cruise and just life stuff

So May pretty much flew by! Since I last blogged momsie came into town, Doug and Kemi came into town and Adam and I went on a cruise! It was fun having mom here, we shopped some, ate a lot, and she got some good play time in with B. Right after she left Doug and Kemi came! It was fun to spend some time with them before we left. Two of our mi casa darlings are spending the summer in Santa Barbara so they stopped by our house on their way and had dinner with the 5 of us, so fun! It was so good to see them and catch up, warmed the ol' heart cockles. :) Adam and I flew to Houston, TX on Friday and our friends picked us up from our hotel Saturday morning and we made our way to Galveston, from there we cruised to Mexico for 5 days and it was glorious. It was so fun being with our dear friends, but also, just relaxing and enjoying a lovely cruise. When we got home the cruise felt almost surreal, like it hadn't even happened! It went by so fast! We spent our days lounging by the pool, sipping yummy drinks and reading and chatting with our friends, the evenings we got dressed up and went to dinner, played lots of blackjack (we won!) and went to shows. It really was a great vacation and I'm so thankful we got to go! (*and a huge thank you to my sweet in-laws for staying with the ninner!).

Since we got home we're still in vacation mode, the laundry is piled up, B has crazy hair and has been in pjs most of the day, and we're all just chillin'. Last night we went out to dinner with some friends and sweet cousin Kyle and his girlfriend stayed with B, that was fun. I haven't wanted to talk to much about it on the ol' interwebs but some stuff went down at church that didn't sit well with us so we've decided its time to move on and sadly, to resume the church hunt (insert very sad face). So, we slept in today and are just taking it easy for the afternoon.

In fun news we all head back to Texas in 11 days and are pretty pumped for that! Also, one of my oldest and best friends is flying into town on Tuesday and I'm SO excited to get her all to myself for 3 whole days! So, fun things coming up -yay! B's last day of school is on Thursday and then full-on vacation mode can begin! Hooray for summer! Sorry for the blog lull there, thanks for checking in!! xo

Mother's Day 2015 and other things

Mother's day was really really lovely. As previously mentioned the weather around here hasn't been too great, but the sun came out on Sunday and it was so nice! All 3 of us went to the Rose bowl flea market (which is one of my very favorite things), then we came home and laid outside on the grass for a while. Then we showered and did a little shopping in Old Town before having HUGE burgers at Slaters 50/50 for lunch. We did a little more shopping on the way to the car and then came home and sat on the porch and then later Adam and I watched one of our favorite shows. All in all, a great mothers day with my 2 favorites. :) Hope all you mamas out there had a great one, too!

This week has been pretty chill, tonight one of our friends from high sierra is coming to spend the night at our house -it will be good to see him. Then tomorrow we'll get the house cleaned and ready for momsie to come on Thursday! Brennan has been asking every.day. how much longer until Thursday (she's pretty excited to see grandma). I got a letter in the mail that B is getting an award at school on Friday so it will be fun to have mom in town to get to see her accept it! They mentioned it would be a good idea to keep it a secret so I haven't told B. :) So proud of my girl!

Our friends and Adam and I are officially on our "cruise countdown" -can't wait for vacation with some of our besties!! Its been a weird/odd/tough year, looking forward to a break from real life. :) Happy Tuesday, all! xo

rough couple weeks

Its been gloomy and ick here in southern California the past week, I'm ready for the sunshine to come back out and to resume evenings on my porch with Adam and B. :) I feel like the weather has also been indicative of how the past couple weeks have been, gloomy and ick. I don't want this blog to be my venting place (well, today anyway :) so I'll just say its lame when adults don't act like adults and don't take ownership of their mistakes. I'll just leave it at that.

Anyhoo..........momsie comes a week from today (who hoo!) and I've got some little projects that have been hanging over my head that I want to work on before she gets here. B gets out of school at 11:30am today (does any one else notice a theme of my kid NEVER being in school?!) so I'm off to get her shortly. Thankfully Adam's sickness is on the mend (he's had a nasty cold all week) and the sun is supposed to come back soon, hopefully a new day is coming! :) Thanks for checking in! xo
