A Date Night at the Theatre

It can be easy to get in a rut when it comes to date night.  We can easily find ourselves going to the same restaurant or seeing yet another movie, because that’s what we’ve always done and it doesn’t take much thought or planning.

But we challenge you to change that this weekend.  We are lucky enough to have the Civic Arts Plaza in Thousand Oaks — one of the largest performing arts centers between Los Angeles and San Francisco. There are more than 400 performances annually, including Broadway musicals, dance companies, popular entertainers, concerts, and more!

DIY Flower Mart Themed Baby Shower {DIY events}

As you may have seen on our Instagram feed, my sisters and I recently hosted a baby shower for our very own, Tanisha Kipling! She is having her baby girl #2 due October 7th — so soon! {PS if you haven’t already, check out her maternity photos here!}

We were fortunate enough to host the shower over a delicious brunch at Mediterraneo on the Westlake Village Inn property. We love their outdoor patios and of course, their food! It is the perfect setting for a shower, and any small gathering at that — plus, it’s conveniently located right next door to Stonehaus in case any guests want to continue …

The Perfect Date and a true Hidden Gem {local eats}

I know, I know. Topanga Canyon??? The valley? And the road is sooo windy. Well, hear me out. Inn of the Seventh Ray is one of the most quintessential restaurants I’ve been to in the area. It is the perfect venue for a special event, such as a Bridal or Baby Shower, and an idyllic spot for a romantic date. I’d say it’s definitely worth the trek.

My first visit to the Inn was for my sister-in-law’s Baby Sprinkle (it was her second baby, hence the sprinkle), and oh.my.gosh was I in heaven. It’s the cutest place in the most picturesque setting — tucked away in the …

A Day at the Races {Santa Anita Race Track}

It’s tough living the “suite” life … which is exactly what we did on Opening Day of Santa Anita Race Track’s 2016 season!

Aptly named #theGreatRacePlace, it is absolutely the place you want to visit this year.  After undergoing a ton of incredible renovations, it has a whole new look — and it definitely isn’t your Grandpa’s weekend haunt anymore.

We started the day off by entering through the Chandelier Room — a gorgeous hall (with — you guessed it — chandeliers) featuring live jazz music and food stations …

An Unexpected Local Getaway {Mandalay Bay}

You may or may not be counting down the days, but we’ve got a 3-day weekend coming up!  Needing a break, but not wanting to get too far out of town?  There is a surprising local getaway that doesn’t get nearly enough notice — Mandalay Bay.

…no, I’m not talking about the Mandalay Bay of Las Vegas fame.  And I know what else you’re thinking: Oxnard?? Really??

I was a doubter myself, until Brett and I checked in at The Mandalay Bay Embassy Suites for a quick weekend away.

A day date at the Ronald Reagan Library {local resources}

The holidays were a bit busy with all the family and festivities going on (which I loved, don’t get me wrong!), but once things were winding down I wanted to have a fun day date for Luke and I. Having grown up in the Conejo Valley, I’d only been to the Ronald Reagan Library once when I was pretty young so I thought that would be a fun date. I checked admission (only $16 for adults!) and made sure they had food & beverages (duh) – there’s a cafe and a pub with beer! Plus, it’s located in Conejo Valley area, the parking is free …
