Some enjoyable issues from currently:
the Pilot and I celebrated our fifteenth anniversary yesterday! The woman on this pic had no concept what the long run would maintain, and the way we’d have these excellent, wonderful, stunning infants. Feeling very blessed to share this life with a person I really like a lot.
Our items to one another: we spent the day doing not a lot in any respect, and it was every little thing.
It’s been so busy the previous couple of months that we had been speaking about how unimaginable it could be to simply sit round all day and watch TV and luxuriate in one another’s firm. I launched the Pilot to F45, we drank espresso, ate recent sourdough, and deliberate out journey and occasions till subsequent summer season, after which I took a nap whereas the Pilot caught up on some work. It was the low-key and wonderful day we’d each been craving.
We took the infants with us for anniversary dinner at Vivace, which is a traditional Tucson Italian restaurant with attractive views of the foothills. We shared antipasto, escargot (Liv’s fave), loved wonderful entrees, wine, and dessert. It was the proper strategy to have fun.
I’m trying ahead to a weekend at dwelling after being gone for just a few weeks, despite the fact that we had one of the best time in San Diego final weekend! We drove up for the weekend to have fun Max’s Bar Mitzvah. We’ve identified Max ceaselessly – his mother Betsy is one among my BFFs and her husband and the Pilot are additionally good mates – so we knew we needed to be there for such a special day. We received into San Diego early night, and took the children on to Belmont Park to trip all of the rides (don’t take your kids on the rickety outdated curler coaster simply FYI) and a late dinner at Crack Shack.
I just about by no means eat fried hen. It’s greasy, makes me really feel drained, and sometimes hurts my abdomen, so I skip it. Crack Shack fried hen is a gold star, not greasy, and at all times price it to me. I had some crispy nuggets on my salad (tossed with spicy buffalo sauce) and it was so so good. (They additionally use high quality elements so I didn’t really feel sick in any respect afterwards.) Also extremely advocate the biscuits with honey miso butter. YUM.
Saturday morning, we had Naked Cafe for breakfast, after which frolicked at OB and let the children run round within the waves. We made fast cease at Nordstrom for footwear for the children (they outgrow every little thing in 4 seconds proper now), after which received prepared for the Bar Mitzvah. The ceremony was at Congregation Beth Israel and was so extremely stunning and significant. We beloved the music, and we so impressed watching Max learn from the Torah and saying the speech he’d practiced a lot.
(Dress is right here, P’s costume is right here on sale now, and Liv’s costume is right here)
After the ceremony, we went to Betsy and Jeremy’s for the massive fiesta! An occasion firm utterly remodeled their home into Max’s Cantina, with a taco stand and recent tortillas, tons of appetizers, reside mariachis, a full bar, a churro and ice cream station, and classic video video games within the yard for the children. It was a BLAST. I didn’t take a ton of pics of the unimaginable decor, however the firm did a reel if you wish to test it out for social gathering inspo!
We stayed late and partied, after which ended up driving again to Tucson late Sunday afternoon. We all agreed that the journey was means too brief, however will certainly be again quickly. We can by no means actually keep away for very lengthy.
