All Around Foodie

Beautiful food is appetizing in part because of it's visual display. But it's always great when the food tastes at least as good as it looks. "Pretty nasty," food is not what I'm into.
I along with my husband recommend this resturant for the food and the ambiance. Finding great resturants is one of the many things my husband and I enjoy doing on our dates. Although we have vowed to be a lot more conscious of the amount we consume. Remember 2008 is the year for Balance. We find the best way to eat less and continue to enjoy the food is to share it, (YES!! in 4 and 5 star resturants) You will find they are accommodating, the chef can split the meal and bring it out on two separate plates. Here at 21 Oceanfront we did not share the main coarse but we should have. We slip up from time to time, but neither one of us could finish it. FYI, one time we went to a Coco's, it's a Denny's type resturant but better food and asked them to split the plate and they looked at us like we could not afford to be there, the breakfast we shared was $8.95). I'm not saying that it was easy to start requesting this, due to us wandering what people would think and breaking a habit is always hard. But after we got over ourselves we have found it to be a great way to loose weight without giving up what we enjoy, and the money we save is almost half because, sharing drinks is a bit much.

Located in Newport Beach inside of the Doryman’s Oceanfront Inn, 21 Oceanfront offers stunning views of the setting sun along with a romantic ambiance. We started our evening in the 21’s bar with Dirty Martini’s while enjoying the ocean view. From there we shared our dinner in the Wine Cellar. We began our dining experience with Maryland Crab Cakes and a cup of Lobster Bisque. Our main course consisted of the New Zealand Rack of Lamb and the Chicken Paillard. We finished the evening with Dessert and chocolate espressos.
21 Oceanfront offer great service, good food, and the beginnings of a wonderful night.

Balanced Life

My husband and I have made our theme for 2008 be, working toward a life that is in balance. Theme title is "The Balanced Life, mind, body and spirit." Out of that same thought process comes this blog. I will be covering subjects that I deal with in my daily life, mostly the good.....but with life you sometimes get lemons, so I'll be covering the bad also.... hopefully conveying how I have made Lemonade. My goal is to be an inspiration to all that visit. I believe that a life well lived is one that is shared. Friends, family and even strangers contribute to making us better. Choose to search for the good in all situations. I'm not saying I, myself is any Ms. Happy Go Lucky 24/7, but I am saying it's Ok to want to see, have and be the best. And I am pursuing Ms. Happy so that she can become a majority partner at all times. Part of what I think a balanced life entails is to be aware of everything, the good, bad and the ugly but to consciously seek the good. So here's to the best that life has to offer, even when the best come through adversity.

Get more out of life, reguardless...

Beauty can be found everywhere, that is if you look carefully. True beauty is a mix of old and new, of texture and smooth, the combining of things is what makes beauty. I do believe in the old saying, " you can't enjoy the sunshine without the rain." Also, "there is no up without a down," and" you don't know what a good day is without a few bad ones." So I say to myself that this is the year I seek to have more balance in my daily life. Not dwelling on the negative, not to be confused with not acknowledging that bad things may happen....but looking to seek the good (the beautiful) out of every experience. Meaning that we all must look to do our best no matter what others are doing or not doing. I choose to take this point of view knowing that I will be challanged....knowing that it won't be easy, change takes time and patients. I pledge to have a beautiful life. I challange all my readers to do the same. The above picture is beautiful for it's juxtaposition, of seemingly unrelateable things that somehow relate.
