Spring Has Sprung at Stacked: Food Well Built | @FoodWellBuilt #foodwellbuilt #foodie

You may have guessed by now, we LOVE Stacked!  We have enjoyed being invited to try their new seasonal menus and taste the latest and greatest items.  What makes Stacked so great?  Honestly, while the food is wonderful, I love the people that work there!  

The customer service at Stacked has been exemplary every time.  At every location I have tried, the staff has given their own personal favorites to try.  A manager has often walked the floor to get feedback to see how they could improve on our experience and the personal touch has never been lost on me.

My latest lunch date with my hubby was no different.  I had ironically dropped off my daughters last Girl Scout Cookie boxes to a friend when we decided to meet up for lunch.  The first thing that caught my eye when I walked in the Huntington Beach location was a Thin Mint Cookie Shake.  It was meant to be.

Dana Point Festival of Whales: Top 5 Events This Weekend | @FestivalofWhales

Have you heard? The Dana Point Festival of Whales is the next two weekends! March 5th, 6th, 12th and 13th, there will be amazing and fun activities for the whole family! 

Southern California’s summer tourists may have come and gone, but this winter a different type of tourist will be traveling along the West Coast and heading to Baja during its annual migration: the majestic California Gray Whale. The whales will begin their migration in late November, but from March 5 – 6 and 12 – 13 hundreds of these 35-ton leviathans will splash through the seaside community of Dana Point, California – the West Coast’s premier location to meet and greet these incredible creatures during the 45th Annual Dana Point Festival of Whales.

With so much fun packed into these two weekends, my top choices for heading down there THIS weekend are these Top 5 Events!


Have your kids dress up as pirates and enter the Diamond Dig!  What is the Diamond Dig?  From 11:30-1PM on March 6th, you and your children can dig for buried treasure at Baby Beach!  There is even a pair of real Diamond Earrings donated by Marinelli Fine Jewelry!  This event is $10 per person and they recommend you get there by 11:30.

Sponsored by the Monarch Beach Sunrise Rotary Club – all proceeds benefit local children’s charities. For more information call: Alan Wickstrom 949-842-0594 or go online:
