Apparel Candy

With Christmas right around the corner, I have already started shopping for Christmas gifts. Since I have two little rascals who make it nearly impossible to shop in peace, I do most of my shopping online. I've gotten pretty good at looking around for the best deals and figuring out which sizes work best.

I was fortunate enough to be asked to review a wholesale clothing website called Apparel Candy. I was eager to do this because it is right up my alley and, really, who doesn't love to shop online? It's so easy and convenient!! Especially for those of us with little kids or if you work crazy hours and don't have time to go from store to store to find something.

New customers get 15% off their first order at Apparel Candy. They have a huge variety of choices for apparel, sunglasses, accessories, cosmetics, fragrances, shoes, and handbags!! Their wholesale jewelry is so inexpensive! My heart is beating faster talking about it just like any true online shopping addict.

Here are just a few of my faves...






Apparel Candy prides themselves on having the best prices, great customer care, fast and reliable shipping and refund policies.

Happy shopping!!

Family Vacation To San Diego

We recently got to go on a little family vacation to Escondido/San Diego! The first day was a beach day. But do you know how much work it is to take a baby and toddler on a vacation where you will be outside most of the time? I mean, the sunscreen applications alone...whew!! Family memories though, right?

The beach was a lot of fun! Emily loved running to the waves and then running away from them as they came toward her, which gave me a heart attack each time. Fellow beach goers were watching and laughing as she squealed in delight and I was pestering Michael to stay closer to her and James was happy as can be as long as he was held and not put on the sand!

I taught Emily how to build a sand castle, which, let's face it, was just wet sand in disheveled upside down bucket form one right after the other but hey, she loved it!

After we left the beach we checked into our resort and had dinner at the restaurant on site. We ended up eating there a few times because it was delicious and convenient! The next day we ventured around the area, checked out the mall, went to lunch, and then came back to the resort for some fun in the sun. There was a splash pad and several pools to choose from so we hung out there for a while.

This is the only picture I took while we were at the resort. #fail

But trust me, it was gorgeous and we loved it. Our room had a full kitchen, living room, bedroom, and giant bathroom with a nice shower. Thank you, Expedia! Haha.

The next day (Saturday), we got all ready, slathered up on sunscreen again (I think we used almost an entire tube of sunscreen on this trip between the four of us), packed up, and checked out of the hotel. We went to breakfast, got a couple of things at Target, and then met up with Michaels brother Tyler, his wife (my SIL) Sarah, and our nephew Everett. We went to the Wild Animal Park (Safari Park)! It was awesome. We saw all sorts of animals. Emily especially loved the giraffes and elephants. I'm kind of "anti zoo establishments" unless they are rescued and there for their well being so this was a good place to go for us.

Also, we've become "those people" with the crazy hats out in public...but NONE of us got sunburned all weekend so I don't care!! It made for some good laughs the whole time. I felt self conscious wearing my hat and every time I looked at Michael I couldn't help but giggle. We're old. We do what we want, including wear these hats to avoid sunburn.

Family vacation- SUCCESS!

This and That

Here are some random things that have been going on:

On New Years Eve we got some snow in Southern California and everyone was very excited!!

We bought a car!! We had been sharing one old, small car for a long time and so we are very excited to have a newer, roomy family car that will allow our family to grow! It's a 2014 GMC Acadia SLT and we LOVE it!!

We've been upgrading some things in the house. Nothing huge or expensive, but doing things that make the house look so much better that are inexpensive and easy. Things I've been wanting to do the whole time we've lived here! We've changed out light fixtures, fans, toilets, faucets, etc. I've also done a couple of other projects on the side. 

I did a gallery wall in our living room...

And we painted the guest bathroom a sandy color, did the kids footprints in sand, had a friend make a "Nude Beach" sign, and I just framed some pictures of us at the beach for the guest bathroom. It's coming together nicely! The shower curtain and towels are blue.

I cut my hair!! Here are before and after pictures. It has lightened up a lot since I got it done but it's definitely not as blonde as it was. I'm kind of embarrassed about my hair in the before picture!! Yikes.

We're just really happy!!
