3 Things.

{La Posta in Santa Cruz, CA}

After our wonderful family holiday in Santa Cruz, my mom, Ziggy and I headed back to tidy up and enjoy a little sunshine, while we still have some left.  Getting an early start on spring cleaning, we stopped by a commercial laundromat.  And because I forgot to push the "start" button, we had a little extra time to kill in between washing and drying.  We happened upon  a Yacht Harbor area restaurant called "La Posta".  We sat at the bar {industrial stainless} tasting different wines and snacking on authentic (and surprisingly light) Italian pizza and in house freshly-baked bread.  Uh-mahzing!  And to think we discovered this little gem just because I forgot to push the start button!

Poor little Ziggy was left behind a lot this weekend,  but on Sunday morning, his luck changed when he headed to the beach with my mother.  He played in the sand for almost an hour, and then a very tired dog spent the rest of the morning laying out on the porch soaking in the sunshine. 

It was hard to pack up and leave; one more day would have been divine.  I think I'm still having a hard time adjusting back to my routine after the holiday commotion and shorter work weeks.  Hope all goes smoothly this week - it's my first full week back in four weeks - eeek!  Am I the only one who feels this way?

1. La Posta; such a wonderful find and sister restaurant to another favorite, Soif.

2. A new reading lamp from Pier 1 - I was bummed to find my lamp had broken, but my mood turned when I laid my eyes on this beauty.

3. The best {and easiest} chicken soup ever. And it’s from Cost Plus of all places!
