Splitsville Luxury Lanes Opens at Downtown Disney Anaheim

Splitsville Luxury Lanes at Downtown Disney District in Anaheim has been open since March 15th. With 600 dining seats, two craft cocktail bars, two bustling kitchens, 20 bowling lanes and a covered patio with a stage that features live music 365 days a year, Splitsville makes a great option for special nights out with family and friends! We have been. The food is great, and the way they lay out the lanes, it feels like little private bowling parties. I mean have you been to a bowling alley that serves sushi? It’s fancy, right?

John’s Incredible Pizza Company Opens NEW Westminster Mall Location!

John’s Incredible Pizza Company is celebrating their 25th Anniversary, and if you haven’t visited one, you’re going to wonder what took you so long. My kids love it! We go, because right now my kids enjoy arcades, and I go because their All-You-Can-Eat-Buffet has a wide range of options for everyone and it’s not terribly expensive. In Orange County, there is one at Buena Park Mall and now one at Westminster Mall.   All You Can Eat Buffet! I remember the first time going to one of these, the biggest surprise is you can’t just walk in and play games. Purchasing their All-You-Can-Eat Buffet is required. So if you plan … READ MORE

House of Blues Anaheim Birthday Dinner + OMD Concert Recap!

Post written by me for House of Blues. All opinions are my own.  My husband and I both have birthdays in April. We are about a week apart so we often blow out our candles together. One of our favorite celebrations this year was at a Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD) concert at the House of Blues in Anaheim. They’re one of our favorite 80’s band, and they still sound good after all this time! They performed mostly their greatest hits and some of their new songs. It was nostalgic, and we would love to see them again live if they ever come back! Dinner Before the Concert Before the concert, … READ MORE

Olson Homes – Ventana Walk Santa Ana Selling Out Fast!

Post written by me for Olson Homes. All opinions are my own.  Last weekend, Ventana Walk in Santa Ana hosted a “Tacos & Fun” event where you could stop in to check out their open model homes then grab lunch right in their backyard. They were showing two floor plans – Plan 2 and Plan 3 which were beautifully decorated. I wanted to move right in! The Olson Company has been around since 1988. I like that it was self-guided so I can go room-to-room without the pressure of a salesperson, however, the representatives available were super friendly and helpful. They’re down to their last few units, and they are … READ MORE
