In Good Hands

I love it when our sitters send us pics of the kids when we are out for the evening. It gives us peace of mind that they are in good hands and that are having fun too.

A Seussical Ball

Last Saturday, along with a few friends, David & I attended the annual Junior League Literacy Gala (Dr.Seuss inspired) at the Coral Casino. This was a benefit to raise money for the League's Literacy focus. Fun was had by all and everyone looked FABULOUS! As you can see by the photos, especially the one above!
Aren't these cookies adorable?!
I can't believe I am going on my 7th year in the League. It truly is an amazing organization and I have learned a lot about being a volunteer within the community. It's a humbling experience when you have the opportunity to help those that are not as fortunate. It's an experience that I look forward to sharing with my daughters someday soon.
I love this guy more and more everyday!
Thankful the sun came out for this photo op!
I think this was take #5?! Right, ladies?

2 Years, 4 Months

Seems like an odd age to blog or talk about, huh? The significance of this age? Nothing major. Sophia was this age when Kalista was born : ) And although they couldn't be any more different from each other...I can't imagine my life without them.

Introduction to a New School

On Saturday, David & I attended a fundraising event for Marymount of Santa Barbara. We were guests of friends, Nikki & Larame, whose children attend this phenomenal school. Our other friends, Marcy & Todd and Sheri & Jim were also guests making our table FUN!

I was bummed not to have fabulous pictures of the view from the Coral Casino. But it was a rainy and windy evening. : ( Nonetheless, everyone had a blast! And where else could you watch a dog get auctioned off for $4,500.00?!

Me with Nikki, Marcy & Sheri
A rare photo op without kids. And we had grown-up clothes on : )
My very best partner in crime!

The Perfect Weekend

I just got back from an AMAZING (uhhh-may-zing) weekend with my girlfriends at Ojai Valley Inn & Spa. The weather was beautiful. The treatments were relaxing and much needed. Pool time with cocktails and food like heaven. The company was the BEST!

But what made my weekend getaway even more relaxing? Coming home to the laundry being done and put away, the house all clean, the grocery shopping done, and dinner thought out and being prepared. I have a wonderful hubby!

Raspberry Mojito after a fab massage!
Salmon wrap was DELISH!

Can't vacation without a little Veuve
Love these ladies! I also love those truffle chips ; )
Nothing like an oversized warm chocolate chip cookie with ice cream!
I think anything in a cast iron skillet is yummy.
I think Sheri agrees ; )
Cheers until next time!
