AJ Spurs is great for families and steaks

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Saturday, May 29, 2021, In : Restaurants 
I had been eyeing AJ Spurs off the 101 highway exit in Grover Beach for years but just never had the opportunity to dine there. It's pricey and like a type of place for a special occasion. Earlier this month, we've finally went!

We've actually dined at the AJ Spurs in Buellton before we dined at this Grover Beach location. The decor is similar but I feel like maybe this place feels much bigger! The parking situation is much easier.

Staycation at La Quinta Inn in San Luis Obispo Downtown and Dinner at 1865 Craft House

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, In : Hotel 
We recently did a staycation at La Quinta in downtown SLO. I just refer it as La Quinta but the full name of this hotel is La Quinta Inn & Suites by Wyndham San Luis Obispo Downtown.

It was a short 17 hour staycation because we wanted to be able to use our 1865 Craft House & Kitchen gift card that we've been hoarding during the pandemic and since it's located right next door from the hotel, we decided to have a relaxing tourist experience as locals as well. We're so glad we did it. My family r...

Second Pfizer Vaccine Shot Gave Me the Chills and Headaches

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Sunday, May 9, 2021, In : Coronavirus 
A couple of my friends had both shots of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine and they told me that besides a sore arm, they didn't have any other symptoms. I wasn't so lucky.

Yesterday morning, I went to my appointment to get my second Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine. I felt great until maybe 8 hours later, my left arm (where they gave me the shot) started getting sore. No big deal. I felt like that was very bearable. I went to bed and then, the next morning, I felt more than just a sore arm. I got the chil...

Playing Shop Play Win Monopoly with VONS

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Friday, May 7, 2021, In : Monopoly 
Every year, I always look forward to playing Shop, Play, Win Monopoly through my local VONS. Other grocery stores like Albertsons, Tom Thumb and probably about a dozen others also participate around the U.S. This year, my store isn't doing the paper game board so everything can be claimed online. I like it better this way because I don't have to lick anything this time because they were like stamps before.

Things You Can Win
I really enjoy playing Shop, Play, Win to win freebies. I'd win free...
