Sunday Afternoon Adventures

Sunday's are the days A & I get to spend most of the day together. He's off & I don't have to be at work until 4. So me being the ADHD type of person that I am, wanted to get out of the house and go somewhere(since there was no football on today obviously hehe). So we decided to take a trip out to San Juan Bautista. If you have not been here before you must go! It's a really small one stoplight town with major antique stores (A's favorite! JK) & home of the San Juan Mission. If your an old movie buff you'll know that part of the 1958 movie Vertigo was filmed at the mission (has to be one of my favorite movies! Probably because I love SF & I grew up in the area haha). Anyways we had a nice time walking through town with Marley & of course me stopping in the stores while my boys waited outside.

I stopped in this cute little store that was going out of business, which had tons of  Dia De Los Muertos & Mexcian folk art in it. If you know me you know that I absolutley love anything that has to do with Day of the Dead! (I mean anthing!). I think ever since I went to a Dia De Los Muertos exhibit in San Jose that A's dad was a part of (he is an amazing artist btw) I have been obsessed. There is where I found out that my name in Spanish is one of the iconic symbols of Day of the Dead, La Catrina. I love anything that has to do with Calavera's and even want to finish off my arm with a tattoo of one ;) So when I walked into the store  about died! Needless to say it wasn't hard for me to fall in love with most everything in there. I finally settled on a Frida Kahlo switch plate cover (LOVE) and handmade sugar skull earrings. 

We finished off the trip by stoping in this amazing bakery to pick up cinnamon loaf bread and a few turnovers. Not a bad Sunday if you ask me!

*PS. Turban headband is handmade by me & can be found at my shop Simply 1 Love.
