Today I… Finally caught up on some rest! My life felt like a whirlwind these past 2 weeks. I randomly started teaching again which really couldn’t have come at a better time (yay, for saving money for a house!), but it’s been tough transitioning from being a stay-at-home mom for a year to a working mom. All you working moms out there.. I give you PROPS. So, I pretty much cried the first 3 days.. But getting used to the routine now. Here’s some pictures from the last couple weeks:
1) My classroom
Btw, teaching kinder is no joke! These kids have had 3 different teachers throughout the year so no sense of structure. It’s been rough, but amazing how comfortable they become with you.
2) Completed a seating chart for a good friend of mine
3) Witnessed 2 of my friends get married
I didn’t get a final picture of the seating chart (still hitting myself for that one), but found this pic on my friends Instagram! So proud of it. Congrats Mike and Arle once again!!
4) Party prepping was super fun, but exhausting!
More pics of my daughters first birthday to come! Honestly, I love party planning. I wish it could be my full time job!
5) Watched my husband’s softball team win the championship! (2 in a row baby!)
Today I… Have been working on some projects! Man oh man, I can’t wait to share them with you!!! I’ve been in crafting mode as of the past couple months. I don’t know what came over me, but I’ve been feeling very inspired… Especially around 10! That has been my time to shine!!
I haven’t been able to sleep before 2am… Which is crazy when you have a child who wakes you up at 6am sometimes.
Anyhow… Spring is here and I’ve been in a very happy mode.
Cheers ya’ll! Happy Friday!! (And I’m not just saying that bc I’m slightly buzzed right now.)
Today I.. Attended a bridal shower for my BFF and the theme was “Sparkle Fete!” I was a little hesitant about the theme at first.. But it was so fun!
So this party was so fabulous! First of all, my BFF has a beautiful house in Irvine that looks like something out of Pinterest.. Especially her kitchen! (Swoon!) Anyway.. I think even though the theme was awesome.. It was all about the food!! All individually prepared and home cooked by her friend Jina. She did our wedding shower awhile back. She needs to start a business!
What I realized at that party was that party planning has evolved soo much bc of Pinterest and the Internet and the DIY/Michaels industry. We spend a lot of time ( probably more time than we need to) planning and making things for events and parties (I am guilty of this!)… that we sometimes lose ourselves in all the details. Remember back in the day when it was all about the food.. And MAYBE if you were feeling extra inspired you would go to your local party city and buy the matching utensils, plastics are, some random wall decor or centerpiece and call it a day! Good bye to those days!! But.. I can’t help myself. I love decorations!! They are just so fun and add so much to the party. The important thing is balance though. Hopefully I can keep myself grounded when it comes to planning my daughter’s 1st birthday. Hehe. But if not, don’t judge me! Lol.
Seriously, can’t wait until Italy for this girl’s wedding!!
Today I… Couldn’t help but share some photos from a hike we did up in SF this past weekend. So gorgeous!! The trail we went on was called Lands Ends in the presidio area. At first it was a little foggy, but then.. It was as if the heavens opened up and a beam of sunshine pointed down on us and we all sang, “Aahhhhh!!” Just kidding, but it really became the perfect weather.
Baby girl did so well in the hike too!!
Can you see how the weather improved throughout the hike?? It was so beautiful! Ugh.. I want to go back now.
Today I… Thought I’d share little tidbits of our weekend happenings in the lovely city of SF. First of all.. So much fun and chill… All we did was hang out with our cool and aca-awesome friend Ryan! 😉 (We made him watch Pitch Perfect too. Hehe)
Happy Birthday again Ryan!! We love you so much!
We did do some hiking, a lot of playing in the cool parks and jungle gyms, eating everything and anything bc that’s what we do best, and walking/exploring the city.
Oh! We also were able to meet up with some friends (who just became newlyweds.. yay! congrats!) for brunch before we headed to the airport! Thanks Steph and Chris!!
