ABC Summer Enrichment Program

Happy Memorial Day, everyone! Summer is rapidly descending upon us and parents all over are scrambling to find things to occupy those little brilliant minds.  For those of you with incoming 6th to 9th grade students (2016-2017 school year), the ABC Education Foundation has announced its inaugural 2016 Summer Enrichment Program.  The Summer Enrichment Program will be held over several sessions spanning June 27 – August 5, 2016. Various classes will be offered by credentialed teachers at Tetzlaff Accelerated Learning Academy, 12351 Del Amo Blvd, Cerritos, CA 90703. Class sizes are limited to small sizes to provide optimal teacher/student ratios. Visit their site to learn more about the programs and to register.

Splendid Warehouse Sale!


You are invited to our Warehouse Sale

The Splendid/Ella Moss warehouse sale is here again this weekend!   Splendid and Ella Moss are my favorite contemporary sportswear brands. Everything is fairly casual but the fabrics are super duper soft and luxurious.  At a department store, the average retail for a top is about $60 & up but at the sale, it’s $20. This is how some of the items were priced at the last sale.

They also have stuff for kids and men as well. There are no dressing rooms so plan on pulling stuff over what you’re wearing. Parking is $10 in the building or there is metered parking, which is $4 an hour. Happy Shopping!

Sunday, May 15 is Museums of the Arroyo Day and it only happens once a year.  What does that mean?  It means that six museums located in Los Angeles and Pasadena open their doors — free of charge — from noon to 5 for one day only.  The 6 museums are The Gamble House, Heritage Square Museum, the Los Angeles Police Museum, the Lummis Home and Garden, the Pasadena Museum of History, and the Autry’s Historic Southwest museum.  There is a free shuttle service available so you can explore all the museums conveniently. For more information, click here.

On Saturday, May 14 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, all neighborhood Fire Stations in the county of Los Angeles will be expecting your visit.  Get a personal tour of your neighborhood Fire Station from one of your neighborhood fireman.  We visited fire station #30 in Cerritos on Pioneer and it was so fascinating and informative.  Hope you get a chance to visit.

Hudson Warehouse Sale


The  Hudson warehouse sale is here again for 2 days on 5/13 and 5/14.  The sale is very well organized and the best selection is on the first day.  This year, the price range is $20-$50. In the past, the seconds were $40 and regular production was $60.  By seconds, they mean there are slight imperfections and/or irregularities.  I picked up 3 pairs of seconds for the price of one at full price and I love them.  I never noticed the difference.  You do have to know your size and fit though because you cannot try anything on so stop by Nordstrom and try on a couple of pairs before you go.

Soccer Registration!!

Soccer awards

Mark your calendars!  Registration begins on Saturday, May 7 for the City of Cerritos youth soccer league at the Cerritos Sports Complex from 10 am to 4 pm if you are a resident.  For non-residents, registration begins on May 14.  If this is your first time signing up, bring something to read and be prepared to wait!  Based on my own experience, the wait time is at least an hour or more.  The fee is $47 and your child gets a jersey and a trophy at the end of the season.  The kids are divided by birth year so kids born in 2011 will be entering Rookie I and so forth.  The Cerritos Sports Complex is located at 19900 Bloomfield Ave., Cerritos.

If that’s not enough soccer for you, check out the AYSO (American Youth Soccer Organization) program.  Cerritos falls under Region 54.  Registration is already underway.  Please check their website for more information.


Railroad Days 2016


It’s Railroad Days at the Fullerton Train Station this weekend!  This event is so much fun.  There are large gazebos filled with model railroad displays as well as tours of actual locomotives.  There will also be food booths, and even free trackless train rides for the kids. Best of all this event is FREE!   Please don’t miss it!
