hey friends! I feel I haven’t been on here for a bit. I’ve been missing out on reading your blogs! How’ve you been?! Anything new?
the other day david and i took his brother to the comic book store.
meet diego! a badass and a star wars lover.
after picking up some comics, we sat in the car thinking of where to eat. i was craving a hot dog so bad. thanks to siri and google, we discovered that a retro diner that was near us carried hot dogs, so we went.
probably one of the coolest restaurants in our town…
i know some of you might not care, but excuse my hair. i had just gotten out of school. i was also too lazy to put on makeup. i’m glad david loves me regardless of how i look.
this was david’s bacon and blue cheese burger. i ordered a chili cheese hot dog, which was delicious and just the perfect meal to end this day. sorry for the lack of picture. i was too excited that when it got to the table the first thing i did was take a bite! can you blame me?
happy diego, proud of only eating tater tots that evening, haha
an afternoon with these two is always fun.
How’s your tuesday so far, dear reader? Are you having fun? What’s the coolest themed restaurant you’ve ever been to? Do you have a retro one in your town? Let me know, I like reading your comments and stories. :)
my grandfather was really fond of photography. he lived from march 1932 to this past june; 83 strong years. to this day my family and I are still discovering pictures he had stashed in different briefcases, bags, and folders from many years ago; some only his eyes had seen. we’ve also found several cameras that not even my grandma knew he owned. she said he would buy a camera and hide it from her because she would get mad at him for purchasing yet another camera. oh, grandpa. i get you. i, too, am obsessed with different cameras.
grandma’s recent discovery were a few photos which she believes are from the 50s, meaning my grandfather was in his early twenties when these were taken. it makes me happy to be able to see what he saw when he was about the same age as I am today.
these two photos above are from a bridge that was placed temporarily after a massive flood destroyed the actual bridge that united the mexican-american border on our town.
you don’t know how grateful i am that he took these photos. they are amazing. they give me an opportunity to picture what it would’ve been like to live in those times. it’s almost like experiencing it. thank you so much grandpa.
so I was exploring etsy, looking for a birthday gift for my mother, when I came across with this:
this plate, ladies and gentlemen, which may seem to you as just a wacky snoopy plate is actually part of my childhood! I had one just like that, and I have vivid memories of my mother serving me my favorite foods on it. I even remember washing it and it being in the different places we lived in when I was a child.
if my phone wasn’t dead right now I would be sending my mother pictures and we would both be trying to remember where the heck we left it! my guess is: it’s in grandma’s house and it might be chipped :(
my mother was born in ’66, I was born in ’94, the listing for the plate says ’65 – this leaves me with the questions: did it belong to my mother before it belonged to me, or did they still make these when I was a child and she just purchased one then?
ooh, the questions, the feels, the memories!
even though that little clown snoopy is screaming my name and bringing childhood flashbacks to buy it, i don’t know if I will.
I just can’t believe I found it! I had completely forgotten about its existence. wow! I can’t wait to get home and show this to my mom!
has something like this ever happened to you? are you as obsessed as my mother and I are with this little white dog? are you going to watch the movie when it comes out?
ahh, i’m just too excited! have a very nice day :)
