Our Visit With “Dawn” and “Sunny” of Lucasfilm’s Strange Magic

On Wednesday, my kid reporter and I were gifted with the opportunity to head to Disney Studios in Burbank, California, to interview two cast members from George Lucas’ new movie, Strange Magic. Premiering January 23, 2015, the Lucasfilm animated movie is the story of two fairy sisters, elves and an adorable imp — along with […]

A Week in the Life of a Working Mom and Blogger

As a blogger, I’m always taking photos. It’s one of the most important parts of blogging, and I love it. I often get weird looks but I’m pretty good at continuing onwards and ignoring it. (I am careful to not include people in photos unless they’re okay with it.) And as a mom, the camera […]


nFuse Bar & Kitchen at the Marriott Anaheim

While California is a great place to raise a family, travel and just enjoy life, there is something special about the nightlife. I’ve lived all over the country and nothing beats heading out on the town in California. Not only is there an incomparable selection of food and entertainment choices, but you can be in the mountains […]

Your Health Is Your Responsibility

I am all for organic, non-GMO foods without the preservatives, dyes, and unnecessary additives. (I recently found it so strange to be taking medicine for a cold and see that it had blue dye in it. Why? It wasn’t required to make the medicine work and I’m an adult, my medicine doesn’t need to be […]

Orange County Restaurant Week March 1 – March 7

Living here in Southern California, I have my pick of food choices. I’m within an hour of every type of food available and I don’t take nearly enough advantage of that. Restaurant weeks come along and remind me of the choices I have and Orange County Restaurant Week is no exception. This is the seventh year […]

Yoplait Greek 100

Starting the New Year Right with Yoplait Greek 100 Calorie Yogurts!

Today’s post is sponsored by Yoplait, by my love for their Greek 100 yogurt option is all my own! (Tough job, getting to try delicious food like Yoplait Greek 100 yogurts, right??) I posted a couple of weeks ago about how I don’t do resolutions. That doesn’t mean though that I don’t plan to start […]


Knott’s Berry Farm Goes Pink for the Cure! #KnottsPink

Did you know 1 in 8 women will be affected by breast cancer? Even if you did know that scary statistic — which I didn’t — isn’t it staggering to think about? 1 in 8. I get a mammogram every couple of years. I’m lucky. My insurance pays for it. Recent changes are making that […]


New Year, New Blog Design!

Yesterday, I took down all the inside Christmas decorations. Both trees, the purple lights on the mantel, the candles, the wreath on the front door, the jingle bells…it’s all gone. I miss the glitter, the sparkle and the seasonal atmosphere it all evoked, but I don’t miss the clutter and am glad to have the […]


2014, You Were Great, But Now It’s Time for 2015

Every year about this time, people ask me what my resolutions are. I always reply the same: I don’t make any. Saying “I resolve to…” implies “I’m going to xxx…” and than you’re obligated, while sometimes life throws kinks in there that you can’t control. I’ll pass. I do make goals though, and maybe it’s […]

Into the Woods, Disney’s Latest Movie

On Friday night, my husband and I were invited to go see Disney’s newest movie, Into the Woods. We’ve done movie pre-screenings before but this was our first time in the Disney theater. What a treat! As a child, I grew up reading Grimm’s Fairy Tales. I remember clearly what the book looked like, and […]
