Knott’s Berry Farm Summer #Sponsored

Knott’s Berry Farm Summer has begun. My family and I will be exploring and enjoying the newly revamped Camp Snoopy, including 3 NEW RIDES! We will also be celebrating a Knott’s classic– the Calico Mine Co. Ride has gotten a facelift that we’re dying to show off and share with you. Summer at Knott’s means new summer shows! Snoopy fans of all ages will love watching the exciting new ice show, Snoopy…Unleashed!  We’ll also be checking out Boomtown, a spectacular display of acrobatics meets Gold Rush.

I can’t wait to see the facelift that the Calico Mine Co. revamped so as to not spoil any surprises, I will post photos later on of my Knott’s Berry Farm Summer visit.

Calico Mine Ride Logo

The Calico Mine Co. Ride, was Knott’s Berry Farms first major ride in Ghost Town, and it opened more than 20 years before I was born in November 1960. The dark and dangerous journey will take you to underground lakes, waterfalls, caverns filled with thousands of mysterious formations, chambers filled with steaming, bubbling pots and geysers. “At several points in the trip, riders find themselves along the rim of a sixty five foot deep and ninety foot wide scene filled with dozens of animated miners trying to strike it rich.”

Sneak Peak of the Revamp, but that’s it until the event. :)

Snoopy…Unleashed! – Charles. M. Schulz Theatre










Don’t forget about Snoopy on Ice. There are no shows on Wednesday but you can see Snoopy on Ice June 14 – August 24th.

Boom Town – Calico Square

 If you don’t love acrobats you’re probably just plain out odd. Where the Wild West at the peak of the Gold Rush meets Cirque. A cast of incredible acrobats show us what it was like to live in a small, gold-rich town of Calico during the 1860’s. You’ll be inspired to pick up your picks and pans, hop in an ore cart and come along for the ride!  You can catch them during the same time frame as Snoopy on Ice but, No Mondays or Tuesdays.

Charlie Brown’s Happy Campers – Camp Snoopy Theatre

Join Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy and the world’s most popular Beagle, Snoopy in a show that’s sure to make an outdoors man out of anybody!

Daily, June 14 through September 1


You should come and join us as well.






These are just a few of the things I’m excited about along with the new rides in Camp Snoopy. I will share details throughout my day with my family. I can’t wait. Knott’s Berry Summer is sure to be great.

Outdoor Oasis #Pier1OutdoorParty #Sponsored #MC

“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Pier 1 Imports. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and to thank me for participating.”

Several guest attended my Outdoor Oasis #Pier1OutdoorParty #Sponsored #MC event. The weather was sunny and warm in California. We went with a Spanish Fiesta type flair. When I say we, I mean my boss did. She’s a genius when it comes to hosting parties and the pool and patio couldn’t have been more a more gorgeous location. Pier 1 Imports enhanced the gorgeous location.


The 2014 Pier 1 Outdoor Summer Decorating Trends from Living Alfresco with pretty neutrals and subdued patterns or Coastal Views with oceanic blues and glorious greens to the summer brights with vivid colors and trendy styles that we went with are all easily available from Pier 1 Imports. You can purchase them online, ship to home, ship to store, or in home delivery make it easy for you to entertain guests comfortably, affordably and stylishly. The outdoor decor will be enjoyed year round.

The above 3 piece Neely Bistro Table & Chairs set would go perfect with my theme at an affordable $299.95. What is great about the pieces selected is that it is great for a romantic meal for two or to incorporate the entire family.  I’m all about mixing and matching to personalize a space. I think that Michelle did a wonderful job doing just that.


The decor rocks the space with an easy, fun and vibrant appeal. The fresh pops of color make summer parties even brighter. Even if you’re not hosting a special get together this summer, it’s always the right and southern thing to do to bring a little something as a thank you to your host.

All of the products in the photo are available at your local Pier 1 Imports or online minus the food, drinks and adorable little girl. Those aren’t for sale. :) If you’re like me feel free to stop by and see it, touch it, and feel for yourself the quality and convenience of all Pier 1 Imports items. You can browse online and have it shipped to the store or your home if you like. Even better if you order furniture they have in-home delivery available within one to three weeks.


Honestly you couldn’t beat the weather.


Or the view.


The food and drinks were clearly amazing and who doesn’t love adorable umbrella straws?

I’m ready for another drink?


How about you?


With the Spanish Fiesta decorations we didn’t need people to do the talking. We served Spanish food with drinks because with this Spanish Fiesta type decorations all I could think about was tacos, tortilla chips and margaritas. No the child is not drinking margaritas. LOL

So stop by and hurry up with your Pier 1 Imports Outdoor Collection ideas. You might be having your own “Outdoor Oasis” party soon. Contest has ended. Winner has been notified and chosen.
