Happy Weekend!



peggywongphotography_hearst castle5

I’m excited to be heading out tomorrow morning for a little weekend getaway with my husband for our 8 year anniversary of being together.  It will be the first weekend in awhile in which I’ll truly be taking two full days off (no laptop to sneak in an hour of work here and there). We’ll be touring the Hearst Castle and exploring the nearby surroundings.  From what I hear, it’s absolutely beautiful.  I’ll probably be instagramming a few photos in case you want to follow me along!

Have a great one!

Dog Beach

arianna-belle-on-instagramThere’s a lovely off-leash dog beach in Santa Barbara where we take Little Foot and my sister‘s dog Roofus at least once every summer.  We drove up there this Saturday, and while as we were headed over, it seemed like it would be overcast and a bit on the chillier side, once we got there it was clear skies and perfect weather.  The pups soaked in the sun and excitedly ran their little hearts out with paws in the sand.  Seeing them so happy makes me happy. Hopefully we’ll get a chance to go at least once more this summer.

Have a Great Fall Weekend!

Can you believe this will be the last weekend of October? I can’t either.

Looking forward to fall favorites -pumpkin patch tomorrow afternoon, and pumpkin spice pancakes Sunday morning -yum!

Hope you have a lovely weekend! See you again Monday! :)

Happy Friday

The weather has returned to feeling a bit more “fall-like” over here, and so this weekend you’re likely to find me wearing soft knits…

and warming up with homemade soup… Hope you have a wonderful weekend! See you again soon!

Happy Friday!

We’re having summer-like temperatures over here so might take advantage and go out to the dog beach with the pup. That is, if the weird feeling I have in my throat and left ear right now doesn’t turn out to be a cold or ear infection.

Off to get some rest. Have a great weekend all!

Happy Friday!

It’s been a busy week and I’m looking forward to some leisurely time. Maybe a bit of sleeping in, a long Sunday brunch, some outdoor time…

Enjoy your weekend! I hope to see you back here next week!

Outdoor Living

Yesterday we took advantage of the beautiful sunny weather and had a backyard bbq to celebrate two things: my dad’s birthday, and my sister’s (and her now officially husband!) court marriage (the big wedding is next Saturday).
We had so much yummy food – shrimp, chicken, grilled veggies and corn, pasta salad, frijoles, carne asada, pico de gallo… not to mention dessert! I took a stab at making a rainbow cake. Check out my twitter page to take look at how it turned out!
Looking forward to many more summer days spent outside :)
Have a wonderful weekend!
