Happy Friday to you! Sharing my Newport Beach Vacation with you today, beach, sunshine, donuts, boardwalk bike rides and Disneyland
Lots to catch up on this week! I’m missing the beach already!
Pax was cracking us up, it took him 2 days before he would even touch the sand, but when he did he LOVED it! Cutest thing to watch him splash through the water and play
Boston Cream Donut by the ocean…..take me back!!
One of my favorite things all week was bike riding on the boardwalk for miles and miles. I miss waking up and biking along the beach listening to the waves crashing.
The waves must have been soothing to Pax, because this was his favorite napping spot all week
Cullen and I took a bike ride to the Balboa Candy Shop with Pax one morning. Another one of his favorite nap spots….his bike seat, lol!
We made it back to Disneyland! Halloween is one of our favorite times to visit the park. So fun and festive with Mickey shaped pumpkins and Halloween banners throughout. Space Mountain and Haunted Mansion are so much fun decorated for Halloween.
We decided to do the Minnie and Friends Character Breakfast first thing in the morning. Pax was beside himself. He loved Minnie Mouse so much. It was the cutest thing ever watching him kiss her on the nose.
Gotta love the treats from Disney! On the left is the chocolate dipped soft serve from Cars Land in California Adventure and on the right are my favorite Pomme Frites from Cafe Orleans.
One of my favorite treats at Disney! Peanut Butter Sandwich. Thick creamy chocolate on the outside with peanut butter and graham cracker on the inside. Heaven!
Oh for the love of churros. One of our favorite treats to get all….day….long! Haha!
Have a great weekend! See you Monday with a new recipe!
I’m in the beautiful Park City, UT area this weekend for a fun blogger event. Be sure to follow me on Instagram to see what I’m up to!

Happy Friday to you! Let’s chit chat, so much has been going on the last couple weeks!
First off it’s Fall Break here in AZ. The boys get a whole week off of school and that can only mean one thing…..we’re headed back to the beach. I’ve been looking forward to this vacation for months. Can’t wait for the salty air and sandy toes this week. We’re hitting up Disneyland too. We’ve had withdrawals since moving to AZ late last year, lol!
Can we just talk Tieks for a few minutes? I’m a little obsessed, lol!
I thought it would be totally appropriate to kick off Pumpkin season with matching Tieks in Tangerine. I mean, they match my pumpkin desserts right?
I’ve got lots of travels coming up and these will be perfect this Fall! I love AZ winters because I basically wear them all winter long. They are my winter boots Yippee!
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Tieks is teaming up with The American Cancer Society to raise awareness this month. I will be supporting with pink all month long….and then some. My grandmother is a breast cancer survivor of over 40 years. My heart goes out to all those have been affected.
I am so excited for my friends and their new cookbooks!! Run don’t walk and pick up each and every one of these!
Cake Pops Halloween by the sweetest Bakerella! Angie’s talent never ceases to amaze me. She makes the most adorable cake pops and her Halloween pops make you want to stop what you’re doing and get baking
You guys, I am still so obsessed with Fabletics. Not even kidding, this athletic line of clothes are some of the best fitting pieces I’ve ever owned. You’ve got to check it out. I signed up to be a VIP, which means you have the option to get new outfits each month. I just opt to “skip” those months and choose my own pieces. It’s so easy and the best prices.
If you’re looking for a perfect little summer black dress, I found one at Madewell. Looking forward to wearing lots! Can be dressed up or down. Love it!
If you need me, I’ll be dreaming of eating my favorite Disneyland goodies next week
Have a wonderful weekend!!
So grateful for my sister retreat Four Seasons Scottsdale AZ last weekend. Sunshine, good food and total relaxation.
Last weekend my sister and I had a stay cation at the beautiful Four Seasons Scottsdale AZ. When I want to get away, there is no other place I’d rather be. So many fun …
Last week we took off for the long Labor Day weekend with 2 of our 3 boys (Pax stayed home with grandma) to Orlando! The boys got to sit in the pilot chairs. We were off to a great start!
The boys were over the moon to see The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios. I could not get over how realistic everything looked! Literally was like walking through the movie. Love this dragon sitting on top of Gringotts Bank
I am thrilled to share our tips for creating meaningful moments on family vacation today! There’s nothing I love more than heading out of town with my crew of boys on a new adventure. We are counting down the days to our next family vacation to Loews Portofino Bay Hotel in a couple weeks with Mom It Forward. Stay tuned for our newest adventures!
Involve the kids in planning your family vacation. Show them pictures of where you are going, let them pick some of the activities and start a countdown calendar to get everyone excited!

Happy Friday to you!! Today, I am talking a little about my daily Make Up routine, since some of you have requested this post
Let’s talk about pre-make up first. I wish I could say that I use a really fancy face cleanser to wash my face but unfortunately I don’t. I wash my face in the shower….eeek I know, I am working on finding a great system. I’ve been curious about the Chanel cleansing products. It’s on my list to check out.
Right after I get out of the shower and I’ve dried my face, I use one drop of pure Argan Oil underneath my eyes. I am not kidding this stuff works wonders. It has been the best results I’ve ever actually witnessed work for reducing wrinkles under the eyes. It’s not very expensive either. I go up to the health store by my house and they carry it. Any pure argan oil will do the trick. Doesn’t have to be this exact brand. After I use the argan oil under my eyes, I use the Oil of Olay Regenerist cream as my main moisturizer. I’ve used this for YEARS. I’ve tried other expensive moisturizers and I always come back to this one. It’s the best drug store moisturizer around. Note: Some friends I know can get away with using argan oil all over their face as their moisturizer. I tried it and it just didn’t work for me. Too oily for my whole face. I prefer it just under my eyes and my decollate

Our summer break is officially over. I can’t even believe how fast it all went by. We are on day 3 of school and the boys are having a great new school year. Pax is sure missing his brothers being home. Are most of you still enjoying summer? I feel …

Happy Friday to you! A little chit chat today
Can’t believe this is our last official weekend of summer break around here. My boys start school next week, eeeek!
I can’t say enough about our staycation last weekend at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale AZ at Troon North. The kids start school in a few weeks so it was the perfect timing to squeeze in one last little getaway as a family.
