Last weekend I got together with my friend Nikki who lives in Pasadena. Pasadena is one of my favorite cities in Southern California. I love the architecture, and the many large trees that line it’s streets. We spent a really fun (and hot) day at the Rose Bowl Flea Market and then headed into Old Town for a little shopping and good eats . . .
Unfortunately most vendors @ the Rose Bowl Flea Mkt don’t allow photos of their booths, so I didn’t get many photos of the wares, however, I did catch this lady mid-twerk next to this hand painted sign booth . . . #priceless
Love the brick, awning and all-over look of Old Town Music (this is actually the back of the store) . . .
It’s been a year or so since I’ve eaten at my favorite Argentinean restaurant, 1810. I dream about their empañadas. I love the interior atmosphere of this restaurant just as much as I love the food . . .
After lunch Nikki and I headed over to Crossroads Trading for some light “thrifting.” ♥
Of course I just couldn’t pass by this perfect brick, stone and birch backdrop without getting an #ootd shot for the #30daynorepeat challenge I am participating in on Instagram . . . ☺ This photo challenge is really forcing me to get comfortable in front of the camera. I prefer to stay behind it, but a challenge to my introversion is always good for growth! Lol! ☺
The kids and I spent some time at the park after school on Tuesday. I can’t believe they have just completed 2nd and 3rd grade!!! Father Time has wings . . . !
Had a brainstorming meeting on Wednesday and got to move my office outdoors. It’s so nice to have a change of scenery while working. The outdoor breeze was so calming . . .
Have you guys ever tried Boom Chicka Pop? My friend Cathy brought it over for the boys playdate on Thursday. She has been so supportive of my gluten free diet. She always comes bearing gifts and introducing me to different gluten free treats! I love the packaging colors and typography. You can find BCP at Target . . .
Hope you guys are having a fabulous weekend. Are you ready for Father’s Day?
