The Pumpkin Patch

We went to the Pumpkin patch over the weekend! It was such a blast to take Jed, and to be able to see him in a new environment. Living in LA we don't get a lot of farms, any really. So we made about an hour drive up to Forneris Farms in Mission Hills with some friends.

                                                     ^^They had a really fun corn maze!^^
We even overheard a few people who were lost. It can be very scary when you separate from your group.

They had pony rides, a petting zoo, and games for kids. They also have a train that tours the entire farm, but we forgot to try that.

The farmers market was especially fun, well for mom, anyways. We got a few goodies that we shared with our family back home. They have everything from sunflowers (my favorite), to honey, and gigantic pumpkins.

It was a pretty successful day, overall. We had a blast with everyone, and we even entered a contest (fingers crossed). Although, I'm not sure what we would do with a 100lb pumpkin. It was a family trip for the books. Which we seem to be doing a lot lately, both because we're leaving, and because dad ships off next month. Gotta fit in all of our fall activities in two weeks!

New Look!

The blog got a new look! As you can see, I completely redid the blog. Finally!! I got a new layout done  by Kay Brighton. I really like how everything looks. So what's new? The tabs on top ^^^^

We have some new categories, like thrifting, family, California. We also have a shop tab, which looks like this...
It's just a page with a few things that I'm currently using or wanting. I will update it periodically, so you can always check back!

We have social buttons to connect on different platforms (happy dance). Twitter is still tough for me, but Instagram and Pinterest are frequently visits :)

And last I'm bringing buttons back! I currently have my friends Sonia's new blog. She recently started a fashion/lifestyle blog, and I highly recommend checking it out.

Happy Friday!

The case of the missing chonies

^^Found this picture fitting for the story^^

So this morning, I may or may not have lost my chonies at the gym. Yes, you heard that right! I lost my underwear somewhere at the gym. Since my husband is going to tell everyone he knows, I thought I would get ahead of the story. This is by far the most humiliating thing that has happened to me. Needless to say, I'm never showing my face at that gym again. Good thing my membership is for multiple clubs. How did this happen? Good question!

This morning I decided to go swimming at the gym. So swimming I went, took a shower, grabbed my clothes, and got dressed. I had the bright idea of just bunching my clothes in my towel and carrying it to the car. Only to realize when I got home that my underwear were gone! Yes! Somewhere in-between the walk from the locker room to the car, I dropped my underwear. It could very well have been in the middle of the gym as I was walking out. In THE MIDDLE OF THE GYM. As in multiple people could have seen me drop them. Fingers crossed that it was outside where there was no witnesses. So you can see why I can never show my face there again.

So in case you were having a bad day, at least you didn't loose your underwear :)

Prom, or something like it...

Saturday night we had a "prom" night, put on by one of our friends. It was as fun as any prom can be without a professional DJ and catered food. I mostly just enjoy any excuse to wear a fancy dress and heels. So we took lots of pictures, sang kareoke, and just enjoyed our time with friends.

                                                             We even got to take Jed :)

^^^The newlyweds! First time at prom^^^

^Love simple decorations, specially those wine glasses.^ 

It was a lot of fun to have a night out with friends, and a baby friendly party. Good to know that although we're parents, we can still go out with friends! Next time there will be music, because how else can you have a dance off?

A trip to LA

We went to LA a few weeks ago with a couple of friends. We got on the metro and visited places that I hadn't seen in a while. Now that we're leaving I want to visit all the tourist places with Jed. We only went for a few hours, but it was a fun little trip. We were able to visit Little Tokyo, China Town, and Olvera Street.

                                                ^^Little Tokyo had the cutest bakeries^^

Mexican candy, hmmmm!

Such bright colors in everything they had! Loved the dresses they had too, but I don't have a little girl to buy them for.
They had aztec dancing on Olvera Street. It was pretty fun to watch. Jed liked it so much, he wanted to join.

China town was not nearly as fun! I was a little disappointed. I would even skip it all together next time. Unless you want to buy $5 turtles.
Overall, it was a really fun trip. If you buy a metro pass ($6). You can ride all the lines, all day. You can even get discounts on some restaurants. I would suggest going to Pershing Square and having ice cream at Peddler's creamery. You get a buy one, get one with your metro card. I would also suggest doing Downtown Pasedena for some shopping. You can always look on here to see what LA is offering for the weekend. Sometimes they have concerts, crawfest, and food tasting tours!
