happy birthday skylar!

survived the party at chuck e. cheese. madhouse i say, crazy fun madhouse!
the birthday boy was a master in the ticket blaster. he managed to grab 1400 tickets in the booth alone which was quite impressive. i had no idea he would do that well. tons of tokens were handed out and by the time we left skylar had accumulated over 2000 tickets. lucky kid! (he had the help of grandma and auntie giving him their tickets too)
also survived another kid week with christopher's kids. they visited the seattle public library and checked out a handful of books and movies, played at ravenna park which i highly recommend the little zipline, went to skylar's birthday party, and finally drove down south to visit their grandpa and grandma.

Take Me Out to the Ball Park

Last Saturday, Christopher's dad drove up for a reunion with his grandkids (hadn't seen them in 4 years) and we headed to a Mariners baseball game.

He spoiled them good and caved to their every desire! I just wish I would have gotten a photo of him with the kids, drats!

5 feet 5 inches

i should have turned a little for you to see the 5 inch wedge on these sandals, but i am definitely taller in these shoes for sure. i shocked my coworkers when i came to work in a dress and heels. so not me! but it was fun to break out of the keen sandals i wear daily. (ha, i even have a pair sitting on the balcony)
keens and me will always be tight, but sometimes you have to break out of the mold you set yourself in.

No Rest for the Wicked or Myself!

It's been a busy July! Work has been super busy with vacations that I must cover. I still haven't worked out a summer vacation for myself because I want to save it for October when my new nephew arrives. I can't wait until my sis figures out a name for Skylar's little brother.

Oh, and let me tell you Skylar is now wearing skinny jeans! He's already tall and skinny. It just makes me chuckle every time I see him. I miss baggy skater jeans, lol!

I turned 38 last week and am now an owner of 5 inch wedge sandals! wait til you see them. they go perfectly with my donna morgan jersey dress that i fell in love with at nordstroms. donna morgan i love your jersey dresses!

I will leave you with this pic of elizabeth from our day of sailing several weekends ago. i love her beach hair!

Happy 4th of July!

spent a super chill day on our balcony enjoying the people watching until the big show at 10pm. (hence no make up, ack!)

I wouldn't have wanted to spend it any other way!
