– The Beach….in February. My youngest and I spent Wednesday morning at the beach and it was AMAZING. The weather was gorgeous, the water was blue and we most definitely walked away with refreshed souls. Seeing as I’ve had NO INTERNET this whole week, the beach seemed like the best option, considering I could get some work done while sitting in the sun and relaxing next to the crashing waves. It. Was. Heavenly. As we left, my 3 year old said to me, “Mom, that was the best!”. Yes, son, it sure was. (iPhone photo)

– Lunch with my little girl. Every week, I try to make it a point to eat lunch with my little first grader at her school. I absolutely love that parents are allowed in for lunch time, and I am so thankful she still loves it too! I remember my parents eating lunch with me at school as well, and think the memories that are being made are priceless. This is most definitely one of the highlights of my week.

– Speaking of lunch, I have to admit that I stopped for lunch at Calistoga 3 times this week. I am head over heels in love with their Santa Rosa sandwich and Calistoga salad. The pesto aioli on the Santa Rosa is so so good, and mixing that with turkey and ham, a few slices of cheese, bacon pieces, as well as some lettuce and tomato on ciabatta bread….DELISH! Also, Calistoga offers free internet access, which is a big bonus when your internet at home is falling apart. (iPhone photo)

– These reusable lunch baggies on etsy.com. If you just do a search, so many fabulous ones will come up. We go through so many little sandwich bags and not only are these a million times cuter, but so much more practical! Best of all, everyone can use them! Go get some!!

– Netflix streaming on the XBOX360. Who knew? This week, afters year’s of having Netflix and a long, long time of having the Xbox, my wonderful husband filled me that we could stream movies instantly with the push of a button. It was so fun searching them and then deciding what we wanted to watch…all from the couch. Not only am I thrilled, but my kids are LOVING having access to so many great movies!

Here’s hoping this weekend is filled with lots of sun (and warm winter weather for you northerners!), some good internet access and great times with family and friends! Happy Friday!
