I love adding little decorating do-dads
from cute shops I find on vacation...
I asked my daughter if she loved this little blessed sign (cuz I love it!)
she said "yeah, but what's with the bacon arms?"
haha~ teenagers....they crack me up :)
I'm so excited for a few additions to arrive from
I have wished for this
yikes, and the
Chefchaouen Blue Dress
is the cutest....

I told the kids that I really hope this is what heaven is like....
we rented a little beach cottage....it was pure bliss...
I had some homework, but ya can't beat this for study time...
the boys played soccer by the shore,
goal posts=shovel + a brother dug into the sand
we took morning walks and met up with sand crabs...
happy summer :)
I found this amazing gal in Santa Fe at the outdoor market..
I am in love with this beaded cuff and
beautiful dangly earrings...
this fairly traded jewelry is made
by women in Guatemala...
my daughter and I both picked up a few pieces...
my only regret is that I didn't buy more :(
thank goodness for the internet, right?

on our little trip to New Mexico...
I had to visit the real-life locations from
this little show I love...haha...we had our car washed here...
they even told us to have an A-1 Day :)
we all loved this marker in the Carlsbad Caverns
...somehow every time a child asked how
far away we were from a location we said
"Oh about 10 minutes..."
we were cracking up at this sign...inside joke but too funny
here we are off on the open road....lots of fun memories :)
we've been loving summer....
we took a little road trip~ the funniest thing is the kids'
fascination with the hotel food....they don't normally
use this much tabasco sauce, but hey, little bottles are irresistible
we were amazed by the
seriously, this is a MUST see/bucket list place to visit...
we had a blast in downtown ABQ...
we all found great stuff at
The Buffalo Exchange
we had this to-die-for BBQ at
we made a quick stop at The Grand Canyon,
well, not quick (as the kids would say), just a few hours out
of the way...how could we
we also took a train to Santa Fe...
I didn't snap any pix of the vendors,
but the Native American wares in the plaza
were simply delightful....we found so many
beautiful, hand-made items :)
we also shopped the farmer's market in Santa Fe,
yikes~ so much to see, taste, try...
I am in love with this Desert Dweller Lotion
it's all natural, super moisturizing,
and smells like you stepped out of the day spa :)
