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.Read More
I need them to know that the possibilities are endless for them and I am so grateful for the resources that are now available. Check out this brand new bilingual children’s book, Be Bold! Be Brave! by Naibe Reynoso, that will inspire the next generation of Latina leaders in science, medicine, politics, sports, journalism and art.Read More
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.Read More
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. #SponsoredRead More
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! #Incredibles2Read More
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.Read More
Just in time for Halloween, the perfect family friendly scary movie is here, in theaters now, and it’s so good. Last weekend I got to not only screen The House With A Clock In It’s Walls, but we also had a wonderful picnic lunch, met with director Eli Roth and checked out an escape room experience at the Americana on Brand. Yeah, it was as cool as it sounds.Read More
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.Read More
Ah you guys! The day is finally here! Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War is now officially on Digital, 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray! I remember the excitement back in March when I got to see the movie at the El Capitan Theater and thinking I could not wait to watch this at home, with some pizza, in my bed! Because there is literally no better way to watch a movie, than with pizza in your bed. Am I right?Read More
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.Read More

Okay, so is it just me or does it seem like food is a bigger deal nowadays? I mean food is so much prettier now and because we, now as a culture document what seems like every meal we eat. Meals are memorable now, they're a big deal. Especially if the meal tastes as good as it looks. Which is why, today I'm telling you about Grasslands Meat Market in Anaheim.Read More

I could not wait to go back, this time, I brought along my Mom and my two daughters. Yes, Maddalena, the restaurant at the San Antonio Winery is family friendly and the perfect spot for a Summer lunch or dinner.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
