I had such a great weekend. Last week I decided that weekends would go back to serving their original purpose- fun and relaxation. I used to spend a lot of weekends running around like crazy, long hours and late nights in the studio and I would wake up Monday morning more exhausted. So now I spend a few extra hours each day during the week so I don't have to take any time out of my weekend.
In the studio on Friday-My envelope shaped business card holder from Victoria of Paper & Type. I think it really brings that je ne sais quois to my shipping table.Typing international shipping labels on my teal smith corona.
Working on stamping a personalized notebook.
Saturday- time for more birthday fun! Tony and a bunch of our closest friends met in the early afternoon at the Redondo Beach Pier for seafood.
The crabs were gigantic and delicious.
The glass pitchers kept the beer refreshingly cold.
I got many compliments on my Homako necklace.
Between two tables, we ate about 60 oysters.
This guy was the star of table #2.
Came with the purchase of a lobster!
After we ate, we ventured down the pier to the 360 degree bar. My friend Mollye, who grew up in Redondo Beach recommended we come here. It was the perfect place for the "after party."
We even got to keep these great souvenir glasses!
The stairs leading up to the 360 degree bar were so pretty.
For Saturday night dinner we went to A frame in Culver City.
Look what it said on the menu- we had no idea! How funny.
Sunday: my sister had a hell of a time getting to me. The streets were closed for the LA triathalon. Finally we met up, got out of the madness and headed to Proof Bakery in Atwater Village. This plum tart was just the right amount of sweet.
Then we spent the majority of the afternoon at the vintage paper fair. I will share more of what I found soon.
Sunday night we went to eat at our friends house in Hollywood and had some pre show cocktails. Then we all walked to the Hollywood Bowl. All in all, a fantastic weekend. Bad news is- I've got a lot of laundry to do!
