Schlitterbahn loves families and the proof is in the ice chest - families can save by bringing their own ice chest to the park! When you combine that with free parking it's clear - you're hard pressed to find a more family friendly park!
Bringing in an ice chest does more than save money for your family - it lets you take care of those fussy eaters and stay all day!
Packing an ice chest with our kids favorites means more time enjoying rides and less time in food lines. Plus at Schlitterbahn we enjoy the best water park while saving money too!
The thing about Schlitterbahn is the ticket price is the end of it - no nickel and dime charges here! You can bring in an ice chest full of food and drink and parking is free.
There's a huge variety of rides - some wild, some mild - and there's plenty of room for you to set up your own picnic.

Schlitterbahn has made a day at the water park even more affordable for my family of seven by offering the option to take your own ice chest filled with snacks for the whole family. (no glass or alcohol) One of my favorite ice chest worthy recipes:

3 Bananas pealed and cut in to about 2" pieces
1 Carton of large strawberry's stems pulled off cut in1/2's
1 Pineapple cut into wheels or squares what ever you prefer
Place fruit in large freezer bags and freeze over night you can use this to snack on by itself or with cool whip.

All moms must spend a majority of time running around and constantly on their feet – good exercise, but what about the negative effects? Unfortunately, all of this time spent on your feet (plus the stress of motherhood) can contribute to the formation of varicose and spider veins!
I’d love to offer you Dr. Luis Navarro, Founder and Director of The Vein Treatment Center, who can offer easy and effective ways to prevent varicose/spider veins, even during your busy day to day life as a parent! Please find a few quick tips below:

Tips for optimizing circulation and preventing varicose/spider veins:
§  GET REGULAR EXERCISE: Any type of exercise that strengthens the "second heart" - the muscles of the calf and foot – is beneficial. Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, 3 times a week.
§  WEAR GRADUATED COMPRESSION STOCKINGS: Compression stockings act like an added layer of muscle, aiding the performance of the "second heart" and venous circulation.
§  AVOID PROLONGED PERIODS OF SITTING AND STANDING: Rotate your ankles and feet whenever possible, take brief walks every hour and point and flex your toes to promote leg vein circulation.
§  ELEVATE YOUR FEET:  Raise your feet 6 to 12 inches above your heart whenever possible to assist circulation. It’s easiest to do then when sleeping.
§  EAT A HIGH FIBER DIET:  Take steps to avoid constipation, as it puts pressure on the venous system.

30 for 30 Sit up challenge

So I started this challenge technically yesterday on the 1st but I'm doing  my post officially today! This is what I look like on day ONE. I have decided to take independentmami's 30 for 30 challenge. I did my set of 30 sit ups last night and OMG it was not easy. I have only been running and spinning so my abs are not in the best of shape. I hope to change that my wedding dress is scheduled to arrive any day now and I want to be at my best for the alterations. I am putting the challenge out there for anyone who wants to join.Just click on independentmami to  Link up your post.  In your post tell us a little about yourself, why you want to do the challenge, pics, or whatever you would like to share.  The more the merrier, right?

Good Luck!

Yurbuds® Inspire line is designed specifically for women.  Since its arrival on the sports equipment scene, yurbuds has made an impact on athletes everywhere as the only earphones with patented TwistLock™ technology, guaranteed never to fall out. The new Inspire for Women features that same technology, and the FlexSoft™ comfort fit, while being specifically designed to fit smaller ears. Available at Target for $29.99 starting in October, these performance fit earphones are sweat and water-resistant, provide exceptional sound, and are the perfect training partner for the female athlete.

These Awsome Ear phones come in a variety of colors and feel great I not only used then for running but cleaning and they do not cause any discomfort or fall out. Yurbuds are the best earphones I have every tried and I've tried plenty. They are the perfect size for the woman's smaller ears and there is an extra set for the larger ear so you cant go wrong with these earphones did I forget to mention they sound amazing too!!

I was fortunate to host an Inspire Yurbuds party and was able to share these incredible earphones with my fellow runners. Lets hope with these great new Yurbuds we can improve our time for our next run in November!
