Fun Little Gifts
I am making alot of my gifts this year, but I am looking for 
little extras to add to make them even more fun. 

Bath aromas that look like tea.

Take Me Away...

I was fixed on this balloon shot I found on one of my favorite blogs SfGirlByBay, and it inspired me to find more fun shots of balloons. They are always colorful, and fun it is hard to resist them. They have a take me away to another place, escape feel to them.

These two are just for fun, the first one is from another favorite blog, because I do not understand how she is so perfect, A Beautiful Mess. She is my encouragement everyday that it is possible to be successful with your own store, it just takes a lot of hard work, but I am ready! It was in her new store opening of RedVelvet, (which is also perfect), it is a dollhouse with so many fun, colorful balloons, inspired by the movie Up.

This picture is just too funny for words. Are you kidding me! It is called light breakfast, all the food are shaped balloons on a gigantic plate. How fun!

Happy Day, new posts for Baybeesteps later this week!

Walk With Me to Sunshine Gardens...

There is an awesome family owned garden center in Encinitas that I have grown up with, I stopped by today to start thinking about what plants I want to replant in my pots on our window garden. I love this place, they used to be in a different location and they are still making this new location their own. They don't just lay out the plants they set each area up like a mini yard. I love going here.

Happy Day!

One Saturday Morning...

Good morning! Do you remember the run of cartoons on ABC on Saturday mornings when you were a kid? They were my favorite! This morning I went for a short run and walked on down to the beach thinking I would wander around the tide pools for a while, only to find the tide was all the way up to the stairs, so I ran a few sets of stairs and watched the surfers for a little bit. I love mornings.
