A Blast from the Past on Netflix (Giveaway)

A Blast from the Past on Netflix (Giveaway) - FamilyisFamilia.com

My kids hate when I start to watch an old movie or TV show when they’re home. I hear them complaining and grumbling about how I watch “my” shows and they “have” to sit through them as I watch and enjoy. And just like clockwork, the kids get hooked and watch the rest of whatever I’m watching with me. It never fails! It’s so hilarious.  Now thanks to Netflix, I can have my fix on shows that I grew up {Read More}

Luna Grill: A Delicious Review

Luna Grill in OC Review- FamilyisFamilia.com

When trying to please the palate with delicious food, we like to eat a variety of food. With a teen who’s a picky eater, eating at a new restaurant is sort of hard. He’s stuck in a boring burgers and pizza phase.  We were invited to try out Luna Grill at the Irvine Spectrum and although my husband and I were excited to try it out, I have to admit, I was a little worried about my kids. Luna Grill {Read More}

Using Netflix to Fuel the Love for Science!

Using Netflix to Fuel the Love for Science!

Do you have a budding scientist at home?  I currently have my two sons trying to conquer high school science and elementary science.  They both have had a liking for this subject in school, but it seems to lose steam as they enter the technical terms and leave behind the cool experiments and labs.  Does this happen to you too?  We are big reality show watchers. Cool, educational reality shows. Anything to get my kids’ mind working and thinking about {Read More}

Hosting a Disney Side Home Celebration, Familia Style!

Hosting a DisneySide Party- FamilyisFamilia.com

Living just a few short miles from the Disneyland Resort, it’s hard not to show off our #DisneySide. We see merchandise at the stores, products in the supermarkets, and sneak peeks of the parks as we drive by either on the 5 or 57 freeways. Living in Orange County, Disney consumes my mind, a whole lot of times. When I was selected to host a Disney Side @Home Celebration, I was thrilled!  In the past, I’ve had no problem showing {Read More}

I’ve slowly been noticing that my eyesight seems to be getting a littler more duller with each passing year that I blog. I’ve nonchalantly been passing by the “eye wear”  display and every single time I happen to glance at the frames, I cringe at the lifestyle {Read More}
