Taking A Break

Hi all!

Usually I’ve never announced my small absences, but this time I felt it was needed. I may around elsewhere on the web, but due to some personal issues I need to take a break. I love my readers and I’m so thankful for you all who stop in to read. I will be back soon, and hopefully back with more recipes and DIY projects.

Thanks in advance for understanding.
Until next time…

Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday! Summer Loving

Hi All!

It’s Wednesday, and time for “Oh, How Pinteresting  Wednesday” with Michelle over at The Vintage Apple.  I know I have been an awful blogger!  I missed blogging last week altogether.  But Pinteresting Wednesday is one of my favs, and tomorrow I’ll have an album review for singer/songwriter Nick Gill’s new album Waves Are Only Water.  As for today I thought I’d go with a summer loving theme, just a few things that remind me of summer.  Although I’m not loving this heat so much right now.  I love the fashion summer brings, the beach, the cold drinks, and good times.  But living in Cali, especially the area I’m in, the heat is no joke.  110 today with a low of 80, really?  I know some of you are in those humid states, and I feel for y’all!  Well enough about the heat, let’s get to those pins.

Lake time and Magic Mike!

Hi All!

I’ve been MIA for a little while.  I’m a little bummed, I missed “Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday” again!  The past week has been pretty fun, and just a bit crazy.  Last weekend my husband decided that he wanted to go to the lake.  I know some of you may not understand, because you’re thinking “The lake?  That’s awesome!”  And I’m right there with you, I love being outdoorsy so the lake was a great idea.  But my hubby is not the outdoor lover that I am.  So I jumped all over the fact that he wanted to go relax.  I went and bought an inflatable 2 person boat, I made sure we had drinks and food, and of course sunscreen.

  

For me the sunscreen worked great, but for my husband not so much.  The next day the front half of him looked a bit like a tomato.  It’s taken almost a week, but he is just about back to normal.  Yay for me because I haven’t been able to really hug him since Sunday!  But now we’re almost to a new weekend, and I plan on kicking it off right.  And that is where a girls night comes into play along with these men…

Yes…tonight my friends and I will spend a nice evening out, having dinner and watching Channing Tatum & cast as strippers in Magic Mike.  Believe me when I say I have never, and probably never will see a male stripper personally.  It really does not appeal to me.  But I will make an exception for this because…well…it’s Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer, and Joe Manganiello.  Love all of them separately, and together I’m sure it’s going to be great.  I’ve even sent my friend and cousin “Chan-A-Grams.”  Yeah, sounds awful right?  You should check it out, even if you don’t send them to anyone.  Just preview them and enjoy!  Seriously, I have not been this excited to go to the movies in a little while.  This is definitely one of those “guilty pleasure” type of movies, and I’m okay with that.

Is anyone planning a girls night, or going to see Magic Mike this weekend?  Hope you all have a great weekend!

Road Trip and Family Time!

Hi All!

It’s the start of another week!  Hope you all had a great weekend.  I know for some these past few weeks have been filled with graduations, and lots of parties.  I’ve had friends and cousins graduate over the last couple weeks.  Even this weekend the family packed up for a little weekend getaway to attend my cousin’s grad party.  I had the pleasure of making the trip with my aunt, and that is always fun!  You never know what to expect with her.  I took a few pics over the weekend with my phone, even though I had TWO fully charged cameras in my purse.  It was a great weekend filled with laughs and loads of family time.  Instagram was a hit with my family this weekend, with several of us using it to capture the good times.  So I thought I’d share just a few of the pics that my family and I took this weekend.

       

            So my weekend started with this…

      

      

                                                                                                                                                             And ended with this…

So after this weekend, it made me realize that maybe I should start a link up!  And I’m thinking that next week will be it’s start.  Working title, “What’d Ya Snap? Monday” or “What’d Ya Pic? Monday.”  Photos will be based on what you took during the weekend, only using Instagram, Hipstamatic, or any other phone based app you use.  So what do you think?  Let me know in a comment.

Until next time…
