This last week as been almost amazing. Spence and I both had a break from school and work...you know what that means?! Quality time, adventure time and sleeping in! That is exactly what we did.
|Wednesday morning we checked out this little place called Pandor in the West Cliff Plaza. Spence had recently gone there for lunch and he thought I would love it. Well, he was right..anything bread and I am in! ha! We snacked on some delicious breakfast dishes (I had The Newporter - it was the bee's knees!) and coffee while sitting outside and enjoyed the chilly (yes, it is cold here) cloud cover that was over Newps.|
|There were 5 or 6 pies at dinner. I indulged in a slice of pumpkin. Okay...and a sliver or pecan too only because Spence didn't jive with the idea of sharing :)|
|I really wanted Indian headdresses, but, they were hard to find and when I did find them they were far too expensive. Next year I will plan further ahead and buy them at a Halloween store...|
|Thanksgiving time was followed by bike movies, beers and friends. Totally radical.|

|Our new weekly meal calendar which I am SO excited about|
So Saturday was a super duper adventurous day in our house hold. After Spence going to Cross Fit, my 8 mile run. We went out to breakfast at Rooster Cafe, which might just been my new favorite breakfast join in Costa Mesa: Inexpensive. Yummy. Good Coffee. Large plates. Outside seating. Easy parking and it is near The Camp. We came home, Spence didn't want to study and I had NO clue what on earth I was going to do - maybe the beach? Then...it came to me: we will paint stripes on the wall! And so, with a little help from my darling boyfriend (thank goodness he is good at math and can take the extra time to measure every millimeter). Can I just tell you how AWESOME our little decorating project made this 1970's apartment look?! FRIGGIN OUT OF THIS WORLD!
|He is so HELPFUL!|
|I was in charge of taping the small part...because Spence's hands couldn't fit there? Idk...|
|Oh, and I got to hold the tape to make sure Spence was making a straight line...a VERY important job. Ohh do you like my new OPI nail color - My Very First Knockwurst- clearly part of the German collection that I treated myself to on Friday.|
|The finished product. Now I want to do a little more painting....|
Now I have to gear up for a month of rallying between work and travel I have my hands full and I am TOTALLY looking forward to it!
