I am very honored to report that I will soon be blogging about the 2015 City of Hope Let Them Eat Cake Fundraiser. This year’s theme is Masterpieces of Cake and will feature almost 40 creations from all types of cake connoisseurs. Not to mention that there will be a number of celebrity cake judges on hand! This event raises money for City of Hope, a leading research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening illnesses.
A few weekends ago, we had the pleasure of attending the Philadelphia Travel and Culinary Expo. Now, if there’s two things my husband and I love in life, it’s food and traveling. We are always trying new recipes and going out to new restaurants. Plus, we go on road trips as frequently as possible. This expo was right up our alley.
Pack your bags and meet me at The Valley Forge Casino Resort! They are hosting The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Travel and Culinary Expo on February 21st and 22nd. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am about this event. Not to mention that I have been given special promo codes to save my readers money on ticket prices!
Sometimes I find myself busier during the winter than the summer! Then other times, it feels like I’m going to kill somebody if I don’t find something to do outside of the house. As you know, I also pride myself on finding free or reasonably priced events. I am here to tell you that there are still a ton of fun, free (or low cost) events in your area, even in the winter. Trust me. We live in a beach town so if I can find stuff, you can too. Some of the places that we find things to do include:
My daughter and I were lucky enough to attend a Craft Night at one of our favorite local consignment shops, KidzClozet. We haven’t shopped there in awhile so we were so excited to drop by and check it out again. It didn’t disappoint! They have really expanded and have a ton more merchandise than I remembered. They sell kids, junior and maternity clothes at great prices and everything is in great condition. They have books and even a room with toys and other family-related things in the back of the store. They have a kid’s play area and my daughter couldn’t get enough. That was my favorite too since I could shop in peace for a bit!
