Cinco de Julyo

For Independence Day, we drove to Pasadena and bought new dishes at IKEA. Here are the adorable bowls, in Palm Springs-y orange and green:


Jason loves the square black plates. I love the wide bowls with just one flower.

Here are the side plates.

And FINALLY I have a great big serving platter.


Then we stopped at a fast foodish noodle place, because we were low on time and high on hunger. I ordered the tofu lo mein:

And Jason and I split the spinach/tofu gyoza:

After we got home, we had just enough time to get changed for a night hike. We climbed the Lykken Trail and watched five fireworks displays at once.

PS after dark

Hope all of you had a great Fourth of July and are having an equally good fifth of July!

Ikea is the greatest. It's a good thing that the closest one to me is an hour and 45 minutes away or I'd be there daily (I'd also be broke, but my house would look amazing!). Love your new dishes!
