An Afternoon in Manhattan Beach

Dress information here and below. It has only been a year that I have been California resident. My husband and I have been busy exploring the Bay Area and I keep hearing of new places I should visit. Our calendar is certainly full! While I am keeping a list of 101 things to do in northern […]

Exploring Newport Harbor by Duffy

One of my favorite ways to explore Newport Harbor is by Duffy. Taking a leisurely evening cruise out on the calm waters is the perfect way to end your day in Newport Beach, California. The Duffy boat is an electric cruiser, which means is it quiet and fairly easy to operate. The boat is ideal for […]

West Coast Baby Shower & Labor Day Weekend

As we get closer to the baby’s due date, my list of things to do is getting longer. The nursery needs to be completed and we still need to purchase essential supplies as well as wash the baby blankets and clothes. In the next few weeks, we will take the hospital tour, learn Baby CPR, […]

Labor Day Party Inspiration

      Click on pictures for image link.   We are heading to Newport Beach to celebrate Labor Day, the unofficial end of summer. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend the weekend. We will be with our family and some good friends, and I hear the weather looks perfect. I also […]

Our Weekend

Happy Friday! We are planning a date night and I know exactly what I am wearing! A beautiful black wrap dress with cute heels and my favorite earrings. My husband and I are very aware our days as a party of two are limited and we are trying to make it out for some adult […]

Gilroy Garlic Festival

When you live less than 30 minutes from Gilroy, a town known for garlic, one must venture to the annual Gilroy Garlic Festival. If you enjoy garlic, this is the festival for you! We enjoyed a variety of foods and walked around for about 2.5 hours. I would highly recommend you get there when the […]

National Daiquiri Day

Happy Friday! Time for my monthly public service announcement. This Saturday, July 19 is National Daiquiri Day!! I think the daiquiri, while full of calories, is still a quintessential summer drink. They are refreshing, light, colorful, and oh-so-festive with fruit on top or an umbrella. I might get a little crazy and partake in a […]

Reason #20001 I Love California

Look at this divine Crimson Quinoa Salad from Calafia Cafe in Palo Alto. This plate is art and I didn’t even want to dig it because of the beauty of the dish. I love eating healthy, colorful, fresh, and local vegetables! You just feel so good after a salad like this one. The salad was […]

Lazy Afternoon

My belly is really growing. Over the last three weeks, I have felt my stomach stretching and my baby bump is much more full. It was clearly time to invest in a few more maternity pieces, as I enter the end of my second trimester. I needed an outfit that I could run errands in, […]
