The Skirball Cultural Center, have you been?
Wait, before you answer that I think I should make one thing clear. The Skirball is NOT the Getty Museum. I repeat, the Skirball is not the Getty Museum.
I really don’t know why I didn’t write this post sooner!
A few months ago I finally had the chance to take Hayden somewhere she has been dying to go, The Beverly Hills Hotel. A weird request for a 6-year-old, right? Well, if you know Hayden, it really wasn’t. She is a budding movie buff and ever since watching Troop Beverly Hills she just had to go. So one day when we found ourselves in the area with nothing to do, I figured what better time to visit. Thanks to the help of my BFF, who just so happens to work there, I was able to make one of Hayden’s little dreams come true! Read more
Currently sitting here downing a cup of coffee just trying to stay awake because this morning we were up bright and early. When I say “bright and early” I am talking like 6:30 am, which for this momma, may as well have been 4 am. I am not an early riser so for me to get up at that time it has to be for something special. Which was exactly the case because today we went to check out the Space Shuttle Endeavour at the California Science Center! Read more
In just a few hours I am going to be in Palm Desert, sipping, lounging, and of course, chasing my little ones in and out of the pool. As of today, I am in total VACATION MODE. Never mind work, cleaning, and packing, which I am dreading the most! What is it about packing when you have children that make it exciting, daunting and terrifying all at the same time?? Forget one specific outfit or toy and the vacation is “ruined” according to your six-year-old. I swear she is such a drama queen. Luckily I have a way of combatting such forgetfulness that this momma is so prone too, lists! Yes, before packing I will sit, with a pad of paper and pen in hand, and make a complete list of everything that I need to bring. Shirts, shoes, toothbrush, diapers, wipes, bathing suits, toys…you get the idea. Anyone else write these little vacation packing lists, or is it just me?
Annnnd… I’m back! I feel like it has been forever since my last post. I’ve been in a bit of a slump lately, as far as creativity, but I am going to power through it! So in hopes of getting these creative juices flowing, I’m bringing #ThrowbackThursday from the ‘gram to my blog by revisiting our trip to the Greystone Mansion! Read more
