Lovely Day.

Laguna Beach, California. 

Corie and Shar!

Ian super upset at the water destroying his castle. 

Dinner at El Ranchito. 

Shopping at Fashion Island. 

Sunscreen application FAIL.

Turns out I actually really love California. Maybe next time Kory gets a job offer here I won't be so hesitant. I really just love the being at the beach. I also really love my amazing friends Corie and Ian. I am one luck lady! 



Last night we had a surprise party for a very special gal. Her name is Michelle and she is just wonderful! If anyone deserves a party in their honor, it is Michelle. She is the kindest, sweetest person ever! My dear friend Janaea was the master behind the party and seriously, if you ever need a party planned call her. It was perfect! 

Meet Michelle:

And the woman who planned the whole thing, Janaea:

The food was scrumptious and it was so fun to chit chat with all the ladies!


Perma-Smile: System of a Down.

Janaea and I pre-concert. 

Kor Kor and Shar Shar. 

Janaea and Sammy J!

So excited for them to play!

I really never thought I'd ever get a chance to see System of a Down in concert. I've been listening to them since I was probably eleven years old. I blame/thank my big brother for this. I love their sound and their political views... well most of them. Serj (lead singer) very publicly sings against violence and injustice in the world. They are very anit-war, pro-peace like me! I had a ton of fun at the show. Janaea and Sammy are very dear friends, and I am so glad we got to go together. 


For her Muddah

Addi is back visiting Seattle! Today we went to the Pacific Science Center. I always have a lot of fun when I go. Here is some of the stuff we did:

Wind Tunnel 

Silly Mirror #1

Silly Mirror #2

Like her Pa

Addi is amazing at the brain buster puzzles. 

She was a little terrified of the butterfly on her head. 

My favorite butterfly!


Feliz Cumpleanos Momica.

Today is my beautiful, talented, loving, intelligent, Mothers birthday. I seriously love my mom and I am so lucky to have her in my life. She has taught me so much, and continues to teach me. She cares about and loves me only the way a mother could. She has sacrificed so much for me and truly would do anything for me. I admire how much she loves her Heavenly Father and has taught me to trust in Him always. Gracias por todo que has hecho por mi. Te quiero hasta la luna, ida y vuelta.

So proud of my Argentine heritage.
