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. :-)

LA County art museum is FREE this week!

Want to see some Picasso, Chagall and other masterpieces for free?

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is offering FREE every second Tuesday of the month.
lacmaonset1If you’ve never been to this museum, it’s worth the drive up there to the mid-Wilshire district of Los Angeles to see their excellent collections of art from around the globe. They have works by famed artists such as Picasso, Chagall, Modigliani, along with world art such as Korean art, Art of the Americas, and much, much more. My kids especially like the Egyptian gallery.
They also offer free multimedia tours of the galleries that you can check out while you’re there.
Parking in their structure is $7. You can also find free parking in the neighborhoods nearby, but look at the signs carefully to make sure you’re not violating any parking codes. Make sure you don’t park on Wilshire Blvd. between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. even at a meter, because you will get towed!
Incidentally, the La Brea Tar Pits are right next door, and they’re fascinating as well, if you find skeletons of giant Ice Age beasts to be interesting.
There’s a nice park adjacent if you want to pack a picnic lunch. There’s also a Marie Calendars nearby and other restaurants as well.
