Good Morning, South Pasadena

Remember when I posted about the National Film Society Award Nominations? Guess who won???


You’ll see my “acceptance speech” next week. We filmed the video in South Pasadena this morning, and since I was in the area, I swung by one of my favorite bakeries, Great Harvest.




Snagged the last Chocolate Chip Pumpkin muffin sample


Also bought a loaf of Dakota – their goodies really are the best!


Since I had some time to kill before the shoot, I walked around the adorable area




Got some work done afterwards too



Don’t think I’ve ever been to a library with more heavy-breathing men. Had to switch tables twice, it was so distracting!



Now I’m back home for a snack + walk with my own loud breather



Happy Friday!

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen)

    Congratulations on the award! Funny how things like heavy breathing get to you when it’s so quiet. It gets very distracting!

    Congrats Lynn!! I love great harvest – except I don’t have one near me and the one by my Mom’s house closed. :(

    Happy Friday! (it would be for me, but I am still stuck at work) :(

    Oooh, Great Harvest! I’ve never been, but have been wanting to check it out! Is the Dakota their gluten free loaf??

    I was just in Pasadena on Thursday, and am happy to report I encountered no loud breathers, haha! =) At least it’s not EVERYWHERE in that town!
