Lovely Lazy Sunday

 

Today me and Lila had a girls morning and then we met up with Hubs and his friends for a yummy treat of hot cocoa ice cream. A lovely lazy Sunday if I do say so. I hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Did Someone Say, Date Night?

Dress // Shoes // Sunnies… 25% off, WRIGHT25

Let’s Take a Peak Inside The Theater…

 

Good Morning Friends!

Last night was a very special night because it was *drumroll please* Date Night! Jake and I almost never go out just the two of us. In fact it’s mid July and we have only been out just the 2 of us one other night this year. Needless to say, this date night was long over due.

I have been wanting to see Baby Driver since I saw the preview and finally Jake asked for a date night enough times that he wore me down. We decided to see it at iPic since it’s more than just a theater but rather an experience.

From the moment I walked in I was instantly relaxed. The lighting is rather dim and there is a nice aura about the place. We checked in at the concierge desk and she kindly escorted downstairs to the lounge and theater area. As you can see from the photos above there is an entire lounge area where you can sit, talk, and order food/drinks before or after the movie. I loved this area and it was the perfect place to grab a drink and talk a bit before the movie.

When it was time to be seated for the movie the manager on duty kindly walked us to our seats and gave a tour of the sitting area. Our seats were waiting for us with pillows and a fleece blanket. How awesome  is that? I always wish I had snuck a blanket into the theater before so this was like a dream come true. I was also impressed with the amount of storage available. There was a place for my purse and everything.

We ordered food before the movie started and they brought it out to us in courses during the movie. It seriously couldn’t have been better timed how they brought it out either. First, when the previews were starting an attendant brought each seat their bag of popcorn (the best part!) Then as the movie was starting our drinks were delivered. I got a coke and Jake got an orange cream and they also brought us each a water. It was so nice having a ice cold glass to drink from instead of a paper cup. A few minutes later our appetizer was brought out, warm pretzels with mustard and jalapeño cheese. Yum! Towards the middle of the movie we were brought tater tots and sliders. I was so full off eating my entire popcorn, but these tater tots couldn’t keep me away. I never realized how much I loved tater tots before. The sliders were super yummy too! When the movie was ending is when our dessert was brought out, Smores a la mode! It was so delicious and the perfect thing to end the movie with. Our waitress was also the nicest girl on the planet. I wanted to give her a hug at the end because she was seriously a rock star and made our night unforgettable with her attentiveness to making sure everything was perfect for us.

On our walk back to the car I couldn’t stop smiling. It was by far the best date night we had gone on since having Lila. Also something about walking through the One Colorado alley at night with the twinkling lights gives me the kind of magical feeling you get around Christmas time. We might just have to make date night a more regular thing. Oh and Baby Driver did it not disappoint. If you haven’t seen yet runnnn to theaters. Literally stop what you’re doing and go to the theater. IT’S SO GOOD.

Everyone Wins At Dinner Time

We visited the Fazoli’s Chino Hills Location.

Hi Everyone!

If the word pizza is mentioned in our home, then Lila will hear it and ask to get pizza 100 times or until we get it (whichever comes first). So we decided to try Fazoli’s after hearing they removed all artificial ingredients from the entire menu. There is a Fazoli’s on the way home from Jake’s new work, and I have noticed the sign from a mile away. It is eye catching and fun and somewhere that I could tell Lila would just love. Because well, pizza.

I checked out their Yelp page and they had really great reviews. The inside looked clean and kid friendly, which is a huge factor in trying somewhere new to eat. So we took the leap and went there for a family dinner.

As much as I like pizza, I changed my mind at the counter and ordered the Chicken Alfredo with a side salad. If I eat pizza or pasta for dinner, I almost always crave a salad and Fazoli’s had a huge assortment of delicious options. Jake got the penne with marinara sauce, which is his favorite thing to eat for dinner. They also gave us breadsticks for the table that were so yummy! I had one but I wanted to eat twelve. Yum!

Lila was very pleased with the cheese pizza, and was so excited that that’s what she was eating for dinner. It felt like a lot of food when it first arrived at the table but it got eaten so fast that before we knew it they were bringing out our dessert. We decided on one dessert to share, the brownie gelato sundae. Did your mouth just water too? It was seriously so good that we will be coming back just to have that for dessert again. Haha. Seriously though!

A major mom win is that Fazoli’s menu is completely clean of all artificial sweeteners, flavors, preservatives and colors as part of its 0% Artificial 100% Delicious “Naturally Italian” initiative. I can see us coming back here when we need a night of Italian dining, but without spending more. Or I might just want another Italian Strawberry Ice. 😉

If there’s a Fazoli’s near you, try it! Because I snagged you a coupon for $3 off $10 or more at Fazoli’s: http://bit.ly/2rSV9aP

Bonapetit!

Family Beach Day

Today we went to a little beach in Ranchos Palos Verdes. Jake and I had our wedding ceremony at Wayfarer’s Chapel so the town as a whole is dear to our hearts. We were recommended this beach from a friend, saying it was small and perfect to take our toddler to. It was a bit of hike to get down to the beach but the scenery was so gorgeous we didn’t mind. The walk back up on the hill though… not as easy.

We don’t go to the beach all that often, so this truly was an experience for us. We brought Lila’s favorite mermaid toys and made sure we could provide a shady spot in case she wasn’t that into it. Luckily she had a great time, meaning we all had a great time. She really controls the mood for the whole family.

Jake taught Lila to search for seashells and together they found so many cool ones. It was very cute to see Lila trying to pick up every single shell to show Jake. Their relationship is truly blossoming and it is something I have been waiting to witness for a long time. She gets so excited when Jake walks in the door home from work. She knows he is coming home to play.

Jake recently started a new job which I will share more about later. So far it has done wonders for our family life and I am excited to make finally make happy memories on the weekends as a family. Until next week. XO
