Good morning Special Peeps! Thanks for the birthday wishes. I've had a lovely weekend, 4 days of fun with my favorite peoples ever.
First time in quite a while that The Girl has been able to join us for a day of fun. We picked her up on the way to Cambria and San Luis Obispo. It was a fun day of visiting and eating and shopping.
She just spent Thursday with us, then we dropped her back off at the end of the day. She's a busy thing. And dang it, she wants her bunny back.
One of my favorite things about coastal living is the wonderful gardens. I'm loving the pretty succulents everywhere along the way. I know you don't always appreciate the fauna I see but I haven't seen a Katydid in YEARS. Years people.
I don't even remember which day it was, but Bret and I started out to Sutter Creek and lo and behold ended up in the road to Twain Harte. We were just yakking and didn't pay attention. Well that's what he's telling me anyway. Saw this along the way. Crazy.
We did eventually head up to Sutter Creek, and it was lovely. We had some nice days driving around. I love flowers and vignettes and would fill my patio with interesting pots of things. Like this.
We drove up 88 and went past the craziest place, it had a ton of windmills on it. This by far was the prettiest, but oh my. The place was crazy. I've always wanted a huge old windmill
So peeps, last week or so I won a drawing over at Dena's blog, the Sugar Shop
. Very exciting. I won a gift certificate to Over The Rainbow
, which I promptly spent on wonderful Ava Rose and a piece of Park Slope.
And now I'd like to offer my sweet readers a chance to celebrate my birthday and win a $35 gift certificate to Over the Rainbow
! Laura generously bumped my $25 gift certificate up to $35 to help me share the love on my blog.. so leave a comment and Wednesday I'll draw a name for a winner!!!
Ok, hope you're having a nice weekend. xo
