Shine On With The Color Run!

By Erin

*Disclosure: I was offered complementary passes to The Color Run in my city, however I have always been a fan and supporter of The Color Run. All thoughts and opinions are my own.*

The Color Run

There’s a colorful, shiny, glittery event full of happiness coming to town that you won’t want to miss, The Color Run Shine Tour 2015. Not all that long ago, my good friend Melody and I decided to run in one to celebrate our birthdays as our birthdays are one day apart (Mine is May 3rd, hers is May 4th). We were birthday princesses, so of course we had to wear our tiaras. 😉  I love anything with a little bling, and if it’s something to get me outdoors and moving, then that’s even better! 😉

Wether you prefer to walk or run, The Color Run is bringing the community together to participate in the “Happiest 5k on the Planet”.  As the original paint race, they have created a completely new genre of running events that continues to grow exponentially. It is the single largest event series in the world, The Color Run has exploded with more than just color; with 300 events in 50+ countries in 2014.

So WHY should you enter?

I Love Color Runners

As of today, Summer is officially here! Just thought I’d post a few pictures honoring this time of fun in the sun, long days, and hot nights. I hope everyone is ready for lots of summer time fun! What are your favorite things to do during this fun time of year? It’s the best time to enjoy so many different outdoor activities. I hope to be posting some fun adventures that you can enjoy for yourself as well. Enjoy!

Summer 2014

There are so many fun things to do in the summer time! Where to start? The beaches, fairs, festivals, spas, pools, water parks, amusement parks, too many things to do to list here! It’s time for some much needed rest, relaxation, and lots of fun! I am looking forward to all the county fairs coming up and many beach days ahead.

Happy Summer

Beautiful summer blooms. I love the smell of all the beautiful flowers and roses during this time of year! These are a few from my own backyard!

Wine GrapesIt’s a great time for some wine tasting! 😉 No matter where you live, you are sure to find a winery or wine tasting room not too far from you.

Summer Margaritas

Drinks for a hot summer’s eve? Making some fun fruity drinks is always something I enjoy. Mango Margarita anyone?

Summer Time Fun

A Day at the Races at Santa Anita Park @SantaAnitaPark @ABRLive #GetintheGame

A Day at the Races at Santa Anita Park

By: Erin

Disclosure:  I was invited out to Santa Anita Park by America’s Best Racing to experience a fun day of horse racing on opening day of the fall meet.  I received lunch and a gift bag.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Santa Anita Park is a beautiful race track in Southern California and the stands are packed with young and enthusiastic fans. Host of the Breeders Cup every November, I had the wonderful opportunity  not too long ago to spend a day at the track in Santa Anita to celebrate the opening day of the fall meet. Being the horse crazy gal that I am, I could not pass a chance up of spending a day with some amazing and powerful horses. I spend a lot of time with these guys after their racing days are over, but don’t get to see them in action as often as I would like during their racing careers.

Average crowds of over 50,000 come to be seen at events at race tracks all over the country. It’s not just about the sport, it’s a lifestyle. Folks will dress to the nines for the occasion with the latest fashions. Friends enjoy the afternoon together while making some new ones along the way. You can enjoy a drink and a nice meal while cheering on the horses and making memories to last a lifetime. Making a winning bet on some of the finest horses in America will have you floating on cloud 9, even if you only win a dollar or two.

Here is a little peek into our special day at the track!

Santa Anita Park New Look

 The newly remodeled Santa Anita has a fresh new look inside in their bar and food court area. Very snazzy! Cheers! Just so you know, they make the BEST Mai Tai’s here! 😉 We all had them. I’d say it’s safe to say, that it was the drink of the day. There food was wonderful as well. I had a pasta bowl, and it was delicious.
