Get into the Holiday Spirit at Roger’s Gardens

Posted by on Dec 11, 2017 in Christmas, Events, Holiday | 0 comments

  Roger’s Gardens in Corona Del Mar never disappoints, especially around the holidays. This year, Rogers Gardens has transformed into “Joyeux Noel,” a glittery and fantastic shop full of pure holiday magic! Inside, Christmas trees stretch way up high, completely drenched in sparkling ornaments and twinkling lights. Each tree has its own unique theme and accessories to go along with it. There’s always a bit of whimsy in the displays at Roger’s too; my girls got a kick out of the table & chairs mounted on the ceiling! Outside, a toy train zips through a sea of tiny trees. Plush, velvety poinsettias add pops of red throughout the gardens. Now through December 23rd (11am to 6pm in the Amphitheater), you can even take pics with Santa! As I mentioned in my post around Halloween, there are lots of expensive...

  Have you ever been to Roger’s Gardens in Corona Del Mar? Well, if you haven’t you need to go! It’s more than just a garden store; it has the cutest home decor and gift items as well and is the perfect place to spend an afternoon walking around with your children. My two favorite times to go are at Halloween and Christmas. They go all out and will you get you right into the holiday spirit! They even have a relatively new restaurant on site called Farmhouse, that I’m dying to try!

Roger’s Gardens doesn’t just line up shelves with merchandise; they artfully beautifully arrange...

Family Fun at Farmer Boys

Posted by on Sep 18, 2017 in Dining | 0 comments

 We dined as a guest of the venue My daughters and I dined at Farmer Boys newest location in Laguna Hills this evening. We weren’t familiar with the restaurant chain, and I learned that they began 35 years ago and now have 90 locations. Their philosophy is “farm fresh food” that is made to order, using as much locally sourced produce and ingredients as possible. My girls were happy to hear that they served breakfast all day and choose to order breakfast for dinner. My kids are practically pancake connoisseurs and said that they were quite fluffy and delicious. They concluded their meal with thick creamy milkshakes and were VERY pleased! During dinner, I enjoyed a BLTA, it was delicious bread, and the produce was just as fresh and flavorful as they claim. The restaurant has an extensive menu...
