Show and Tell Friday!

Pin It Now!


Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  


As you can see I've been having fun making these motivational posters on Big Huge Labs!  You can make your own, just go to Big Huge Labs Motivator! It's Free!  (I am not affiliated with this website, just passing on something I thought you may enjoy).

At the time this post goes up I will be in Santa Cruz for a girl's weekend away! There are four of us going and I can't wait!  We are all sharing a hotel right on the beach.  Thursday night when this goes up I'll be at a beach party!  Santa Cruz is only 30 minutes away from my place so it's like a mini vacation in my our own backyard!  The following weekend we're going back for another girl's weekend away at my friend's parent's beach house in Rio Del Mar (near Santa Cruz).  I'm really looking forward to these next two weekends! I'll be sure to take some photos to share!

As you can probably tell, I'm living life to the fullest!  Last weekend, my daughter and I and my girlfriend and her daughter went ziplining through the redwoods in the Santa Cruz mountains!  It was a blast, and not that scary at all.  I've gone bungee jumping so compared to that this was relaxing!  You can see the platform that we stood on in the trees below. We did 6 different ziplines and crossed two suspension bridges!
Life is what you make it!!!

I had no idea there is ziplining in the SC mountains! Gonna have to check that out.....
Rio Del Mar is my favorite beach. Free parking, a coffee shop and miles of beach to walk on. It doesn't get much better! A few years ago I even saw a whale out past the surf from the beach. That was the coolest.
Thanks for the party!

Good Afternoon! I linked up my Non-Toxic DIY Laundry Softener (#257). It works great, it's super cheap, requires just two ingredients and leaves you laundry fluffy fresh. Hope you enjoy! Have a great holiday!
