Where Have I Been?

September 3, 2016 8 Comments

I totally disappeared and I’m sorry for that. My laptop died, a sad sad death. Well, the hard drive did. I haven’t been able to get it up and working, so I’m trying to post from an ancient desktop, that I fixed up.

We’ve had a pretty busy summer. The last summer before Birdie started school. She is in kindergarten now! It’s been quite a change. Tot doesn’t quite know what to do without his sister. He’s always asking for her and looking for her. We are two weeks in now, and she’s enjoying it.


We drove the coast and went whale watching. We didn’t see a single way and had a mediocre lunch, but it was a lot of fun.

My father got into an accident at work, so he’s out of work for now. We’ve been taking him to doctors appointments and physical therapy appointments. We’ve been keeping him busy and he loves hanging out with the grandchildren.

Birdie was in soccer, ballet and tap. We’ve been keeping her busy all summer long. She loves it. I love that she loves it. I miss dancing.


Disneyland has been our go to place. I love it. I never want to leave. Sometimes we visit Christina of Road to Parenthood. Sometimes we meet up with A when he’s off of work and do a whole week. We even did a road trip to Las Vegas for part of it. He even proposed. It was a magical weekend.

So now I’m back and I have some reviews that will be posted!

  • I volunteered in my daughter’s classroom for Thanksgiving. I helped on the food line so I had to tie Dumpling to my back and make turkey sandwiches. We do teach the kids that we don’t actually celebrate Thanksgiving, and the teachers discussed the truth with the kids. I’m glad I didn’t have to step in like previous years 🤦🏽‍♀️⁣

My tote bag from @shopkindredtogether is my favorite though. I’m able to fit everything in there. A quick link to the shop is in my profile & you can use code APRILOCT to save 💰 ⁣

  • We were so lucky to be able to check out the Flip & Spin for the Win bundle - thanks to @PowerYourFun. The bundle included Laser Launchers (which I can’t pry out of Tot’s hands), the Mini Cyclone Stunt Car, and Turbo Tops Gyro Cars - which you see pictured here. These are our favorite part of the bundle, the kiddos are constantly try to do tricks with them. ⁣

  • Yesterday was my birthday! I’m thirty-something (the something is silent 🤪) and it was a good day. A made it back from a 10 day trip just in time to celebrate. The kids were so excited to make mom’s day fun. ⁣⁣

My sister always grabs a red velvet bundt cake for me and I love it. It’s my favorite. My grandmother used to bake me a red velvet cake every year when I was younger and it’s important to me to have it. ⁣

Here’s to another revolution around the sun ☀️
  • I posted about the awesome @pjmasks PJ Masks Seeker about a month ago. I grabbed it at @target and kept it hidden until it was Tot’s birthday. He had already completely forgotten about it & it was a wonderful surprise to open on his day 🎂 He’s been playing with it nonstop and his sisters keep trying to get a turn. ⁣

Thank you to MomSelect for gifting us this toy. It’s the perfect toy for this @pjmasks obsessed family. #ad⁣

  • My middle child. My wild child. He’s officially 5 years old and 1 day. I tried to make sure he had a fun filled day yesterday and now I’m exhausted. This year he decided he didn’t like cake and asked for donuts instead 🍩 ⁣

Happy birthday Tot 💕
  • We saved this Star Wars coding kit for Tot’s birthday and it was a hit! He was totally interested in putting it together and making things work. He’s my little tinker. ⁣

  • Pretending there are fall vibes with 90° weather 🍁🍂🎃⁣

We melted at the pumpkin patch this weekend. Now we are hiding from smoke and hoping our power doesn’t go out. ⁣

How’s your weekend treating you?
  • Prism Black went live today and I’m so excited for them to get their new homes. This kaleidoscope weave is so grippy and textured. It really locks those passes in tight. 🌈 💎⁣

  • Corn mazes are our favorite 🌽 We try to stop at one every year and grab some photos at the pumpkin patch. The kids love the corn pit. I love listening to them get along and discuss the corn maze map and answer the trivia so we know which way to go. Such a great adventure. ⁣
