The view from my living room was spectacular on Friday while doing some last minute work before the long weekend.
My wheels for the weekend. Our 1985 Volkswagon Westfalia accompanied us to the dessert to meet up with some family.
After hours of playing with his cousins Thomas needed a good nap. I must admit I did too. We cuddled up for an hour or so in the van. It was so nice and quiet.

Lastly a nice late afternoon drive down the coast was the perfect end to a wonderful weekend.
My mini man is the most wonderful, brightest little piece of my life. I simply could not love him more.
p.s. the movie was good too
~ Tonight is Laguna’s Annual hospitality night. Which is one of the greatest nights for this little town. Santa rides through downtown to city hall to light the willow tree, all the stores stay open and offer drinks and treats, kids line up to see santa and explore the candy baron. Overall it is one of the town’s best traditions, for all ages. I remember in junior high this is the night when your crush would ask you to meet them at Jonny Rockets to share a milkshake. Ah the nostalgia.
Tonight is extra special because our very own Laguna Beach High School Football team is up against our longtime CDM rival in the CIF semifinals. Needless to say tomorrow has got spirit for this wonderful little town of ours and my family and I plan to revel in it.
~ Next is some fun wedding crafting and getting ready for a meeting with our wedding planner! Here is a inspiration board I threw together…
~ Lastly, a fun weekend look I put together. I am now shopping for the perfect leather jacket… if only I looked good in black…
Bonne Weekend my loves!
p.s. who wants to braid my hair this way?
As Thomas starts his first day of Pre-K, I am feeling slightly sullen. I am totally excited for him and all of the fun adventures this new year will bring. But I cannot help but to feel like time is taking advantage of us. He is growing so fast it feels like just yesterday he spend 8 hours a day sleeping on my chest only whinning when he was hungry. And here we are, Pre-K. Your parents always tell you that time flies but it’s never until you are dying for more time with that little one in your life when you truly understand how precious it all is. It’s like being in love but good and better.
So I as I walk my sweet little bit of everything into his first day of Pre-K I am so thankful for all the time we have had together and look forward to all of the wonderful adventures to come.
My heart just bursts.
My good friend Amanda had her god-daughter in town over the Fourth of July Holiday and I was lucky enough to take them all out for a trolley ride down to the Sawdust. Her good friends snapped this picture of Thomas and I, and I just felt so lucky that this moment was captured.
We had such a wonderful time with our friends and Thomas was so awesome. : )
swim in the ocean, build a sandcastle, watch fireworks, BBQ, take a road trip, celebrate life . . .
Honestly, that is too cute.
My wonderful friend Amanda had Thomas and Matt over to her and her Husband’s home while I was gone. Matt and Thomas had told me she put on a little scavenger hunt and I was hoping Amanda would blog about it, and she did.

Thanks love! You’re the best!
I am so envious of this little boys party it is almost sad.
Brought to us by the wonderful Amy Atlas via Lucie Easterwood. Who said most the of decorations came from her Son’s room. I LOVE the vintage feel and accessories. This would be such a fun DIY party.
Thomas will be so excited to see these…
Via Meri Meri which has EVERYTHING for parties. Seriously everything.
