We live in Washington now!

Friday, July 15, 2016

If you follow us on other forms of social media you know that we have moved from California to Washington! We are so excited about this move. California was super rough for our family. We are excited to be in Washington and work on forming some roots here! 


I have hopes to catch up this ol' blog but my computer is hanging on by a thread and replacing it isn't anywhere near top priority for us right now. I'm still pretty active on Instagram though if you want to keep up with what we are up to these days!

Disneyland!

Sunday, April 24, 2016

In March, my family came down and my Dad took us all to Disneyland! 
It was a bit crowded due to spring break but it was such a fun day! 

Sleeping Beauty's Castle...



Riding Dumbo...



He loves taking selfies with me :)


We to the Blue Bayou for dinner which is my favorite! I have such fun memories of eating there as a kid! The food was yummy and you just can't beat the ambiance!

 Splash Mountain! My favorite! Obviously not Claire's favorite! Haha

We went on lots of rides and had so much fun but I don't have pictures of all of that! One highlight that I don't want to forget is riding the Matterhorn. It is a single seat ride which meant that Claire had to ride by herself... She doesn't like rides so we weren't sure how she would do and my Mom was scared that Claire would get scared and try to turn around in her seat and get to us. I rode in the front, Claire rode in the middle, and Brian rode in the back and put his hands on Claire's shoulders. Much to our surprise Claire LOVED the Matterhorn ride! She wanted to go on it again but we couldn't because the line was very long! She tells everyone that it is her favorite ride! I was so proud of how brave she was!

Minnie's kitchen...

Our Pluto...

Mickey!

I just have to post this inappropriate picture because it makes me laugh so so much!



Mickey Ice Cream!




Kenley's ice cream dropped on the ground and she was heart broken. Sweet Claire came to the rescue and gave Kenley hers. I love witnessing sweet sister moments like that!
Goodnight Disneyland!

The Beginning of March

 Bethy's finished purse and a little gnome baby for her...

In March we started our Herb Fairies Book Club beginning with Stellaria the Chickweed Fairy...

Homemade Peanut Butter...

We found a nursery near our house that is so peaceful and has nice big trees. It's dreamy! 

The girls new nightlight. Its a spider plant with a strand of battery operated fairy lights... 

Nova Vitamins mail drop off...

Succulent propagation!

Watercolor...

We rearranged the playroom...

Since we can't find chickweed here in CA we tried growing some ourselves but unfortunately it didn't take :( 




The laundry situation was driving me nuts so I went on a reorganizing spree and put the girls dresser and all of their clothes in our master closet... So far it's working pretty well as long as there is an empty laundry basket for the girls to put their clothes in when they change. This system makes it so much easier for me to put their clothes away! 

Donuts after church... We found a new church and we really like it! We are super excited to get plugged in! 

A sweet couple from church invited us over for dinner. When she introduced herself to us she said "My name is Becky but I prefer Grandma". They have just adopted us and are now the girls California grandparents :) They have been such a blessing to us!

 Beeswax heart candles for Valentine's...

Matching dresses...

This picture isn't great but mid January I started doing Trim Healthy Mama with my friend Emma. I am still loving it and so far I am down 11 pounds! This pizza crust recipe is AMAZING... YOU MUST TRY IT!!! Even if you aren't on THM! It's so good!


We started making a purse for Bethy on Claire's loom...

Kenley got to stay up late one night and learn to play Castles of Burgundy...

 I made little mint tin my little pony play things for the girls church bags...


We finally hung pictures on our walls! I still need to order pictures for those frames though! Oops! 

Some gems I found on my phone...



The weather warmed up and we were able to start enjoying regular park days again! 


On Valentine's Day Eve, We had a little tattoo party...

And then we made some Valentines cookies...

 While we were making cookies I was face timing with Amanda and in walked Brian with Barbara and then Amanda told me she was on her way to come see me too! 

What an amazing birthday surprise! Brian had flown two of my best friends in town for 4 days!! It was awesome!

 After church we headed to Palm Desert to see Aunt Kris and my cousin Nicole who was in town too!








Mexican for my Birthday dinner! 



Amanda, Barbara, and I stayed to watch Karaoke... Lets just say it was a Monday night in a small town... hahaha. This old man came over to sing to us multiple times and it was so so so funny!

The next day we explored Old Town Temecula... 

This Short Rib Melt  at Devilicious was so good! 

 The next day we went to IKEA and then we had to take Barbara and Amanda back to the airport. The girls were so sad and I was too!

 Auntie Tonia and Uncle Travis came to town!

This picture is proof of when my current plant obsession began... It started out harmlessly with a few herbs from Trader Joes and has quickly grown! 

Kenley lost tooth #6! 

The next night she lost tooth #7! 

The Tooth Fairy got a little lost the night before so Kenley made sure to put a sign on our front door so she would know to come here :) "There's Teeth Here!"


The littlest NovaVitamins employee hard at work packing up vitamins ;)

They heard a noise outside...

We finished Bethy's purse! 


I met my goat boyfriend at the Zoo :) 

The girls touched a snake...



Starbucks date! 


The plants multiplied rapidly...  All on their own ;)
