Newport beach fab retreat!

I had so much fun getting away for a week all by myself. Ok I was with my mom and dad in Newport Cal. at the Marriott. I did nothing but well babysit my mom and dad and boy that was hard let me tell you!!
 Every night when the tied was going out we would look for sea glass down at Crystal Cove.  Last year I found a small handful this year I had a huge baggie full.  Then when I left my mom said that it was all gone and their was no more small pile of rocks just sand.  Its amazing that different times of day and month really affect the tied and our sea glass obsession.
 I love Rogers floral and deco store. I could spend all day there smelling the flowers and looking at all the pretty things.  They were getting so mad that I was taking pictures with my phone.  they kept giving me dirty looks but I just loved the ideas and I know I wouldn't be able to remember them when I got home.

 Will boys ever grow up?

 If you look close you can see the sea lions, there were five of them and they were playing in the water splashing around they were so fun to watch.
 getting chocolate marshmallow malts at the shake spot atop crystal cove.
 all I can say is YUMM I love sea food and there is nothing better than fresh shrimp from the crab cooker!
 We also at Blue water.  It was the second best lobster roll I have ever had ( the first being on the Jersey shore).
 Love the Newport temple so beautiful and peaceful.  not to mention the 6 Bentley's in the parking lot, i guess really rich people know the Church is true too.

Valentines Party

 I love Valentines day!  I spent all day on Friday at the kids school doing Valentine's parties.  They were so cute passing out their valentines to each classmate.  We played games and ate sugar cookies you know the basics.  The funny thing this year is that I let the kids decorate their own valentine boxes.  Taylor had kissing stuffed animals on top of his and Brittons was a toilet that said Love Stinks.  So funny!  when I got to school i was amazed at all the creative moms out their who come up with some amazing boxes.  (Maybe next year)

 I don't do much decorating for Valentines day but I'm obsessed with coffee filter flowers and made a heart and a wreath for my deco this year.  I love white as you well know so this fit in so well with my living room!

 ok so you can't see but my gold silverware was a big stand out on the burlap table cloth I made.  just the right amount of sparkle, texture and early 90"s flatware! he he

Every year I host a  party for Christmas or Valentines day.  This year I had some fun neighbors over for dinner.  I love decorating and doing take home gifts.  So much fun.

we had chicken pillared and for dessert (along with the desert bar) we had chocolate souffles YUMM!  I was worried that they would fall but they were creamy and chocolaty. (ok 2 more min in the oven would have been a bit better).
I love photoshop!  and I love the way my valentine deco looks with my new turquoise deco this year!

Love that shot

I love my boys (I have 4) I love watching their sports watching them grow watching them improve.  I love how they are obsessed with what ever sport they are playing. They put their whole little beings into their passions.  what a great way to live your life.
