One of the hot buttons when eating at Disney is the Dining Plan. It comes with three different options and will add a high price tag to your trip but I really think it is worth it. It brought us peace of mind knowing that most of our food was paid for. [Read more…]

Take the family to these Seattle Restaurants

 You’ll love the variety of food at these Seattle restaurants.

Looking for some Seattle restaurants for a delicious meal? Look no further.

These two Seattle restaurants located in Seattle Southside which is conveniently located right in Seattle’s backyard couldn’t be more different from each other. They both have menus with tons of choices and everything we tried was delicious. I warn you though you will have a hard time deciding what to order, so many tantalizing choices at both Famous Dave’s BBQ and Moctezuma’s Mexican Restaurant & Tequila Bar – at Southcenter restaurants. We left both of them completely stuffed and took home leftovers!

Our Favorite Seattle Seafood Restaurants

These Top Seattle seafood restaurants are in Seattle Southside!

Recently my family and I headed to Seattle Southside, a convenient destination right in Seattle’s backyard to celebrate my hubby’s birthday. One of the amazing experiences we had was discovering some of the best Seattle seafood restaurants.

We love our seafood and of course being west coast people let’s just say we expect nothing less than fresh seafood cooked in tantalizing dishes. Seattle Southside did not disappoint, especially when it came to two of the best Seattle seafood restaurants we’ve ever been to Anthony’s Homeport in Des Moines and Salty’s Waterfront Seafood Grill at Redondo Beach in Des Moines. My mouth is practically watering right now thinking of the delectable food we had at both restaurants.

Salty’s Waterfront Seafood Grill is set in a picturesque setting that even when it’s partly downcast is still beautiful. The sun is trying to shine through making the reflection on the water even prettier.

Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort

 Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort – A Moms’ Getaway Retreat

Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort and Conference Centre is located on Vancouver Island. For those of us who live in the Vancouver area it is easily accessible via BC Ferries and even easier to get to if you’re on Vancouver Island. For visitors to either Vancouver or Vancouver Island it’s not only worth a visit to Tigh-Na-Mara it’s an experience that will provide you with lasting memories of a serene and beautiful environment, exquisite food, fabulous amenities and accommodations.

I have so many great moments to share about our mom’s getaway and of course oh so many pictures, too many that I can’t get them all here so I created a lovely PHOTO ALBUM that you can look at HERE

Pizza Press Restaurant Anaheim, California

Powered by Mom shares a delicious story about the Pizza Press in Anaheim

This summer during our family vacation we stayed at the Carousel Inn and Suites that is a stone’s throw away from Disneyland. Lucky for us the onsite restaurant is the Pizza Press, it’s an experience for not only your taste buds but it’s fun to watch. The pizzas are made with pizazz and precision, producing one of the most delicious meals you can have in the area and beyond. I’m thrilled to share this review of the Pizza Press with you even as I and my family drool wishing we could go to the Pizza Press right now!
