{simple summer weekends}

Hello and Happy Monday to you!!!!
What a weekend it was:)

I love summer....have I mentioned that to you!?!?!?
I just love everything little thing about summer....going to the beach....fun times with friends {and having the energy to have fun times with friends}....listening to music outside...just being able to be outside.!!!

This weekend my friend and I went to the beach and it was perfect.
The morning started off pouring buckets of rain.....but lucky for us...things cleared up into a fabulous day:)
You can tell the sand was still wet when we got there!

and it was super hot and humid....my kind of weather:) Maybe that's why the beach was pretty empty!
After the beach....we went to The Stray Dog and had a little lunch!

Then we cleaned up and went out to see one my most FAVORITE local bands.

Little Frank:)

I love...love...love music! If you were to ever stop over on a whim....you'd never catch me watching t.v. but you might find that I have music playing:)
and I love the music of Little Frank... I call it bluesy funky!

I also found a new beer I love! It's not often that I drink beer....you know I am a wine girl.
But this beer is so light and refreshing....give it a whirl ....you might like it:)


And them my stars aligned...

I got to meet Little Frank!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I realized he is younger than me......I would have thought that he would be older...but ....nope...i'm the older one:) Thank goodness my husband was kind enough to take lots of photos for me!

He's not super famous or maybe he is!?!? Who knows....but i've really admired his music for at least 10 years!!! And that night was the night that I got to chat with him! How fun:)
and he was kind enough to let us take lots of pictures!!!!!!!!
Did I mention that I love summer!?!!? It's just such a fun season! And it's always the little things that make me the happiest:)
Sure hope you had a fabulous weekend too!!!!!!!!!!

  3. What a lovely weekend! I love the beach and music! Although I too am a wine girl, I just may try the beer you recommended!! Enjoy an amazing week!

  4. Love your ring! I wear a big chunky turquoise ring too, it's my favorite color, especially for summertime.

    Oh, and that beer can has a way cute design on it... turquoise too? ha ha


  5. You are one of the happiest people I have met in blogland! :)

    I also love the summer traditions of al fresco, breathing in summer air, blowing bubbles, growing my garden, and the list goes on.

  6. I'm glad the summer is in full swing in your corner up there!!! Cute lighthouse!!!!

  7. Looks like you had the beach pretty much to yourselves. Sounds like a perfect beachy weekend.

  8. looks like so much fun and you look fab! What beach is that, looks so pretty!

    Summer Shandy...sounds like YOU!
    Since you love hot and humid weather, you should come here...96 degrees today, with 98% humidity!!! I'll make it outdoors today...after 4pm (or else I will be fried!)

  10. mm I love that brand of beer! I'm not a huge beer drinker but from what I've tasted of that brand, I love them!

  11. Well, I also spent the weekend at the beach and found a new beer! I'm also not much of a beer drinker, but Longboard Island Lager from Hawaii was crisp and refreshing on a hot summer day. Summer Shandy sounds delicious also, I'll have to give that one a try.


  12. Sooooo happy that you're in your element right now! Hot weather and a summer blues fest with your fave guy?? Perfecto! And I loooove cold beer in the summer so I'm gonna try and find this one. Even tho I looked EVERYWHERE around here for your cool summer wine labels and could never find them.....waaaaaa....all the good vino must be way up there!!
    But guess what? We're thinking of getting a motor home and traveling the states....heheh...I may show up in your neck of the woods yet!!

  13. What a fun weekend! I could not live without music - no way, no how!

    I am a total wine drinker too but that beer just looks cool : ) I might have to give it a go - if I can find it here.

  14. Such a wonderful weekend! I really enjoy reading and looking at all your gorgeous photos! Makes me feel happy! You girls look sooo beautiful! Have a lovely merry happy week and love to you!

  15. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun!! I love the photo of the lighthouse!! (I love lighthouses!!)

  16. I am so glad that you got to go to the beach! Aren't you glad that school is out and now you can play too? Looks like a lovely day!


  17. i love your dress!...where can i find one. your blog is awesome, so full of fun!


  18. Haha, what an AMAZING weekend!! Yay!

  19. This is what I always try to to remember during the cold winters! look like so much fun!

  20. Super cute black dress! Thats my kind of summer day. Can't beat a good local band. Thats what I like about going downtown...it is full of the arts- music, painting, sculptures, jewelry, crazy dressed people and friendly, good food and drink...and everyone rides beach cruisers!

    My son was the lead screamer of a band when he was 16...it was fun to follow and caravan them everywhere...I was the band mama!

  21. I MUST try that beer. Right up my alley!!!!!

    You look beautiful. So happy~
