Feeling ready for Fall...

I can't believe these words are escaping my mouth, but I think I'm ready for Fall. Something about the crisp air, smell of campfire, warm colors, and football weekends gets me all excited... and the thought of buying a crisp new pair of jeans and boots doesn't hurt either... While I'm waiting for the mid 60's degree weather to settle in, here's a look at some fresh outfit ideas for Fall 2014...

Hey, who said you can't be inspired by kid's outfits? These kids have style. Plain and simple.






 And so do the adults...


 Happy Fall!

Mid Week Pick Me Up

Just because it's Tuesday and it's the Summertime...


Watermelon Margaritas
Courtesy of ValSoCal

       3 cups cubed watermelon
2 limes juiced
1 cup of Cabo Wabo tequila ( my personal favorite)
1/4 cup triple sec

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
Salt or sugar for rim



        1) Heat sugar and water in pot. You are doing this to make a simple syrup.
        When the sugar is dissolved...take off of stove and let cool
        2) In the meantime juice the watermelon in a juicing machine. "If you don't
        have a juicer and blender will work fine. It will be a little thicker.
        3) Add lime juice, tequila, triple sec, and cooled simple syrup to the watermelon
        juice. Mix well.
        4) Rim your glasses in sugar or salt. Add crushed ice or ice cubes.
        5) Pour the Margarita in glass and serve.
         Note, to make it extra special add a slice of watermelon and lime to glass

A little poetry for your Monday morning

"It couldn't be done"
by: Edgar Guest

Somebody said that it couldn’t be done,
But, he with a chuckle replied
That "maybe it couldn’t," but he would be one
Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
  That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you’ll never do that;
At least no one has done it";
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,
And the first thing we knew he’d begun it.
With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failure;
There are thousands to point out to you one by one,
The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle it in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go to it;
Just start to sing as you tackle the thing
That "couldn’t be done," and you’ll do it.
