What a great weekend! I hung out with my friend Ari, spent time with my family, shopped, and ate good food. I can't complain.
I have posted about my favorite food blog, Addicted to Veggies, a few times now because I am obsessed with Sarahfae's cooking. A while back she made this amazing recipe for me and I finally got to make it myself and it did not disappoint! The Lime in the Coconut Cream Pies were sooo good and I can't stop thinking about them.
here, so it will get used one way or another :)
Brandon , is raising money for Alzheimer's research through art. He is making custom pieces starting at $30. I asked him to make a Cary Grant painting for me and he sent me the photo above within a few hours. I love it and can't wait to hang it up! Thank you Brandon! Please contact him on Facebook if you would like to have something made.
On Sunday Luke and I drove with my mom and grandma to Santa Barbara. I gave her the quilt and she liked it! I was nervous because she was a very talented seamstress and I am sure my amateur mistakes are painfully obvious, but she seemed very grateful and appreciative. I also got to see my aunt and uncle, who I haven't seen in over a year.
Afterwards we went to downtown Santa Barbara, got lunch at a Hawaiian restaurant, and shopped. I didn't buy much, but Luke found lots of things for himself at American Apparel. It's hard for me to shop because I always think to myself, "I could make that or learn how to make it." Plus clothing can be so expensive that it is hard to justify such a pricey purchase for something I probably won't wear too often.
