Dock by the Bay

Posted on

It was a beautiful day to be on the bay… although a bit cold. But I don’t know why I expected anything less.  I was lucky enough to be invited out on a sailing boat by my friend Jessica and her co workers!  SPOILED.

The beginning was smooth sailing… literally!  We all had a nice complimentary brunch, went under the Bay Bridge and made our way past the Port of San Francisco. 

It was a beautiful day to be out in the sun, looking in on the city!  And let’s be honest, anytime you know you’re going to be on a boat, you can’t help but want to dress the part!  So I went with the red & white stripes and lots of sunscreen 🙂

Crazy Hair.

Then we headed into the fog, which NO ONE was taking pictures because at that point we were all freezing!  But once we turned around and headed back into the city, it was just as beautiful as we left it.

Cheers to many more days in the sun!  (and being able to dress the part)

New Years Inspiration

New Years Inspiration

The New Year has come and passed, and it is another year and so far there is a lot to celebrate.  I recently just got a new job (check it out http://www.localhero.come) which allows me to plan my future a bit more clearly.

My number one inspiration for the new year is my momma!  in 2011 she did her first full marathon!  I was able to be there and support her for it, and it truly was an encouraging sight to see.  We talk on the phone everyday, so I was able to share her journey of long runs, soreness and perserverness to wake up at the butt crack of dawn to run before work!  Then I got to see her at the finish line, and she was so amazing!  I am only encouraged to get out there and to get healthy and start running.  I don’t think I could do 26.2 miles, but I’m not excluding the idea!

Numbers

We were able to go with her to get her number and register!  EXCITING!

My mom had no idea that we had stuck that sticker on her BEEhind.  Muhaha.  Even Tomlin (the dog) knew what was up.

SHE DID IT!!

I am sorry, but I know that I wouldn’t be looking as good as this group of people if I ran as far as they did! Sexy group!

I know that my mom would say, if she could do it, you can do it!  And it’s totally true!  She did a really bad ass thing… now I will be totally honest and say that I can live the rest of my life without running a marathon… but a fun 5k wouldn’t be too bad!  Congrats again mom!  You truly are my HERO!

Focused

Hello all!  Hope everyone is having a relaxing week.  The past few months have been a little crazy, but I shouldnt complain.  I am finally able to get back into the groove and I have made some interesting things that I want to do for myself and with all of you readers.

I am here to share my experience with you about being a curvy gal in a more or less skinny world.  And with that said I am glad to say that I have only been encouraged by this, but I have to admit that even I wake up certian days and I am grumpy pants, and don’t “feel” pretty.

There are three things that I want to do:

  • Lose 30 pounds
  • Eat Healthier
  • Drink more water
  • Exercise atleast 10 minutes a day

I realize that these seem like simple things, but for me they really are a challange!  And I am not doing it to be SKINNY… by no means!  But healthy is important… right now I can’t walk up a slight incline without turning red in the face and dripping through my shirt. (Gross I know)  Anyways, I was reading this article that I found on StumpleUpon: http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/AsTrug/mashrabiyya.wordpress.com/2011/03/14/in-vogue-women-beauty-the-grotesque-and-the-other

I found it an interesting take on the difference of fashion and blah blah blah.  Read and see how your feel about it, and come to your own conclusion.  I personally want hips and boobs and a butt… thats what MAKES me a woman.

So I invite you to join me on this not so unique quest to live a healthy lifestyle while maintaining my feminine shape and exploring new fashions and plan just loving life!!  And promise me this… that you do it for yourself.  No one else.  Because life wont be worth living until you love yourself.

EXCITED!

LAlalands

The past few weeks have been crazy, and only lately have I been able to pop my head out.

 

I was able to visit the ‘rents in Claremont California this past weekend, and was able to snatch up this cute skirt from my mama.  Apparently she had the same type of outfit when she was pregos with me.  So, I was able to work it out, and it was a comfy, cut and perfect for the southern california weather.

 

 

 

 

And we were able to shop around the little farmers market in the village.  I love the small town feel.

Birthday Month Part 1

Hello friends!

 

Birthday month is slowly coming to a close, but it’s been a wild and crazy ride, and I have loved every single minute of it!  Birthdays are the best because it brings everyone together to celebrate the life of a loved one!  woot.

Having lived in San Francisco for three years, I consider myself very lucky to have found a group of people who are awesome friends, talented, smart and not bad-looking either.  😉

 

Birthday Lovin

This is just one night of celebrating the birthday month! And we even made some new friends who were visiting and wanted to join in on the good times!

There are many more good times to be had.  Hope you get to share your birthday with wonderful friends too!

Hello Autumn

So it is officially Football Season!  I was walking to work yesterday and there were couples waking around wearing matching jerseys.  Then I went out to dinner and there were some serious DUDES drinking, eating tacos and watching the game.  It was only good.  I always get excited when football season gets here because it means crisp sunny days and it’s my favorite!  Ready to break out my scarves and cute boots!  (Although it has been nice and sunny here in the city)

 

So here is to the new football season and pumpkin EVERYTHING!

 

 

 

 

… but also not forgetting about baseball season. Lot’s of sports to keep us entertained.

Represent!

 

Sweet Setup

 

Happy Tailgating friends!  Whether it be with friends or family or BOTH… have too much fun!  THIS is how I like to welcome Autumn!  hehe

Soaking Up Some Sun

Who hates a sunny day?  Well, to be perfectly honest sometimes I do… I just hate being sweaty.  blah  But I was fortunate to spend some time outside, saoking it in, shopping and lounging.

Pants: H&M Shirt: Can't remember 😦 Shoes: Naya

I love shopping... for anything.

So I really loved this outfit because despite the heat I didn’t feel like I had to run around in short shorts and a tiny tank top… I am just now getting used to showing my arms so I slightly cringe at the idea of a tank top, so this top enables me to take baby steps. hehe  But the pants fit comfortable and were breathable… tmi, but important.  And the top was loose fitting which helped, because I dislike clingy things in the sunshine. Again with the sweating. gross.

And what do you think, taking better pictures?  Less awkward?  Maybe a little less anyways?  Hope you are all having a great month of Septemeber!  I know I am, and I will be sharing the good times soon enough!
