Rise and Shine June 30 – Regal $1 movies, 4th of July food ideas, Disney kid’s bikes, Lincoln logs and more


Rise-Shine-queen-bee-2015-january

Rise and Shine is my way of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with you! We talk about the new deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help us save time, money or energy. Published Monday through Friday – as I’m able. 

Good morning! I can’t believe it’s the last day of June. This means that if there are any printable coupons you want – print them early today they’ll likely reset or disappear tonight!

We are spending lots of quality time with family here in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. My sweet cousin lives here with her three girls and my kids played with them all day yesterday. The weather has been hot, but not too bad – and the kids spent a lot of time playing in the river. I haven’t been taking any photos – just enjoying time with family and taking the time to relax.

Today we are taking the truck into the shop to get it’s regular scheduled service. Feels a bit strange to get it serviced along the route – but it’s part of keeping us safe and moving along. :) We will also take the trailer to a shop early next week because our hot water heater is a little on the fritz (works with propane, but not electric). Also part of the journey. It’s covered under warranty and Spokane has a great Airstream shop – so it shouldn’t be too big of a deal.

What are you up to this week? Doing anything fun?

Playing-in-water-June-29Our campsite in Clarkston, Idaho was on Mermaid drive – which my daughter loved. On the right, my son plays in lake Coeur d’Alene. We are spending lots of time in the water trying to beat the heat!

Good morning! Welcome to Monday, how was your weekend!?! I’m writing Rise and Shine this morning from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho! We were supposed to be at Hells Gate state park right now, but the temperatures in that area are supposed to be as high as 108 this week – and there wasn’t much for us to do indoors in that area. So we canceled our Hells Gate State Park reservation and headed north to Coeur d’Alene. Temperatures are still high here, but there is more shade and we have lots of family here that we’re able to visit. Yesterday I got to see my sweet Grandma and aunt and uncle who live here. We expect lots of family time this week and playing in the river!

We’d love your ideas for things to do in the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene area – share your comments here.

Fort-Walla-Walla-wagon

Good morning! I hope you’re staying cool – this heatwave is intense here in the Northwest! We left early in the day yesterday and went to the Fort Walla Walla museum – what a fun place this was! I used our AAA card to get a discount on admission – it was $17 for admission for our whole family. We were treated as soon as we walked in the door because the Walla Walla Chamber was practicing in the lobby – beautiful music! I guess they practice around town (read: free performances!) to drum up excitement for their upcoming shows. How neat! The exhibits at Fort Walla Walla museum were so interesting – the kids really enjoyed the pioneer village and looking at the old houses and learning about the inhabitants.

Fort-Walla-Walla-Play-area

The Walla Walla Fort Museum also has a fun playground – the kids loved that, too!

Lewis-Clark-card-game-popsicle

We took it easy the rest of the day – played a new Lewis and Clark card game (like Rummy) and had popsicles in the sun. :) With temperatures nearly 100 degrees we didn’t get to do as much outside as we would have liked – but still had a fun day.

This morning our travels were highlighted on the Washington State Parks blog, Adventure Awaits! And you can read my most recent travel post (added last night) about the Grand Coulee Dam tour.

Today is a travel day – we’re headed to Clarkston, Washington (and then Hells Gate State Park in Idaho)! My grandma’s sister and husband live there and I’m looking forward to seeing them. NOT looking forward to 111 temps predicted for Sunday – yowza! How are you beating the heat? Have you been to Clarkston, Washington (or Hells Gate State Park in Idaho) and do you have tips for things to see or do?

Rise and Shine June 25 – FREE Dominos pizza, FREE Audible trial, Sharpies, Dayspring sale, more


Rise-Shine-queen-bee-2015-january

Rise and Shine is my way of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with you! We talk about the new deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help us save time, money or energy. Published Monday through Friday – as I’m able. 

Good morning! How’s it going today?! I hope your week is going well. After a busy couple days earlier this week – yesterday was a catch-up day. We stuck around the trailer, Mr. Queen Bee ran some errands (like getting his hair cut and picking up some supplies), I got caught-up on email and work, and the kids took a nap. It is completely NORMAL days like this that are going to be key to my sanity on the road. You can’t go-go-go everyday, it’s just not sustainable.

