4 Months – Side by Side


Five on Friday: End of Summer Edition



As summer starts to wind down – it means sneaking in one last trip to the lake, kids are headed back to school and our favorite TV shows are starting up again. As a teenager I always marked watching the VMAs as the end of summer and this year was no exception. Justin Timberlake’s performance was amazing – and I won’t even mention the other one that every other media outlet is talking about.


This kid loves going boating. We went again this week and he had a blast and played his little heart out on the beach. We went back to our cozy cove and got in the water to splash around and explore the shore line. There was a big party boat with a loud sound system in the cove and they were blasting music and this guy just started to bust out dancing. He cracks me up.

This is my new favorite mascara after I saw it listed on the The Small Things Blog. The brush is different than your usual one which at first I had to get used to, but overall I really like it and it does not clump like other brands.




This week my kid sister started her first year of college at my alma mater – CU Boulder. I stopped by earlier in the week to visit, see her dorm and do some fun dorm room shopping. It made me feel old walking waddling around campus again while 8.5 months pregnant. But I am really excited for her and I hope she takes this opportunity to explore, make mistakes and try new things. Because that’s what college is about.




Two words. Breaking Bad.




36 days left till I meet this little girl. She is the size of a cantaloupe this week. We are measuring right on track and she is head down – which means all of her limps are kicking me in the ribs.

Babymoon in San Francisco

In early June, we ventured out to San Francisco together for a vacation sans toddler for an extended weekend. The hubs was already there for the annual Apple Developers Conference.



Our cozy, comfy and cute hotel room. Or in other words – small hotel room but it was absolutely charming and right on Union Square which made it super convenient getting around town.



After dinner stroll along the pier.



FaceTime with my little buddy back home who I missed very much, but he was having a blast with his grandparents.


A ferry tour ride to the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz.




Don’t let the smile fool you, it was freezing that day at the Golden Gate Bridge. But it was cool to see the clouds & fog.




Bump and I in front of Chinatown.

It was a great trip, but we are also equally excited to come home and greet our little guy and wrap him up in our arms. We got home late Monday night, like 11pm, and upon coming inside and catching up with grandparents, the little guy woke up and I won’t forget the look on his face. He was absolutely shocked to see us and was soo happy and excited to see and touch mommy’s face, it about melted my heart. Then in true fashion, he asked to go back to bed – ha! Poor guy was tuckered out and was ready to sleep more. The next morning he was so excited to wake up and see us and he didn’t let me out of his sight for the rest of the week.
