Taylor Swift At Staples Center

Taylor Swift At Staples Center was amazing!
My sister in law and I got to hang out for a super cool night of drinks and amazing musical performances by Taylor and her team!

It all started when my other sister in law and I daughter swapped. Her youngest for my oldest for a cruise to Ensenada. I jumped at the opportunity to have my baby girl experience such a fun time but the days they were gone fell on the same Friday that the Taylor Swift concert she was going to was on.... Only she didn't know she was going!

We decided to let her go on the cruise and I would take her tickets to Taylor Swift! I KNOW RIGHT! LUCKY ME! Grecia, my sister in law, and I were so excited to get to LA Live and have a few drinks. That we did and fun we had. 
+Coca-Cola handing out the best signature bottles of Coke!
We took a shot, had a beer and walked into the Staples Center to see the best concert ever!

Top 5 favorite moments of the show
* her...she is just phenomenal and beautiful on stage and in the show itself
* how humble her voice is when she speaks from her heart to her audience
* the crowd... interactive and happy to be there the crowd is what completely makes the show or breaks it with their involvement
* surprise guests are always fun and she loves to surprise her guests ...
* the flawless transition from speaking to song to story she's telling..the flawless flow of the show was so enjoyable and exciting that you can't believe it's over when it is.

Although I am so happy my daughter was able to go on a cruise and I was able to use her ticket.... TAYLOR SWIFT  is one performance and performer I really can not wait to take her to.
Our seats were up there but every seat in the house is a good one. We had a blast - really was the best over all performance I have seen in a long time. Sorry my baby bug had to miss it to go on a cruise, oh my, but I can not wait to take her to +Taylor Swift and enjoy a second show myself!
Thank you TAYLOR SWIFT for showing young and old that being cool means being who YOU are - and that kindness is amazing!

Keep Being an Inspiration to all girl. I would be fine with it if my daughter said she wanted to be just like you!

Apple Cider Muffins with a Fun Fall Twist

Apple Cider Muffins with some fun toppings always makes me feel like Fall is near!

School is starting and none of us are ready for it. I decided to bring a bit of fun into the house with some yummy muffins. These are not just any muffins. These special muffins remind us all of Fall and the traditions we all share. 

Apple cider donuts are something we have been craving from Snowline orchard seasonally for over 45 years as a family. My parents would go apple picking before us and continued the tradition with us. Now that my brother and I have families of our own we do the same and love it. 

I use a super simple recipe for the mix itself. You can find it in detail here, but this is the gist of it...
  • 2 cups sweet apple cider
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened, plus more for pan
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon table salt
 Bake at 375 for about 15 to 17 mins tops and you are set!

If you want to do what I did and add some extra yummy goodness on top, pop open the oven about 3 mins before they muffins are done, top them with your favorite delish toppings and finish baking. 

Today I added chocolate chips, marshmallow and some tasted coconut shavings on top of some of the muffins to create a variety of sweet treats to taste.

Fall is so fun for our family. A few of our favorite things to do are bake, eat and play. Some of our must do's are +IrvineParkRailroad Pumpkin Patch where we get fresh pumpkins to make pie and soup with and of course this year we are excited to head to +Knott's Berry Farm to check out Scary Farm and of course for the littles Spooky Farm! 

Going back to school wont ruin all our fun in the sun, we will just be having that fun with leaves changing color and fall festivities to keep us on the go!

Hope everyone has a great time back to school.

Savannah Chop House Date Night Bliss

Chris is Back at Savannah Chop House!

It's been a while... a while since I had amazing food made for me, a while since my husband and I dressed up for a date night out, a while since I have been to dinner at Savannah Chop House. (Last time was a friends Holiday party in 2001)

When I was invited to dinner by my amazing friends over at +GigaSavvy I was so happy but when I heard it was at the new revamped and re-menu'd Savannah Chop House, I was so eager to get tasting!

There is a new menu and Chef Chris is back bringing it all to us fresh and fierce. He creates drinks that pair with each dish he dreams up. This Chef is creative and loves food. He loves food so much that you can tell his inspiration comes from his heart.

We enjoyed an amazing 3 plus course meal. We totally missed the appetizers but I was waiting for the best man to come home to me and take me on my date! I heard the Smoked Salmon on Toasted Point and the Bruschetta were just wonderful. The Grilled Prosciutto Wrapped shrimp were to die for, especially since the monsters from Knott's Scary Farm were there working up everyone's appetite. 

Chef Tzorin introduced us to the menu and what we would be served to eat and drink. 

