Railroad Days 2016

Railroad Days, May 6-7, 2017


It’s one of my favorite events this weekend, Railroad Days at the Fullerton Train Station!  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!

Fullerton Train Station
120 East Santa Fe Ave.
Fullerton, CA 92832

And if you’re hungry afterwards, there’s a fun-ky restaurant down the street called Angelo’s and Vinci’s that’s very family friendly.


Warehouse Sales!

Splendid/Ella Moss/7 for mankind is holding a warehouse sale tomorrow!   Splendid and Ella Moss are my favorite contemporary sportswear brands. Splendid is fairly casual but the fabrics are super duper soft and luxurious.  Ella Moss is more contemporary with lots of design details. At a department store, the average retail for a Splendid top is about $60 & up but at the sale, it’s ridonculously low!

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.

Time: 8am-2pm


5500 South Boyle Ave, 1st Floor
Vernon, CA 90058

Payment Type Accepted: Cash/MC/VISA/AMEX/DIS/Checks w/ID

ASICS Warehouse Sale Flyer  Asics is also having a sale this weekend in Irvine. Happy Shopping!

Mommy-n-Me Preschool Spring 2017 registration

The ABC Adult School offers a parent education program, which is essentially a mommy-n-me preschool program.  Spring registration online began on December 16, 2016 at 9:00 a.m. or you can enroll in person at the Cuesta campus starting on January 13 at 8:00 a.m.  Spaces fill up fast but there are still plenty of classes available.  I love this program for so many reasons.  Because it is a parent participation preschool program, parents are really able to get involved with their child’s development.  Also, it encourages our toddlers to develop their social skills as well as allowing parents an opportunity to meet other parents with children of the same age.   The classes are broken up by age and held at different campuses throughout  the district.  For the youngest group, this class is very similar to Gymboree play and music classes. The pricing varies by class but it is so reasonable for the experience you & your child will be receiving.   For more information, here is a link to the website: ABC Adult School.

Hudson Jeans warehouse sale

Hudson Jeans Sample Sale

The  Hudson warehouse sale is here again this weekend on 11/11 and 11/12  The sale is very well organized and you will find the best selection on the first day. The prices run from $15-$40. Seconds will be $20 and regular production will be $40.  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.
