    Today is a special Friday since I am turning 30! Last night at midnight I woke up to singing, sparklers and huge signs saying Happy Birthday–my family never ceases to amaze me! Have a great 4th!

    Got my Hula Praise on Saturday, church on Sunday and we’re going to the Dodgers game on Monday, being a long weekend. :) That’s where we’ll see our fireworks for 4th of July. Love pics of your family best.

  7. We’re leaving for our family/10th anniversary vacation up the East Coast…Providence, Cape Cod, Boston, Maine and New Hampshire. I cant wait for some down time on the beach and some amazing New England cuisine. The girls cant wait for the wave pool & water slides at one of our hotels:)
    Right now instead of packing we’re finishing up the job on our front porch. Its been such a long week out there but the end result will be so worth it. I cant wait to relax on a porch swing when we get home:)

    Have you read the book, Mr. Popper’s Penguins with your boys? It is so fun. I loved it when I was a kid too. We actually have the same plan, movie and fun with friends for the 4th!

    Love the ladybug/fingers shot. Weekend=picking up big kid from camp and packing again for big kid to leave for another camp.

    I just read Mr. Popper’s Penguins with my soon-to-be seven yr. old! She loved it as much as my students used to when I read it every year as a teacher. We saw the movie last weekend and it was cute. Not much like the book, but a modern take on it I suppose. Jim Carrey was hysterical as always and she loved the penguins and all of their antics. Have fun!

    Hi Lisa, I had planned to do loads of gardening this weekend but on Thursday night I broke the base of one of my toes in my left foot (had a contretemp in the dark with an oil coil heater.. OUCH) so I am relegated to sitting a lot and using a crutch to help me walk. Sigh… On the bright side (there always is one if you look hard enough), I get to do some art! Smiles..

    Just bought one of your necklaces (family with mason jar) for my future daughter in law for her birthday next week, she will love it. I bought it at Hands in SLO, after going to Ruby Rose (buying a table and huge frame) and having lunch at Sally Loo’s (and taking coffee’s back for Stephanie). Love the connection all of you have. Just wanted you to know

    We just cut up a pineapple just now! :)

    I read Mr. Popper’s Penguins to my four kids this year. They LOVED it. We haven’t seen the movie, but from all the reviews, besides the title, not much is the same. :( WHY do they have to do that with books?! I think some of the thematic elements are over my kids’ heads– ages 3, 3, 4, and 5.

    My plans for the weekend include going in and getting my hair flat-ironed. (Lisa, do you ever straighten your hair? My hair is even more kinky than yours (I’m Mixed Chick girl), and I love getting it flat-ironed! lol)

    Celebrating my cousin’s 40th b-day at the Grad for Big Chill. Yea!!!! LOL

    Love following your blog! I’m a coffee addict too. Completely out of coffee so ran out first thing this morning for my Starbucks bag of coffee and a blueberry muffin :) now the weekend can begin. Heading to the pool with my book club book “Men and Dogs”. Have a great weekend.

  18. Sleepover for my son at his cousin’s house tomorrow night and dinner and a movie for The Man and me. Then 4th festivities on Monday. Loooove this holiday weekend.
