Thrifty thursday.

I am in full on thrifting mode lately I've been going a few times a week stocking up for the camas vintage faire coming up in August. This weeks big finds were some pretty great ones but my favorite was definitely bialetti i've been hoping I would have some luck one day and find one at the thrift store and I sure did for $5 I was so excited and still in its box. I used it for the first time the other day and I am in love it makes the best coffee I am hooked. The other stuff will be going into my booth. I am getting so excited the closer it gets I am still on the search for a project or two to fix up. I still need to get some business cards made to have at the booth as well I've heard good things about vista print and moo. I like the look of moo's cards better but they seem to be quite a bit more money.

Hopefully I have the thrift gods this weekend when I go back out on the search for some goodies.

Mothers day adventure.

Yesterday we celebrated mothers day by making my moms favorite breakfast which is strawberry stuffed french toast. So I made her just that. She really wanted to go somewhere but it was supposed to rain a lot so the beach was out of the question which is what she originally wanted to do. So my step dad suggested going up to Larch mountain because apparently you can see all of Mount Hood, Mount Adams, Mount Jefferson, Mount Rainier, and Mount St. Helens So we were all super excited. Now what we should of looked up the road conditions as there was a "snow" closure. We saw a road closed sign to motor vehicles so we ventured on foot thinking it can't be THAT far to the path. Well we were wrong we walked up the road about almost three miles and found no path so we decided that it was best to turn around since it started to down pour and we still had to walk back to the car and make it to my sisters for a mothers day dinner. It was still a lot of fun to just go out and do something like this with my mom. We used to do stuff like this when we were all younger and living at home so it was nice. We will be going back when the roads open which is supposed to be around mid to end of July. *fingers crossed* I did snap some pictures along the way though.

We found parts of cars along the way.

We drove passed the view point inn which was sad to see all grown over and the building still burned. It caught fire back in the summer of 2011 after some sparks from the chimney started the fire. After some looking into they have been starting to rebuilt and reopen. They have where you can donate to help save the view point inn any amount helps. You can donate right on their site help save the view point inn . I heard they need to raise 1 million dollars. But I think if everyone pitches in it could work I hope it gets put back together It has such an amazing view to. After our little adventure we spent the evening at my sisters for a bbq dinner and a pie I made it was just the perfect mothers day.

The water was even starting to feel warm and thats when you know its a hot day that the oregon coast feels warm.

Beach bumming all day and I loved it.
We ended it grabbing burgers at our favorite little burger place on our way out of town then went back to the beach to eat our dinner. beachday
After a day filled with sunshine it was a blast even now that I look a little more like a tomato. I could only find my 15 spf instead of my 50 so I got a tad burned. I hope we can go back soon I am missing it already and hopefully for longer we usually go a few times in the summer for a few days. I can't wait till we go again. It was the perfect way to spend a sunday and end the weekend on a high note. I hope you all had a fantastic weekend.
