Mountain Music Festival

There are a few shows Kyle plays that I really love!
And the Mountain Music Festival is definitely one of them.

It's in Oak Glen at this amazing park, where you're surrounded by seniors and kids. Which in my world, is an excellent combination.

And there is something so awesome about being outdoors listening to blue grass and watching people take it easy, laying on their blankets with their shoes off.

It's a pretty sight.

Cocktails (Photo Overload)

After we got back from our weekend in Palm Springs, I really wanted to have all our friends over for a retro cocktail party.

We've never had a "big kid party" at our house...
and it's way over due.
Plus it gave me an excuse to pull out all my pyrex :) 
And to dress up.  
For the drinks, we decided on making just one kind of cocktail, which was the one we had in Palm Springs called the Orbitini.

Here is how you make it:

2 shots of Sake
3/4 cup of cranberry juice
1/2 cup of orange juice

Serve over ice with an orange wedge!

(It's delicious)

We all had such a fun night!

Sprinkled with Love

Over the weekend, my friend Kelly and I put on a little "baby sprinkle" for our sweet friend Amber, who is having her 2nd baby.

It was simple and so sweet.
And we were so happy to do it for her.
We love her, and she means the world to us.

The boys live outside.

They’d be out there all day all night, if I let them…
And nothing is better to them then riding their bikes.
…except Lucas.

Who until recently only had a plastic ride on push cart as his mode of transportation. Poor kid.

He would try hoping on his brothers bikes every chance he could... once they were laying on the ground at his level.

So when I saw this Radio Flyer bike at the thrift store, I couldn’t pass it up.
He hasn’t gotten the hang of it yet, but I can tell he really loves it.

Weekend in Rewind


We had a really good weekend over here in our neck of the woods.
Kyle did yard work and officially made our backyard, a yard.
Grass and all.
It looks lovely.

Nothing screams sexy then watching your man do yard work, let me tell you!
(to much information?... perhaps)

I woke up Saturday feeling so happy to be laying in bed with my boys with the sun shining thru my window.
Weekends really have been cherished lately.

We did venture out of our cave for a birthday party,
where Lucas ended up spraining his ankle on the world's biggest bouce house.
He shot out the bottom like a rocket...landing in a downward dog, rolling his ankle.
And nothing is sadder than seeing a baby with a limp.
But feels so much better now, thankfully.

We also had friends over for dinner,
which was so great and so very grown up of us.
We're slow learners, what can I say!

Ever since I started working, juggling it all has been a real challenge for me.
I've actually never been great at juggling it all,
let's be honest.

So the time I actually get to spend with friends I really cherish.
And it makes me realize we need to have people over more often.
So we decided to make it a recurring event.

So keep your eye out for a dinner invite :)
