This Week’s Edition: {eat. shop. play. explore.}


Since it has been so warm and gorgeous outside, I’ve been craving SweetXO, an adorable {and extensive!} fro-yo/macaroon/gift/clothing/baked goods/amazing one-stop shop.  I love to grab a large cup of Dole Whip (YES I KNOW, they have it here!) and walk around for hours, looking at all of their fun items and super-cute clothing.  Join me, why don’t you!

{SweetXO is located at 5825 Kanan Rd, Agoura Hills and a new location in the Oaks Mall, right near the puppy store!}



So, I accidentally killed some pretty flowers I had in a planter in my backyard [apparently you have to actually water the dang things].  Anyways, I’m looking to update the garden with a few more springtime blooms, and what better place to grab some than Armstrong Garden Center in Thousand Oaks!  Plus, it’s Ladybug Weekend, which means everyone goes home with a free pack of ladybugs.  Not only are they lucky, but they’re also awesome for your garden!  🙂




I can NOT wait to check out the Calabasas Canine Classic this weekend!  My dog SERIOUSLY needs to get out of the house.  See Exhibit A:


…so I plan to walk on down there to check out the festival [which runs from 10:30am to 2:30pm]. There’s a dog agility play area, doggie story time, and most importantly, a beer and wine garden 🙂 I’m a little nervous, though, because there are going to be pet adoptions there — and I may or may not be tempted to impulse-buy a puppy. #judgeme



The Conejo Valley Home Remodeling Show {Westlake Hyatt} is going to be a great place to steal discover ideas for DIY home projects!


Oh, and did I mention there are going to be food trucks there?  AMAZING.  It runs Saturday 10a-6p, and Sunday, 10a-5p.  [hint: go to the photo gallery to download a free ticket! Otherwise, it’s $4/person at the door.  Shhhh…!]


What are you lovely people doing this weekend?

Happy Friday!
