Summer Favorites

This week I visited NBC’s The 10! Show studio to showcase some of our favorite outdoor Summer activities — it was totally awesome! I had far too much fun helping Lu Ann to express her inner-child! We had a BLAST!! In case you missed the show, here’s the clip:

Here is a list of the links mentioned in the clip:

Solar Powered Lunch

Fun Fossil Dig

Water Comet Toys

MEGA Bubble Wands

A BIG thank you to everyone on The 10! Show for welcoming me back again. It was a pleasure, as always!


  1. Wow! Awesome clip! You’re a blogger celeb!


    • LOL It was so much fun!! I forgot to mention this earlier, but after we got done taping, a couple of the security guards and camera guys came over to make bubbles with me!!!! SO much fun — no one could resist the power of HUGE bubbles!! πŸ™‚

  2. Good for you-thats awesome! πŸ™‚

  3. The video is not working πŸ™
    I am so excited for you though!!!
    Have a super Sunday!


    • Hi Jody!

      It should be working, but may take a little while to load. Hope you can get it work! xoxo πŸ™‚

  4. You are such a celebrity!! Way to stay calm on TV. You did a great job! I love that the activities you chose have been my favorite ones…I still need to get around to making that pizza box solar oven.

    • Thank you SO much!! Yes yes yes make the solar oven — we have re-used ours a bunch of times, so it was definitely worth a few minutes to put it together. Have fun! xoxo πŸ™‚

  5. Yup, you’re a celebrity! Fabulous clip. I loved seeing you in action and you so featured my favorite FFFB fun stuff. πŸ™‚ How in the world do you get gigs like that? Do you send out press releases? Anyway, congratulations! Love it!

    • Thanks, Petula! So glad you liked it!! I’ve been doing segments for them for a long time now, so usually the talent booker contacts me to see if I can put together a segment for a particular date and we go from there. This was the first time I was out on the patio, and it was a blast!!

  6. So, so , so, SO cool! I am glad to know you are using your “15 minutes of fame” for the purpose of helping families entertain their children, and not something that could get you arrested… ;0)

  7. How exciting!

  8. You are such a natural on television, and such good posture! Thanks for the reminder, that I need to give the giant bubbles another try πŸ™‚

  9. You’re FAMOUS!! Such a great video, you were made for tv. You really should have your own show. Kids and Mom’s would love you. We ll we already do through your blog. Loving the design as well!

  10. So proud of you! This is great!

    My kids & I actually made those “comets” a few summers back but I love that you used zip ties and added the ribbons! I just used rubber bands and they kept coming apart. Duh! Can’t wait to make them your way now! πŸ™‚

  11. Congratulations! You and your website really ROCK! Wishing you continued success!

  12. This is video is super fun! Congrats on the media coverage! It’s about time they recognize talent =)

    • Thanks so much, Abigail! I was really having far too much fun over there… Hee hee!! πŸ™‚
