What We’ve Been Up to Lately

Sorry it’s been awhile again since doing another post!  I wanted to share a little about what we have been up to recently If you care to see.

We’ve been wanting to go for some time now and finally went to the California Academy of Sciences which did not disappoint.  Nola had so much fun running around and looking at everything, I hope to post more about it soon.  Here Nola and Daddy are checking out the fishies.

Our good friend’s Minah and Chase also came over and made dinner for my birthday!!  The food was amazing and it was so nice catching up with them.  Isn’t this the cutest gift?!!  I feel so blessed to have such great friends in my life.

We also went to the San Francisco Craft Bazaar which we also like doing to see if we can find some good gifts and just get inspired.

I brought Nola to see Santa which resulted in a marker, candy cane, cookie and mama to get her to get near the guy.  Santa opened the candy cane to see if that would warm her up and all the while I’m thinking this is actually a little creepy and giving my child mixed messages.  I’m letting this old guy try to coax my child to come by him with candy, hmmm.

Here’s a photo of Nola with Santa last year.  Isn’t it crazy how much she’s grown since then, crying right now!

And the funniest thing that has happened as of late.  Nola was super excited one day after we were playing with her and it seemed the only way to express her happiness was trying to do a breakdance move.  CJ and I both looked at each other with the same thoughts, “our kid is crazy, but also realizing she is the coolest little toddler we know!”  People this whole having a kid thing is pretty hilarious sometimes.

I have so many things other things to write down and share, but life seems to keep on happening.  Hopefully I can eventually share all the things that are stuck in my head.  Some of you may wonder why I even blog and other than the obvious of sharing with family and friend’s what we have been up to living so far away, it also is a way for me to document family memories and thoughts and ideas, it inspires me to explore more and try new things and in a very open world of being a Stay At Home Mom it challenges me to be disciplined in a very small way.  So if you take the time to pop on our blog to see what we are up to, know I love it, but even more than that, I kind of feel like Kathleen from the movie You’ve Got Mail  and when she’s writing to ‘NY152’, “Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life – well, valuable, but small – and sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven’t been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn’t it be the other way around? I don’t really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So good night, dear void.”
