Wedding bells ring

This weekend we went to Manhattan Beach for a lovely wedding and to visit family. My parents were sweet enough to watch X & J, so we could get away. I've got plenty of pictures to show you... so SPF 50 will do!

Can you smell the ocean breeze? Just in time for lunch!

Table for 2(SQUEAL!!!!).

Lovely flowers along the out door patio. Perfect for Fall=0)

Strolling back to the car...just love this flower shop.

It's just a block from the beach....ahhhhhh.

Yummy ribs and time=0)

The wedding was in gorgeous Palos Verdes.

Beautiful glass chapel.

What a gorgeous view. The water was so blue!

Now back to Manhattan Beach for the reception.

I really wish my back yard could look like this. A guitar player for fun events wouldn't hurt either, LOL. He played such calm music, it was so nice.

This fountain is just the right size and I just loved the brick.

There is my date getting me a glass of chardonnay=0)

The inside was so beautiful. I love hydrangeas and baby blue/cream colored bows on the chairs. I also couldn't wait for a piece of that cake in the back ground!!!! I was VERY happy because it was big enough for me to get seconds, LOL!!!

So I was finally able to take a few pictures of my early paintings that I've given away as gifts.
This one is about four years old! It's very large and took me about 4 months to complete. It's funny to see how my stroke technique has changed. I also remembered it darker, LOL! I also made a BIG mistake....can you see it? Something is missing=0)

This watercolor is almost 8 years old and one of my very firsts. Sorry there is so much reflections on the glass. This was the best I could do. The matte is actually a dark blue and it's on a yellow wall. I love the way it's on display in the family room=0)

I had a super fun family breakfast just before we drove home. Anything that includes hash browns and a truck load of crunchy bacon will always bring a smile to my face, LOL!

Have a COLORFUL week,


My other job........
My Mama-X is upset, can you calm him down?
Me-Hello X?
X-I CAN'T TIE MY SOCCER SHOES!!!!!!!! Wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! Nobody else can do it like you!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Me-We will practice when I get home. Please let Tito or Tita do it. You are going to be late.
X-NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's not the same way you do it!!!!!
