great america's winterfest

Christmas spirit is real.  As soon as the music starts playing and lights go up there’s just this indescribable feeling that takes over.  I always look for holiday activities to do with the family and recently attended Winterfest at California’s Great America in the Bay Area.  If you aren’t familiar, Great America is a theme park that is transformed into a magical winter wonderland.  Oh my goodness, you guys!  I can’t get over how exceptionally done every single thing was.

The wintery scene features one of the Bay Area’s tallest Christmas trees adorned with thousands of twinkling lights accompanied by giant toy soldiers greeting guests. Winterfest features 7 million LED lights, creating such a vibrant experience that it is visible from the International Space Station.  

Pictures really do not do it justice.

25 Mom and Son Dates Ideas

Thank you to Hickory Farms for sponsoring this post!


Ever since Damian was little, the importance of mommy and son dates were really important to us.  Sometimes we would have them one-on-one and after Paxton I’d bring both on occasion.  I have to admit it was Damian’s idea.  He didn’t want Pax to feel left out.  How sweet is that?!

While I am with my kids all the time, I think creating special moments in the form of dates makes them more meaningful.  Today, I am sharing with you guys some of our favorite date ideas.

Girlmore Girls: A Year In The Life

This post in partnership with Netflix and my #StreamTeam membership.  All opinions are honest and my own.  Duh, Netflix is the best.


Have you watched Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life yet?!  I can not get enough.  I’ve watched the whole thing twice and I will not stop anytime soon.  It literally brings all the feels.  

All. The. Feels.  

I don’t want to ruin anything for anyone but those last four words!  I can’t get over it.  I’m over here hoping all of us Gilmore Girl (without the the) diehards can get one more four-part-event.


I even waited an hour in line just to get a coffee at one of the pop-ups for Luke’s Diner.  Yes, an hour.  I told you I was a fan.  The ending just had me wanting more.  Tell me you did too!  I refuse to believe it’s over.

I actually haven’t streamed anything else on Netflix since it came out.  

So tell me…What are you streaming?!  Give me more addictions.
