Ice Cream and Shopping

Jess and I had a most perfect Saturday in the Elmwood district of Berkeley.  First, we walked into Treehouse Green gifts.  All the organic, and green gifts are so fun.  We couldn't resist getting a few more onesies for the little guy.  Then we had a late lunch at a little Italian place.

Of course, there is always room for dessert.  An ice cream shop must be good if there is always a line out the door, no matter the time.  10 am, yup, 9 pm of course.  Jessica and I decided to see what the buzz was all about.  Ici is the best ice cream shop=ever!  Everything in this area tastes so good.  It's because everything is made lovingly from scratch with only the best ingredients.   The menu changes daily.  If I weigh 20 pounds more when I next see you, you now know why, as this shop is only 3 blocks from me!  

Walking around the corner, we happened to spy a shop with cute awning with a pretty little window.  We decided to check it out.  We walked by, ice cream in hand and saw the sign that said, please ring the doorbell.  We were scared.  We definitely knew we had to finish the ice cream before venturing in.  I'm still not sure why the doorbell, but I'm glad we went in.  Every detail of this place was amazing.  There was a pretty green  satin bow around a gorgeous bird cage with real doves inside.  Each piece of furniture that displayed all the goodies was hand picked, they even had a venetian chandelier.  I couldn't stop starting.  We both found plenty of goodies.  This place probably changes weekly, so I must return to The Tail of the Yak to see what other treasures they have to sell me!
