relaxation at it's finest.

This past weekend: San Diego/Oceanside.
I experienced a new airport: Long Beach. Super old school. Baggage claim was outdoors. So were the gates. Weird, but kinda cool throwback vibe.
Javiers. Have you been there? It's INCREDIBLE mexican food. Well worth going out of your way for. There's one in Irvine and one in Newport... I suggest you get yourself down there real quick.
Read 2 whole books. I'm a speed-reader. BTW, I highly recommend The New York Mormon Regional Singles Halloween Dance (the book)... VERY entertaining. Thanks ma for letting me borrow your kindle.
Got a little color in my skin. Thank goodness... my poor epidermis has been UV free for far too long!
Ate WAY too much.
Had two wonderful breakfasts at the 101 Cafe...delish.
Had a fun little get together with cousins and friends and watched the worst dunk contest in the history of basketball.
Took a grand total of one picture... I love this woman
Fretted over trade rumors of Amare to the cavs/heat... but don't worry, trade deadline is up and he's still around! HALLELUJAH... at least for the rest of this season
Went to the rebs game... I'd rather not talk about it. Although SDSU does have fantastic kettle corn.
Literally took planes, trains and automobiles to get back to P-Town (booooo)
Sat on the backyard steps and got splashed by the crazy waves and laughed harder than I have in a long time!
Played lots of cards
Didn't worry about and thing
and loved every second of it.

oh, weddings.

My bestest friend Brittan got married on January 2nd. We were worried about being outside in the middle of winter, but the day was SO beautiful! We didn't even need coats. She couldn't have picked a more perfect day. It was a little strange for me because I was the only one waiting outside in the lobby while all the other bridesmaids were able to go to the sealing, but no worries, my time will come soon enough (but hopefully not too soon)!! Britt looked gorgeous and we all love her husband Trevor. He's so funny and sweet and treats her like the queen she truly is :))) Her reception was unbelievable and had so many touches that are just so Brittany. I had so much fun making their wedding slideshow, which I love doing by the way, if anyone happens to need one! The wonderful Jennie Slade was the photographer for the day and took some gorgeous shots... she's very talented! Here are some of the cute bridesmaid pics... I love my friends. They are gorgeous. And I miss Courtney. Weddings are fun and marriage is great but friends, I miss you!
PS Isn't Britt's dress amazing?!

5 year-old wisdom.

In kindergarten, they're learning all about Presidents and the White House. The other day, they had to take a picture dressed as Abraham Lincoln and then say what they would do if they were President... cutest. thing. ever.
Here are some of my favorites:
Desi: "If I were President, I would make it so everyone has to be nice to all the black people and all the apricot people." (Can anyone tell me what an apricot person is??)
Oscar: "I would put a karate studio in the White House." (Can you imagine Barack doing karate? Haha, funny mental picture I guess!)
Jacob: "I would make it so on Thursdays, everyone would get free tacos." (You're a man of my own heart, Jacob. I'd vote for you.)
Grace: "I would make a law that you can't kill any dog unless it's not your dog." (So you can pretty much kill any dog but your own? Hmmm...)

I just love these little ones.
