Black & White & Red All Over

I was a little sun burnt from the memorial weekend. But wearing my little black dress cheered me up.
I bought the shoes from Windsor and truly they hurt when I walk. Luckily I work in an office where I can sit at my desk all day. The dress is from Target and one of the most comfortable dresses I own. Next time I will be wearing this outfit with sandals!!! My eye glasses were necessary as I am nearsighted and I usually wear them on a daily basis.

ps the wind was insane and this location wasn't my favorite... but fun

Summer Summer Summer TIME!

Memorial Day kicked off summer for me. I went through my drawers to find my shorts and I only found jeans and khaki boring shorts. I was so simple last year and tried to stick with the simple plane jane summer style. This year I am going to amp up my style with some colored shorts and who wouldn't want that gorgeous Great Gatsby clutch from Kate Spade?

So San Francisco

This day was a great one. Not only was I with some pretty awesome girls; I was also in my favorite city. The night before was exhausting so we decided to go to some of our favorite places.
Which included everything on The Embarcadero!

When the photo booth is broken you need to improvise
Beer 39!
Pizza, Pizza, Pizza!
Bitter sweet goodbyes to the city. Especially when you're tired and sitting in a BART station.

Hats, Hats and more HATS!

I usually match every outfit with a hat. Im always disappointed when I'm unable to wear a hat... like every weekday. No hats allowed at the office... sad face! These are a few that I have found. Some are a little expensive but I have a few favorites from

San Francisco Giants Game...

What a great way to spend a bachelorette party. The Bride and her bridesmaids enjoyed an awesome game on Saturday. If you didn't watch the game... WE WON with Angel Pagan hitting it home! The afternoon consisted of Gilroy garlic fries and the Coca Cola slide! Plus we made our own signs for the bride "This girl is going going gone!" Truly we were exhausted by the end of the day but we still had more to come with that night... don't worry there will be more to come from this fabulous weekend!

    This was my weekend. How was yours?

    Usually every weekend is jammed packed with events and birthday parties. 
    This weekend we had it to ourselves!
    There was a wonderful enjoyment of being able to spend time with the family with out the weekday rush. 

    Tis the season for the Cherry Festival. In Linden, CA (where my husband grew up) they have the Cherry Festival every year. C & D where part of the cutest parade. C held her banner up high, 

    while Mr. D played his trumpet with pride. They were the cutest. 

    The weather was perfect, just enough shade under the orchard trees to fall asleep. 
    Sundays are best for the farmers markets. Our local farmers market is found in front of a Lowes. So after our grocery shopping of local organics we found our self in the lumber aisle. I always have an interest to make something found on Pinterest, and walking the aisles of Lowes just peaked my...interest. 
    The lumber is pricey but if you find a good price... grab it! 
    And once a month we stock up at Trader Joe's. Especially on the yummy Indian food!
    The weekend isn't complete without a visit to the park. Now this park was an older park. A park I used to visit when I was young. The original metal slide with wood stairs are still intact. 
    The only problem I have is: The Sand. For some reason I hate the yucky sand at local parks. 
    The weekend ended with movie night, and instead of doing the traditional popcorn we chose fruits. C & D love the mangoes and me and my hubs love the blackberries... I can eat them by the crate!
