Today is so pretty out! I’m definitely busting out the shorts after a short winter hiatus. I used to think southern California was a shorts all year kind of place. I think for the most part, it can be. My salty east coast self would grumble from under my parka, “They don’t know cold.” But, after living here for almost a year, I have to say, this winter was a bit chilly!!
I’ve been craving Mexican food hard lately. Whether it’s nachos or quesadillas, I’ve been craving that spicy, cheesy goodness. I don’t know what it is, but at least once a week I’m reaching for those Mexican-inspired flavors.
I don’t mean to sound too much like Jerry Seinfeld, but what’s the deal with mattress pads?! We’ve been sleeping on the worst mattress ever for… um 10 years. What’s so bad about it, you ask? We hacked it from a condo my mom sold and the new owners didn’t want it so obviously the poor college students would take it. At 20, I didn’t think twice about it. But now, as an adult, I’m pretty sure this is in the top 5 grossest things I’ve ever done.
Ok, so in my travels I found this subscription box called Mommy Mailbox. Basically they send you a box every month that is curated by a fellow mom and it contains adorable, useful, and delicious goodies. The fun part is, you get happy mail, and you never know what it will be. A few months back I got a three month subscription to give it a go. Well…
This weekend was so beautiful! We had the little man’s third birthday party and he loved every second. It was a fun chaos with all his little buddies running around. And Sunday was so gorgeous! We got the kids down for a nap and Jaryd and I went out on the back deck to have the most amazing salad (recipe coming soon) and some beers. It was kind of perfect and exactly what we needed to recharge.
