2015 Goal: Eat Organic At Least 75% of the Time

Hello, there!
Turns out organic, grass-fed cheese is delicious AND affordable!

Today I'm sharing another goal for 2015: to eat ORGANIC as much as possible. 

Look at this beautiful, organic food coop I get to shop in! I can't believe I don't go there more often, what's wrong with me?

Do YOU buy organic? If so, what prompted you to do so? And what are your favorite organic products that AREN'T fruits or veggies?

2015 Goal: Beach Walking and "Earthing"

Hello there!

As I mentioned earlier, I have no resolutions, but a few goals for 2015. One of them is to TAKE A WALK ON THE BEACH at least twice a month. 

Will I be enjoying the benefits of "grounding" or "earthing" as some call it? Who knows! But I shot this video yesterday and I still feel terrific.

Here's a video by Dr. Stephen Sinatra explaining the basic principles of grounding/earthing:

Of course, I'm not a doctor-just a kooky Californian. Be sure and check with your doctor before trying any new health kookiness!

(If you're reading this anywhere but then you are reading stolen content. Don't support thieving cochinos, please!)

In other news, can you believe how close the beach is to me? Crazy.

What are YOUR 2015 goals?

HAPPY 2015! Goals and Snack Finds :)


Hope 2015 is treating you well. I'm a little behind this month, I got sidelined by that awful flu that is sweeping the nation, yuck! While I was laid up, I noticed that many of my favorite bloggers and friends were posting a "Word for 2015" like: motivation, consistency, joy, etc. I thought this was a wonderful idea but felt too weak to come up with one myself, so here we are.

I also didn't get any resolutions together, for the first time in at least 10 years! Have any of the rest of you been experiencing "New Year Fatigue"? 

But I *do* have some things I'd like to do more of in 2015, just nothing I'd go as far as to classify as a resolution. I'll just call them goals. So stay tuned for those!

In the meantime, here's a couple of snack finds I'm relying on these days. I love Blue Diamond almonds and I first learned about Angie's Popcorn from Melissa of The Daily Mel last Valentine's day. Since then I always scour the "holiday" section of Target for these-thanks Melissa!

HAPPY 2015! What do YOU want to do this year?

BOXING DAY ROAD TRIP and Mitsubishi Mirage review #DriveMitsubishi

Hello there!

How are your holidays going? Do you have plans for NYE? I can't believe it, but we actually have no plans for the 31st for the first time in over 20 years!

As you may have heard me mention before, an unexpected surprise of the holiday season is that we were given an opportunity to review the Mistubishi Mirage during Christmas week. We thought it would be a perfect way to take our kids up to the mountains to see snow...but it's way to warm to snow up there, at least for now. 

My husband found us a great deal on a room at the Casa Del Zorro resort in Borrego Springs, right in the middle of Borrego Springs State Park. That's in the particularly beautiful stretch of desert. Here's a video recap!

All in all it was a great, impromptu trip. We'll definitely be going back, though perhaps we'll have to spend a bit more on gas than we did this time!

Did you do any traveling this holiday season?

Disclosure: I was loaned the Mistubishi Mirage for review purposes, but not paid to share a review. The above is my honest opinion, honest!
