i took a really long unintentional blogging break.
by now i’m sure youve assumed we’re back from hawaii! and we are! the trip was awesome- despite a certain baby getting sick and requiring a round of antibiotics after a trip to urgent care. yay! but she was better just in time for us to come home- and the trip was a memorable one for all of us!
we had a few days at home and then i was off again.
first up to dallas. because an amazing friend lost her dad and i knew i needed to be there. sara is one of those people who are genuinely sweet. she has the biggest and best heart and there is no way i couldnt be there for her. her dad was one amazing man, something we all knew– but really learned once he passed and his students had the nicest things to say. the world truly lost an amazing man.
and then! i got to head to the delicious city of san frandcisco with a friend– a trip ive been looking forward to for MONTHS. and not just because leslie and i make the perfect travel companions (eat! sleep! lululemon! hallmark movies! repeat!), but we also got to go on set for her brother’s show! i felt totally cool when we got to sit by screens with head sets on. . . but was knocked down a peg when one of the stars called me on out having mom hair (messy bun FTW). but you cant argue with the truth. we had the BEST trip. but coming home after being away from the girls for FIVE days was so so sweet.
while i was gone we started a little renovation project. we’re knocking down walls, getting a new kitchen, laundry room, breakfast “nook”, bathroom, and laundry room. To us it feels like a giant project– especially since we’ll be living without a kitchen for six months. I got home to find everything in total chaos. complete with no oven, microwave, or kitchen sink. I promise not to complain too much because we signed up for this! its going to be worth it! but i’d be lying if i didn’t say i’m terrified to live in the construction zone. i dont deal well with chaos. but the wonderful megan & dawn from E.INTERIORS are on the job. so i cant wait to see the finished product!
and now that i’m back we’re full into holiday mode! thanksgiving is THIS WEEK. we saw santa today (i’m a santa snob and will only go to the gumtree one. because natural light! professional photographer! and he’s the cutest santa!). i cant wait to get the REAL picture back. but there were no tears. so unless kenz delivers tears next year my hopes and dreams of a screaming santa picture will be dashed.
so you’re all caught up. probably more caught up than i am because far from having my sanity back. im not sure how the holidays get SO busy. but they do! and its all really fun things. but a LOT of really fun things. i really hope to back into the regular swing of things. . . like reading. commenting. and loving other peoples blogs. and maybe returning emails and text messages again. but its going to take me awhile to dig myself out of this hole.
