Our garden is somehow thriving. Its a miracle! We’re already up to our eyeballs in squash and, the best part, squash blossoms! We made a yummy breakfast with both of the aforementioned and a bunch of herbs. It’s one of my biggest pleasures so far living in our house, cooking from our garden.
Being as how this was Sean’s first father’s day (In my book at least. He is skeptical of my interpretation of the rules), I told him to pick what he wanted to do and we’d do it. Shock of shockers, he picked to go to a brewery. He got to drink some tasty beverages and had a ready and willing designated driver with him (I think he’s going to be slightly bummed when I’m no longer preggo). We had an amazing lunch at the tiny but delish and stylish Bell St. Farms in Los Alamos. Its a must-do if you are in the santa ynez/santa barbara/los alamos area. Lastly we made a pretty epic dessert. Recipe here in case your interested. I can’t wait to celebrate again next year with our little Hazelnut in tow.
My mom and Brian’s house is SO close to bring finished! The cabinets are coming on Monday and then the lighting needs to be hung and the tile laid around the cabinetry and countertops fabricated.
I’m blogging live from my mom & Brian’s house this morning. They have walls!!! It’s unbelievable how fast it all goes once you break ground. Just from what’s here now, I can picture it all and were dreaming of all of the fun that will be had here. It’s gonna be amazing!
Remember when I said that there was a whole bunch of crazy involved in our house search? Well, this house stands out above all the rest. It was basically uninhabitable and we were going to have to gut the whole thing but it had some funny features worth sharing:
Feature A: Collage Carpet
Feature B: Wallpaper in the Shower! How does that even work?
Feature C: Carpet in the Kitchen. Mmmm, yummy.
Feature D: Bathroom sink in the bedroom
I love looking through all my old house hunting pictures. It totally validates all of the stress & waiting of building.
How cool would it be to go back in time and spend a day at 1950’s Disneyland??
This outfit is basically what I want to wear, with slight variations, all spring & summer long. That and long flowey comfy dresses and cardigans.
