As a vegetarian, I can't wait for them to have their full menu, with portobello mushroom sandwich,Read More so I can try the place. Was very disappointed that their soft opening didn't include it, I keep checking the menu every time I walk by... Keeping fingers crossed they have it soon :)

I love shade plants especially azaleas and rhododendrons. In my front yard I have a long shady areaRead More planted with various azaleas and rhodies. My favorite is the Lavender Queen purple rhodie which fills a corner. I have taken the time to prune it so it looks really nice. Here's a picture.

Thanks for the great blog post, Adelle! I have been wanting to try a lot of these out myself so itRead More was nice to read about your experiences. My 5-year-old and I were just at Sonoma Chicken Coop last week, our "mommy-son date" and we had a good time-good food, good atmosphere and no wait (mommy's favorite!). Even better, we hit Rocket Fizz next, then Therapy (and let's not get into our trip to Psycho Donuts before we had even had lunch ... one word: bubble-wrap!) :) Can't wait to read about your next adventure in Campbell!

I recommend the Chicago-style "stuffed pizzas": Thick crust on bottom, then toppings (moreRead More like fillings), then a thin crust on top of that, with the sauce on the very top.
Mayra Flores de Marcotte May 16, 2012 at 06:47 am
So I ended up going there with Mountain View Patch editor Claudia Cruz after the Bunnies and BonnetsRead More Parade and ordered a thin crust, basil, chicken, fresh tomatoes and sundried tomatoes pizza. Let's just say there wasn't a slice left!

I've just started gardening myself and I love it! By the end of he day I feel satisfied...I'veRead More accomplished so much...planting new things in the earth, growing new things and its so good for your body. I've started a potted plant garden with my daughter and she loves watering and watching things grow...it's amazing!
Mayra Flores de Marcotte March 15, 2012 at 07:29 pm
Oh my gosh! I completely agree. I started our little garden last year and love it. Somehow, all theRead More frenetic buzzing and beeping of all of our techie toys fade when I'm digging in the dirt, pulling weeds. My son loves it too. We have a little herb garden as well as various peppers and, depending on how much time I've got, various squash. It really is relaxing and makes you feel accomplished after you cook a meal or brew some tea using what you've grown. :) Thanks for the great post Adelle!

Hear, hear! We recommend going around the insanity of cars trying to park a few feet closer to aRead More store and going directly to the garage, an oasis of calm with (usually) plentiful spaces available. Remember, walking is good for you!
Stephen Allen March 1, 2012 at 02:13 pm
Good Morning, Good points and advice here. I would like to add that I have often felt that theRead More Pruneyard parking lot and grounds in general are poorly designed. Like many others, it seems to be designed for cars, not pedestrians. My best suggestion is to leave the car at home if you can and walk or ride a bike there instead. If you live in Campbell, the Pruneyard is really not that far away for most people. I often walk there when I'm going to the Bank of the West. My biggest headache there is the parking for the bank and ATM. Not bad to park, but to leave ? Whew! The people just come whipping around that corner and often do not stop for anyone. Even if you are in the process of backing up and are halfway out of the space! I also want to add that those few parking spaces are for bank customers. I often see people parking there to go to Outback Steakhouse, therefore tying up the spaces for people going to the bank. Steve A.

Excellent points! Seems to me that everyone everywhere is in such a hurry that they forget about (orRead More just don't care about) anyone else. I've been cut off, flipped off, cursed off, etc - all with my little ones in the car. (Even by others with little ones in their cars!) Just like you said, if you are in that much of a hurry that you will put yourself or others in danger, perhaps you should work on your time management skills. You have to allow not only for drive time, but also for time to find parking where you are going. Be careful out there!
Mayra Flores de Marcotte February 24, 2012 at 02:00 pm
Loved this! It puts my mind at ease knowing that I'm not the only one that has to break up with hairRead More stylists ... and is anxious about it. Good to hear your story had a happy ending. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks y'all! Campbell MOPS meets tomorrow - come check it out!

I completely understand exactly what you're talking about! I have, um, interesting hair too and IRead More don't want to spend time I don't have styling it every morning so a good haircut is super important. I've gone through several stylists, each time feeling guilty for leaving them for another but not willing to go back after feeling unsatisfied. One left me with an asymmetrical bob [and not because I asked for one], another dyed my hair and left it looking almost green [once again, not because I wanted it green], another left the area and the last, well, I loved her but I just couldn't afford her. Fast forward to my current stylist and she's amazing! She cuts my hair at a cost that I don't feel utterly guilty over, leaves me with amazing tresses that stay put and don't need too much maintenance. Good luck!

I totally get it. I had a stylist that I went to for YEARS!! Then I realized that no matter howRead More styles changed and what I described to her I always seem to get the same hair style. Sure it was updated and changed slightly but a few days later I felt like the same old me. I kind of stylist shopped....jumping around when I saw a style on someone else that I liked....but it just never seemed to be a natural fit. Then I met Iris!!!! Iris rocks!!! And yes she said most of the same things to me as she did to you. I had started coloring my own hair a while back and when I asked her if I needed her to color it she told me I did a reasonable job and if she thought I needed some help she would let me know!! My daughter, who is a daredevil when it comes to hair, just loves her! We keep a stack of her cards available because we are always complimented on our hair. Breaking up is hard to do but sometimes so very necessary! YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!

I have very curly hair, and so I trust few people to cut it and have been going to the same stylistRead More for years, Michele at Sorelle Salon on Civic Center and 1st in downtown Campbell. She's amazing, and has become a good friend over the years! Even now that I live in Hayward, she is worth the drive! Kim at Sorelle is also amazing, and Lauryn Miller at Innovators cuts my mom as sister's hair and she is also fantastic. I'm all for stylist loyalty, but you are still a client and have the right to search for what you want!
