Spring Flowers, Kitchen Upgrade, & Bloggy Friends

It's 78 degrees outside and I feel like Spring has sprung in Los Angeles!

My Mom was in town on Friday and she took me on shopping trip to The Home Depot to buy the us some spring flowers for our balcony patio in honor of spring time.

Don't they brighten the place up a lot?!


The Mr. even brought me small bouquet of flowers home from the grocery store. So sweet!



Also, I'm happy to inform you that we are proceeding along with our "Kitchen Upgrade Project".

After shopping for tile at three stores, and bringing home five tile samples, this is the tile for the backsplash that the Mr. and I decided on and ordered!


It matches our granite, tile, and cabinetry perfectly! I love it! Here's a closeup...


As part of our big "Kitchen Upgrade Project" we are also installing some new kitchen lighting and redoing our living room and entry-way paint. Lots more details to come soon!


Lastly, Danica from Chic Runner and I are both Long Beach girls and have been bloggy friends for a while. We've hung out several times but this time we FINALLY managed to get picture.

Here we are before heading out to dinner at George's Greek in downtown Long Beach.



And here is Danica with Judah. We can her Judah's "blogmother." I think he looks pretty happy about that.

I've never been to George's, but after looking at the website I might have to try it next time I'm home.

I think the titles you picked out for your backsplash look great. I can't wait to see how it all turns out.

Can you let me know the name of that tile and where you found it? That is exactly what I have been looking for in our kitchen!!

I love that tile! Nice choice. :D I can't wait until it's 78 degrees again here in NY. It was 60 today and the Mr. and I were thrilled! I can't imagine 78 in March. :D

I am so jealous, I used to live in San Diego. now I live in the Midwest, where it just snowed again today, and spring doesn't appear to be here anytime soon. as for the tile, it's awesome.
