Saturday Happy

Going to the water park was a big treat for us growing up. Living in a small and rural community that meant driving an hour and half to Palm Springs and hitting up Knott's Soak City during the summer. I could handle most of the rides like relaxing and tanning on inner tubes down the lazy river and running back to the top to go down the winding and twisting slides over and over. There was one particular slide I just couldn't push myself to try. Once I got a little older and finally had the courage to go down that tall and intimidating slide, I wanted to go again and again. 
This artist, photographer Krista Long wanted to capture a particular moment for her I Love Summer photo series. You know that moment when flying out of the slide and catapulting into the air before hitting the water? She wanted to catch that frame!  Do you remember if you would purposely make a funny pose or did you just go with the flow?! I'm so curious to know! Here are a few of the images she pinned to her summer series :) So what's making you happy this week?

Friday Showings

I got hooked into the show My Boys right when it premiered back in 2006 on TBS while I was living in Indiana. After spending a little bit of time in Chicago, I loved how the show revolved around my favorite city, baseball and a stellar cast. Disappointed it only lasted four seasons, there is still a place in my heart for My Boys. What are you watching this weekend? 

Friday Mornings

Happy Friday everyone, I hope you had a fantastic week! I am starting my weekend off quite well, I wrapped up my science experiments at the library with a bang and have started prepping for my last book discussion for the summer reading program. Other than a great yin yoga session last night, my weekend is wide open, what are your plans? This large and quite comfy comforter looks a little too inviting for a lazy morning, don't you think? See you Monday morning :)

this week's favorites

A good morning should start with a little Vinyasa and a little deep stretching to warm the body up. A few of these are my favorite poses and others are goals to work towards. How do you start your day off?

On the Town

We certainly are no L.A. when it comes to night clubs or swanky bars, but there are few places I've tried and others that remain on my to do list to check out. Moving back after college, my home town looked completely different since I had grown up a bit. I started to realize how much activity really goes on in this mostly well known resort town. With Palm Springs giving in a bit to the younger and hip lifestyle, the desert is starting to attract a new crowd. The night life isn't crazy, but to be honest it is kind of nice being able to stroll into a bar without having to wait around the corner to get in. I would mostly stay in Downtown Palm Springs and enjoy walking the main street, Palm Canyon.  Karaoke, Jazz, Country or Dance party, whatever you're in the mood for, we've got it :)
