This past weekend, we headed to the beautiful Kern River area and set up tent at a campsite right next to the water. We went water rafting. We got thrown off our raft after we hit a rock and went down this rapid on my back. Ouch! It wouldn’t be camping without making any smores. […]

I can’t believe that after yesterday, the year is halfway over. We are at the mid-way point of 2011. Time is sure flying. How is everyone doing with their goals for this year? I can’t believe that yesterday also marks one month from when we got married. It feels just like yesterday. We don’t have […]

Happy first day of April to everyone! I’m excited that it’s April because it’s my birthday month 🙂 It is hot, hot, hot in here. Yesterday our temps reached 90 degrees and it was the first time I slept with the bedroom door open and windows open. I didn’t realize our neighbors got a new […]

Since we had rain all weekend long, I welcomed the time spent indoors. Besides going to the gym in the morning, I didn’t leave the house or changed from my lounge wear for a whole day. Instead of watching movies all day long, which I love to do on lazy days, I baked and cooked […]

When I first started the blog, I knew very little about designing a blog. I didn’t spend a lot of time fretting about the design because I just wanted to get started. I just wanted a medium where I can talk about the fun stuff that happens in life, a place where I can post […]

I am San Francisco bound this morning on my way to the Foodbuzz Blogger Festival. I’m at the airport waiting for my flight to San Francisco. My flight is delayed so might as well take advantage of  the free internet 🙂 It’s another beautiful day in SoCal, sad to leave the sunshine but I’m prepared […]

Pumpkin Coconut Raisin Bars

One of the reasons I love Fall is because it’s the season of many festivities. Since leaves don’t really change color in L.A., the first sign of fall for me are the colorful pumpkins. I see them being displayed at stores, then next I see the pumpkin patch locations in the neighborhood but the biggest […]

Today’s post is The One where I talk about the random things that happened to me this week. I have scattered brain today because I am lacking sleep (big time) from a fun outing last night that involved horror nights, vampires and zombies. It was really fun, so it was worth it…I will post recap […]
