Holy crud! It’s that time again…my birthday. Where did this year go? The first week of July is arguably my very favorite time of the year. Warm weather, barbeques, beach days, surfing, riding bikes, longer daylight hours, ice cream….I could go on and on. And I love the 4th of July. It’s like my birthday kickoff party!
I had SWORE last year that our kiddo wasn’t going to get a big birthday party until she was 10. Especially since her last one was so much work. But alas, I couldn’t let her down. It’s difficult when every single kid she knows has a major party for their birthday…every. single. year. What is that all about anyway?
So I’m planning a little something this weekend for her and a few close friends. I’ll be sure to share that with you all next week. Since Ellie and I share a birthday, I am usually left to celebrate on another day. The other half and I are going to take a little trip up to Paso Robles in a few weekends to wine taste and visit with some family. We’ll do my celebrating then. No biggie for me…wine..glorious wine! And since it’s my birthday week I’ve put together a little collection of items that are on my wish list.
Now that the water is at a temperature I can handle, I will be shedding the full wetsuit. I am really in need of some cute warm water surf gear and this J.Crew collaboration with Pret a Surf is fabulous. Rash Guard and Board Shorts
I’m a HUGE…HUGE….HUGE Beatles fan. I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned that on the blog before, but I’d be surprised if I haven’t. In any case, I ran across this awesome sign from Sugarboo and I am obsessed! Antiqued Sign
I am need of a cute, more casual clutch to go with some of my summery outfits. This Clutch fits the bill perfectly! It appears to be really well made too.
There is nothing better than a bright orangy-coral. I love the color on my skin. This Essie polish is a pretty summertime look. Nailpolish
I wear sandals a lot. NO. JOKE. I’m a So Cal girl afterall! I wear them with everything too…shorts, jeans, dresses..you name it. I’ve been looking for a dressier pair to go with some of my more flowy skirts and dresses. These Sandals are the perfect mix of dressy, casual and Bohemian. I love them!
Recently I gave our guest bath a slight makeover. I’ll be sharing that with you all soon. I’m thinking a pair of Fouta Towels would look really nice in the room. But I also kinda want them for the beach. I’m conflicted. I think I’ll need a few pairs.
Be back soon!
Isn’t she pretty
Truly the angel’s best
Boy, I’m so happy
We have been heaven blessed
I can’t believe what God has done
Through us he’s given life to one
But isn’t she lovely made from love
I’m so very blessed to have given birth on my birthday, to the most wonderful thing that has ever happened to me! Ellie Victoria you amaze me everyday how much you are growing and learning. Boy…did 5 years go fast! My little chubbers is now a funny, curious, intelligent and thoughtful little lady.
Happy birthday my love.
Hope you had a fabulous fun filled weekend too! Any day now Southern California MIGHT get Summer weather. It rained on our date night Saturday….go figure.
Three years ago today I was blessed with the one thing I really started to think I would never have in my life…my little girl. I was convinced I would 1) never get married and 2) never have children. Seriously…I was NOT finding any man worth marriage back in those days! But on July 6, 2007 I popped out this little cutie who continues to bless my life and make it more worth while everyday.