Our first taste was extremely good. Who knew a Tempura Stuffed Zucchini would be my new favorite appetizer! Seriously could have had like 20. But why would I have done that to myself when there was the freshest salad coming up next. 
My hubs and I shared both of the salads. The Cesar was amazingly fresh and the Watermelon Beet salad with candied pecans and goat cheese was light and addicting. My husband is not a fan of goat cheese and I had to remind him we were sharing..gosh!


Our mouths were watering as we watched our waiter put down the main dish in front of us. Oh my goodness there sat a beautiful Filet Medallion, on top of it was a huge shrimp prawn. (Probably the one I saw swimming fresh in the tank as we walked in) Paired with Brussels Sprouts and creamy mashed potatoes, dinner was just delightful. 

After a few drinks, one fruity and one with mint, I was ready for the warm coffee liquor that was coming up next with dessert. I could not decide what I wanted to taste first. Warm Flourless Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Bean ICe Cream and berries... or...Strawberry Short Cake with fresh Strawberries and Whipped Cream!? Yes, you guessed it, we shared! Seriously so delish. 

We enjoyed everything we ate and the company we shared our time with. It was really nice to finally get to meet in person one of my blogging friends that I admire so much. Melissa Northway is not only a great writer but so great to chat with in person. Thanks for the meet and greet Savannah Chop House!

Chef Chris Tzorin and General Manager Philip Roberson were very welcoming and so excited about the new direction of their menu and style that it really did get us excited to be there. 

I want to say thanks to everyone involved in our evening last night! My husband and I can not wait to get back to Savannah... I need to taste those appetizers! Really! Great seeing my girls and meeting new friends. Perfect evening.
For more information, details on events that can be held at Savannah and how they are inspiring local community with cooking, please visit their website here. 

Hope to return very soon to experience more tastes that come out of the state of the art kitchen it is all thoughtfully cooked in.

Follow Savannah Chop House on Social Media and see what Chef Chris Tzorin is cooking up fresh daily!

Knott's Scary Farm announcements were made last night and with that we know this year will bring the fear out in anyone who attends.
Are you ready #ScaryFarm 2015
It's been a few years since the hubs and I attended Scary Farm for Scion nights, and this is the year I would not want to miss it.
Not taking him home to mama... Hold Me!
With 11 mazes, over 1000 monsters, 3 insane scare zones, 2 intense stage shows and 13 thrill rides, this years Scary Farm is going to be amazingly frightful!
11 Mazes 1000 Monsters 2 Shows

I got all the details of the past haunts, the new terrors and the secret skeleton rooms last night and here are the deets!

* Scary Farm will run from September 24th to October 31st and tickets are on sale now! Buy them on line here. IF you are a Knott's season pass holder you can purchase all 24 nights of the Haunt for $70 ($80 after September 20th) and you can add parking to the pass. If your season pass includes parking, you just scored parking for Scary Farm too. So cool!

* Stage Shows - Back by popular demand (and my all time favorite) Elvira in "Elvira's Asylum" and of course the can't miss stage show "The Hanging - Straight Out of Calico", where the guests can get involved by ranking the show.

* Scare Zones - Take a stroll through Carneviel, Fiesta de los Muertos or Ghost Town and keep an eye out for the newest edition to the screams.... "the Doll Maker", an old familiar face from Haunts past.. try and find him or do you dare?!

* Mazes - the favorites of the past haunts will all be there. 
     - Pinocchio Unstrung with a skeleton key room but be aware of the young lad looking for skin to become a real boy.
     - Black Magic where Houdini reeks havoc with a creepy skeleton key room.
     - Trick or Treat an all time favorite. Are you ready to ring the bell of this witches' house and enter her potion room or bewitched attic!? Be aware, she haunts everyone!
     - Forevermore be aware of the killer and enter this skeleton key room with caution.
     - Voo Doo Order of the Serpent where there is major conjuring of a demon goddess that protects her skeleton key room with might and frights.
     - the Tooth Fairy, yup she's coming and she's collecting all the teeth she can find in this jaw dropping terror including a skeleton key room. With a new ending, including a black out room where you FEEL your way out, this will be a major drill, I mean thrill! (oh my hold me now, seriously)
     -  Special Ops Infected Patient Zero is back and needs all of our help to capture their patient who has escaped and is infecting everyone all over again. This year you are in this real life zombie video game with a new gun, lots of headshots to hit and a health meter that will require you to be on your ball to get out of there in one piece... "on the battlefield- headshots ONLY" creator of Special Ops.
     - Gunslingers Grave, BloodMoon Rises, is the 1st western themed maze and it's going supernatural this year!
Oh my la Llorona is looking for her Ninos... do you have them!?

