When I visited the family recently in So Cal, I stayed with Nel and Jess both, and we did so many fun things. We walked a lot, shopped a lot, and ate a lot. Whenever I go to my daughters' houses, I always love to look around and see what's new, or any projects they've done. Neither of them have a particular style in their home decor. They like unique things, one of a kind, sort of an eclectic style, which I appreciate as well. Here are a few things at Nel's house that caught my eye and were interesting to me. First of all, my plane flight there, having a view of the plane soaring in the sky and above the clouds was pretty interesting. And in about an hour, I was there!
grandma bought the kids this little unicorn bracelet that lights up, and they had fun with them.
All week, we enjoyed these raspberry heart cookies from Trader Joe's with our coffee. They were scrumptious, and turns out they both had these at their houses at the same time while I visited.
Nel bought me some roses for mother's day, and Mia popped her head in for the picture.
uncle b. bought the kids some Legos of the castle in Frozen. Me and Nel had more fun than the kids putting it together, and it wasn't as easy as it looks, cause it was a miniature castle.
Mia's sparkly boots.
I got my fill of Italian, my favorite food, as Renecke made homemade pizza one night. It was so good that I didn't get a picture of it, and just dug in. Another night, Nel made spaghetti and raviolis with pesto sauce.....delicious.
Nel's grandfather had this seagull at his house for years, and now Nel has it in her back yard. The purple flowers she planted are gorgeous.
The fairy garden is raked and groomed every so often, and Nel keeps it up nicely. Also, the jasmine bush is getting ready to bloom, and there was a waft of jasmine scent lingering in the air.
Someone got into the lipstick!
We went to a cafe one morning for breakfast, and these blueberry pancakes were the best I've ever tasted!
The pink flowers in the Starbuck's drive through were pretty, and had the most brilliant color.
Nel had tickets in advance to see Andrea Bocelli, so her and her in-laws went to the concert one night while I stayed home with Mia. She had a great time, and his grand voice amplified the theatre.
Well, that's about it. Next time, I'll share with you a few of the interesting things at Jess' house while I visited. ; )
