Shopping at ALDI this Holiday Season! #PrimeroALDI

Shopping at ALDI this Holiday Season! #PrimeroALDI

If you're a mom, then you know how much grocery shopping is a part of your life. Sometimes it seems like I'm at the grocery store every single day of the week, sometimes I find myself even visiting more than one grocery store to find everything I need. Sometimes a trip to the grocery store can be a welcomed break from the kids and sometimes a trip with the kids can seem like you can now add animal wrangler to your resume. Whatever the situation is, grocery shopping is necessary and I am so thankful that we have a brand new ALDI in our neighborhood to make my life easier. #Sponsored

Disney/Pixar's The Incredibles 2! Coming to DVD/Blu-Ray November 6th!

I don’t know about you, but we’ve been having a pretty Incredible month-long Halloween. Disney-Pixar’s The Incredibles 2 is now available for digital download and will be available on DVD/Blu-Ray on November 6th. One of my favorite things about Halloween is seeing all of the kids dressed up and I have a feeling this year there will be quite a few Incredible costumes. In fact, if you keep scrolling, you’ll get to see me as Edna! #Incredibles2

Dickey's Barbecue Pit-- All You Can Eat Now Through October 28!

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #RibsAndABigYellowCup #CollectiveBias. There’s something about Fall and the start of Football season that makes me crave ribs. During the Summer I might be in the mood to make them myself, but once the weather starts cooling down and the sun sets a little earlier, I kinda want someone else to make them for me. It just so happens to be perfect timing because starting October 1st through October 28, you can get all you can eat ribs for $19.99 at Dickey's Barbecue Pit.

NHMLA-- Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibit

NHMLA-- Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibit

The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles is one of our favorite places to visit throughout the year. If you grew up in LA then you most likely visited either on your own or on a school field trip. One of the reasons why I love NHMLA so much is the constant exchanging of exhibits. You can always count on seeing some of the classics and witnessing something new. We recently attended a media preview for the newest exhibit, Wildlife Photographer of the Year.

Get Your Heart Ready for Disney's Christopher Robin (Now in Theatres!)

Get Your Heart Ready for Disney's Christopher Robin (Now in Theatres!)

Are you ready for Christopher Robin? I wasn't sure if I was ready to see some of my favorite childhood characters come to life. I will tell you right now what made it work so well for me, the voices. The voices were spot on. The minute I heard Winnie the Poohs voice, I felt it in my heart. It was like being taken back to my childhood. It was like that every single time one of the characters first appeared. Hearing Eeyores gloomy voice as he floats down the river made me almost giddy. In case you were wondering, Eeyore is my favorite.

Summer Nights at the Hollywood Bowl

Summer Nights at the Hollywood Bowl

Visiting the Hollywood Bowl during the Summer concert series is one of those things you kind of have to experience. Last year was my first visit to the Hollywood Bowl and I could not wait to come back this Summer.

If you are a Harry Potter fan, this is something you need to check out next Summer. Hearing Patrick Doyle’s unforgettable score live-to-picture is... magical.

The wait is over -- #Incredibles2 is in theaters now!

The long wait is over, the #Incredibles2 is now in theaters. For years and years every now and then my Dad would ask me, "When are they coming out with another Incredibles?" Well, now! It's out and what I loved about it, is it picked up right where the first one ended. Like no time at all has passed. Except 14 years ago when the first one came out, I was a teenager. This past weekend I took my daughters to see Incredibles 2 at an early screening at the El Capitan Theater.

Say Hello to Pretty lil Things!

Say Hello to Pretty lil Things!

Last year while attending #WeAllGrowFamilia I stopped by this beautiful little area filled with flowers and decor and that's where I met Celia Morales Milla of Pretty lil Things, a floral design and event styling company. Over the next few months I saw Pretty Lil Things at almost every event that I was invited to and attending, most recently having a small pop-up flower crown area at the LA Times Festival of Books at USC. So when a friend of mine asked if I knew anyone who could make a floral crown for his daughters college graduation, I knew just who to reach out to.
