Pinterest made me do it

Lest you think I pin in vain... Old owl in picture frame in the closet?
Bright paint and chalkboard paper
Voila! Meal planner... (yes, I said Pop Tarts)
Tiny door?
Willing painters
Fairy door!
And it's not just the crafts, I've made plenty of the recipes (not always a success), not too mention the "Fashion and Accessories" board. On that note, Pinterest, no matter how pretty and close up the picture of brussel sprouts is, they are still brussel sprouts, and guilt free ice cream made soley out of frozen bananas is in no way ice cream.

Boys on BART

We hopped on the BART and took a ride under the Bay to Union Square this weekend. Riding the BART is a treat in itself for the kids. Edwin does it every day, but the rest of us only take it every few months.

It was Noe's first BART ride. At first she was pretty scared of the loud noises and people shuffling about, but she got used to it and relaxed after a while.

The best thing about taking the BART to Powell Street is walking out of the station to see the most humongous glorious Forever 21. Yes, FOREVER 21 thank you very much. Don't judge. Anyway, I wasn't the oldest one there.

I suppose the cable car turnaround right there is pretty cool too, for tourist and all. But of course we live here, so I would never just stand there watching and taking pictures for 15 minutes :)

After a little shopping, it's a short walk up to China Town. Always a feast for the eyes!

There was an impromptu new year's dragon dance that passed right in front of us on our way to the restaurant.

Lila was less-than-thrilled when the three noisy dragons then parked themselves in front of the restaurant we were heading to, blocking our entrance (and hence, lunch) for about 20 minutes!

Such a fun afternoon. I don't know why we don't head over to San Francisco more often. Maybe it's all the Girl Scout meetings, birthday parties, play dates... oh, yeah, that's why.

Most Romantic Valentine's Gift EVER

So maybe I hinted I wanted one of these. Edwin always comes through for me! Seriously, is this the most romantic Valentine's Day gift EVER?

This is the most awesome model, with vitreous and zonules even.

When I hinted I wanted a model eye, it gave me the idea to surprise Edwin with this.

Get it? I'm an eye doctor and he's a pulmonologist?

How cool to have correct anatomical models in our office that someday we will have in our house. The kids had fun examining our gifts.

Mailbox surprise

I saw this cute craft last year at the Anderson Crew, and was so happy to find the little mailboxes in the dollar section at Target this year. I wasn't quite organized enough to find wooden candlesticks to paint, but hey, I was doing good to glue them down and write on their letters.

Here is my littlest Valentine hamming it up for the camera.
Happy Valentine's Day! Share the love... and candy!

New bracelet, new packaging

This new amethyst gemstone bracelet feels so great on your wrist. It has such a nice weight to it, and it is adorned with a hand stamped disc. Personalize it any way you like in my etsy shop.

Wear it alone, or stack and layer em all the way up!

When you purchase your custom jewelry at Under Her Charm, how will it arrive? Every year or so I update my packaging, and I'm really happy with this new look.
