Old OC: Knowlwood Burgers

Just outside of Yorba Linda, and literarily across the tracks into Anaheim Hills there is a landmark that the longtime locals know and love. Knowlwood. Now when I was a kid, Knowlwood was a biker-burger hangout. It wasn’t more than a shack with a few picnic tables and you parked on dirt. Something that caused [...]

Pretty sure I am going to hell and the comedy of angels.

  I am pretty sure I am going to hell. Last night we went as a family to see "Glory of Christmas" at the famous mega-church-corporation; Crystal Cathedral. I had never been, and it was at my husbands suggestion (who doesn’t step foot in a church unless someone is getting married or dies. Or both). [...]

The Melting Pot. Next time I will be prepared.

A few nights ago we went to The Melting Pot in Brea, CA. I have wanted to go to this ‘fondu’ restaurant for years. Partially for the retro-ness of it and partially because I heard how much fun it was. The decor was lovely and cave-like and romantic. (Which was a totally waste since we [...]

We totally made Santa laugh.

We were feeling INSANE and decided to go to the mall on Black Friday. We never dreamed we would be able to get even near the big guy. We were certain the line was going to be far too long. But guess what? Turns out most people don’t even bring their kids with them to [...]

Fiesta Day Parade

  Every year, for as long as I can remember, my town Yorba Linda has a ‘Fiesta Day’ parade and fair. Our part of Orange County was founded by Spanish cowboy farmers, and is now one of the last cities in Orange County which is still zoned for horse ownership. Something we are all proud [...]

Family Field Trip: Oak Glen, CA

    Having moved around a far amount in the 10 years we have been married, both my husband and I have always enjoyed taking ‘Family Field Trips’ for just the day. There is so much to do- not matter where we live…that we always have lots of options. And today we drove about 60 miles [...]

I am blaming Miley Cyrus.

So when I got the e-mail from our friends asking ‘hey you wanna go to D-land for a few hours on Sunday?’ and I replied ‘Sure!’…do you think I realized the park opened at 6:30 AM? Apparently some girl named Miley Cyrus was having a birthday party there that night-so they were closing the park [...]

We’ve got crabs…so bite me.

           Hello all….I have been away for a few days. I attempted to take a end-of the summer vacation. We shared a place down in Newport Coast Villas for the week with family friends. But between football, taekwondo and guitar lessons…I found myself back at home nearly every day at some point. It [...]
