Sometimes I can't believe I used to be anti-smart phone. I'm not a crazed social networker but I would be sad if I couldn't take the bazillion photos a day I do now. Lately my instagram reflects my life much more accurately than my blog so I decided to update via insta. I could even title this post "things I love" because I have really hit the jackpot with my recent findings. 

Lazy weekend afternoons on the couch are a favorite.

We like to try new breakfast spots. Our opinion is largely based on the coffee quality. Daily Grill was a winner.

Easy project: switch out old dresser knobs for new ones. For me, its a great way to add color to my overall neutral theme.

Out with the shag, in with this herringbone rug from urban. 

Bath & Body Works candle "island caribbean" perfect for summer.

Our apartment just opened this amazing frozen yogurt shop, to die for. 

It's healthy if there is fruit in it right?

As promised, a yoga picture. Andrews favorite poses? corpse and child's pose ;) I'm kind of a pose monitor. I get really nervous when he tries to do handstands and make him stop. 

Organization is a great way to get motivated for school

 I don't know about you but I take perfume shopping very seriously. By seriously I mean cautiously. Sometimes I even have to sleep on a decision to be sure. Maybe its because I have buyers remorse or maybe its because I am paranoid that I will be that person with the awful perfume. With that said, I loveeee this Philosophy perfume.

After our Disney adventure we spent time with Andrew's grandparents in Arizona. I loved this time. Surprisingly enough we didn't play a single game. Its practically part our religion to play Mexican Train whenever we all get together. Instead we talked a lot, listened to stories, laughed, enjoyed apple pie and delicious home cooked meals. Most of all we watched Elliott and admired all his cuteness.

Hil-ar. Anything to see that baby smile. 

And its so worth it! If you haven't noticed, he is SUCH a happy baby. 


I finally had a moment to play with all the photos we took a few weeks ago at Disneyland. It was more than a year since we were all together last and it was the first time meeting our cute nephew. We love that little cuddlebug!

A couple weeks ago we had a family reunion-like vacation at Disneyland for 3 days. There were thousands of photos between everyones cameras, but for now this will have to do.

No extra parts

Remember a long time ago when I mentioned Andrew wanted a bike? I told him no way jose at first because we were in school and it would take up too much time, but now that its summer I caved. I am usually the creative one with 3 projects going on at once so its kind of neat to see him having fun with his own project. 

 He already switched out some of the metal stuff (you know, the parts) and he just finished repainting. He did all of that and didn't have any extra parts, thats always a good thing. 

Sans blue flames. 

I think he's super cute and I love that I got a sparkly helmet and new sander out of this.
