3 Things {4th of July Edition}.

When it comes to 4th of July weekend in Palm Springs, one thing's for sure, you are in for a H-O-T weekend. It's key to find the right activities to beat the heat. Weather like this calls for refreshing morning swims, going to the movies, {indoor} happy hours, and as always, a delicious dinner at The River. An added bonus was having access to some delightful jewelry from several decades ago - although I swear it could easily find a home in my own jewelry box today. The only thing I did miss was fireworks, but considering I'm not the biggest fan of them that's just fine with me.

1. I saw Midnight in Paris; making me want to lose myself in Paris to the shopping, food, and sightseeing. And of course, taking walks in the rain at midnight.

2. Whipping up my specialty bruschetta. Although I left the tomatoes off the portion I ate, I made up for it by adding more caramelized onions. Rave reviews!

3. Playing with my bf's grandmother's jewelry box, just like I did when  I was a little girl. Funny how the 50's style fun, funky jewelry has made such a comeback and is so relevant now. Just my style.

*Ziggy doesn't love the loud fireworks either, but I'm happy to report Ziggy made it through the booming noise without so much as a whimper. He's such a good boy.


  1. Hey, lady! Found your blog through the week's IFB "homework."

    I love what you did with this project - and that bruschetta looks delicious!
