Best Week Ever!

This week was the best week ever! June 19th-25th, 2017!

I made the most delicious tofu scramble- with sweet potatoes and mushrooms 🍄


We met this dog (which Dash insisted was Conan- our dog) at the mall 🐶

Sailor is officially standing on her own, all.the.time. (It’s awesome!!)


Yes, these two are standing in a dollhouse. 


Dash discovered peanut butter toast!


My friend Heather and I made these!


And, the summer solstice actually brought summer weather with it!


And…

I’m definitely buying these cute snack boxes/trays for the kiddos

14 of the dreamiest places to sleep over in Canada 🇨🇦 

The world’s most beautiful libraries! (Oh em gee!)  

Love these pillows!

Not that I’m wishing 2017 away, but aren’t these flutes perfect for New Year’s?!

Possibly the best museum gift shop ever.

So much this! 

And…

Did you know this is Steve Harvey’s first name?

This week was the best week ever! June 12th-18th 2017

It was Father’s Day! And we had a Father’s Day BBQ at our house with my family and Steve’s folks- we spent a lot of time playing and getting our feet dirty! (A sure sign of summer!)

Dirty little feet!

Dash ate avocado toast for the first time! (And anytime this crazy picky eater eats something new, it’s something to celebrate!)

IMG_1050

Sailor is so close to walking, we can all taste it! (And it’s gonna be trouble!)

IMG_1057

We worked on shopping for our summer wardrobes… and ran errands

IMG_1056
Check out this sassy look!
IMG_1053
The traffic in this aisle is insane!

We got a new car!! I am officially a Mom that drives a minivan, and I LOVE IT! (This car is so spacious, Dash can actually run around it! Ha! (when the car is parked- obviously!)

IMG_1058

IMG_1052
We are all very excited about our new van!

We got lots of shoulder rides…

IMG_1049

And snuggled, a lot. This was the best week ever 🙂

Plus…

The evolution of women’s sizes

We just bought this for Dash for the summer and I’m stoked for him to see it- once we put it together!

After so much research, I decided to buy this mid year planner for my resolution to really keep a planner this time…

This was part of Steve’s Father’s Day gift and I can’t wait to try some of these recipes!

I love this blog and one of her features is about what she feeds her vegan daughter- some great ideas!

Best Week Ever!

This was (kinda) the best week ever! June 5th-June 11th, 2017

I’m still recovering from the shitty week we had last week, and this one, truth be told, wasn’t a ton better…but we’re trying! Here are some snapshots of this week which consisted of trying to rid myself of some bad mojo and bring back some positive vibes.

I got my haircut to try something new and fresh. Ever since I had my hair bleached out and dyed red (which it obviously isn’t anymore…) my hair has been totally dry, unmanageable and just plain aw-ful. So, time to chop it off.

IMG_0712

I tried to sweat out that bad mojo as much as possible, and my muscles are feeling it tonight!

IMG_0711

I had more than 1 glass of chardonnay 🙂

IMG_0710

I tried to channel my energy into getting something done! This patio (pictured below) is now free of weeds!

IMG_0763

Steve and I went out for a date night for Indian! Too good.

IMG_0709

And I remembered how lucky I am to have these two monkeys…

Plus, here is the look of pure determination.

IMG_0762

And…

This shirt is a serious MUST!

An energy cleansing kit.

A who’s who on the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Loney Hearts Club Band

Get a surfer body.

Why don’t they make wood paneled cars anymore? I’m in love!

A cool way to send a photo postcard to anyone, fast!

Hope you had the best week ever!

BEST WEEK EVER!

(Not really the) Best Week Ever!

This week was (not really the) best week ever…May 29th- June 4th, 2017

IMG_0594

Not gonna lie, this was a tough week. I lost a really important flash drive, we had to bring Dash to the E.R. (insert incredibly sad, nervous, scared, anoxious emoji here), I got VERY little sleep, and I have pink eye. But in the spirit of riding a silver lining and looking forward to the start of a better week tomorrow- here’s some of the good stuff that happened 🙂

Sailor loves tamales!

IMG_0595

I went on a beautiful hike one day after the rain and saw this very cool sunken garden.

…And we thought we had lost Foofa- but we didn’t!

Plus…

Why you should write more letters guys!

Hiking the entire A.T. !

Steve had these for the first time and he dubbed them Nature’s candy.

I think these are nature’s candy!

And…

Flaunt your love.

 

 

 

BEST WEEK EVER!

Best Week Ever!

This week was the best week ever! May 22-28, 2017! I got a new phone, had pizza for dinner twice, drank way too much Coke zero, and most importantly, my parents came back up north for the summer!

IMG_0365

This kid learned how to shuck corn.

IMG_0364

This girl is so close to walking she can taste it! (but please don’t start climbing stairs yet!)
IMG_0359

And speaking of taste… she’s still the BEST eater around!

IMG_0363

This kid can’t get enough of slides and playgrounds…

This show is back and I’m so excited (tongue in cheek excited, but still excited to watch ha!) (Food Network Star)

Martha Stewart & Snoop Dogg have a potluck dinner party tv show! – this is them making brownies!

I’m totally making this (freaking awesome) toast.

How it feels to be getting older– I love that young guys in movies are no longer love interests, I see them as my sons! ha!

This avocado dress!

And, in honor of Mama’s Day, the first time you really appreciate your own parents– and God, how much I appreciate my own parents, now that I have my own children, blows my mind.
