  • My Favorite Mommy & Me Swimsuits – MooRoom Swim

    MooRoo Mommy & Me Swimwear These swimsuits are so amazing, where do I even start! When I first started following MooRoo swim on instagram, I was in love with the fact that this was a Mommy owned company, a female owned company and also a local so cal mama.  Designed by a mama with the postpartum body in mind. Removable chest pads, tummy control, and buttery soft fabric. It feels like this swim suit was tailor made for me. Which is something that I never say about a one piece – I have a long torso, and an A cup, so typically one pieces are a no go for me.…

  • Chasing Playgrounds

    The Strand This March, in light of the St. Patricks day theme, I though it was a fun time to explore San Diego playgrounds. I have been wanting to share our favorites, and also find some new ones for the girls. So come along as we explore San Diego and find the best playgrounds and parks! We have been with Fit4Mom since Carli was a baby, so we frequent the strand and the pier during the week as well as with Dad and grandparents on the weekends! This is also one of our favorite spots to bring out of town family and friends! The girls love the swings by the…

  • Rainbow Toddler Activities

    I am a Child Development student currently, working towards a Preschool Teacher Certification. I do have a Bachelors Degree in Psychology, and had plans to get my Masters in School Counseling, but my desire to stay home with my kids while they are little changed my course for now, and I have enjoyed taking online courses while I am a stay at home mom of two littles.  This was based on a final project I had for a course. We had to chose a theme and base a curriculum off of it. We created a web relating the central theme to various learning areas. I chose rainbows. So with these…

  • Pizza My Heart Valentines Party

    Love You To P I Z Z A S Carli’s Cucina I couldn’t stop thinking about this idea once I dreamed it up! There are so many toy kitchen accessories and toy food for the girls play kitchen that I am always seeing and wanting to buy! I wonder who has more fun with this toy kitchen most of the time – them or me! I was noticing how much we have that would fit this little pretend play set up perfectly! Carli’s Cucina came to me when I was looking up inspiration for traditional, authentic, cute, lovely little Italian pizzerias. The toy tomatos, olive oil, pizza, flour! It was…

  • Danielle’s 30th in Palm Springs!

    I have been planning both of my younger sisters weddings for years now, even when they weren’t with a boyfriend, we were always planning! We had always talked about doing a bachelorette in Palm Springs or Vegas. Last year, Danielle was in a new relationship, and wanted to have a big bash for her 3oth birthday. She said, “Why wait for a bachelorette?! Lets go to Palm Springs now!” I was already planning a surprise party for her so I took the reins and decided to throw her a big party with all of her friends.  It took me a while to write this post – in this post –…
