{weekend notes}

I hope you all had a wonderfully relaxing Labor Day weekend.  I did not…Ha!  But, guess what?  We are all moved and settled.  Just a few more cabinets to line.  Garage to organize.  Things to hang on the walls.  It was a very productive weekend.  With a little bit of fun mixed in.  You gotta work hard, and play hard too…right?!?!

Here’s some highlights from the weekend.  And some not so highlights too.

 

The Move //

Thursday was moving day.  Just the start of the shit show.

I thought I was pretty organized and didn’t have tons of shit….until it was time to move.  Holy cow guys, I have a lot of shit!

Dump trip in my near future.

Not to mention, it was like the hottest weekend ever…especially to move.

These guys made the move doable.  The best money spent.

If you’re planning a move anytime soon, I highly recommend you contact Chris Moves and get these guys to do your dirty work.  I booked them based on their price and check out the Yelp reviews.  They are good!!

They even stopped for a photo 🙂

 

This one here, she also made the move doable.

Shelf lining

Carpet cleaning

 

 

She even packed the important stuff!  God, I love her!!

The first night in the house.  I busted out my new wine glasses.  Played Pandora and cleaned/organized till 2:30am.  FML!

But the wine glasses are sooo cute…don’t you think?

Oh, and when you can’t find the corkscrew….you dump out all the kitchen utensils on the floor and search frantically till you find one.

First dinner in the new place.  Steak + Shrimp.  Check out those monster shrimp that came for Nugget.  So bomb.

Berkeley, CA //

We escaped to Berkeley for the day/night.  Only to realize that Berkeley was not the place to go when it’s hot as hell.  No AC anywhere.

Except a couple of random bars that we stumbled on.  So clearly we kept their bar stools warm for a bit.  Like this spot, Pacific Standard Tap Room.

 

Angeline’s Louisiana Kitchen located right in the heart of downtown Berkeley came highly recommended by some locals we met and chatted with.  And let me tell you, it was amazing.  The hush puppies were served with creamy honey butter.  The buttermilk fried chicken, oh man…it was to die for.  I would without a doubt go back to Angeline’s the next time I’m in the area.

I only wish I would have saved room for the biegnets.

ZUT! On Fourth was the prime location for morning people watching + mimosas + avocado toast.

They make their mimosas just how I like them…easy on the oj, heavy on the bubbles.

Do you spy my new sunnies?  I’m obsessed.  I’ve been on the hunt for a matte black pair of shades for months.  I finally found them.  I’ll share details this week.

Look at that avocado toast!

Not to mention the inside is gorgeous too!

 

I walked into a Sur La Table store for the first time.  Oh. My. God.  I walked right back out.  I could have spent the entire day browsing all their culinary goodies.  The shelves were piled high with white serving platters.  I had died and gone to heaven.

Who wants to plan a day trip to Sur La Table with me?

Scarlet //

And the real highlight of the weekend was meeting this angel ♥

My eldest bestie’s (Zeb’s) babe.

Her shades are hands down way better than mine!

Oh and Bill The Thrill!

In the crooked bar in Jack London Square.

 

Right before we got kicked out for having a baby in a bar…HA!

One of my favorite people on the planet.  This chick right here has more dirt on me that anyone.  We’ve been homies since 2nd grade when we moved 3 houses down from each other.  We were inseparable.  So many crazy memories.  When she said she’d be in the area, I couldn’t wait to meet up with her and meet her sweet new baby.

Scarlet is even cuter in person.  I can’t get over what a sweet girl she it.  And seeing Sarah as a mama was pretty damn cool too.  Their bond is so special to watch.

Does is get any better?

Who knew Jack London Square was so beautiful?  Not me.  Plank is bad ass.  This place has it all.  Bowling.  Bocce.  Arcade.  Billiards.  Beer Garden.  Great food.  Super family friendly.  We parked it right here!

Thanks for the fun afternoon Sarah, Bill + Scarlet ♥

Back in the Saddle //

Another highlight…..

Watching these girls ♥

We finally found a horse + trainer for them to continue practicing.

They are all signed up for weekly lessons at Woodland Stallion Station and they couldn’t be happier.

Swimming with the cousins!

 

Bay requested burgers for dinner.  “Not those healthy turkey ones either”  Ha.  I have to admit, they were damn good!

Baskin Robbin delivery from our new neighbors ♥

 

Have a great short week my friends!
