How was your weekend? On Sunday for Mother’s Day we had a french toast breakfast at one of our favorite neighborhood spots then met up with some friends and their kids at the zoo. It was Cecilia’s first trip (of what I’m sure will be many) and, of course, she slept through most of it! Afterward, we came home and she took a nice long nap while I did some reading, so it was a great, laid back day! Happy Belated Mother’s Day to all you mamas out there!
Isn’t the orchid above absolutely gorgeous? I’ve tried to have orchids twice and both times were incredibly unsuccessful. My dad and aunt on the other hand, pretty much just have to look at an orchid and it grows tall and beautiful. Obviously I’m exaggerating about this and they put a boat load of work into their orchids, but seriously, one day…
Mad Men was soooo good last night! Can you believe Betty’s storyline? Since everyone’s storyline is getting wrapped up, I’m sad that we may not see anymore of Joan and Betty 🙁 I’m still in complete denial that the show is almost over. Wah!
I can’t believe there is only one more Mad Men episode. Ever. This past TV season has been so depressing for me because three of my favorite shows (including Mad Men) are ending. First it was Sons of Anarchy then Parenthood and now Mad Men. In my opinion these three are three of the best shows to ever be on television. I haven’t liked a new show in a really long time, so I’m hoping some good ones pop up next season to fill the void of these shows!
Later this week, we’re embarking on our first trip as a family of three when we take a road trip to my home in the San Francisco Bay Area. This trip is an annual trip to take part in the Bay to Breakers 12K. Last year I (unknowingly) ran the race pregnant so it’s crazy that this year I’ll be there with my 3 1/2 month old! What a difference a year makes! We’re making the trip a mini road trip, so be sure to follow along via Instagram as we make the scenic trip north!
We won’t be coming back from our trip until late Monday, so I’ll see you back here in two weeks!
