Weekend Snaps

Another great weekend in the books.  The weather took a crazy turn and was absolutely lovely.  Warm.  Sunny.  Perfect

I decided to keep it simple Friday night.  Netfix and Mexican.  Ordered in from Casa Linda.  I forget it’s around, which is unfortunate because it’s bomb food.  I settled on a ship burrito, no regrets.  However, next time I will def go back to the shrimp tacos.  If you’re in the mood for a drama, we enjoyed Jamesy Boy.  An intense and kind of sad true story following a troubled teen.

After taking Jack on a walk around Santa Monica, my  man and me enjoyed brunch at one of my favorite local spots.

After lots of cleaning and organizing Saturday afternoon, I met up with a buddy for some sunset wine followed by pizza, pizza, pizza!

Hope you had a great weekend.  I had to include this baby Jack pic.  He was so exhausted from watching me clean all afternoon :-)
