Cabo San Lucas & Todo Santos, Baja California Sur

One of my highly anticipated trips this year was to Cabo San Lucas for my work wife’s destination wedding. I’m more of a mountain person so an all-inclusive beach resort was new to me and I didn’t hate it. Price-wise, $1500 was a deal for 2 people, 4 nights in a suite, and with all food and drinks we could want. Room service sparkling wine … Continue reading Cabo San Lucas & Todo Santos, Baja California Sur

Sunday Bests: Catching Up with Friends

I’ve caught up on sleep and maybe I’m even oversleeping by going to bed by 8 or 9pm. Working out when I wake up has helped my mood after work and allowed me to do things with friends. I shared a bottle of wine (50% off) with a co-worker at Cultivation Kitchen then passed out, drove out to Chino Hills to visit a friend and … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Catching Up with Friends

Kicking off November in the Desert (Idyllwild, Palm Springs, Joshua Tree)

It’s November and thank goodness. I don’t put a hex on October because it’s notoriously challenging, it’s a fact – it’s a busy month without any days off! March is the other challenging month. It was a festive week and a short week too! Friday was student-free. Red Ribbon/Spirit Week My co-workers and I dressed up all week. I got in the spirit with my … Continue reading Kicking off November in the Desert (Idyllwild, Palm Springs, Joshua Tree)

Sunday Bests: Worse Before It Gets Better

Continued Anxiety (from last week) I worked alllll day on Wednesday night and took myself to Purify Sauna Lounge. On the way home, 8 at night, I had a blowout on the freeway. Thankfully, I got my spare put on quickly, but, because I instinctively stepped on the brake, I slammed into my dashboard screen and cracked the touchscreen. The display is still working yet … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Worse Before It Gets Better

Sunday Bests: Leaf Chasing & Pumpkin Carving

In past Octobers, I’ve been to the Eastern Sierras and New Mexico for some of the most relaxing trips. Last year in October, I spent a 3-day weekend in Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear. I’m a PSL basic b*tch but now I’m into apple cinnamon everything instead. Somehow, I’m being more responsible with my funds and I’m going to a destination wedding next month and … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Leaf Chasing & Pumpkin Carving

Sunday Bests: My So-Called Break Weekend

I was supposed to take a break this week. There were cool things happenin’ in San Diego, but gas is over $4/gallon here and I’m sick of being in traffic… and I was just overwhelmed and tired. So, unfortunately, I don’t know what breaks look like. My non-breaks look like big events and out-of-town day or overnight trips. On Sunday night, I picked up a … Continue reading Sunday Bests: My So-Called Break Weekend

Sunday Bests: Me at my best (at home, at work, with friends)

This was an insane week, but I showed up for it. It was even that time of the month! It was me doing my best, being a good enough teacher (2 of 4 periods are lovely, the other 2 kill me), and taking time to be with friends yet still getting activity and rest. Me, at home Me, at work Me, with friends Yelp 80s … Continue reading Sunday Bests: Me at my best (at home, at work, with friends)
