    Hidden Veggie Mac N Cheese

    I like to think that my little munchkin is a “simple eater” rather than a picky one BUT he pretty much only eats Annie’s Organic Macaroni and Cheese, fresh fruit, toast, hard boiled eggs, and cheese pizza.

    Summer Style

    Summer is right around the corner for us Orange County locals and I couldn’t be happier. I grew up by the beach so I was always the girl rockin’ jean shorts and flip flops whenever I could. Now that I’m a mom, I wanted to refine my style a little without losing the casual OC vibe. I’m the kind of…
