Indiana State Fair

If you missed my money-saving tips this morning on Indianapolis’ B105.7, here’s the rundown!

  • I love the Indiana State Fair, and there is NO reason to think you can’t make it a very affordable day. A couple of discounts to share with you …
    • When you visit Meijer and purchase $20 in Fall Creek apparel, you’ll get a Catalina at the register. Bring that to the State Fair on Monday, Aug 4th and get in to the fair for ½ price.
    • $2 Tuesdays at the Fair are always good, where you’ll pay just 2 bucks for Sate Fair admission, food specials and rides.
    • And next Thursday Aug 7th all state employees AND military personnel and their families receive free State Fair admission. Find even more ways to save at the Indiana State Fair!
  • And lastly, another reminder about ½ price cheesecake today & tomorrow at Cheesecake Factory!

Fake Camping


If you’ve been a reader for a while, you’ve gotten small glimpses of my children. I’ve shared some of their favorite games and books, recipes they’re actually willing to eat, and they’re even in a few pictures now and then.

It’s no joke that parenting is not easy. Like many families, we don’t have a lot of blissful meals together. One child (or all three) hops up when the doorbell rings, someone is complaining about the meal, there are a multitude of interruptions when any of us are trying to speak, and it’s an all-around hot mess.

It’s … chaos.

So when I have friends that have these amazing family vacations and camping trips and make nothing but lasting memories, I either don’t believe them, or I envy them.

Take camping for example. We’re just not ready for The Real Thing. So what did we do instead?

We “fake” camped. [click to continue…]
