Love: Holiday Fun

Whew! It’s been a busy few weeks, am I right? Between the holidays and the end of the year we’ve slide right into 2014 with a bang! I love the holidays. My birthday is the 24th, then Christmas and then New Years. Friends come into town for various reasons to visit family and be here for celebrations- it often feels like the end of the year is one long party. In between all that there’s still things to make, work to be done and home improvement projects to work on. Here’s some photos from the last few weeks- I mostly post on Instagram these days but if you don’t follow me there here’s a little bit of what we’ve been up to.

My husband got this most excellent gift for me for my birthday. It’s a snap setter. I was having a lot of trouble setting snaps by hand and this thing does just the most perfect job of it. Sometimes it’s hard for me to spend a lot on something that only does one thing right. But then I think of all the projects that will be better for it and I’m so much happier with the results! Also, gifts are awesome.

Birthday treats from our trip around the Los Angeles region on my birthday. We started out with danish and coffee from Proof Bakery in Atwater and then we headed out to Venice for a great bike ride along the coast. We needed a little snack so we popped into Gjelina and shared a pizza. Tried to keep it on the light side as that night as we were meeting up with friends for a birthday dinner at Water Grill downtown. Two words: Seafood Tower!

Here I am in our newly painted bathroom! It just looks like a white bathroom and that’s exactly what it is, a clean, shiny, beautifully painted bathroom. We ordered new flooring and we’re waiting for that to come so we can install that as well. It’s been fun to update our vintage bathroom without tearing everything out. Just freshening it up a bit.Screen Shot 2016-03-05 at 4.16.00 PM

and then we threw a New Year’s Eve party. With rolls and rolls of sparkly streamers and balloons and a giant horse piñata and a bunch of our awesome friends here in Los Angeles. It was a blast and a great way to ring in the new year. Happy 2014 everyone!!
