Insta-Friday 7/20/12

It's been a rough week...

Rough week = not many photos = :(

Oh well, we can't all be perfect.  So here is what I got.

I am linking up with Jeannette from Life Rearranged for Insta-Friday.

A not so fun weekend ended with a few drinks...well it tried :(

 A quick trip to Ikea for a super cool project in the works and I was met with construction.  Ikea was getting a facelift in the way of new paint.  Then walking inside and they were rearranging the display rooms.  It was kinda cool to see it all in motion and super motivational.

I had a few meetings this week.  This was a great part of my week.  Coffee Bean & Tea Leafs Pineapple drink blended.  So yummy!

My hubbs left Wednesday for Washington.  He is doing a lot of traveling this year for his company.  I was so sad to come home Wednesday night and walked into the bedroom.  Its been a lonely few days and still a few more to go.  He did send this pic the night he left...

He is having a great time!

Thats all this week.  Check back next week and hopefully I do a little better than just three measly photos.

Have a great weekend!

Insta-Friday 7/13/12

OK, so this week did not go by as fast as the others have.  Maybe it's because I took the week off from home projects and crafting.  I started my workout this week and I am still trying to get into a routine that works.

So linking up with Jeannette from Life Rearranged to share all my instagram photos for the week.

These beautifully bright colored flowers were for my mom.  It was her birthday last Friday.

Said mother is a bit of a light weight and only drank 1/4 of her alcoholic beverage.

This precious little girl also celebrated the year of her birth on Saturday at a perfectly themed Breakfast at Audrey's first birthday party.  Is she not the sweetest thing you have ever seen?

Sunday's have been pool days at the Hilton Waterfront Resort.  It was so nice to sit and relax and soak up a few reys.

McDonald's have seriously been updating their efficiency lately (or maybe not lately, it has been a while since I have eaten fast food).  Two lanes for the drive through, adding your cream and sugar to your coffee for you, and a special dispenser for you cup lids that allow for only one to be grabbed at a time.  Thanks for helping rid waste McDonald's.

1979 280SL Mercedes.  So fun to drive, especially with the top down ;)

Crazy sun days and crazy busy parking lots.  Not a good day to just a quick run to the grocery store.

The Bowers Museum, such a beautiful location for a wedding.

Jessica has been cleaning out her room this summer.  She went through all her clothes and weeded out everything that doesn't fit.  When she was younger her life was all about the Disney Princesses well now that she is a tweener (for those of you that are not hip to that term it is the between stage of a kid and a teenager) she is totally over it.  Now it's all about dolphins!  So riding her room of all things princess then donating everything, turned in to two large trash bags of clothes, pillows and stuffed animals.  Then many more other bags of miscellaneous items.

That was my week.  How was yours?  Do you link up with Jeannette for Insta-Friday.  I would love to hear from you...

Until next time.

Insta-Friday 7/6/12

I can't believe that it is Friday again.  Since starting this insta-friday weekly blog posting the weeks just seem to fly by.

I am linking up with Jeannette from Life Rearranged for Insta-Friday.

My hubby is great at gift giving!  I got this beautiful necklace for our anniversary.  I have worn it every day.  Jason is just trying to figure a way to tack on a "more" at the end.

I am so spoiled and received two gifts.  This one is for my right hand.   5 diamonds for 5 years.

Morning after wedding breakfast at the Sugar Shack in Huntington Beach.  It was a busy day.

Then it was fun in the sun at the pool at the Waterfront Hilton in Huntington Beach drinking Surf Heros getting out tan.

 Tuesday night, the city of La Mirada had a 3rd of July celebration (they always have it the night before the 4th).  There are so many people that make their way to the park for all the activities.  This year they had a few food trucks.  This is the one I chose and the Hawaiian chicken sliders were to die for.

About 9:15 its lights out at the park and the glow sticks shine through and we know the firework display is almost here.

The show was amazing.  I just love watching fireworks.  Our spot this year wasn't too great.  Next year we will move away from the trees.  But really there was not a bad view anywhere.

It was a real layed back 4th.  Brunch at our favorite spot then off to the movies.  Before a little shopping then dinner.  We raced home just in time for our streets annual block party firework display.  Seriously it goes off at our house!

I love that our neighbors all come out and watch the firework show.  Everyone buys fireworks and share in the fun.

Now, these ones we did not have but they were shooting off all around us.

Since I shared my anniversary gifts I thought it only appropriate to show off my husbands gift.  Its a tungsten carbide right with carbon fiber inlay.  He loves it and I am so happy.

That's all for this week.  Check back next Friday for more.  Have a great weekend all!
