D.I.Y. (Pallet Inspired) Desk!

Ok ……. I got a little sidetracked at Home Depot with my dad over the weekend and this is what happened. I’ve been obsessing over pallet projects thanks to Pinterest (of course) but couldn’t bring myself to pay  $50 for a used pallet that was questionably sturdy! So,I decided to attempt it from scratch and I am so happy with the result! All together it took my dad & I about 4 1/2 hours and $50 (total) to make this bad boy and I think it is just perfect, the only thing I have left to do is pick a color to stain it which just may be the most difficult task. I’m horrible with decisions.

Cheers to getting creative! Now i’m off to stress about stains! I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend and that you get to spend it with those you love, be that those you’ve birthed, or those who’ve birthed you lol!

Old Town Adventures

I can get so busy that I forget to stop, take a look around and truly embrace the beauty of where I live. Temecula (which people finally know thanks to our wineries) is a stunning city, and Old Town is one of my favorite places to walk through whenever I get a chance. Lucky for me today was one of those days! A good friend of mine Lena & I met up at Havana Kitchen for our favorite, a sal-latte (seriously, if you’ve never tried a Cuban sal-latte you need to stop what you’re doing and GO!) and some breakfast before heading over to the open marketplace to check out all their goodies. We tasted different honeys and browsed organic creations from avocado oils to goats milk soap & toiletries. I was so inspired by the succulent gardens that I’ll be heading to Home Depot to get creative with my own, so stay tuned! After the marketplace we popped into a new restaurant The Goat & Vine for a delicous vegan flatbread pizza, a local brew and some catching up, which was just what I needed. It’s so awesome to see our little city grow into a bustling hub with new restaurants and hip shops, I can’t wait to see what opens up next!
