Hello Monday, Hello James

It's Monday again!

Every Monday I do a "hello" post where I basically wrap up the previous week for you with pictures and such to show you what we did.

Between last Monday and today we've driven a total of 14 hours. Yikes. Plus we have another six to do this week. It was a really fantastic week though. 

We drove two hours to see my fam last Monday and spent Monday- part of Thursday with them. Then Thursday we drove six hours from my family's house up to June Lake to see my husband (insert happy dance). It had been way too long since we saw that guy so we toughed the drive. It wasn't easy just me and my two year old but James did FANTASTIC. I was so proud of him. We've been up here since then and today we're making the six hour drive back home to Bakersfield. I hope James does just as well today. We will stay here just a few days and then we're headed BACK to my family's house on Saturday for birthday parties, hair appointments, and seeing friends. 

I live a really complicated life. Not really but I'm always back and forth between EVERYWHERE. 


Here's what we've been saying hello to... 

Hello to ordering my very first kimono. I've been dying for this and it finally came back in stock at The Oxford Trunk. I think they literally only put ONE back in stock because I purchased it instantly and then it was sold out. SCORE. 

Hello to take out breakfast from Mimi's Cafe. Mimi's are everywhere, right? I sure hope so because it's my favorite and everyone deserves to have one in their town. I always get the low fat fitness omelete. 200 calories, delicious, and packed full of protein. Yum. 

Hello to the new Petunia Pickle Bottom Fall 2013 line being released this Thursday. They are my VERY favorite and I'm slightly to very obsessed with them. The above bag will be coming home with me on Thursday as well as a few other of their goodies. Definitely check out the new line!! 

Hello to helping grandma in the kitchen and discovering you really have a thing for peppers. 

Hello to making cupcakes to bring to your husband and all his co workers. They love me. 

Hello to the sweetest words in the sweetest book I read James. I had to share this with you guys. 

Hello to the BEST little traveler. Hello to wearing grandpa's sponge bob slippers in the car while traveling and being oh so fashionable. 

Hello to gorgeous views of Red Rock Canyon on our drive. 

Hello to being reunited. #anditfeelssogood

That was basically our week in a nutshell. What are you saying hello to this week?


  1. I have never heard of Mimi's, but it sounds awesome! I love the spongebob slippers. :) Sorry you had to do so much driving, but I'm glad you had fun!

  2. I love that kimono and James is too cute!


    1. Thanks! And thanks for taking the time to stop by :)

  3. Love that kimono! This week, I said hello to my first visit to the Rose Bowl for the Jay Z & Justin Timberlake concert!

    1. So fun! A bunch of my friends went. They all loved nsync so of course they had to go. I've never been Into JT or rap music.. I'm a rock girl.. But it must have been crazy good and aweome at the Rose bowl!!!
