Ok...maybe it is not a secret...but a little spot of PARADISE it is for sure!!! You know how you have that one spot...that when you get there you say.....ahhhhhhh....finally we are HERE??? Refugio is that place for my family. Refugio is about 20 miles north of Santa Barbara. It is a coveted place to camp. Reservations go on sale on the first of every month at 8:00am...6 months in advance...and by 8:05 the entire park is sold out. So, when we get reservations...we feel oh so lucky! Saturday, we just went down for the day! It was about 72...the water was clear...light breeze coming off the ocean....PURE PARADISE!!!! I am also trying out my new camera...a NIKON Coolpix. The camera is wonderful...photographer, uhhhhhh...she needs some work:)
My son's first wave of the year!
I hope you have a fabulous evening!!

Ok...I was going to pick the winner of my Spring Sign Giveaway this afternoon...but I just found out my family is coming into town about five hours earlier than planned. Needless to say...a little stressed...I still need to clean sheets & grocery shop!!!! I know it will all come together and that being together is what is important....keep telling myself that...
Anyway...that gives you...my friends...another opportunity to enter into the giveaway!!! Check out the giveaway details from earlier in the week:)
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!!
ps...these pictures are on my daughters. They were helping me clean yesterday and every time they would vacuum...our little parakeet would fly & land on their heads:) Made me laugh so hard!!!!

To me....Spring means getting the Capris pants out & finally wearing flip flops again!!! YAY!!! My FAVORITE pair of Capris finally wore out last year...soooooo sad!!!! SO...I went shopping to find a pair. Um...has anyone tried any on yet this season???? They are all "skinny" Capris!!!! EVERY pair I tried on...I looked like an Oompa Loompa!!! When you are curvy, making your rear end the BIGGER part is a SCARY look!!! I finally found one pair that I could get away with, after trying on about 20 pair. When did dressing for Spring start to be so much work???
There is still time to enter my Spring Sign Giveaway...
Hope your Spring Day is warm...and you have your flip flops on:)

Woo Hoo...I am so happy that Spring is here! Spring = Hope!!! All the almond trees are blooming...wild flowers popping up...of course my allergies are kicking in BIG TIME...but small price to pay for such lovely weather. Next door...the house is empty, abandoned. They left there pool full, and then with all the rain...lets just say GROSS!!! PERFECT habitat for frogs though!
You can NOT believe the ROAR of ribits when evening comes!!
My son is in frog heaven!!!
Hope you all have a GREAT, Fresh day!!! Watch for my spring giveaway that I hope to post tomorrow!!!
