Where does the time go?

This pretty much says it all. Time is passing so fast I can’t even be very creative when it comes to my blog.

But we’ve had some beautiful sunsets here in California and because I’m usually on the road at sunset time it’s blurry but you get the idea!! It’s beautiful!

We drove to San Diego for lunch and a sangria by the water and then to grab a delicious slice of cake at Extraordinary Desserts! So yum!!!

Everything is Awesome

OK so you guys may know by now that I don’t act my age and I love to have fun.   Thankfully I’m not alone.  Thank you husband!!!  We act immature and hang out with younger people including my 2 nephews, whom I adore by the way.   They love The Lego Movie and and love that song “Everything is Awesome”. We stopped by on Sunday and started watching the movie with and now that song is stuck in my head.AWESOME! (but I do love it) and it pretty much describes my weekend!

On Saturday we drove to Orange County to try out a new restaurant at Fashion Island in Newport Beach, Red O by Rick Bayless. We know who Rick Bayless is from watching Top Chef and also going to his restaurant in Chicago a few years back.  He specializes in Mexican food and recipes that he learned from little villages in Mexico.  It was DELICIOUS in my opinion. I will definitely want to go back!  The margarita alone did it for me! =)

We then walked around Fashion Island and checked out some stores and discovered a candy store we always visit in Vegas is now in Newport Beach         “Its Sugar”

20140630-153327-56007499.jpg

{Super adorable sign, no?}

Then we made our way to South Coast Plaza – the mecca of all shopping malls in So Cal.

20140630-153328-56008378.jpg

{I found my future car, just a simple Bentley}

20140630-153329-56009337.jpg

{And came home with the most beautiful blue bag in the world}

Oh I did go into the Zara at South Coast and it was MAD MAD House!!  People and clothes everywhere, clothes on the floor, dressing room line was long and I decided I didn’t need anything that bad! So Sad!

EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!!

Happy Spring!! I want . . .

20140308-232148.jpg

Peanut Butter Yogurt w/ raspberries, blueberries and mini nutter butters from Yogurtland (but they don’t have Hello Kitty cups anymore!) =(

And since I’m really bad at taking pictures of myself in a mirror, here’s an awkward OOTD taken by my desk.

20140320-122542.jpg

Love my camo pants from the Gap with navy blue, very loose and comfy sweater from H&M (last year-buy 1 get 1 free)

20140320-144732.jpg

 

This is my necklace from Forever 21! Kinda cool and edgy but more importantly really inexpensive!

OK. That is all.  Happy First Day of Spring

 

 

Darn you Target! =)

Just when I should start thinking of getting ready for summer weather and clothes, and after all I am going to Vegas next month to celebrate my sister’s birthday, I start eating these . . .

20140318-091717.jpg

 

and I’m not going to lie. I kind of love them! (YES! those are Easter Hershey kisses and Reese’s peanut butter cups and Peeps you see in the background. Please don’t judge, I’m weak)  😉  We also bought the mint chip Chips Ahoy but those are husbands.  I bought them at Target just hours after I had seen a commercial for them. I wasn’t really interested when i saw the commercial but when I saw them in person they called out to me. And they were 2 for $4 so so since husband was getting the mint chip ones it was only fair that I got some too! HAHA

I also got this basket on clearance ($10)  so that I could stash my flats in but actually it would make a cute beach bag too!

20140318-091730.jpg

You know what they say about Target you can’t just go in for one thing! And while I was paying for everything I realized I forgot to buy one of the things I went there for!! OY!

Happiness is . .

Have a great weekend!! xoxo

Just forkin’ around

We love to EAT and we love to try new restaurants or places that we have seen on TV like on Food Network’s Diners Drive-ins and Dives. We also like to try restaurants belonging to chefs that we see on Top Chef or Chopped, etc. (Geez I guess we watch too much television!).