FREE-dominos-no-hitter-pizza

We were able to score a completely FREE lunch thanks to a Domino’s no hitter promotion earlier this week. I just happened to be online when the promo went live Monday and was able to snag a FREE medium size pizza (learn more about promo and sign up for a FREE MLB account here. They do these promos every time there is a no hitter.) Mr. QB picked up the pizza on his way home from errands. I was happy not to cook – the weather is heating up here and should be 96 degrees today and more than 100 tomorrow! I’ve a couple people ask – we DO have air conditioning in our Airstream trailer, so we’re staying cool while inside and are staying safe – well hydrated and staying inside during the hottest times of the day. :)

Community-theater-Walla-Walla

Last night we ventured over to Walla Walla Community College to see a children’s theater production of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory! Admission was only $16 for the whole family – plus the lobby was filled with popcorn and candy – all free to audience members. During intermission they had free chocolate milk, orange juice, brownies and more. :) The kids were just a little excited – both for the play and for the free treats. As we were walking out of the theater my son said, “That was really something!” The kids loved it and I am so grateful that they appreciate the art of theater. Although we’ve only just started our journey I can tell already that the community events will stand out as our favorite experiences on the road.

Prime-audible-free-trial-3-months

I’m really excited for this new promotion – I signed up for it yesterday. For a limited time Amazon has a special offer for Prime members for a 3-month FREE trial for Audible (it’s usually just a 1-month trial offer). At $14.95/month, this is $44.85 value. I’m so excited to try Audible out – being on the road, this will be a great way to listen to books on long car rides. They have some great collections of books, you can sign up for your FREE trial here.

Pinterest 101 Facebook Graphic

I’m also really excited for this! Do you have a small business that you’re trying to grow? Are you trying to reach a new audience with your business?Pinterest is a great way to do that – if you know how to leverage it in your favor. My friend Kate runs a Pinterest-management business Simple Pin Media – she’s amazing – in fact she’s a big reason the Queen Bee Pinterest page is so successful!

Kate wants to help small business owners find success on Pinterest – so she’s rolled out a brand new Pinterest 101 course that will get you up and running with FIVE specific action items:

  • How to set up your Pinterest profile
  • How to create your Pinterest boards
  • How to organize and maintain your Pinterest boards
  • How to optimize your website for Pinterest
  • How to use Pinterest to build your email list

Kate walks you through EACH of these steps. This Pinterest 101 course is currently priced at just $17 – but only for a limited time. This is a STEAL for this information, which is often sold for a much higher price.

Rise and Shine June 24 – Movie theater discounts, FREE library programs, FitFlop sandals, more

Rise and Shine is my way of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with you! We talk about the new deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help us save time, money or energy. Published Monday through Friday – as I’m able. 

Good morning! Welcome to Wednesday! How are you doing today?

Sun-Lakes-Dry-Falls-State-Park-qb

Yesterday was a busy day for us here in Walla Walla. We spent the morning around the trailer and I wrote a detailed post for Take That Exit on our stay at Sun Lakes State Park – we loved it there!

Then we headed to the Walla Walla Grand Cinemas where they have $5 movies all day on Tuesdays – and we saw Inside Out. It had been a long time since we’d been to the theater – and this movie was fantastic – definitely recommend. :)

Jefferson-Park-Pool-Walla-Walla

After the movies we went to Jefferson Park Pool – a local public pool where swimming was only $1 a kiddo. The pool is only 3 feet deep – so it’s perfect for little ones.  The kids had a lot of fun splashing around and being active. After the pool we picked up some groceries and headed back home for a bit. A grilled up some burgers with sautéed mushrooms and onions (we are in Walla Walla!) for dinner.

Library-Program-Milton-Freewater

We finished off the day by driving south into Milton-Freewater (Oregon!) for a free library summer reading program! It was a one-man-show and he told stories, sang songs and did some skits. The kids loved it and it was FREE. We plan to take advantage of free programs like this at libraries across the country. We’ve even heard some libraries will allow you to check out books using your campsite address – we’ll see!

Regal-Summer-Movies-Kids-2015

If you’re looking for inexpensive kid’s activity – out of the heatwave we are having here in the Northwest – Regal Cinemas Regal Summer Movie Express – $1 kids movies is live in cities across the country! Regal Cinemas offers $1 movie admission to popular kids movies at 10 a.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout the summer. You can also check your local city calendar – maybe through the Visitor’s Center – to see what FREE community activities are happening.

Rise and Shine June 23 – Walla Walla (Washington), Ultimate Photography Bundle, Sam’s Club discounts, more


Rise-Shine-queen-bee-2015-january

Rise and Shine is my way of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with you! We talk about the new deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help us save time, money or energy. Published Monday through Friday – as I’m able. 

Good morning! I’m reporting from Walla Walla, Washington this morning! We pulled into town yesterday afternoon. After a few hours on the road we were eager to get outside and we walked around downtown – what a fun community! We are staying in an RV park – so the atmosphere isn’t nearly as charming when we look out our windows – but I am excited to have wifi, laundry services (badly needed!), cell phone reception and grocery stores. I love, love, love the beauty of being in the state parks – but I also love clean clothes and being able to Skype with family. :)

Cobb-Salad-Graze-Walla-Walla

Yesterday afternoon we stopped and had a late lunch at a place called Graze – I was craving a big salad and this place didn’t disappoint with their Cobb salad! My husband had a Torta sandwich and the kid’s meals were only $3 each. It had rave reviews on Yelp and I can see why. Our dining out budget is going to have to be adjusted – we love trying out local restaurants and I can tell already that we’re going to be eating out more than at home. I’m not sure what that budget will look like, I need a few more weeks on the road to figure our habits and preferences and meal planning before completely settling in on a budget. And of course – we’re still being frugal where we can, especially on groceries.

