HEATWAVE!












We had a heatwave in southern cali last week and the kids begged me to take a dip in the pool. They also decided to play backgammon while swimming, not the easiest thing to do in a pool, but they had a blast anyway.

LET'S GO DODGERS, LET'S GO!










My husband got free tickets to tonight's dodger game so we went along with my mom. I love free anything! I had on my dodger gear to represent and had a great time. I don't know if you guys noticed or not, but you can see my mom getting closer and closer to the field throughout the pictures. We had great seats, right behind the home plate, which was awesome. I had to be brave and avoid all of the "good" food because I am on a diet, hence the healthy plate picture. We all mentioned how every time we come to a game, we always lose. Well tonight, we WON! It was so much fun hanging out with real fans and just being in that atmosphere. Now, I'm just trying to decide if I'm a Ramirez fan or a Puig fan.

DIY- SHORT LOUNGE SET AND PATTERN REVIEW








I worked on this lounge wear short set all week. Ok, I started one day earlier this week, stared at it the other days, and decided to finish it today. I absolutely love the print and I thought of relaxing in the house on a warm summer day when I bought it. Unfortunately, the bottoms were a bit tight on me so I decided to give it up. I'm no seamstress and I tend to be in denial of my true measurements. I used McCall's pattern M6848. It was very easy to follow and I plan on using it again. I opted out of the binding on the arms because I was being lazy, but it still turned out great! I'm feeling pretty proud of myself right now and I hope the new owner loves it just as much as I do.

LACMA- THROUGH THE EYES OF THE KIDS
































All of the pictures were taken by my children, except for the last one. We had a great time at LACMA. There were so many awesome exhibitions we couldn't possibly show you all of them. My sister invited us to go with her since it was free that day. I would encourage everyone to go and check it out.
