The Beach

(not to rub it in but...)Sometimes we forget the beach is only a two minute drive from our house. Tonight we decided to just go after dinner and had a blast!

Dry Erase Board

I've had this dry erase board up in my kitchen for the past few years. It helps me keep track of everything I need to do and everywhere I need to be but it wasn't too pretty.

I decided it needed a makeover. I was inspired by this and another blog that I can't seem to find now.

I used a frame I already had. I bought the yellow fabric cheap at the Crate and Barrell Outlet (another reason I love living here). I cut the yellow fabric to be a little bit bigger than the insert in the frame and then used duct tape to wrap the front of the insert with the fabric.

Then I used a permanent marker and drew the lines and words on the back of the plastic part of the frame. I wrote the words on the front with a dry erase marker and then was able to trace them in mirror image on the back.

I think it adds a nice little burst of color to my pantry door!

Even with the most fancy-schmancy camera, there's nothing like a photobooth strip of pictures. This one is from our trip to the San Diego Zoo today.

What we're up to...

We're staying in shape! Dennis introduced me to a few Crossfit Workouts (serious next day soreness!)
We've been eating yummy food. You wouldn't believe how much this little thing eats.
We've been learning and graduating from school with the coolest teacher ever (when not teaching preschool this awesome lady is a surfer!)

I've been sewing a bit. Here's a little set I made for my friend having a baby boy (and a picture from Elyse with images of the baby and the big brother...apparently the baby is going to come out with a toupee!)
And we've been hanging out with some good friends.

What have you been up to?
