032323 Do You Believe In Serendipity? & New Arrivals!


I just got back from a weekend in Palm Desert.  A quick trip to pick up some eBay merch and buy some artwork, lamps etc. for the store.

Here is some of the new stuff.  Stop in and take a look soon!

Luckily, Indiana was able to take Cha Cha for me so I dropped off the puppy in Marina Del Rey on Sunday Morning.

I had a blast in the desert with my friends and even got to see Tina Burke (one of my high school best friends) again! More on that in the ezine next week.

So, Indy and I made plans to exchange the Cha on Tuesday in Sherman Oaks.  I text her Tuesday morning and said pick a restaurant.  She texts me back with “The Front Door”.  Perfect!

This is where Serendipity comes into play.  We walk in and the hostess was none other than Lauren Burton (one of Indy’s good friends from the Pepperdine Theatre Program).  What in the World?  Seriously, a random pick and there is one of her good friends.

What a hoot!  Indy and I were seated and I asked her what the rest of her day looked like.  She told me she was meeting up with Clayton (another Pepperdine Theatre kid) to work on their show for this Thursday night.  She tells me that he lives right around the corner.  OMG!  Get him to come over and have a drink with us and surprise Lauren.  He agreed!

When he walked in, Lauren was chatting with us and we said “You should probably go seat that guy”.  “No” she says “The other hostess has him”.  We said it again….and again she brushed us off.  Clayton proceeded to the bar and then came up behind Loren and surprised her.  LOL. We were all laughing so hard.

Such a Serendipitous day and we all got to catch up.  My one hour lunch turned into two hours.  Lauren even gave us the “friends and family” discount and sent over a complimentary desert.  My life is so much fun!

I posted the reunion on Instagram and asked Indy and Clayton for two hashtags.  Obviously, #Pepperdine and then Indy says #Serendipity.  I had just recently watched that movie with John Cuzak (one of my favs) so it made me smile!

OK enough about me…..Happy Thursday! It’s time for our weekly instalment of new arrivals. YAY!
