Hello + Happy Monday!  Did you wake up motivated?  Or are you dragging ass?  I fall in the later category.  Is too much sleep a real thing?  I’m currently downing my second cup of joe ready to kick some ass, kinda!  Image-1 (3).png

 

 

Intentions for the week:

  • Style my nightstand(Did you catch the dets on {a little of this + a little of that})
  • Get Bay packed for Tahoe(Her closet is empty)
  • Seka Hills Fireworks-   – (Always a good time) 
  • Pull out all our red, white + blue decor(Even thought there wasn’t a bike parade :()
  • Make flag luminaries(Coming Wednesday…stay tuned!)
  • Create an appetizer with watermelon(Has anyone tried the {watermelon bruschetta})
  • NO online purchases ALL week FML! – (Epic FAIL!  Too many good sales to pass up)
  • 70 oz water daily(Killed it….till the weekend)
  • Decide on one thing to give up for 30 days…this is tricky!(I may be setting myself up for a massive failure) 
  • Track down some new foodie finds(ohhhh, ACV drinks…sharing the details Friday)
  • Pay Park Winters a visit(Spent the most magical afternoon at my very first influencer event.  We’ll be chatting more about that)

Always admiring the sun when it shines through my dungeon house

Dillon Beach //

Have you ever seen that many peeps posted on Dillon Beach?  Me either.  I’ve never endured that kind of traffic either!  EVERYONE and their mother’s headed to the coast to beat the heat!

IMG_7930

Crabbing + Bud Lights go hand in hand

IMG_7940

I think I brought the guys luck!  Ha!  Can’t decide which one of these I like better.

Crab vs. Cory

Hmmm.

IMG_7941

Beautiful day on the water

IMG_7942

I pulled this crab net and let me tell you, it was heavy AF!  No wonder!  It was also full AF!

IMG_7943

First time we’ve caught all Dungeness crab.  Last time we only pulled rock crab.

Watching the sunset in Jenner, CA

Dinner at River’s End.  Everytime we pass this restaurant I always say some day I want to stop.  But there is NEVER any parking.  Which must mean this place is legit.

There just to happen to be 1 spot.  So we stopped!  Bucket list CHECK!  √

River’s End is perched on a bluff overlooking the Russian River where it greets the Pacific Ocean.  It’s fucking magical!

Oh and the chard, it was fantastic too!

IMG_7966

I didn’t take any photos of our food other than the butter, ha!  As you can see, even the butter had amazing presentation.  The food was to die for!  I read that they prefer you save your phones + photos for the outdoors.  Once I read that, I obliged.  It was really hard though…lol.

The views from this place were seriously out of a magazine.

IMG_7963

We set up camp at Casini Ranch.  The ONLY campground with a spot left.  Like I said, the amount of peeps at the coast was absolutely unreal!

IMG_7967

Homeward bound lead us through Occidental.  Which I’ve been to once.  After a girls trip to the Happy Hideout.  I think it was the time we left Bodega and stopped for breakfast?  I got violently ill.  I belive it was a possible case of the bottle flu.  So this quant little town looked pretty new to me 🙂

IMG_7974IMG_7975

Pit stop for Michelada’s + breakfast burritos at El Mariachi Cafe.  Total dive Mexican restaurant, but their food was bomb.com

IMG_7982

We went though Sepastopol, which I’d also never visited.  Such a cute town.  I want to spend more time and dig in to all it has to offer.

We took every back road we could find.  Which lead us to another spot I’ve always wanted to stop at…..The Fremont Diner.

This place has been on my radar since Gal Meets Glam blogged about it back in March 2016,

IMG_7987

I had no idea what I got myself into.  I needed about 2 hours to check this whole place out.  That cute trailer is where you place to-go orders.

I highly recommend the peanut butter shake!

IMG_7985

Love exploring anywhere + everywhere, but

There is no place like home.  Especially when Bay’s home ♥

IMG_7996

We watched movies.  Did 3 Pilates videos.  Made taco salads together.  And had a slumber party in my room!

IMG_7999
