Our first crop!

Emery and I checked our garden yesterday and realized our first crop is here! We have 2 huge cucumbers, a huge bunch of basil (come get some if you want some) and our pumpkin and pepper plants are growing huge! How fun, can't wait to dig in!
Things are looking up!

Just Us...

So I haven't had a chance to blog about our little getaway trip last weekend. We were able to escape and spend a foot-loose and fancy-free weekend together, just Bubba and I. We went to a beautiful wedding for one of Bubba's friends on the coast, stayed at my brothers house and basically borrowed his life for the weekend! It was so much fun!!!
My brother and his darling wife have a darling little place 2 minutes from downtown SLO, so we borrowed their darling little beach cruisers and rode all over darling little San Luis! I woke up early and headed to my favorite coffee shop to read and Bubba took advantage of the chance to sleep in. We met up for breakfast, rode around town, went to a few shops to do some early birthday shopping for us both, had lunch, and headed home. We couldn't hit the road though until we stopped at the Avila Barn to snag our favorite Ollalaberry Pie (next time your on the coast, grab one- you won't be disappointed!) When we returned home, Emery was swimming with her crazy Uncle Buddy & cousin Griffin... and she didn't even crack a smile when we returned! Guess she had too much fun with Auntie Gelayol & Uncle Buddy!
What a fun and refreshing weekend.... can't wait for the next one!

Happy Red, White, & Blue!

We had a great and relaxing Red, White, and Blue over here- a few friends to celebrate with and some TASTEY burgers to fill our tummies, if I don't say so myself!

My very own little Firecracker, Miss Emmie Lou
Love this girl in a bikini and piggies...

Snoozin' away with explosions bursting above her head!
Hope you all had a Happy 4th of July!

My sweet friend Jocelyn is taking a photo editing class and her word to use was "sassy"- she chose Em, how appropriate! Here's what she came up with- isn't it so cute??? She's got some serious talent! Thanks girl!
