Our quiet-ish weekend.

Published December 20, 2012 by theycallmemrstibbs

I say quiet-ish as it all started quiet by doing to recycling. Yawn…. Boring I know.

But then we thought we should go shopping as Dr. Tibbs needed some football boots as we were hiring a car, due to our plans for Monday, we thought let’s go to the Santa Anita mall. Something we have never actually done.
It was so easy to get to. Only a 20/25 minute drive.

We hit a slight snag that we took an exit too soon. This actually worked out great we went through a very posh area of Arcadia, very close to the Arboretum, so close that the street had a lot of very large peacocks & peahens, and I mean real ones not statues.

When we arrived at the mall it was so Christmassy.



Complete with carousel & huge tree.

After searching through the relevant shops Old Navy, JC Penney & Sports Chalet we found no football boots. But I did find new shops that could be my new favorites.
We went off to the nearest Dick’s Sporting Goods. Oh what a surprise we found football boots.
So off we went home to rest as Monday we were going to Universal Studios.

We thought we would be smart and get to Universal Studios for opening time. We arrived at 8.30-ish and made our plan of action to start at the far end of the park, with the Transformers & the Mummy ride. We were the first on the Transformers ride and in the first group of people for the Mummy ride.

We considered the Jurassic Park ride but didn’t want to get wet.

Then we went on other 3D rides which were awesome.

We decided it was time for a little wander to take in the “sights”

It’s so FLUFFY!

If you haven’t seen Despicable Me you may think I’ve gone mad!

Needless to say we had a great day


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Oh yes, that time of year again. The only reason I say it’s beginning to look like Christmas is due to the fact that it is still sunny here. We are too low for snow even though the mountains get it.


But wow everybody loves their decorations here. By everybody I mean shops, people and apartment buildings.

I may as well start with our little bit of Christmas at home.
Our tiny tree. Isn’t she beautiful.


Our home made Christmas wreath


And our table centre piece in the making.


I saw these reindeer on Lake Ave I think they are so cute & shiny.
And lots of the different shops are also decorated.


The tree at One Colorado.

As is the front of our building!


Merry Christmas

Out with the Old and in with the New!!!

If most of you don’t already know I like… no wait LOVE new things.

So far this month it has been a thing of get rid of old things and get new.

For a start we moved out of our old apartment and into our new one, which is so nice.

Also as most of you know I love my long curls but I thought it was time for a change, so I took myself off to see Mona at Ambiance on South Lake avenue all thanks to Groupon. I was a bit cautious about going for a big cut but I thought I should jump in with both feet into the deep end.

Here is my before picture.


And now my After picture.


Surprisingly it only took an hour including a scalp massage and a protein treatment.

Also on the theme of old and new, whilst we were moving house I decided to sort through my clothing and got shut of a lot of things I don’t wear. So I thought it was a good chance to buy a new t-shirt.

So I bought this ultra cute men’s t-shirt.


Yes that’s right mens.  I have seen some more but I might wait until after Christmas.
