Collin & Piper If you’ve been following Hip2Save for a while, you likely know that April 1st is a fun day around here. We usually have quite a few funny posts, lots of giveaways and much more. Due to April 1st falling on Saturday this year, and because it’s also during our Spring Break here in Boise, Idaho… well, I’m sad to say that we aren’t celebrating like we normally do.

However, since I know many of you love giveaways, we’ve decide to still host one in honor of April 1st! Just head on over here to enter to win one of TEN $25 Starbucks gift cards! This giveaway will end tonight, April 1st, at 10PM MST. Good luck all, and Happy April Fools’ Day!

On a side note, I thought I’d share the very special Christmas gift my kids received. Last year, my husband and I decided that we really didn’t want to give the kids more “Stuff” for Christmas. Instead, we opted to give them the gift of an incredible experience, and some very meaningful family time. Memories truly are the best gift of all.

We surprised them on Christmas day with an amazing trip to Peru! AND – that surprise trip is actually taking place right now, during their spring break. With that said, I thought I’d share a few pics with you all – my Hip2Save family. ❤️

Our experience gift made for amazing memories, including:

Taking in the sights of the Inca City of Machu Picchu! What a breathtaking view. 😍


Not only did we enjoy the view, but we also got to explore. The construction and architecture that went into the various buildings in Machu Picchu are fascinating.

Volunteering at a school – one of the BEST parts of the trip!

The school where we volunteered is so resourceful. We helped them to create sun shade with painted plastic bottles.

…And finally, just being together – talking, laughing and experiencing SO many firsts as a family. ❤️
