Halo Salt Spa

For a while now I’ve been hearing the buzz about “salt spas”, but never had a chance to check it out. I finally grabbed a few girlfriends and made it out to Halo Salt Spa.

What is a Salt Spa? According to the sweet owner, Ali, it’s the best room for you to sit (or even lay) in. Dry Salt Spa also known as Halotherapy, benefiting adults and children alike, as well as athletes. It is natural, safe and there are no harmful side effects.

We sat in their salt room for 45 minutes taking it all in. Some of us chatted while one mama took a little power nap.

Using a salt vaporizer the room is filled with a fine, breathable salt that doesn’t irritate your skin or cause choking and instead helps to purify your skin and clear up any respiratory issues that may be felt on a day-to-day basis. They even provide tissues around the room as lot’s of visitors end up clearing out their sinus by just breathing the fresh air.

For general respiratory hygiene, visiting Halo Salt spa once or twice a week will enhance the lung capacity, boost immune system, reduce stress and help promote sleep.

The high mineral content of the therapeutic grade salt is an effective natural treatment for asthma, acne, allergies, eczema, sinusitis, psoriasis, COPD bronchitis, and emphysema.

My favorite part was playing with the salt.

They also provide a special toddler time at 10 am and 4pm. This “class” is especially for the kids. The kids can dig in the salt with sand toys (provided), read books or just hang out in the salt room.

For $30 they also have Kundalini Yoga classes inside the salt room.

Even the bathroom has a couple salt scrubs by the sink.

Dr. Suess’ Birthday {2019}

I love celebrating little events and getting crafty with the kids. So when Dr. Seuss’ birthday showed up on my calendar I started planning his birthday party.

To celebrate his birthday we threw a “Green Eggs and Ham” themed breakfast.

Since we keep kosher and don’t eat ham I found these vegan “sausage” patties at Trader Joe’s for the occasion.

We had green eggs, “sausage”, hash browns and cucumber discs.

We also had green smoothies (spinach, banana, peach and yogurt)!

I kept the decor pretty simple. I hung a polka dot banner and party hats I found at the Target Bullseye section. I also included a few books we’ve collected over the years as a centerpiece.

My kiddos loved the green birthday party!!

Sarah read a book to us and I shared my favorite quote below.

Happy birthday Dr. Seuss! Thank you for writing such fun books.

The MOXI museum is located in Santa Barbara where this kid friendly museum focuses on Science and creativity.

Floor 1

We touched, played, danced and even recorded a song.

Floor 1 also had an outdoor space. The kids played with magnates and different forms of air.

Floor 2

My favorite room was the light room! We payed with a ginormous Lite Brite wall, magnatiles, and designed on the projector.

We also got to build and race the cars we built.

Floor 3

This outdoor space is a great place for the kids to run around, play with the musical pieces of art, check out the look out tower for different parts of the city, and play with water (which we later found out we were not supposed to go inside. Oops!).

It’s a great day when 2 out 4 kiddos pass out as soon as we get in the car.

Documenting 10 pictures on the 10th day of the month. Here is a peek into our day!


I’m so thankful to my sweet hubby for hanging out with the kids on weekend mornings so that I could sleep in. I finally peeled my self out of bed and made breakfast. Breakfast was a bagel, cream cheese and hard boiled egg with coffee.


I unloaded the dishwasher and loaded it back again and went over to the couch and snuggled up to watch kids baking championship. We love this show!


I wrapped a few birthday gifts for the weekend. I love a fun pattern!


I started my least favorite household thing, laundry. Ugh!


I got dressed for the day and did my hair. My wet brush is a must to tame this beast. Plus my kids love theirs too


I popped over to Sarah’s room. She was playing with her water beads set.


Birthday party for Miss Aubrey. Her decor was the cutest!


Back home and in Pj’s. Hubby made dinner and we watched The Titan Games on the couch. After the kids went to bed, I passed out. I wasn’t feeling too well.

What’s Up Wednesday {January 2018}

I’m linking up with Shay and Sheaffer for some random monthly fun.

What we’re eating this week…

While on the plane last week I came across a recipe for Fennel Citrus Roasted Chicken in a magazine. It was delish!

What I’m reminiscing about…

Spending 5 days with my family in Florida after my sister gave birth to her beautiful baby boy!

