Chit Chat

Chit Chat Seventh Edition

Chit Chat day!

I’m heading to a food conference this weekend with dozens and dozens of my blogging friends. It’s the Big Traveling Potluck. You can follow my Instagram to see what we’ll be eating up to πŸ™‚

Be sure to head over to my friends at Lunchpails and Lipstick. They are featuring some healthy snacks and shared one of my recipes.

Here’s a little glimpse of what we’ve been up to the last week or so. Happy Friday!


The last couple weekends, we’ve been so lucky with amazing weather in Southern California. You better believe we hit up the beach and take advantage of the beautiful sunshine with the kids! My 7 year old sure knows how to live it up at the beach. I just love watching him play.

We finally re-newed our season Disneyland passes! Oh happy day, it had been far too long since we’ve been. Stay tuned for more posts about “Where to Eat at Disneyland.” On the left is an amazing Peanut Butter Chocolate Sundae from Ghiradelli Chocolate Shop. Soooo good. I had a glimpse of the future with my 10 year old son. I realized that he still holds my hand walking around Disneyland. I almost teared up thinking in a few years he’ll be a teenager! Oh boy, the time sure flies by. Love this boy so much.


Too Faced Chocolate Bronzer

I can’t believe I hadn’t heard of this “Chocolate Bronzer” by Too Faced before! It literally smells like the best chocolate ever. You have toΒ  have it. My face smells so good, lol!


A couple weeks ago we went to AZ for the boys Spring Break. Spending time with my mom, sister and grandma make me so happy!! Granna made her famous baked beans that I feature in my cookbook. She is the sweetest.

Oh Pax. What would I do without your happy chubby sweetness? I love this picture, lol!



I hadn’t made rice krispie treats in ages. I’ve decided that to make up for lost time I am making them everyday. Lol! I wish πŸ™‚

Have a wonderful weekend, see you Monday for a new recipe!

    Loved reading your ‘chit chat’, Jenny! Pax is just a bundle of cuteness and how sweet that your 10-yr old still holds your hand and Disneyland. <3 Have fun at the conference!

    I so feel your emotions with your 10-year-old holding your hand. My 9-year-old is the sweetest boy, too. I hate that it will end soon, so I try to soak it up. It’s like that Verizon ad on TV that shows the red-headed boy growing up and his mom continually tousling his hair. It gets me every time!!

    The rice krispie treats look delicious, I totally think it’s ok to make them every single day! πŸ™‚