Walla-Walla-Goodwill-finds

Afterward we window shopped and then hit up the local Goodwill. You know how much we love thrifting! Although we don’t have room to buy much, my son needed some more shorts – he’s going through them so fast playing outside so much (a good thing!). So we picked up a Gymboree pair and a GAP pair – both $3.99 each. Score!

Last night the kids found a group of other kids in the campground (the same ages!) and they all played LEGOs at the picnic table at our site. So fun to meet people from all over the country – they were from Austin, Texas, a place on our bucket list.

We’d love to know your favorite things to see or do here in Walla Walla! We are here four nights and hope see as much as we can. Keep in mind that we’re heading into a major heatwave – probably record-breaking, so it could be interesting doing things outside.

Good morning! How was your weekend!?! Did you do anything fun or interesting? I’d love to hear about it.

Sun-Lakes-State-Park

We spent the weekend at Sun Lakes State Park – what fun we had! If you’ve never been to this Washington State park, I definitely recommend checking it out. We stayed three days and we did so much – we rented a paddleboat and swam in the lake, went to the Dry Falls State Park visitor center (FREE) where the kids did a Junior Ranger program and found a geocache, we drove to Grand Coulee Dam and took the tour (FREE) and played miniature golf. We also did a parks program here last night where we learned all about bats of Washington and watched them come out to hunt for the night (also FREE). We head to Walla Walla later this morning – anyone have recommendations for restaurants or activities in the Walla Walla area? We’d love to hear from you!

Lake-Wenatchee-state-park-reviews

Good morning! TGIF my friends. How are you doing today? Do you have any big plans for today or this weekend? I shared a blog post over on Take That Exit yesterday, Lake Wenatchee State Park: Our First 48 hours on the Road. After those busy  first couple days yesterday was the closest thing we’ve had to a LAZY day in weeks. We stayed close to the campsite and took many small hikes and adventures to the lake and the nearby river. I taught my son how to skip a rock on the river – and it skipped FOUR times. He was SO excited and I had flashbacks of my dad teaching me the same trick on a small river in the middle of nowhere Alaska. My dad is the skipping rock master – growing up playing on the banks of Montana streams, he’s had lots of practice. :) We even snuck in a nap in the afternoon yesterday – 2 out of 4 of us were asleep but everyone had a couple quiet hours.

I tried for a couple hours yesterday to find some deals to post – but “the deals weren’t poppin” as I like to say. I couldn’t find any in my favorite spots. Some times it’s like that – it’s just a bummer when I’m looking for them and I’ve set aside time to blog. This morning seems to make up for it – Rise and Shine is full this morning!

Later today we pack back up and head to our next “home” on the road. Travel days are going to be the hardest days for me – in terms of worrying. But hopefully we’ll be settled by this afternoon and all will be well. :)

Lake-Wenatchee-State-Park-play

Good morning! How are you doing today and how is your week going? Yesterday was a our first full-day at State Wenatchee state park. It was a jam-packed day. We hung around the trailer until about noon – then headed over to the lake and the kids played on the shore. The water is still pretty cold for the season – so they just jumped around in it, played in the sand and climbed on the driftwood. It was gorgeous.

Leavenworth-downtown

Then we headed into Leavenworth for lunch and we spent a few hours walking around downtown. What a gorgeous community – I can’t believe we’ve never been here before. We walked through all the fun shops, had ice cream at a local candy shop, found our very first geocache ever (we are hooked!) and then went to Safeway for groceries.

Groceries-Leavenworth-June17

Grocery shopping and meal planning is going to be an adjustment for me as we transition into this new lifestyle. I used my Safeway Just for U app to shop the sales and get discounts. I used a $10 off $50 coupon I spotted in the local paper and my total ended up being $53.21 for everything pictured above (case of water and two large gallons of water not pictured).

I purchased eggs, milk, string cheese $2.99 (after a blinkie), bread, hot dog buns, hot dogs, bananas, apples, avocados, a mini watermelon, lettuce, strawberries, spinach and 2 pounds of deli lunch meat. My favorite deals were the avocados J4U price of $0.87 each and lunch meat J4U price $5.32/lb (cheaper than the packaged stuff). We had turkey sandwiches for dinner last night – with avocado. :) Normally I’d buy a full-size watermelon but due to a lack of space, I paid more per pound for the mini. I was grateful for the $10 off $50 coupon. Kids are having french toast for breakfast and I’m having yogurt we brought from the house. Although it feels like we’re on vacation – we aren’t, this is our new reality, so I’m trying to still eat healthy and buy foods we’d eat at home, too.

