Drastic Savings on Room Makeovers

I LOVE this time of year because stores are loading their shelves with plenty of new inventory to outfit college students who need to put together their dorm rooms. What does this mean for you?  Whether you have a kid going away to college or not, it's a fantastic time to give a room in your house a makeover, especially the bedrooms. You will not find lower prices all year long on bedding, lamps, chairs, drawers, futons, etc.  Target is a great place to find the best savings and selection.

Mary Poppins at Moonlight Amphitheatre through August 2nd

Mary Poppins will soon be flying into Vista and onto the Moonlight stage! The Disney film, cherished by generations has been carefully reimagined into a spectacular new musical with a book by Downton Abbey's Julian Fellowes. It will feature all of your favorite songs from the movie plus brand-new musical numbers with spectacular effects.   Mary Poppins takes both children and adults alike on a magical musical adventure where "anything can happen if you let it." Mary Poppins has amassed more than 40 theatre awards from around the globe. The whole family will be delighted!  Rated PG.
