Well, I take my words back on saying that its cooled down and fall has arrived. Mother Nature lied. I seem to forget how long these sunny days last. I mean, it’s almost there, with a cool morning but then it ends up being one scorcher of a day come mid-afternoon.
My mistake taking Alfie hiking on Tuesday when it was 34+C (I think it was in the 90’s if you’re in the Fahrenheit-speak). So the hike was cut short, but I think the little mister definitely enjoyed himself. He loves his car rides and now he’s started to pick up on the word “adventure”, and whenever I say it to him or my husband that I’ll be taking Alfie on an adventure, Alfie looks at me with excited eyes. I’ve also been getting quite a bit of good use out of my Mizuno Sayonara’s. Anyone want to see a review between the Wave Riders and the Sayonara’s I have? Thoughts?
But whenever hiking alone, I remove my wedding rings and don’t carry valuables with me. Pthf…never know! Creeps are everywhere man. I get sketched out, plus Alfie isn’t exactly a protector dog size, even though he’s a loud-mouth he will deter any weirdos with his loud barking lol. So I’ve seen these silicone wedding rings around the internet for a few years but didn’t think anything of it. Lucky Rings reached out to me and asked if Scott and I wanted to try them out. Honestly, they’re just that — silicone so they’re super inexpensive (and I got 7 colours to choose from lol) but handy to have around when you still want to wear something on your ring finger, but don’t want to wear the bling. If I was still into CrossFit (It’s too much $$$ here for my membership) I’d wear it to that too, since it’s bendy and won’t scratch or damage your real rings. Scott got a two-pack as well, but I’m not sure how often he’s going to wear them if we’re being completely honest! By the way, I wasn’t sponsored by any of the brands mentioned. I did receive product to try, but wasn’t required to blog about it. Thought I’d let you know!

I admit, I was a little stumped as to where to take Alfie the past 2 weeks for another POM Friday post, but I knew that Los Gatos was quite pretty and I hadn’t been there in a while (besides my regular trip to Blvd Coffee one of my fave coffee spots).
The first stop Alfie and I made was to Los Gatos Creek Trail, but when I pulled into one of the many entrances, I noticed there was a daily parking fee, so after taking a quick few photos, I swung around and drove away to explore the city a little more. While I don’t mind paying the parking fee, I knew I wouldn’t be there for very long and didn’t think it was worth it for 5-10 minutes.
Next stop on our afternoon adventure was to the Los Gatos Public Library. It’s nestled right in front of a woodsy area, so I actually walked around the grounds for a while, with Alfie (and of course getting him to pose for some photos), heeh!
I have a 2016 Mazda 3 hatch to review for the week (quite an update from my 2007 Mazda 3 hatch!) so expect more photos of it on here and on social over the next week, while I go cruisin’ around in ‘er! Some stylin.

I don’t trek to downtown San Jose very often, mainly because the parking meters cost a fortune for a measly 15 minutes, and when I do go down I tend to go to a spot where I can get validated parking if I spend so much at a certain store/restaurant. Which, was my plan for this Monday that just passed by. I wanted to return a filing case to MUJI and I
needed wanted more of their hexagon pens before they sold out of them for another year (which probably wasn’t a year, but it felt that long to be without my favourite pen!).
I brought Alfie along for the ride, and decided to take him out for his first downtown San Jose adventure. I stayed pretty much on the main street (I think it’s the main street, anyway) on Market.
