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. :-)

2011 California Strawberry Festival- Oxnard

Oxnard- Seriously, I know some of you are thinking that's a long drive from So. Cal. BUT this event is worth it. It's the biggest and best STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL in California (IMHO). It's about 2-2.5 hours of a drive and so this would make a GREAT daycation. Get up early get there when it opens at 10am and stay, pack a lunch or eat the many choices they have there, enjoy, and be home in time for the kids to be in bed. Have fun!
