nanny life lately

Happy almost Friday friends! Life lately has been consumed by chasing a two year old wild man with his newborn bro strapped to me in the Pacific Palisades, extracting play-doh from my finger nails, bubbles and poor little B’s snotty nose in Brentwood, and tutus, princesses upon princesses and ballet class with the twins in Santa Monica. These kids fill my days and crack me up. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. In the midst of my nannyhood bliss I also sold my car- yay! Hope to post about the new one soon…once I find it : ) This weekend I will (fingers crossed!) be in Portland visiting Sis and T and seeing their new place! It’s going to be a strange shift of gears to step on the plane at LAX in Havaianas and a tank, and arrive at PDX in Hunter wellies and layered sweaters…welcome to Portland! I’ll be sure to snap plenty of pics and hopefully a few outfit photos as well.









turning the weekend around

To say this weekend didn’t go as planned would be quite the understatement. After spending four hours sitting in the United terminal at LAX, watching the second and final flight to San Francisco take off without me, I had nothing left to do but accept defeat and head home. In hindsight, my plan to try to fly standby on the Friday night of Easter weekend, had more than a few flaws. Needless to say, I never made it to my best friend’s wedding dress shopping, or Easter Sunday with my family. J’s family was also out of town so it ended up being a quiet weekend with my man and my pup. The weather cooperated Saturday and we were out and about all day enjoying the sun. We had lunch in Brentwood and later walked around Beverly Hills and Rodeo Dr. All in all it ended up being a lovely, relaxing weekend. I drowned my guilt and disappointment in Susie Cakes celebration cake (if you haven’t had it, it’s life changing) then curled up Sunday night with popcorn and the Game of Thrones season premiere! Another life changer if you’re a GOT viewer can be found here. Here are a few snapshots I took throughout. Happy belated Easter to those who celebrated 🙂
