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. :-)

5/22/11 The music, dance, culture and cuisine of Sicily come to the streets of San Diego's Little Italy on Sunday, May 22, 2011, 10 am-6 pm, as part of the 18th Annual Sicilian Festival celebration on India Street.

The highly popular FREE family event features authentic Sicilian food and entertainment, surrounded by the colorful ambiance of San Diego's Little Italy neighborhood, located within walking distance of the beautiful San Diego harbor and within minutes of San Diego's vibrant downtown district.

Four stages will feature a wide variety of Sicilian and Italian entertainment. At noon, a parade of dozens of costumed dancers, musicians, and representatives of the Italian organizations in San Diego will waltz through the streets carrying flags from the different regions of Sicily and Italy.

Food booths will line the streets to satisfy the hungry crowds by serving up authentic Sicilian cuisine. Tarantino's Sausages, the Festival's presenting sponsor, will be on hand to offer their renowned gourmet sausage sandwiches, joining many of Little Italy's restaurants that will offer up their own Sicilian culinary specialties. Festival visitors will also be able to relax at two Peroni wine and beer gardens, or shop among the many booths offering Italian-themed artifacts and services.

The Sicilian Festival is the perfect venue for families with children. All children's activities are FREE, and include a large inflatable slide, puppet theatre shows, face painting, children song and dance productions, and many other activities to keep the bambini entertained throughout the day--without emptying their parents' pocketbooks!
