You can’t go wrong with a Montage gift card.

My husband is a little challenged in the gift giving arena.  I wrote about him here.  Which is funny to me because women seem so simple to buy for! Am I right ladies?

To me, there are a handful of things that most women would love on any special occasion. And one of these things is some sort of gift card to be used for a little guilt-free pampering. To me, that gesture says, “you deserve it mama!

So if you are in the need for a gift for special someone in your life this holiday season, consider one from Montage Resorts, which really is the ULTIMATE gift card to receive!

There are several unique things about their gift cards, allow me to highlight for you…

1. They have made it so simple to do online. Click HERE to go to the gift card page with all the info on ordering.

2. Your recipient can use the card however they’d like to… for a spa or salon service, fine dining for a special meal, or to be put towards a stay for a weekend getaway.

3. The recipient can use the card at any Montage property! Whether they are looking for an urban escape in the heart of Beverly Hills or a seaside retreat in beautiful Laguna Beach – they get to choose!

4. You can register and protect your card online so that you never have to worry about a misplaced card.  Although if I was lucky enough to receive one of these gift cards I might sleep with it under my pillow.

So ladies, if you have a hubby like mine, you might want to accidentally forward this post as a little *hint.*  Or leave it up on your computer so when he checks his fantasy football scores he can get Montage on the brain. Subliminal hints never hurt.

Happy holidays friends! I hope Santa has one of these little cards under the tree for you this year…

On my endless list of things I am thankful for, one of the first things is always HEALTH. I am so grateful for my kids health, my health, my family’s health. I feel beyond blessed to have good health in our family.

But there are families this Thanksgiving day and every day whose children are sick. Did you know that each year cancer kills more children and adolescents than any other disease?  Did you know that you can make a difference?

Please consider joining my team Tiny Oranges at the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation Cinco de Mayo Run/Walk on May 1st, 2011 in Irvine to help raise money to help make a difference in a child’s life. The money WE raise will fund research that explores causes, treatments and cures for pediatric cancer.

It’s easy!  Click here to go to the Tiny Oranges team page. Click the “Join Our Team” at the top and the sign up will walk you through the rest.  You can choose any event…half marathon, 10K run, 5K run/walk or 1K kids’ fun run and sign up the entire family.

We have 20 people on our team thus far and have already raised $653 and our team ranks 2nd in the line up! My goal for now is 50 people, so please consider joining us!!  It will be a ton of fun, and the moment you click to sign up, you will immediately get a warm fuzzy feeling about doing something really powerful for an amazing organization.

And, may I have a drum roll please…

It was just announced this week that the Montage Laguna Beach has so generously offered to sponsor our team and will be providing, are you ready for this, a complimentary one-night weeknight stay in an oceanfront room* at their GORGEOUS property to the individual on the Tiny Oranges team who raises the most money for pediatric cancer research!   A value of $700.  I am so excited about this and feel so THANKFUL for their support of our team.  Thank you! Thank you!

I fell in love with Running Divas at the Long Beach Marathon expo when I saw their hip running apparel and fun slogans that celebrate running.  I have been talking with the owner and he has offered to do a custom designed tee or tank for our Tiny Oranges team at HALF price. Could be as cheap as $11!  Again, so grateful for their support.  Stay tuned for more information on our cute team tank or tee!   Click over and check out the cute slogans.

So, lots to be thankful for this year.  And I would like sincerely thank YOU for reading my blog. You inspire me and keep me going every day!  I wish you and yours a very happy holiday!  I am also still working on my place cards & table topics for my dinner tomorrow.  If you want to help me out with any new questions – please click here to join the conversation over at the SoCal Family Connection!   XO Jen

Montage Yoga Classes for Locals

This is one of those finds that had me exclaim, “are you serious??” I didn’t know the Montage Laguna Beach offered something like this for OC locals!  And when I have those moments I get excited because I am able to SHARE these super finds with you!

Every Tuesday and Sunday the Montage Laguna Beach offers oceanfront yoga classes that include {get this —>} ACCESS to the spa facility for only $40.

This means you can enjoy complimentary access to the Spa Montage facilities from 5:00 – 9:00 pm on the day of your class, including the oceanfront pool, Jacuzzi, movement studio, sauna and steam room.

Tuesday’s class is Yoga Flow from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. and Sunday’s class is Yoga Renewal from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. Both classes are for levels 1-2.

I have never been to the spa at the Montage in Laguna Beach but a friend recently told me it is quite simply unparalleled.  I think I am due for a visit.

So ladies, close your eyes and picture this…it’s a Sunday afternoon after a busy weekend with the kids.  You pack your spa bag and yoga clothes and leave your husband with the kids for some dedicated “daddy time” as you have  arranged to meet some girlfriends at the Spa at 5pm.  Once you arrive you might want a light bite to eat, or just enjoy time sitting and chatting. Perhaps you might want to spend some time in the Jacquzzi or steam before your class. Then from 6:30 -8pm you enjoy an invigorating yoga class and afterwards a leisurely shower with no one tugging on your leg.  At 9pm you depart home for a good night’s sleep ready to start the week refreshed and “centered.”

All I can say is…SIGN ME UP!

For more information, please call Spa Montage at 949.715.6010.

{Special valid Tuesdays and Sundays, September 1 – December 31, 2010. Cost is $40 per person.
Additional restrictions may apply.}
