone in the room seemed satisfied! It was a real perk to have the Hershey characters going from table to table! It was a Chocolate dream come true! 
If you are looking for a great resort to visit during any season, you should definitely consider the Hershey Lodge in Hershey, PA! It’s a great place for families, couples, friends and conventions!

LIVE with Regis and Kelly NYC


LIVE with Regis and Kelly NYC
Most mornings do not go by without my family tuning in for at least a few minutes to LIVE with Regis and Kelly on ABC! My three children have grown up with Regis as a household name, so when my tickets arrived for the show I knew two of them would be taken my by sons. Today we headed to ABC Studios on 67th Street and Columbus in NYC. We had to be there bright and early, around 7am to be checked in, cleared and given our physical tickets to the show.
By about 8:30am the audience members were taken into the studio and seated. We were lucky enough to get the center section and not too far back. The studio is very small, so it really does not matter where you sit. Today’s audience had about 150 people in it. Everyone that was age 18 and over was given a number on the way in, so they could participate in the drawing! While awaiting the beginning of the show, Michael Gelman(the producer) came out to greet everyone and give the studio audience some tips! Eventually everyone got the idea and just in time for the show to begin!
At exactly 9am, like magic, Regis and Kelly entered the LIVE studio and the audience went wild! Regis and Kelly have a way of bringing a smile onto everyone’s face. The energy in the audience was unbelievable and the fun just went on and on. During each and every commercial break Regis and Kelly greeted, talked to, and had fun with the audience. They were very open to everyone’s questions and conversations. 
LIVE with Regis and Kelly always has on some interesting guests. Today’s guests included William H. Macy and another couple from the World’s Greatest Love Story. They were both great to hear from. William H. Macy’s clip from Shameless was super!
After the show we were lucky enough to have a meet and greet with Regis and Kelly. They could not have been any nicer, hugs included!

Toys R Us Times Square NYC

Toys R Us Times Square NYC
Looking for a fun place to visit? 
Most of us at one time or another have been to Toys R Us. If you are a family with children or grandchildren you are probably a frequent visitor, but you have never seen a Toys R Us like the one at Times Square NYC.
The store is impressive before you even enter it, with its outside “well-lit eye-catching” billboard above the huge revolving doors that lead you inside. Once inside you are immediately drawn to the enormous indoor ferris wheel that goes from the bottom floor all the way to the top! It has cars on it with everything you can think of from Mr. Potato Head to Cabbage Patch Dolls, Monopoly and so on! There is a car for everyone’s taste.
As you venture upstairs be prepared to face some “larger than life” friends on display. You won’t find these in your ordinary Toys R Us.
You can say hello to the T-Rex that almost touches the ceiling, a Giant Transformer, many Lego displays and more things then you can ever imagine. Boys can have a lot of fun in these sections filled with adventure!(girls enjoy it,too)
 My daughter’s favorite part of Toys R Us Times Square is the Barbie section or as she calls it, “Barbie World”. I would have to agree with her. You can have a lot of shopping fun in Barbie’s 4000 sq. ft. dollhouse! I think you can find every Barbie and accessory made for Barbie. There are two floors of Barbie fun! If you are not into Barbie, you can still enjoy many choices like: Cabbage Patch dolls, Disney Princess, Polly Pocket and more.
If you are starting to get a little rumbly for some candy, don’t worry. There is a complete CandyLand themed section filled with “too many” candy choices! If you can’t find what you are looking for there, you have a second shot at it by visiting the Wonka World Candy Section or Scoops R Us for some yummy ice cream!
Don’t leave the store without saying hello to Geoffrey and even taking home a picture if you would like! Toys R Us Times Square is a fun place to shop or just to visit! If you are in NYC or the Times Square area, don’t pass by Toys R Us. You won’t believe what is inside!
