Harry Potter!! Let me just say, there were quite a few movies throughout this series that were disappointing. This was not one of them. I don't wanna give too much away for those of you who haven't seen it yet, but it was a fantastic end to the series. And I cried. I expected tears but not at this particular moment (trying not to give anything away here!!). It was so good!!
We headed to Santa Cruz for a weekend hangout with The Boyfriend's sister and bro-in-law. A little stop at the beach followed by some sugar-eating and roller-coaster-riding at the Boardwalk made for the perfect summer Saturday. I went a little nuts with the sweets while at the Boardwalk but I'm pretty sure there's a rule that says if you're at a carnival/theme park/circus/boardwalk/etc. you're supposed to indulge in all sorts of sugary goodness. I was just following the rules!
Part of this sugar goodness included chocolate covered bacon. Yes, bacon. With chocolate. We were skeptical so we just got one piece to share between the four of us. I'm a little embarrassed to admit this but I kinda loved it! I mean, I don't think it'll be my go-to chocolate but if it's offered to me again I can't promise I'll say no. :)
If you have the chance, I highly recommend a day or two in Santa Cruz. It's such a fun hippie beach town. I know you'll love it!
While waiting for a table at brunch, I popped into the thrift store next door just to kill time. I found a lovely little scarf for just a couple bucks. Thrifting success! Can't wait to try it out. I think it'll be perfect for Marissa's side braid/head scarf combo.
The scarf (it's folded in half but it's actually pretty long), plus some fun at the Boardwalk with pirates and cotton candy.
You can't go wrong with chocolate + salty!
I'm thinking about adding these two Santa Cruz photos to my Etsy shop. What do you think?
