On Saturday my friends and I went to the annual Earth Day Festival in downtown Santa Barbara. I went last year with Anthony and I can’t believe a year went by so fast!
This year Anthony had a show to rehearse for, so I went with our friends Ben and Amanda. Yay for day drinking partners!
It was SUCH a gorgeous day. Warm in the sun, perfectly cool and breezy in the shade. While I was waiting for Amanda and Ben, I bought a top from the Crossroads booth there – my favorite second-hand store downtown. I even won a free necklace! I love events like this. I’ll make sure to show you what I got when I wear it (probably the first chance I get next week).
I also love that Firestone beer is always within arms reach in Santa Barbara. Ice cold DBA on draft made this day even more perfect.
I was pretty excited about my hairdo, I’m not gonna lie. I was inspired by a girl at work who had some low pinned braids the other day. I loved how it kept my hair out of my face all day, but I still felt kind of dolled up.
While we were sitting on the grass drinking beer, this little guy crawled onto my lap and started cuddling with me. Swoon. There were so many cute dogs EVERYWHERE. It was driving me crazy. I want one so bad so that next year we can take our own little pup. Santa Barbara is such a dog-friendly town and I’m dying to take advantage of it. Earth Day kicks off a string of festivals in Santa Barbara over the summer – there is so much I’m looking forward to. Solstice, Fiesta, and Anthony’s birthday are all coming up and I’m so excited! I won’t forget to share the festivities with you guys, and definitely consider visiting because it’s the best time of year in SB!
