flea markets are one of my favorite things in the whole world. if i could, i would take a thrift/flea market road trip and travel the country stopping through markets and swap meets and thrift stores 😉 here are some images from a trip to the rose bowl flea market.
my finds. a few things from the dollar pile. some pretty handkerchiefs that i will tie together for a simple flag banner for wedding decor. old keys. a special jewelry box. and my favorite green suitcase.
it was so fabulous! she is beautiful, hilarious, thoughtful, sweet, amazing, and so real. and i got to meet brave + true, who are the most adorable girls ever. and she has another girl on the way!!
we discussed lots over pancakes and waffles and laughed as true dipped her pancakes into ketchup. man, kids are so awesome. i’m gonna go out on a limb and say that probably doesn’t taste that good, but true seemed to really enjoy it 😉 brave was so precious and wanted to do everything her big sister was doing.
anyway, ruby made me some delicious red velvet cupcakes. i seriously have a thing for cupcakes. i barely got a picture cause i wanted to eat them all. as you can see, 2 cupcakes didn’t make it in the picture 😉 but here you go. isn’t she amazing?
thank you for coming out and letting me spend time with you and your girls rubyellen!
so i haven’t done a weekend update in a while, and i thought my last weekend was definitely blog-worthy. whew, this is a long post but i hope you enjoy 😉
so friday night was the bf’s birthday: he had to work all day but we went to disneyland afterward. since we have passes, he got a free $60 gift card – sweet! we took the train to new orleans square, got a funnel cake, and left. we’re such an old couple, he just wanted to get home and relax 😉 plus when you have a pass, you can go whenever you want!
i am amazed at how close the dance community is: everyone seems so supportive and amazing. and dancing in itself is such a neat expression of creativity. steppie had so many dance friends stop by and support her when we did the uc irvine show.. one of steppie’s friend’s even knew my little brother’s girlfriend.
anyway, nick’s favorite dance was by Poreotics, their performance was super creative and entertaining my favorite dance was by common ground, it seriously made me teary! if you have a chance, you have to watch it and tell me what you think! the quality on youtube is good. lots of cheering and madness, haha.
then they have the bates hotel stage from psycho. and they have a real person pretending to be norman bates! haha. he came out from the room with a body and put it in the trunk of the car. could you imagine if that were your job? all you have to do all day is walk around and pretend to be really creepy. he was legit.
the 2nd pic is of lindsey and jon! it was their anniversary but they still came out all the way from san diego! after the lunch, jon started his own blog, which i thought was pretty cool since some of the boys were bashing blogs 😉
then there is bethany, who is enjoying some desert that dionne got for us!
and the last pic is nicholas, going over his paper. we played this super fun game that eric taught us. eric was so cool, he is a structural enginner by day and he is an extra in tv shows! he mentioned he was in the season finale of desperate so i just had to watch. and he sure was, right behind eva longoria in the church scene at the end. so cool, haha.
and then there i am with the beautiful dionne. she is quite amazing for putting this whole thing together: from all the food to the gift bags for everyone, and not only that, but she was so incredibly sweet! and she is just like me – she burns toast! the last image is her sad face with the completely burnt garlic bread in the trash, haha. thank you for letting me be a part of the lunch dionne!
have you ever met bloggers in real life? there is a whole list of blogger’s i’d love to meet for reals. i feel super fortunate in all the connections and friends i’ve made through this little blog.
well that is it for my weekend update. that was a long one 😉
