This month Miss Margo hosted girls brunch and made it Tea Party themed! It was pretty wonderful. Full of girls chattin’, crumpets, tiny sandwiches, and of course… TEA.
This is lovely.
We are fun.
Afterwards, some of us ladies decided to really treat ourselves to some much deserved manicures and pedicures.

Do you have a girly tradition? We would love to hear about it!
Yay it’s finally feeling like spring! No more chilly mornings, no more blasted space heaters just to fall asleep. SPRING!
But as many of you know, with drastic weather change comes health change. Some sort of chest cold/flu-like thing has been going around. YUCK! So Ketry and I decided to whip up a little Feel Better Fast food and drink, hot toddy’s (toddies?!) and banana choc. chip. pancakes, because who doesn’t like pancakes?!
***These things will not cure what ever you are fighting…they simply make you feel happy***
So cozy up on the couch, grab your favorite blanket, and take the thermometer outta your mouth, without further ado, Toasted Oven.

Top of dee mornin’ to ya!
Yea, I too agree that it is a bit silly to be sounding “Irish” as a mexican, but I love holidays and find myself constantly excited for them. Regardless if they have ANYTHING to do with me.
With that being said, this week’s Toasted Oven is all about St. Patrick’s Day. But first, do you actually know who or what St. Patrick Day is? Well.. a quick little wikipedia history lesson for you begins in 3,2,1…Saint Patrick (c. AD 387–461), the most commonly recognised of the patron saints of Ireland, and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland.
Woah! How interesting! That’s crazy that sooooo many people celebrate this guy! People are awesome!!
So grab a green beer, some corn beef and hash, and watch as Ketry and I celebrate St. Patrick.
xo & 4-leaf clovers,
Did I end up stabbing her?
Looking to take a long drive and get out of the city for a little bit and smell some fresh air?
Looking to spend some QT with your signifiant other?
Need to brush up on your nature photog skills?
Want to find some SNOW in the MOUNTAINS?!?!?!
Surprisingly, these things aren’t as far away as you may think they are. Just pack yourself a lunch, hop in the car, crank some tunes and go for a drive up the 2.
Last weekend, Andy and I were in desperate need of some quality time together so we did all of the above things and drove up the 2 for a long time. We lost cell reception and were left with nothing but gorgeous mountains and our echos. As we continued driving up through the mountains and the temperature dropped 20 degrees we found a foot of snow over everything and a perfect backdrop for a picnic.
This link shows a map of the route and gives a tiny bit more information.
Writing doesn’t seem to do it justice so here are a few pictures (which also don’t do much justice for the real thing).
Flip Flops in Snow (the title of my memoir about living in SoCal? Maybe…)
Is it a bird??
Mountains so pretty you don’t even need to Instagram them!
You can even come back with souvenirs the size of your baby doll! Wha?
My first Disney experience was not the best. I had to be around 3 or 4 years old when my parents first took me to Disneyworld in Florida. I was terrified of EVERYTHING. Haunted Mansion? Nightmares. Snow White? Holy moly. Space Mountain? It’s a roller coaster in the dark? HECK NO, I’M NOT RIDING THAT. Captain Nemo? IS THAT AN OCTOPUS EYE LOOKING AT ME?! WE ARE GOING TO DIE IN THIS WATER TANK!!!!
Not to mention half the rides we rode didn’t really work.
Splash Mountain broke down and we had to be escorted off of it. On Dumbo, my elephant wouldn’t go up! Guess my feather was a failure… Pirates of the Caribbean broke down and this is where I lost my cool and started freaking out. My mother said “Brittany, the pirates aren’t going to eat you!” Then a few years later this classic line was delivered by Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic Park. I’m still sure that the screenwriter was on the boat with my family that day and stole that line from my mother…
My first Disney experience. I didn't want to leave Chip or Dale. And why yes, I DO have a sweet mullet
My boyfriend and I ventured out to Disney yesterday. His roommate is an avid Disney fan and told him to go in March on a Tuesday or Wednesday to avoid crowds. Boy, did we! The longest we waited in a line was probably 30 minutes and that was for Peter Pan. We pretty much got to do every ride we wanted, too! It was so fun! I have to say, I probably appreciate it a little more since I’m a huge child at heart. But again, some of the rides are spooky! No wonder I was so scared as a kid…
By the way, there were so many chubby cheek cuties there yesterday! I wanted to pinch all their faces. Have I turned into a Grandmother?
Bry and I are the two eyeballs towards the back...
I LOVED Nemo because I love anything that has to do with the ocean. Even though this was fake ocean.
A boy and the "sea"
Dumbo Flying Elephants! And our elephant worked this time!
Tea Pots go FAST
It IS a small world after all!
Disney is quite magical. It transports you to a place where you don’t worry or care about anything. Go and forget what’s going on in your life. That’s what a fairy tale is all about, right?
Unless you have been living under a rock the past week, I’m sure you know all about the magical Sprinkles Cupcakes ATM which is open 24/7. I just found this video online and had to share since it’s the first time I’ve actually seen the ATM in action.
NOW I WANT A CUPCAKE WITH A SHAMROCK ON IT.
This seems like pure perfection. Now if only there was one in the Valley… Sprinkles, can we get on that?
This morning I woke up from a dream about New York City. I can’t remember exactly what the dream was about, but I was there.
A few summers ago, Mel and I traveled to NYC to visit one of our AWESOME friends. We spent a few days there which consisted of: hardly any sleep, eating delicious food, walking all over the city, visiting a film set, meeting Rob Pattinson, staying at bars that were open almost 24 hours, parks, cab rides, Mel using her wit and sassyness to get us into restaurants, and oh yeah, missing our flight home.
It was one of the BEST trips of my life and I’m sad that the memories from it are starting to fade… Mel, shall we plan a trip back for this summer? ADVENTURE TIME.
Mel and I missed our flight back to LA shortly after this...
Check out my old Blackberry! And Mel's legs...
LA, you’re ok too. I hope I’m not hurting your feelings. But yeah, I need to get out of you for a couple days… And stand on the roof of a building and see another NYC sunrise…
