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. :-)

Some fun Ideas for summer...think FREE Art and Culture!

Summer is fast approaching and I've been looking at ways to have fun, BUT not break the bank!  I have found some really fun things to do in Southern California, so I'll be highlight some of them for here you! You too, can have a fun and no break the bank Summer.

The first thing I learned was that Bank of America has FREE museum days.

Here are the details of how it works. You need photo ID and your B of A credit or debit card with your name on it (matching ID). You present that to the box office on the first weekend of the month and you get in FREE!! Many of the museums are cheaper for kids, so for about 15.00 you can get in your whole family.   There about 100 Museums nationwide. You can click on find locations on BofA's site HERE and find the one in your neck of the woods, but here are the ones in Southern California. (See below). I have heard that the Birch Aquarium in La Jolla is wonderful with many things for the kids to do and spectacular views. It's made my top 5 list of places I'd like to see...soon. Keep checking back to see photos of when we go.