What I’m loving…

Jacob got back into gymnastics and I’m loving watching how much fun he is having.

What we’ve been up to…

It’s been super cold (low 30’s) and rainy. Sometimes J and I park outside of Sarah’s school and just watch movies in the car while it rains. We love the sound of rain and have fun getting cozy.

What I’m dreading…

The hot temperatures! I love winter!

What I’m working on…

Our Spring Break plans. Can’t to travel again!

What I’m excited about…

After a very long and exhausting 3 months Jacob’s preschool opened back up. Due to the Woolsey fires they had to do extensive renovations, which unfortunately took a little longer then expected. He’s so happy to be back at his “old school”. So thankful for his teachers and the sweet pictures they post online.

What I’m watching/reading…

Thanks to my new smart tv I’ve been watching a lot of new shows. Check out my Netflix & Chill post here. My current favorite is Riverdale.

What I’m listening to…

I’ve been listening to Podcasts lately. My favorites are LA Cicks with my friend Sarah, Weekly Dose of BS with the girls from Housewives of Dallas and Rachel Hollis’ Rise.

What I’m wearing…

My Ugg boots on repeat. Eek it’s so cold!

What I’m doing this weekend…

Hubby and I are going to do a lot of dividing and conquering this weekend. Sarah is going to do her first Girl Scout cookie booth and Jacob is going to a birthday party.

What I’m looking forward to next month…

Valentine’s Day with my sweethearts.

What else is new…

Now that Sarah is a Girl Scout she selling cookies in neighborhood. It’s been so fun and a great learning experience for Sarah.

Question of the month is: What’s your favorite family Valentine’s Day traditions?

We have a family dinner with a decorated dining room table, we send Valentine’s, send Cards For Hospitalized Kids and I make them cutesy lunches on Valentine’s Day.

Happy Wednesday!

Netflix and Chill

Thanks to my new Smart TV in my bedroom, hubby and I have been watching a lot of Netflix lately. We’ve seen some really great shows and I thought it would be fun to share some of my/our current favorites and get a new ideas from you.


You was amazing!!! The suspense, the twists and turns! Loved every second of it. I’m also a huge Gossip Girl fan (hello early 2000) so seeing Penn Badgley in a starring role was lot’s of fun.

After all the suspense from You I needed something light. I stumbled upon Good Girls and quickly became obsessed. It’s about 3 mamas trying to help their families out. Their mishaps and family dynamics were hilarious. I highly recommended this show if you’re looking for something light and funny.

I’d like to consider myself an organized person, but after watching a season of Tidying Up I went through the house and made a call for donations pick up. It’s that good!

I’m so bummed I didn’t get to see Taylor Swift during her Reputation stadium tour so I was thrilled when I heard it was recorded and available on Netflix. Taylor is a great singer, but she’s an even better performer. This was fun to watch!

I love a good belly laugh, but I don’t find a lot of comedians funny. Sebastian Maniscalco is hilarious!!! And his Stay Hungry show was amazing! Complete belly laughs and even a few tears. Loved it!

Amazon Prime

We also watch shows on Amazon Prime so I made a separate section for those movies/shows.

Looking for a show you have to think a bit, then Homecoming is your show. It’s labeled as a physiological thriller, but it’s not scary. Just an edge of your seat kind of show. Without giving to much away, Julia Roberts plays a caseworker at a secret government facility where she starts therapy with a special soldier.

My friend, Beth told me about The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel show a couple days before my birthday. She simply said it’s a must see and I would love it. Guess what I did on my birthday weekend? Binged Mrs. Masiel and thoroughly enjoyed myself. She’s witty, quick, hilarious and a joy to watch. Can’t wait for season 3!!

What are you watching? Have any favorites we should check out? Please share below.

Mt. Frazier

Last Spring hubby and I had an open weekend so we took the kids to Mt. Frazier to play in the snow. Got to love So Cal! One minute you are at Malibu beach and then the next your driving to the mountains to play with snow.

I spy snow covered mountains.

Two hours later we made it to the mountain. We suited up and hit the fresh powder.

I love the snow! The crisp air, the huge trees, the adventure.

We grabbed our sled and took turns going down the mountain.

Having fun with my girl!

While Jacob and I did a couple of snow angels, Sarah drew in the snow.

Do you want to build a snowman?

Thanks for the fun memories Mt. Fraizer! Until next time.
