Last Day of Summer

welp, today was the last day of summer for us
kids are tucked in tightly 
sleeping til morning light
ready to go to school tomorrow

i have to say we had a wonderful summer
we nurtured friendships
we took walks
we held each other tight
we spent days in the sun
we loved each other
we stayed up late
we slept in late
we watched movies together
we took road trips
we discovered new places
new beaches
new land
we visited family
we laughed
we took naps
we tried new things
we stayed close to home
we played games

and of course we ended it with our annual
summer movie night

24 bags of target popcorn
sprinkled with chocolate yummies

we watched RIO
it was great
perfect way to end the summer


such a great summer
sad it's over
but happy to see what the new school year start
it's going to be a good one
i just know it

Baseball - Softball Necklace

we are so nuts about this necklace
that we had to post it
it's big
it's fun
and it has our look, an organic feel
just what we wanted
l.o.v.e. it

it's available 

Our Last Mini Vaca of Summer

we had so much fun
lazy days
afternoon drinks
family time

friendship bracelet
we had good intentions 
but never did figure it out 

incase we ever learn we definitely have supplies for it

took a ton of pictures

the weather was great

one sad the other happy 

off to the pool
love that one has her journal and pen, ready to write
she always does

my mama
i love her so very much

and this kid. 
i couldn't be more happier to be her mom.

this girl kills me
makes us laugh every day

we had a great time
felt a little short
but enjoyed every minute of it

only a few days left
off to enjoy what's left

Metal Jewelry, Elastic Hair Ties and More

summer is slowly coming to an end
we are enjoying lots of time with friends
the weather is great

so great 
that last week at the beach
we told the kids (8 of them)
the moms would boogie board after lunch
well sure enough
after lunch we headed to the ocean 
waves and all
and when i say waves

like 6-8 foot waves

 we caught a few little ones
haven't laughed that hard in ages
felt great
then i decided to go out a little further
catch even a bigger one
well. that i did
didn't quite make it
crashed and hit chin first into shallow water
yep, i hit the sand
got a slight concussion
sprained my neck
and my jaw feels out of alignment 
i have no pictures yet, they are my bff's camera
here is one she sent me
i am on the right....
she sent it small so it's hard to see
but what i can tell you is 
that i practically pee'd my pants walking out into the ocean
i haven't boogie boarded in years
and the first couple we caught together,
our mouths were WIDE open with laughter
so crashing was the total
kill joy
but the dr. said that i am lucky to have
landed on my chin and not my head
could have been a lot worse

i am on my way to recovery
going to the dr. again tomorrow 


it seems to be a busy time for sosobella
having fun creating new goodies
all are listed on our etsy site

we are having a blast with the new hair ties

hope your end of summer is good

Recap on Our Weekend

our girls dance
and this time so did their dad
they had their annual dance recital this past weekend
and yes, our studio had a daddy/daughter dance
and yes their daddy got his groove on
it was a michael jackson medley 
the dads got 8  8 counts on their own
then their daughters RAN out to join them and dance
i can't even begin to share with
you the joy that was shared between all who watched
the girls were so excited to dance with their dads
the dads danced and counted out loud along with the music
it was so dang sweet that the first time i watched it
i felt like i had had a great massage or had had a really good drink
it left my body weak and happy all at the same time
i laughed, hoot and hollered
it was the best

here is a recap of our weekend

great balls of fire - tap
hope this goes to competition, it was a great dance

right before they went on

crazy dads stretching
doing leg holds
the girls got a kick out of that

just looking at this gives me the giggles

so incredibly proud of this guy

aunts, uncles, cousins, grandmas, grandpas
they all came to watch
so happy to have family who love them

my girls were in awh of this little guy
who wouldn't be, right
he is such a cutie pie

we had a great weekend
i worked back stage both nights
had so much fun with the other moms
got to sneak out and see my girls numbers
so fun
so happy they have the dance teachers they have
they are great roll models
and they love my girls
