Providence: A City to See

Providence: A City of Architecture and History

The only thing I ever knew about Rhode Island is that it was the smallest state on it was somewhere in a pile of east coast states that I could never figure out. Now which one is New York, that’s it, no that’s Pennsylvania. Where is Delaware again? I suck at geography. Really bad. So bad […]

Socal Coast

A Road Trip Down the SoCal Coast

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Cooper Tires and Roadtrippers.  Thanks to Cooper Tires and our Roadtrippers app we took a fabulous day trip down the SoCal coast. We went antique shopping, toured some beautiful and historic neighborhoods, grabbed lunch in Old Town and headed over to Coronado via a very scary bridge. Check […]

DC White House

DC with Kids 101

For the last two years we have gone to Washington DC with one of our kids. Last year with our then six year old and this year I went with my 16 year old for a mother/son trip. Both trips were unbelievable. The key? Not expecting your kids to do DC like an adult. They […]

Our visit to the Westin La Paloma Resort and Spa #LaPalomaHoliday

I can’t believe this was a year ago… A few weeks ago, I gave you a sneak peek of the Fire & Ice event taking place at the Westin La Paloma Resort and Spa during the Holiday season.   This past weekend we actually got to experience Fire & Ice for ourselves and loved every […]

San Diego: The Hotel Del Is Pure Delight

People have been telling me for years that I needed to plan a trip to the fabulous Hotel Del Coronado. Last month, after living in San Diego for twelve years, I finally took their advice. I was not disappointed. Just driving over the bridge is an adventure your kids won’t soon forget. I went with […]

Imagine always have an internet connection on road trips!

One of our favorite things to do as a family is to take roadtrips. In August, we flew to the East Coast to visit my sister-in-law and her family in Washington DC. After that we drove to the coast and up to Fenwick Island DE to meet up with my side of the family. Traveling […]


Halloween at Bellmont Park

I have lived in San Diego for almost ten years and have never been to Bellmont Park! I think there may be some law against that. Well, before I get my California Drivers license revoked I need to get down there and ride The Giant Dipper! Luckily it’s time for Boomont Park, and we have […]


The 2 Day Disney Cruise: Should You Board?

  My husband and I have considered taking Colt on a Disney cruise since he was a toddler. My husband was super excited at the idea. Me? Not so much. I enjoy a good day at Disney, but by the time the fireworks have gone dark I am ready to sprint to my car, Usaine […]


La Costa Resort and Spa: My Happy Place.

One of my most very favorite places to visit happens to be right in my backyard. Figuratively, not literally, unfortunately. When my husband and I need a day or two away, we book a room at La Costa Resort and Spa. When I need to spend some time with my girlfriends, we book a room. […]

Zion Cliffs

Conquering Zion National Park with a Jogging Stroller

My husband has this incredibly dorky hobby.  He throws a glider airplane into the air and controls it with a remote.  Yes I know. All I can do is shake my head.  I did not know about this hobby when I married him.   This rest of these details I’ll save for another post. Anyway, […]
