First of all, can you believe that we are already half way through 2014? WHAT? I am flabbergasted. Where did the time go? I guess I was living under a rock for a while doing this whole baby-making thing.
This week was quite eventful I must say. I am pretty dang tired today. I plan to spend the rest of the evening just relaxing with the family. As you may know, I went back to school last Monday. I’ll say it again, thank GOD that my mom is here to help us during this transition. It would have been much harder to drop her off at the daycare instead.
Wednesday night, Paul and I went to a Giant’s game with Grace and Brian. Two words: heated balcony. If I could watch all sporting events in a suite, that would be just fine with me. Anyone else?
Friday was good ol’ 4th of July. We took a wonderful train ride through the redwoods of the Santa Cruz mountains and walked around the beach boardwalk for a bit. I ate my weight in Dippin’ Dots. I wanted the funnel cake and deep-fried Twinkie, but I held myself back. Sophie’s choice. It was a beautiful day and the weather was perfect (I’ll post some pictures soon). I actually got a little pink on my shoulders. I didn’t think my skin knew what melanin was anymore. That evening, we had dinner at Grace and Brian’s and played cards against humanity. I am pretty sure I gained an ab or two from all the laughing. That game is HILARIOUS. If you’ve never played, I highly suggest doing so (but only if you aren’t easily offended haha).
Yesterday, Paul, Grace, Brian, and I saw the La Traviata opera which was live telecasted from the SF Opera House to AT&T ballpark. It was incredibly fun. We brought a picnic and some blankets and sat on the field. Thankfully we were able to get a little spot on the grass. I was about to bowl people over if we didn’t get a space. We agreed that next time we need to bring 50 more blankets because we were freezing our little butts off. Snuggling only helps so much.
This morning, we went to a quaint, local church for mass. It is my favorite Catholic church in the city because it is small, intimate, and the stained glass is gorgeous.
This week is going to be another busy one. I’m still trying to get back into the swing of things. Hold me.
Here are last week’s Life 365 photos!
THIRTY I weep just looking at this photo. Man alive, it was hard. Keep it together, Samantha.
ONE She managed to grab her pacifier, pull it out, then stick it back in again. We were quite impressed. Now that she’s starting to reach for things, please keep all hair and earrings inside the vehicle at all times.
TWO But first, let us take a selfie. What a good sport.
THREE And here ladies and gentlemen is exhibit A as to why her nickname is bubbles.
FOUR USA! USA! USA!
FIVE What a fun night! They even gave us subtitles for the opera so we knew what the heck was going on.
SIX This church has the most beautiful stained glass windows. I could stare at them all day. If you are ever in SF, check it out (St. Teresa of Avila in Potrero Hill).
Have a wonderful week everyone! I don’t know how often I’ll get to posting this week so be sure to follow along on Instagram and Twitter.
