Summer Break is almost over and it’s been quite eventful. I will be posting some of our fun adventures over the next few days. With the kids back in school, I hope to find more time to work on projects and try some new recipes! Hope you all had an awesome Summer too!! – Caasi
The first full week of Summer has come and gone. I’m beat! It’s been a jam packed week and I have 9 more weeks left. I can’t wait to share what we have been up to!
Look for new posts next week. I’ll be sharing our outings and activities that maybe you can add to your Summer schedule!
Happy first day of Summer!
Last weekend, I attended the LA Times Festival of Books. This was my first time attending this event that’s held annually at USC. I can’t believe that I have never been before! Not only is it just a 25 minute drive from my house, but it’s a book festival! I love books! This free event is fun for the whole family. There were cooking demonstrations, book readings, music, food and fun.
I didn’t bring the family, I attended alone because I wanted to check out some of the interview sessions. One that I attended was a conversation with our own Lt. Governor, Gavin Newsom. Newsom spoke about his first book, Citizenville: How to take the town square digital and reinvent government. While we all have embraced our new digital world through social media, portable devices, smart phones, infinite apps and the cloud, our government has yet to catch up and almost resists the change. After the event, I was able to meet and have Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom sign my book! Can’t wait to attend next year!
It’s time for another baby shower! One of my very best friends is having a boy! Of course I wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to help with her first baby shower, golf themed!
With the theme in mind, she decided she wanted golf ball cake pops and bought the green “grass” for the display. I planned out what I wanted the stands to look like.
I’m so happy with how they turned out and can’t wait to make the pops tomorrow! The shower is on Saturday, and I’ll post pictures! Stay tuned!
So the renovation is well underway and should be done for our Spring Break visit next week! I can’t wait to see it and take some progress photos! Here are some sneak peaks of what we selected:
We are installing a vessel sink so we had two options for a faucet, a tall single handle faucet installed in the countertop or this wall mount style faucet. Of course the wall mounted style is the way to go… I love the look of this faucet paired with the tile we fell in love with.
Isn’t this glass tile awesome? I love the combination of colors and it sets a calm and relaxing mood for the bathroom.
We liked the subtle green tone to this seagrass natural stone tile. This tile will be below the glass border.
This lighter tile will be above the glass border and in the shower only. The wall above the border in the shower is going to be painted, not sure of the color yet.
While we haven’t settled on a wall color, the cabinet color has been for a while. This green painted cabinet will have a light brown glaze. I can’t wait to see the finished cabinets!
