Saturday Morning Stroll

I almost feel like an idiot admitting this out loud.  Up until last weekend M and I had never been to Abbot Kinney in Venice.  Now I am kind of mad at myself for us never exploring this area before.  

We fell in love the Venice a couple years ago visiting a friend of ours who lives by the canals.  Why we didn’t cross the street and explore is beyond me?!  

Here is a recap of our morning stroll through Venice

We found the cutest paper shop. I could have bought everything in there!

If you ever come here there is a Shabby Chic type of decor store.  It way beyond beautiful.  I didn't catch the name of it.

My two favorite colors! The next couple pictures were taken at a different decor store.

 An antique store across the street had the most intriguing window displays.  Different color glass cake stands from floor to ceiling in green, purple and pink.  It was a sight!

Looking good Brock!

 The biggest dog I have ever seen!

M's little brother is obsessed with cars.  We had never seen this car before.  We texted him a picture and his response was, "Oh yeah, the Karma.  It's owned by BMW and it solar powered.  They have only made a few and Leo DiCaprio bought the first one."  No, we didn't see him:(

Overall it was the most perfect start to our weekend!  I wish we could do it all over again tomorrow.

PS. Check out my new blog design.  I am in LOVE with it!

For as long as I've lived in SoCal I never visited that place either. I've only been to Venice maybe 3 times actually, so you aren't alone =) Glad you enjoyed yourself.

Love your new look! Now I have another place to add to my "to do" list!!! I work for Fisker. :) We aren't owned by BMW, but our CEO (well, he was CEO until Tuesday when they named a new one) used to work for BMW. Justin Beiber is getting one today on the Ellen Show for his birthday.
