Old Pasadena ~ The Real Downtown

ValSoCal's recent post entitled I Love L.A. enspired me to post some of the shots my husband and I took on a recent Saturday trip to Old Pasadena.  There truly is something so cool and unique about L.A.  From where I live in Orange County it took us about thirty minutes to get to Pasadena - why have we not gone here more often?

Make your own facial cream - so cool - and very "L.A."

Cafe Santorini to get in touch with my Greek roots and eat some delicious food!  Also gave us a chance to discuss our 2007 trip to the beautiful island of Santorini...ahh.

 Yes, that's a Forever 21.  And yes, it's huge.

This was the CUTEST children's boutique...ever.

Lunch at Cafe Santorini. Chicken Souvlaki for my husband {with an amazing tsatsiki sauce...and I am picky}.  Fettuccini with sauteed mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, and creamy feta sauce for me. Mmm-mmm-mmm. {I was obviously trying to keep it light}

If you aren't a follower of ValSoCal's blog yet, you should be!  This is how she describes herself in the About Me section of her blog:  I am very sarcastic, I drink entirely too much coffee, Self proclaimed carbaholic, If there was a Target anonymous group...I'd have to join!!

A woman after my own heart!
