Harlem Globetrotters Las Vegas - Review

Disclosure - free sample provided.

I have always enjoyed going to see the Harlem Globetrotters.  I remember going as a child.  The Harlem Globetrotters are amazing.  That was about 30 years ago.  Did you know that the Harlem Globetrotters are celebrating being around for over 90 years.  This truly is impressive, but it isn't even a question as to why they have been so popular for so long.  







The Harlem Globetrotters played at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.  We really enjoyed the event.  The Globetrotters combine basketball, with comedy, stunts, and so much more.  It is truly an entertaining event.  They get the crowd involved.  This is a family friendly event.  Children absolutely love it.  My 9 and 11 year old had a great time.  My husband and I enjoyed it too.  We enjoyed the basketball, but the Globetrotters had us hysterical.

Do you have a favorite Globetrotter?  I truly think my favorite is Big Easy, but it is hard to pick a favorite.  They are all talented at what they do, and make the events special for everyone that attends.  I suggest checking out a Harlem Globetrotters game if they come to a city near you.

I am always looking for different ways to style my hair.  I received a copy of Hairstyled by Anne Thoumieux and I was impressed with this book.  It really gives you so many different ways to style your hair.  It has 75 ways to braid, pin and accessorize your hair.  This is a great book to have if you are bored with your hair, and want to do something different.  These are not haircuts, though.  The book is full of different ways to style the hair you currently have.

The book has styles for long hair, and short hair.  The book is really easy to follow.  The instructions are given in easy to follow terms.  The book has a variety of different braids.  The book instructs on braids for all different occasions.  The book offers options for your hair that are casual, but also perfect for fancier outings.  

I was really impressed with the section on buns.  I have never been able to create a great looking bun.  This book explains so much, and makes it easy to create the perfect bun.  The book offers instructions a variety of different types of buns too.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.

The Mapmaker's Children by Sarah McCoy

Disclosure - free sample provided.



I am always looking for new books to read.  I was recently introduced to The Mapmaker's Children by Sarah McCoy.  Sarah McCoy is a New York bestselling author.  You may know her from some of her other books.  She is known for The Baker's Daughter, and The Time it Snowed in Puerto Rico.  The Mapmaker's Children was released on February the 9th.  

The Mapmaker's Children is a great historical fiction read.  The book is about the daughter of an abolitionist.  She then uses her talent to create maps for the underground railroad.  The neat part about the story is that she hides the maps in paintings.  This book is also about a woman who has had trouble having children.  She then finds out that she is able to have children.  

The Mapmaker's Children is an interesting read that takes you back in history.  This really is a heartwarming story.  You can learn more about the author here, or read more about the book here.

Monster Jam World Finals 2016 Review

Disclosure - free sample provided.



This is now the third year we have attended the Monster Jam World Finals.  We are always so excited to go to this event.  This is a family fun event in March that is held in Las Vegas.  This is a huge Monster Jam event.  It is absolutely amazing, and so much fun.  




Each day starts off with a pit party.  We love the pit party.  There are so many trucks on display to look at.  This is a great way to see these trucks up close.  They truly are impressive.  They also have many drivers out at the pit party signing autographs.  We always go to the pit party before the event to have some fun.  The pit party ends with a truck parade.  The trucks drive by, and this really adds to the fun!









We went to the racing championship on Friday night.  This is where the top trucks complete for the championship.  This event is full of excitement.  We loved watching all of the trucks race down the dirt track.  This year we watched Morgan Kane take home the championship.  Morgan Kane was driving Grave Digger this year.  It was really neat to see all these trucks compete.  




Do you have a favorite Monster Jam truck?  My daughter personally love Monster Mutt Dalmatian.  My son has always been a huge fan of Max-D.  This year we enjoyed some of the new trucks.  The Gas Monkey truck was really impressive.  I really liked the new Alien Invasion truck too.  

The Monster Jam World Finals is something we look forward to every single year.  It is great for kids, but adults love it just as much.  This is really an event that is worth checking out if you love Monster Jam.  We are always impressed year after year.
