Frivolous Friday! VBS, a Frappuccino and the New Home Store

It’s Frivolous Friday!

Thought I would share some of the fun I squeezed in this week (in between all my portrait sessions and retouching work.)

Yep, this happened #1:

I’m having a blast this week volunteering with photography at my church’s Vacation Bible School!

In addition to helping out anyway I can, I’m also capturing all the fun and sharing hundreds of photographs with parents.

I know parents appreciate seeing what their kiddos are up to at VBS!


**And it will also help parents through the minefield of the age old question:  “What did you do today?”  and the age old answer “Nothing”

Here are some fun facts about Penasquitos Lutheran Church’s Vacation Bible School:

6 days of fun

1 end of the week carnival

6 months of planning

175 kiddos

130 Volunteers!

And this is my annual “VBS Rainbow”  Photo – can you pick out your little one from this bird’s eye view?

And the decorations are so cute!

Beep Beep,  Outta my way I’m headed to church!

and if you ever want to visit a super fun church – let me know – I’ll meet you before the service,  introduce you around, sit with you and treat you to coffee and donuts afterward!

HERE is the whole scoop on that!

Yep, this happened #2:

And get ready to be jaw-dropped, but this week I tried my very first Frappuccino!   #NotKidding   #Pathetic

It was a treat for us volunteers at Vacation Bible School and I couldn’t resist a taste.

I wasn’t going to drink all of it because 180 calories is A LOT for a drink (I’d rather have a cookie!    Nom,  nom, nom…)

But I couldn’t resist a taste… and before I knew it I’d polished off the whole bottle – soooooo good!

I think I’ll have to try a fresh one at a Starbucks someday…GASP!……not right away though, I don’t want too much excitement in one week….ha!

What’s your favorite drink?  Maybe I’ll give it a try!

Yep, this happened #3:

I stopped in the new “At Home” store in Carmel Mountain so I could report back to you.

(You know how I like to take care of you!)

My verdict:  it is AMAZING!

They have some fun holiday decor – for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas!

Fun displays to give inspiration….

Furniture of every shape, size and color….

And an art, mirror, frame section that’s HUGE.

**I’m going to give a shout out to this piece of art — don’t you think it’s a fun way to display and easily change featured photos???

Check out  MY WHOLE VISIT TO THE HOME STORE ON MY BLOG it has the whole scoop and a ton more photos — and the bottom line is it’s definitely worth a visit!
