Visit Skyline Hills Park and Recreation Center

I’ve been going to Skyline Hills Park and Recreation Center since I was a kid. I really only had fun going inside the center because of the people I met up there to hang out with other than that the park was a lame excuse for a park. There never was much to do. It’s was pretty much slide, swing, done. Plus, it was always a little sketchy (lots of bums hanging out) and known to have shootings up there back then. Now the area is pretty policed and it’s becoming a nice little family spot. It’s officially one of the coolest parks in San Diego in my book.

About a year and a half ago they started reconstruction on the park but it paused for quite a while and I’m not sure why. I just know that when we would go to my daughter’s cheer practice on the basketball courts in the summer they weren’t working on it. Yet even under construction I could tell it was going to a huge improvement once it was complete. My family has been patiently waiting for it’s completion and when we found out last week it was open we couldn’t wait to go see the new and improved Skyline Hills Park.

Since Covid has still restricted a lot of activities we’ve been park hopping in different areas to pass the time. I must say I was immediately impressed by the new Skyline Hills Park. This neighborhood definitely deserved a new park. It is definitely a child’s playground dream. It has enough equipment and fun things to keep your kids entertained for hours. They even built a gazebo with tables which we saw people having a kids birthday party underneath. I foresee this park getting pack as word spreads of its reopen. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

There’s are 4 types of slides, swings, a zip line, tunnels, monkey bars, tetter totters, merry go rounds, and lots of climbing attractions. My two year had a ball. He was so hyped moving from one playground to the other. He’s exploring a lot more now, his strength and balance are getting better so I’ve loosen the reigns and am letting him discover what he likes. This park is perfect because I can let him roam and learn and not worry about his safety. The park made with rubber and it’s soft enough that he can take a tumble and get right back up and continue playing.

There’s also a balance beams, contraptions that spark learning and xylophone area for the kids to play with sounds. We had so much fun and there were plenty of kids for my son to play with but we kept to ourselves. We made sure we social distanced as much as we could. I am very aware that Covid 19 is still around and I took proper precautions for me to feel comfortable and decided to play with my kids at my own risk. We hand sanitized a lot but my son didn’t wear a mask. He’s two. He just wouldn’t keep it on anyways. At the end of the day I’m sure at this point in the pandemic I would hope that if you were experiencing any symptoms you wouldn’t even be at the park or anywhere else out of common decency.

Will I come back? Yes!

Bosses Who Brunch

Me and YouTuber @adoseofkryssy. Go like, comment and subscribe to her channel.

Last Sunday, I had the pleasure of attending a wonderful networking event called Bosses Who Brunch. I was able to catch part 2 Plot.Plan. Execute. of this 3 part series. At the event I got to meet some really cool women who are entrepreneurs like myself trying to turn their dreams into reality. I bought my ticket for $25 last minute (2 days before the event) and I’m so glad I just spontaneously made the move to act on it because the energy at the Bosses Who Brunch event hosted by Mariah Darsha was a breath of fresh of air. I was definitely inspired to keep pushing and stick with my online business even amid Covid.

From Miss To Mrs

On October 25th, I married the love of my life. We exchanged vows at Cuvier Park as known as the wedding bowl in La Jolla, CA. Immediately after the ceremony we had our reception at The Cuvier Club about 2 blocks away. The decor, the dress, the venue-everything came together perfectly. I’m just so grateful for my pandemic wedding day to have gone exactly how I imagined the most perfect wedding day in my head. Even with the few hiccups everything was perfect. The both of us had the time of our lives which is the most important detail when planning a wedding.

Let’s talk about what we only usually talk about in our inner circle.

Friendsgiving At Louisiana Purchase

This Saturday, I hosted an unforgettable Friendsgiving for my mom friends at Louisiana Purchase. It was a magical night in San Diego with tons of inspiring stories, lots of laughs, impeccable food, drinks, beautiful ambiance and a chance for all of us to make a difference and give back. Instead of doing your typical potluck for Friendsgiving I thought it’d be fun to switch it up and get my boss lady friends out the house for a ladies night at a hip restaurant and do some charity work.

We are so blessed throughout the year it feels good to give back to the less fortunate. My life hasn’t been perfect. I’m still waiting on some prayers to be answered but I do what I can. This year I can truly say I’m so fortunate and grateful to be around so many strong like minded women willing to do some good with their blessings. These are my tribe of sistas and I’m thankful for the support of each one of them. Without strength in numbers we are powerless. With it we can do amazing thing and this night was proof of it.

Breakfast Bitch Review

I hosted a mommy meetup at Breakfast Bitch last Saturday with around 6 of my girls. I’ve been wanting to try this new spot for a while and I’m glad I did. The food was delicious, the slogans on the wall were litty and the vibe was mad cool. They played good music, the lines weren’t extremely long and the staff was super friendly and catered to all our needs.

How To Make Milksicles

Teething is a normal part of a baby’s development when their baby teeth are in the process of erupting. It typically occurs from 6-24 months of age and trust me you will know.

During this time your child will most likely experience discomfort due to tender and swollen gums, become irritable, go through tons of bibs from drooling, and try to bite on any and everything to relieve the pain. Oh and lots of crying.

Teething is a stressful time for you and your baby as you struggle to find ways to relieve their pain but thanks to one mom named Tasia Blackwell (same name gang 💁🏾‍♀️ so I like her already) who invented Milksicles there’s a solution to this challenge.
