'Five Things' Friday

Getting a late start on this week's edition of 'Five Things' Friday! It's been one of those wild weeks, where I've barely had a moment to sit down and catch up on anything. Between running my own projects, doing contract work for a model home design firm, caring for my son and everything in between, it's been a very busy start to summer! This morning when I was getting dressed, I realized I only shaved one leg...this tells you what state my brain is in lately! Needless to say, I'm looking forward to a nice (HOT) weekend relaxing with my son and husband. What about you? What do you have planned this weekend?

One. Last Saturday morning, I took my son for a spontaneous little trip down to Laguna Beach, which is just a quick drive from my house. He and I had the best time walking the boardwalk, playing on the swings and watching beach volleyball. This snapshot captures what a gorgeous day it was!

Two. It's going to be such a fun summer with Luke! Now 14 months, he's at such a great age of exploration and discovery. I took this picture of him last weekend at Laguna Beach at the playground on the boardwalk. He enjoyed the sand, but did attempt to eat it several times!

Three. A winebox garden - how cute is this?! I spotted this on the blog LLH Designs and fell in love. What a clever little idea, right?! Go here for step-by-step DIY instructions.

Four. A must-try refreshing summer drink: Raspberry Peach Lemonade via Damn Delicious.

Five. Another great feature in the July/August issue of HGTV magazine: Emily Hart of the blog Recently, shared some fabulous DIY tips, including the faux gold leaf lamp base (above). You must check out her blog, it's awesome!
