saturday around town

January 9th | san luis obispo


we’ve been out of town for the last few weeks, so it was wonderful to have a saturday at home.

after a veeery lazy morning, we went downtown and got CPK for lunch.

{do CPK’s exist outside of california??}

then we browsed around barnes and noble and saw the new chipmunks movie.

can i just say $8 for a child’s matinee??!  yowza!

i hope your saturday was restful and fun.

if i could get just one more saturday, i’d be sooo close to catching up!

    Looks/ sounds like a wonderful day! We have CPK here in Minnesota too. I haven’t been in forever though… you might have just sparked a craving for me.

    California Pizza Kitchen sounds yummy! We have one in Omaha. I might just have to visit soon. Just ordered a necklace and so excited to get it.

    Arizona has CPKs! How was the Chipmunk movie? Good for littler ones (3 and 5)? If you’re looking for a great movie, I have taken my kids to see Princess and the Frog TWICE! I know you have 2 boys, but my son LOVED the movie and his favorite was Louis the Alligator. Was that a completely ridiculous suggestion given you have only sons? Would your oldest cringe at the thought? 😉

    Chicago and Nashville have CPK’s. Yummy! So glad you had a restful Saturday. We watched it snow most of the day… lovely.

  5. Chrissie says:

    Looks like fun. Wish I was there.

  6. Roban says:

    There are CPKs in other states… we have one where I’m from…. Also Barnes and Noble stores. Don’t you just love them?

    Hi Lisa-

    I have been following your blog for a bit now. We live in Bakersfield, but our family has a house in Morro Bay, so we are in SLO quite often. When we were there last week, we went to the Sunset Drive-In. We took our family of 4 & it was only $16 for all of us! And it was a double feature of The Princess & the Frog and The Chipmunks. We were snuggled in our PJs & could bring our own popcorn or favorite SLO yogurt. It was so much fun! What a great experience, especially for kids who don’t often get to experience the drive-in. Maybe next time you are looking for a fun & reasonably priced movie option, give it a try!! And CPK is great, but when we are in SLO, it is almost impossible to pass up Firestone. Yumm!!

  8. janetha says:

    yes! we have CPK here in SLC. yum yum. that is outrageous for a CHILD’S matinee price. but i do want to see the squeakuel!

  9. Toni says:

    I love CPK! They certainly don’t have them here in Germany :)
    *So* happy you’re going to take part in a 100 project!!! Can’t
    wait to follow your work. xo.

    Never heard of CPK. What is it? Your small town is beautiful.

  11. cpk is in the atlanta ‘burbs, and there’s nothing comparable to their crust. i love me some chicago deep dish, but this pizza’s great when you want thin!

    have not had a quiet weekend…need to rest today, even though there’s work to do. could use some prayers that i do not succumb to the tyranny of the urgent.

  12. jamie says:

    we’re from ann arbor, michigan {go blue} and we have a california pizza kitchen here. one of our favorites!

  13. Sue says:

    There are several California Pizza Kitchens in Arizona.

    Lisa-Sounds like a really fun weekend! Shouldn’t moms just get an extra Saturday–at least one a month? I think so. : )
    I am thinking of taking my 5-year old to see The Chipmunks, did your boys like it? I think my Wyatt is the same age as Matty maybe? It does look cute. And yes, we do have CPK here in Illinois but the closest for us is Chicago, a couple hours away.

  15. carrie says:

    Looks like you had a great time! And, yes, CPK does exist outside of CA – thank goodness! We have one here in Raleigh, NC.

    p.s. I love, love, love you jewelry – already have 3 pieces and am thinking of more!

  16. lisa says:

    matthias LOVED the chipmunks, David slept thru most of it. I thought it was fun–but not as good as the first one.

    In this area of Florida
    I only find CPK in my grocer’s freezer section
    boohoo….NOT the same experience

    When in Hawaii
    we ate at CPK at Pearlridge regularly.

    Enjoy for those of us deprived!

    CPK in Minnesota! A little slice of California sunshine in the winter is a delight! :)

  22. Sarah says:

    Yes, we have them here in MN, but I think someone already commented that.

  23. Oh man, I need five Saturdays in a row. I don’t think mamas can EVER be truly caught up. And even if it does happen, it happens for just a fleeting minute.

  24. Tracie says:

    Richmond, VA has a CPK and I eat there every time I visit my mama! YUM!

  25. shana says:
