Busch Gardens Williamsburg Virginia Staycation #Spon

We had a blast on Saturday at Busch Gardens Williamsburg Amusement Park.  My favorite thing about the park was how it's set up by different Countries in Europe.  There's always something to explore, and ride. For all ages. Howl-O-Scream Starts this Weekend!!!!!!  I cant wait to see No Escape: Case of Mr. Karver, and  Jack the Ripper.

We started off in Sesame Street Forrest of Fun.  Sy loved all the water play, and Oscars Whirley Worm Ride.  I didn't know that if you, or your child has a disability that you could get a Wrist band that allowed you to Go to the Front of the Line for Approved Rides.  The super sweet, and friendly Ride Operator on Oscars Whirley Worm called someone from Guest Services to come meet us, and fill out the forms.  I thought that was just nice of them, and I had no idea they did that.  It made getting on the rides with Sy a lot easier.  It's kind of like a fast pass, but you can get it free at Customer Relations by the front of the park.

I completely consider Busch Gardens Williamsburg to be an Autism Family-Friendly Place to have fun.

After riding Oscars Whirley Worm a few times, we took a ride on the Aeronaut Skyride.  They are Sky Carts that go completely around the Park for each Country, and you can either get off, or continue on to the Next Stop. You can see everything from the Sky Carts, and it's fun to go through the Roller Coasters, and watch them speed by!  We went to the Land of Dragons, played for awhile.  Got on the Kinder Karussel, and then took the Skyride back to Sesames Street Forrest of Fun to head back towards Busch Gardens Railway.  The breeze was fantastic since it was a hot day, and it went over Bridges, and Ravines.  The Railyway has a view of the Lochness Monster, Animals, and of the Rhine River Cruise.  The Water Cruise shows more of the 339 Acre Park.

The Turkish Delight Ride (Mini Tea Cup saucers was a lot of fun as well, it goes FAST!) So was the Elephant Run, and Little Balloons, If you are worried there's not enough for the little ones, check out all these Kidsiderate Attractions.

Now for the Adults, the Roller Coasters are Amazinggggggggggg! Seriously, go, have fun! And remember that the Skyride can take you to anywhere in the park, It stops at each Country!! So does the Train Ride.

Check out the rides by going here to Busch Gardens Featured Attractions

If you live Local like I do, the best deal is to get the Fall Fun Pass.  It's $80.00 for Unlimited Visits from Now til Oct 30, 2016. Upgrade to Quick Queue Ride Access for a little bit more, also Seat Reserves, Food Plans, and My favorite is the Refillable Cup, thats $12.99 but has Unlimited Free Drinks for the Day, Refills for the Entire Season are Only .99 after that.

Disclaimer: I received compensation for my Opinions, and Photos.  All photos are my own, and Busch Gardens was A LOT of fun.  Sometimes it's had to find ASD Friendly Places. Busch Gardens made us feel welcomed.  Thank you for the Fun times, and for your Employee wanting to make our stay special by her approaching us to tell us about What Guest Services can do.

4 Easy Ways for a #FallReset Plus #Giveaway ?! #Ad

It's been a very hectic month. We do ESY (Extended School Year) during the Summer Months with Sy, and the Teacher comes here just for Summer Vacation, and with Sy being home I haven't had much time to do anything else. We are just now getting back into a routine of things with him going back off to school.

I am thankful that it's that time of the year for a much needed Fall Reset.  Bring on EVERYTHING PUMPKIN!!!!!!!

Today I conquered his Sensory Cabinet, and Playroom (While drinking a Pumpkin Iced Coffee.)  It was just torn apart, and I am guilty of opening the doors, and throwing things in. Out of Sight out of Mind until I go digging in the cabinet looking for a specific item. I don't have time to always be so neat, Sorry (Not Sorry.) I try, but the last time I really did a deep clean on the house was for Spring. I am so ready for the weather change here, and the Color of the Leaves falling.

1. Organize. Get Rid of the Clutter & Organize it. Find some Organization Bins, just a few, so that the things that you do keep, are in their own place, and when you do throw them back into that cabinet (Like I do,) It at least looks clean. If it's something we don't always use, donate it. Someone else would enjoy it.

2. Clean. Use easy tools to clean with. I don't get upset over fallen food on the tables, or dining room floor. Nearly half of all Americans admit to using the 5 second rule when food falls on to the floor. I just use the Swifter, WetJet, the floors are clean enough to eat off of, even tho?? I'm not telling you too.. I'm just saying they are streak free, and Clean enough to.

3. Embrace Your Senses. With a new season, means Seasonal Air Freshener Scents, I love Fall so much. It just triggers different memories I have depending on the Smell. I like to surround myself with that at my home. Febreze Air Effects makes some of my favorite scents like, Fresh Fall Pumpkin, Cranberry, Pine, Big Sur, and Pressed Apple.

4. Relax. Most Importantly is to enjoy the Livable Space you just cleaned. Nothing stays clean forever, just repeat these steps, and be comfortable.  Light that favorite Candle, spray that Air Freshener, and relax under that blanket while the weather cools off.

So if you are like me, and just have a 928,202,198,223,566,231 things going on, Just follow those easy steps for a simple Fall Reset.

Enter my Giveaway to Win your own Swifter Wet Jet, and Febreze Product. Open to U.S. Residents Only. Giveaway begins 9/18-9/29/16, Good luck. Winner will be notified via Email, and chosen at random on Rafflecopter. Please reply within 24 hours of Email or another Winner will be chosen.  Prize is mailed directly from the Sponsor. Thanks!

