What a glorious weekend. So sad that it has ended. I've got a biddie in town visiting me and we decided to road trip it down to San Diego (or San Diaaahhhgo as we prefer to call it). Then we did lots of fun stuff on Sunday too including some very touristy things that I have been wanting to do but haven't had the time. When I moved out here I had about 3 days of down time before I had to start working, so whenever friends come out to visit I am usually always down for a little tourist action.
We stopped at La Jolla (we kept calling it La Holla, as in pass me some more Challah bread) on the way down to SD:
Some crazy peeps were swimming with the seals and walruses
(walri? those little black dots soaking up the marine layer to the left).
Anyways, a good portion of Sunday was spent at the Santa Monica Airport Flea Market. And this is where it really gets good:
What's that you say? A mid-century dresser? How much was it? Only a
hundie? Are you for real? YES I AM. I have been ogling dressers like
this for QUITE some time; lusting after the beautiful wood color,
timeless design, clean modern lines...and oh yeah. This one's MINE!
Pretty incredible if you ask me. I was on a flea market high for the
rest of the day--there's nothing quite like crossing something big off
your wish list!
Here are some other fun things I spotted at the flea:
That's all for pictures--once I found my dresser I had eyes for it only. Now to get rid of my old dresser...
So we also had some tourist time this weekend and hiked in Griffith Park up to the Observatory:
we also caught the Hollywood sign. MAJOR tourist moment, even though I
am not a tourist and I live here. Regardless, it was pretty exciting
to see the Hollywood sign in all its glory.
How was your weekend?
