Crazy Lives

Hi everyone, so that thing we started out with about Chili’s and 10 hours of sleep…. I know you all took that so very literally, but honestly, we’ve been a bit crazy/busy/worn out lately.  Aside from the fact that I’m pretty much horrible at keeping up with a blog in general as it doesn’t suite my highly distracted brain : ) we’ve also just kind of been running at full speed.  October is NO exception.  I honestly can’t wait for Christmas this year!!  Compared to our summer/fall, it’s looking like a dream!

However, in between the crazyness we have been able to squeeze in some day trips to take our mind off of things.  So, in case you’d still like to imagine that there are people out there who can sleep in as long as they’d like and go out to eat wherever they please – see the photos below….

Our little trip to Lake Natoma for some good old canoeing : )

Our day trip to Carmel (yes, it does take 3.5 hours to get there from where we are… I have the best husband in the world!  I soooo needed to see the ocean that day!)

We found ourselves eating at this super fancy italian restaurant, Casanova, it was AMAZING!!  (Yelp described it as being “Carmel’s most romantic restaurant” – I was sold – and I wasn’t disappointed!)

And one more of Kingsley just because this picture cracks me up….

We’re looking forward to colder weather and a little less busyness in our lives – but for now – we’re making the best of it where we can!  : )  I highly recommend a day trip adventure!

P.S. I have my mom, Jim and grandparents to thank for ALL of these photos as they all purchased the most amazing point and shoot camera for me on my birthday this year!  I am sooooooo happy to have it!!!!!  I am terrible at documenting my own life, but now that I have a tiny little camera I can take with me in my purse I find myself pulling it out all the time :)  Thank you wonderful family!!

I’m interested in the couch too! Did you recover it? It looks like Kingsley was resting on some left over fabric.

Thanks for the color filled update! I love seeing the ocean too! Enjoy the freedom to go easily now! It may be a bit harder to travel when the wee one comes! I thought canoeing sounded fun, but I don’t think it would be nearly as fabulous with a 3 month old;)

The couch was a thrift store find – Ed spied it and bought it for me for my birthday :) (The “leftover fabric” is one of the coverings for the arms of the couch.)

Dear Ellie,

You look really pretty in that picture. Paige agrees. This would be easier to comment if it was facebook.
