San Diego Restaurant Week - Oceanaire Seafood Room Review

San Diego Restaurant Week is one of our favorite weeks of the year. Not only do we get to step outside of our normal eateries and try something new but we also get to choose what we want to try based on our budget that week.

At the beginning of the year I attended a preview of San Diego Restaurant Week to enjoy bites from a few different places but this year I was asked to head out to a restaurant to enjoy their restaurant week menu a week early.

I was excited to try a new-to-me restaurant, The Oceanaire Seafood Room in Downtown San Diego, and had a fabulous date night with my husband while enjoying delicious food.  [Read more...]

Preserving My First Car For My Son with Gumout #WalmartAuto

My first car was my step-dad’s truck. I worked full time all summer and saved up the money to purchase it outright and was definitely excited to finally be behind the wheel of my own car.

And I still have that car. And it still runs. So I’ve been thinking about the future of my first car and I honestly think that we can keep it up and running until my son needs his first car.

Candy Apple Bars with M&M's - the perfect way to welcome fall and enjoy a delicious dessert

Oh my gosh you guys. I’m seriously melting right now and wondering where the heck fall is. Over 100 degrees today and the forecast does not look good over the next week. Oh how I yearn for the cool crisp 75 degree air of fall.

With pregnancy cravings that have me wanting apple pie, hearty stews, and other fall recipes I can’t help but give into temptation and bake up a delicious treat for the family even when it’s a sauna inside and outside of the house. Did I mention we have no a/c in the new house? Yeah…

After finding some delicious Candy Apple M&M’s on our most recent trip to Walmart I was inspired to make these delicious candy apple bars that are part apple pie, part candy apple.  [Read more...]

Sometimes growing up sucks. You can’t get away with nearly as much when you’re grown up. But there are a few perks to growing up. One being the fact that my palate has expanded and my love for good food has grown.

I’m always surprised at the random times I’m reminded that I’m a grown up now. Whether it’s my children asking me to download a game on their tablet and realizing that the game they want me to download is one I played with a pack of cards or on a board or when my favorite childhood movies are referred to as classics.

Each time I’m reminded that I’m grown up I’m not sure whether I should laugh or cry. But I guess that’s what growing up is all about. Here are 10 Ways to Know You’re Grown Up from my perspective:  [Read more...]