Geocache-Lake-Wenatchee-State-Park

Oooh and last night – using the Geocaching app – the kids and I went for a hike and found another geocache! Part of the Washington State Parks 50th Anniversary Geocache program – it was full of treasures. We had never geocached before yesterday – but it was so easy using the iPhone app and I love that it was FREE entertainment. Learn more about geocaching here, where you can create a free account and find geocaches near you! The hike to this geocache was probably 2 miles round-trip and the kids were such troopers – I think having a treasure at the end of the trail helps really motivate them. We bought a bunch of $0.49 trinkets from a local Leavenworth store and left something behind for others to see! Have you geocached before? Do you have a favorite geocache that you’ve found?

I’ll share a full update of our first 48 hours over on the Take That Exit website soon.

Lake-Wenatchee-State-Park

Good morning! How is it going today? I’m writing Rise and Shine today from State Wenatchee State park (Washington). I am so relieved that we made it here safely yesterday – it’s such a big change . . packing up the house and hitting the road (if you’re just tuning in, read more about our journey here). We left our house about 12:30 yesterday and it took about four hours to get here – taking our sweet time as towing a trailer is still relatively new to us.

Lake-Wenatchee-State-Park-Day1

Once we got settled, leveled and unhitched, ate dinner (hot dogs, easy!) we went exploring. The lake here is beautiful! Tons of trees, birds and rocks to check out.  This morning hubby is making scrambled eggs, kids are reading, a hummingbird is trying to figure out my daughter’s purple bike outside, my coffee is hot and the sun is shining. No complaints from me. There will definitely be an adjustment period – getting used to sharing 180 square feet between four people and settling into this new reality – but we’re all excited for what’s to come. I shared some photos over on the Take The Exit Instagram and I’ll probably be putting up a post on Take That Exit in the next day or so with more photos and details.

How are you doing today? If you’re on summer break, how are things going? Leave a comment and let me know!

Good morning! Today is the big day my friends. I’m sitting in my empty house, drinking instant coffee, getting ready to hit the road with my family. We slept in the trailer last night, in the driveway in front of our house, which should officially close with the county today. Well actually, if I’m being honest, I didn’t sleep much – tossed and turned mostly – not sure from excitement or nervousness? Probably a little bit of both. I’m reminding myself that GOOD things can come from stretching our comfort zone, trusting in a bigger power than yourself (don’t be a control freak) and going after a dream, even when it’s a bit scary. I pray for traveling mercies today as we hit the road. And I know that my comfort level will grow the more I stretch it and the more we just get out and DO. And besides – I really need to pull up a chair, dip my toes in a lake and snuggle my kids by a campfire – it’s been too hectic this last month and I’m really looking forward to those moments. Thank you for your prayers, encouragement, emails and Facebook messages leading up to this day – it means so much! I’ll check in on the Take That Exit Facebook page when we reach our first destination. . . .

Rise and Shine June 15 – We hit the road tomorrow! Gymboree FREE shipping, canopy and camping chairs, DEWALT tools and more!


Rise-Shine-queen-bee-2015-january

Rise and Shine is my way of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with you! We talk about the new deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help us save time, money or energy. Published Monday through Friday – as I’m able. 

Waiting-to-Leave-550

Good morning! Well friends, the time is near! We are waiting for a phone call today to head down and sign the final papers on our house sale. They should record with the county tomorrow. We plan to hit the road tomorrow morning and our first destination is Lake Wenatchee State Park! I can’t believe this is happening, seems like just yesterday that we started this process and now we’re on the eve of our adventure. If you have tips or suggestions for Lake Wenatchee or Leavenworth (we plan to spend a day there) – please leave a comment and let us know! I’m hoping if you have visited an area before – that you’ll chime in and give us your tips for favorite restaurants or attractions.

If you want to follow our travels specifically . . . 

But if you could care less about the crazy travel stuff – don’t you worry, I’ll still be delivering the best deals here on Queen Bee. My physical location could be anywhere – but you can always FIND ME here. :) Rise and Shine might be tricky when I’m in places without cell reception or wifi. On days that I can’t personally write Rise and Shine in the morning – we’ll still publish the deals but it won’t have my ramblings at the beginning. It will always be my authentic voice you’re hearing here in the intro, or else it will say that I’m disconnected for the day. The Rise and Shine deals will be be published daily Monday through Friday regardless and you can subscribe to get Rise & Shine delivered via email here.

How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun? Leave a comment and let me know!
