All About lil o' Me

My photo
Just call me your Budget Barista. I have been married for 20 years to the best man on this planet. He's sweet, caring, kind, but most of all he makes me laugh. We have Three adorable kids. A beautiful sweet pea girl, A 'superman' boy, and a love bug baby girl. We just love that we live where people vacation...where the ocean meets the sky. We live a wonderful life. I love my life and I thank Christ for giving it to me. Some random things about me are I enjoy baking, quilting, paper crafting, jewelry making, scrapbooking, and loving on my family. I am a Princess in the Kingdom of the King of Kings, diet coke drinking baby kisser. We are a homeschooling family but are part of a hybrid program where the children attend a 'classroom' 2 days a week and we do the rest at home. It's a blast. We also love to vacation and explore God's world around us. I think that's enough for now. :-)

FREE rockabilly concerts at the OC Market Place

The Orange County Market Place is holding a rockabilly competition this weekend and it looks like fun. It’s one of the events this mega-swap-meet has going on this summer that promises some decent entertainment. And, hey, you can get some tube socks while you’re there as well.
You can also get in FREE with a canned donation for the Orange County Food Bank.
Here’s the information on the Rockabilly Showdown:

A competition pitting unsigned rockabilly bands and the first in a series of Sunday concerts will get jump started this weekend at the Orange County Market Place, the weekend swap meet at the O.C. Fair and Event Center, Costa Mesa.
The West Coast Rockabilly Showdown was inaugurated on Saturday, May 1 at noon with the first round of competition. The last Showdown is the 29th with three different bands competing. The winner of each date goes to the finals on Saturday, June 5, also held at the Market Place at noon.
The top four bands will be vying for the first place cash award of $1,000 and the opportunity to open for James Intveld, a rockabilly music veteran on Sunday, June 20. The second place finisher wins $750, third place wins $500 and third place $250.
The semi-finalists were selected via electronic audition submittals and include bands primarily from Southern California, though the lead vocalist in one of the competitors is coming from Nashville, Tennessee.
Judging is done by an audience voice meter and conducted at the end after all bands have performed for the day. Daniel Castillo aka DJ WINE-O will host the Showdown events.

Here is the line-up:
