It’s our day to shine and be pampered, but let’s be realistic it doesn’t always seem to work out that way so http://www.redtri.com is sharing their ideas of how you can spend a great Mother’s Day.
If you or your mom need some help in the home design department, we have a fun activity that will inspire you both. Tour the Pasadena Showcase House. The entire estate (pictured), from the front yard to the garage, is carefully styled and design by an interior design team. Rich, luxurious, and entirely beautiful, the showcase house is a fabulous way to spend the day (or evening!) in someone else’s home, where marveling with your mouth open is entirely appropriate. Tickets purchased in advance start at $30 and proceeds from your tickets support the LA Philharmonic, Walt Disney Concert Hall and local symphonic, cultural and educational programs for youth since 1948.

The tween/father relationship is one of the most important in a female life. At this age in particular, young girls are setting the tone for their future. When a girl grows up with the love and support of her dad, she will undoubtedly emulate this relationship with the men in her future and have higher expectations and standards for all relationships.
Let’s be honest, kids repeat what they know. Coming from a loving environment creates a sense of confidence and self esteem for a tween and that is the basis of ALL of her future relationships. In addition, it will largely determine how she relates to guys later on. (more…)

April 22 is Earth Day. What will you do to celebrate our planet? With so many options out there, what will you choose? I’d like to share a few of my favorites that teach our children and show that we can make a difference. With snowfall last month in the San Fernando Valley for the first time in nearly fifty years, major earthquakes in Christchurch, New Zealand, Santiago, Chile and Haiti in the last year, and other environmental issues like the enormous volcanic eruption of Iceland, science is everywhere and a part of everything; it just depends what lens you use to look through.
