Beach Towns & Sour Candies

I thought I'd share a few more pictures from our day trip to Carmel from last weekend.
Aside from the beautiful beaches...

And stunning houses...

The town is quite adorable, too! The flowers are always perfectly groomed and colorful. Here's a little hotel on the down town street:




They also have a small mall, but it does not disappoint.  Anthropologie is there! Here's their new window display:
 I think it could be an inspiration for some great DIY projects.  Maybe curtains or something fun!


I'm also still in love with this idea:

Down the street {past our favorite Coach outlet!}, is this little gem:


The Cottage of Sweets!  Hansel and Gretel anyone?


We picked up some gummies for my best friend who left back to school, some licorice ropes for my mom, a chocolate covered pretzel {which was promptly scarfed down in the car on the way home...} and my very favorite strawberry sour strips! For some reason I'm addicted to the quick chills sour candies give you, then the relieving sweetness immediately after.

I came home that night, sour candies in hand, and watched Modern Family as my face mask dried.
I promise I'm holding the sour candies, not a worm.
Trust me, a color picture would have scared you away. As if this black and white one didn't (;


Sadly, I polished off the last strawberry sour just a few seconds ago.  Just means we have to go back real soon.  Got that, Mom?  Ah, how I love this beach town. When I grow up, I want to live here.


Enjoy your Thursday!
Love,

  14. Looks like some place I will have to visit! Very charming and who doesn't love a good sweets shop! I guess last weekend was a foody type weekend. I went on a bakery crawl for my birthday, so if you ever need to know of a good place to get a cannoli or pizza in San Fran just let me know... or check out my recent blog post.

  18. I am in the midst of planning our family get-together there next year. Isn't Carmel divine? I could spend all day walking down the side steets and admiring the architecture. (And trying to get a peek in the windows too!)
