sheraton-carlsbad-pool

The last couple of years, my husband and I have been lucky enough to do #Dateweek where we shipped our boys off to the grandparents and went out every night for a week.

Date Night at Bacari PDR

I had a romantic dinner date with my husband at Bacari PDR recently, and let me tell you, it was about time. It’s easy to get lost in the day-to-day busy-ness of life and routine food and forget about dating the man you fell in love with, not to mention the food you fell in love over.

LA-Live-at-Night

I am not always the most thoughtful daughter. I don’t call my mom enough and now she texts me instead of calling because I don’t always answer my phone. But I try to make it up to her in other ways. Like last week when I got an email asking if I wanted to go see Comedian Bill Maher at the Nokia Theater downtown and try out the Verizon 4G ... Read More »

5 Tips for Starting a Playgroup

Playgroup (by Betsy Potash)

This is a guest by Betsy Potash Everyone needs a community, especially new parents. People to commiserate with when you can’t scrape together more than two hours of sleep at a time.

I have been in a relationship for more years than I care to share since I am obviously still only in my mid-twenties, and that would make me SEEM much older than I actually am (wink wink).
