Welcome back from the long weekend.  Hope yours was sunny + fun-filled + relaxing!

And apparently today is Tuesday, not Monday.  Which I didn’t realize most of this morning.  I’m all thrown off.  Here’s to probably getting it wrong everyday this week 🙂

 

 

Intentions for the week:

  • Wash all the sliders (like really good) (clean windows are everything)
  • Go through Bay’s closet #fuckinggrowthspurt (got rid of more than we kept)
  • List all her clothes on online yardsale (we made over $90..thanks FB friends) 
  • Buy clothes that actually fit her, again! (thank you target clearance section)
  • Set a pretty outdoor table (did you see {tie dye napkin diy})
  • Log all food in My Fitness Pal (totally failed last week)  (Pre-logging is a game changer)
  • Mani + pedi’s for the BIG 6th grade dance  (She picked the prettiest pale pink)
  • Throw together a quinoa salad with shit I already have in the fridge + pantry (bomb.com) 
  • Make more almond butter…yummm (so good on apples + rice cakes + spoonfuls) 
  • Checkout the Before I die wall on Main Street (really cool, check it out)
  • Play at the new park in town
  • Work on our Summer Bucket List (we’re going to have a fun/busy summer) 

 

Highlights from the weekend:

 

Festive ice cubes

Picked up a large ice-cube mold from World Market.  Added some strawberries + raspberries + blueberries.

When you ask for the smallest cut of prime rib and they bring you a piece the size of your head.

We spent a lot of time sitting right here!

Coffee in the morning.  Cocktails in the afternoon 🙂

Took Everett fishing

His first fish.  If only you could have seen how excited he was.  He caught 3 more right after this.

Wine tasting at Barra

Their Rosé + chard were my faves, as always.

Built to resemble an upside down champagne glass.  So cool inside.

Can’t wait to try out Testa next month when we go back.

Potter Valley Rodeo, the main attraction of the weekend

Keg beer + sunshine + cowboy boots ♥

I can’t remember the last time I went to a rodeo.

Small town signs are the best….

Boots + beers

Everett + Reid are out there trying to catch chickens + pigs.  They weren’t successful this time, but I’m sure next year someone will be going home with a new pet.

Rodeo food

Always down for grilled hot dogs!  Mine // His

 

Spent the rest of the day right here.

BIG thanks to Chad + Jamie for having us.  What a great weekend  ♥

Memorial Day at the Potter Valley Cemetery

Such a nice tribute.  I cried when a little boy in his 4-H whites sang the national anthem.

Made it home just in time to scoop up my girl and fishing off the night with swimming + barbecuing with friends.
