I’ve been slacking a little the last two weeks.. I’m a little off my blogging game. Since it’s Friday, I thought I’d share some photos from this last week with you.
On Tuesday, I got myself some iced tea from Starbucks and took a drive through one of the canyons here close to home. There’s a few that kind of wind and loop together, and I absolutely loving cruising through them. If you go at the right time, there’s hardly anyone else out there. It’s so quiet and peaceful, even with my music turned up and the windows all down. I drive these canyons to unwind or think, or even just for a change of scenery. It’s one of my absolute favorite things to do.
Wednesday night I went to an Angels game with a few of my friends. These are friends I’ve met in the Jeep community, and these three in particular are a bit younger than I am. I’m 27, and they’re all under the age of 22. Sometimes I feel old being around them, but most of the time, I feel like I’m 22 again. It’s interesting to be around people who are in different stages of life than you are. Even though I felt old at times, (and sober – I was the only one choosing to not drink) I always have a great time with those kids.
Thursday night, my family & I went to the brand new Karl Strauss Brew Pub in Anaheim to celebrate my brother being the SOLE brewer there. They don’t open to the public until Monday, August 22nd, but we were amongst a handful of people who received a special invite. My brother has been in the brewing industry for a little while now, and was just given the opportunity at Karl Strauss to essentially have his own brewery. He’ll be the only one brewing there, AND everything brewed on site will be his own recipes. As his big sister, I am BEYOND proud of him. Words can’t even begin to describe the feeling. The food is amazing, and all the other beer is good as well, so if you’re in the Anaheim area, GO CHECK THEM OUT.
So here’s kind of a funny story… I found these cactus PJ pants (above) at Target, weeks ago. I’m kind of cheap, and couldn’t justify spending almost $17 on a pair of pajama pants. (Especially since I wear shorts most of the time. It’s hot in SoCal!) I knew there was a good chance of them eventually going on clearance, so I waited it out. Yesterday, (Thursday) I FINALLY saw them on clearance! I quickly grabbed a pair, finished my shopping, and headed home. When I got home and put them on (because I had to) I realized they were a bit tight. Usually I get pajamas in a bigger size so they’re comfy, but apparently in my excitement, I forgot. So I took them back to Target, returned them, and went to find a bigger size. I was then very disappointed to see that they didn’t have a bigger size. So what did I do? Went to another Target. They didn’t have my size either. Neither did the next Target I went to. That’s right.. Three Target stores, no cactus pants. I could have cried. I woke up this morning feeling a little antsy and almost immediately decided I would go hit up another three Target stores. I got some coffee and have my route all planned out. I was SO EXCITED when I found them at the first Target I stopped at and didn’t have to drive all over SoCal! I LOVE THEM SO MUCH. They’re just too freaking cute. Now I’m starting to think maybe I should make the rounds again, buy them all on clearance, and get them up on Amazon. Seriously people. How freaking cute are they!?
That’s it for this week, folks. I’ll try and be a better blogger next week, I promise!
