post No.789 Date Night

Joshua and I were honored when the folks over at Emma Magazine contacted us to see if we could share with their readers what we consider fun date ideas.  I’m lucky enough to have a romantic husband who likes to make sure that our time together (when were not with our little ones) is creative, adventurous and fun.  He often leaves notes on my desk with date options to pick from depending on what mood I’m in.  I always love what he comes up with and have a special box where I save all of them.  We shared with Emma 3 options that he recently offered me.


Multiple Choice Date Ideas  : Parcel Post

option 1 :
Flea Market Picnic
A Sunday morning Rose Bowl flea market date where we each get to choose a treasure of our choice followed by a picnic at Lacey Park  (our favorite park in South Pasadena)

option 2 :
Old School Arcade
This date would be to the Redondo Pier where there is an old school arcade on the lower level.
We’d get to play pinball machines, air hockey and challenge each other at skeeball.
After we’d grab dinner at the crab shack.

option 3 :
Bingo & Cupcakes
This date would be a hunt for a local bingo night and then going out for cupcakes afterwards.

For the record, I picked #1!

Happy Valentine’s Day

post No.785 Full of Love.

I love when it’s Valentine’s time at Urbanic. It’s so cute to watch people carefully picking out cards for their sweethearts and asking us our opinion on which we think is the best. We have a huge selection in the shop right now, so it’s not an easy task to help people pick, but we still get into it, and it’s fun to get involved.  Here’s a small handful of some favorites…

It's Valentine's Time at Urbanic

Oh and P.S and we have a little Valentines section up in the pop-up shop right here!

(1 + 6) Rifle  (2, 5 +8) Night Owl  (3 +7) Mr.Boddington. (4.+10) Sugar Paper  (9). Waste Not

post No.667 Valentines 2012

Okay, so I’m kind of “in-love” with our Valentine’s selection this year.  Excuse the pun, but seriously, I have no idea which one to get Joshua. We have so many good ones in right now I’m thinking he’s gonna have to get a few.  We did a little photo shoot of a couple for you to see, but you really have to come in and see the whole collection for yourself. We have an entire ‘love wall’ for goodness sakes!
