Happy Friday, Happy 1st day of July and Happy long weekend.  It’s music to my ears!  Lake Tahoe is calling my name – slow mornings, bailey’s in my coffee, Pope Beach, Wheel of Fortune, the cabin, Camp Richardson, fireworks on the beach, tan lines, rum runners, sunshine and my family.  I’ve come to realize that the 4th of July is by far my favorite Holiday.  Some of my best memories were made while wearing flip-flops ♥


ONE –  Meet Link, our backyard rabbit.  Former Spring Show project turned forever pet.  We stopped caging him once Bailey decided she wanted to raise a market animal.  He’s the best.  Like, I think he’s part human.  For reals though.  He just gets me!  As soon as I open the bedroom slider each morning….he comes running to greet me.  He LOVES to have the spot between his ears scratched.  He likes to be held like a newborn too.  Well, Sunday he went missing.  MIA.  GONE.  I realized that the gate to keep him in the backyard had been knocked down.  And there is a hole in the gate that he clearly was able to shimmy out of.  I was devastated.  I didn’t have the heart to tell Bailey.  She looked everywhere for him Sunday night then decided it was soooo hot, that he must be in a really good hiding spot.  Monday morning as I was taking the trash out….I hear a scratch.  I open the gate, and there he is.  Appearing as though he had a rough night…lol.  Like me after too many tequila shots!  I scooped him up and almost cried.  Guys, I was freaking out.  About to make Missing signs and post them all over my hood.  We gave him strawberry tops (his fav) and made a pact that he is never to run away again.  So happy this dude found his way home.



TWO – Mezger Zinnia Patch is open.  YAY!  We look forward to this every year.  If you’re not familiar with it….take the short drive.  Two miles north of Yolo on HWY 99W.  You can’t miss it.  Rows upon rows of these colorful blooms.  The only request: for every bouquet picked for yourself, pick one for someone who is unable to pick their own.  Deal!!!  We surprised GG with a mason jar of Zinnias yesterday morning.  She had the biggest smile on her face.   You can’t tell here because she told me she’s practicing her “mouth closed smile”  lol.  God, I love her!!



THREE – Seka Hills Fireworks were absolutely amazing last night.  I was blown away.  The drinks (obvi my fav part), food, activities, music did not disappoint.  The kid stations with festive beads for jewelry making, olive branch crowns, coloring and more.  We grabbed a spot in the shade and set up our camp.  They kids played.  We mingled.  It was perfect.  If you follow me on snap, they you saw the awesome firework show.  Just another reason to LOVE Seka Hills 🙂

Birthday shout out to Kate – Happy 7th Birthday BK!  Have a great time celebrating!!!


FOUR – I started back up with Kaia Fit Woodland this week.  Thanks Melika 🙂  This CORE session is I am Able.  Pretty fitting!!!  I got goals to smash…..

The Kaia FIT I Am Able Core Session is the perfect time raise the bar, lose the fear and smash your goals!  You will be in the company of hundreds of women around the country who will be fighting for their “ABLE” by teaching their minds and bodies new tricks to feel their very best this summer.

My body hurts like hell.  Good hurt, of course.  It’s pretty crazy how quickly your body can get out of shape when you take time off from the gym.  It has taught me that I just can’t do it, I have to stay committed FOR-EV-ERRRR.  I’m so excited to be surrounded by Kaia sisters again.  The energy is contagious.  I have to give a shout out to Holi, she is my Kaia inspiration.  She kills it every single time.  #goals

I’m strapping the fit bit back and ready to kick some ass.
