Malibizzle

Head over to Kyna's blog, great expectations for a feature on my key lime coconut bars.
I am definitely one person who lives for the weekend, for that chance to sleep in a little bit later, enjoy a second cup of coffee possibly,  and to thumb through the Sunday newspaper primarily to for the coupons. I like to plan out my weekends so by Sunday night, I don't end up asking myself what did I do this weekend with a let down following that question.

This weekend definitely was great, from Friday night with Sean to Saturday with bloggers in Malibu and to Sunday with Sean again, all I want to ask now is can I repeat my weekend?
As I mentioned on Saturday I met up with three other bloggers. Looking over my recent social calendar, I have hung out three weekends out of the last four with other bloggers who have become friends. And I definitely love it. 

So on Saturday, I hung out with Leeann, Lauren of Wayferes and Worksheets and Kate of Nautical by Nature for some Malibu-ing. Leeann and I have hung out before and I looked forward to meeting Lauren and Kate. It was a lot of fun hanging out, all three of them are super sweet. And thanks to Lauren, I know now that Greek pottery have different shapes and different handles depending on the purpose of the jar.
 We started out by having lunch at Duke's in Malibu and after lunch when we were taking photos of the ocean was when I realized I forgot the card for my camera. Who does that? Me is who would be by the ocean with all these gorgeous Malibu views and not being able to take photos. 
Thank you Leeann for taking and sharing photos with me :-)

After lunch, we headed to the Getty Villa right off of the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH). 
As we were walking around the place, we were tempted by crafts known as Mummy Magic, getting to make and paint your own mummy coffin. With foil and strips of paper mache, my mummy coffin definitely didn't look like a coffin but we had a great time doing crafts and talking about how we would sell our mummy creations on Etsy for $50, any takers?

Sunday was Sean's day as he is leaving for 5 days and I wanted to soak in some husband time, although an 8 mile run was in order first. My running partner and I signed up for another half marathon in October. It was hot, it was humid but we managed to knock those 8 miles out. Sean and I went to church then did a bit of shopping then a picnic dinner while listening to the Sunday night concert in the park. Last night's concert in the park was the last one for the summer :-( I always look forward to these evenings with Sean in the summer. 


And that was my fun-filled weekend, how was your weekend?

Sounds like a pretty perfect weekend to me! I wish I knew more bloggers up here in the Bay Area. I've made some incredible friends through blogging, but none of them live in SF! Thankfully, we've had some cross-country girls' trips, but I wish I could see them more often.

Concerts in the park remind me of growing up in Georgia. :)
