'Five Things' Friday - Bits of My Summer

This summer has just zipped on by and I'm having a hard time believing September is just around the corner! I'm not ready for fall yet...I still need to sneak in a few more days at the beach and by the pool (I'm way behind on my tan ;). Here's a little peek at how I've been spending my summer days. What have you been up to the last couple months? Are you ready for the Fall season?

One. Days at the beach with my sweet son Luke. This was taken in Laguna last weekend - it was the perfect morning!

Two. I managed to escape a few times to lay out by the pool - ALONE - where I caught up on all of my magazines and just relaxed (it's the little things that we busy moms miss the most, right?!).

Three. I enjoyed a few lemon drop martinis with friends on the beach at sunset...a rarity these days now that I'm busy running after a 15 month old all day!

Four. Summer evenings out with my husband. We try and carve out time together as a couple as often as possible!

Five. I was in charge of creating flower arrangements for a couple bridal showers this summer, which I always enjoy doing. These roses were for my sister-in-laws bridal shower - I arranged various shades of pink roses in square vases - my "go-to" arrangement for centerpieces!

Have a great weekend and don't forget to enter the exciting giveaway I'm hosting...details here.
