See's Easter Candy.

Whoever says Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year clearly hasn't tried these See's Assorted Eggs. In my opinion (at least candy-wise), Easter is definitely the most wonderful time of the year! I kid you not, I look forward to Easter candy all year. These egg truffles are my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE. My dad and step mom are usually kind enough to send us some Easter candy every year and the care package usually contains at least one of these (that they tell me to share with Seth and Mason...have they met me?! I must love Seth and Mason a lot in order to share chocolate with them! [side note : I DO love them that much and I DO share with them, don't worry]) The one package they send is never enough and I am always left wanting more. By the time I head over to See's they have long since been sold out and I am left waiting until next Easter for more. So this year, I did not procrastinate and when I was at the mall the other day, I stopped by See's to get us 2 boxes! They are a little pricey at $6 a box (they are See's candy after) and hey, they don't sell them year-round so I think I can justify my purchase :)

Apple One to One.

When we bought our laptop a couple weeks ago, we also bought Apple One to One. It is $99 and good for one year from purchase date. In my opinion, it is TOTALLY worth it. I mean, I am pretty technology savvy, but I haven't had a Mac in years and there is so much I don't know/never learned before. The One to One is where you can sign up for individual one on one training sessions, group training sessions, or opening training sessions. One on one sessions are just you and a trainer. I signed up for an iPhoto one on one session last week because I had some specific questions. The guy was SO HELPFUL and even explained more about the One to One program. I won't go into too much detail, but if you click here, you can find out more about it. If you plan to buy any Apple product anytime soon, I totally recommend this. It's good for iPad, iPhone, MacBook, etc. I'm in the process of signing up for more classes...for my MacBook and for my iPhone and iPad!

Starbucks Vanilla Macchiato.

A couple weeks ago, Starbucks started advertising for the vanilla macchiato. Being the caramel macchiato and vanilla latte lover that I am, I was intrigued. Could they have possibly combined my two favorite drinks into one amazing new drink? Why yes! They have! Oh my goodness. If you like caramel macchiato, you have got to try this. It really tastes nothing like a vanilla latte (it's much sweeter), so if you like that, you may not like this. Personally, I like mine iced, non-fat, and grande but no matter how you like it, I highly recommend you try this!

Disneyland Passes.

We decided to splurge and get Disneyland passes last year and I have mixed feelings on it. It cost an arm and a leg...and another arm and leg...and then another arm and leg that I don't have. We didn't use them as much as I had hoped, but we definitely went enough to pay for them. But would we have wanted to go as much if we didn't have passes? So was it really worth it? We will never know. But we decided not to renew this year. Or at least not now (even though you get a huge discount of like $20 off if you renew before they expire - how generous). So, last week, we took one last trip! And we got some great memories :) Especially that middle picture. Seriously. My husband did AMAZING and captured Mason and I both SMILING. It was a true Disney miracle!

March Citrus Lane Box.

A little late sharing this as it is now April, but hey, better late than never. March's Citrus Lane box was on of the best ones we've gotten so far! It had a super cute book, You are my baby : Ocean by Lorena Siminovich, a super useful MediBuddy First Aid Kit, the always handy CleanWell wipes, and some super fun Hape Jungle Parade animals. Overall, the box was a hit with mom and baby! And we are counting down until our April box arrives!

Have a great weekend!

  1. That march citrus lane box looks amazing! I love apple but I totally know I don't know enough about my laptop. I'm going to check out this One to One thing.

  2. That parade of animals is so cute! And I think I will be getting that apple one on one next time I buy a laptop!

  3. I love See's sooo much. My mom is from LA and growing up my gma would always send truffles and lollis at xmas. I can only get it here at Christmas or at the airport (?). Those eggs look so good, I can only imagine.

  4. I got a Mac laptop for Christmas and I really need to sign up for a one on one session. I have no idea how to use it for photos. I think you finally convinced me to just do it.

  5. I have had a Disneyland pass for years but let it expire when I was pregnant last year. I didn't renew (yet) this year either, but think I will later in the year (after the summer blackout dates). I think my son is a little young yet (almost 11 months) but I am planning to turn him into a Disneyphile (like myself and my Mom) as soon as possible! We always get the SoCal resident passes so overall I don't find the cost to be TOO ridiculous. ;-)
    That's funny you got that book in your Citrus Lane box! My MIL just bought the farm animal one for us recently, but we didn't get one in our box last month.

  6. Oh ignore that last comment about if you renewed your passes! Found the answer. Disney passes are just out of this world expensive. Aria is free but it costs the exact same as an adult as soon as she hits 3. I'm not sure I'll be able to swallow that. I know we will enjoy our passes now and she will have fun, but I'm not sure a 3 year old is going to benefit from that price increase. I wasn't planning on an annual pass this year at all but my husband decided we could splurge on it, so I'm not complaining =) And, that middle pic is really the best!

    I am going to have to try that vanilla macchiatto, sounds right up my alley!
