from the weekend: beach days & movie nights

venice beach // smitten studioWe took it down an extra notch this weekend and lazed around the house all day Saturday. I think I hardly moved! Sunday we did some vintage furniture shopping at Shopclass & Sunbeam Vintage but came up empty handed. Wah Wahh. But a brunch at Sqirl made it worth the trek to that side of town (the “crunchy rice salad with the works” has been my one and only pregnancy craving thus far. IT IS SO GOOD). We ended the afternoon with some beach time, back in our neck of the woods, and capped the weekend with movie night (Kelly & Cal) on the sofa. Have you guys seen any other good movies lately?

Happy Monday. x

from the weekend: beach days & shark week nights

santa monica palms // smitten studioHappy Monday, I hope your week is off to a good start. I’m slowly coming around from a relaxing weekend filled with beach time, a sunday hike, the supermoon, and the kick off to shark week! Rupe says it is mandatory viewing and I was hooked at Colossus.

from the weekend: pink sky california

pink sky california // smitten studioThis weekend we tinkered around the house some more, had a date night at our local sushi place, and finished it off with our favorite hike around Will Rogers State Park. It was cloudy most of the time but that made for a pretty beautiful rosy sky Sunday evening. Who needs silver linings when you can have pink!? ;)

from the weekend: cabin time

lake-michigan-cabinWe made it over to the cabin this weekend and had my sister and her family (2 kids and husband), and my parents over for a day at the lake, BBQ and all. My sister lives in Wyoming so it was a real treat to have her and my adorable niece and nephew there. Living far from family isn’t always the easiest but it definitely makes it extra sweet when you can gather a few together. Hope you had a great weekend.

from the weekend: michigan loving

michigan apple orchard // sarah sherman samuelI had a hard time leaving Michigan this time around, Spring there is just SO beautiful. I forgot how much I missed all that green and the open spaces (you don’t get much of either living in LA). California is a totally different kind of beauty so it was nice getting a hit of the Spring that I grew up with. We lazed around the apple orchards, drove through the countryside, climbed and jumped around sand dunes, and walked the beach daily at the cabin.

from the weekend: beach picnics & home projects

beach picnic // a sunny afternoon // malibuI had a friend visiting this weekend so I took Friday off to head up the coast and enjoy a beach day at one of the prettiest stretches or shoreline LA has to offer, El Matador State Beach. We grabbed a blanket, books, and my basket. Packed it up with lunch and we were set for a full day of sunshine, seal watching, and tide pool searching. It doesn’t get much better than that!

Once back at the homestead, Rupe and I finished the built-ins (a peek here), and the patio benches (a glimpse here) and again our backs are broken this Monday morning. :)

Hope you had a lovely weekend. x
