Flower, fleas, and a birthday

(happy fleas from the flea market, not the icky little black ones)

Happy Monday everyone! It was such a sunny and beautiful weekend here in SoCal (like 84 degrees) and we definitely took advantage . First up today I would like to wish a super duper special and happy b-day to my sweet husband!! 35 never looked so HOT! I love you babe, you make my world go round!!
(Noah picked out the balloons last night and we surprised him this morning...and the Snickers - it's his fave).

Hayden and I went to the florist today (aka Trader Joe's) and got some pretty flowers. It's definitely feeling like Spring in here :)
Hayden picked these out for for her daddy. She told me that pink was his favorite color like hers. Sweet!
and I picked these pretties out for myself...
Mmmm....Freesia. They smell soooo yummy!

I also snatched up this cute pail-o-daffodils :)
This flower is the definition of Spring beauty to me. SO pretty! Can't wait for the other buds to bloom.

I also wanted to share a couple fleas I picked up yesterday at the flea market. I went solo this time because my sis is still in Ollie land, and my other peeps were busy. It was fun to just silently wander around (in the 84 degree heat) and have some quality "me" time. ha ha! I even sat on a bench in the sun and ate an ear of fire roasted corn on the cob from the neighboring farmer's market. Mmm mmm. Just me, the food, and the fleas :) Anyway, I got this super adorable piggy bank for $5. I'm pretty much in love with her. Can you see why??
Oink oink :)
I also snatched up this milk glass bowl for a few bucks. I usually go for more decorative ones, but I like this large sturdy bowl. I may plant a succulent in it or something. We shall see :)
So, there you have it. Flowers, fleas, and a birthday!
May you all have a fabulous week! I plan to ;)
