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.
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.
Last year, we finally ventured to our local waterpark, Splish Splash Long Island. The kids were finally old enough to really enjoy the thrill rides and we seemed to max out of our toddler favorite, Sesame Place. Our day at Splish Splash was a 2017 highlight, with the kid’s talking often and fondly of our trip! So we were so excited to be invited back this year to check out the two new rides at Splish Splash, Long Island!
Momma To Go would like to thank Splish Splash for hosting us. As always, all opinions are my own.

Last spring, I received a Facebook notification that someone tagged me in a post, asking me to join their Tough Mudder team. Despite having no idea what Tough Mudder was, I instantly replied, HELL NO. I’m not really tough and I don’t love mud. Fast-forward a few weeks, when working out with some of those signed up for the race, the trainer complimented me and said “Harmony, you are so strong.”
That really resonated with me. And for some reason connected me back to the Tough Mudder invite.
I went home and signed up.
And honestly, it was one of the best things I HAVE EVER DONE. So I am excited to share my Tough Mudder Long Island experience with you, to give readers my best Tough Mudder Tips, and to encourage you to check out this awesome event!
Considering we just survived a BombCyclone and the latest Polar Vortex, its safe to say winter is here. Even though I’m longing for a trip to my favorite local beach, I’m accepting the fact that its time to stay indoors. Now if you are over staying in you own house, I mean how many hours can one spend playing xbox? check out this list of the best Long Island indoor activities.
Not local? No problem, take these ideas and look for similar experiences in your area. Need help finding something , reach out in the comments!
Fall is such a fun season! Especially when the weather has been so warm here in the Northeast! The kids are finally back to school and its not so terribly hot! Where I live here on Long Island, fall is such a great time for outdoor activities without the oppressive heat.
I also think fall is a great time for travel (in fact, in the travel industry it’s called the shoulder season – that transitional time between summer travel and winter getaways). In my experience you can get some great deals on trips, and everyone knows this is one of the best times to visit theme parks.
I actually do enjoy this time of year, up until January when well, winter. But I do love the fall holidays – Halloween and Thanksgiving, and the coziness of fall food – think squash, apples, and of course pumpkin everything!
So today I am rounding up my best of fall – from my favorite activities, products, travel and links to some great fall posts that will hopefully inspire your best fall season!
On both of our Legoland visits we were able to visit new Ninjago exhibits. In Florida, the Ninjago ride has JUST opened, and it proved to be one of our favorites! At LDC, the giant play area has recently been revamped into a Ninja theme! Modeled after the Temple of Airjitzu, the attraction’s new LEGO® Ninjago City Adventure play structure puts guests’ physical skills to the test with more than 20 interactive features including a vortex spinning barrel, a spiral slide of lights, lightning buzzer bars, crisscross maze, vertical rope climb and more, as they fight to save Ninjago City.
Today we were super excited to return to the Legoland Discovery Center for their LEGO Ninjago Days!
Wow! What I have learned this past two weeks from being sick, and spending a lot of time scrolling through social media feeds, is there is no season more polarizing than fall.
I’m sure you have seen all the memes, the anticipation of the #PSL (personally, I am not a fan) and friends rushing off to Trader Joe’s for all things pumpkin!
Then there are folks like me, who love the heat. And summer. Days spent at the beach and pool. For me fall, is trying to hang on to an extension of my favorite season. Hoping for that warm weather to continue way into October. In fact, #SeptemberIsStillSummer is one of my favorite hashtags!
But one “fall” activity that I do dig is apple picking! It’s one of my favorite yearly traditions. And I say, “fall” in quotes because honestly if you wait too late into September, all the apples will be gone!
Since moving to Long Island, our favorite place to pick is Lewin Farms. And since I have also seen so many “What are the best places to pick apples on Long Island” posts, I figured I’d answer that question and help many families start some new traditions of their own!
As far as fitness goes, I have a wide variety of interests. I like to run, ride my bike, I go to Zumba once a week and I work out at Crunch as well. I do a small group training class on Sundays and I try to incorporate some weight training throughout the week. But one of my favorite activities is a Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga session!
I love where we live – especially in the summer months. Honestly, there isn’t too much of a need to plan big getaways, there is so much to do here on Long Island! But even though I have lived here almost my whole life, there was one place I was really hoping to get to this summer! So a few weekends ago we took a Fire Island Day Trip!
