This weeks edition of random Saturday is brought to you
by big kids and the happiest place on Earth.
1. Traveling shoes
This was the first time that we flew down to LA instead of driving
but we wanted to maximize the time we would be able to visit
and so- an hour long flight is perfect.
While flying, my teenage daughter decided to start quoting Bridesmaids.
In case you were on the same flight- we were the ones who were laughing non stop.
She started with the whole colonial woman churning butter on the wing thing
and moved onto how she was feeling so relaxed...and ready to par-tayyyyy...
I was relieved to see that we didn't have a flight attendant named 'Stove' (or Steve) or it
really might have gotten a little out of hand.
2. Disneyland is for big kids too
While in LA we decided to spend a day over at Disneyland.
It has always been one of the kids favorite vacation spots and just because they are older
doesn't mean they don't love it just as much.
2 of my 3 laughing at Vine videos
We laughed, ran around, went on all our favorite rides and I did one of my favorite things too-
spent a little time sitting in New Orleans Square with all the ambiance
taking photos and people watching.
I find it fascinating.
Unfortunately, by the evening- that big kid of mine was not feeling too good.
He ended up needing an antibiotic for a secondary infection from
a bug he and his girlfriend had the week before.
3. To market... to market
This week we stopped at the market for a few Twix bars for a special birthday friend
and came out with Twix bars & half-price cottage roses.
No, I did not go in to buy roses
but half price?
And they smell amazing too unlike some of the hybrid roses.
I think it might possibly be a crime to have left them at the store.
So... it happened.
4. Rainy day weekend
It has been in the 70's and 80's this week but it is supposed to rain over here this weekend.
Aside from perking up the grass and making everything look gorgeous outside
I love a day of rain for inspiring me to just take some time and create something.
Whether it is designing and photographing something
working on writing projects or just putting the finishing touches on a creative project.
I am thinking of making another flower cone for our front door - simple and easy to create and so charming made out of chicken wire.
You can find more ideas for using leftover chicken wire- here
5. A fresh coat of paint
Since it is Spring and I am feeling the need to lighten and brighten
I am getting ready to freshen our knotty pine walls with a coat of paint.
They looked like this when we moved in...
and look like this currently.
I go back and forth on the best shade of white- and honestly, white is hard.
They seem to be either too yellow, too blue, too gray, too pink, too stark, too creamy.
But I am picking up a couple of samples to try and will compare a couple different ones
and share my thoughts in case you are looking for the right white as well.
To see more about our knotty pine walls and the transformation -

That is about it for this Saturday musing post.
