Summer Events in Chula Vista

“Summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to quiet people. For those few months, you’re not required to be who everyone thinks you are, and that cut-grass smell in the air and the chance to dive into the deep end of a pool give you a courage you don’t have the rest of the year. You can be grateful and easy, with no eyes on you, and no past. Summer just opens the door and lets you out.”
―Deb Caletti, Honey, Baby, Sweetheart

Start Your Summer at Casalago Eastlake

It is easy to forget now, how effervescent and free we all felt that summer. Everything fades: the shimmer of gold over White Cove; the laughter in the night air; the lavender early morning light on the faces of skyscrapers, which had suddenly become so heroically tall. Every dawn seemed to promise fresh miracles, among other joys that are in short supply these days.”
―Anna Godbersen, Bright Young Things

Celebrate Memorial Day in Chula Vista

“Finally, I wish to remember the millions of Allied servicemen and prisoners of war who lived the story of the Second World War. Many of these men never came home; many others returned bearing emotional and physical scars that would stay with them for the rest of their lives. I come away from this book with the deepest appreciation for what these men endured, and what they sacrificed, for the good of humanity.”- Laura Hillenbrand

Resolution Tips to Organize Your Apartment

resolutionThe dawn of a new year means that it’s time for a New Year’s resolution. From losing weight to eating healthier, there are plenty of popular resolutions that might be on your mind. One resolution that’s easy to forget comes down to organizing your home. If you want a more organized home in 2018, here are a few helpful resolution tips.

 

Tackle “Problem Areas” First

So there’s always a pile of shoes in front of the door. Or maybe there’s that one drawer that holds all of the junk mail. Every home has one. You can take the first steps to a more organized home by tackling these areas first. The important thing to remember, however, is to focus on one “problem area” at a time. Maybe you only have time to do one bookshelf. That’s okay! Keep it manageable by focusing on one part of your home.

 

Get Rid and Donate

One of the best ways to declutter is to start getting rid of things you no longer need. Donate clothes you no longer wear. Check the expiration dates in the fridge and trash food items that are no good. You can get closer to a cleaner home when you start focusing on the essentials.

Simple Ways to Cut the Calories This Thanksgiving

caloriesCalories can add up, especially when it comes to Thanksgiving. After all, it’s the one holiday when we’re meant to gather with our friends and family for some delicious food. This may be good news for our taste buds, but perhaps not for our waistlines. You don’t have to skip your favorite foods, though. Smart, healthy choices are easy when you arrive at dinner prepared. Here are a few tips for keeping sticking to a low-calorie meal.

 

When it Comes to Turkey, Stick with White Meat

Opt for the white turkey breast, rather than dark turkey meat like the thigh. You’ll save roughly 50 calories. Turkey breast has been known for being a great source of lean protein, too.

 

When it Comes to Casseroles, Make it with Green Beans

Green bean casserole is a holiday favorite, but it’s actually one of the lighter casseroles you can add to your array of side dishes. Plus, green beans are already low in calories and provide plenty of vitamins and minerals. Mix in some creamy mushroom soup and crispy fried onions and you have a winner.

 

When it Comes to Pie, Pumpkin is a Great Choice

If you’re debating between apple and pumpkin pie, you’re better off going with the pumpkin. One reason is that apple pie recipes usually call for double the crust. We won’t blame you if you truly want that slice of apple pie, though. Go for whipped toppings instead of the traditional vanilla ice cream served on top.
