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!

Spring is Here! {local lifestyle}

We don’t know about you, but we are loving this beautiful spring weather!!  And we’re especially lovin’ that everything is so green — wildflowers are blooming, thanks to the little bit of rain we’ve had these past couple of months (and hopefully we get more!).

To celebrate the first day of spring, we headed outdoors {OK, in our backyard} and played with Reese’s sand and water table. She had a BLAST splashing around and was soaked within a few minutes.  But that didn’t stop her from splashing around some more.
