So, remember when we did that amazing Mommy Meet Up at The Promenade at Westlake in collaboration with Vintage Grocers and The Arterie Studio? I know it was back in April, and I’m just now getting around to writing the blog post, but… #momlife.
For those who are moms, we know how exhausting the day-to-day can be, and how necessary it is to have the support of other moms — not only for our own sanity, but also to know that we’re not alone in this journey. Motherhood can be isolating at times, and it’s …
I’m sure many of you have driven by the Santa Barbara Polo Club just north of Carpinteria, but have never stopped – thinking it either wasn’t open to the public or too expensive to attend, just like I originally thought. Well, turns out we’re all wrong. And guys, attending a polo match is SO MUCH fun, especially on a beautiful sunny day in the 805! Not to mention, it’s such a good excuse to dress up (and wear that big hat in true polo fashion).
My husband and I were lucky enough to sneak away, sans kids, for a little day date and we wanted to …

As avid DIY-ers, we have been loooving the new emergence of local artisans offering workshops on how to get crafty + creative in their own specialty.
One such artisan, Heather Brown from Brown & Co. Designs, has been offering brush lettering workshops that seem to sell out within hours of announcing a new one!
Lucky for us, we snagged two seats at her latest one, held at MadeWest Brewery in Ventura. Even on a Tuesday night, this workshop was completely …

Friendsgiving… Fakesgiving… whatever you decide to call it, we are now approaching our 8th Annual Fakesgiving Celebration! I know, right??
We’ve come a looong way since October 2010, the inaugural Fakesgiving celebration at my parents’ house with about 10 of us in attendance.
Now, we’ve hit around 75 adults + 15 kiddos, and host it in our own backyard! It has definitely morphed into something bigger and better than we’ve ever dreamed, and we absolutely love this tradition every year (even though we now need to …
Okay, sorry about that ridiculous title — I do love some alliteration…! 😉
Fall means all things PUMPKIN (and of course a few other things from our fall bucket list, am i right??). Sure, it’s cheaper to grab one from outside your favorite grocery store, but going to a pumpkin patch brings around a whole new level of nostalgia. Here are some of our favorites that are going on in the 805!

I’m sure you’ve seen those gorgeous macrame wall hangings on all of your fave ‘grammer accounts — and then you go to buy one, and you’re like, “hi, NOPE.”
Thank goodness for Jessica Needham, entrepreneur and girl boss of homeMADE Ventura! She is totally rocking this DIY craft that we now love, and taking the 805 by storm with her own macrame workshops! She invited us to stop by and give it a try this month… and now, we’re hooked. Our workshop was in the beautiful barn at Camarillo Ranch, and provided the prime environment for a beautiful summer Sunday.
