-Seeing one of my little bros graduate.
I’m so proud of Trevor! It’s so crazy, because I vividly remember Trev when he was Livi’s age… and now, he’s graduated high school.
It was a solid reminder that time really does fly by, and I’m and so excited to see what he accomplishes next.
After the ceremony, we went to madre’s for a Mexican feast:
and cake 🙂
We got our makeup done for our photo shoot, and the woman who did my makeup used this blush/bronzer combo from Laura Mercier. Since you have to buy three products to get your makeup done, it was one of the three 😉
-Sleeping in. Fellow parents will probably agree that there is a 6th love language when you become a parent: waking up with the baby so your partner can sleep in. Yesterday, I woke up at 9 — it was insanely amazing.
-The Great Gatsby.
I had heard mixed reviews about the movie, but since I’m a huge Baz Luhrman fan (Moulin Rouge is one of my all-time favorite movies) and wasn’t expecting an era-appropriate film, I knew I was going to love it. It was beautiful to watch, and I especially loved the actors, costumes and the music. The symbolism of the book translated well to the movie, and we also saw it in 3D which was awesome.
-Hot bar Thursday night. It’s quickly becoming a tradition in our house, especially since I just want to eat everything but not cook anything after I get off work. Thursday is also when our grocery stash has started to dwindle, so we can pick restock on essentials and eat dinner in one spot! Two birds.
-Date night with the Pilot. We went to Pita Jungle for drinks and appetizers:
and just enjoyed some time together. He flew nights this week, so it was nice to hang out with my friend 🙂
-I used to be annoyed when other people who do this, but I have to brag about Oliv. She’s putting two-word sentences together! My favorite is “happy baby,” even though “Elmo cracker” is pretty amazing, too.
-Listening to the announcer read the graduates’ names and realizing that a handful of them were baby ballerinas the year I started teaching dance. 14 YEARS AGO. Oh dear me.
-Delayed onset muscle soreness. I tend to get a little, um, enthusiastic (= cray cray) in the boot camp class I teach. My calves are still crying for mercy.
