I am kinda obsessed with Westways magazine (yes, the AAA magazine).  It always has great suggestions for fun things to do locally.  This past Sunday, the bf and I drove to Oxnard in hopes of exploring the Strawberry Festival.

I have to say, I was a little disappointed.  I also realized during this excursion that I might not be a festival kind of girl.  It was REALLY hot, traffic was REALLY bad, and the line for strawberry funnel cake had 400 people in it.  It also didn’t help that I was REALLY tired.

I enjoyed myself for about an hour and a half; after that, I was ready to go home.   The highlight of the trip was the ADORABLE cactus I got for $7.00 from the Heritage Succulents booth – so cute and the perfect budget accessory for my book shelf.  I just have to make sure the cat can’t reach it.
