A Few Rancho Las Palmas Pictures…

see more by

I had every intention of getting home from our delightful 3-day trip to Rancho Las Palmas yesterday and doing a new post for today but I was in such a vacation haze it just didn’t happen.  I ended up uploading my photos last night to try to hang on to the memories!  So, I decided to share a few of my faves.  I loved this one above the most.   The reflection of the trees looked so cool to me.

And, this one of Emma walking…

Last night Emma had the worst time going to bed. There were lots of tears saying, ” I want to go back to Rancho Las Palmas!!”  “I want to stay on vacation FOREVER!!”  “I want to live at Rancho Las Palmas!”

I think I know why.   This is just one pic of Splashtopia.  The Sandy Beach.  Seriously…

I know honey, mommy does too…

This was a pic from my iPhone relaxing on the patio with the hubby. The best.

And a family pic enjoying Happy Hour at bluEmber at the hotel….Emma cracks me up here…no one told her to pose like that.  Nothing says VACATION like a mai tai!  And, it was a yummy one…

I can’t wait to do my post on Rancho Las Palmas and Splashtopia.  Stay tuned…And another new post on the way tomorrow!

Wordless Wednesday – My MINI Minivan

We have a Mazda5 and sometimes when my little minivan is sandwiched in parking lots between big SUV’s it makes me giggle because, well, my minivan is just so MINI!   I shot this one in such a situation with my iPhone. I love my mini- minivan.  For a mom with small kids there is nothing better than SLIDING DOORS!

Zoom, zoom, zoom.

Wordless Wednesday – I Love OC

see more by

So I have been running a lot lately.  17  (GULP) days to go until my first 1/2 marathon. I do most my training in the Back Bay in Newport Beach.  When I was running yesterday the view almost took my breath away.  Or maybe it was the running. But anyhow, I had to stop and snap this pic on my iPhone.  It’s so gorgeous right now. Spring is in full bloom, wildflowers everywhere, and I love you can see Fashion Island in the background. I love OC.  I really do.

Love, love, love this product and now iGo has one to giveaway to you!  Make sure to enter, this charger rocks!

I received the iGo Charge Anywhere charger at the SV Moms Group event last month and I have used it daily ever since.  In fact, now I don’t know how I lived without it!

It happened to coincide with the purchase of my new iPhone. The thing has been life altering. I love it so much. It might become a problem.  Needless to say, I am charging quite a bit these days.

Cool features:

* You can charge plugged or unplugged.  When charging in the wall, the internal battery charges for use unplugged.
* Two USB ports so you can charge two devices at once
* Works with multiple devices…phones, iPod, cameras, navigation systems, MP3 players, etc. etc.
* No need for a new charger when you get a new device, it’s compatible with the latest models.

Just the other day I was going to go for a run and drop the girls at my parents.  I was bummed because my iPod was low on batteries when I got in the car.  Then I realized my iGo Charge Anywhere was IN THE CAR and I can charge it with the same tip I use for my iPhone!  Woo hoo!  Charged on the way to my folks and I was ready to rock by the time I hit my run.  Sooooo convenient!

My daughter loves some of the iPhone Apps like More Cupcakes!  It is so convenient because we can charge my phone if low on batteries while she is playing and not be confined to being near an outlet.

It is $49.99 with includes one free tip, which what you actually use to plug your device into it.  Additional tips for other devices are extra.

Hooray! It’s a Tiny Giveaway!
