Dine Downtown // Ten22

Prix fixe scares me… I am a lover of food with a slightly picky palette. I think that accurately describes me. Dine Downtown has been happening in Sacramento for a while now, 12 years according to the website, and I’ve always thought about it. But that was it, just thought

A Christmas Adventure – The San Diego Zoo

Always say yes to adventures… …especially when they involve anything in San Diego! If you read yesterday’s post, then you already know our Christmas adventure found us in San Diego! Well, if you know anything about San Diego, most people know it’s the home of an awesome Zoo and Safari

The New Tradition: A Christmas Adventure

What do you get a kid who has pretty much everything? Okay, none of us are rich (by any means), but the kid literally has most everything she wants or needs. She still has presents that haven’t been opened from her birthday four months ago. I don’t think she needs

Ganeeban Runs Shamrock'n – Week 3

Steppin’ my game up, a bit… Not perfect, but putting in a little more effort and dedication this week. It’s really nice that J is also starting to get into training, so we have each other to motivate one another. But he’s also killin’ it at me, so maybe it

Race Recap: California International Marathon – Relay 2015

Same name, different team. Obsessed with this sign this year. I think the California International Marathon is magical. I may be slightly biased because it resides in my backyard, but nonetheless, there is something that it does to this city, year after year. If you aren’t pissed that you cannot


Best wedding hashtag. Ever. I might be slightly biased, but I’ve been swooning over their wedding hashtag in preparation of their big day.  My youngest cousin, of the oldest cousins, got married this past weekend. Did you follow that? My aunts youngest son, Micah, married the love of his life,
