Weekend Recap: Bridal Shower, Angels & Demons, and DIY Screens

Happy Monday! Is it me, or does the weekend never seems to be long enough? But at least next weekend is a three day weekend!

Saturday morning I went to my friend, C's Bridal Shower in Santa Monica. It was beautiful! Right on the beach, delicious food, lots of fun!

Of course I forgot my camera (bad blogger!) But here is pic of her and us Bridesmaids at her other Bridal Shower in West LA:


Then Saturday evening the Mr. and I drove down to Laguna Beach to meet my Dad to have dinner and get my Wedding Dress from him for my Trash the Dress. We had dinner at the amazing Las Brisas Restaurant. Another stunning view from the restaurant. Check it out:

I guess it was Prom in Laguna Beach, because the restaurant was filled with teens all decked out for Prom, which was pretty fun to see.

We also went and saw Angels and Demons with him. The movie was entertaining but there were so many plot holes in it that I just couldn't get past. Kind of a bummer, because I remember enjoying the book when I read it in college. I would give the movie a C- or D+.



Sunday I was supposed to have my Trash The Dress. But my photographer got sick and we had to postpone it. Boo!

So instead the Mr. and I went Costco for some grocery shopping. While I was there I also picked up this little guy:

A new iPod nano in my favorite color! The Mr.'s old iPod mini finally died, so he got my old Nano and I got a new one since I use mine all the time. Isn't he a nice husband?


Speaking of how much I love my husband...

On Sunday we also went to Home Depot where he purchased materials to make our own window screens. Why did we have to make screens?

Our Condo has these beautiful windows that push open like this:

And have no screens.

Now that our kitten, Judah is getting bigger, we needed to screen those windows so he won't jump/fall out of the windows and plummet 10 stories down.

So the Mr., by himself, built screens that we can insert into the windows and remove when we need to close them. Isn't he amazing?! I was very impressed.

Judah, on the other hand was more interested in chewing on the screen building materials, so I had him help me with the laundry. Some help he was....


Oh, and I almost forgot - On Sunday night we capped off the weekend with 4.7 magnitude earthquake centered about 10 miles from where we live. Our building was shaking for what seemed like forever, but thankfully nothing broke. Always exciting living in old shakey town!

Awww, sweet kitty! So cute!

Katie said...

I can't wait for the trash the dress pics either! So exciting! And I congrats to the Mr. for being crafty enough to make the screens!

Sara said...

What a cutie! I agree with you on Angels & Demons. I thought the book was better and mainly because it had SO much more character development.

How handy of the hubby! Also, I'm so glad y'all were okay. I have been in an earthquake once while visiting southern california about 17 years ago (that sounds so long ago, I was 7 when it happened) and I still think it is one of the weirdest feelings I have felt.

How did Judah take the earthquake? I know my parents weren't home during it, but when they got there a good amount of stuff had fallen off shelves and the cats were all in hiding. I hope it didn't scare Judah too much

Brittany Ann said...

You have a talented husband!

I liked the book Angels and Demons, too! Bummer the movie isn't as good...well, that puts me in less of a rush to see it.

Rachel said...

Sounds like a busy weekend! Lucky you with your new BLUE ipod! You've got good husband willing to let you get the new one :)

Mrs. Not-so-Domesticated said...

Glad everything was ok after the earthquake. We need new screens for our windows, I'm not sure that my hubby would know how to make them though...your kitty seems as helpful with laundry as my dogs...
