Scenes from Last Week--A Glorious One, Indeed.


I knew the day would be a good one when the postman greeted me with this:
Not only one of my favorite books of all time, but a pop-up version no less!
A grad gift from one of my VERY BEST FRIENDS in all the world, Jenny!
After calming down from the gift excitement, Marcus and I hoped in the car to explore our state capital, Phoenix!
We stopped in at Book Gallery to ooo and awww over the beauty and aroma that old books provide, but were slightly disappointed as they did not have a hard cover of a Brave New World...perhaps I'll check the Mesa location (a location a personally prefer)
After a scrumptious meal at Bertha's we headed to The Streets for a hit of our latest addiction:
Coconut Milk Smoothie with Boba.
The Streets is a Japanese Drink Bar that keeps us coming back for more and more!
Please go. Thank me later.
On our way home we had our windows down to fully take in the wondrous and unusual May weather we were having, when sweet Arizona threw us another surprise--Rain!
So we left the windows down and enjoyed the gentle splashes on our faces as we laughed and blasted the tunes. I sure do love my husband for going on adventures with me.
It was a day to make the other days jealous.

I've never had a smoothie with Boba before. I need to search and see if we have it around here. 

In other news that Domo graffiti pretty much made my day. :)

I love The Little Prince, I have read it in French and in English.  However, I totally can't eat/drink boba haha :)

Jennifer Thomas said...

I am so glad you liked your present, I was a little nervous about it, since the only time we talked about the little prince was the day we first talked. I was thinking "maybe instead of "like" she said she hated the little prince". Haha Boba means silly girl in Portuguese. I would love to try a Silly smoothie. It looks delicious.

I loved The Little Prince. I remember getting it when I was little in Dutch (my native language) and then insisting with my mum that I NEEDED an original French copy when I was in high school even though French wasn't exactly my best subject... Haha. She was not impressed or persuaded.

And aren't pop up books amazing nowadays? We've started a little collection for my baby but I know I enjoy them more. We even have a Chronicles of Narnia one. Awesome. I actually saw an alice in wonderland pop up in a bookstore on Main st in mesa a few months ago that reminded me of you. Not sure if it was the same store you're talking about.
