Los Angeles: The Land Of Perfect Party Supplies

This past Thursday Katie and headed to LA for our final supply run for her baby shower (which happened Sunday and was everything we hoped it would be – that post is coming soon!)  We hit all the greatest places in just a few hours, plus some of that awesome traffic we all know and love so much. FIDM, Flower Market, and drinks at the Ace with our cousin Mercedes. 

I’ve decided that party planning is probably the most fun any girl could ever have. Everyone asked me a million times if I was stressed, but it’s more like a stress reliever for me. Flowers, fabrics, food – it’s my personal trinity of soothing!

Boden at Home

You know how much I love black clothing. (I mean, I truly, madly, deeply love it.) But, recently I’ve been trying to branch out and make my wardrobe less… shall we say – blah? So when I was offered a gift card from Boden, I jumped at the chance to add a little splash of color to my wardrobe! You know what caught my eye? This adorable chambray shirt! Okay, so it’s not such a bold color choice, but I am just in love with the feel of it, and it’s been perfect for everything and comfortable enough that I want to wear it at home too!
And wouldn’t you know it? I did pair it with some black for a little jaunt out!  The Casual Shirt is available online here. As always, thank you for reading about the sponsors who make my life a little more fun!

Oh, hey! We moved!

I’ve been so terrible at updating the blog through this whole process, but if you follow me anywhere else, you probably know we moved!! Joel is working out of Costa Mesa now – same job, different location, plus he’s still working in Murrieta at least two days a week. Needless to say, it’s been a crazy past few weeks and things moved much more quickly than we thought they would. You know this things only happen when you are simultaneously rolling out a new website, working through the yearly school testing and trying to adopt. Only then, will big huge changes happen – just because. 

I have zero good pictures as the new house is still in shambles, but give me a few more days and I’ll get a decent post up. We are so happy to be near our family, even though we are still adjusting. Pray that our house would finally close (it’s gone incredibly smooth, it would just be nice to be settled.)

I’m a day late and dollar short with Easter this year, even though we are hosting the party! I plan to catch up and do all my shopping on Saturday with the rest of the world. Here’s to hoping we find clothing in the right sizes! Ha! Ever just told Grandma, “My mom said, ‘I forgot about Easter and didn’t even buy dresses!’ And I’m think, who cares about dresses! We need eggs, eggs, EGGS!!We’re all about the true meaning of the holiday.

In case you remember then from your childhood, did you know that Amazon has the entire Hanna Barbera’s The Greatest Adventure Stories From The Bible online. I’ve been looking for this for a long while and was so glad to find the whole set!
