80's flashback weekend

so this labor day weekend has been pretty awesome... somehow a lot of it was a celebration of my youth...  friday night my gbf and i went to the hollywood bowl for "80s night" to see berlin, the fixx, b-52's and human league.... so much fun! i remember thinking the b-52s were old when i saw their videos on mtv back in the day.... amazing that they are performing now! and when we learned that kate pierson (groovy big haired redhead in the group) is 63 now we were amazed! she looked fab (well, from the cheap seats we had at least!)...

anyhow, continuing with the unplanned flashback theme of the weekend a group of friends and i went to see edward scissorhands at the hollywood forever cemetery on saturday night... i forgot how much i loved that movie and used to idolize the pre-shoplifting winona ryder and dream of 21 jump street star johnny depp...  a great evening filled with wine and kfc! yeah, kfc was a fave from my childhood (known to me then as kentucky fried chicken)... i didn't grow up on fast food but as a treat for our birthdays my parents let my sisters and me pick between kfc, pizza hut and long john silvers for our birthday dinners... i haven't had it in so many years and i have to say it still tastes just as good as i remembered...

of course after an evening filled with fried chicken i needed to work it off and went for a fabulous hike on sunday morning at my very favorite trail in the santa monica mountains with a clear view of the ocean!  weekends like this one just help to reiterate why i love living in l.a.!

and i am in the midst of a new diy project that i can't wait to share! i hope to do so before the week is up! i ran out of supplies and the store was closed for the holiday so my completion will be delayed a smidge... it is going to be pretty awesome if i do say so myself... stay tuned... here's a sneak peak of some of the supplies used...
