BLT Headaches

On 4th of July my kind brother-in-law offered me a BLT sandwich.  I use to love BLT sandwiches but stayed away from them because of the greasy bacon.  Well, fast forward a decade, I bit into the BLT sandwich that was prepared for me, and oh my did it bring back memories!  I loved it, not just because of the scrumptious bacon but because I felt like I was reunited with an old friend.  Fast forward a week...guess what's still on my mind?!  That BLT!!!  So, I go to Trader Joe's and buy me some hickory bacon, rush home, and prepare me a scrumptious BLT (altered to a little more of my liking).  Since I had some left over bacon, I made another the following day, AND I also got a huge headache.  I think I got BLT headaches!  SO, I must leave my old friend behind again, it was great while it lasted.

this whole week.  Why does my lovely husband have to have so many books!  He's a book worm :)  My efforts will be trying to pack up, and settle into our new place.  We'll see how that goes.

City Search...

I found these cute wiggly guys in a parking lot, the lot was closed so had to capture images at a distance.  Not sure which business this lot belongs to.  These little guys caught my eye, plus I think they're suppose to be dancing, so...wiggly guys dancing + top hats = eye catchers!

Found on Prospect and Vermont

Smile {This Moment}

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo [or several]- no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. 

Happy Friday!

Why does a nanny, chef, ref, housemaid, teacher, chauffeur, all have "jobs," BUT a stay at home mom/house wife is considered by society as NOT having a "job"?

Just a thought...

My awesome husband surprised me with Kings Of Leon concert tickets.  I did mess it up and accidently found out...opps!  I felt bad.  Last monday we found babysitters (bless my mother, mother-in-law, TI, and Faye's heart) and headed over to the Hollywood Bowl for some great music.  I'm thankful for my husband because he toilerates my taste of music, we really like two totally different types of music, but that's ok because he loves me and enjoys it because I do.  I love him so!  We had a great time.

We had to get up and dance when our favorite songs were performed.  PJ laughed at how "white people" dance (please don't feel offended :).  He perceived it as dancing with "no bones," haha that's true!
I'm thankful for my husband who loves me and strives to show me more of Christ.

City Search...

I've decided to document some of Los Angeles' street art, or anything that catches my eye, around my city that is random, beautiful, inspiring, weird, and the list goes on.  I finally had the camera in toe to be able to get this going.  Hope you are just as interested in what is around LA.  Here we go!

Found in an alley off of Sunset and Hillhurst.

Cupcake Tasting...

Still venturing into the unknown land of cupcakes.  Finally tried Dots Cupcakes, and I must say-- disappointed.  I didn't even like the look of them, they had cheesy decorations, and cake not moist enough.  

Verdict- 6 out of 10

Thrifty Finds-Suitcase

Found this adorable suitcase in Seattle.  Fell in love with its stature.  It's a mini suitcase which fits perfectly in the kids room.  First thing the kids did upon seeing it---packing it up to venture into their own minds of imagination.  

Even PJ uses it at times for is books.

My niece would always sing the peanut butter song, and I can't remember where she got it from.  For lunch time I upgraded my PB&J sandwich.

-Trader Joe's nutty peanut butter
-Trader Joe's blueberry jelly
-Sliced bananas

With some cold milk.  A yummy sandwich with some more crunch...Just what i like :)
