Located just outside of Disneyland Parks, Downtown Disney is the perfect mixture of food and entertainment with a little something to do for the whole family! It’s the perfect getaway when you’re needing that Disney fix, it’s a great date night spot, or even a pregame to your Disneyland Hotel vacation before you head to the parks. Here is what I recommend you eat, see and do while at Downtown Disney…
As you all know Mother’s Day sneaks up on us and next thing you know you’re last minute shopping for something meaningful/useful for your special lady. This year it falls on Sunday, May 14th, which means it’s time to prepare to pamper and spoil our Mamas. Here’s a roundup of some of my favorite ideas this year…
I’ve seen so many blow-dry bars popping up around Orange County and have always wondered what they were all about. I’ve always wanted to try one to see if it’d work on my hair but have always been too scared. You guys, my hair is ROUGH. It’s thick, curly, kinky and nappy altogether. Plus, being a mom it’s pretty rare that I 1. have time to do my hair and 2. rarely want to do my hair when I DO have time.
With all the craziness and chaos in the world today, I often think about our daughter and how we hope to raise her to be accepting of all people and to know her identity rooted in Christ. We also hope that while she’s growing up and starting to build deeper relationships with friends, that she’s known to be loyal, someone who’s selfless, always putting the needs of others before her own.

Buy Hand is a cute little boutique shop in the heart of the HIP District in Laguna Beach. It’s owned by sisters Vidya and Kavita who opened the shop with the vision of bringing its customers the best American made products. Everything in the store is handmade, one-of-a-kind. Buy Hand recently hosted a “Grand Relocation Celebration,” themed Bollywood, at their new location in Laguna in the HIP District.
On March 24-26, the majority of the women at our church traveled to Murrieta Springs, CA for a women’s retreat. We had the opportunity to stay at the Murrieta Hot Springs Christian Conference Center. Many of us left behind our children, our husbands, our families, and all other responsibilities for a weekend away, eager to be in community with other women and spend some much needed time with Jesus.
Here is a little recap of our amazing weekend.
Well…I turned 28 this March which means I’m officially almost 30. Which also means I’m a lot wiser now, right!? 😉 I thought it’d be fun to share 28 random things you may not know about me. Here they go:
