Life as we know it

A lot has changed since I wrote my last post. For one thing, L is now 9 weeks old and totally amazing.

Next is that after my parents left, W’s mom came to visit, left and my mom came back. I definitely had some struggles and needed all the help we could get. So thank you moms for everything’s!

In addition to having a newborn and a c-section we’re in the middle of the moving process. We are leaving the beautiful island of Oahu and headed to California! I’m excited to be back in my home state, closer to my family and sadly still far (but closer still) to W’s family.

Our furniture has been packed and taken so we are living in a large empty house with a mattress on the floor, a small table with two metal chairs and two “easy chairs” if you can call them that.

We borrowed a coffee pot and a couple other items and bought some crappy stuff from Target to be able to sort of cook for ourselves while we repaint walls and wait for late August to come around. Then we should arrive around the same time our stuff does.

This also means not only do I never have free time (silly baby) but I also don’t really have a computer. So this post is coming from my iPad…I’ll be a little low tech in the picture department for awhile.

I’m hoping to sneak in a post during nap times so we’ll see if that works out, hope everyone is having a great week!
Xoxo,

Baby Shower and trip to California

So it’s about time I posted this!

A month ago I traveled back to California to have a baby shower with my family and friends that still live in the area.

In a word, it was — wonderful.

I got to see nearly all of the people I love and miss the most.

I was so honored that so many people came to join and celebrate and visit with me. Some I’m lucky enough to see once or twice a year and others I haven’t seen in nearly four or five years so it was truly a great day.

My grandmother, who lives in Southern California, made the trip with my Aunt and cousin to fly north for just 24 hours to attend. I cannot express how truly blessed I felt to have them there.

Thank you to the wonderful people who took the time to throw this shower for me, as well as to those who attended. I love you all so much! I’m excited for you all to meet the little guy someday!

These are just a few of the wonderful people who were there….I could have made an entire ‘I love all the people pictures post’ … but I’ll reign it in.

I also got to spend a little quality time with my awesome parents.

My dad cheated at Jenga….

And my mom and I got to watch him play hockey.

I also go my very favorite food (La Bou!) And got to see where the new Kings’ arena is being built. Can’t wait to see my boys play there some day! #herewestay

It was a very short trip but it was amazing. I cannot believe the next time I visit my hometown I’ll have a brand new tiny person with me!
