I would like to live in this restaurant

The food never disappoints in Bali, the taste, the presentation, the atmosphere, you name it and it is awesome. The first day we ventured out of the villa we went to Cafe Bali

Our poor driver I am sure thought we were NUTS. The boys all pilled in the back and the volume back there reached incredible levels, so many "excuse me guys?" (Both our kids "politely" say excuse me 500 times when they want to say something, it was hilarious listening to it go back and forth).
The minute we stepped onto the porch of the restaurant I leaned over to Chris and said: "I want to live in this restaurant" So now I am photo documenting the resturant so later I can go back and try to duplicate some of their awesome decor.
The inside didn't disappoint either.
The lighting fixtures were so cool
and I loved their wall of mirrors
Then this little area was tucked away in a corner and was completely different from the rest
I love hydrangeas, they made up a large portion of my wedding bouquet so I have been in heaven finding them every where in Bali
My own complaint would be how HOT is was. We were all sweating bullets. (did you notice in the pictures all the dudes either without shirts or in tank tops? Yeah we were in a total time warp back to 1985). Our boys were "glistening" ha!
The food was fabulous and although Abby had a meltdown we really enjoyed ourselves and if we go back to Seminyak I will absolutely be eating there again.
After lunch the boys graciously took ALL the kiddos back to the villa so Cher and I could shop (Seminyak is known for its shopping so we were pretty excited). My friend had told me about this children's store Clara Mia that carried clothes by a french lady that were to die for. Cher and I walked past and they were closed for lunch and we peered in and it looked like there were only a handful of dresses in the whole store. I thought aw great it is one of THOSE stores. We started walking down the street and that is when a massive thunderstorm let loose.
We were stuck in this random clothing store with CRAZY prices and store clerks who shrieked everytime the thunder would clap. FInally it let up and we headed back to Clara Mia. It totally lived up to the hype. I wanted to buy EVERYTHING in the store. But it was expensive so I walked out with one outfit. I totally tried to sneak pictures of some of the other outfits because I could totally make some of it but would never remember what they looked like. Cher was great at distracting the girl while I snapped some hilariously bad pictures with the camera down by my leg. We were so covert haa!
I am TOTALLY going to make these sailor shorts for Abby!
We also stocked up on decor for Abby and Audrey's rooms and I am soooo excited to start setting it up... and figuring out how to make pale green, metal walls look okay.... I love a challenge and all but this one is tough. In the end it was sort of overwhelming shopping there. There was just WAY too many streets all jam packed with tiny shops which were in turn jam packed full of merchandise.

funny, i went into a french kids clothing store in Singapore this week and took photos with the same purpose in mind! I could totally make that :).
And yes, sailor shorts and pants have been on my mind for ages. They are just so timeless and classic.

thanks for sharing your personal blog with me!
