Copper Mountain Ski Trip

Over the Christmas break, I headed out east to Copper to meet the boy’s family and for a quick ski trip. After picking me up super late at night, we trekked back through the mountains in the middle of what felt like a blizzard. This was the point where I was supposed to keep him up for the long two hour drive with my lively chatter but after about an hour of just staring out the window into whiteness, I promptly fell asleep. And was…

New Year’s Resolutions

Travel image

Admittedly, it’s been a while since blogging so I’m making a New Year’s resolution to blog at least once a week something big or small. We’ll see how this little experiment goes… I like the promise of new years resolutions to do more, try something different or just make an effort to be a better you. The good thing about this year is it’s going to be filled with a lot of adventures to Thailand, San Francisco and many more! Some of my other resolutions…

Mt.Baldy Hike

Me and the boy set out for the weekend to Mount Baldy, determined to leave all our worries behind. Lady Pup enjoyed it immensely. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her so happy! She was an excellent little trail dog and spent a lot of time chasing squirrels and sniffing around. Meanwhile me and the boy were discussing the negatives and positives of buying a fan so late in the season. Boy: I sweat every night at your place. You need to get a fan.…

Malibu Wine Safari

Malibu Wine Farm

Malibu Wine Safari When the event of my birthday came rolling around, I knew I wanted to do something different and not-standard of the typical birthday going out activities. I opted for something a little more personal and intimate with just a few close family members and the boy, in hopes that it would make me forget the slow, dawning realization that I was getting older. And likely have wrinkles the day after. We set out for Malibu to Paradise Beach Cove Cafe for an…

Catalina Island

Catalina Island

  It’s difficult to mention a day at Catalina without saying, “It’s the f&ck*ng Catalina Wine Mixer!” And while there was no Will Ferrell singing Josh Groban tunes or even a wine mixer, the day was still filled with plenty of good things. A good majority followed by one of us in the group saying, “It’s the Catalina Wine Mixer!” just for good effect. For those who don’t know the reference, I strongly recommend you watch Step Brothers right this instant and thank me later. The…

Bedroom Decor

  In lieu of doing a typical blog post, I’ve snapped a few pics of my bedroom decor as simple decorating ideas for the bedroom.   On a side note, Miss. Lady Dog, doesn’t always usually look this tired.                                                                            Alright, back to bed it is for now. I think she truly…

Griffith Observatory Hike

Griffifth Observatory Hike On our second day of me and the boy’s staycation, we went and did the Griffith Observatory Hike. But aside from that, we mostly just ate. Like, a lot. We went for bottomless mimosasfor brunch, we had burgers for lunch AND we had a full picnic basket to take with us laterthat evening. Our waistlines grew by inches on this one weekend. But it was all so delicious. We started out at breakfast at Eat This Cafe . The food was perfect, simple,…

Santa Monica Day Trip

Santa Monica Day Trip So when me and the boy heard about everyone’s Memorial Weekend plans, we grew a little envious.  Friends were going wine tasting in Napa and beer tastings in Pismo Beach. Another couple was headed to the Hamptons for the long weekend. And we had effectively planned absolutely nothing. But determined to not waste a perfectly good long weekend, we planned a quick-mini staycation and set our sights on Los Angeles! The boy’s not native to California so it gave us both…

Granville Island Public Market

The second day we were in Vancouver, we made our way to Stanley Park and Granville Island. These were by far, my favorite spots and it was so great to walk around and get to see a little bit more the city.  Vancouver doesn’t feel too exotic or different to the American traveler but its’ parks and markets were no less pleasing. Stanley Park is 1,000 acres large and feels more like a small forest than an urban park. Complete with totem poles too! So, there…

Capilano Suspension Bridge

So a while ago I took a weekend trip up to Vancouver to explore some Canadian terrain and for a quick mini adventure. Regrettably, it’s taken me way too long to actually get these pictures up on the blog. Life’s gotten a little too hectic lately but looking back at these pictures has made me seriously itch for another trip or at least a camping getaway to detox and breathe. Who’s with me? Our first day out in Vancouver we ventured to the Capilano Suspension…
