You know you’re old when

…you go to see one of your favorite bands yet another time and get tired and slightly anxious that it’s standing room only. But hey! We went to a concert for the first time in forever so be proud of us. And here’s your token lame concert picture.  And another just because these are actually way better than my flip phone days.  Just look at that young, hip crowd, holding that fine gentlemen on that light-up […]

A little snow trip

terrific trips

Sometimes my husband takes me to magical places – like on this dreamy snow trip that couldn’t have come at a better time. We’ve never actually celebrated our anniversary properly so this year, we decided to go up a little early and cheers to three years of married life – and make sure we got there ;) That last month was probably the hardest one yet with that innocent looking little girl. I think every […]

Why picnic in a park when you could picnic in a cemetery?

Need I explain? By now I feel like you should just know these are the things we do. Because we are weird. And apparently slightly creepy… But anyways, pictures from the weekend… because it feels rare to actually get out of our house these days…. and my girl went to a pumpkin patch…. and her momma took WAYYYY too many pictures.  ^^This is why Grammy is the favorite. She does the sock shake with no shame […]

The Things I Love

I miss writing, I really do. It’s such a nice little outlet for me to remember the happies of life and prematurely laugh at the stupid things that continue to happen despite my best efforts to be classy and graceful at all times. HA. Anyways, the strangest thing keeps happening… every time I go to write something, the only title that comes to mind is “I HATE PAINTING” with the following content: I HATE IT I HATE […]

She Flew!

Ahhhhh! We did it! First trip under our belt! Miss Little and her Grammy and I took a trip to Atlanta for the Annual Portrait Conference. You may remember I signed up for this little escapade in an excited daze when she was still inside me, just 14 weeks along, when my mind dreamily envisioned her sleeping for the full first year of life. Ya, I have dreaded it every day since. How many diapers do you bring? […]

We left our baby… WHATTTT!?!?

And headed to wine country! This momma has been pumping like a mad woman for such an opportunity as this. This is also the time she strongly questioned her oh I’ll just use a hand pump decision. Go ahead, admire my now bulky forearms and hand squeezing power. Feel free to be amazed. Anyways, my worst nightmares did not come true (hallelujah) – we did not have to leave our baby with her first case […]

Our “Snow” Trip

family days / terrific trips

Thursday night, Greg came home to his sobbing, nursing wife, blubbering about how all she wanted to do that day was to make a nice meal and make herself pretty for him – obviously neither of which actually got done. I love my husband. He just laughs at me. Although I never managed to escape the homeless lady look I had going on, I did get to whip up some sort of something edible once I […]

So here is the little shack my husband took me to celebrate our last mini vacation as just the two of us for, probably, forever. It was glorious. We got there early so we could take advantage of that pool from heaven and smartly left our sunscreen in our bags going to the room. We now strongly resemble lobsters. But there were pina coladas and burgers and each wonderful thing!   And then after getting […]

From that one time… when we went to Napa and ate foods

So, we went to Napa last weekend and had a meal or two. I’m not really sure where to begin so let’s start here. These ribs were amazing. And no, they were not all for me. Stop judging, gosh.  They literally fell off the bone and into my mouth and in there all my little buds had a party. They partied so hard, I had a my whole pile finished and completed only to look […]

Oh Santa Cruz, how I miss you

date night / family days / terrific trips

I’m not sure why but I’ve been especially homesick lately. Luckily it was my best friends birthday this last weekend so I had an excuse to hit the road and rush upwards and onwards! Poor Greg had to stay home and work and work and work but he was ever so sweet and took me on a date to the magical land of Glendale before I left…. to get sushi. American pregnancy books say no no […]
