In & Out

I finally made it to In & Out Burger. We don't have this on the East coast so going here was quite a treat. My aunt informed me that everything there is made on the spot, fresh. Mmmmm. I was really dig'n the fries. They weren't too greasy, very soft. The coolest little secret was on the bottom of the drink cups- John 3:16- For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. Pretty spiffy.

John 3:16

Thumbs up, good stuff!

This face is priceless.

Mission accomplished.

Orange County Fair

As most of you know I am a HUGE fan of fairs. I absolutely love the energy, vendors, petting zoos and yes you guessed correctly - FUNNEL CAKES AND HOMEMADE LEMONADE. I waited all year for these two amazing food items and sadly did not get them on the 4th of July (the vendor ran out and nearly broke my heart). Being in California I went to the Orange County Fair and FINALLY got my funnel cake and lemonade. Not only did I get what I waited for all summer but I also got to hang out with some amazing people. Thanks Lauren for having me, I enjoyed spending time with you, your brother, and sister!

Worms eye view - welcome to my life. Btw, the
lemonade was fantastic!

Dream come true.

The big cheese. Woo hoo.

You are looking stunning ladies!

Mad skill.

Craft time! Oh I miss those days...

Best tea party ever, should of been there for this one.

This little tike was looking to feed some animals
at the petting zoo.

This lady was so cute with a rad style. Loved her!

God Speaks Through Books & Music

Last week (again behind on blogging) I went to Newport Beach to just enjoy the sun and read. I am currently reading Soul Cravings by Erwin McManus. I recommend it to everybody. Christian or not. The author travels deep within the soul of man and discusses what the soul yearns for. The book will really speak to you!
Following the beach I went to hear Brian Gentry play in the Upper Room. His band is called Marvin & Gentry. Led by the Lord and Influenced by such artists as Simon & Garfunkel you can only imagine how amazing this band is. Check out their bio and music on

Orange County Art Museum

Last week I went to the Orange County Museum of Art. I took my camera and the lady at the front desk told me that I could only take photos of the installation at the front door - 100 Pounds of Clay by Charles Long. That is exactly what I did! I was more intrigued by the creatures everyone else had made then creating my own. I even made two
new friends in the process!

Zoo of creatures.

One of my favorites!! Call me a hippy but I love the world!

I kind feel bad for it.

Sawdust Festival

If only it would have fit in my suitcase!

I ran into Patrick Moran as he was working on this piece. How lucky was I?

Art was everywhere, even on the meters!

Last week I went to the annual Sawdust Festival in Laguna Beach. It was absolutely amazing! There were so many talented artists and craftsman from all over southern California. You couldn't walk two feet without something catching your eye. Below are some of the artists I really enjoyed, check
out their work!
