Wrapping Up Summer

Believe it or not, I am still here :)
Between our trip to Southern Cal for vacation, helping
my parents with their estate sale and packing them up to move,
getting the kiddos prepped and back to school...
I regretfully neglected the blogging world.
However, I'm getting into a new routine and it feels great~
Here are some highlights from the past two months...

We started our vacation in San Diego. This is La Jolla.

What's not to love about this?

This cute little general store is in Old Town San Diego.

Don't you just love the nostalgia these red shelves give the inside of the store?
The boys heading into a 'hot sauce' sampling heaven.
Chanelle and I hit the market.

Family snapshot at the San Diego Zoo.
Chanelle at the sting ray pool in Sea World.
We also took time to visit some college campuses. This is UCLA.

Also visited Balboa Park.

Keiton researched where we could learn and visit tributes to Jackie Robinson.
This was right across from City Hall. The other statue is of his brother.
Don't judge...I just had to go! We were so close, it would have
been a crime not to check it out in person.
A long fun filled day at Universal Studios.

Our sunset walk along the boardwalk at Mission Bay.


It was a perfect way to wrap up summer before their Senior and Freshman
year of high school. Just love these two!

Back home I began working on another hutch.
This is how it began...
And after a custom mix of paint colors...
This is how it turned out

We are really getting stocked up for Faded Elegance's
Anniversary Party~
Friday, September 27th

Come in your flapper's best! (not required)
Kimberly puts on a heck of a party :)

I'm headed to a show down in Olympia this weekend.
Hope to find some good junk and inspiration!
Have a wonderful week!
