Are you looking for some new ideas for snacks or lunchbox treats? Wondering what to pack in your bag for a long trip or an afternoon playdate? Well, you've come to the right place. Snacks are a thing in this house. The Jersey Momma's Boy would live on snacks alone if he could (actually, he might just be living on snacks alone, now that I think about it), so I am always on the lookout for healthier snacks or better-for-you treats. I was so excited to attend the Summer Fancy Food Show in New York last week. This event features amazing food vendors from all around the world. I was able to sample so many tasty treats and meet some wonderful people who wanted to introduce me to their products. So here are some of my picks from the show (and you know how I roll, right? No one paid me for this- these are my honest opinions on what tasted really, really good). Onward!

Have you heard of A Day Out with Thomas? Every summer, Hit Entertainment takes Thomas the Tank Engine on the road, and eager kiddos of all ages can head out to visit him at their participating train stations. But is it worth the trip?

One of the best things about visiting the Jersey Shore is hitting up one of its many fabulous boardwalks. Rides, games, entertainment, and...food!! So many snacks, treats and specialties to choose from! Everything just seems to taste better at the shore. So I'm making my own 'Boardwalk Bucket List.' This includes all of the best boardwalk treats to try before summer ends. I realize the list could be infinite, so I've tried to narrow it down to ten of the most scrumptious goodies I could find from boardwalks along the shore. Are you ready?

As a former teacher, I know how nice it is to receive a special gift from a student. And as a mommy, I want to show my child's teachers how much I appreciate them and what a great job they did with him this year. Then there's the artsy side of me who wants to give them something kind of creative, too. So off to Pinterest I went, in search of something cool. And this is what I came up with- an 'Orange You Glad it's Summer?' theme (lots of cute orange goodies, or sunshine themed goodies). Now, how to package them? How about in a soda bottle?

We're heading beyond Jersey for this post, but not too far beyond. America On Wheels Auto Museum is located in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and it's worth the ride if you're a car enthusiast! Well, even if you're not, I think it's a fun place and worth seeing if you're up for the ride.
