Disney Nature’s Born in China

Disney’s got a blockbuster list of movies coming out this year. From the highly anticipated retelling of the classic Beauty and the Beast with the ever appropriately cast and talented Emma Watson to fan favorite Cars 3, one not to count out is Disneynature’s Born in China. I recently, as part of the invite-only Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, was privy to a preview of this amazing documentary as well participate in a Q&A with the director, Roy Conli. Anyone who knows me would not be surprised that I know little about my own homeland. Despite being Chinese, I was NOT […]

More than Perfect Personalization with 76th & Newbury

When it comes to buying gifts I just love finding that perfect personal gift with that extra touch. Yes there are sites like Etsy, which will still remain a favorite go to, but when 76th & Newbury approached me for a partnership, I was just giddy with glee!  How did they know that I was looking for a personalized travel map?!

What is Coming to America’s Largest Indoor Waterpark @kalahariresorts

Only a 1.5 hour ride outside of New York City, and tucked away in what I can only describe as a beautifully landscaped and very secluded property, is one of the largest indoor water parks in America, Kalahari Resorts & Conventions. Having never been to an indoor water park, we were excited to see what the hype was all about and after our stay last weekend, I think it’s safe to say our family has found a perfect slice of summer in the middle of a long New York winter. Kalahari Resorts & Conventions opened their Pennsylvanian doors in 2015 and […]

About Ellie Beatus

I have experienced many incredible things in my life, but none as amazing as when I become a mom. I may work as a full time registered nurse, but I am also a full time mother.

Holidays with Lakeshore Learning and Love!

The hustle and bustle of the holidays is upon us… some of us are definitely feeling the stress more than others! While I’m sure the kids are mostly looking forward to opening their gifts, our family has changed the conversation. Each night as we wind down for the evening, my family sits down to reflect on the meaning of these holidays. With all three kids now in school, I’m enjoying the time to engage their minds and inspire learning during the holidays. From talking about holiday traditions and meanings, opening their advent calendars to writing holiday cards to friends and […]

Forget Orange, We’re Going Teal

Who doesn’t love Halloween. It’s a favorite in our house.  Having grown up in an anti-Halloween household, it’s been such a treat to enjoy this holiday with my children.  From the time they were wee tots, they’ve been dressed in costumes and gone trick or treating in their strollers, toddling and now running from house to house. Collecting the candies and treats were always so much fun, even if I didn’t always let them enjoy the fruits of their collecting. Once my older son was diagnosed with severe food allergies, I was sure Halloween was done. It was heartbreaking but […]

ANAPHYLAXIS: We’re All at Risk

There has been a lot of focus on anaphylaxis in the news thanks to Mylan’s NOT recent, but gradual price hikes to a shocking approximate $750 per prescription. While that is horrifying and a reality for many families, I am fortunate enough to work for a wonderful healthcare system which covers my 2 sons’ prescriptions.  Between the 2 of them, we always have on hand 4 prescriptions at any given time. Given Marcus’ history alone, with his over 2 dozen life threatening reactions that have required the use of the epi-pen jr, it’s heartbreaking to know that this start of […]

Chores in the Digital Age #VZWBuzz

If you didn’t get the news flash…my daughter got an iPhone for her 9th birthday. I still have mixed emotions about it, and may go on a bit of a rant here, but there is some legitimate and valid arguments from both my husband and daughter. She was definitely getting more social, many of her friends at school already had phones and she was getting left out of conversations and messages, also Verizon’s new plans which just rolled out giving us more data with carry over making it perfect timing. With our upcoming trip to Mexico, the included plan access […]

Recoup and Rejuvenate with FiOS

First let me tell you that going back to school is NO JOKE.  Add working full-time, 3 kids and blogging and it’s a recipe for exhaustion. It doesn’t stop there though, going back to school also involves no breaks and going straight through which meant a summer intensive session for this gal. Intensive doesn’t even begin to describe what the past several weeks have been like.  As my family can attest to, there was no time for anything other than school, school and school.  It was rough for everyone in my family.  We all looked at my calendar, almost religiously, […]
