Girl’s Weekend…Errr Actually Jill’s Weekend

This weekend was the #2ndgirlsweekendpalmsprings (longest hashtag ever…we couldn’t figure our shit out), and it was simply the best!

Abby was having a really good time ūüėČ ¬†I laughed so hard¬†this weekend, if I had slightly worse bladder control, I would have peed myself multiple¬†times.

Jill has been such a good friend, and when I decided I wanted to post about this weekend it reminded me that I didn’t do a post on her visit back in October. ¬†My OCD just won’t allow that…

In October these two lovely ladies came to see me and it was everything!

We started our weekend off the right way….with donuts, and it’s safe to say that Ilee was happy!

Then Charlie needed a cuddle.

After Charlie was sufficiently cuddled we headed to the pool.

The next day we took the ladies down to the Los Rios Historic District of San Juan Capistrano.  One of my favorite areas!  When we first moved down here I spent so much time at Hidden House Coffee shop.

Ilee is sooooo adorable!

Dave and I got such a kick out of her.

Then it was time for the beach. ¬†I think Dave really loves taking friends and family to San Onofre because it means so much to him. ¬†It’s where his dad taught him to surf, and he has so many fond memories.

I love surf culture, I haven’t met a mean surfer.

Ilee fell asleep before we even got there, look at this little bean!

Jill and I jumped in to boogie board while Dave watched over a sleeping Ilee.

When she woke up we took advantage of her excitement and had ourselves a pretty good time.

Alright, maybe I was the one who was extremely excited (if you couldn’t tell by that face)!

Such a good time at the beach with a few of my favorites! ¬†I’m so glad I’ve gotten to share so many special moments at this beach with Dave and friends!

The next day was their last day ūüė¶ but we were able to grab brunch and walk around Newport Beach before they headed out. ¬†When we were about to leave I caught Dave and Ilee swapping stories….pretty adorable!

I love these girls, and I’m so glad that they came down to visit!!!! ¬†I can’t wait until the next visit (…Disneyland???)

Love you Jill & Ilee!

Be well.

 

 

Labor Day Weekend

Hope everyone had a great labor day weekend!!!  We had a lot of fun seeing family, friends, and some unexpected wildlife!

I definitely prefer to plan my weekends, but this time around Dave was adamant that we keep things low key and make very few plans….so we ended up doing a whole bunch and made a ton of plans ;P ¬†It was glorious (don’t worry, Dave thought so too). ¬†Friday we headed up to grandmas to try and get Scooters situation under control, to no avail. ¬†We’ll be heading to the vet this Friday (my preference anyways, let the professionals help).

Saturday morning we woke up and did a great hill run that I found on cakes and carrot’s blog. ¬†It was very adaptable to the area around grandma’s since she lives at the top of a hill. ¬†After that we went to a friends place for a block party, it was very relaxed and fun. ¬† Sunday was definitely the low key day Dave was craving, we stayed home pretty much the entire day (save for a trip to get coffee, target, and softball practice). ¬†We did some netflixing, watched Birdman and Tig’s HBO special “Tig Notaro: Boyish Girl Interrupted,” both were amazing and I absolutely recommend them.

Monday turned out to be filled to the brim, but in the most excellent way! ¬†First stop, Portola Coffee Lab¬†the best coffee we’ve found in Orange County thus far (I say thus far, because we will be continuing the search).

My aunt, uncle, and cousin ended up coming out to the beach for the day so we met up with them to hang out and catch up.

It was great to see them! ¬†Mika really enjoyed Dave’s story about the sting ray and looking at his scar.

After meeting with them we headed to our friends house for a luau party she was throwing for her mom’s birthday. ¬†She did such a great job with the decorations!

Look at these cute sandals!!  She used icing and nutter butters, what a great idea.

Dave has been craving, and I mean CRAVING, a pina colada.  As soon as we got there, Lena and him got down to business.

Verdict = delicious!

Picture time! ¬†The selfie stick came out, I’ve never seen a selfie stick but this thing was pretty awesome. ¬†The best was when Lena used it to take a regular photo.

We finished off our labor day weekend with a visit from a most unique insect. ¬†I’ve never seen a real life praying mantis, it didn’t like Dave’s foot but I really wanted a size comparison in the picture. ¬†I love how you can tell that it’s looking at Dave’s foot and pretty much saying “woah, back off buddy!”

Hope you guys had a great weekend too!!

Be well
