{fiesta forever}



I kind of feel like throwing a little Fiesta... So it's time to grab some hot pink balloons,  clean up your yard, fluff your pillows and fire up your crock pot {or grill}! So far this summer with my kiddos has been fun and definitely filled with so excitement.  Each week I try to add something new for them to do. I've been spacing it out so I don't break the bank... But it makes each adventure  more fun {special}! Hmmm I  think this week it's time to invite our friends over for some home made tacos, guacamole, margaritas... And dance to Enrique Iglesias  all night long! Can you feel it...

thankful



So if you had to make a list of 10 things you're so very thankful for... What would they be?  

  1. My children, Taylor and Ryan.
  2. My mothers love and true guidance.
  3. Having the best BFF ever to tell me when I'm being an absolute idiot and perfectly brilliant.
  4. Living in a little coastal town in  in San Diego.
  5. Working for myself and living the entrepreneurial dream.
  6. Being able to laugh and giggle all the time... Especially at myself.
  7. Never got a tattoo.
  8. I had a dad that lifted me up and made me want to be a better person in life. No joke he never put me down ever.
  9. That I can't lie and hurt people.
  10. That I could travel as a child with my family... And still love to travel as an adult! {many more adventures are in my future with me and my children} 

I could keep going on and on and on... But now it's your turn... Tell all!

happy father's day...




Ok, I'm going to be so straight forward and  honest with you all... I had the best dad ever! He was perfect, awesome, amazing, fun, protective, strong and never ever ever let a day go by without talking to me! No joke! I think my entire life I was spanked only once by him... And he was mortified that he did that. My mom and I still laugh because he felt so guilty for days because of that. He never cursed or even fought with my mom infant of us. never! If he was upset he would stop and re-analyze the situation. I'm not lying about any of this... He was an amazing cook, told the best stories where he would captivate you for hours and could dance to techno like no other human being.  Truly awesome! When he was dying of cancer and in extreme pain... He called me just to talk for fun and when I was upset, he only asked about me and my problems. He would listen and guide me the best way that he could. My father would hold my hand and say... I love you so much, you're beautiful... Never forget that! I was truly blessed... I did have the most AMAZING father ever. He believed that my brother and I were the greatest gift he was ever given in life so he treated us like gold! Thank you for being my dad! I cherish all the beautiful memories we had together! Thank you dad... I miss you like crazy!

Happy Father's Day!

drink up




Coffee table accessories are so fun... You really can display absolutely anything! Summer candles, winter books, fall pomegranates,  spring flowers... The skies the limit! I have an old brass container on my coffee table filled with what ever fresh greens that are in season from Trader Joe's... And the staple cup of coffee that starts my day {wink}. I can't put too much on my coffee table at this point because I have kids who still like to table dance, drop art projects on it and put their feet up during movie night. One day I will really be able to deck out my coffee table... Can't wait! What's on your coffee table...

dinner tonight

..Asian Beef with Mushrooms & Snow Peas..

Ingredients:
    Homemade Asian Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup tamari (or low-sodium soy sauce)
  • 5 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • Beef:
  • 10 oz snow peas
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 10 oz mushrooms, sliced thinly
  • 1 pound beef, thinly sliced (sirloin steak strips, flank steak, or any other steak)
  • 2 cups cooked rice
Instructions:
  1. Combine all the sauce ingredients in a bowl - whisk to combine. Set aside.
  2. Bring water in a medium pan to boil. Add snow peas, boil them for 5 minutes, drain. Set aside.
  3. Heat a large skillet until hot, add 2 tablespoons olive oil - it should sizzle. Immediately add thinly sliced mushrooms - cook them on high heat, turning occasionally, until they brown nicely. Salt them midway, a little bit (not too much salt, as you will be adding tamari sauce later). Remove mushrooms to a bowl.
  4. To the same skillet, on high heat, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil, which will sizzle right away. Immediately add thinly sliced meat. You might want to do this in 2 batches, because you will want each slice of meat to touch the bottom of the skillet and for meat slices not to be crowded. This will ensure that meat will brown on high heat. Cook meat on one side until it browns nicely. Turn over all meat slices to the opposite side, and cook more, on high heat, until all slices brown nicely. Remove this batch to a bowl. Add a second batch of meat, and repeat.
  5. Return all of the cooked meat back to the skillet. Add the snow peas and cooked mushrooms, then the sauce. On high heat - stir everything to combine, for about 1 minute. Turn off heat. Cover the skillet with a lid.
  6. Serve over rice.

breakfast {interior design}


OMG breakfast has never looked so good to me right now {wink}! If I had a fridge and cabinet like the one above my breakfast meals would be scrumptious!  Ok, I have a confession to make... I'm obsessed with the fridge on top. I love the glass door front. I have a thing for organizing and displaying things. No joke I really want one... I remember a showroom manager at Ferguson telling me that I could get one for $13,000. No biggie right!?!?! Actually, I think that was even a floor sample sale price with a few dings. lol  I'll still take it. One day I'll make it happen... So what are your thoughts on fridges like this... Do you like them with glass? Yes or no?

progress peek {interior design}




I'm back at it! Yes, I can say the 2 magic words again, "I'm working"... WOW, that feel so good! I had meetings last week that were so fun and exciting. Here's a peek of a dining room that I started a few months ago, but with my move, my client and I agreed that I slow down and finish my office unpacking and get settled into my new space... Now onto completing the dining room. This transformation will blow you away. From dark and dramatic to extremely open and bright. Now that's music to my ears... Can't wait to show you how it ends! I think you will like this dining room transformation!
