I’m working on some exciting projects right now that I can’t wait to share with you, but while i’m finishing on those I just wanted to post a quick update about my weekend, because it was fun and I remembered to photograph most of it – on my iPhone.
I’d like to start by saying how ironic it is that as someone who is painfully addicted to mexican food and tequila, I had neither of the two on Cinco de Mayo. But let’s be serious – I don’t need a fake holiday to have an excuse to indulge in those things, and i’m sure I will end up making up for it sometime in the near future.
I did have a pretty busy and exciting day, nonetheless. From juicing for the whole family for breakfast, to tiny spanish sandwiches and sangria, to amazing antiquing, the dog park, and an evening of editing videos.
Time for a public service announcement: If you ever stumble upon a 100 montaditos and you love tiny, delicious, spanish sandwiches and cold, imported beer or sangria, please stop there. Albert won’t stop talking about it, and I can completely back his new obsession. They have about 100 sandwich combinations to choose from, so, unless you’re an incredibly decisive person, make your life easier and order a sampler, like we did.
After lunch we did some light thrifting. The picture above is from my favorite section of my favorite shop, Paris Market on the second floor of Adjectives Market in Altamonte Springs. If you’re ever in the North central florida area, please stop by here as well. This the classiest, snazziest, kitschiest, antique/thrift type shop i’ve ever been in and all their different dealers sell incredible and unique items.
After antiquing for a while and being sad because I can’t buy all the things, we stopped by Lowe’s to look at succulents and cacti for a few projects I have planned. Then we picked up our crazy dogs and headed to the park.
our dogs are almost too well behaved at the dog park. after playing for about 10 minutes, they come find us and then barely leave our side.
A shot from the tired drive home. a) i love how super washed out I look in the sunlight except for my glasses b) starbuck in the background with her tongue dangling out of her mouth. lol.
That about wraps up the most active part of the day. I did find some amazing treasures while gallivanting around town. The first is a new, blue yoga mat. Not the most exciting thing, but my dogs destroyed my old one by taking naps on it constantly, and this new one was only $10 at tj maxx. While we were there I also found an adorable little owl mug and these shiny, aqua steve madden sandals that I just fell instantly in love with. The antique deer planter was the last magical find of the day, at Adjectives Market. It was half off. Its a deer. It is now mine. All is well.
Oh – and i can’t forget that we finished the day off at home with some video editing and my mom’s empanadas for dinner. if you didn’t know, my mom’s empanadas are the best- and now you know. thanks, mom!
