Oh man oh man, I am still recovering from our week of fun. Why didn't anyone warn me that filling our week with so much fun would be so exhausting? Haha. As tiring as it was, it was completely worth it. We spent the week touring our beloved Southern California. We went from Santa Monica, to Hollywood, to Long Beach, all the way down to Carlsbad... and back! Luckily for us we were traveling in both style and luxury in the 2018 Buick Enclave Avenir.Read More

It's like a party and EVERYONE is invited!Read More
If you follow me over on Instagram, then you would know that my 2018 word of the year is CONFIDENCE. It is the one area, the one part of me, of who I am, that has always been missing, that has never been there. Now, raising two daughters, in the world that we live in, suddenly lacking confidence didn't seem okay. It seemed like I was doing myself (and my daughters) an injustice. So, I'm working on it.Read More
Guess what time of year it is?! It's Boysenberry Festival time at Knott's Berry Farm! To be fair, every single time I visit Knott's Berry Farm I say that it's my favorite time of year, but we have so much fun throughout the whole year. Every single season is memorable!

Every single time that I visit Universal Studios Hollywood, there is something new and awesome to see. Today was no different and was a pretty exciting day for me because I got to tour the brand new Animation Studio Store that just opened in Universal Studios. It is no secret that I am a HUGE Hello Kitty fan. I've loved Hello Kitty for as long as I can remember. This store takes Hello Kitty to a whole new level of cuteness, maybe even a level of cuteness that we didn't know existed until now. Did I pique your interest? Check out some of the stuff you can look forward to.Read More
Whenever we are really super excited about a movie, the first thing my girls say as we walk out of the theater is, "Mom when can we watch it at home?!" Coco was no exception, my girls could not wait for a Coco movie night. Well we've had Coco on digital for a couple of weeks now, but there is just something fun about getting the DVD too.
Thank you to Allied Contigo for the fun crafts and gifts. How cute is this COCO frame? I had so much fun painting it. Yes, I did it. I used it as an excuse to get some quiet craft time in for myself. Although, I think I'll go pick one up for my girls now.
Frames play a key role in Coco. For Día de Muertos frames are used to display photos of loved ones that have passed and are placed on ofrendas.
You can find these cute DIY frames at Toys-R-Us for $12.99. The frame set includes: 1 Wooden Frame, Sticker Sheet, Foam Sticker Sheet, 2 Markers, 6 paints and a paintbrush.
Oh man, I have to say I haven't done something so challenging when it comes to crafting in a really long time. When I opened up this package my mouth dropped, the paint by number that I was thinking of was a lot less intense. But I was up for the challenge. And I have to say I was pretty proud of myself when it was done.
Isn't it so pretty?! I can't wait to hang it up on the wall. My girls kinda loved it too and they were really proud of me.

I had the best time celebrating the upcoming digital release of Disney PIXAR COCO at the historic Placita Olvera or Olvera St. We were not only treated to a delicious dinner (and margaritas) at El Paseo Inn, but we were lucky enough to be in the company of Anthony Gonzales, the voice of Miguel accompanied by the Mariachi Divas and folklorico dancers.Read More

Recently, in an effort to both get to know myself while being more transparent with my followers, I posed the question, ASK ME ANYTHING, on InstaStories and Snapchat. If you’re not following me on either platform, you’re missing out, because this is where I document my day to day stuff and confessions of how I’m really feeling. I asked you to go ahead and ask me anything and promised to answer in both forms, here on my blog and on InstaStories. So.. without further ado.. Here are the answers to ASK ME ANYTHING. (Insert monkey covering his eyes emoji here)Read More

If you were to have told me a month or two ago that I would be a fan of Star Wars, I would have laughed and probably smiled while flipping you the bird, because, that's just who I am. And up until last week, I had never seen one Star Wars movie. Like, ever. At all. #TheLastJediRead More
