It was a Sunday indeed..

Sunday was a beautiful day! Dave and I hung out and decided to go to the Koi Pond store we go in Westminster. We needed more fish food and we just LOVE to go there and look at the ponds and there incredible fish! This is there new little pond they just built. I love the lily pads! They had little gold fish swimming in there. We need some too and guppy's and frogs!!

They have these neat lettuce and hythnith plants. Need some of those too! It's cool because of the guppy's swimming around in there.

Amazing Lily Pads and Purple lotus flowers. We have yellow and pink lotus at home.
I am fancying the purple.

You can see the gold fish swimming all around. It's nice because they won't eat the Lily pads like Koi do.

They have this area that has these HUGE and I mean HUGE Koi fish in these tanks. Pictures just can't do it justice.
These were hundreds of small koi. I liked the very bright silver one's.

Metro Adventures

On Saturday Jackie and decided to get on the Metro Rail just randomly and see what kind of neat places it would take us. Tirso Jr and Nerissa couldn't come since they had other plans. Since Jackie lives in Montebello, we drove to the closest 'park and ride station' which was Gold Line Atlantic Station. I parked my car and we bought our tickets and hopped on the train.
Our first stop was Chinatown. I noticed Homegirl Cafe was right outside. I have heard about it on TV that it is a cafe that hires at risk and ex-gang members to give them a chance to become productive members of society. So we had to go in and have some breakfast there. It's a really nice cafe inside. They had a bunch of yummy looking desserts there too!

I ordered a yummy Mango Upsidedown Cornbread w/warm milk. Mmm....so good!
Jackie ordered a Fresh Fruit Salad w/Yogurt.

We got back on the Gold Line and headed for Pasedena. Let me tell you it was a nice ride, you get to see so many beautiful Craftsman and Victorian houses along the way! We got off at Memorial Park Station and walked to Old Pasedena. It was really easy. Later we stopped by Jackie's Art school, The Armory. I am glad she is taking art classes. I think she has a great gift as an artisit and I encourage her to keep learning.

We got hungry doing so much walking around we stopped into Noodle World Thai food! She got herself a Boba Thai iced tea, I just had a cold Sprite and we got some out of this world Chicken w/basil w/pan-fried noodles and chicken fried rice. I think that had to be the best chicken fried rice I ever had! Seriously!
After all that food we encountered this park and sat in the shade and had Girl Talk. I got to say it's great having a sister to share converstations with. We got to really just sit and talk for hours it seemed.

After Pasedena we got back on the Gold Line and transferred to the Red Line to Hollywood/Vine Station. We went to Ameba Records and checked it out. It's so awesome there they have tons and tons of music, movies, posters and other stuff. It was really a great day.

Parisian bakery surprise

I went to the Cerritos Mall to get some uniform pants and tops for work at the Limited and I happen to stumble by this new bakery Paris Baguette. Let's just say I was over the moon! They had so many delicatable french treats! Too bad I already had treats at home but I WILL come back here.
OMG just look at these pretty little cakes! I must have one of each!!!!!

Oh these look fantastic!
They have breads, sandwiches, cakes, macaroons, drinks. Just like a French cafe would have, although I saw a little bit of Asian types of breads and deserts too.
I also made my way to Sephora to get a new bronzer and blush. I picked NARS Laguna and Orgasm duo which were highly recommened by some of my facebook friends. Also a brow liner from Anastasia Beverly Hills and my b'day freebie birthday cake body wash! I got these cool Jelly Belly Cocktail flavor beans at Marshalls the day before, flavors include pomengrante martini, strawberry daquiri, margarita and pina colada. Pretty neat!

Birthday weekend!

1st stop on Friday June 3rd was Marie Callenders! I ordered the salad bar I love their cheddar/potato soup. I can't resist it. The pies were a great deal so we took 2 home one key lime and one peach. Yum! Oh and I ordered a pomegranate martini, pretty tasty! We were supposed to go see the Pirate's of the Carribean movie but we were both just too pooped for some reason? So we made it a blockbuster night and saw "Just go with it". It was okay, not my fav Adam Sandler movie.

The next morning I met up with Iris at Hoffs Hut for some bloody mary's, cape cod's (even though we asked for cosmo's, LOL!) and a mimosa! We were pretty giddy the hole time!!!

Then we were off to see "Bridesmaids" but we had to make a pit stop at Island's for a stronger drink there. Forgot what it was called....it was like 3 or 4 types of booze and pinapple/strawberry puree. Tasty...............!

The movie was a blast I laughed the entire movie! After we stopped by El Torito and had a margarita there. Then I took off to my dad's and had dinner at Sizzler's.
The next morning Dave and I went to The Reef for some brunch. They had a nice spread there.

They had a mexican section, a seafood section, omelette bar, pasta bar, breakfast area, kids area, dessert area, meat carving and of course as much CHAMPANGE you can drink!

I caught Dave getting some muffins!

And the awesome chocolate fountain! Ummm so good.

We went to the Aquarium of the Pacific after to walk off all the food! I love it there!

I had a great time there!

Dave got me these two Dooney and Burke wallets, first he gave me the black one and then the red came in the mail today! Iris got me Victoria's Secret Charm scent's of all kinds which smell delightful!!
