Holiday Shopping at River Oaks Shopping Center

Holiday shopping can be a little crazy but it’s so much fun when you can take the entire family along. That’s exactly what we did and it made a world of difference. I’m happy to be partnering with River Oaks Shopping Center to show you all there is to experience in this wonderful shopping area.

We started off at The Mad Potter to pick out and glaze some cool pottery pieces. Grant was so excited to pick his piece (An Elf), and choose all of his own colors. What I love even more is that it is definitely NOT just for kids. My husband and I joined in on the fun and Grant was so interested in what mommy and daddy were painting too. There were beautiful moments of silence while we were all painting. As a teacher and mom of a toddler, I value those precious peaceful moments.

After we wrapped up our painting session, we headed over to California Pizza Kitchen for some delicious pizza. Grant and Mike went safe with a cheese and pepperoni pizza. I took a leap of faith and tried a brussel sprout and bacon flat bread and I was NOT disappointed at all. It was so fresh and light that I could have eaten three more. Ha ha! The great thing about CPK is that they have a guarantee that if you try something new and you’re not satisfied, they’ll replace the item for you happily. How sweet is that?!?

We  took a spin by Steinway Piano and enjoyed looking  at and listening to their amazing pianos before indulging in some more shopping. We headed home for nap time to keep the tantrums away but boy did we have a full day. The best thing about it is that everything we needed was just moments away.

Take your crew for a family fun day at River Oaks Shopping Center and make a day of it. It’s truly your one-stop-shop for everything holiday this season. Enjoy!
