Central Coast Weekend Living

What a fun and FULL weekend! Started on Friday as soon as I left my morning job. Got some Arbonne time in at Scout (favorite coffee shop in SLO) with Paige (From Healthy Hits the Spot-check out her blog)
Friday night we joined 7 other ladies at Guispees in Pismo Beach for a ladies night out and some YUMMY food. I LOVE Italian food! I ordered the butternut squash ravioli…um delicious isn’t even the word! Fresh baked bread with a cheesy garlic spread!! It was heavenly!

Here’s my food and our group of ladies !

Saturday morning I went on a trail ride through the vineyards in Santa Ynez! BEAUTIFUL! Didn’t get photos of our ride but a few before.

I rode Nick a 6 year old quarter horse with a heart of gold and an easy going personality.

Saturday evening I went to Paige’s for a fun movie night  (We saw The Best of Me a Nicholas Sparks movie) she made us homemade popcorn  (um AMAZING) and there was wine and fruit. Lots of laughs and tears because who doesn’t cry at least once during a Nicholas Sparks movie?!
Sunday was a quiet day finally. I hiked with my hiking buddy Julie and her dog Rocky in the morning. It was SO HOT, but we we got out there and did it!

We are having strange weather here lately, but it makes for beautiful sky’s!

Amazing and breath taking!

Would love to hear about your weekend! What did you eat? Where did you go?

Succulents, Hikes, & Good Eats

What a wonderful, full, creative, & active weekend!
Friday night Andrew and I went to one of our favorites, Olive Garden, & shared the yummy Tour of Italy. Sharing is good for the wallet and the waistline 😛

This is HALF and I wasn’t able to finish it all!
I then skipped off to my first solo flight to Home Depot! I’ve had some creative ideas in mind but not the time or finances to put into them.

My goods!

The end result! Thinking I will get another one but for the week this looks awesome and saves space!
Saturday morning I went hiking with some girls I met on meetup.com. We hiked the Lemon Grove trail on Modonna Mountian. Two of the ladies were familiar faces  (My sweet friend Paige from Healthy Hits the Spot and fun Nina and her dog Macy) & 3 new faces! LOVE meeting new people.

We made it to the top 🙂

Saturday night we had a yummy BBQ at Andrew’s Mum’s. (Its an English thing; -))

image

Potato salad, pork and ranch style beans and iced tea (anotherone of my obsessions)
Sunday morning brought protein shakes and more hiking for me!

image

After grocery shopping and another Home Depot trip it was time for a hearty lunch of chicken tamales from Trader Joe’s and some quite reading time.

I ended my day re-potting plants and settingup my little succulent area on my back patio

image

In LOVE with this peice of furniture my friend Traci gave me! Andrew is not a fan, but my plants love it and I love it so that’s all that matters 😛

Hope you had a fun filled weekend with lots of family time and good grub. Today, Monday, is a regular work day for me with a fun coffee date planned with a friend this afternoon!
What did your weekend look like?

Goal Digger

Happy Friday!! Goals and list have always kept me on task and focused, now even more than ever. I set daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly goals for my business and I am learning to do this for all areas of my life. When I plan and stick with a plan I dont fail!

With each Monday and each month and each season I feel like we get new starts. September marks the start of the autumn/fall season. A time of reflection and anticipation and preparation for the winter ahead. Now here on the central coast of CA we don’t get winter per-say but you can still feel change and growth in the air.

My goals for September are 1)To keep promises I make to myself as I was beginning to loose credibility with myself. 2)Do one task at a time. ie When I am eating I am not also on my phone, when I am writing I dont have a bunch of tabs open on my computer. When I am spending time with Andrew I am not constantly checking my phone. (notice a technology theme 😦 3) Less time on social media! 4)More adventures with friends and family. Starting this weekend I am going to hike Modonna with a group of girls on Saturday and Sunday Andrew and I are going with friends to Monto de Oro!

Would love to hear some of your goals and resolutions for this fall!
