Girls’ Night Out

vincenzo's bingo night santa clarita

I did something new this month (well, last month since this is posting in August).  I have really been brainstorming methods to grow my Scentsy Business and came upon an opportunity for a local event at our pizza place - Vincenzo's.  They've been really great about working with our community for different types of fundraising events.  So last month I heard about a Bingo night where small businesses (primarily all in attendance were Direct Sales) could host a round of bingo and get to network and potentially obtain new customers. I don't know when I've ever played bingo. I have friends out … [Read more...]

Things I Never Thought I’d Worry About

things i never thought i'd worry about

This is a sponsored post. Thank you for taking the time to read and sharing in some of my worries! I remember being newly married, folding laundry on our bed, and joking about how this life I was in felt more like play than reality.  I shared with some friends and I think at that point, I had no idea the worries that would fill my mind as time passed and I got older (or maybe wiser?). I always knew Jon and I would have kids.  But after trying to have our first for what seemed like forever, I then worried that maybe we wouldn't have any. When we had our first - Aubrey - I wondered how I'd … [Read more...]

Much Needed R&R In Solvang, CA

Solvang ca sunset

Thank you Kia for loaning me this Sorento to cruise around Solvang with! During a group date night in December, the girls all decided we needed a trip away to Solvang, CA for some laughs, good food, and some time away from our kids.  (We love you kids, but we also enjoy eating a hot meal!).  We flipped through our phones, found a weekend, and saved the date.  Counting down the time was exciting and eventually we were ready for our trip!  How do I prepare for a trip? Here, let me share.... The next day we packed up the Kia Sorento SXL and ventured out.  The ladies were pretty impressed … [Read more...]

Seasonal Menu at Bonefish Grill

seasonal menu at bonefish grill valencia ca

I received a gift certificate to dine and share my experience with the new seasonal menu options at Bonefish Grill in Valencia.  Opinions are mine (and my friend's, since she came with!) Shrimp Ceviche Chilled bay scallops, marinated shrimp, fish, fresh pineapple, coconut, cilantro and guacamole, seasoned crisps for dipping. Since I'm practically ready to give birth at almost any minute of any day, I'm trying to get all the things I've been meaning to do, done.   One of the items on the agenda was going out with my friend Maria to do my post-baby-booze-shopping trip to stock up on some … [Read more...]

It’s Time for Dodger Baseball with ScoreBig!

Dodger Baseball | Tickets with ScoreBig

Growing up, I remember all the Dodger games I attended.  I think it was my Grandpa that had 4 seats for every home game and the family would take turns going.  Each trip involved me screaming out the names of the players (Daryl Strawberry is the only one I remember yelling at the top of my lungs) and a Carnation Chocolate Malt with the wooden spoon.  You know the type, right? I wonder if they had that at every MLB field across the US. We never arrived for the start of the game.  We never stayed for the end of the game.  But we always enjoyed the moments there and I loved the 7th Inning … [Read more...]

5 Tips for the Best Winery Experience

5 tips for the best winery experience

Last month, I was invited up to Zaca Mesa Winery in Los Olivos to experience all that this vineyard had to offer.  The property covers over 750 acres.  On our drive up, we passed many of the vines that grow all the spectacular types of grapes that are crafted into the many varieties we tried that day.  It had been a long time since I headed up on a family day trip with my mom and sis, and even longer that included my aunt and cousin.  In fact, the last time we had done anything like this as a group was during a trip to Jon and my wedding venue back in 2008 and had cake tastings to pick out our … [Read more...]
