Monday Musings, late late Monday Musings...

Well, hello new friends. I’m assuming tumblr featured us or something again in their side bar (and I was completely clueless about it till today) because as of Saturday there’s a LOT more of you. Thanks tumblr as always, you’re pretty cool. 

How was your Monday? We’re currently up at almost midnight waiting for G to get home from a baseball game with friends (yes you read that right our four year old is out past midnight). We got pretty distracted with some wine, cheese, gelato, and indulging in the pleasure of another date night. We spent a bit of time wandering around LA in the cool evening air daydreaming about what’s next for our family. We’re getting spoiled with these date nights lately.

Bathroom date selfies for the win. Blurry, always blurry.

How was your weekend? We were crazy busy. Saturday G had her going away party. It was probably the most chill event I’ve ever been involved in throwing. Granted my wonderful friend Zane took over everything I’m not so keen on doing (decorations, general planning) and left me with the singular responsibility of food so I can’t take too much of the credit.

The miracle worker and her husband…meanwhile I spent most of the event like this:

(aka goofing off)

Proper actual camera shots to come soon in a proper post about the event. For now iphone dumping it is.

We let G invite a bunch of her friends over after the party for a final sleep over. We ended up with 5 little girls under 5. It was busy in the loft that evening to say the least! I’m proud to report I “super mom’d” it through the evening. Fed and happy we all took to watching Aladdin which I think I may have enjoyed more than the kids (who else LOVED that movie when they were a child?!). I managed to get all five of them asleep by 10pm, in the same bed may I mention. Bam! Super mom.

We’ve been packing the loft up like a mad woman lately. Giving away things left and right to friends. We’re really proud of G she’s doing an incredible job of dealing with me selling things we can’t take to the UK like her stroller and car seat. She’s calmed down a bit this last week about the transition which has been making the house much more peaceful also which feels great. 

There’s a bit in the pipeline as of posts this week. I’ve got a bit about my new almost all natural hair and skin routine since I’ve joined the “no poo” parade. Plus some sweet posts about DTLA before we blast out of here.

Before then I would like to invite you to friend me on Instagram (can we talk about how I just miss typed that first time as “Instagasm” haha…is that a thing?!). My lovely and always inspiring friend Vienda Maria has asked me to join her in a 10 day instagram challenge about “freedom”. I’ve never done an insta challenge so I’m kinda excited. Find me over there HERE
