A weekly recap of snapshots documenting our adventures, happenings, eats, and cocktails.
Ran past this billboard on what was supposed to be a 5 mile run (we're training for our 4th Disneyland Half Marathon). Despite liking LA very much back, we have not been enjoying its summer heat. Ended up running 2, walking 3. Womp womp.
Put our pimento/allspice dram to good use this past Tiki Mug Monday by mixing up an Ancient Mariner.
Attempted to do a family portrait for a selfie contest that the Shag Store was holding. This was probably the best of our shots. If you're curious about what we had in our cups, I had a Don's Daiquiri and Greg had a Derby Daiquiri (since National Daiquiri Day was last Sunday). You can find both of those recipes in the Grog Log.
And here's all the Shag Swag we won. We somehow didn't have any of it in our collection yet!
Worked from the comfort of home due to the LA heat (the Modern Tiki Lounge studio unfortunately does not have AC). Gatsby fell asleep on the job.
Blogged about 8 books that convinced me to quit my 9-5 in favor of freelancing and starting up Modern Tiki Lounge. This was one was a little more personal to me and described how some of this journey has unfolded.
Walked this little guy (you know, the usual).
Ventured over to the WonderGround Gallery at Downtown Disney to pick up the newly released Shag Jungle Cruise print for the 60th Anniversary celebration. Also ended up snagging Adventureland and Tomorrowland prints from the 50th as well as a glass and some t-shirts with the new print on them. Excited for the new additions to our collection!
Yummm. In case you missed it, we were recently in search of the best beignets.
Found these great pins of two of our favorite rides at Disney's Pin Traders!
Also managed to get these out of a 60th Anniversary blind box! Awesome since Alice and Tinker Bell are two of my favorite characters.
Tiki bar doors are kind of the best.
So many great tiki vendors!
Closed out our week with a birthday celebration that involved a visit to the newest member of the family, Juliette. She inspired a "Modern Tiki Baby" nursery design we came up with this week - check it out!
'Til next week!
