Friday Finds #30

Holy Friday Batman! Can not believe its already here, and there's still so much to happen this weekend! I gotta say though, after the last few weeks I've felt like we've come to a place in our summer where if we didn't actually do anything else official, I would be contented about how we've lived through the season (cept I'm still looking forward to more swimming, and the county fair:)).  

This week I found...

...this cute and comfy outfit for the beach. Lovin' the lacy floppy hat, and those minty shorts are killer:)
Summer/Beach Outfit

...this amazing picture of a sandcastle!! can you believe its made out of sand? I couldn't even make that with...something easier to make things with then sand! haha

...this adorable shot of piggies swimming together. the end.

...this recipe for an apricot tartlette! I've always disliked apricots since I was little, eating dried and sweaty apricots on long car rides, but Martin's changed that all around for me:)

...this shot of the North Shore in Hawaii. To me, north shore = total near-death experience while with my sister and her hubby, but it also means a really fun couples vacation! haha
North Shore-Haleiwa

...this wonderful spread of kababs. Mmmm, I know what I'm having for dinner!

...this drawing in the sand. love.

...this fantastic vintage picture of some King Tritent and his mermaids:) So cute!

...this pair of fringe bikinis! Very bohomien I think wouldn't you say?

...this rather yummy looking pina colada smoothie from Paula Deen. Sounds so good right now, and I'm not even a fan of pina colada! haha

fresh pineapple, coconut milk, banana, honey & ice. a healthy Hawaiian blizzard

...this shot of a bonfire on the beach. Takes me back to when my family would stay on the beach together till after dark and all the other people had left. Miss those times.

What things are you still hoping to get done before the cool weather comes?
