Our Mental Health Trip

T and I have barely spent time together this summer 
due to opposite work schedules
 so for his 25th birthday we went to San Clemente, CA
 You all requested pictures so here they are :)
Masterchef in the airport
if you haven't watched that show yet,
Our condo from the beach
3 min walk
We loved being in a real kitchen
and air conditioning
View from the balcony
First Day at the beach
Sunburns followed
T is always hungry
Ocean Festival was there while we were there
Woody's lined the pier
I need one of those cars
Ariel and King Triton were kind enough to grace us with their royal presence
My floppy hat
that looks like an Indiana Jones Hat
but it's JCREW so I figured it was cool and trendy
We headed up to Balboa Island
Balboa bars had to happen
Here's the thing
When you are on vacay with just 2 people
it's REALLY hard to get pics of you both
the arm will be in most pics
I love balboa
I wish we could have paddle boarded there
Headed up to LA
this happened
I will never go to LA again
I will stick to Orange County
For T's birthday he wanted to go to a museum
True Story:
As this boy saw a Monet hanging there
He dropped my hand and RAN to it
I know my place
Beautiful views of the dreadful city
and the smog too
The Arm
Awesome gardens
We were really close to the teample
Trent had never been
That temple is huge
T wanted a breakfast burrito
we had to try out the place at the end of the pier
he ended up making him the wrong thing
T ate it anywaysio 
but then the cook brought him out another burrito with the right fillings
T was in heaven
One stop shop
good food 
fishing poles
T surfed
ask him how it went
found out later where he was surfing is home to 2 great whites
yeah... awesome
FHE at the beach
made some friends
parents of T's mission companion
they fed us twice and took us to their ward's FHE
and yes, my leg is popped there
weird I get it

We had a fantastic time
we need to do a trip every year
Europe up next!

4th of July- without fireworks

Took a picture in front of a barn with diving swallows
who make their nests out of SPIT
but it was mom's dream
and the reason mads looks so cute is because she spent forevs picking out her outfit
but it paid off
 We had plenty of quality time with the baby
who will probably punch me in the face the second she comes out
I tend to poke and push to find her a little too much
sorry chels
Boys went on a mountain biking ride
which was a "FOUTZ" bike ride
Dad "it's not that far"
Isaac comes home beat up "it was 11 miles, up hill"
Don't even get me started on "FOUTZ" miles
Went on the Alpine Slide and Coaster
My pick? Coaster
You don't get stuck behind slow people
But no fireworks 
They were cancelled due to the fires 

Best part was after this trip and seeing the pics I realized I am quite large
Diet Started
9 pounds down in a week!

Wardrode Malfunction

Ok... so not really.

But everytime I look into my closet I think, "Why do I buy such ugly clothes?"
ok... so maybe they are not UGLY but they are ALL.OVER.THE.PLACE
Putting together outfits is hard
What Not to Wear... where are you!?

Here are some items I would LOVE to add to my closet

Love this whole outfit-
but the shirt
Horseshoes AND Anchors
too good to be true.
Perfect shirt in anchors and horseshoes
color blocking
It's too much

Collection pencil skirt in colorblock sequin

oh and teal

Outfit Image
This skirt just looks so comfy and polished
two things I lack in my clothing sometimes

Love these shoes-
they would compliment so many outfits
Nordstrom, you have done it again
BP. 'Paxton' Oxford Flat

Lessons Learned

1. When you don't have AC in your house and it's summer- it's UNBEARABLE.
2. When you take your house & car keys off the  normal ring and don't put them back on the normal ring-when you leave the house the next day with that normal ring, you will be locked out.
3. Being locked out of house and car in the summer- it's hot
4. Brothers with cars are life savers
5. When a metal lever is stuck, don't use your whole force to move it. You will get a blood blister
6. When GAP has an extra 40% off sale- you HAVE you buy something
7. Don't EVER EVER EVER tell your boss your like the Bachelorette-
 he will judge you forever and accuse you of not being virtous,
 lovely of good report or praiseworthy... my bad
8. Life is better when mom's around
9. The Overture of 1812 is much more "bomb" with cannons- ha get it?
10. Patient husbands are the best
