Pop-Up Fixer-Upper: Part 1

It’s no secret that these LL805 ladies loooove camping — what, you haven’t seen all of our Instagram posts?! 😉

Both my husband and I grew up camping with our families all of our lives [he in a pop-up tent trailer, me in a camper on the back of my dad’s truck].  We have such hilarious ridiculous fond memories of sitting with our marshmallow-clad roasters extended over a roaring fire, eating hot dogs, and getting into various types of mischief in the middle of nowhere.

Regardless of where we set up camp, one thing was for sure — nothing makes a strong family bond like having …

Growing up, I was not a fan of long car rides.  I was the kid that kept asking, “How many more minutes until we get there?” and groaning at whatever answer I received.  Of course, I wasn’t completely miserable the whole time — …

Beachfront + Affordable Al Fresco Dining {Padaro Beach Grill}

This weekend, we went beach camping with Brett’s parents — they drove their vintage trailer on its “maiden voyage” from Tahoe, and will be spending a total of 14 days camping in various locations across the 805!

We met up with them in Carpinteria, which immediately made me crave fish and chips from Padaro Beach Grill.  This preggo woman was appeased (thanks, guys!) and we decided to have dinner there Saturday night.

Are You a Camper or a Glamper? Or both? {local getaway}

We have the perfect getaway for you — so perfect, in fact, that I almost want to keep it secret. But we wouldn’t do that! Just keep it on the DL so all of LA doesn’t catch on to how awesome the 805 is 😉 JK!!! kinda…

Anyway, here’s the scoop –

You’ve heard us talk about our LOVE for Santa Barbara and camping a few times before, so here’s a little more.

Ocean Mesa Campground and El Capitan Canyon, both located north of Santa Barbara, offer something for everyone — the glamper and the camper! El …
