Did you have a good weekend friends?  Mine sure was relaxing.  Marv and I ran some necessary errands, did a little (OK a lot) of thrifting, I washed all the baby clothes we have so far, made some tweaks to our baby registry, ate a whole lot of watermelon, and did some more unpacking~!  Oh not to mention we ate pretty dang well… think fried chicken and lasagna and cinnamon rolls!  :)

For today’s post, I’m linking up to a {little} dash of ash’s camera phone party again!  Here’s a Retro Camera (Android) pictures I took in California last week!  Gee does it make me miss all the good food we had there!

1 unhealthy (but oh-so-good) meal, 1 healthy meal

showing my baby bump the ocean and sand for the first time!

playing with my nephew and so happy about my niece being born on this trip!

$1 can get you a bubble tea or a chance to win a louis vuitton bag

every time i go to california i MUST eat soup dumplings and shaved ice… mm mmm good!!

P.S. Have you entered the Yellow Plum Blossoms GIVEAWAY?  You have one more day!

    in-and-out burger, bubble tea and dumplings, yes, please and thank you. when i used to live back home in L.A., my high school was next to an in-and-out burger and since i was an overachiever back then and have mostly taken my classes, i got to leave early during my junior and senior year by 1:30pm and in-and-out was the late lunch destination with my friends!

    I live in California and have never tried dumplings or shaved ice here! In fact, I had never heard of shaved ice before.

    Hope you have a great week!
