Well, we've only been on a few 'dates' since Kevin was born almost a year ago...but my FAVORITE restaurant is Las Brisas in Laguna Beach. Its got amazing views as it sits on a cliff overlooking the ocean... You can sit outdoors and have apps and drinks or by the indoor bar area for a more casual dining experience...or sit inside the restaurant. There are tons of windows so you can see the ocean from just about anywhere...and the food is DELICIOUS. It's a little pricey so we only go for big… Continue

Okay...maybe not my couch, but it is nice when Q goes to bed and we have a little time to snuggle on the couch and just relax. So nice. But we haven't really had a date night since Q was born. We are having our first date night tomorrow night! Yeah...wait. We have no clue what to do with ourselves! I might have to report back and let you know what we find.… Continue

Just a random happy thing. I auditioned for Who Wants to be a Millionaire when they had casting calls 3 weeks ago, and they called and asked me to be a contestant on the show! I'm flying to New York for a taping on Nov 8th! How crazy is that?
Kudos to my brave hubby who will stay to watch the kids while I head off on my wild adventure.
I'll let you know when to watch me on tv! ;)

I have known about this place for quite a long time, but I finally felt my son was old enough to appreciate the activities inside and with this gloomy weather it was one of the few options lately.
If you haven't been check it out online. It is a cute little museum and all the exhibits are hands-on (ie your kid can touch it all!) It is perfect for toddlers and little kids. There is even a preschool room for children under 5 only (so if there are field trips going on your little… Continue

So it's been 7 days since we brought home the newest addition to our family. Suprisingly, bringing home the second has been sooo much easier than it was with the first. I guess it's because you are somewhat already comfortable in your own skin as a mom so you already know what to do. Besides the c-section recovery, painful nursing issues and lack of sleep, things have been going way better than I expected.
By biggest concern, before leaving for the hospital, was how my… Continue

This is more of a favorite restaurant post because hubby and I have not been on a date without C in forever! So, we like to go at lunchtime, sit out on the patio and take C with us.
We LOVE Bluewater Grill (on the Lido in Newport not the one in The District)! We randomly found it when we first moved here and my husband googled "best oysters in Newport," but we've been there about once a month since and it never disappoints. It's a little family run restaurant on the marina… Continue

What's that? hahhaha! We used to do Date Night every Friday night, but since we had Reese, that has been, um well... not happening too consistantly. I actually don't have one specific thing we like to do. But I have a suggestion. What I do is buy any Groupon/Screamin Deal/Plum Deal that sounds like fun or something good to eat and just hold on to them. Then when we want to go out, we have a gift certificate to go out somewhere and we dont have to think too hard about what to do. Recently I… Continue

We have been trying to get my 18 month old daughter to eat meat for months now. She won't even look at it, let alone put it in her mouth. We tried cooking it every way, hiding it, saucing it....you name it. I made a roasted chicken tonight for dinner & knowing Odesa wouldn't touch it I made her a separate meal. She wouldn't touch her pasta either! As a joke my husband handed her a chicken leg and she gobbled it up! Ate every bite of meat on it & then requested more! Go figure....

When Seth and I want to go on a special date, we love to drive down to Newport Beach and rent a Duffy boat for a couple hours. http://www.duffyofnewportbeach.com/
Duffy boats have a picnic table in the middle, so I always bring some drinks and snacks.
Here's my special date night picnic pack list: (all from Costco except the olives! :)
- 1 bottle of Veuve Clicquot
- 2 bottles of water
- 1 La Brea…

This week I will be going to Flo Jo Park off Alicia and Olympiad in Mission Viejo at 11:30am for lunch and then playtime after. I have never been to this park before but drive by all the time. It looks great! Here is the link for the park:… Continue

Favorite date night/or afternoon, is the Beachcomber in Laguna Beach. It is right on the sand and the patio is completely surrounded by clear covering (if it's cold), so you can still view the ocean. During the winter they have wonderful warm toasty blankets to wrap around yourself.
Amazing food - the ahi tacos are to die for, and the apple pecan salad is the perfect late afternoon meal; with just the right amount of crunch! For some reason when it's cold, the cappachino… Continue

My husband and I just moved to "The OC" so we are still exploring all of the fun places there are to go. One of the first places we have visited and loved is Z'Tejas. Located on Bristol (part of South Coast Plaza), Z'Tejas has THE best margarites - my personal fav is the chambord-rita! They mix a little charmbord in a frozen margarita - TASTY! They have a great patio that you can cozy up to if you feel like enjoying the night air as well. The food is pretty good, too.
