Grafton/Boston Adventures

We drove from New York to Grafton, MA to visit the brother-in-law and it was a beautiful drive. The weather was nice and the scenery was so green. Much different from the Socal to Norcal drive...all dry...booooring.

Playing with the kids :)

Purgatory Chasm

This is my favorite picture :) 

Yes, the adult rolling down the hill is husband.

New York/Brooklyn Adventures

We visited New York and Brooklyn over the past weekend to see my hubby's sister and her husband, well I was really only there for a quick trip, but we managed to pack as much as we could into a short trip. The weather was really nice, not too hot, not too cold, and we walked a ton. Lets just say, my feet are not made for walking!

Just a few of my favorite things

A few things that I absolutely love and just had to share :)

Officially, my first real strand of pearls, courtesy of my favorite man on our 5th Anniversary.

 My new mini jewelry catcher/plate/organizer/lifesaver/ring finder when in panic mode :)

My new tea cup :) This cup lists 5 essential life lessons to live by (according to Buddhism), which apply to everyone, anywhere. I asked someone to translate it for me and this was their rough translation: something about being kind, taking care of elders, having peace...

Washi tape :D wahoo!
My new black bag...yes, I have a collection...yes, it's a, I don't have the room.

 Took my little blue and white plate (newest addition to my dish hoarding disease) to work and it makes me smile :)

Prada Sunglasses that look oh so fabulous on me that I totally bought in my head, but had to leave at the store :D
