one of my favorite things to do is pick out the perfect covered button to go on each posy pin.  its just a tiny detail, but i love doing it!

 i so rarely clean out my fridge.  its just not where i want to spend my time that i will never get back.  but the lovely people at fridge coaster sent me these pretty coasters for my fridge!  i cleaned out the whole fridge and now every time i open the fridge i just think it looks so good!

silas is the king of “nuggles”.  i still manage to convince him that they are a necessity most days.  the face buried into my neck is a long time favorite ;)

 a friend needed to borrow some globes for a shower she was throwing.  i just love how different they all are and how pretty they are together.

 every year our school has a fundraiser auction.  the theme is always based on the history we’re studying.  since we’re currently studying the westward settling of our nation, our theme is the wild west!  we goth this amazing barn for our venue!  i’ll definitely share more pics as we finish setting up.

we spent a few hours pretending we were florists as we put together all the centerpieces.

my dad has had this clock in his dental office as long as i can remember.  since he’s nearing retirement and has moved into a new building, his clock needed to find a new home – mine!  i love the orange-y red color!

 san luis obispo has a great farmer’s market that is year round.  we just happened to be there on a night that the cal poly marching band decided to march down the middle of the street!

it was one of those nights that i was just so happy living where we are – being with my family, eating messy bbq street food in the street, watching street performers, family all around.  just happiness.

we have a crazy busy weekend of prepping for the fundraiser and finishing science projects.  i hope you have a good one!

    I’ve visited San Luis Obispo many times and LOVE the farmers market! It’s been way to long since I’ve been there. We camp in San Simeon every summer and try to make it to the farmers market while we are there but didn’t get to the last couple of times. :)

    I just love your Friday pics! They always make me smile. Didn’t realize your dad is a dentist. I am a hygienist:)

    I think I nearly had a heart attach when I saw the chevron and polka dotted fabric in your collection. I can’t take it! PS – I love your new/old clock!

    did you get bbq from the guys who are so entertaining? we traveled thru SLO in Jan & went to the farmer’s market & it was great. my husband’s bbq pork sandwich would have fed our family of 4 :)
