Around Town {Spring Forward}

Blue skies and warm definitely feels like spring.  Or early summer.  In any case, it's awesome.

Last Wednesday I had lunch with my son at our usual spot which is right near the Capitol Records building.  I always want to take a picture of this iconic building.  Just can't help never gets old.
I also went to a screening of Le Weekend at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.  The movie was meh, but I always enjoy looking at the photos at the Academy.  So many of my old-time favorites line the walls (that makes me old, I know ;)
Walter Cronkite and Lucille Ball.

And my two all-time favorite television stars are right next to each other, Johnny Carson and Mary Tyler Moore.

I really sound like an old geezer now, but I can honestly say that I haven't watched The Tonight Show even once since Johnny retired.  I used to watch it every night.  

It's been a pretty good week for my family. Got to hear one of my son's songs on a TV show (Rake with Greg Kinnear). Then got to see my daughter's name on the credits at the end of Mr. Peabody and Sherman (which was a REALLY cute and smart movie...highly recommend!). A productive week I'd say!

Yesterday, my girls and I went shopping in Santa Monica and Brentwood.  It was a gorgeous day.
We hit the 3rd Street Promenade and then headed over to the Brentwood Country Mart.
Here's something at the Mart you probably don't read much about, but how cute are these old vintage sinks in the restroom at the Brentwood Country Mart?  Everything in this restroom is vintage and so cool.
I couldn't resist these coasters with gold dots at Sugar Paper L.A.
And how cute are these pink and gold thank you cards also at Sugar Paper L.A.?  Merci!
So we sprang forward this morning.  Do you like it?  I like the extra daylight at the end of the day, but I'm not fond of losing the hour of sleep.  How about you?
Hope you're having a great weekend!
So Downton Abby tonight...shortest season ever!


  1. Sounds like you've been up to lots of fun things!! I'm so happy to Spring Forward this year! I can't even be annoyed at losing an hour of sleep. The extra sunshine, and the warm weather that has come through with it, has been so nice today! Why is it that we forget how amazing Spring is every year? Winter wore me down, I'm happy Spring is around the corner :)

    1. You guys have had a particularly brutal winter (especially that 12 hour drive home from work!) so I, too, am excited for Spring for you!

  2. I love that building too. Of course, I love iconic any building!

  3. I guess I have never been to the restroom at the Brentwood Country Mart! I love those sinks!!

  4. Loveee daylight spring forward! Great pics and congrats mama on the good week for your kids!
