After fulfilling a childhood dream of one day living in a high-rise building in a big city (eight years in L.A. and 10 in Manhattan), Mary Beth is now partially fulfilling another childhood dream. As a kid, she envisioned her four gorgeous children running through the idyllic countryside while she created pottery in her studio. Well, fast forward 30 years and there is no pottery studio and only two kids but she has the idyllic countryside part down. After studying business and art, and then working in corporate marketing, graphic design as well as event planning and development, Mary Beth is now happily blogging. Always thrilled to find a great family-friendly event to share, being the editor of CT Mommy Poppins is right up her alley.

Our Escape from Trap't in Stamford

If you haven't attempted an escape from an escape room lately, I'm here to say you should try it! Trap't opened a few months ago in Stamford. Located in the back of an office building complex, you'd never expect to find a place like Trap't. Admittedly, When I learned we'd be in the abucted room I was apprehensive at first. I was fearful I'd be running for my life through dark tunnels while being chased by someone with a chainsaw. Once I arrived with my brood, my fears were quickly dismissed by the warm and friendly business owners. The experience was nothing like I expected, thank goodness! I loved how everyone instantly got into the challenge and worked together to figure things out.
