Childhood memories include some of my favorite shows and movies, and one of those were the Disney classic Mary Poppins that featured Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke. It was and still is one of my favorite movies.
Mary Poppins has recently flown into Toledo Ohio with the winds, to grace us with her presence at The Stranahan Theater and I was lucky enough to take my family to see her live on stage!
I’ll admit, as excited as I was to see Mary Poppins live on stage, I wondered how it would compare to the movie. I mean you have songs stuck in your head, with Julie Andrews singing, how would this compare?
What I found interesting was that although Mary Poppins had so many elements from the original movie in the play, they also had many scenes and songs that were not featured in the movie. It didn’t take away from it though, it actually made the show more enjoyable!
You have known songs like Supercalifragilisticxpialidocious, Chim Chim Cher-ee and of course Step in Time which had an amazing dance number that everyone enjoyed. But you also have songs like Practically Perfect, and scenes like Mrs. Corry’s Place with songs that are new to you, but will stay stuck in your head just as much as the old songs have.
Set design, was unbelievable! They would appear from different area’s of the stage, they would slide in, fade out, and flip around. Designs and props were just amazing, the details and colors were something you wouldn’t forget…Ever!
Mary Poppins is one show you don’t want to miss, for yourself or your kids. If they’ve never been to the theater before, this is the perfect show to take them to, however, I do have one word of warning….The show is LONG… I took my girls who are 7 and 9, and although they loved the show, still talk about it and have told everyone about it, it was really long and we were up pretty late. The show starts at 7:30pm, but by the time we got home, it was almost 11:00 and on a school night, that wasn’t fun in the morning.
If you have younger kids, I’d advise to take them on a weekend or Friday night to see the show.
Mary Poppins will be at The Stranahan Theater in Toledo until March 3rd. Tickets are still available, start at just $28 and can be purchased here.
This is a family friendly magical night you don’t want to miss out on!

Now me and my family, we’ve never been to a Monster Jam event, this will be our first one. So what can we expect? Besides the extremely loud noise? Check out some interesting facts about Monster Jam Events:
- At Monster Jam, monster trucks face off in two different forms of competition — side-by-side racing and freestyle:
- Side-by-side racing – traditional bracket racing, where the first truck, with the least amount of penalties, crosses the finish line is declared the winner.
- Freestyle competition – allows drivers a limited amount of time on the open floor to show off their skills. In this category, the fans serve as the judges.
- 2007 was the 25 year anniversary for the Grave Digger Team
- More than 4 million Monster Jam fans attend events each year worldwide
- The World Finals in Las Vegas, NV brings 24 of the top trucks in the world to compete for the World Freestyle and Racing Championships. Competitors are by invitation only.
- A monster truck race team will travel 45,000 Miles / 72,400 kilometers a year by land to attend events.
- Typical monster trucks cost $600,000 yearly to build, staff, compete, transport and maintain on the Monster Jam tour.
- Steel body full-size cars are the vehicles typically crushed during a monster truck event.
- Cars, as well as vans, buses, motor homes, airplanes and ambulances, are attained from local junkyards and returned after each event.
- Average number of cars crushed per year: 3,000.
This isn’t typically the type of thing we go to, but I’m kind of excited to see it… It sounds just like that… EXCITING! I can’t wait to go, how about you?

Hey guys! I know my readers are from all around the world, but with this post, I wanted to focus just on those readers who are in my own local area.
I’m super excited to announce that I’ve partnered with Deal Co-Op and have launched DealMoms Toledo! DealMoms Toledo is a posting of ‘Groupon like’ deals specifically in the Toledo and surrounding area. I’ll be offering amazing deals from local businesses to families in our community.
Here’s how I got involved: I was approached by Melissa who heads up the Greenlake Moms site and talked to her a bit about how she had started a local moms ‘daily deal’ store in her own small community and how it’s worked out. I was intrigued by it, and decided it would be a great way to feature more local businesses so DealMoms Toledo was born. As soon as we hit 500 e-mail subscribers the first deal will be launched!! If there’s a business that you know about and would love to see us put out an offer just let me know! Or if you are a local business who would like to be involved please contact me.
Toledo used to be a great growing city, and it’s sad to see some of the local neighborhood businesses not gaining much traffic so my goal is to provide them with local consumers who will come back again and again after discovering them for the first time on DealMoms Toledo. 90% of the deals will be from the Toledo area and the focus will be to find businesses, services and attractions that are great for moms and families!
Please feel free to sign up now at : www.dealmomstoledo.com
Please also feel free to share the site with your friends and family. Even though the deals will be community focused we want to extend the offers to friends, family and neighbors. We will have national and online deals for businesses outside of the local area from time to time as well.
If you have a request to either offer a deal or see a specific deal offered in our store please feel free to contact me.
