Pretty top and a pretty lighthouse

I am participating in 
Visual FBFF 
(Fashion Beauty Friend Friday group is created by Katy at Modly Chic
We're doing an upclose and personal look at a favorite clothing item.

 So I wore this top to feature its lovely details. Found this at a street bazaar in Turkey (Alacati). I just fell in love with not only the cut but also the tie die minty pastel colors and all the stitching details...

Layered stone necklaces in mint green and purple....
 These don't really go but I needed comfy shoes...

 Wearing the cat eye sunglasses again today. Since they were mint green couldn't resist...

Before I move onto today here are a few photos from our Bingo play last night:

We took the kids to the old Lighthouse today at a neighborhood cold Point Loma. This is actually the spot my husband and I got married at! It was the first time I was going back since our wedding in 2005!
It was the perfect spot because I am obsessed with lighthouses which all started with a book called 'Ahab's Wife' and trip to Maine which is also where my husband proposed!
Kids loved climbing the little house and seeing its rooms. Such a cute place. My dad came with us as well and kids loved having him all to themselves.
Enjoy the photos...

Floor plan:
Downstairs has the living room and kitchen/dining room. Upstairs is a master bedroom and a kids' room. No toilets or showers!

Spiral Staircase:

Beautiful views all around...

My crazy daughter with my Dad:

And this is the new lighthouse way down below...

TONIGHT we are going to meet friends to have a picnic dinner in the park and then watch a movie in the park. The movie is 'Tangled'. Packed PJs and sleeping bags so lets see how long kids last past their bedtime...
