{Photos} California Day 2: Half Moon Bay

October 1, 2013

After our day in San Francisco, we headed down the coast to Half Moon Bay. It was quite busy (being Labor Day weekend after all), but we were determined to look at our beaches. We looked at about 5 beaches and loved the ones further down the coast but all in all, after the entire trip we decided that Half Moon Bay was just not right for the wedding. We still love the area though!

Must-Do’s in Half Moon Bay

  • Enjoy a drink and dinner at Pasta Moon
  • Grab a coffee at Half Moon Bay Coffee
  • Walk down Main St
  • If you are into golf, check out the many options for golfing
  • Take a book and blanket and relax on Pomponio State Beach
  • Get a massage at the Ritz-Carlton

Music Monday: FALL in Love Playlist

September 30, 2013

Who doesn’t love new music? I love it. Today I mixed both new and old songs to bring together a fun fall playlist. I jammed to it while I cleaned this weekend! So I would say it’s pretty awesome.

{Photos} California Day 1: San Francisco

September 24, 2013

I hope you are having a great week so far. I am. It’s our annual conference (Anytime Fitness) and even though I am not going, the office is buzzing with excitement. It’s a very fun environment. I am finally getting around to looking through my photos from California. Here are some from our first day in San Francisco. We mostly drove around, checked out the farmers market, some beaches, and japantown! Check it out:

Delicious finds at the Farmer’s Market at the Ferris Building Marketplace. I specifically enjoyed a delicious white nectarine which was perfectly ripe and juicy!

This was a fantastic find I saw as we were driving to the Golden Gate (which was hidden due to extreme fog). It was a portable circuit workout. It was fun to watch people do kettlebells, box jumps, and push-ups!

We stayed at the Hotel Kabuki in Japantown which is a very beautiful hotel! It also had a Japanese soaking tub which was fantastic. Oh my goodness, that is totally on my dream house wish list!

I had forgot my USB cord for my camera. It was a sad moment but then we realized they had a DAISO store. If you are ever in Japantown, this store is just fun to walk around…plus it’s very cheap! Walking around Japantown you will find Sophie’s Crepes and fun Alpaca games! What fun.

And we are on the road…to Half Moon Bay. Stay tuned for more photos!