     - The Dead of Winter where you will enter an icy land that is reigned with a beyond evil Snow Queen. With bright lights and Dark darks this is one maze that with the skeleton key will have everyone shivering with fear.
     - My Bloody Clementine is the story of a sweet little girl that came to Calico and settled in the mines around 1885. Unfortunately the story tells that they were both gruesomely killed in the mine and have haunted it for years. Sad thing is, as the years pass, the haunts get worse and worse, scarier and scarier. With new tech, video and audio this years Calico Mine Ride brings an innocent ghost to a creepy demon. This year watch out, there are monsters, everywhere to haunt you!
     - Paranormal Inc. Here you will join the cast of TV's "Ghost Catchers" and investigate the haunts of the asylum at Hayden Hill. Brace yourself for this very interactive maze.
Paranormal Inc - Ghost Catchers

As if this was not enough to keep you in tears and fears, Scary Farm is never complete with out the Green Witch and her 7 deadly sins of scare!

Feel the fog and fear what lies with in it...

You can get even more details here, at Knott's Scary Farm and purchase tickets NOW!
Pricing starts at just $39.99.

Follow along with all the frights of this years haunt on social media - Scary Farm Facebook  Scary Farm Instagram and Scary Farm Twitter and follow me too as I bring you more details as we get closer to the frightful fun.

Knott's Scary Farm Announcement Tonight

Tonight there will be Knott's Scary Farm announcements about Scary Farm 2015!

We are lucky enough to be invited to preview the spooks and scares that are going to lurk around this Haunt season. Tonight I will go beyond the gates of Knott's Berry Farm to see where the creeps, cooks and freaky things come out during Scary Farm!
Whatever You're Imagining, It's Here Dentist

Stay close, hold on tight and try not to get lost in fog.... those are the things I know I used to tell myself for many many years. My love for the Scary Farm started when I was in 7th grade and first went in 1992. It was amazing, since then I have attended over 20 years of haunts including the +Scion nights that were held for years. 

Now that I have kids of my own I need to get them prepped for the screams and laughs in the night. I think they are old enough for Camp Spooky and I hear this year they would have Spooky Farm for family fun. 

Follow along tonight as I get all the details on all the scary facts that are headed our way for this years Knott's Scary Farm 2015!! Check me out on Instagram, Twitter, FB and live feed on Periscope. 

Happy almost haunt season...What are you most excited for?
I can not wait to see whats new with my girl Elvira!!

Funds raised support Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign ending childhood hunger in America

San Francisco, CA (August 18, 2015)—In America, 1 in 5 children struggle with hunger. This September, Boudin Bakery is proud to join restaurants nationwide to support No Kid Hungry® by raising funds in their restaurants. Throughout the month of September, Boudin will be offering guests a valuable coupon book – worth over $25 – for their donation of only $5.  This savings-packed coupon book will feature many of Boudin’s all-time favorite items, including a free loaf of The Original San Francisco Sourdough Bread™.  100 percent of all money raised will be donated to No Kid Hungry®. For more information on Boudin and this September’s event, visit

“We are excited to invite our guests to join us in supporting this wonderful initiative to provide healthy meals to children facing hunger,” said Gayle DeBrosse, Chief Brand Officer for Boudin Bakery. 

In 2014, nearly 11,000 restaurants raised $8.9 million through the Dine Out For No Kid Hungry. Funds raised support No Kid Hungry’s work to connect vulnerable children to effective nutrition programs like School Breakfast and Summer Meals, creating public-private partnerships that work together to identify and break down barriers to giving children access to meals, and teaching low-income families how to stretch their food budgets and cook healthy, affordable meals.
“Everyone—private citizens, businesses, policymakers, and nonprofits—has a role in helping end childhood hunger in America,” said Billy Shore, Founder and CEO of Share Our Strength®, the organization that runs the No Kid Hungry® campaign. “I encourage everyone to dine out often at participating restaurants wherever they are this September. Then visit to join this national movement to ensure that every child in America has access to the nutritious food they need, every day.”

