Happy Easter!

My Lola, a Filipino term for grandmother, definitely didn’t fail to let me know she was upset that I couldn’t take her to church on Easter Sunday. She also encouraged going to a church near my home or work. Sorry, Lola. I only go to church to take you. For those not practicing their faith and are One Busy Bee like me, this post is for you.

Easter means spring break, the kids having time off from school and travel! The Fisherman’s Wharf was crazy busy this week and the wonderful weather was definitely a bonus. I work for a concierge company and this week I was at the California Welcome Center at Pier 39 and at The Argonaut, as usual. Both kept me busy! I enjoyed it. I love meeting folks from all over the world.

Here in San Francisco, we love to brunch both Saturday and Sunday. It’s just a thing and I love breakfast for lunch and dinner too. Don’t you? Sometimes I just want the basics of eggs over medium, crispy hash browns and bacon and buttery wheat toast to dip into my yolks and I wo…

#250KChallenge2018- Week 4

Doing a fitness challenge while on vacation? Normally this One Busy Bee is all about it! I hit the gym almost everyday aboard Holland America Line’s Oosterdam a couple of months ago. This time, not so good! But it’s about the bounce back! I don’t stay down for long and I tried to get back to it once I landed back in California. But here’s Week 4. It wasn’t pretty but it wasn’t a complete disaster. How’s every body else doing?
Monday Recovery from the night before took place and I wanted to get as much from our last day in Barcelona. We walked a few miles to the soccer stadium. Unfortunately, I missed the last game of the season that took place on Saturday. We then took a cab to La Ramblas. Court Court has never been. Our first stop was coffee. This restaurant had carbonara on the menu. Since our trip to Italy, I have never found a carbonara dish remotely close to it. We walked around a bit more and Court Court was not feeling well so we just went back to the AirBNB. We had dinner plan…

#250KChallenge2018 - Week 3

I’m writing this on a stationary bike and checked Twitter to see what week I was currently on! I didn’t know it was Week 4! That means I was slacking on writing up on Week 3 of the #250KChallenge2018 by BodyBuilding.com and Optimum Nutrition. So here you go! How is everyone else doing on this challenge?
Monday  Still in Mendocino, California with plans to do one more wedding venue visit with my Bride and Groom. But they were still sleeping, so I got up, took a shower, put Bevo in the car with me to hunt for breakfast. I called a place that had great reviews to see if they were dog friendly. Negative. We headed down the street anyways. 
There, we explored Fort Bragg. Look at how huge that tree is!

I got breakfast to go, picked up the Bride and Groom and headed out to Pacific Star Winery for wine tasting and meeting with the owner. It’s a steal! Ask me about booking your wedding here. I know, wine. Not really beneficial to this challenge. Should I mention we also stopped off at Navarro…
