Pismo Beach Featured in Westways Magazine!

My new Westways arrived in the mailbox yesterday and had a page featuring a Day Trip to Pismo Beach. (pg. 30 if you get the magazine) If you don't get the magazine, I'll try to put up some of the most interesting things from the article. First the map from the downtown area with featured places to visit highlighted.
The first catagory covered was places to EAT. They suggested (1) Old West Cinnamon Rolls. 1861 Dolliver Street. Follow the smell of just baked cinnamon rolls and inside you will hear the rolls are "the best in the world."
(2) Steamers of Pismo Beach. 1601 Price Street. Known for its panoramic ocean view and award-winning clam chowder and some of the tastiest fish and chips in town.
And (3)
Rosa's Italian Restaurant. 491 Price Street. Try the thin-crust pizza with Italian sausage, salami, and green pepper. Be sure to save room for the tiramisu.
Next, there were the places to PLAY. Number (4) is Hotlix. 179 Pomeroy Avenue. Kown for its chocolate-covered ants and worm suckers.
(5) The Sky's the Limit Toy & Kite Shop 761 Dolliver St. Go buy a kite with pictures of ladybugs, flowers, or circus animals.


(6) Beach Cycle Rentals 150 Hinds Ave. They can outfit your for a day at the beach with bikes, surfboards, boogie boards, wetsuits, umbrellas, or beach chairs.
(7) Cottage Inn By The Sea 2351 Price Street. Relax at the thatch-roofed Inn with a cliff top pool and spa.

(8) The Cliffs Resort 2757 Shell Beach Road. Enjoy the bluff sop setting, where rooms furnished in soothing colors frame ocean or mountain views.

These are just a few things to see during your visit. There are many other wonderful motels, restaurants to fit all budgets, nearby shopping at our local Prime Outlets in Pismo Beach, Regal 10-Plex Movie Theater and Miles of Beach to walk and drive on. (Yes! I said drive on!) Local Farmer's Markets are held each week in several locations within driving distance. So come for a day, a weekend or even a week and take in the mild weather and mellow people.

For hours, availability of businesses, attractions, and events, visit the Pismo Beach Conference and Visitors Bureau, 581 Dolliver Ave, corner of Hinds and Dolliver (Hwy 1) call (805) 773-7034 or visit Classic California website.

Baby Shower Busy-ness

Ok, you probably thought I fell off the face of the earth right? Nope, there is just alot happening around here. The next event is Beckie's Baby Shower this Sunday. Decided to make my very first Diaper Cake and these are just a few of the pictures.

The first thing I did was watch about 20 YouTube videos describing how to do it. Then I bought my supplies and put it together roughly first then more refined about a day later. This is a close up of the baby sock roses with mitten leaves. Yes, that video DOES exist!

Next is a close up of wrist rattles and a little caterpiller radio that makes soothing sounds for baby. Background ribbon is from WalMart and the blanket set is from the Jungle Adventure Collection at K-mart.


The topper for our "Jungle" themed cake is a Silver Back Ganz Gorilla.


These little links slipped easily over the ribbon and added a little extra bling to the sides of the cake.


Each layer consists of diapers along with extras like washcloths, burp pads and Ones…

Hey Retirement! Don't take OUR Date Night Away!!

"Wait! Did we budget for Date Night??"

Wednesday night is Date Night at our house. It's been that way for a LONG time! And we didn't want retirement to do away with our weekly fun. So today, I'm going to cover some good ways to keep that fun coming and be able to pay for it with slightly reduced funds.
Put some money in the budget. Analyze what you can afford and how many times you will be going out during the month. If you get paid twice a month, budget for two date nights. If you get paid weekly, you only need to budget it in for the week. For us, we are getting paid once a month so we will budget for 4 to 5 nights out. We set aside about $20 to $25 per week for date nightRemember, it's about spending time together not how fancy the dining is. You can make a picnic one week and then spend double the following week at a nice place. You can make dinner at home and go to see a play or movie. In our case we could go to the beach with some hot dogs, potato chips a…

Valentino!

As last year drew to a close, so did the life of my most cherished chihuahua, Rico. I'd had him for almost 16 years and over the past 3 or 4, I watched as he went mostly blind and began suffering with trachea collapse. After 4 visits to the doggie hospital for oxygen in December, he finally had his final ER visit on New Year's Eve and we made sad decision to have him put down. What a way for a year to end. By this time, I had already chosen my "Word of the Year" for 2018 which was Joy and was having trouble figuring out just what was joyful about little Rico's passing. I also decided that he was going to be my last dog because my husband and I are getting older and I didn't want to have a dog that would need to be "passed down" in the event of our deaths. But, every day, I found myself cruising the online breeders for another chihuahua. I visited the local pet shops with their super high priced dogs looking for a replacement for Rico, and had nearly…
