I am trying to be better at blogging lately. I feel like I am pretty good at documenting because I am always taking pictures, but I love combining photos with my thoughts so I can have them all in one place. This blog is like a journal for me. I love going back and looking at old posts and remembering trips we took or funny memories I forgot about!
My mom flew in today from AZ for a quick visit. We had a really fun day! We hung out at our apartment for a little while, then took her to brunch for her birthday (it was a few days ago). We went to one of my favorite places-The Butcher's Daughter. I really wanted her to try the french toast with raspberry butter but we got there about noon and they stop serving breakfast at 11:30!! So sad! But everything was still delicious. It is the cutest atmosphere-and the interior is basically what I want my house to look like.
We saw a few celebrities while we were eating/shopping today. It is always so crazy to me! Being from Arizona where that basically never happens, it always shocks me when I see someone I watch on TV just out and about. But luckily it is starting to feel more normal. I don't feel like a fan girl like I used to; I kind of just acknowledge it and move on. haha
After brunch we went to Blue Star. The most amazing donut place! We first found this place in Portland and I fell in love with it. I have a majorrrr sweet tooth so I am always on the hunt for good dessert place. If you are a donut lover you have got to try it!
We walked around Abbot Kinney for awhile and went to a few really cute stores. One of my favorites is Burro! They have the most darling little knick knacks, books and jewelry and some awesome Christmas decor right now too.
I only took a few iPhone photos of our day, but here they are! Hope everyone started their weeks off right! Monday's don't have to be boring. ;)
