A Fondue Date Night from OCSaverTime

see more by

My mother-in-law is from Switzerland so I am lucky enough to have experienced her homemade traditional swiss cheese fondue on many occasions. It is simply one of the best things in the entire universe.

I love fondue because a FUN-due (sorry) dinner is about more than the cuisine, it is about the experience. I love the leisurely pace. When you are having fondue, there is no rushing, just good conversation and time to indulge in each delicious bite-sized morsel.

If you have never had fondue before, then this deal today on OCSaverTime.com for dinner at Simply Fondue is one that you cannot pass up for your next date night! Only $45 for a 4-course fondue experience at Simply Fondue in Mission Viejo (a $106 value!)

OCSaverTime.com is a new daily deal site focused on Orange County deals.

The 4-course dinner includes:

1.Choice of  Salad: After checking out the menu the spinach and strawberry sounded particularly appetizing to me. Nice to go with a lighter salad for this course.

2. Choice of Cheese Fondue:  Nothing better in this world that dipping a piece of french bread into a pot of melted cheese. Don’t believe me? You just have to try it yourself. You have to go with the Traditional Swiss with the Gruyere and Emmenthaler cheeses a la my mother-in-law Doris. YUMMMM….

3. Choice of Seven Entree Meats & Seafood:  Yes, you read that right, you get a choice of seven different surf and turf options.

4. Choice of Chocolate Fondue: Of course it wouldn’t be a fondue extravaganza without ending with a chocolate fondue. They even have a Thin Mint variety. Are you kidding me? My mouth is WATERING already!

That alone is quite a deal for $45, but this voucher ALSO includes two glasses of wine or two specialty martinis to add a little fun to the fun-due!

I am so snatching up this deal to take my hubby on our next date night. Better believe we will be toasting his mother for instilling in us a love and appreciation for fondue!

Laguna Parent Participation Preschool Open House

see more by

Hello mamas! If you have little ones approaching preschool age and are looking for the perfect school for your family, I wanted to share some information on a local preschool in Mission Viejo called the Laguna Parent Participation Preschool.  It is called a “parent participation school” or sometimes referred to as a “cooperative or co-op preschool” and is a  really great option for lots of families {and they have a few slots open for next year!}  If you are interested in this program,  they are having a Summer Open House next week where you can go meet the teachers, see the classroom and learn more about their organization. Here is a little more about their program and more details on the Open House…

Unique Preschool Finds a New Home in Mission Viejo

The Laguna Parent Participation Preschool is excited to find a new home this Fall in Mission Viejo.  This “hidden gem of a school” has remained a fixture in South Orange County since 1972 and has brought joy and love to hundreds of children and their families.

LPPP is a place where parents and children learn together.   As a non-profit preschool, the school is run by a board of elected parents.  A paid, professional teacher plans the curriculum and  engages the children in a multitude of age-appropriate activities.  Each day there are several “working parents” that assist the teachers in the classroom.

At LPPP we recognize that the work of children is play.

music painting cooking hands-on science experiments language arts crafts
imaginary play gardening puppetry early reading math skills
motor skill development multicultural experiences

This niche preschool appeals to families who are looking for a preschool where they can be involved in the early childhood education of their children.  The families at LPPP value “childhood” and the learning that is accomplished through play and imagination.  The typical family has one stay-at-home parent who is able to work in the classroom a couple of days a month and participate in the management of the preschool.

If you would like to learn more about the Laguna Parent Participation Preschool and it’s tradition of excellence please contact our membership chairperson at uscwatts@hotmail.com or call  949-235-0660.  Interested families are also invited to attend our informational Summer Park Days.  Visit our website at www.lagunapreschool.com.

Mission Montessori Summer Programs

see more by

I have yet to meet a parent who has a child in a Montessori program who has not absolutely RAVED about it.   Just last weekend at a baby shower I was talking to a mom and she went on and on about how much she loved their Montessori school.

If you are considering a Montessori program for your little one in OC, Mission Montessori in Mission Viejo is now enrolling for Summer and Fall.   Their Summer program is a great way to ease your little one into the school setting. Offering lots of fun activities from water play to puppet shows, the Summer program still includes lots of fun learning and is taught by credentialed teachers.

Click HERE to see all the fun things lined up for this Summer!

Mission Montessori accepts children from 3 months old to 6 years.   Their Summer programs are geared towards kids ages 2 – 6 years.  They have two summer sessions, one starting on July 6th and the other on August 2nd. You can choose a 2, 3 or 5 day program, either half day (830am – 1230pm) or full day (830am – 300pm). They also offer extended care options.

To register, contact Mission Montessori to set up a tour of the facility so you can visit and see how awesome it is firsthand!


You can also visit them on Facebook or follow @MMontessori on Twitter.   As a blogger, I have to say I am super impressed with their social media savvy! 🙂
