Let's Visit Medieval Times: A Jersey Momma Review

I was looking for a review of Medieval Times ages ago and could not find the information I needed. I wanted an honest opinion on what age group this show was for, what it entailed, and how the food was (that's just how I am, you know?). And since I didn't find exactly what I was looking for out there, I decided to see the show for myself and bring you my very own review (because I know I can't be the only one out there wondering what Medieval Times is all about!). This was not written as a sponsored post, but after I published it, I was invited back by the folks at Medieval Times to see their show again, this time featuring their queen (gasp!).  So if you haven't seen the show in a while, you MUST go see the queen!

Transitioning Back to School with Creative Lunch Box Notes

Going back to school is not always easy for kids.  As a child, I loved school, but The Jersey Momma's Boy doesn't hold the same affection for education!  Crazy, right?  I'm a former teacher.  The teacher's kid doesn't like school?  Figures!  Anyway, who knew that some lunch box notes would help him make the transition back to school this year?
