Currently.... {California}

He rocks.

We have arrived in California and it has been pretty great so far.  I mean, Ben works really long days so we don't get to see him as much as we would like, but the California part has been top notch! We went to the beach last week.  I didn't think Everett would like it and we wouldn't last long but I was so happy to be so wrong.  He was in his element!  I have maybe never seen him happier? We would try to take him out of the waves thinking he would be cold and he would just turn and run back in as fast as he could.  Not only that, but he LOVED the sand, he was laying in it on his tummy, making sand angels, scooping and bucketing all the sand he could, shoving it every crevasse and crease possible! Who knew my Canadian white-as-rice baby would be such a beach bum.  I can't wait to go back!  Here is some other riff-raff going on.

Every day at approximately 10am, the sun hits our little porch/balcony perfectly.  And every day at approximately 10am Everett goes down for a nap. At approximately 10:15am, you will find me out there in swimsuit and SPF 30 getting my bronze on.  It's a pretty great schedule thing we have going on. ba dum-dum dum-dum-dum

To get my butt into shape.  I know I have said this before but I have never really felt worse about my body than I have right now. I guess after I did Insanity and didn't lose a pound, I just felt like it was pointless and haven't put much thought into eating great or exercising like I should.  Suddenly in California where swimsuit opportunities are popping up, I am regretting that decision.  I need to do SOMETHING, but I'm not sure what to do.  The trendy whole 30? Smoothie something?  The thing is, from past experience I need something structured and with rules or I don't stick to it.  Any ideas people?  Plus I'm still breastfeeding so there's also that excuse/justification for the extra calories I've been telling myself.

I know I am (literally) 10 years late to the party, but I am loving Veronica Mars.  Kristen Bell is my girl and Logan Echolls is the dreamy reformed (ish) bad boy.  Makes me want to be a high-school detective or something. But seriously, it's like a cult classic and just this year, the fans raised like 8 million dollars on kick-starter for a fully funded Veronica Mars movie. I dig it. I am completely addicted and dream about it almost every night haha

All the rings.  I want all the rings in the world. I want my hands to be heavy with all the rings I'm wearing.  Last night my friend and I spent like 2 hours on Etsy and other sites just looking at and analyzing rings.  "Could I build a life around this ring?" was asked more than once. This or this is my top pick for my next ring and I am also loving this and this. My favorite ring (besides my wedding ring is my push present (you know, for pushing out a baby) from Ben-it is this tiny gold heart ring, and I want to get one for every one of my babies to stack eventually.  This one would probably be next.

Californian spammin:
Everett, Keelia and I visited the Ventura harbor on maybe the windiest day ever.
Pure Joy.
Something I really appreciate about California-they really beautify their spaces. And said tanning balcony.
'Hey Everett, it's time to go home' "NNNNEEEVVVEEERRRR'
Oh hey!
