It’s not often you think of “making a splash” for the holidays, but just the idea of it sounds like fun, right? Right around now many families are busy and stressed and need some time together to have FUN!
Santa is inviting kids to a very different kind of holiday party – Holiday Splash at Schlitterbahn Galveston Island. During the park’s Holiday Splash, which takes place weekends and select dates from November 28, 2014 through January 4, 2015, Santa is giving surf lessons to kids on the Boogie Bahn. Kids can also make holiday ornaments, swim in an artificial snow storm, and enjoy a sprinkle of holiday cheer at the new Holiday Splash event at Schlitterbahn Indoor Waterpark on Galveston Island, Texas.
A snow storm on Galveston Island? Yes!
ICE LAND: ICE SCULPTURES WITH SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS
A skilled team of 31 internationally-acclaimed professional ice carvers from Harbin, China will dive into 900 tons of ice and transform them into majestic marvels featuring holiday scenes with the beloved Bikini Bottom inhabitants from Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants. Chilled and held at a temperature of 9 degrees, you can witness these works of art as Galveston makes its holiday transformation into a Winter Wonder Island.
Sounds like fun, right? Which part do you think your family would enjoy most?
It’s that time of year again for the Wings Over Houston airshow! We went last year and had a blast! Our kids were just a little excited that Dusty was there last year!
Disclosure: I received compensation in exchange for event coverage. Regardless, all opinions are my own.
This year’s Wings Over Houston Airshow will be another great event you don’t want to miss. This year’s show takes place November 1st and 2nd at Ellington Airport.
As a Disabled Veteran’s wife, I appreciate the military history presented at the Wings Over Houston Airshow. They features a variety of military air crafts. I love how much they focus on wanting to share the history of the military aircraft and honor the men and women who fought for our country. When I read their purpose, I appreciated it even more!
The Wings Over Houston Airshow not only offers the opportunity to learn more about and appreciate the military, but there are also many other educational opportunities as well! I’d venture to say it’s one HUGE educational opportunity. There are pilots to share more about their air crafts. Last year we even got to use flight simulators, which our oldest son absolutely loved!
Of course, we can’t forget the show! We were blown away by some of the stunts performed! Debbie Rihn-Harvey is one of the highest ranked aerobatics competitors in the United States, and I was in awe watching her perform. She was talking through the broadcast system while performing these wild stunts like it was no big deal! It was amazing! She’ll be back again this year, so you definitely don’t want to miss it! Check out this year’s amazing line-up of performers. View the full Schedule.
The Wings Over Houston Airshow is November 1-2, 2014 at Ellington Airport. Gates open at 8am both days.

Could you use a little inspiration? I know as a busy work-at-home mom, I can often feel worn out and even discouraged. I crave fellowship and inspiration – and a little “me” time. We need some time to refresh, right? Well, get ready because you don’t want to miss the It’s Your Time Women’s Conference on September 19th!
Disclosure: I received compensation in exchange for event promotion. Regardless, all opinions are my own.
Because we all need “our time,” The It’s Your Time Women’s Conference Houston is the perfect event for women to get together for a time of fellowship, inspiration, relaxation, shopping, and fun! Throughout the day women will be able to choose custom workshops or Breakout Sessions. There will be 16 different Breakout Speakers with a range of topics from faith, entrepreneurship, health, wellness, and even self-defense. Breakout Sessions (a total of 5) can be chosen upon registration.
Additionally, It’s Your Time features keynote speaker Lisa Whechel. A brief about Lisa Whechel:
Lisa Whelchel, best known for her starring role as Blair Warner on NBC’s “The Facts of Life,” is an author of over a dozen books and founder of MomTime Ministries and “Personal Mom Coaching.” Her latest adventure was participating on Season 25 of CBS’s “Survivor: Philippines” where she tied for second place and won the Sprint “Player of the Season” as awarded by fans.
Exciting, right? Lisa Whelchel offers a wealth of inspiration and knowledge! I imagine everyone will leave feeling inspired and refreshed! With so many available Breakout Sessions It’s Our Time has something to offer every woman whether you need spiritual inspiration, need to spark your business, improve your health and wellness, etc. Women will leave with more inspiration, knowledge, and encouragement in a variety of areas! Plus, it’s time to connect with other women and get some time for yourself! If you’re a business owner, too, it’s also a great time to network with other women entrepreneurs!
Do you like to shop? I know I like to shop (or browse) as a way to unwind and relax. I particularly love shopping events because it gives me a chance to interact with others more as well and learn more about those I am shopping from and with! It’s such a fun experience to me! The It’s Our Time Women’s Conference will feature a Shopping Extravaganza Marketplace!
