day 1 and day 2

so apparently i now have a 1st grader..
the playground is sooo big..
she has a DESK!
she can buy lunch if she chooses..
i have been walking her to the playground in the morning and waiting for the bell (yes! a bell) to ring and hoovering to make sure she gets into class ok..
it is a far walk from the playground and a zoo of people everywhere..
they line up then follow the teacher in..
she is too little to be doing this..
she is sort of walking in circles and has this look of wonder her face..
where is her backpack?
where are the bathrooms?
give it a couple weeks and she will be a pro..
i know..
but for now..
you know..

last weekend of summer.

we beached both days..
we played hard both days..
we swam both days..
we got a haircut and picked out our outfit..
we had our backpack full of school supplies ready by the door..
our sparkly new lunch box packed in the fridge..
we were in bed at 7:30 with our new hello kitty alarm clock set..
bye bye lazy mornings and flying by the seats of our pants..
it's time for school..

belly laugh.

 music to my ears..
the summer is nearing an end and the girls are sort of at each other all the time..
who can blame them.. they are together non-stop..
bicker bicker.. i want that.. i had that.. that's mine..
i want the red one..
you get the idea..
then a second later..
you hear..
the belly laugh..
can you hear it?
nothing like it..
it's my fav..
hands down..
never a dull moment.

make-up free as usual..
i do not have time these days to even get a bang trim..
can you see how they are sort of "feathering"..
eyebrows need some plucking too..
life is good.
loco but good.
just this week..
a great night out with my girlfriends, kids played until sundown with their friends about every night, lots of pool time, i reconnected with some old besties, makena had her first sleepover, i have been messing up, then practicing ALOT and then LEARNING a lot about photography, i bought a new amazing vest from anthro and hubby and i are having a date night where i plan on wearing it..
a date.
what do you do on a date?
talk quietly..
eat food slooowly..
order wine?
sit next to eachother?
{ya. i think i want to be THAT annoying couple siting side by side in the booth}
a walk on the beach is a must.. right?
i am excited..

happy friday my friends.

jazz fest

this weekend we went to a jazz in the park paaaaa-rrttttaa with our neighbors..
  i chased chloe, spilled wine all over myself and had about 3 panick attacks when i thought i lost one of my two girls..
{these events are fun.. do not get me wrong..}
they are a lot of work..
a lot.
what keeps me doing it again and again you ask??
their happiness, that silly dancing, contagious giggling and that look of bliss and exhaustion when they fall into bed after a funfilled summer evening..
and then sleep until 8am..
