Easter Weekend with Mom
I’m baaaaaack! I took a mini-hiatus from most things blog related this weekend (except to mention when we got featured!) to enjoy the Easter visit from my mom. We had such a wonderful time (and I miss her already)! There is a giant photo recap below but I thought I would mention a few other things before I bombard you with pictures.
First little note: Obviously I enjoyed my mom being in town but there is also a benefit to you: for the first time in ages, the entire apartment was clean! So I finally managed to take and post new “progress” pictures for the Tour Our Home page! WOO! Check them out. :)
Second little note: Our awesome friend Sam at our corner liquor store scored us a second wine crate for our records! Thankfully it fits perfectly under the TV table and looks great (pictures to come at some point!). Time to alphabetize and split up our vinyl (it’s sad that that makes me so happy)!
Okay- now it is the moment you have all been waiting for: the giant photo recap of our weekend! Be warned… this goes on a while.
Friday: My mom and dad lived in CA for 4 years while my dad went to grad school at UC Irvine. She hasn’t seen it since so we spent the day down in the OC (and even found their old apartment!).Saturday: Santa Monica Pier and Promenade (shopping, eating, people watching) followed by naps and a movie. No pictures… too lazy! :)
Sunday: Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanical Gardens… SO STUNNING! Here is where the excessive number of photos begins. I have to give Walker a shout out since some of the pictures below were taken by him also.
