Summer Time

Whoa it's been a LOOOOONNNGGG time since I have been here! And I actually have a short time to spend here this morning. I have soooooo much to share and such little time. It's the story of my life right now! I need at least an extra 4 hours a day. I use to have those hours at night but now they are consumed with sleep and sometimes work. I am so exhausted by the end of the day I can't keep my eyelids opened....

It's hard to believe with the summer we are having (cool weather) that it's half way over. We have only been to the beach 2 or 3 times -however we have been busy with other very fun family things (del mar horse races, farmers markets, pool fun, parks, bbq's with friends, weddings, enjoying and rooting for Uruguay in the World cup was a HUGE highlight, amazing house parties, birthday parties, family gatherings and seeing old friends).

I'll try to get back to post pictures and give some more details on these fun events that go on all summer.

Just wanted to get here and post something to roots and sol, it's been way too looooooonnnggggg......

A late Father's Day Gift Guide

For those who know me well, know that I don't plan ahead much. In fact I run a little late on anything from appointments to meetings to getting out the door in the morning. Not my strongest quality yet a strong characteristic of mine. So here it is, my late father's day gift guide.

This is one of my favorites I came across on my search. It's perfect for us San Diegans that like to BBQ at the beach and parks; it's called the Bodum Frykate Portable Charcoal Grill. It's even cute and comes in different colors.
Bodum Fyrkat 13.4-Inch Portable Charcoal Grill, Orange

One of my amazing Mom group friends, Erin, has a very informative and exciting blog which specializes in books, especially childrens. She included a great list of books of daddy approved & daddy themed books...check them out here (and her blog).

For you whose husbands and fathers are crazy about soccer and the world cup (like my brothers and father) there are so many good options ranging in prices. Target is selling vintage world cup tees, unfortunately there is no Uruguay which is weird since they did win the World cup twice (1930 & 1950) and was where the first World cup was held.

Umbro's Uruguay shirt, they have others but just using this one as an example... oh and did I mention they just scored their second goal versus South Africa....GO URUGUAY!!!!!!!!
Here's a rockin' cool 1950 vintage USA soccer shirt!

How about tickets to go see Anthony Bourdain Live? Or lunch at Stone Brewery? I have never bought this for Peter but have heard these micro beer clubs or monthly beer clubs are pretty cool. And for the wine lover, forget the bottle or box go for the barrel.
And for the daddy that is super metro go for Kiehl's goodies.
Happy Father's Day to all the deserving daddies out there!

Saturday....another Glorious day at the beach

Stokke vs. Keekaroo

Does anyone have any input?? I am in the market of getting one of these chairs...I like the look of the
Stokke but the Keekaroo looks more comfortable. Any suggestions?
