SoCal Family Week of Fun!

SoCal Family Week of Fun!

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

Hello Kitty Has a New Home at Universal Studios Hollywood

Hello Kitty Has a New Home at Universal Studios Hollywood

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.

Queen Mary's Dark Harbor- Get the Ship Scared Out of You!

Okay, if you're not following my InstaStories over on Instagram, you are totally and completely missing out on all of my fun daily updates. If you were following my InstaStories, then you would know just how completely excited and nervous I was to attend the opening night of the Queen Mary's Dark Harbor. I was invited and said yes, and then was completely freaked out all the way up until walking through the welcome gate. This was my first time doing any fright night type of event in almost 20 years and I have to say... I had so much fun!

2nd Annual Pink Walk at Ontario Mills

2nd Annual Pink Walk at Ontario Mills

Have you noticed the abundance of the color Pink during the month of October? October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so get ready to see pink and pink ribbons and "Save the Tata's" everywhere you turn. Breast Cancer awareness is important. It's a big deal, in fact, it's a huge deal. Today while attending the Ontario Mills 2nd Annual Pink Walk, I heard some very real statistics. Did you know that 1 in 8 women in the US will get Breast Cancer? 1 in 8 is an astounding number and as much as the color Pink is synonymous with Breast Cancer, so is the name Susan G. Komen.

Walk, Talk and Act Like A Pirate! #DisneyPirates on Blu-Ray/DVD Oct. 3rd!

This year I took celebrating National Talk Like a Pirate Day a little further than even I knew possible. I didn’t just spend this day walking around saying “Argh!” like I normally do. No, this year I was dressed by pirates to look like a pirate, hung out with pirates, took lessons in being a pirate and even hung out with the Black Pearl. This was all made possible of course by Disney and Allied Contigo to celebrate the upcoming release of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales- out on Blu-Ray/DVD October 3rd!

Pumpkin Patch Fun at Irvine Park Railroad

Pumpkin Patch Fun at Irvine Park Railroad

One thing that East Los Angeles lacks is Pumpkin Patches! I didn't even know that Pumpkin Patches were a thing until I ventured out of my little bubble and saw this giant carnival disguised as a pumpkin patch.  I thought everyone bought their pumpkins at the market while doing their weekly grocery shopping. But now I love visiting pumpkin patches as a Fall family must do activity. Irvine Park Railroad is one of the best, most fun Pumpkin Patches you will find in Southern California.
