birthday weekend

I had a wonderful birthday weekend with my hubby and daughter.  My honey cooked me a
pancake breakfast on Saturday (my birthday) and then we headed out with Olivia and Diego
to the dog/kid park.  Stopped by Genova Deli for lunch and then Marc took Olivia to the pool
so I could have some "me" time (so nice)!  We started our evening with a drink at Encuentro
Cafe and Wine Bar and then headed over to Bocanova for our dinner reservation.  Dinner was
SO yummy!  I hope you had a great weekend!  {source}

childhood favs

These books are adorable and really bring one back to their childhood.  I asked
Olivia which one was her favorite and she picked Kitty's ABC.  No surprise, since
she has kitties on her brain - she wants a kitten SO bad!
