The [hand]Writing’s On The Wall {Brown & Co. Designs}

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 …

Father’s Day Recap: Biking in Ventura

Hope you all had a relaxing and refreshing Father’s Day weekend 🙂 It was Brett’s first Father’s Day as a new “dada” (as Graham calls him… ok he calls me that too sometimes, haha!), so I decided to take our little family north to Ventura for the day!

We loaded up our bikes and lathered on the sunscreen because hellooo did you see how beautiful it was yesterday?! There’s a free parking lot at the far end of Main Street, right near …

Five Friday Faves {This Week’s Edition}

Summer is starting to wrap up — but, as any 805-native knows, that hardly means the end of amazing weather, warm days, backyard barbecues, and balmy evenings.  Cram in some more summer fun before pumpkin-flavored-EVERYTHING starts rolling out!

1. MadeWest Brewing Company :: joining the ranks of my faaavorite breweries in the 805, MadeWest is hot on the scene.  Grab a generous 4oz sample size of any beer for only $2 [seriously!] with most full-size beers coming in at $3 and $4.

How To: Host a Beer + Bourbon Tasting Bash

My husband Brett turned 32 in January (??!), and for the second year in a row, our plans for FootGolf got rained out — boo!  C’mon, when does it ever rain here?!

With the stormy forecast looming in the near distance, I knew we had to switch horses — and fast.  With 4 days to spare, we created a birthday bash from two of Brett’s favorite things: beer + bourbon.

Here are some of our favorite details that we incorporated to pull the theme together:

Beer Blind Taste Testing

It’s simple: go to your local liquor mega-store (like Total Wines or BevMo), and pick out 6 different six-packs …

Enegren Brewing’s New Brewery Opening {local.events}

This weekend we stopped by the new brewery grand opening of Enegren Brewing Company in Moorpark and let me tell you — it was crazy! I could not believe how packed it was, and how awesome their new space is!  It seems huge compared to their last tasting room and it was absolutely full of people tasting new beers, hanging out with friends, listening to the live bands and enjoying some grub from food trucks.

A chill Sunday funday {LL805 lifestyle}

After church, us girls stopped by Trader Joe’s to grab some stuff for lunch. Have any of you been to Trader Joe’s recently and seen the influx of pumpkin everything? We have, and we are absolutely loving it.

Most importantly, however, we discovered the Kringle. Trader Joe's Kringle - LL805Trader Joe's Kringle - LL805

Since it was pumpkin-flavored, and since it hails from Wisconsin (my husband’s home state), we had to buy it.  DUH.  As we were checking out, the cashiers were all excited about the Kringle — our cashier even told …
