saint patrick's day & a baby leprechaun with a mohawk.

feeling pretty lucky spending time with my 2 irish boys on this beautiful day. i got to start my day of just right working out at the gym in a pilates class then cardio, and come straight home to a refreshing shower allll by myself. no baby to entertain hah. husband greeted me with lunch and a delirious baby who was ready for a nap. so during his 2 hour nap mama got the chance to blog, rest, do laundry, get ready for date night...all good. 

our little saint patrick's celebration included some swing time at the park, thai dinner, and of course yogurt at yogurt-land. i clearly had some yogurt with my cookie dough (thanks husband who knows me so well). also, the green spoons were very appropriate.  ;)

h a p p y   s a i n t   p a t r i c k' s  d a y to all you irish and (non-irish) folks!!


on a sunday.

remember when i mentioned how sundays are best when reserved for visiting with family? well here we are again, only this time with the other side of my grandparents.

this Sunday was perfect, just like the previous one where i visited my grandma with my mom and got some treats on the way home like mexican bread and a pretty pink sunset. this time i met my dad for lunch at camille's sidewalk cafe. i spent my morning with my little one preparing for our outing with our usual routine if we plan to be away most of the day... nursing, playtime, diaper changes, breakfast time in the highchair eating some pears and mango, getting dressed, packing diaper bag, some more nursing and playtime...you get the jist. as soon as we hoped in the car on our way into town to meet my dad jacebear fell asleep for his first nap of the day. perfect timing! we got to eat our thai wraps hands free of busy body baby and chat, something i can always do with my dad. he's that one person in my life i feel like i can tell anything to, and know he'll always be there for me. 

after we headed over to santa paula, where my grandparents live. my dad is so sweet and always either brings them lunch or a treat. this time he brought them some mocha frapps! spoiling the grandparents i tell ya. so there we all sat around the table sipping our drinks (me, iced coffee of course) catching up on what's new in life. after awhile we took the party over to the living room where jace got to scoot around and show off his newest of moves on the cleanest hardwood floors of all the land. no really, how clean and simple they keep there home is a DREAM to me. and watching how jacebear lit up my grandma's and grandpa's eyes was just so darn great.

after we said our goodbyes with hugs and kisses, little man went down for his second nap during which we stopped to fill up the tank and get my eyebrows weaved for freeee! thanks to a little birdie, (my sister) gave me a heads up that this new salon in town had a special for free eyebrow weaving, something i've never had done before. i always went the waxing route but let me tell you that is no more! weaving was quick, pretty painless, and easyshmeasy. 

and because my dad is awesome he took jace for a walk in his limo stroller (that's what we call it compared to his old one because it is just ohhh sooo smooooth) while i did this lauren conrad workout in the garage since jumping doesn't go down so well when you're on the 3rd story of your building. do that workout with 3 minutes of jump roping in between each segment for a 40 minute workout and i promise your buns will be a happy sore.


an afternoon spent in malibu.

we kicked off our saturday afternoon with two toasty bagel sandwiches to go. fresh, handmade raisin bagel stuffed with eggs, turkey, avocado, tomato, melted jack cheese... sprinkle some pepper and ohmygoodnesssogood. i always get a coffee to go and like to mix the flavors, yum! so with our bagels in tow we hit the road to spend our day in malibu.

we had fun bringing our jogging stroller for a little hike along the trails (because i forgot the carrier) but didn't get very far so after we headed out to the beach which was already packed with people. spring, here we come!


on a sunday, to great-grandmother's house we go!

sunday's are usually when we visit with family and often take jace to see his great-grandparents. these are my favorite kinda days because i get to see my little one make my grandparents laugh and smile! it's too cute. on this particular sunday we went to my grandmother's, mama consu's casa, where we cooked, cleaned, and chatted with the fam. my mom and i came from church (jace's first time!) and oh my goodness he was so good! such a little gentleman.
this past week my poor little babe had a bad case of roseola so he had a high fever and a rash that looked much worse than it really was but whew, i'm glad that is over! he's feeling much better now and is already back to his normal self.

happy sunday folks!
