2014 Progressive Insurance Los Angeles Boat Show

full disclousre: I will be attending the boat show for free. All opinions are my own. Remember when I told you all about my harbor cruise at Strictly Sail Long Beach? Well, there’s another fun boating event coming up – the 2014 Progressive Insurance Los Angeles Boat Show. It’s happening February 6-9 at the Los […]

Strictly Sail Long Beach Harbor Tour

Last week Strictly Sail Long Beach was held at Shoreline Village. Sailing is a big mystery to me so I was excited to check it out (I was given free admission). There were lots of booths, even more sailboats and hands on demonstrations. My absolute favorite part was a harbor cruise on the catamaran Bama […]

A Day at the Races at Santa Anita Park

Santa Anita Park had long been one of those places that I’d wanted to go to but somehow never visited. One reason was that I had never been to a horse race before and…well…I was curious. The other was that I’d long heard it was an Art Deco gem. Built in 1934 it still retained […]

Spotlight on Local Charity BookEnds

I know this spotlight series usually highlights a local brand but Southern California is also home to many wonderful charities and BookEnds is a new favorite. BooksEnds was founded by Brandon, an eight year old boy, who noticed that a local children’s home was in desperate need of books for their library. He solicited his […]

Having Fun at Dig This Las Vegas

When researching things to do in Las Vegas I went to Trip Advisor and found that the number one rated attraction was something called Dig This. Turns out it’s a chance for the average Joe or Jill to use bulldozers and excavators. Then Dig This Las Vegas asked me if I’d like to try it […]

Learning to Shoot at Guns and Ammo Garage in Las Vegas

Let me preface this by saying guns scare the heck out of me. I don’t own a gun and in fact (until this visit) I had never even seen one in person. But…I’ve long been interested in visiting a shooting gallery. Not the carnival kid. Those I’m quite familiar with. I’m talking about the kind […]

Enjoying Hockey Despite the Lockout – Watching an Ontario Reign Game

If you look to the right hand side of this here blog you’ll see an icon that says SoCal Lady Bloggers. That, my friends, is an awesome blogging community that I happen to be a part of. It’s a group of women from all walks of life coming together to support and encourage each other […]

Take Me Out To the Ballgame – Touring Angel Stadium

Baseball season is just around the corner. At least I think it is. I’m not really sure since I don’t follow the sport. Although, I’m not a fan I did recently tour Angel Stadium. I may not be too interested in what’s going on on the field but I certainly am curious about what goes […]

Bowl – O – Rama

There’s something so nostalgic about bowling, isn’t there? It reminds me of school holidays as a pre-teen when my friends and I would go to the bowling alley and feel so old because our parents actually dropped us off. Two hours unsupervised? We really were growing up. Alas, as an adult, I rarely go bowling […]
