first day of 3rd grade

night before the first day of 3rd grade. 

She looks so cute and nervous! 

Buddy is at a new school this year. The walk is a little farther, the school seems a little darker. It's certainly bigger. 

 I wish summer could be a little longer. I wish I could put Buddy in my bag and bring her to work with me every day. 

I love her little body. She's so long. And brown. 

She had little text books on her desk. And a spiral notebook. Look at her little crooked smile. Okay now I'm crying.

Weekend Pics

This weekend was my favorite sort of weekend. Friday night we had fun and hung out with the family. Saturday, we cleaned and organized all day. Sunday, we went to San Diego and had righteous family time. Absolutely fabulous. Almost all these pics are my sister's. So thanks dude!

Friday night watching videos. 

The joze eating ice cream. 

Dabbing in the pool 

Gorgeous beach day!!!

I've read several books lately that I would recommend. Here they are in no particular order:

  1. The Goldfinch, by Donna Tartt - this book I loved. It was about a boy who loses his mother in a terrorist attack, and how he moves through life after. The characters were great, the places he lived were so descriptively written you feel like you know them, and of course NYC is one of the main characters of the book. I loved it. 
  2. Behold the Dreamers by Imbole Mbue - this book tells the store of Camaroonian immigrants to NYC in the early 2000s. It's a different NYC who stars in this book, but a familiar one nonetheless. The main character is a limo driver for a wall street exec. His wife is a student. They are working towards the America Dream when the economy collapses. It's a good time to read a story about immigration in America, so hit it.
  3. Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Bali Kuar Jaswal - I will be shocked if they don't make this into a movie. It was absolutely hilarious. It's a story about a punjabi girl living in England who isn't making much of her life, so answers an ad to teach a writing class at the local community center. It's all Punjabi widows who show up - and they start writing sexy romance stories. It'll definitely make you blush but it will more make you laugh. 
I'm currently devouring Educated, by Tara Westover,  a memoir about a woman who was born & raised by survivalists in Northen Idaho. She never set foot in a classroom, never saw a doctor, worked in a junkyard scrapping metal with her dad in horrific conditions. It's awful sometimes to ready but I do recommend it so far.

weekend pics + 1

Look who we got to see on Thursday evening! On her layover. It's so nice to live close to the airport. 

Chargers preseason game. 

Super fun. 

I got one of those things for the back of my phone that helps you take better selfies. 

So here's some selfies. 

Still learning how to french braid. 

It was a fun weekend full of family and food and happiness.
