Who’s ready for some topics?!
David and I have been doing a fair bit of the odd travels lately and to nowhere particularly thrilling. But when you have an infant baby and a sprightly 8 yr old that might be a good thing. Making the schlep anywhere is difficult but so worth it in order to see family and/or partake in the following…
A basketball tournament in Seattle for David! We stayed at a family member’s house which made everything a million times better having the extra room.
While in Seattle, Meg and I pushed our strollers around Bellevue Square! It was also the weekend before Mother’s Day and we happened upon this adorable photo backdrop and of course could not resist taking pics. I was a little excited.
My sister Rachel also got Meg and I these highly coveted pink Starbucks tumblers because she da best.
I walked around proud as a mother effin’ peacock pushing around my hand-me-down Bob while toting this Instagram worthy dazzling goodness. It’s been awhile since I’ve felt “cool” so thanks Rach!
A trip home for a family yard sale!
My grandmother recently passed and my grandpa moved out so our family got together for a nostalgic day of selling all the stuff in their house.
FUN FACT: My grandparents were snowbirds with a house in Yuma, AZ meaning they had lots of items from our friends south of the border. Like these beauts:
And also some fun vests from my grandpa’s big-band days.
The kids and babies had a blast too.
Our latest trip was to Salem for another basketball tournament.
Could you JUST DIE for her shoes?
In between games, we strolled the downtown and I found a store that is 100% my aesthetic…
I did manage to procure a mini-crown for Clara’s first birthday, however.
David and I also celebrated one year of marriage last month! It was such a great night. I made reservations at Piazza Italia and Clara was a peach the whole time.
And lately the sun has been out! Oh, the glorious sun. Makes everything better, albeit more sticky. This is the first time Clara and I have experience warm temps together and lemmetellya, homegirl and I get OUR SWEAT ON together. We both be bathin’ errr night.
But the nice weather also means a whole new way to dress!
Give me cotton overalls…
And GIANT velvet head bows…
Any day of the mothereffin’ week.
All for now. byeeeeeeeeeeeee