First you Groupon Coupon then you Save On Your Favorite Sites #GrouponCoupons #Ad

If you are Shopping Online, and you are Not Using Coupons you might as well still be using Dial up, and Walking around with Pagers while wearing Colonial garments.  Seriously, I can't see life without using Coupons, like Groupon Coupons.  It's much, much more than just $$$$$ Off Coupons, but % off, B1G1 Free, and some Codes even have Free Shipping.  I always check the Groupon Coupon Codes when shopping to see if the Store I am shopping at has a promotion going on.  My advice for online shopping is, Always check for promotional codes to use at Check out. Always! It's the best thing to do to save money.

I was just buying some items from GearBest, and they are like Groupon, a Site with Affordable Items, Even Pokemon Toys, and other Things at already low prices.  I was amazed when I saw Groupon had a Gearbest Code to use as well for 10% Off, also, always check to see if the Store lets you stack Online Coupon codes.  Some do, some don't, but I always check to see if I can use a Free Shipping Code, with a % Off Code.

Just remember to do these Steps First,

1. Go to Groupon Coupons, and Search for the Store you Want to Purchase from, and from Great Promo Codes, and Simply Click the Button Under the Store to Apply the Coupon.

2. Get your Shopping on.  I don't know about you, but being able to buy everyone something on my list, at a fraction of the Price of what others Buy products for makes me feel good being able to make them happy too.  It's really as simple as Searching for that Coupon Code and make Sure it's being used at Check out.

Don't forget to Check out Groupon Coupons on Facebook, and Twitter.  Sometimes Groupon shares Promotional Codes there too.

Whats the Time? It's time To Save Money, with Groupon Goods #Groupon #ad

Anyone else Count down for Birthdays, and Holidays?? The Next major event in my Life, is My son's Birthday. Usually because it's before Christmas he is left out on the Gift Department. Or Christmas Gifts soon become Birthday Gifts.  I found some amazing deals on Groupon Goods to get him a gift while still having money to get myself that new mini air conditioner. I can buy both from the same site without waiting in line at a store, or wait for Black Friday, or 2-Day only deals when Groupon always has amazing Gifts in my budget. They will think I spent at least 70% more than I actually did on the same products without leaving the house.  I'm all for buying every ones Gifts at the same time, and one less thing on my To-Do List.

For Sy,  A Flying Robot Copter.

For Me, A Hand Held Portable Air Conditioner, 

There are 1,000 of different Groupon Goods available for purchase. It's amazing, and already next to clearance, if not cheaper prices. I also really like that Groupon has deals all the time for being a first time Buyer, or even just subscribing to their E-mails. That is a great way to get me to buy more when I know I can get a deal, on top of a deal. I noticed Groupon updates on their Facebook, and Twitter often, even sharing coupon codes at times. That's why it's important to follow your favorite websites social media to see what kind of sale, or promotion is going on.

3 C's of Survival Keychain Review #Survival #Emergency #KeyChain #Kit EDC KeyChain

I've been looking for a survival key chain for a long time now. There are two things that I never leave home with out. Those two things are my keys, and something that attaches to them with my everyday carry items. This Paracord Keychain Emergency Kit gaps some of those items that My EDC Keychain was lacking in. I didn't have a Whistle before, Fishing Kit, Measuring Tool or a Compass on my Keychain before.

I also like that this survival keychain does have some of the C's of Survival.

Cordage (with the Paracord, and Fishing Line.)
Combustion (With the Flint, and Tinder.)
Cutting (With the Cap Opener/Scrapper.)

I really like the Keychain has a Carabiner at one end, and a regular Metal Loop at the other so that I can attach my Knife, and Flash Light to. I received product for Review. Overall I am very pleased with this Keychain, and the moment it came I already attached my Keys, Knife, and Flash light too. I am keeping it on me at all times, since I attached my Car Keys to the Carabiner end near the whistle, and Bottle Opener Tool.

I received Product free for Review, Check the Keychain out on Amazon by going here,

#ShareYourSight You Buy A Pair, They Donate A Pair! @glassesdotcom #Ad

I wanted to share with you all this amazing website that gives back when you purchase a pair of glasses. 1.1 Billion People do not have access to an eye exam, let alone a pair of glasses. Together we can change that with partnering with OneSight. I love what this company is doing. After a customer purchases a pair of glasses, donates a pair of glasses to OneSight. They donate to both Local, and Global OneSight Vision Clinics. Since 1988 OneSight Vision Clinics have served 9 million people in 41 Countries and 49 States.

I really believe if you are ordering Eye glasses or Prescription Sun Glasses for yourself, your spouse, and your children, at least order them from a site like that have what I consider great values by donating to OneSight for every pair bought. As a customer all we have to do is go about our normal Order, and does the rest.

I ordered mine online. Ordering Online was easy. There are so many name brand frames, and even prescription sun glasses to choose from.  We had a lot of fun with the Virtual Try On App.  My kiddo is autistic, and sensitive to light. Well fitted Glasses, and Prescription Sunglasses are a must when we go out. I saw great styles for the whole family. What I like about, is that it's great quality eye glasses, and a 100% satisfaction guarantee, if the frame, or glasses are not what you want, you can either have them adjusted at a Lenscrafters Store, or you have 15 Days to return, free. They have whats called a Free In-Home Try-On. I don't know of any other glasses site that does that.

I also wanted to point out the great customer service has. I immediately got a rep the moment I hit recent order on the dial pad. And she walked me through how to measure my sons pupil through the ridge of his nose, and to the center of the other pupil. I can say if you have any questions, or concerns, definitely call, She was one of the nicest Reps I have talked to in a long time about an online order, and how to email them my RX. After I got off the phone with the Eye Glass Specialist Rep from, My glasses were here the next day!
