Life lately

This week was my first official week teaching 8 classes (for the next 5 weeks) and I got pretty overwhelmed at one point. I know I've got a little too much on my plate when everything starts to fall apart haha. When I get overwhelmed with all the things I have to do I think about it constantly and don't pay attention to real life in front of me. I'm trying to learn how to balance my time and well as my brain power on one task at a time, instead of thinking about all of them all the time and getting stressed out.

Life lately

Another busy week for us here. Not doing anything super exciting, just living our lives. I taught 8 classes this week and I’m prettyyyy exhausted. It’s funny that my work week is equivalent to a normal person’s average workday, but they’re not usually sweating and yelling and exhausting their muscles for 8 hours straight so that’s the difference πŸ™ˆ

My wild flower

My wild flower

I’m so grateful to my mom for many things, one of them being that she saved my baby clothes.

This little dress is one of the many gorgeous totally 90s pieces that my mom saved, and it looks soooo cute on Ever. She also cut up a couple of my old dresses and used pieces of them in a quilt she made for Ever. So so sweet.

where are we going? to the zoo 🎼

where are we going? to the zoo 🎼

The Santa Ana zoo is a little pathetic, but it’s always a good outing for Ever. She gets to ride the train and see some farm animals and monkeys. And it’s fairly cheap, too, not like San Diego zoo or the LA zoo. So I guess you get what you pay for πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Ever's Room

Ever's Room

I've been planning this post for a while, and I finally feel like her room is "finished" enough to finally post it. It's been a work in progress, but so fun. I've never gotten to decorate a kids' room before, so this was new but also so exciting to me.

at home with Desenio

at home with Desenio

Since moving into our little house 6 months ago, this wall in the living room has been in limbo. We've changed it up so much and just couldn't decide what to do with it. So when I stumbled upon Desenio, I knew exactly what we should do. I've always loved photo ledges, and this ended up turning out just like I hoped. We originally planned to do two shelves, but decided that it would be too much for the wall and stuck with one shelf displaying our favorite artwork. We got a few other pieces from Desenio that we'll be hanging around the house, including Ever's room, but I haven't gotten them framed yet, and these were the winners for this wall.
