Winter Play Dates in San Diego with Gymboree 

One thing I’ve come to learn early on as a parent is the importance of play dates. And play dates in San Diego can be quite fun and exciting year round. From our great weather, to our amazing kid-friendly places all around town, San Diego is the place to be when you’re a kid.

Our favorite spot to be lately has been the San Diego Zoo. Not only is it a great place to explore, it’s also a fun and educational way to teach our kids about the many species of animals on this planet of ours.

Plus the fact that the zoo is right next to Balboa Park means we can enjoy a fun morning at the zoo then make our way to the museums (after snagging a bite to eat) in the afternoon! [Read more...]

DIY Hot Cocoa Snowman - a great gift idea for the kids to make

We recently shared our tips on how to host a Holiday Gift Making Party to get in the festive spirit and get ahead on a few homemade gifts. One of those gifts, this hot cocoa snowman, is such a fun way to spread holiday cheer and includes a homemade hot cocoa recipe you could make batches of to save for later.

The best part about these little jars is that the kids can easily get involved in filling and decorating the jars. And what kid doesn’t love working with mini marshmallows and mini chocolate chips? One for you, two for me, one for you… [Read more...]

Christmas Gift Making Party Ideas

Tis the season for gift making and gift giving. One of my favorite things to do is make homemade goodies to give out to family and friends. This year I’ve put together some fun ideas for a Christmas gift making party. Gather some friends around, put on some crock pot hot chocolate, and make some gifts for your friends to pass out to their loved ones.

One of my favorite snacks to bust out during the holidays – and a family tradition – are the Planters mixes. From their Brittle Nut Medley to their Winter Spiced Nuts, there’s a combination for everyone.

I still remember many Christmas Eve’s over at my grandmother’s house reaching for the Planters mix. Such fond memories! And now I’m sharing those memories with my friends. But in a slightly different way!  [Read more...]

I love creating a festive feel in the home and enjoy coming up with fun ideas to share the holidays with my family. I always look to the table centerpiece and mantel as my creative outlet to explore fun ideas during the change in seasons.  [Read more...]
