our weekend adventures

before i start this post i just want to say…

HAPPY 30TH BIRTHDAY, CALE!!!

dirty thirty! yikes, my man is getting old, you guys. soooo kidding! {kinda ūüėČ }
how did i get so lucky to find you floatin’ a river in a state that you don’t even live in! i love you for all the good you have brought into mine & jaz’s life. you are by far the best thing that has ever happened to us. thank you for everything you do to make me feel like a queen. i love you forever & for always, honey. i can’t wait to be your¬†mrs.¬†

friday

we FINALLY found girl scout cookies! needless to say, we stocked up.

saturday

after dance, jaz & enjoyed some bbq. meh, not my fave but it’ll do.

i recently ran out of my foundation so i just had to make a sephora run. brushes get me in trouble.

IMG_7216
i have a problem. waaaaatttt? i¬†needed¬†some things…

IMG_7244
…see no biggie. just some of my favorite basics. i had to switch back to¬†biolage¬†shampoo & conditioner because cale said my hair smelled like wet dog when i used¬†living proof. {sad face}

IMG_7218 IMG_7233
before jaz had to scurry off to bed we watched one of my favorites…tarzan! it still makes me laugh out loud. i haven’t seen the brandon frasier one in forever! that’ll have to be next weekend.
then when mina & cale went to bed i stayed up {which is rare} and watched all of the “getting to know” teen mom specials! i had just had jazmyne when this show came out so all of their babies are the same age as jaz and i swear, i’m just a brown version of maci bookout. we have the¬†exact same story. can’t wait for it to start in march!

IMG_7229
oh oh, i almost forgot this one! i¬†very seldom get the love snuggles from lulu. so when i do, i take a stupid amount of pictures until she gets fed up with a camera being in her face and jumps off. doesn’t she look just thrilled?

sunday

IMG_7236
it’s the day before cale’s birthday! he wanted piggies in a blanket so birthday boy gets what birthday boy wants!

IMG_7242
these two are finally getting along! and by “getting along” i mean lulu makes him her bitch. poor chandler.

IMG_7250
we had to make a quick run to get some new fishies {preslee don’t you dare say a word} but i didn’t have time to blow dry my hair. so this is what the public had to endure. super attractive!

IMG_7252 IMG_7256 IMG_7253
the first little guy reminds me of the shrimp on¬†finding¬†memo that eats all the bacteria off, anyone…no?
look we found nemo! just keep swimming, just keep swimming swimming swimming!
okay…what the hell is this thing? i have never seen these before! creepy!!!


cale’s birthday surprise!¬†

today is cale’s big dirty 30! so i wanted to do something really nice that i knew he wouldn’t be suspecting. i’ve never really been a huge sushi fan, or any kind of fish fan for that matter. but since moving to seattle i have become infatuated with it. fish that is {salmon, cod, lobster, etc} sushi however has taken some time. any who cale loves it! like…LOVES IT! so i decided to set up a surprise birthday dinner with some of our closest friends at one of the best sushi restaurants in downtown seattle, japonessa.

i created this from a simple template online and sent it out via email. how cute is this? it’s a little sushi roll! paperless post is awesome and i would absolutely recommend it to anyone inviting guests via email. super easy to make and manage!

IMG_7278_2
do you know how hard it is to keep a secret from this man? the last surprise i tried doing for him, he ruined. i can’t get anything past this guy! because i knew that he would know exactly where we were going if he could see, i made sure to blindfold him for the entirety of the ride there.

IMG_7298_2
blindfold is still on!

IMG_7301 IMG_7303
surprise!! all of our closest friends were waiting for us when we walked in to the restaurant! this group right here is what we call the beardly folk. also, the bottom picture is supposed to be of them “mean-muggin” i think cale needs to work a little more on the mean mug and not so much on the constipated face.
***all of these dapper fellows including 3 others will be the handsomest groomsmen! don’t shave the beards guys! ***

IMG_7304
yummmmm! this was only a portion of everything we got! after this, i am the biggest fan of sushi now! i also had a seaweed salad…oh my goodness, so good!!

IMG_7306

how cute is my fiancé? super cute!

IMG_7309

happy birthday, honeybun. here’s to spending all of your birthdays together.
i love you!
…now get out of bed because i know that’s where you’re reading this and make sure jaz isn’t late to school! ūüėČ

our weekend adventures

sorry for the late post…it was a rough night.

friday

IMG_6787
went to my 6 am barre class and noticed that my arms are becoming more tone! woohoo!

IMG_6781
we tried playing with this little dude. we are so hopeful that we can socialize him….so far, it’s not looking too good. we love little chandler bing and want him to adjust so bad!!

saturday

IMG_6824
jaz & i had a little impromptu outfit shoot saturday morning, coming soon!

IMG_6826
how did i not know that the 4th book was out?! i am obsessed with this series! very very similar to 50 shades of gray.

IMG_6828 IMG_6827
we tried a new bbq joint for dinner saturday night and….oh my goodness!!!!! i’m a texas girl and i never thought i would find a bbq place that could compete with texas. i mean, this is no¬†salt lick but, that’ll do seattle, that’ll do.

IMG_6830
guess what soon to-be newlyweds booked their honeymoon and need passports!!?!?! WE DID!!!! do you know how hard it is not to smile when your 6 year old is staring at you and saying, “you can’t smile. mommy. don’t smile!” what a turd.

so we were basically in a food coma when we got home from dinner, so we just sat around and played with lulu’s nub tail. hahahahah

superbowl sunday

IMG_6833
blog family, meet my person, preslee. i spend the majority of my time at home face timing this lady {she lives in texas}.¬†sunday morning was dedicated to my bachelorette, ahhhh yeah!!! she’s going to hate me for posting this but i think it’s adorbs!

IMG_6838
some inspirational words that really hit home with me at my morning barre class.
“always tell the truth. use kind words. keep your promises. giggle & laugh. stay happy & be positive. love another. always be grateful. forgiveness is mandatory. try new things. say please & thank you. smile”

IMG_6842
welp. this was¬†the day that seattle has been waiting for!!!!¬†SUPERBOWL SUNDAY!!!!!¬†it was a much better game than last year in that it wasn’t a complete massacre. haha i will say that last call was dumb.¬†why did you not give it to lynch?!?!?!¬†ughh!!! but i will say that seattle is still incredibly proud of the seahawks. people can say what they want as far as “being classy” but they are an inspiration and a great team. it’s okay, we’ll be back next year. GO HAWKS!

does anyone else feel as icky as i do because of what you consumed yesterday? bleghhhhhh!
what adventures did you go on?

 IMG_6325

we have been waiting soooo long for this movie to come out! and it didn’t disappoint. definitely would suggest {if you haven’t} watching¬†the desolation of¬†smaug¬†before watching this one. it doesn’t give a recap like most sequels.

IMG_6332 IMG_6334
our lusers smelled like dookie so she had a little bath sunday morning. she does okay when it comes to baths. but cmon pixie bobs are supposed to love baths!!! grrr

IMG_6337
we were invited over to a friend’s house to watch the¬†seahawks vs rams game… what a crappy first half. seahawks eventually pulled it together during the second half and won 20-6 woop woop!

this has been one long weekend! i took a half-day on wednesday so that made it a 4 1/2 day weekend…whoa. it was awesome! it’s so quiet around here without our minas, she’ll be home next monday though, yay!
back to work tomorrow, yuck! all my fellow accountants know what a stressful time this is for accounts payable and payroll…two words that we all dread…year end. ew.

what did you get into this weekend?

always,
