This past weekend, four of us hopped into the car and bypassed the Gilroy Garlic Festival (though not its traffic-*sigh*) in favor of a weekend in Santa Barbara. It was three days of lounging on comfy white duvets, munching on homemade bread topped with TJ’s everything bagel spice, slurping up espressos, boogie boarding, snapping photos (in my case, endless amounts), and just plain bonding. The only sad part was that Katie is in pursuit of her future (med school!) and so spent the weekend studying with her favorite accessory, and we missed her!
Road trip essentials: a floppy hat and… a kitten?
Friday night dinner was Italian, including a caprese salad, pasta, homemade cake, and wine.
Our new favorite topping for EVERYTHING- TJ’s Everything But The Bagel Sesame Seasoning.
My favorite part was the walk to the farmer’s market. I love looking at cute houses…
Saturday morning wouldn’t be complete without a coffee shop stop.
