Spaghetti Dinner at Preschool

Last Wednesday was our first Spaghetti dinner for families, hosted by my child’s preschool in Harveston Community. It was so fun, delicious, and well-organized! They even “seated” us at a table. How cute is that?!

What I like about this school is that it is located within Harveston so it’s walking distance, it is a very nice facility, and the staff does an amazing job! We are quite excited that we’ll be in that school and that the holidays are approaching!

Temecula Community Recreation Center (CRC)

Last night we started the first day of swim team for my girl. We go to Harveston Community’s pool all the time but we had never been to the Temecula Community Recreation Center (CRC) before. I was impressed! The center itself was in a nestled in a nice setting and the pool area was terrific, as you can see. What you can’t see is that they even have a water slide! Now I have not ever seen that in a CRC before and I’ve lived in several states! Stay tuned for when I go INSIDE the CRC!

Pechanga Resort & Casino

As if living in Harveston Community wasn’t already great, guess what’s close by! Yes – Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula! My aunt was in town with her friends so the kids and I met her for dinner at the food court. It is a very delicious food court, btw!

If you want to get away but can’t get away too far, this is the perfect place to go. The first time I had been to Pechanga, I was very impressed. It is a nice casino. (This is coming from someone who loooves Las Vegas.) The interior is elegant and the customer service is excellent. Pechanga is also known for its entertainment and they do have an impressive lineup. In fact, I just missed Lady Antebellum! Alan Jackson is currently sold out and Diana Ross is playing on September 11th!


“A vast 200,000+ square foot gaming floor makes Pechanga California’s biggest casino. A multitude of AAA 4-Diamond amenities and services make Pechanga California’s best!

Designed with player comfort in mind, the casino is equipped with a state-of-the-art air filtration system and offers extensive non-smoking areas. The casino’s well-planned layout allows guests to move easily among more than 3000+ state-of-the art slot and video machines and over 130+ table games including Blackjack, Three-Card Poker, Let it Ride, Mini Baccarat, Ultimate Texas Hold ‘Em, Mystery Card Roulette, Buster Blackjack, EZ Baccarat, Fortune Pai Gow Poker, and Pechanga Craps. Those who enjoy high stakes wagering will appreciate the amenities and features of the elegantly appointed High Limit Gaming Area complete with an appealing lounge and exclusive cash cage. The separate 54-table Pechanga Poker Room is located on the second floor of the casino, easily accessible by escalator, elevator or stairs. Knowledgeable, courteous dealers and floor staff provide gaming action 24 hours a day, year-round.”


“Designed in a style reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright, the architecture of Pechanga Resort & Casino reflects a casual elegance embracing nature and infused with Native American art and culture. Earning the AAA Four Diamond rating award annually since opening in 2002, Pechanga’s status as a recipient of that coveted award evidenced throughout in amenities and service.

The magnificent 1200 permanent-seat Pechanga Theater puts the audience ‘up close and personal’ for headliner acts and concerts. There’s also great entertainment at Pechanga’s Cabaret Lounge, The Eagle’s Nest and The Comedy Club at Pechanga.”

New Home Construction in Harveston Community, Temecula!

Except for purses and a few other things, there’s nothing I love more than model homes! It’s like Disneyland for me!

Richmond American Homes is building MORE homes in Harveston Community. That is good news all around! The floor plans make sense, the homes are wonderful for families or couples starting out, not to mention the Harveston Community is a terrific place to live!

Is your imagination on fire yet?!!

Shopping in Temecula – The Promenade

We are back to school here in Harveston Community so we are officially school-centric!

One of the biggest gripes for me as a parent is how heavy my child’s backpack is- What do they put in there?! Well today, we went on the hunt for a backpack with wheels. Couldn’t find one at the Target store in Temecula so went to The Promenade to see what’s happening there. Sure enough, after a little searching, we found just what we needed! Love that about The Promenade in Temecula!

Take a look at the other store they have available. I just saw the space where H&M will be opening a location. So glad to discover this because the nearest one I know of is in Los Angeles at The Americana. More shopping, ladies!

Cool it!

If you’re looking for a fun and yummy place to take the kids for a treat, I’ve got the place for you! Our favorite frozen yogurt shop is the self-serve Yogurt Factory. They have an array of delicious, low-fat/no-fat flavors like cake batter, peanut butter, mango and OF COURSE, toppings like cookie dough, fresh fruit, and sprinkles! (Kids go crazy over sprinkles, don’t they? Maybe they’re onto something!)

Yogurt Island is located on Winchester and Nichols Rd in the LA Fitness plaza!

Back to School

School started already for us in Harveston. My girl rode her bike and I pushed my son in the jogger behind her. The great thing to see was all the parents and kids in full force and making their way. There’s definitely excitement in the air!

This is a pic I took on our walk. It’s one of my favorite homes in Harveston. As you can see, the exterior is very inviting!
