Summer Fun in Connecticut, Bucket List

Thursday, May 15, 2014

Hey everyone! If you’re anything like me, you like to plan your outings long before you need to do them. I made a list of the things I’ve done last summer. It’s kind of like a summer fun bucket list. I hope you enjoy it, and it helps you with your summer plans. 

Free things to do: 

1.       Drop in programs at your local library. Reading, crafts and mingling with other parents.
2.       Check your local library for museum and state park passes.
3.       Visit North West Park in Windsor, visit the animals and play on the playground.
4.       Enjoy a free concert at Elizabeth Park, check out the gardens.
5.       Enjoy the trails at Dinosaur State Park
6.       Head on over to Addison Park in Glastonbury which has 3 playgrounds, basketball hoop, soccer field and pool.
7.       Visit March Farm in Bethlehem, It’s free to visit.
8.       Head on over to Gay City State Park in Hebron
9.       Bushnell Park has a beautiful view to the city, a pond and a playground.

Other things to do:
1.       Head on over to Wickham Park for their many gardens, animals and more $4.00 a car Monday-Friday
2.       Mystic Aquarium, followed by Mystic Seaport. (Find out if your library has library passes for free or reduced admission.)
3.       Check out the new exhibits at the CT Science Center.
4.       Take a ride on the ferry from Rocky Hill to Glastonbury. $5.00 Per car.

My Epiphany

Friday, May 2, 2014

You know, I had an epiphany. I loved dolls growing up, and I know have a daughter…I’m sure there are plenty of mom’s who love these too… One word, a whole new world:


I graduated years ago and I haven’t done anything related to fashion. Why the heck haven’t thought about this sooner. 

My daughter is going to eventually play with Barbie, who is going to somehow/ sometimes wear clothes. 

I thought about it all night, like I can seriously become a fashion designer, but in the Barbie world.

So here you got it, my epiphany.
