Things are getting crazy around these parts!
Between a dinner with friends, a wedding shower, an impromptu visit with my cousin and a few photo shoots, it’s been busy!
I got to snuggle this little 1 month old last week! She passed out in my arms. And then I got super warm from her body heat!
I helped put on a little shower for a friend getting married in August. I was also pretty impressed with what you can do with black craft paper and chalkboard pens.
My cousin came to town, so Nick and I headed to the city for a little ferry building brunch – blue bottle coffee and some random snacks.
And then I spent a couple hours with one of my favorite dancers.
After looking at all of her gorgeous pictures, I proceeded to attempt my *best* arabesque in the living room mirror. I was highly disappointed – need to manage my expectations a bit
Last Thursday was family night at the Livermore Rodeo, yes, we live in a cowboy town. Family night = free, so we go on family night. In addition to roping cattle, they also have magic carpet rides – where someone rides on a carpet getting pulled by a horse, and wild cow milking – where they lasso a cow and then someone comes and gets the cow in a head lock while the other one milks it – no joke. The evening was capped off by a performance from a pink, glittery, horse-riding, drill team! You literally cannot make this stuff up.
Friday night we helped some friends break in their new fire pit.
The original plan was to try something we’d seen online. Where you make a toasted marshmallow “shot glass” and fill it with kahlua. It sounded awesome. But in reality, the kahlua to mallow ratio was too high, and the alcohol ate through the bottom of the mallow – so it got a little messy. Instead, I filled mine with nutella. Now THAT was amazing.
And today I’m off to England for the week. A quick-ish work trip followed by the busiest weekend of my life (no joke). I’ve refrained from caffeine for most of my life, always figuring there would come a day when I’d need to channel its powers. And I’m pretty sure this weekend will be the one. Jet lag + relay for life + 2 weddings + tickets to a show. Oopsy! If a candle had 3 ends, I’d be burning all of them. Wish me luck and happy Monday!
