New Signature Cocktail: Subdued Excitement

by Lindy

I’ve invented a new signature cocktail inspired by Bellingham, Washington’s (my hometown) unofficial nickname, “The City of Subdued Excitement”. I’m almost, nearly, completely excited by my new concoction!

The Subdued Excitement cocktail is comprised of:

  • Kirkland Signature vodka from Costco (Seattle company)
  • Organic grapefruit juice
  • Frozen rainwater (preferably from the Great Northwest) in the form of ice cubes

The Subdued Excitement cocktail is simple, natural, outdoorsy and a little tart – just like Bellingham-sters like me!

Feel free to substitute organic apple juice for the grapefruit juice if it’s too exciting for you.

It’s perfect served in these 2 oz. red party cups because it wouldn’t be prudent to over-indulge. (Unless of course you’re not driving and you don’t have work in the morning.)

Earth Day Reflections

by Lindy

In celebration of Earth Day, I will remember and honor my roots. Bellingham, Washington – the hub of all things eco-friendly and natural.

Some of my fondest memories include the great outdoors of Washington. Lake Padden, Lake Whatcom, Whatcom Falls, Bellingham Bay, Lake Samish, Interurban Trail, Mount Baker and so much more. Outdoor recreation abounds. Shout out to the granolas of Fairhaven!

I do my part to nurture Mother Nature in Orange County by serving on the executive committee of the Newport Beach Chapter of Surfrider Foundation, enjoying the OC parks, trails and beaches. I reduce, reuse and recycle as a good citizen should. As a matter of fact, I recently bought a big bag of gently-used designer clothes at Laura’s House Resale Store in Lake Forest – a win for me, the charity and the environment.

Individuals can only do so much, but they should take small steps towards lessening their overall footprint so the generations to follow will have the chance to fall in love with the great outdoors too.

Check out this super fun Earth Day activity at the Muth Interpretive Center in Newport this Sunday: Earth Day at the Bay, 10 am – 4 pm.

Become a member of Surfrider Foundation to help protect our oceans, waves and beaches. Rise Above Plastics!

This post is dedicated to Joe Chorvat, my childhood friend’s husband who passed away April 16th at the age of 40. Joe left behind a 10 year-old son and countless friends and family who love and miss him deeply. May you soar in heaven Joe!

Bellingham: City of Subdued Excitement

by Lindy

I LOVE that my hometown of Bellingham, Washington is nicknamed the City of Subdued Excitement. It explains a lot…

It’s even on Wikipedia, so it must be true: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bellingham,_Washington.

Here is a quirky website showing the interesting character of Bellingham. Looks like the same dude has an album of the same name.

I’ve also recently discovered that an opportunist has built a website business – http://www.bellingham-subdued-excitement.com/ – to capitalize on it. But she’s not a Bellingham native; just a newbie so she doesn’t count.
