Our Christmas Card.
This was my favorite photo from our Thanksgiving trip to the Grand Canyon. We went to the snow in January but that did not prepare us for the cold that is the Arizona desert! 2015 was the year we took our first road trip. The...

When Amazing Grass wanted me to be part of the recent Moms Meet campaign I was thrilled since I've purchased some of their products before. But what I didn't know is that they have improved it!  

I have to be honest, I don't eat enough greens and I know I need to up the ante if I want to be truly healthy. Lucky for me, there's a quick fix for this problem.... drink your greens.

Click over to find out which one was my favorite and how you can claim your free sample pack too!

Last week we sent home a note with the anticipated beginning of the school year donation request. But we involved the students to make the request more meaningful.

I saw Christine today for a hair color and trim. I was describing what I wanted for my hair color and Christine grabbed a color book for me to show her what I was after. When I said the choices were overwhelming she narrowed it down for me based on my skin tone and she suggested the one she thought would look the best. She was right! Hair coloring is very tricky and I think Christine has a knack for helping moms who maybe don't give a lot of thought to their hair be able to be bold and make a change. This was my first time at Plaza Hair Salon and I enjoyed the modern and chic establishment very much!

For our Girls Day Out we had a very cordial driver. He was willing to help take pictures so we could record our event. Very clean and spacious party bus which makes it so much easier to get up and move around. When we had a misunderstanding about the order of drop off for each person to their home, the driver was happy to correct the situation which I appreciated very much!

If you want to choose healthier Mexican food, this is a good option! Their chips and guacamole are the best! I love that they use mostly organic products and hope more big chains will follow suit. Their prices have gone up while portions have gone down over the last decade and I don't know if that is just a trend across restaurant establishments everywhere but I would be okay with one or the other, but not BOTH. My kids love the taco kit - to be honest the reason we don't eat here more frequently is that the taco kit doesn't really fill them up all the way and they are ages 9, 7 and 5 years old - so we have to get the chips and guacamole or plan to get an extra quesadilla. I've had great experience with the staff being friendly and accommodating and extremely patient as we move our 3 kids through the line to choose their side items. I generally get the chicken burrito and love their salsa. I have found you just can't go wrong here with the menu.

Most of these fast style chain Mexican shops are not worth what they charge but that is not the case with Lolitas Taco Shop! We love taking the kids here because we know they can't always sit in a traditional restaurant when we feel like some good Mexican food. Here you can expect quick service and ample parking so it makes for a great lunch hot spot. My kids favorite are the rolled tacos and my husband loves the carne asada burrito. I haven't found an item I don't like thus far and because of that and the price is just right, I give this 5 stars.

We have a tradition of going here once a year for mom and daughter date night! It has been great to just sit, chat and paint with her. We love pieces to choose from, we always have a hard time deciding what to paint. Tonight we are bringing friends with us and look forward to exposing them to this wonderful establishment.

If you haven't tried their Lifeguard burrito you have to get it! My husband has been coming here for years and while we love the food, the portion size has gotten smaller or the price has gone up - but that may just be everywhere. This was the "go to" place for the office when my husband worked in Sorrento Valley. We have made the drive to the beach for an impromptu sunset a couple of times and every time we do we want to stop here - but there have been occasions we pass by because you have to really look for parking. We've had the California burrito and love it, but our favorite is hands down the Lifeguard burrito.

My main reason for the 4 stars versus 5 stars is that this is a cash only place and parking is not abundant in this area of town. We've been going here for years but would go even more if we didn't have to first run to an ATM! We love the low key environment and if you like New York thin crust pizza, this is a must try. I recommend the spinach and ricotta. Our kids are not huge fans but that's because they're used to commercial pizza - we need to train them up haha! My advice is to get a whole pie - you save a great deal that way - but sometimes your dining companion just doesn't like the same thing so it is awesome that they have pizza by the slice for those occasions and to be honest it isn't too expensive.
