my sunny sunday


i am so excited may is here! so many wonderful things to celebrate ~ mother's day, lots of family birthdays, AND of course it's time for beach weather in california! (normally i also celebrate may with a trip back home for the twins' birthdays & for herrinfesta italian... but sadly this will be my first year EVER not taking the trip. and for the record it's totally killing me!! i will surely miss fried raviolis & a louie's p&r italian beef sandwich with a lemon shake up most.)

what's your favorite thing about may??

we actually ended april with a lot of fun. yesterday the mister and i had a bbq at our bungalow & hosted a ufc fight night. it was such a great day/night of friends, sun, food, and lots of flowing beverages. :) i woke up this morning with the sunshine and was very happy to eat a red velvet cupcake for breakfast. now i am just patiently waiting for the mister to be ready to play outside... he may or may not have had a little too much fun last night so i am trying to let him rest!

i was hoping to do some blogging today and play catch up with your emails & comments, but life and the beach are calling, and a mermaid has to keep her priorities straight. :)

i promise to check in with all of you lovelies later this week!

p.s. i am so excited everyone's loving the make a wish jewelry at dogeared giveaway ~ if you haven't entered, check it out here!

What is a lemon shake!?? The food sounds yummy, can you make it yourself?! I LOVE May, it's my birthday month! Memorial day too, and it's just lovely! :D

I hear ya on the beach! I spent most of yesterday at the beach in Venice and it was amazing! I can't get enough of it! I'm also so happy that I didn't even get a sunburn! Usually i end up coming home looking like a tomato but yesterday I just kept putting on sunscreen! Yay for me! I look forward to many many more days like that at the beach here in LA!
Happy May! : )

Oh I so miss carnival/fair food. One thing I've never found here is fried pork tenderloins. I eat a ton every time I go back! Happy May.

Sounds like a perfect weekend, and a divine way to kick off the month of May! The weather in SF has been so warm, I'm in heaven!

Love the quote, so perfect.

Is it weird I'm bummed we didn't have any April showers? That's OK our May flowers are still blooming :)

Happy May!

Oooh sounds like someone had an awesome weekend! I am missing California a lot. May is my favorite month coz it's my anniversary month with the boyfie. =)

I'm very excited that May is here too. For me it means the warm weather is finally here to stay until the end of summer and I'm gearing up for lots of pool and beach time.

Your weekend sounds great, especially your Sunday night get together.
