We can’t believe it’s already September (although not gonna lie, we love fall and can’t wait for pumpkin-everything to take over) — and on top of it, it’s Labor Day weekend! Which hopefully means most of you have an extra long weekend to enjoy 🙂 Plus, we’ve got a great Five Friday Faves for you today. Enjoy!
1. Stonehaus: Your favorite place to grab some wine (or beer) and enjoy their amazing patio is hosting a Labor Day BBQ from 12-6pm. Oh, and they’re having a Bocce Ball starting at 2pm which is sure to be entertaining! For more info check out their facebook event page here.2. Malibu Kiwanis Chili Cook-off: The 34th annual Chili Cook-off, Carnival and Fair runs from September 4th-7th and is full of chili (duh), loads of live bands, carnival rides and games, and more! For additional information be sure to check out their website here.
3. Thousand Oaks Summer Concert in the Park Series: If you haven’t gone to one of the many live outdoor concerts yet this summer, this is your chance! This Monday, The Who Show will be performing at Conejo Community Park starting at 5pm. The concert is free (yippee!) and there will be food for purchase. But first, read Nicole’s blog post for tips & tricks for outdoor entertainment and you’ll be set. For more info check out Conejo Recreation and Parks event page here.4. DIY Simple & Fresh BBQ side dish: If you’re going to a BBQ this weekend or hosting your own, we’ve got an easy and healthy recipe for you thanks to Paper & Stitch. This delicious Watermelon and Feta Salad side dish is super easy to make (always a plus) and Tanisha made it recently for a BBQ and it definitely was a crowd pleaser.
5. Just Go Left: Our friend and fellow blogger, Ashten, just launched her new adorable blog Just Go Left ! We love her blog’s premise of remembering to choose joy daily. It is such a great reminder, especially around this time of year when things can begin to get stressful and overwhelming. Plus, our friend and fellow 805-er, Nicole Hagy, is featured on the blog and focuses on healthy living, great workouts, healthy recipes, fitness tips, and more. Make sure to check it out and drop a line to Ashten & Nicole! 🙂
We hope you all have a safe and fun Labor Day Weekend and of course that you enjoy that extra day off!
