If you follow my Insta Stories you might have watched videos of Marisol unraveling a surprise ball on Christmas Eve. It was hysterical to watch. There are 10 gifts wrapped up in this ball, including nail polish, bath salts, washi tape, a fuzzy key chain, hand cream, and other little bits and bobs that I knew she would love. I’m showing you how to make these fun surprise balls @makeandtakes - they are perfect for birthday’s, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, or just because you want to give someone you love a fun gift. #giftidea #surpriseball .

These are Asian meatball sandwiches. They are my new favorite thing. A couple of days ago I posted about the @macys #CulinaryCouncil event at the Mission Valley store (which is being held tomorrow). I decided to try a recipe by @chefbillkim for lunch today. AMAZING! Tip: pop it in the oven on 350F for a few minutes before eating. Hope I get to see you at the cooking demonstration tomorrow. #sponsored .

Once I start eating homemade salsa I can’t stop. Do you have that problem too? I made this quick tomato salsa from a recipe by @chefmichy and it’s perfect to go with our chicken and cheese quesadillas for dinner tonight. 🌶
Chef’s Michelle Bernstein and Bill Kim will be @macys in Mission Valley on Saturday sharing tips for making your favorite dishes healthier. This is a free event and you can find the details on my blog. I hope to see you there. #culinarycouncil #sponsored .

Obstacle courses, dodgeball, and jumping. Perfect indoor activity for a cold day. Are your kids back in school yet? We start back on Tuesday. #houseofboom #letsjump .

A boy and his bonfire. Is there anything better? Actually there is ... a big long stick and marshmallows. 🔥
Mike chopped down a dead tree in the front yard a while ago and we started re-decorating the living room today so had a big burn pile going. It was the perfect winter night for it. And not a cloud in the sky so the stars looked amazing. 🔥

Bucket list item. Check! I’ve been conquering a lot of fears lately. Life is too short to spend it being unhappy, with what-ifs, and I wish I’d tried that. Today’s mission was to try ice-skating for the first time. I spent a lot of time roller skating when I was a teenager, but I’d never tried ice skating. We had so much fun, especially Flynn who just took off. That kid has no fear. Have you been ice skating this winter? #iceskating #winterfun .

Winter fun with the little ones. Even I gave it a go ... once! But hey, that was big for me seeing as I hate anything that goes downhill fast. It was the spinning in a circle halfway down that almost did me in though. The kids loved it, but it was soooo cold. It’s been great experiencing winter though seeing as it’s still in the 70’s where we live in Cali. #winterfun #snowtubing .

There’s no time to be bored in a world as beautiful as this ~ quote

It was only 19 degrees out today so we headed underground and explored the caves where it was warm. Flynn was so excited to see stalagmites and stalactites up close. The formations were magnificent to see. If you haven’t had a chance to explore Mammoth Caves you need to add it to your travel list. We are planning a canoe trip through them this summer. #caves #mammothcaves .

Late last night I woke up to the sound of Mike and Flynn heading outside. Big, beautiful snowflakes were falling from the sky. We weren’t going to get a lot of snow overnight but enough to wake up to this winter wonderland this morning. Does it snow where you live? #snow #sunrise .

I’d timed it perfectly, a flight arriving in Kentucky at 11:59pm to ring in the new year with my little ones and the man of my dreams. Bad weather had other plans though and our flights had to be completely changed and Mike will be driving a long way in the early hours of the morning to collect us. Thank goodness the kids are amazing little travelers. Although my curled hair and makeup will go to waste now that I’m sure to sleep on our flight. Still loving these complimentary @maybelline goodies from @influenster though. Although a certain little girl is set on taking them from me when I’m not looking. Hope you all have a wonderful start to the new year. 💋xoxo #totaltemptation #contest #complimentary .

A little earlier today I shared an easy honeycomb and Brie appetizer. Make it the perfect pairing this New Year’s Eve by following it with honey glazed salmon and vegetable foil packets allowing guests to choose their vegetables and serving them with rice or couscous. Details for both are on the blog thanks to Don Victor® Orange Blossom Comb Honey Globe Jar. #DonVictorHoney #HappyHealthyHoney #AD

Remember when I attended the spa event recently? Well they served Brie with honeycomb as one of our treats while getting our spa treatments done. I decided it had to be my new thing. You can find honeycomb in the Don Victor® Orange Blossom Comb Honey Globe Jar in the Hispanic section of your Walmart store (you won’t find it with the regular honey). It’s perfect to serve with Brie and pita crackers if you are looking for a dish to serve this New Year’s Eve. #DonVictorHoney #HappyHealthyHoney #AD

There have been a lot of adjustments and firsts this year. But spending Christmas Day without my kids for the first time and completely alone was definitely the biggest one for me. Mike was hoping to be here but the grand baby needed surgery on Friday (he is fine and home again though thank goodness), and Jay had to work today. It’s times like this I really miss my family. We were able to FaceTime with everyone while the kids and I celebrated yesterday and it was a wonderful day. I resigned myself to cleaning all day today so I would stay busy and not be sad. I got as far as stain removing the couches and doing the kids’ laundry then gave myself a pep talk and decided to have a ‘me’ day instead, with black & white movies, a bubble bath, home facial and pedicure, and lots of leftovers from yesterday. But, I cannot wait for the kids to be home again tomorrow morning. I hope those of you who celebrate had a wonderful Christmas. #christmas .

Every year over the holidays the kids and I pick a night to go to Bainbridge Falls. It’s a neighborhood cul-de-sac where nearly every house is lit up for Christmas. Some of the houses are synced and if you drive through you can tune your car radio to listen to the Christmas music those of us can hear walking around. The kids and I drive through Starbucks for hot chocolate (or in Marisol’s case a hot version of her favorite cotton candy frappe) and then wander around looking at all of the beautiful houses. Do you have a neighborhood that does this? #christmas #christmaslights .

Our Christmas tradition. Marisol chooses the tree, and Flynn cuts it down, then we load it on top of the car so the twins’ can decorate it together when we get it home while we sip hot chocolate and watch Christmas movies. 🌲
The twins’ were starting to climb the walls after being home sick most of the week. Today they were feeling much better, unfortunately I’m not though, but DayQuil has become my BFF and got me through our little outing today. 🎄 #christmas #christmastree .

This has been my favorite spot all week. We are all sick with head colds, and the kids were home from school for 3 days. I finally ventured out yesterday once we had run out of food and of course my car wouldn’t start at the grocery store as I was leaving. A nice man from the Walmart auto center took pity on how pathetic I looked and sounded and got my car going again so I could make it home in time for Jay to go to work. Of course the kids were not happy that I then ran out of time to pick up their favorite takeout (orange chicken from Panda Express). Thank goodness for the kindness of strangers though. So I curled back up on the couch in front of the fire once I was home to watch Christmas movies for the rest of the afternoon and evening. Flynn’s favorite movie is Santa Buddies. Do your kids have favorite movies to watch over the holidays? ⛄️
.
Thank you @ikeausa for the surprise package. I absolutely love my new throw rug, cushions, mugs, and tray. They are perfect for using right here in my favorite spot.
