Tetrapix Tetrahedron Puzzles

I
Tetrapix Tetrahedron Puzzles are really cool. They make six different themed puzzles and each puzzle makes four different images in the theme you pick. I love the Four Seasons theme! It’s been fun, advancing my puzzle like a seasonal clock. It’s become a nice little ritual that keeps my bookshelf up-to-date. And the pictures are a nice reminder to celebrate the specialness of each season. Would make a great gift, too. https://www.tetrapix.com

Get out and go for a hike!

We just did a hike around the light house in Point Loma, San Diego and hit up the trail to the tide pools.  Kids love being outdoors and exploring naturing and history!  Keep it local or plan a trip and be outdoors exploring!  It was especially fun to be out during El Nino!

Christmas at the Farm!

Frying Pan Farm, in northern VA, is worth checking out for the holiday season!  It is a full working farm through the year with lots of animals and equestrian activities, but during the holiday season it is a must see to help celebrate Chrsitmas!  It is a great place to see Santa and there are a lot of cool events to check out during the season!  The great thing is that it is all through Fairfaix County parks and Recs and everything is affordable!

Sea Glass at Crystal Cove

What a great FREE activity! If you are in the Orange County, CA, area every Wednesday you can visit historic Crystal Cove area and you and your children can make a sea glass necklace. The area itself is very cool, you are stepping back in time to the 1940's! And the beach itself is beautiful! My favorite part of visiting this area is going to the restaurant Beachcombers. It is right on the sand with great food and drinks! The Pims cup is amazing! It truly is a unique and wonderful southern CA experience! Check out Crystal Cove!





Give Thanks to the Furry Friends!

I am the leader of my daughter's Daisy troop and at our last meeting we made dog treats for the local animal shelter!  It is great to not forget about your own dog during this holiday season, and while you are making them something special, make an extra batch for the animal shelter.  In this recipe I used Sunflower Seed Butter instead of peanut butter since there are so many people with nut allergies out there!  I have to say that my dog was super excited about trying these and I am sure the pups in the shelter were too!  This is a great activity for kids!

Take a Break, Mom!

Greetings from the weekend!

It is so important as a mom to find time to hang out with girlfriends and take a time out!  It doesn't have to always involve wine or other drinking, but just time to relax and breathe!  Suggestion at least once a month hang out with a friend!  It is so important to have adult conversation and be silly, have fun!  A great little day trip or spot to vacation is the Hotel Del Coronado.  A great place to do a girls weekend, or just get a quick drink and enjoy the beach!  There is plenty of opportunity to enjoy the atmosphere without staying at the resort.  The bottom line is get some girl time in!  I did a quick couple hour stop at the Hotel Del and enjoyed a wonderful ladies weekend recharging my brain and my soul with family and friends!  San Diego is a great place for that!  I had the wonderful pleasure of enjoying a weekend in San Diego with some incredible ladies!  And just remember, like anything else in life, if you are going to do it, do it up right!
