out and about

This weekend came and went so quickly and we were everywhere... 

On Saturday afternoon, we went to Knott's Berry Farm because it was sort of free to get in, as you just had to bring a brand new packaged toy worth at least $10, so we brought 2 and in we went with the girls (This special is on next weekend too if anyone is interested). 

This was the girls first time in an amusement park and Ben's first time at Knott's. We rode 2 rides together, but mostly just walked around. We came to the conclusion that while we had fun, Knott's definitely lacks the "magic" that Disneyland has. Though, we will have to wait to go to Disneyland because it is just too darn expensive to get in.
On Sunday, after an already full day at church, we went to Unique in Los Angeles. It was like going on etsy, but in real life, and they had some other funky non-etsy designers. Karen (Misha Lulu) was there and it is always a treat to see her, her funkiness, and her family.

The only problem here was that the girls were already so tired and napless that they were cranky. The only thing that pacified them was Brave pushing the stroller and True wanting to walk around with one shoe...

There was a bag there (some clarification for those who might need it: it was much, much cheaper at the show than stated on the website) that I wanted from Rebe, but with the girls cranky (fighting and crying), it was really hard to do any shopping. I guess the bag could go on my Christmas wish list. Ben keeps asking what I want, so here is a little help for him, but I still really want a polaroid camera and lots of film (that may be #1)...

Other than that, those things aren't needs, just likes and wants, so I think we are going to be a bit more practical with our gift giving, so who knows what I am gonna get or get him for that matter. I think I am done with others, though I do have a few things to make (and bake)... oh i can't wait for some Christmas baking.

Eek! Christmas is almost here... time goes so fast. 

What's on your Christmas wish list? 


  1. Your photos are always so beautiful. Even of such mundane moments as shopping. I hope you get your Polaroid camera!

  2. Our family was at Knott's on Saturday too! I think there was just way too many people there that day. We try to do the Toys for Tots thing every year, but this season's crowd was so crazy. Thank God it didn't end up raining though!

  3. My parents got Ele and I Disney passes for our anniversary so we could have cheap get away dates whenever we felt like it. If you ever feel like doin' the Disney the girls are free until three!

  4. did you know you can go to Disneyland for free on your birthday in 2009?

  5. gosh, that place looks amazing.

    All i really want this christmas is a wooden spoon made by my love. but i love those house slippers too!

  6. I wish I were there. And that bag by rebe is greatness.

  7. fun day! even with cranky ones. I am loving your blog and so happy I found my way here via cafe mom via bling.

  8. wow, a $235 bag? seriously? that's craziness.

    you should watch the movie "what would jesus buy?"

  9. anonymous- seriously, why do you have to hide if you are gonna judge?

    1. the bag wasn't that expensive at the show (it was $150 off) 2. there is a reason it wasn't bought 3. it is on christmas WISH list, doesn't mean i am gonna get it... just a wish!

    my husband is also pretty smart, if he doesn't think it is necessary and considers it wasteful, he wouldn't buy it for me.

  10. I loved Knott's berry farm growing up! My dad has a fav memory of my family leaving the park all tired & then there is me doing cartwheels! oh how I wish I still had that would do me good around the house!
    ...& love that purse. We can wish for anything our heart desires! Plus purses are worth their weight in gold for us mommies! Hope Santa is good to u =)
