Vegan Venice Beach Date Night at Plant Food + Wine

Right before Christmas, I got called up to LA to do a blogger event at Sony Studios. We already had plans for both kids to go over to the grandparents house and my husband and I were planning on doing some holiday shopping after he finished work. He decided to come along and do his conference calls from Venice Beach. When he picked me back up he had late lunch/early dinner plans for us at Plant Food + Wine before we had to jet back down to San Diego. As a former Angelino, I wouldn't have even thought to go out to go "all the way out" to Venice because I lived and worked centrally, in Hollywood but I'm so glad he took the wheel on this one, we were in for a treat!

Star Shower Window Wonderland movies and Slide Show Outdoor Holiday Decorating

Two Christmas décor/lighting products sent to us from Star Shower updated our Christmas decorations so easily this year. We love decorating for the holidays but I really was not that into a lot of the old decorations and updating the display seemed like a lot of work when we didn't really have the time (or money$$!!!). This makes such an easy and cost effective display that is totally low-maintenance.

This week we got to review complimentary personalized book from Penwizard. The book is called The Snowman and the Snowdog and anyone who knows us knows we love animals so I thought this would be a good book for our little girl to have in her collection.

Planning ahead: The bottom line as the kids grow up

It seems many moons away, but the day that the kids up and leave home is one that's closer than what you might realize. It's something that sneaks up on us and hits us in the face and while there is obvious emotional impact to consider, today let's take a look at some of the more practical aspects.

Vampirina Spin Go Round Game Review

Wonder Forge, the award winning game company sent us another game for little kids. It is their Spin Go Round style game with a Disney Jr. Vampirina theme. This game is described as a twist on bingo where each player gets a spinner and you pass them to the next player when someone lands on a Spin Go Round. You match your cards to color, pattern, shape or character and the first to get 3 or 4 in a row wins. Since it was for ages 3 and up and it was only supposed to last 15 minutes, I figured my nearly 2.75 year old could try it...

Banned Words Game Review

Wonder Forge sent us this thought provoking game called Banned Words. It is for ages 12 and up and it is a team game for 4 or more players. Each team has 90 seconds to predict words that they think the opposing team will use for their teammates to guess the target words. One player on each side gives clues so their teammates can guess the target words. If they say the "banned words" the other team gets a point.
