    WIAW – The CA State Fair

    Once a year I get to not give a crap and eat ALL the damn fried food I can find… Thanks, Jenn! If you’re lucky enough to host your state fair in your city, then you know what I’m talking about. I absolutely love everything about the California state fair and I go every year…I’m pretty sure I haven’t missed a year in my 31 years of existence. As a baby, maybe, but I pretend that I didn’t. I even worked at the fair for about 3 summers. The excruciating hot weather is unbearable, but the camaraderie with the fellow high school/college students and availability of fried food every day…

    WIAW – The Spectrum of Eats

    From “I’ll never post that food pic on IG” to “I need that in my life right now” pic! Thanks, Jenn! You can take your fancy food pics and shove them up… I’m really not bitter or anything…I promise 😉 I’ve noticed that when I eat out and snap pics, my meals look a thousand times better. When I try to concentrate on eating healthier and make/pack my meals….they look….well, how shall I say this politely…ugly!  There’s absolutely nothing fancy about what I ate yesterday, with the exception of dinner for the Bestest’s birthday. Again, that was a meal consumed at a restaurant (or two), so of course it looks…

    ‘eeeeef Friday

    It’s Friday. Its Fabulous. Five Fabulous “F” things going on in my life… First: Went to my first Yelp Elite event this week (Wednesday). Not only was it my first event for 2014, but it was also my first time going to an event solo. Usually I drag the bestest along or I just don’t go. But, I thought I need to be more social and active within the Yelp community, so I went to the YEE solo. To be honest, I assumed my good family friend would be there, but he ended up not being able to make it. His dad was there, so at least I actually knew…

    ‘eeeeef Friday

    It’s Friday. Its Fabulous. Five Fabulous “F” things going on in my life… Fest : BACONfest commenced this week! As hard as it is to believe, I think this is the first one that I’ve participated in. Last year’s was a little chaotic, so I didn’t partake. But this year, we made sure we got in on the action. I goes until Saturday and it’s amazing. From libations to dessert, and everything in between, local restaurants show their bacon-savvy skills. My IG feed has been filled with bacon-everything. So when Hook & Ladder posted ice cubes w/ strips of delicious bacon in them, we had to taste whatever those were…

    The Magical Word

    So, if you are like me at all, you may be inclined to do a little research before you try something new. Don’t get ahead of yourself, when I say a little, I really mean minimal, research. So, yes I did read a few articles on online dating. All I came out with was these same few tips: 1. Add a picture. 2. Create a fun username 3. Don’t be generic or typical Easy enough right? #1, boom, done! Then came #2, username – you don’t want to scare them away with things such as “tomboy” (no ridicule to my blog namesake), and you better not put your whole name as…
