Amgen Tour of California

I can describe this event in one word: AMAZING!!

There was an energy that filled the streets like I have never experienced before. So many people were there, it was . . .well . . . amazing!

One of the cutest things I saw was this:

Look closely . . . see the dogs in the backpacks? I spoke with the owner (who, by the way, made the backpacks) and she said the pooches just love going on a ride.

Here are more pics from the event . . . it was just so cool!

It was a long day, but I gotta tell ya, it was fantastic! I hope the Tour of California comes back to Escondido next year!

He was Right!

Santa didn't have his sleigh today . . . after all, it is off-season for him . . . I guess that's why the big brown truck brought 61 lbs (SIXTY-ONE!) of sparkly goodness!

Yahoo! ALL of the Shimmering Mists & Radiant Rain Daubers from Luminarte have arrived! AND, there's new packaging for the Shimmering Mists! It now comes in a flip-top bottle with an empty spritzer!

some of you may recall that I had listed a different company, but it is my job to keep an eye out for the best value for you. Let's just put it this way . . . shimmering mist-wise, you get twice as much for $1.00 less! Dauber-wise, you get the same amount for $2.00 less! besides, Luminarte's customer service just can't be beat! I am confident that you will love Luminarte's Radiant Rain as much as I do!

Look Who Stopped By!


In February!
And look what he brought! All the NEW Flower Soft!

And, he even let me know that another package of sparkly goodness will be arriving a bit later this afternoon!
