Street Food Finds in SLO

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Friday, June 21, 2019,
There is just something really refreshing about street food that makes eating out so exciting. Although street food is illegal around here, like you know bringing out your pots of food and selling it on the corner of a street type, the many city-run farmers markets around San Luis Obispo area and the authentic little restaurant shacks are very close to it! You get to eat out on the streets or buy it and take it home while it's still piping hot. Here some of the great street food finds that we...

A new hobby that I picked up after I became a mom is finding old furniture and turning them into newly painted gems. I've experimented with spray paint and hand paint but now, I'm sticking to just hand painting because you have better control and it's less wasteful and more environmentally-friendly.

I found this faded brown nightstand on the curb after someone posted it on craigslist.org for free. They didn't ask me to contact them so it was a first come, first serve situation and provided an ...

Charles Paddock Zoo

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Thursday, June 6, 2019,
Charles Paddock Zoo in Atascadero, California is the only zoo in San Luis Obispo county.

When you walk through the entrance of the zoo, you'll immediately find the pretty pink flamingos to your left!

If you plan on going to this zoo more th...
