A little over a week ago, I had the opportunity to head out with the girls and sample the new menu at Mimi’s Cafe that will be available as of October 7th, 2013.

Mimi's Cafe

It was a wonderful evening with the girls, many of whom are fellow bloggers you may already be following.  Always nice to catch up and hang with friends who understand the “Don’t Touch The Food Till I’ve Snapped The Perfect Photo”.

Dave And Busters at The Outlets At Orange

It is so much fun to spend a night out with the girls, but when it is a bunch of fellow bloggers, it is even more crazy.  If you ever notice a group of girls crowding around tables and tables of food, with cameras in hand – NOT EATING, that would be us!  Sad to say, our family is already forewarned that they cannot touch their food until it has been properly photographed. 

Last week I had the opportunity to have a “Girls Night Out” with my blogger buddies at Dave and Busters.  It was a night full of cocktails, food, photos and fun!

We Went WaffleS Cafe Crazy in Las Vegas

Recently my mom moved to Las Vegas from here in Southern California.  I thought she was a bit crazy for moving away from this beautiful California weather, and her absolutely adorable grandkids, but since we travel to Vegas a couple of times of the year, maybe it won’t be so bad.   The nice thing, my mom and stepdad are discovering some really great places to visit in Las Vegas, especially fun places to take the grandkids, like Waffles Cafe.

Why We’ll Return To Spin! Neapolitan Pizza And Giveaway | @spinpizza

Disclaimer:  
We were invited to a special “Blogger” party at Spin Neapolitan Pizza to taste test their award winning pizzas.  All the opinions shared are my own.

 

 In my family, pizza seems to be the go to meal, especially with the Princess.  If we let her, she’d have a cheese pizza every day.

Apparently, we’ve been missing out!  Spin! Neapolitan Pizza just opened up a few miles from our house – at the Anaheim Promenade in Orange on May 20th.
