SB: Brewhouse Melts Mama’s Face

Last night the Future Husband and I walked to a local eatery and brewhouse, literally called The Brewhouse – that on that site called Yelp, got serious great reviews.

With them being walking distance to the Eagle Inn where we frequently lay out noggins when in Santa Barbara, we couldn’t resist. After browsing their website and realizing they had a wicked good happy hour, we strolled down the street and away from the beach.

Their list of beers that brew themselves as well as on tap was startlingly impressive….

Road Trippin’ to the Lost Abbey


I love exploring parts of worlds that I think I already know really well, and find places I didn’t know where there. Every time the Boyfriend and I drive down to San Diego, we talk about exploring certain places and going to certain things – and this time I wasn’t going to make it all the way down here without visiting some of the tasty flavors.

It seemed so effortless. My Mom and her AAA Travel Guide with a pen, a highlighter and some maps took us all over So Cal and beyond! The memories I made from those adventures and still carry with me have created the passion I have for crafting amazing outings for my own family.

Thanks to my new fabulous friend Amanda Prince and owner of Prince Pines, I was able to plan a journey to the mountains of intensely fabulous proportions! With Spring Break looming on the horizon, I was desperate for an escape from town that didn’t include an overcrowded amusement park or jaunting to the beach in horrible weather. So after connecting with Amanda in the So Cal Lady Bloggers group on Facebook, I started crafting a trip for me and the boys that would include relaxation and a little fun in the snow.
