$30 Plaid shirt in perspective

Normally I would say $30 is entirely too much to spend on a shirt. But, three weekends ago, that's exactly what I paid for this lovely piece of top-half clothing. I have worn it no less that four times in the last 2.5 weeks, making me feel very justified in spending that $30 on this shirt rather than 4 lunches out, 2 nights at the movies, 1 round of golf, or two-thirds a tank of gas. Because, really, it gives me much more pleasure than 4 cafe rio burritos. Or any of those other things, really. Really.

Huntington Beach for the 4th

Ty and I are taking off for a firework-filled weekend in Huntington Beach for the 4th! Back to the sunny, beach-breezy days of spending the holiday riding bikes down the riverbed to join the madness in Newport and Balboa.

Ty's never been to Huntington, so I'm excited to show him all the hot spots.  Like...you know...the house I grew up in, my favorite place to grab breakfast on main street, my neighbor's houses, the riverbed bike trail...stuff like that. We may hit up the Balboa frozen banana shack, the Corona Del Mar tide pools, the Pier, the fireworks at the Newport dunes and a few other things too, I suppose. Happy 4th everyone!
