I’m sure you’ve heard by now that the longest LEGO® STAR WARS™ Miniland model ever built was just unveiled last week at LEGOLAND® California.   LEGOLAND® bloggers got a sneak peek at the media preview a couple of weeks ago.  My sister and I brought the kids to partake in the fun!

Sarah Michelle-Gellar, best known for Buffy the Vampire Slayer but is currently the voice of Seventh Sister in Star Wars Rebels, was on hand to help the young guests “power up” the display with their light sabers!

Legoland The Force Awakens Food 2017

Have I mentioned my love for themed food?  There was plenty of snacks on hand to feed the young Padawans!

I think Mei-Lin and Dominic had fun, don’t you?

Brandi Williams KUSI Legoland 2017

KUSI’s Brandi Williams was on hand to interview Julie Estrada, Media Contact at LEGOLAND®

We then got to meet Brandi and she was so sweet!  She took pictures with us and let the kids hold her KUSI microphone!

Imagine my surprise to see myself and the kids as part of the media kit that went out to everyone after the preview night!

Happy Halloween 2012!


I just wanted to wish all of you and your loved ones a very Happy Halloween!  We took Dominic to The Pumpkin Station at Plaza Bonita Mall to begin the festivities.  This was our first time bringing him to a pumpkin patch, and he had a lot of fun.  I can’t believe that he’s already at that age where he can practically manage on his own.  He even played a game and won a prize, without our help.  My, how time flies!

Dominic holding a blue snake, which he won in a ball toss game (no help from Mommy or Daddy!)

Dominic also decided that he wanted to be another superhero this year, and his crime fighter of choice was Batman.  My husband, Deon, will be The Joker and I will be Catwoman (we try to select a theme when possible).  I promise I will post pictures of us all in an upcoming post.  Have a safe night!

(The bonus picture below is from 2009 when we dressed Dominic up as a Wookie.  As you can see, he wasn’t too keen on being one at the time.  Now when we show it to him, he loves that we dressed him up as someone from Star Wars.) 

May The 4th Be With You

Before the day ends, I thought I would dedicate a quick post to all of my geek friends. 

Happy Star Wars Day!
