IMG_7848 what’s a weekend without a stop at target? we saw the cutest puppies! they had little hair ties in their hair and i about died.

IMG_7852 ugh… i tell cale over and over don’t schedule an oil change on a weekend you work…i always get suckered into getting the most expensive checkup and i just nod like i know what they are talking about. grrrr when they told me that it was going to take TWO HOURS to change my oil, i kindly asked for a rental. let’s just say that i felt like a spoiled brat because i couldn’t even back up without my backup camera. {eye roll} first world problems right? slap me.

IMG_7854 after the two hours were up, guess what jaz & i had to do? oh yeah…wait some more… i was so irritated at the end of the day that i went home and took a nap which i never do!

IMG_7857 we got invited to celebrate one of our dear friend’s birthday at an indian restaurant and this little love bug was there! miss neva diva lives in couer d’alene, idaho so we don’t get to see her and her parents very often so this was such a treat!
happy birthday, tyler!

sunday

IMG_7866unfortunately, sunday starts off at night for you guys. cale & i woke up at 7:30 thanks to our damn cats, i facetimed by “person” and then, honestly, fell back to sleep until 1 pm. {gasp} i never do that! so sunday chores got off to a late start.

then we went to dinner at our favorite mexican restaurant, i didn’t order my normal thing, WHAT A HUGE MISTAKE. always order your favorite…always.

so this was basically my night. blogging, tallying up contestants for the giveaway {!!!} and watching 19 kids and counting.

IMG_7865 here’s a peace offering for my boring weekend. my kid and my incredibly long kitty cat. we got so lucky with lulu for how tolerable she is with jazmina. chandler, on the other hand, is not. whoops.

i am going to apologize in advance if my “our weekend adventures” for this coming weekend is late. i’m going to texas, y’all!!!! i am so so excited. i’m excited to see my friends and family, i’m excited to meet with new vendors but i am ECSTATIC to see and try on my dress for the first time! when i tried her on at the boutique, she was a completely different color than what i ordered, so it’ll be like a completely different dress! ahhhhhhhhhhh!!

please tell me what you did this weekend to take my mind off having to get on a plane wednesday. i’m such a baby

always,

IMG_4965
jaz and i went and shot some photos for a future post and these cherry blossoms were the perfect back drop! this is the earliest anyone has ever seen them blossom! so beautiful!

weekend
this is what seattle people do when the sun is out. we went to uvillage and these sun bathers were everywhere! it was so nice out!

IMG_7566
we decided to stop and paint some pottery. jaz had never done it before so i thought why not! i needed a new earring bowl anyway so this was perfect and so much fun! i can’t wait to pick them up next weekend!

IMG_7573
and i ended the night by watching the last grey’s anatomy. they’re posing like superheroes here, and superheroes they were! at least in this episode.

sunday

IMG_7576
so the time change completely screwed us up and we woke up way later than usual. so we just said, ah what the hell, let’s go get some breakfast… at 12 in the afternoon….no judging.

IMG_7579
mommy had some pampering time. i was in dire need of a mani so off i went! i decided to go with a spring color, i think it’s safe to do that, right?

IMG_7594
HAHA! yeahhh. so we were going to the movie theatre to see paddington…. well i took us to the wrong theatre so i stole the keys from cale and said get in, we can make it to the other theatre in time! cale told me to not speed on this certain road and literally right as i finished saying “shut up” i saw a police car with it’s speed gun out…shitttttt! yep i got pulled over for speeding 19 miles over the speed limit. whoopsie. however, i was really honest with him, he asked me if i knew how i fast i was going and i said, ” errr i dunno, speeding” {shruggy apologetic face}. so since i didn’t try to play dumb he let me go with a warning, phew!

IMG_7595
after all the excitement {not} we just went home and kept cleaning instead of going to the movies. after we were done i went and picked up some chipotle. they totally ripped me off on the lettuce!

weekend 2
{sorry for he scary no make-up face!!} look who is cuddling. it’s a bit of a force cuddle but it’s not like i was pinning him to me. i’m trying to slowly introduce him to cuddles. baby steps, y’all.
