Adventures in Societial Anachronism

Over Memorial Day Weekend we attended Potrero War with our SCA group The Beggar’s Inn. I’ve been attending SCA events over the past several years, and our camp has evolved and grown considerably each year. For those of you not in the know SCA stands for the Society for Creative Anachronism, and is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th century Europe. These...

Monthly Must Haves: May

The month of May is almost over (seriously how did that happen?), and over Memorial Day weekend we’ll be off camping at an SCA event. Before we escape to another time period for a weekend, I wanted to share my favorite finds from this month! 1. Proatien Bowls My sister-in law Chelsea (who recently launched her fantastic healthy lifestyle vlog, Life with Chels) has been raving about how delicious and...

Moms & Mickey

I got to spend Mother’s Day with my parents in the Happiest Place on Earth! They live in Northern California but try to visit every couple of months, and our favorite way to spend our time together is at Disneyland. Nothing brings out the 31 year old child inside of me like noshing on a churro, getting soaked on Splash Mountain, and strolling down Main Street USA. My pass expired...

Last weekend we journeyed to the Renaissance Faire in Irwindale. Its a yearly pilgrimage for us and our friends, and fills the gap between our SCA camping events. Irwindale is notoriously hot during The Ren Faire months (April – May), but we lucked out and chose the coolest forecasted weekend to attend this year. Romping around in corsets and skirts doesn’t make keeping cool easy, but drinking copious amounts of...

Come On, I Lean.

. . .or my struggles with fitness and structural leg length discrepancy.  When we’re growing up we’re constantly told that we have something special about us. My something special, aside from saying hello to random strangers in supermarkets and singing Disney songs at the top of my lungs for anyone that would listen, was a sassy strut to my walk that friends and family liked to tease me about. Being a...

#Play4PP

Last International Women’s Day we Play(ed) for Planned Parenthood. Gamers from all across the WORLD banded together to raise funds for PP. Colleges held events, friends hosted parties, and streamers shared their gameplay on our Twitch channels. Together we raised over $50,000. ​I want to celebrate every single one of you who helped Play4PP happen. I have never been so proud to have helped create something, and so humbled by the support of...
