Homemade things

So, Babe made fun of my makeup bag, which was basically the free bag I received from Little Company of Mary for a having a baby at their hospital. So, I asked my Ma to make me one. And she did! Here it is. You can't tell from this picture but it's all lined on the inside so you don't get it messy if your makeup is messy. Wow good story, huh? 

Buddy went to a beeday party yesterday that was like a pint and sip but without the booze. The children all painted a unicorn, and this one is Buddy's. 

She came right home and put it on the wall!

Weekend Pics

We chilled so hard this weekend. And then Sunday had friends over and played. It was a wonderful weekend.

I like Babe's hat. 

My family! I wasn't with them but they took this great pic so I am sharing it with you. 

I though Buddy looked like a little creep in this picture. 

She helped me by making the fruit salad for our friends.

Mid Summer Numbers

People keep accusing the summer of being almost over and I don't blame them. But, I haven't been on vacation yet so I also don't agree. We are only 2/3 of the way through!

My child starts school on August 28th, so I feel like we have a good solid month left. Then, she'll be in 3rd grade!

So far, this summer is way better than last summer. For one thing, I don't have cancer. For another, tomorrow is my one year anniversary of me going under for a massive 7 hour surgery. So, I don't have to do that again.

I also sat on my butt for the entire month of August, the full thirty days, and I don't have to do that, either. Thumbs way up!

This summer, we've gone to the beach about half a dozen times, which is 6 times more than last summer. We've been to my parent's pool and house at least three times. To my sister's house at least twice. It's been righteous.

Buddy has no more camp, is just chilling. My work is still busy but I guess that is how it is going to be all the time so whatever. We've been eating outside a lot. I am hoping to take off a few days in August outside of vacation to take her school shopping, to go to Disneyland, to hang out in 100 degree weather.

In August, it will be 5 years that we have lived in our little house in Hawthorne. It's magical! It's been 7 years since I moved from NYC.

And that's all she wrote!

Weekend Pics

We had a good old weekend in San Diego! We missed our Big Cheese, but we celebrated Ori's beeday with cheese, some pool time, and lots of running around. 

My favorite pic from the weekend. 

Okay, this one is. 

Checked out a new spot.

And met this guy.

I lost a day, folks. Yesterday I titled my blog #TBTuesday, but it was actually Wednesday. Right? Yesterday was Wednesday? Because today is Thursday. Oh man. Time flies when you are having fun.

Speaking of time flying, this came up in Facebook Memories and it reminds me of so many things. That purple sandbox that Cin gave us for Buddy's 2nd birthday. There was purple sand EVERYWHERE. But mostly it makes me laugh because the dynamic between these two besties is pretty much exactly the same man. I love this picture.

My shutterfly account emailed me this picture from six years ago of Buddy in the pool, but it cant be buddy, because she was only 2 years old. It's Nava! 

And here's Buddy at 2 years old. 

And Ori at one.

And I love it. 

She looks like a mermaid. 

These two are partners in crime.

This was our best staycation so far. As you can see, we had a wonderful time with our little family. There were playdates, and bbqs, and fireworks and many trips to the beach, and a trip to San Diego, and date nights, and lots of naps. It was refreshing and invigorating and I loved it.
