Weekend 1Weekend 3

{Phew….we made it! Ky was out of town for part of last week and Saturday and Little M and I made it! To all you ladies who’s husbands travel for work, my hat is totally off to you. {See me tipping my hat here} Adding a few extra hours a day where my energy level needs to be at level bubbly and entertaining is, well, exhausting. I was so tired by Little M’s bed time that instead of the cleaning I intended to do, I ended up spending my evenings watching way too much Downton Abbey. I made it through the first two seasons. Do Not {I repeat DO NOT} tell me what happens in season 3 because right now I’m busy being so proud of Lady Mary for the first time since I started this bloody show. Lets not ruin that. But really, my days with Little M were great. We had play dates, dinner dates and lots of mom | baby dates to pass the time. We also had crazy mother nature to entertain us. Friday morning it was snowing and Saturday we were playing in the back yard in the sunshine. Whatever ‘spring’!}

{Ky made his triumphant return from Vegas on Sunday! I couldn’t believe it when he jumped right up when Little M woke in the morning. It was the longest he has ever been away from her and he must have missed his little peanut. We spent our day back together doing such suburban things. We went out for lunch, stopped by an appliance store {IF only I could explain how much I hate, hate, hate my oven. Plastic knobs are just not a wise idea on something that heats up. Who in the world thought of this?} and grocery shopped because we are turning over a new ‘healthy eating’ leaf that will probably last about 10 more minutes before I find a girl scout to sell me a box of Thin Mints. But, the highlight of the day was meeting a very new baby. Baby Bryce was just 5 days old when we went to bug him and his parents. We came bearing freshly baked cookies {I may have known that this ‘healthy leaf’ was right around the corner so I just may have eaten a few dozen bites of cookie dough} and snuggled little Bryce as much as he would let us. It was so great to smell a new baby, listen to his little noises and bounce him when he was a little fussy. It was also so so crazy to see where Little M was only 10 months ago. In that time, she has learned to sit up, stand, cruise around, babble away, smile and be the little girl that completes our suburban family life! And for those who are going to ask, no this did not make me want another baby yet. But, it did make me want to visit Little Bryce’s parent’s as much as they will let me! A huge Congrats to them!}

Enjoy! Melissa

Fri 1

{On Friday, Little M and I were out and about when we ran into a L&L . It’s like Hawaiian fast food but really, I just couldn’t resist. I ordered some greasy goodness and saved the amazing mac salad for my hubby. Score for everyone!}



{We had a pretty low key weekend around our house but full of some good ol’ family fun. Saturday started out with the most adorable book reading and then some lunching with Little M’s aunties {aka my best friends}. We ate pizza and salad, blabbed our life updates and laughed at Little M gobbling up ‘cookies’ like a monster. We even got a little shopping in after. Successful Sat if you ask me! Side Note; M is pictured above with Lindsay of My Ties and Piper Teal. She’s my awesomely talented and creative friend. Check out her shops!}



{Sun was one of the best family days we have been lucky enough to have in a long time. We spent the day at a local Farmers Market. We wandered through the booths, bought a huge bouquet for $5, enjoyed the sun shining on us and I found the cutest little fabric store. More on this outing later! We had so much fun it deserves it’s own post! Oh and little M turned 10 months old! I just can’t even believe she’s 10 months already. Time seems to fly and, some days, drag all at the same time. Guess it’s time to start planning the big first birthday!}

Enjoy! Melissa

{On Friday, I wore denim with denim. Is this acceptable? Or only for people who actually farm? Still unsure but, I wore it anyway.}

{We went out to burgers on Fri night. Everyone has been telling me the The Ranch has the best burgers. I didn’t believe them. Now I do. Little M was not impressed with how I wolfed down my burger in the time she finished her teething biscuit. It was like she was saying, “Wow, get it together Mama.”}

{Spring showed it’s beautiful beautiful face on Saturday and Saturday only. While I showered a new mama, Little M and Ky went for a sunny walk. M managed to have a blow out and Ky couldn’t find the spare pants in her bag. So, she rode for a bit with a blanket covering her bare legs while her pants dried off in the sun. Yet another reason to appreciate the warm weather. Impromptu laundry line on the stroller. Still, they had a blast together. I can’t help but love the way he loves her. It’s just so incredibly sweet.}

{And on Sunday, we paid tribute to my parents belongings that are in the middle of the Pacific now and heading towards their new home in Hawaii. We are sad to lose them but can’t wait for our many visits. Just think, M will learn to play in the sand, surf and appreciate the beautiful smell of the islands. Watch out Hawaii, here come my parents (well, just their stuff for now)!}

Enjoy! Melissa
