Today is the longest day of the year!! 😎Woke up this morning to a pretty cloudy/overcast day in SB. We call this “June gloom” haha. Hopefully it will all burn off by this afternoon and we get some sunshine!
SB is very into parades and celebrations of any kind. Check out the Summer Solstice Celebrations that will be happening this weekend! Sadly we will be out of town (again…we’ve been SO busy), but love all the festivities of SB. Here are some other fun/interesting articles about Summer Solstice: Traditions Around the World and Summer Solstice isn’t just about weather – it’s also about romance.
Hope you all are having a great week and get a chance to be outside and enjoy the longest day of the year!!
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
I feel so LUCKY to call this amazing guy my DAD! 👔👨🏻
I seriously can’t imagine life without my Dad. He’s simply the greatest and has taught me so much about life. Mostly to always have FUN, follow your dreams, never give up and to love baseball. Wishing you have a fabulous day. Ari and I are so very lucky to have you as our Dad!
THANK YOU for everything you’ve done and continue to do for me and our family. I know my Dad will always be my Dad, but I’m sooo looking forward to seeing him in a new role as GRANDPA come August!
I ❤ you Daddy-O!
I also wanted to wish a very Happy Father’s Day to all the other Dads out there! Many of my girlfriends have found amazing men to share their lives with and now I get to see these guys become even more amazing as Dads. You all are rocking this whole parenthood thing. Keep it up.
Of course I also want to wish a very Happy Father’s Day To-Be to my hubby! August is quickly approaching and I can’t wait to see you as a DAD! Baby girl is beyond lucky to have you as her Dad and I’m really looking forward to this parenthood adventure with you. 💕
Have a GREAT day everyone!
That’s right folks we are headed to TEXAS!
The hubby and I are off on a crazy Texas road trip to see my favorite band of all time, Dave Matthews Band. We’ve never seen the start of their summer tour before (usually we see the CA shows at the very end of the tour) and are beyond excited to attend the very first TWO shows of the summer tour! Waaaahoooo!
I’ve been a huge DMB fan and going to their concerts since I was in high school…probably circa 2001 or 2002. Looking back on all those years and concerts I don’t think I have missed a summer tour yet! There may have been a few summers when they didn’t tour, but outside of that I have made it every summer. We’ve mostly seen shows all over CA but are excited to add Texas to our list of out of state concerts (saw them in Vegas at the MGM Grand before).
I feel sort of like a DMB groupie by following them through Texas for two shows 😉 🙂 but I am pretty ecstatic for this trip! Our great adventure is going to take us from Austin — Houston — The Woodlands — Dallas — Waco — Austin. Below is our route hahahaha. We’re crazy I know, but when in Texas you gotta do it big!
Hopefully we can squeeze in some FUN in all these cities we will be stopping in before the concerts too. I need to remind myself we are going to Texas to see DMB and for vacation, not to see every darn thing possible! Ha ha. If I’m being honest, I have to say that I CANNOT WAIT to go to WACO and visit the Magnolia Silos! Chris and I love show Fixer Upper and really hope to casually bump into Chip and Jo and become their new besties!
I have a lot of ideas of what we can do on this trip and I can’t wait to share it all when we get back! See you next week!
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
Want to give a SPECIAL shout out to this amazing lady I am so fortunate to call my MOM! ❤
She’s strong, independent, caring, loving, funny, full of wisdom, tells the best stories and I just can’t imagine life without her! I hope that some day I can be just as good of a mom as she is…that day is quickly approaching as baby girl arrives sometime in August haha. I know my Mom will always be my Mom, but I’m sooo looking forward to seeing my her in a new role as GRANDMA!
THANK YOU Mom for everything that you do! I love you so much and feel so lucky to have you as my mom! 💕
I also wanted to wish a very Happy Mother’s Day to all the other moms out there! More and more of my friends have little’s now and its been fun to see them in this new role. You are all such ROCK STARS and truly fabulous moms. I’m excited to be joining this special group soon and hope I can rock motherhood just as well as you all have. 💕
Feliz Cinco de Mayo!
Wishing you all a GREAT day filled with lots of food, fun and of course MARGARITAS! Sadly, I will not be having a margarita (maybe a virgin one), but will celebrate with lots of chips and yummy food! Check out some of these delicious margarita recipes! Can’t wait to try them ALL at some point.
I’m also hoping to get my hands on some of these yummy cupcakes from Sprinkles.
The Casamigos Margarita cupcakes are just delicious and are used with George Clooney’s tequila…how can you say NO to that?!?
Ok everyone, enjoy your day and the weekend! See you next week.
Happy May 1st!
Where the heck has this month gone?!?!?! Sometimes (mostly at work) it feels like these days/weeks just drag on and then all of a sudden BAM it’s a new month! It probably hasn’t helped that we’ve been pretty busy this month with visitors 3 out of the 4 weekends! Always too much going on ha ha ha. May and June are also going to be pretty busy months so I am sure I will feel the same way once May is over and June is on the horizon. This year really is flying by!
Happy Tuesday everyone!
Happy FriYAY friends! TGIF.
So glad it’s FRIDAY!
This weekend is UCSB’s All Gaucho Reunion (alumni weekend) and my sister and her hubby are coming for the weekend. Looking forward to having a house full of GAUCHOS! FYI we are a family of UCSB grads (mom, dad, me, sister, uncles, cousin, etc.). Pretty cool. GO GAUCHOS!
Have a great weekend everyone! See you next week.
