I had a great time Lena! Lets do it again sometime!

After dinner Frank, Christine and I took a walk around Emeryville. As we passed the Semifreddi’s bakery. I told them about how people dumpster dive for break there. So we went to check it out! And we came back with this!

022But only the loaf that I am holding actually came from the dumpster. Christine worked her charm got us some free dough and a cinnamon twist from the bakery (the cinnamon twist was still hot!) We decided to make a pizza from the dough.(On a side note, notice the blue of the sky in the windows!)

Here is what I came up with. Its simple, yet appealing. Thank you Sheraton!

The hotel that we prepped at for Angela’s wedding had really cool card key holders which inspired me.

I bought a lot of strawberries yesterday and I’ve been wanting to try canning something! So I did it! I hope they turn out okay…
