Parenthood is full of new experiences! It’s so crazy to think that most things we do without a thought are first time experiences for your children. Like seeing a movie in a theater, for example. We took our daughter (who is almost two years old) to see CoCo! (It’s such an amazing movie!). We had a great experience and so I wanted to share some tips, that worked for us, that will hopefully make your experience go as smoothly as possible as well.
Well, well, well, SoCal families. Since it looks like we’re not going to experience a true cold winter (do we ever??), we can, however, experience something somewhat similar thanks to The Queen Mary’s CHILL event which is back for another season of icy family fun! This year, attendees will experience America’s first Ice Adventure Park, and holiday traditions from around the world. Let me tell you, it’s overwhelmingly awesome (and COLD).
At our house, we read books nearly every night. Our daughter loves to read! We love finding new books each season to read to our daughter. Here are a few of our favorite books that we’re reading this Holiday season. They are fun, festive and educational in some way!
Freshly Picked, the masterminds behind the adorable and stylish children’s moccasins that all Mamas obsess over, just gave us all yet another reason to love them. They just announced that they’ve collaborated with none other than DISNEY; one of the most iconic brands in the world, to bring us one very magical collection. You better believe our daughter will be rockin’ some of these adorable shoes at the Parks this season!

I keep hearing about all of these interesting places all over Southern California, and think to myself, “Do I live under a rock!?” How have I not heard of these?? One place, in particular, is Great Wolf Lodge; an indoor water park resort. Everything at the resort was built and designed with families in mind. We were invited as a family to check it out for a day and loved it. Here are 11 reasons why we’re definitely coming back to Great Wolf Lodge (and bringing a large crew with us).
Balancing the demands of motherhood, a career and being a wife is no joke. I have no idea what the heck I’m doing most days, but that’s what makes life interesting. There are times, though, when I start to feel overwhelmed and I need to take time to regroup and revitalize so that I can be fully present with the people in my life. I heard that going to a sauna is a good place for that. So I tried one.
Santa’s Village is officially open for the Holidays at South Coast Plaza and it is pure magic. I wouldn’t expect anything less from South Coast Plaza, the premier mega mall of Orange County. Everything they do is above and beyond, so of course they would go all out for Christmastime.
Ain’t no party like a Disney Vacation Club party cause a Disney Vacation Club party don’t stop! On Wednesday, November 15, 2017 our friends invited us as their special guests to attend the Disney Vacation Club Moonlight Magic event at Disneyland.
We love taking our daughter to Pretend City Children’s Museum in Irvine, CA. It’s a place where children learn to play creatively through imaginative play in a museum designed as a small city. The exhibits at the museum encourage kids to play, learn and explore how the real world works.
Some of you may not know this, but I am completely obsessed with Broadway musicals. I love the singing, the acting, the dancing, everything really. When Hamilton debuted on Broadway, I listened to the entire soundtrack everyday on Spotify for months straight. When I heard the news that the show was coming to Los Angeles, I knew I had to find a way to go!
