TechTots Classes at Microsoft Store


I know this might sound weird since it’s only the end of February, but I’m already planning for summer. Last year my daughter really really wanted to attend the Apple Store Film Camp and we had no luck securing a spot. This year, I’ve already signed up to be notified when registration begins, because she REALLY wants to attend the free camp. As I was looking around for something similar at the Microsoft Store, I stumbled upon TechTots Classes.

These super cool and free classes are offered at Microsoft Stores across the nation. Your store will become a hands-on, interactive playground where children ages 2-5 will learn by doing — and parents can learn tech tips and discover the latest in technology. Classes are usually an hour long.

There are a variety of TechTots Classes including TechTots Dance, Pets, Mystery, Safety, Safari, Carnival and much much more. To find a class near you head here.

Dana Point Festival of Whales : March 2-3 and 9-10

One of my favorite Southern California events is back and I can’t wait to make it out to one of the weekends of the Dana Point Festival of Whales. The festival is celebrating it’s 42nd anniversary and features two weekends of family fun. The festival will feature of course whale watching, kids free fishing clinic and free fishing trips, art lessons, a mobile Marine Mammal Museum, a rubber ducky race, a festival of whale parade, live entertainment, food and much much more (like I could go on and on!).

There will be free shuttle service available on both weekends. You can park and ride free on both weekends all day long. Most of the events and activities are either free or very low cost. It’s an educational experience and also just plain fun.

Wiggles & Giggles Consignment



When I first became a mom, I bought everything new, the baby gear, clothes, toys, you name it. I didn’t know anything about consignment or baby resale stores, until one day I stumbled into one and out went spending money on things my children quickly outgrew. By the time, my son came around, a year and a half after my daughter was born, I learned to buy and sell from consignment stores. I love sharing about good ones, and Wiggles & Giggles Consignment is one you don’t want to miss!
