#MissingLink In Theaters April 12th!

#MissingLink In Theaters April 12th!

Last weekend me and my girls were lucky enough to screen #MissingLink, a new film from LAIKA studios starring the voice talents of Hugh Jackman, Zoe Saldana and Zach Galifianakis. We are HUGE LAIKA fans, with Coraline being a favorite of ours, so we were really excited to see what LAIKA had in store for us. #MissingLink did not disappoint, we laughed our way through most of the film, which also had a ton of heart and of course a little bit of a life lesson thrown in for good measure. I’ll be very honest, a particular theme that stands out to me now is when there is a strong female character being represented and #MissingLink has that with Adelina, voiced by the phenomenal Zoe Saldana.

Spring Fling at the #LAZoo Now through April 28th!

What better way to celebrate the first weekend of Spring, than at the LA Zoo’s opening weekend for their Spring Fling festivities. It was so nice to be outside for a change, since for the first time in a really long time, we had a cold and rainy winter. As I looked around at all of the faces in the crowd at the LA Zoo, you can tell that everyone there was just so excited to be out of the house.

Just Another National Day #NationalSingleParentDay

Just Another National Day #NationalSingleParentDay

Whenever I hear stories of single moms raising incredible people and doing amazing jobs, I don’t feel like I’m part of that club. I guess as a Mom, you never feel like you’re doing enough or doing things right. But I sure as hell am trying my best and my girls are doing just fine. They’re not perfect, but they’re fine and I guess I am too. #NationalSingleParentsDay

#WellnessWednesday Mental Edition

#WellnessWednesday Mental Edition

Today I got emotional and I talked about it on my InstaStories. I talk pretty openly over there, on the daily, and the reason I feel so comfortable with that is because most of my viewers are women, around my age, mothers, people who I relate to. Yesterday I received messages asking if I was okay, because I wasn’t my usual perky self. I also received a nice video message from a friend telling me she has days like that too and we’re all gonna be okay. Just those words of encouragement and support, and knowing that someone was listening and not just tapping through my videos, was helpful.

Feelin' Good and Ready for Summer!

Feelin' Good and Ready for Summer!

Last year, as I was going through major life changes, I started losing weight. I wasn’t trying. I wasn’t depressed and not eating, in fact, usually I’m an emotional eater and turn to food for comfort. I started losing, just because I was feeling better about myself. So then, the Summer came around and the person I was spending most of my time with started to talk about the Keto diet. I had done Atkins when I was younger, I knew I could go along with Keto, and it was so much easier to do with a partner.

I'm Back B*tches!

I'm Back B*tches!

So, it’s been a while since I’ve typed more than just a few words at a time. You may have noticed that this little blog of mine has been pretty absent for the last year. You see, I was going through a literal life 360 as I separated from my husband, moved out of the only house my girls have ever known and started searching for a more “normal” job as a single mother. It doesn’t sound fun, but to be perfectly honest, the last year of my life has been the most fun I’ve ever had- and me and my girls are just fine.

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

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.
