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

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.

Mom/Son Date Night at Monsters University Advance Screening | @MonstersU #ad


Last week, I had the opportunity to surprise my handsome boy, as we were invited to see an advanced screening of Monsters University (with two free tickets) the night before he graduated from Kindergarten.  

So excited about the anticipation of date night, we talked about it in detail the day before…what time we were going to leave (have to figure in traffic down to Newport Beach), what we were going to do about dinner, what Daddy and sister were going to do while we were gone, etc.  I think I was more excited than he was!

Last night I had a girls night out with my mother-in-law.  We had the opportunity to see Billy Elliot at Segerstrom Center For The Arts.When you arrive at the theater, there is lots of fun to be had.  Attendees have the option to get dressed up, practice their leaps or ballet positions while snapping a photo in front of the billboard and ballet bar.

Night Out To See Warhorse

Tonight, I am super excited to attend the Tony Award® winning show WAR HORSE at  Segerstrom Center for the Arts.  I just saw the movie over the weekend and LOVED it!  If you haven’t seen it, it is a great rental  – try Netflix or Showtime.  Follow me on twitter tonight as I tweet about the show!  @ToddlerTrails


I’m really looking forward to learning more about the magnificent “Joey” puppet created by Handspring Puppet Company, see behind-the-scenes footage featuring Adrian Kohler and Basil Jones – puppet designers for WAR HORSE, try my hand at operating a puppet created in the style of “Young Joey” and learn from an American WWI soldier about what life might have been like during “The War to End all Wars.”  They will even have WWI artifacts and uniforms on display.
