Day 1 & Some weekend fun

I’m doing a fun little photo challenge for the next 30 days with some friends. Some of them are pretty simple, but some make you think a bit and are just fun ideas to test your skillz. Today’s challenge (the first day) was to take a photo of yourself.

Soooo, when you work all day, get home and quickly change and head to the gym, then come back home and make dinner, it’s late, and you’re stinky and tired. But, you document your lovely face and greasy hair anyways. Hot.

Moving right along!

One day over this last holiday weekend we made a spur-of-the-moment trip to the coast to meet up with some good friends.  The drive as you got closer to the coast (and through some wine country) was SO pretty, everything was so green and lush.

That’s a lake, but if you look closely you can see the ocean in the background – gorgeous.

My husband is crazzzyyyy!

We spent a few hours in Cayucos just walking around and grabbing a bite to eat. Then we ventured over to San Luis Obispo to do a little of the same. We ended the evening at Creekside Brewing Company, and the beers were really good (yep, tried them all…duh!). Sometime I wish beer wasn’t so filling 🙂 On the way home as we were driving and it was getting dark I was looking around (there’s lots and lots of cows and horses in fields along the drive) and I spotted a large family of deer, maybe elk, trotting along close to the road. So cute! I kind of wish we would have stopped to take some photos.


Beer me.

Not sure how it all started, but within the past year or so Chris and I have taken an interest in craft beers. We don’t make our own (though it would be fun to try!), but we go out of our way wherever we go to either buy something we haven’t tried, or find a brewery. It’s kind of fun!  Anyways, we took a little trip down to the Ikea in Burbank today, and stopped at one of our most favorite places on the way home, Bevmo.

We haven’t tried any of these.  I wanted to try the Dogfish Head, because well, they are awesome. They had 3 other types, but 2 were sold out…so we got this “Palo Santo Marron” (at $16 for a 4 pack…it better be good). It’s actually an aged beer, and has notes of caramel and vanilla = SOLD.

Besides those large bottles of beer, we also got some yummy sodas. I’m not really a soda drinker, but I do love me some orange cream soda, as well as root beer – so I will probably at least try them!  Also, how cute are all the bottles? That’s obviously how I pick my drinks 🙂

So yeah, cheers!
