Get your shop on at PABOOM POP-UP!

it's been a great weekend.  the weather has been drop dead gorgeous.  i love Vancouver.  i know that even if i traveled the world, i would still end up back here with the mountains, the water, and the trees.  i love that we get to enjoy all four seasons even if that means a lot of rain.

i got dolled up and we rolled down to 4th avenue to check out the new Paboom Pop-Up shop!
we had to bribe moany mo to join us with his dino costume

Tanis and Mike did a phenomenal job getting the store up and stocked with the raddest gifts for this Holiday season, now including items from The Pauhaus!   

as you browse around the shop, take note of all the wood products, home decor and displays, handmade by Mike himself, including these miniature incense cabins that found its way into my bag!

with a little bit of time on our hands, he picked up a couple of oven gloves at MOTIV and had a yummy lunch outside in the sunny Choices/Whole Foods courtyard.   this brought back memories of when i used to head down to 4th for prenatal yoga and have my usual lunch of 2 mini meals for $6 curry chicken and broccoli salad.  the kids were so well behaved, the sun was so warm, and it felt so great to dress up!
