Happy Friday to you! A little chit chat today I feel like it’s been a while!
If you follow me on Instagram, you might already know that I started a new Disney Instagram called @Disneyhungry. As some of you know, when we lived in California, we reviewed nearly every restaurant in Disneyland, so I am now sharing those photos on my new page. No worries, @pickypalate is still my main page, just added a new one for any of you who visit Disneyland with your families!
I don’t know how I got so lucky, but I was invited to the Disney Social Media Mom’s Conference May 7-10th held at DisneyWorld. This time I get to take my 2 older boys, my girlfriend from California and her son. We are so excited. More fun DisneyWorld photos to come
LOVING these Linen-Blend Boyfriend Tees from Old Navy! I literally bought one in almost every color. Great fitting t-shirt great for summer! THIS is also a great dress for summer. I got the pink stripe.
Front then back sides of cards
So excited about my new business cards I ordered from Minted.com. They have the cutest cards. If you are in need of any I highly recommend them!
Anyone else LOVING Alex and Ani bracelets? My friend Shelly wore them in Orlando in February and have been hooked ever since. Apparently they are just making their way to the West Coast! I am sooo going to collect these Disney ones on my upcoming trips! Yay!!
Make sure you are following me on Instagram for sneak peeks at upcoming recipes and @Disneyhungry if you are Disneyland fans! Also make sure you are signed up to receive Picky Palate delivered right to your email!
Have a great weekend! See you Monday with a new recipe!
Happy Friday! A little chit chat today about my trip to Rocky Point Mexico with the family for Spring Break
A month or so ago, some of our neighbors and friends invited us to Rocky Point for Spring Break. I have to say, I have grown up in AZ most of my life and have never been to Mexico. It’s only a 4 hour drive too! After some discussing back and forth, we decided, why not, lets try it out this year.
I’m pretty sure, you’ll see by the photos, we had the best time. I was definitely skeptical and a little nervous being out of the country with the kids, but are so glad we went. We’ll be making this a tradition every year.
We stayed at Las Palomas Beach and Golf Resort. If you check out VRBO, you can search through and find condos to choose from. The view from the rooms is amazing!
We had so much fun beach time with the kids and friends. The beach is much different that the CA beaches I’m used to. There are no waves that roll in, however they have banana boat rides and jet ski’s for rent. I could not get enough of the vendors that walk the beach and sell their goods. My favorite was the jewelry vendors selling gorgeous silver and turquoise pieces. Too much fun!
One of our favorite daily treats was the mango on a stick. The boys got theirs plain, but they come with fresh lime and chile seasoning. Literally to die for! I’m so making these at home. We had some of the best homemade tamales on the beach too. The best part is you don’t have to go anywhere. The vendors walk the beach most of the day.
I’ve got to practice my knife skills, lol! This baby is so good.
My neighbors and friends We tried some amazing Mexican restaurants every night. Pollo Lucas was our favorite….with Thrify Ice Cream every night. So much fun cruising the town with these ladies and their families.
Hands down my favorite treat of the trip were these homemade churros from Choya or Cholla Mall (I saw it spelled both ways). It was less than 5 minutes from where we were staying. Crispy yet custardy in the centers with cinnamon and sugar. Wish I could get these everyday….well it’s probably best I’ll only have access to them once a year, lol!
Such a fun adventure with my little family. My boys will always remember this vacation. We can’t wait to go back next year.
Our tips for visiting Rocky Point Mexico with your family:
It’s helpful to go with a group of people who have been before. I can’t say we’d ever go with just our family alone.
Don’t forget to plan for passports. If you are driving, the kids 16 and under will need original copies of birth certificates.
Bring your own bottled water, we didn’t drink their water just to be safe.
Bring lots of cash in small bills. It was a bit of a pain to get money from the bank there.
Bring plenty of snacks from home for your room and beach.
Dental floss in your bag for all of the mangoes you’ll eat
Obvious things like keep your car doors locked while you’re out and don’t leave valuables inside.
I’m sure I’ll add to this list as I think of more tips!
…not a sponsored post, just wanted to share our first experience in Rocky Point
Have a great weekend!
See you Monday with a new recipe!

Happy Friday to you! Another Chit Chat Edition today
Flour was flying in the kitchen earlier this week with all of the cookies I was making! Had a fun cookie exchange with some of the ladies in my church Tuesday night.
I used my friend Amanda’s fun decorating ideas from her post HERE.
I know Thanksgiving is coming up sooooo soon. I’ve got to remind you, my all-time favorite Stuffing recipe is HERE. I will be make a double batch for my family. It is AMAZING Definitely going to try to get as much cooking and baking that I can on Wednesday night. I could use a good workout Thursday morning before all of the eating festivities begin, lol! We literally have a Thanksgiving lunch with my family then dinner with my husband’s family. Hope I can pace myself!
