Kim

Kimberly Michelle is a 30-something mother/wife/girl that yearns for making everything extraordinary. If she were a super-person, she'd want to be a combination of Kate Spade, John Wooden, Martha Stewart, Walt Disney and Wolfgang Puck. She'd have her own theme park with a wood-burning oven where everyone played basketball AND enjoyed craft time and would look like a modern day Jackie O every day of the week. On this blog, she shares the exploits of her immediate family: Mr. M (my amazing husband), Miss L (also known as Baby M through year 1), and Memphis (our boston terrier) and Lincoln (the Bernese Mountain Dog). She bleeds blue and gold for her UCLA Bruins, and really only celebrate 3 seasons: football, basketball and “no football/basketball.

a farmer and her dog

A few weeks ago, Farmer L got impatient with her sprouts in the garden and decided to pull up her first carrot of the season. She proudly came in the house and showed it off to everyone and agreed to a photo-op with her crop. It was then quickly hijacked by Lincoln, the epic...

abridged and illustrated book bargains for kids

A couple months ago, Mr. M purchased “Treasure Island” for Miss L’s library. It was our family’s first attempt at reading some of these abridged & illustrated classics, and she ate up the story day after day like a sponge! She loved hearing what Jim was up to next and what was happening with...

the bargain of Disney’s PhotoPass+ at Disneyland

On Miss L’s most recent trip to Disneyland, I sent a present along with her: Disney’s PhotoPass+ card. On recent trips she’d wanted to take photos with every character she met, so I thought that she’d definitely get some use out of it on a trip with Grandma & Papa L. If you purchase...

girl scout cookie candy bar goodness

While our camping adventures continue throughout the summer, I’m sad that Miss L isn’t quite old enough yet to experience another summer tradition: summer camp! Mr. M and I both have fond memories of overnight camp adventures and what a wonderful right of passage it was as a kid! I can especially remember how great...

watermelon burgers

Have you ever heard of a watermelon burger? Neither had I until it was time to start grilling for our 4th of July BBQ. Mr. M had arranged to make “Cafe Salle Pleyel” burgers for the festivities, but I opted out because I’m not a caper not cornichon fan. So he replied, “OK, I’ll...

my extraordinary kid

Over the past four years of motherhood, I’ve realized something that’s pretty remarkable. Miss L is an extraordinary kid. And we’re not talking about her getting a PhD at age 5 extraordinary, but in that every day way that is so special. Her face lights up with the light of the world when she’s...

Mapping the Disney Family of Wines in Northern California

Most people think of Southern California as the mecca of all things Disney, but Northern California has it’s share as well. There may not be any big amusement parks, but we do have Disney wine! Yes, you may not have known that there are many wineries in Northern California associated with the Disney family…. The...

camping in Yosemite for the first time

“Yosemite Park is a place of rest, a refuge from the roar and dust and weary, nervous, wasting work of the lowlands, in which one gains the advantages of both solitude and society. Nowhere will you find more company of a soothing peace-be-still kind. Your animal fellow beings, so seldom regarded in civilization, and...

Great American Backyard Campout 2014

Great American Backyard Campout 2014

We’re most definitely a camping kind of family. Mr. M sometimes thinks that I’m not very outdoorsy, but I think that opinion goes away every time I outlast him on complaining about a lack of showers or worrying about bears at night. But did you know that we hadn’t introduced Miss L to the...
