Happy Earth Day Dig Down and Get Dirty 2013

Happy Earth Day Dig Down and Get Dirty, 2013, beckycharms, Earth Day, earth friendly, Earth, San Diego, life, lifestyle, California, family, family fun,

We celebrated Earth Day {Weekend} by playing in the Earth and digging in the dirt.  Tiny Baker receives so much joy from the simplest pleasures in this world.  They fulfill her life.  I mean, have you seen that smile?

Apparently, she made a mud cake, and wanted me to eat it.  She cut me a slice with her hands, and then fed it to me.  Alright, "fed"it to me.  {-smile-}  It was so tasty.. and earthy! 

Happy Earth Day to everyone.. even if we're a little late in saying.

Happy Birthday Mister I Believe You're Turning Forty

I want to throw/host the best birthday party my husband has ever had! Mr. Google turns the big 4-0 this year {August}.. 4 decades of life experience, and I'm looking into an amazing venue in San Diego on the strictest humble teacher's salary ever! He works for Cajon Valley, he's a Special Ed. teacher and works with at-risk kids.. he's a pioneer in his district for introducing and implementing technology in the classroom, he was the first in his district to discover the CUE conference, he looks up to Sir Ken Robinson, and is passionate about his career and calling. He has overcome the most obstacles in life, yet continues to pursue his dreams. I've never thrown him a party. This must be the year. Who will help me, San Diego? How much to rent San Diego Public Market or something similar? Maybe a coffee shop, or something.. if you have any info/leads, please pass them along to me! #gratitude #appreciation #partytime I really want to "WOW" him.. he's not easily "WOW"ed.

Please message me/comment with any ideas, suggestions, helpful information!

I will happily accept donations, rental space free of charge, party decorations, etc.  You get the idea.  

Let's plan this party.. together!  I have tons of ideas, but they all depend on the party space.. Am I right, or am I right?

In West Philadelphia Born and Raised I Lived Never but I Sing the Song

{To the tune of Fresh Prince of Bel Air TV theme song..}
[original lyrics by BeckyCharms]

In West Philadelphia, Mourned and Hazed
On the blacktop is where I soaked in most of my rays
Pilling out, Jack'd in, Relaxing with drool
Shooting up while the cool kids played outside the school

When a couple of flies they were buzzing my dude
Made him get so mad and a' super rude

I looked in one little eye and my dog's teeth bared
He growled and immediately I thought I better bounce, I'm scared.

.....

Thanks for the fresh beats and lyrical magic from which to be inspired.  You' so fresh, Fresh Prince of Bel Air{Will Smith}.
