This is paper. The whole store was full of wonderful bright colored pieces of paper. I wanted every single piece, but have no idea what I would do with all of them. So I took a picture. Perhaps I will get inspired.

I am participating in August Break that is rapidly coming to an end.

The Return

On the last day here with my mom we drove back to Coronado for an item that just couldn't be lived without. It was a gorgeous, fantastic, wonderful day.

On a side note I recommend stopping in at Moo Time for a snack. Fab ice cream.

I am participating in August Break. Check it out.

Long Walks on the Beach

Last night my mom and I strolled along the waters edge, getting our feet good and sandy and watched the paddle boarders, wind surfers and kids playing in the waves. We completed our evening with some good Mexican food and I happened to come across a skinny margarita that needed a friend. Ole!


I am participating in August Break and it's ending too soon!

Summer Drinks

I love having parties and I love drink stations with themes. This one was lemonade, ice tea and the option to spike it (or not) with either sweet tea vodka or regular vodka. Yum!

Pick your poison.
I am participating in August Break. Enjoy.

Sea Lioned

The noise, the fights and the laziness and the blubber. It's like Sunday at my house, but with sea lions.

Dragon Tree

Over 100 years old and still going strong.
Seriously it's called the Dragon Tree on Coronado Island

I am participating in August Break, how relaxing.

Going to the Flea

Yesterday I went to the Long Beach Antique Market which is filled with oodles of awesome things. This one however scares the crap out of me.

He reminds me of the Crypt Keeper, but with more flesh.

I am participating in August Break and love the pictures we are all taking!

Three dolphins and a few birds

You can't see the dolphins in either shot, but while randomly stopping to check out the water in Newport Beach we were greeted by three dolphins playing in the waves. It was a lovely way to start the evening.

I am participating in August Break. Check out all the others too!

Stop Looking at Me

This is a child's stuffed animal that is 30% off. I felt his eyes on me the whole time I was in the store, which is decidedly not cool. I imagine he would also give your children nightmare's like the clown in Poltergeist the movie except maybe not try and kill you.

I am waiting for him to be 75% off because I am pretty sure he needs to live in my guest bedroom...with the door closed of course.

Creeping me out since yesterday

I am participating in August Break and how fun it is.

Lawn Bowling

I had no idea it existed. I also had no idea there was a private club and you had to wear all white. Now I know.

I am participating in the August Break. Super fun stuff.

So many pretty colors. Which one needs to come home with me?

I am participating in August Break which is totally awesome.

As Tall as

I was walking along the streets in La Jolla and noticed this bush of cacti was as taller than me. Plus it was just kinda cool.

I am participating in August Break and you should totally check out all the other participants.

August Break

August Break 2012

So I have been a little behind and didn't start this on time, but really when have I really been on time and on track? So today officially starts the August Break which will consist of a photo a day and maybe a few words of wisdom or at least an explanation, but maybe not. Either way hopefully we will get some good photos. So here we go.

My morning break
This is where I get to sit, relax and take in my morning coffee. It's lovely, peaceful and occasionally I get to say hello to a dog on it's morning walk. Pretty darn sweet.

Surface of the Sun

I could be just a giant wimp, but I like to think people in the Southwest who tell themselves it's a dry heat so it's much more tolerable than when humid, are just nuts. It's similar to what people in the Northwest say about how the grey and rain are worth the 3 weeks of beautiful weather (it is amazing). All true, BUT it's still 99 degrees out at 10pm or you haven't seen the sun since June. Here's the thing if you feel like you have to justify why you are living somewhere it's time to move. Or stay, but stop pretending like I didn't just sweat off an entire dress size while talking on the phone last night, because I have no phone reception in my air conditioned room. Oh did I mention I am in Arizona? Well I am and it's hot out. Even at night.

So with that in mind I thought I would get myself in the mood for a lovely Friday with hotter than hell temps with a little Len, Steal my Sunshine. I like to share as well. 

Hope your Friday is a little cooler than mine and that you have a fantastic weekend.

Well I have done it. I ordered a juice cleanse. With the large amount of travel I have been doing my eating habits have been all over the place. I want to get back to a more fresh and healthy base and a juice cleanse is a great way for me to get started. So I took the plunge and ordered up some fresh, raw juice.

I ended up ordering the Blueprint Cleanse, foundation level 3 day. I chose Blueprint because it has been recommend by so many blogger and online 'friends' that it seemed like the obvious choice for me. The foundation level has 6 juices that you drink throughout the day; three green juices, P.A.M. (pineapple, apple, mint. My hands down favorite), lemon cayenne and a cashew milk. All of the juices are pretty tasty, but if I had to pick one I wasn't a super fan of it would the cashew milk. This could be because I am not a fan of milk cow, goat, almond, soy, rice or whatever so that could be part of it, but the cashew milk is still totally drinkable.

Today is day two and I am feeling pretty good. I have a bit of a headache due to the caffeine withdrawal, but I can have a half cup of coffee if I really want. I can even add the cashew milk to it if I am feeling the need for a cream taste. Other than that I have plenty of energy and will be heading out for a run shortly. Overall so far so good. I don't even miss solids foods yet.

Now I just have to pack for my trip to Arizona (aka surface of the sun hot). Sounds fun yes?
