In these crazy quarantine times, I’ve been watching a ton of movies! I mean what else to do since I’m not traveling? Since the news is so heavy, and life at home can be hard, we have been leaning towards comedic, lighthearted, fun movies to escape the weight of our everyday quarantine lives. So, I decided to share with you all a list of my favorite comedy movies that inspire travel.
I got my first real grown-up luggage set for my wedding back in 2007. And those suitcases have served us well for MANY years – but the carry-on size suitcase busted a wheel and has been on the fritz for a while. The big one busted a zipper and I had to replace it on short notice. I had been in the market for a new carry on suitcase, but with SO MANY options I was kind of stymied about making a new purchase! I was so excited to be introduced to Chester Travels, the ultimate brand in hardside luggage. Today I am so excited to share my review of the Chester Minima, a hardside carry on suitcase that I know you all are going to love!
Momma To Go received a Chester Minima Carry-On Spinner Suitcase for purpose of this review. As always, all opinions are my own.

Have you ever seen cute home décor at the store and thought – I wish I could make that?
Well now you can, right here on the South Shore of Long Island! I was so excited to recently check out the new AR Workshop in Bellmore, New York. At their preview night, dubbed the “Aqua Carpet,” I made an awesome rustic looking sign that now hangs in my office. The whole project took only about two hours and I love the piece I created.

The winter blah’s have hit full force here, as I’m sure is true for many of you. With plummeting temperatures, shorter days, and even school cancellations, entertaining my kids this time of year is always a challenge. That’s why I was so excited to have baby girl try out a new creative art immersion kit from locally based, Pint Size Painters!
Momma To Go was gifted a Vincent van Gogh Sunflowers set from Pint Size Painters for purpose of this review. As always, all opinions are my own.

I love giving gifts, I love finding unique things the recipient would love. Sometimes, it makes sense to do a basket of smaller things, as opposed to one big present. Of course those need to fit a theme, or have a common thread. Since I love Italy, and all things Italian, I thought I’d put together some fun ideas for creating Italian Gift Baskets for your friends and family! These would also make GREAT teacher gifts as well. Keep reading for the best Italian Gift Ideas!

We travel as a way to spend time as a family. We travel to see the world and know that there is more to life than our tiny slice of it. We love long trips, like our three weeks in Hawaii, short, local getaways like our night in Dutchess County, or annual trips to our favorite winter spot, Southwest Florida. No matter near or far, short or long, each trip is special to our family. As cheesy as it sounds, the memories we create on these trips will last a lifetime.

I love sharing my destination guides and travel tips for taking kids around the world! But I also love introducing my readers to fun things they can do close to home. Unless you are a full-time travel family (and I have met many through blogging and social media) you are spending more time at home than traveling. For that reason, I like to have lots of activities in my back pocket to tuck away for a holiday or weekend day when we are just hanging on Long Island. Over the last year, we have been introduced to roller skating and it has quickly become my kids’ favorite indoor activity! So I am super excited to share with you some more info on the best place to go roller skating on Long Island and why I know you will love roller skating too!
I will be spending the next year as a United Skates Social Media ambassador. Our previous experiences at United Skates have been not sponsored. As always, opinions are all my own.

Hi friends – this summer is flying by! I’ve been a little quiet here and on my social media because I have been working at camp all summer. I am a head counselor for a group of 4-year old boys! Needless to say, its kept me on my toes! Working at camp has also kept me super exhausted! Each day I spent an hour or so before camp working on a few new posts and engaging on social media. I’ve also been making a long to-do list to help me when I can get back to full time blogging in the fall!
$275 Target Gift Card Giveaway (Closed) and Summer 2018 Travels
When taking your next road trip, in addition to packing your luggage, there are certain items you MUST have for your car! Trust me, I know. This winter I drove 2,600 miles from New York to Florida (on 1/2 of the trip I was the only parent) and just returned from a LONNNGGG ride up to Maine, and back. We even took this show on the international road, driving up to Montreal! Stocking your car with the essentials will keep the kids, and parents happy! So keep reading for my road trip packing list, and be sure to stock the car before you hit the road!
