Southern California fun in the sun Orange County style.

Living in Southern California means that we have many perks. One of them is that it is sunny most of the time. Beach weather is usually all the time. We live only 30 minutes away from the Corona Del Mar and Newport Beach area, so we visit often. On this day we visited the Salt Creek Beach.

Expo West 2014 starts today!

I am so excited about attending the "Natural Products Expo West 2014" in Anaheim. It is the most incredible place to be this weekend. The Expo hosts hundreds of people who will share, talk and form relationships all in the name of healthy foods. Just drive by Katella and Harbor tomorrow to see vendors passing out samples of their most prized items. The streets all around the  Anaheim   Convention   Center  will be covered with people walking to and from the Expo West. You will see signs and cars driving around with food labels that are organic and healthy for you. This will be my third year attending. I can't wait to see what new things I will share with you.  Follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to get immediate pictures of the event. #ExpoWest

Mr. Peabody & Sherman movie review.

The movie Mr. Peabody & Sherman starts this Friday March 7th! YEAH!!!  This is a movie that everyone will enjoy from Grandparents to Grandchildren. The character was first introduced to us in the 1950's as one of Rocky and Bullwinkle's friends on their animated show.  I grew-up watching the re-runs of the cartoons and I absolute love this cute, smart Beagle.