About Boudin Bakery

Headquartered in San Francisco, Boudin Bakery is world-famous for The Original San Francisco Sourdough Bread™, which is baked with the same Mother Dough, or sourdough starter, used since 1849.  Born in the Gold Rush, Boudin is the oldest continuously operating business in San Francisco.  Because each loaf is made from a portion of the original sourdough starter, Boudin Sourdough is one of a kind.  With its delicious tangy flavor, golden crunchy crust, and soft chewy center – along with its famous aroma – it has been described as “a sensory experience in a simple loaf of bread.”  Boudin SF is a convenient, casual-dining restaurant with locations throughout California where guests can enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Boudin at the Wharf, located in the heart of San Francisco’s renowned waterfront, is Boudin’s flagship facility and home to Bistro Boudin, Boudin Museum & Bakery Tour, a demonstration bakery, Bakers Hall Marketplace and a Boudin CafĂ©.  Boudin bread can be purchased at the Wharf and all Boudin restaurants located throughout California.  Boudin also offers catering and operates a gift catalog business, which can be found online www.boudinbakery.comBoudin.

Back To School in Fashion with Don Roberto Jewelers

We are loving the Back to School jewelry trends that Don Roberto Jewelers is offering this year!

I love having a "mini me"! One of the best things about the relationship my daughter and I have is that she brings out the best in my girly side. She is a true mini fashionista and loves to accessorize. 

When I asked her to check out the Back to School jewelry trends that Don Roberto Jewelers has this year, she just about flipped out with excitement. I love looking at accessories with her. She tells me what outfit or what occasion would be goof for each piece she loves. 

Getting ready for Back to School we needed to get our fashion on from head to toe and that means accessories too!! For sure we would love to have everything out of their catalog, but we looked together for fun and chose some of our favorites and wanted to share!

Zoe's Accessory loves:

* This Cross Necklace - she says she would wear it always and with everything. She is in love with anything crosses. We love how its flushed into the chain. Zoe said - Mom it's so delicate, dainty but bold. Yes I agreed, this 14K gold sideways cross is beautiful. 

PC Don Roberto Jewelers 
* Hello Kitty Watch - My girl loves GOLD. I am more of a white gold girl but let me tell you that my mini me will take gold any day. She said this is perfect for her since she has loved Hello Kitty as long as she can remember .... yes she's only 8 but she is right. She has been in Hello Kitty and even dressed up as her for Halloween, has the skirts, dresses and shirts. So I told her this was a super nice HK watch and she said.. perfect it's good for me all the time and you for date nights with dad. ( thanks for letting me know your up with fashion more than I am kiddo!)
PC Don Roberto Jewelers 
* Cross Ring with Diamonds - Zoe says this is again, perfect for every day wear and for days she wants to remember my mama even more. She is in heaven and part of the reason I think my daughter loves pieces like this so much. Faith, Love and Beautiful crosses! It's modest yet it shouts powerful shine. I hope I can get this for her, shes in love...but I will have to get the necklace too. They go together so well and I too love them both!
PC Don Roberto Jewelers 

My Don Roberto Wish List: Not going to Lie... I would buy it all if I could!

* I am in absolute love with the Custom 14K Gold Name Plate - I can totally picture it saying @OnTheGoOC  It's so classy and would be just a simple reminder of my daily life on me. I am in LOVE! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! Must have for sure. 
PC Don Roberto Jewelers - Love it Lala!
* Sunglasses - I did not know that Don Roberto Jewelers had eyewear but I really want these! They are the Red Crown Collection Sunglasses. I think they would look great on my face and the shape of them is perfect for me. I have to get my face in these! hehe! I not only like these a lot, I totally need a new pair of good, cute sunglasses. 
PC Don Roberto Jewelers 
* Earrings - Since I have hyper sensitive ears, yes you guessed it so does Zoe, I look for earrings that say surgical steel, sensitive ears and sometimes it is just minutes before I am taking them off. This pair of 10k Gold Open Circle Flower Earrings are so beautiful. I almost get a Disney feeling when I see them. That makes me smile even more. They are gold so the are even better for my ears than the other types. I would love to pair these up with a pink dress my hubs gave me and date night them out! I am a picky earrings person. 
PC Don Roberto Jewelers 
I could go on and on about what else we like and want from Don Roberto Jewelry for Back to School Fashion... I would also like to offer my readers on behalf of Don Roberto Jewelers a discount code so that you too can take advantage of the beautiful pieces in their collection.

Ginnifer Goodwin (ABC’s “Once Upon a Time,” “Something Borrowed,” “Walk the Line”), the voice of the film’s rookie rabbit officer Judy Hopps, saluted fans alongside directors Byron Howard (“Tangled”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph”), and producer Clark Spencer (“Wreck-It Ralph”). Hilarious new scenes from the film were unveiled, plus a tease of the all-new original song, “Try Everything,” written by singer-songwriter Sia and songwriting duo Stargate, and performed by Shakira. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia” opens nationwide March 4, 2016.

We can not wait to see this movie!
