Moms Meet Wow Summit 2015

http://www.greenmomsmeet.com/summit2015-register
 
I am so excited that I will be attending this years WOW Summit in my home town of San Diego. Not only will I get the opportunity to mingle with some of my favorite companies that I have learned about while being a member of Moms Meet, but I will also get a chance to meet some of my fellow bloggers. This is a wonderful opportunity to be socialize with other moms and learn about the latest family friendly and "green" products out there. It's also an opportunity to score some free products and possibly win some fabulous prizes. Some of the brand names that will be featured at WOW include Veri, Sunsweet, Dr. Bronner's and many more.
 
This event will be held the weekend of October 23-24 at the Town and Country Resort located in Mission Valley, San Diego. While their will be several blogger workshops and other blogger only activities, you don't need to be a blogger to attend. In fact Moms Meet wants to see anyone who is interested in connecting with the latest healthy and natural brands there. You are even invited to bring your family and have them enjoy the resort and local San Diego attractions while you coalesce with like minded people.
 
To find out more about the event and register visit Moms Meet here.  Hope to see you there!

Summer Fun: Splish Splash

Summer is a great time for your little ones to take swim lessons. Many city rec centers offer affordable lessons. Penelope has been taking lessons for a couple of years now but we took a break during the school year and started up again this summer. She goes to Noonan Family Swim School and is currently swimming at an intermediate to advanced level.


Not only is swimming a great skill to know but it is a great way to cool off during the summer heat. It is also good exercise!


Penelope's goal is to get her skill up enough that she can learn to surf in the ocean. You go little fishy!

Summer Fun: A Day at the Farm

Looking for some summer fun? Why not visit a local farm. Many farms have fun activities during the summer. There are several farms in our area that offer fruit picking, horse camps, or the opportunity to just bring a lunch and picnic around some beautiful surroundings. Last week Penelope visited a local alpaca farm, The Alpaca Hacienda with her school summer camp. It was her first time riding a school bus so she was pretty excited. They got to tour the ranch and learn all about the cute and furry alpacas, feed them, create crafts, go shopping and enjoy a lovely picnic lunch. She had a blast!



Alpaca's are a domesticated member of the camel family. You can read all about them here.

Yummy in my Tummy- Hana Sushi


Hana Sushi is our go to sushi place in Temecula. Mostly because it is right around the corner from our house but also because it is pretty delicious. The service and food has been consistent since our first visit. I can't believe I haven't shared a review before.

Hana Sushi is clean and the d├ęcor is pretty and inviting. The water feature upon entering is really nice! Since we frequent this place so much my goal is to try every roll on the menu, I know i'm a foodie dork. This last visit Penelope ordered her usual Ikura and California Roll.



While I ordered three rolls for my mom and I to share.


The Spanish Roll is Salmon, Crab, Cucumber, Cilantro, Green Onion, Avocado, Jalapenos. It is delicious and fresh tasting. My mom enjoys spicy sushi rolls but the jalapenos were very mild on this roll.


The Popcorn Lobster Roll is Chris' go to roll, he orders it every time. It's pretty tasty despite the fact that it does not contain any bit of lobster. Instead it is basically a California Roll topped with tempura battered and fried crawfish. The stuff is piled on top of the roll and you have to dig your way to it. Chris always ends up having to share this roll with Penelope and I, it's kinda addictive.

 
The Volcano Roll was new to me. It arrived in flames! I thought this was a nice touch and made the roll extra fun. This is a cooked roll that does not contain rice. Great if you are low carbing it. In fact Hana Sushi has a few rolls that are rice free and tasty. The Volcano Roll is White Fish wrapped around Scallop, Crab, Avocado, Cream Cheese topped with Masago and then baked. This was really good and I will be ordering it again.
 
Hana Sushi also has your traditional sushi and sashimi as well as several Japanese entrees and appetizers. Be sure to check out their specials board, they often have Toro! For around $50 you can get this delicious and generous helping of fresh Toro. It is so worth it!

60's Garage and Crunchy Munchy Potato Chips

Nothing makes this chip addict more excited than seeing a flavor of potato chip that I have never tried.


I spotted these 4th of July weekend and couldn't resist. Kettle Chips are already some of the best. You can't beat the crunch, so I was pretty sure I would like these. I did like them but they could have been a little more pepperoncini-y. They just needed a little more tang and maybe a bit more salt and I would have ate the whole bag. Well...I guess it's a good thing they were lacking some taste than.

And with that I leave you with some Shadows of Knight and my theme song.
