    Musings: Swooning over the CA State Fair

    Another year, another CA State Fair!   Just living my best life possible, one fried thing at a time! I can’t really say much that I haven’t already said over the last few years: 2016, 2015, 2014, and another 2014. But what I can do, is share my mostly food adventures from my two visits from this year! I really love their hashtag this year, #LiveInTheMoment! Don’t we all need to do that. It really should be something we strive for, especially since all of our gadgets (re: screen time) are so prevalent these days! On our first visit, we went on a weekday afternoon with L, J’s Mom, his aunt, J, and myself. The…

    Musings: Once A Californian Year

    The CA State Fair is so misunderstood… …like a solemn teenager. Maybe it’s because I’m born and raised Sacramentan OR maybe it’s because I love fried food, rides, animals, and everything California. Whatever the reason, I make it my summer goal to never miss a fair! Faux curly hair for the occasion! I’ll never understand those people who live in Sacramento for multiple years and have never been to or chose not to go to to the California State Fair! Sure it’s hot, sure it costs some bread, sure there’s lots of people. Sure to all of that, but in turn…that’s what makes it great! Here are a few posts…

    You’re One In A Melon [Watermelon Themed Party]

    Baller-on-a-budget, kids themed party status! To say we were on a tight budget, is an understatement. All our traveling bills came at once and so did a rapidly approaching birthday party! But you make do, because that’s how life goes. In our house, watermelon goes by the name of sandia (watermelon in Spanish), so it unofficially became the ‘sandia party’ in our everyday lives and discussions! I know I love to say how much I detest Pinterest, but it really came in handy this time around. All I had to to was type “watermelon + themed + party” and I really didn’t have to do much from there. Well, besides…

    WIAW: The Lil's Bday Edition

    Your Lil only turns 28 once… Thanks, Jenn! …so she deserves a dedicated post to what we ate in honor of her last Thursday for her big day! She’s a very low key person, but she does like to eat big and fancy. However, this year, she toned it down and picked a place that offered her a free appetizer, entree, and dessert. 28 going on 80 with her desire to get a free meal. The other funny bit, is this is the exact same place she had her birthday last year, except we partook in the endless brunch versus dinner. I’ll share my somewhat mundane breaky and lunch, but…

    WIAW – That good, good!

    Goodness that I found on my iPhone… Thanks, Jenn! I didn’t pick a day or even have one to use for a typical WIAW post, so I thought I’d brag about some delicious food I’ve eaten in the last week or so (and pics that haven’t been posted on the blog already). Also, I thought I’d share what a non-food-planner buys when they are conveniently at Whole Foods. My work has new hire meet and greets donut parties and I love them. If they didn’t serve donuts, I’m not sure how many people would show up. Someone always tries to save me my beloved maple bar, this time was no…
