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, bu

Gratitude

Looky what came yesterday! My Word of the Year Necklace created by Lisa Leonard ! As the New Year approached I decided to choose a word that would define my upcoming year and I chose Gratitude. Around Thanksgiving, I set up my new blog, " I Am Thankful For..." and started keeping a daily journal of all the things I have to be Thankful, or Grateful for. Each day I would review my day in my head and list at least 5 things I had to be Grateful For. It has changed the way I approach each day tending to look for the positive instead of the negative in what life has to offer. If you'd like to find your word of the year, visit Christine Kanes' website  and pick a word of the year for yourself. Then I'd hop on over to the Lisa Leonard site and pick a wonderful necklace stating your intention for the year!

Week 7: A Valentine's Pie To Remember!

Back with Week #7 of my 52 weeks of pie! Like most of us, I wanted to create a really beautiful pie, well actually a tart, especially for my Valentine, Wes. It had to be chocolate, decadent and beautiful all at the same time. After looking high and low on the internet for something good, I decided on THIS wonderful Salted Caramel Chocolate Tart featured on the Frayed Apron Blog. I mean, look at her picture! Who wouldn't want to make and eat this??!! (From the Frayed Apron Blog) Now, you may say a Tart isn't a Pie but it actually is. It has a crust and a filling so in my book, its a VARIETY of pie. Over the course of my "52 Weeks of Pie," you will see tarts, pies and galettes, a free form type of pie. So keep checking back, you'll be glad you did! The first different thing for me was the crust. It's put together much like the others with just the addition of cocoa powder. I did use the vodka again instead of the water or milk as suggested because
