I’m typing from my kitchen eating chocolate covered bacon (my sister picked it up for me at the San Diego Fair…so healthy!), “Olivia” from Nick Jr. is playing in the background as my son and niece are arguing because he “spit on me”. My son loves to terrorize my girlie little niece.
Speaking of things girlie, here are a couple of things that I like right now: one is 2 years “vintage” and the other I bought about a month ago when I went to see SATC2.
So I went to SATC2 (Sex and the City 2 for the novices) with my cousin and my best friend. We made a day of it: Spa, lunch, shopping, the movie, dinner and drinks. We all got prettied up for the day, so I bought these shoes to complete my outfit. They are much more comfortable than they appear, and they do look great on. Such a great color for the summer.
My other favorite thing right now is something I found in my purse. I’ve had it for about 2 years, and I bought it from her store in Las Vegas. It’s from Anya Hindmarch and it’s a perfect little wallet/mini clutch purse. It’s a very light metallic gold leather, and anytime I take it out, I get compliments galore.
We are off to Las Vegas tomorrow for the 4th of July weekend. On Saturday, my husband and I are going to Mesquite for a “mini-break”. Dominic will stay with the grandparents. I’m getting a spa treatment and pedicure (thank you honey!) while he plays golf during the day. Then we’ll relax at night with drinks and dinner along with a stay at a hotel before heading back to his parents for 4th of July (we can buy fireworks in Nevada, so we plan to shoot off our own again).
I hope to do a little shopping at the Fashion Outlet at Primm Valley on the way back home on Monday (they have the only Burberry outlet in the West Coast). If I know my husband, we’ll also be making a stop at Jimmy Johns and Capriotti’s for sandwiches (we were SO sad when we discovered that Capriotti’s was no longer in San Diego).
Well, I hope you all have a wonderful Independence Day weekend!
