Scenes from the Weekend

BBQ nachos at 26 Beach
The happy couple (Nate and Kristal)
Kobe Beef Burger at 26 Beach
Kristal's gorgeous engagement ring (good job, Nate!)
cupcakes to celebrate
My weekend was great and went according to plan with lots of fun times with friends, a dinner to celebrate Nate and Kristal's engagement, walks around Santa Monica Promenade, a visit to Vanilla Bake Shop, and some baking.  I was happy to lose the hour of sleep on Sunday in order to gain the hour of light each evening, which always makes me feel like warm weather is right around the corner.  How was your weekend?

i agree. i gladly take the loss of an hour if it means longer, lighter days (even though, my body clock is still a little screwed up today).

those bbq nachos and cupcakes look amazing!
