      It’s been a while since I’ve written about my hiking adventures, and my hikes have been few and far between over the last 4 months. I plan on catching you all up in the coming weeks with the handful of hikes I did go on over the summer; however I thought I’d […]...

  A couple weeks back I joined about 9,000 other participants in this year’s Run or Dye Color Run in San Luis Obispo, CA. We had so much fun! My girlfriends and I created a group called “Parental Colors,” and we even brought a few of our kids. I don’t know who had more fun, […]...

When I was younger the only thing that I associated with Avon was a little old blue-hair lady with bright red lipstick and bad makeup. Well, this isn’t your mother’s (or grandmother’s) Avon anymore! Avon has so many things to things to offer: Color cosmetics Skincare Fragrance Fashion & Home Personal Care Home Care With […]...

  Oops! We did it again! It’s only been 7 weeks since Arleena and I last visited Murray Hill (otherwise known as the Unnamed Hill)/ Reservoir Canyon Trail. I cannot believe we chose to do the other side – and on a sweltering 90-degree sunny day no less! The last time we ventured up this […]...

  This week Arleena and I wanted to revisit the trails of Irish Hills.   This mountain range has several different routes to hike that it will take a few more trips to explore the entire area. Back in week 15 we ventured through Mariposa and King trails. This week we traveled along Poppy to Froom […]...

This week Arleena and I revisited Cerro San Luis (or San Luis Mountain). Back in week 12, Arleena and I made a wrong turn on this trail that only got us to the M on this mountain which about ¾ of the way up to the top. Needless to say we were a bit bummed […]...

Objective:  Hike at least once a week.  Whether the hikes are big or small, long or short, with or without kids, I want to actively engage my body and enjoy this beautiful world we live in.  There are so many places to go (free places to boot) that I want to explore them all. I […]...

  Sometimes I find it difficult to get motivated.  Week 14 was one of those weeks.  Arleena and I needed to switch up our scheduled hiking day when we heard the rain forecasted for the week.  I never thought of myself as a girl who likes her schedules, but when it comes to my workouts […]...

Last week, Arleena and I climbed a mountain – literally – we climb a freaking mountain!!!  In all my years since I’ve lived here on the Central Coast, I’ve always looked at Bishop’s Peak saying, “one day, I’ll hike up that mountain.” And I cannot even tell you how accomplished I feel for completing that […]...

Growing up, I was the oldest of 4 girls in our house.  How ironic was it that I became a mother to 3 boys (no girls in the mix)?  It wasn’t until I met Frank that I became a stepmom (for all intents and purposes) to his 2 girls and 1 son.  As a young […]...

 Ok, don’t hate me, but it wasn’t until this past weekend that it started getting chilly here on the Central Coast of California.  I mostly grew up in South Carolina where they have recognizable seasons, and while I listen to the news and hear about all the cold weather my nostrils are filled with the […]...

Remember growing up?  I do!  I remember wanting to be tall and beautiful with a decent sized set of boobs!  As a teen, I welcomed puberty and was excited for the boobs that would come in for me, just like they did for the popular girls and the cheerleaders.  They came in all right, but […]...

I love it when my legs are smooth!  Unfortunately, the hair on my legs grows pretty quickly.  Too bad my nails don’t grow that fast, but that’s another story for another day.  I went in to get my eyebrows waxed one day and the Aesthetician said she wanted to try out a new sugaring product on […]...

I am a natural redhead and have naturally fair skin.  My three boys have also inherited my fair skin.  All of us are very prone to sunburns, which makes spending time outdoors a challenge.  With the summer here, we enjoy spending more time playing outside in the sun without the constant distraction of remote controls, […]...
