A Wonderful Weekend

Sometimes I wonder what we all did before camera phones.... I feel like my memory wouldn't be so horrible if I had a slew of camera phone pictures to look through to jog my memory. Weird?

Anyway, as a blogger I'm constantly taking photo's of some pretty random things ( I would say only about 50% actually make it on the blog) and my phone keeps yelling at me because it's so full. My cloud storage is full too and I think I need to purchase some more space or back up my pictures but all that just sounds so time consuming! I do suppose having almost 3000 photo's on my phone is a bit excessive....

 Alright, enough rambling-- here are some of the pictures found on my trusty iPhone (and some from my mom's awesome Canon which I wish was mine) from this weekend!


Both my family and B's fam got together to BBQ and celebrate Father's Day! It was an awesome day full of food, swimming, children everywhere, and the HOT Arizona sun. 


My poor Dad and all his girls!!


My Family <3 


Just some standard play time with Charley and B... rolling around on the floor of course. Charley, by the way is getting quite large. She's up to 34lbs and growing rapidly! She also still thinks she's about half that size because she has absolutely no problem walking and/or sitting on me or squeezing herself into places that she clearly does not fit. Oh Charley.


No, this isn't a laundry pile it's new clothes. B and I decided to swing by Old Navy's sale this weekend and well, I guess the picture speaks for itself. A little overboard? Maybe... but we both got a ton of stuff for super cheap! Anyone else hit up this awesome sale? 


Lastly I had to throw in my new favorite flavor of Kombucha. The cosmic cranberry is just divine and I really wish I could afford to drink these every day, but at almost $4 a pop I think I would go broke. 

Today marks week 2 of James' program, more crazy circuits in my near future! Also, I just ordered an egg protein powder-- more on that later this week!

  1. You have a beautiful family!! I had a busy weekend too with my dad and family. We celebrated both Father's Day AND my Dad's 60th bday. Fun. Yes, crazy workout this morning but I am loving the challenge and steeping out of my comfort zone. I WISH I could've hit up that Old Navy sale. SUPER cute stuff!! I have that same Kombutcha sitting in my fridge waiting to be tried. I LOVE synergy and the green one. YUM.

  2. When we became parents, my husband and I had the same problem: full cell phone memories, full digital camera memories and full video camera memories. My office tech guy recommended an HP "simple save" external hard drive. LOVE it. I got a moderately sized model at Office Depot for $60 and, 2 years later, have barely put a dent in the memory capacity. You can buy more or less memory for more or less money. Use your cell's "mass storage" function to push everything onto your computer (select "delete after moving" so your phone is cleared in one step). Then plug the simple save into your computer and it automatically backs EVERYTHING up instantly, automatically. Then delete the pics of your computer (easy to do if you isolate everything you want backed up into a single folder on your desktop). The simple save software makes it easy to re-access media you've saved. Couldn't be happier with it!

    1. Great idea! I have an external hard drive, but I don't think it's the simple save one you mentioned... I'll look in to that! :)

  3. I LOVE Kombucha... I've been buying like 7 each week to get me through to the next grocery trip, but it's definitely expensive. I don't know how long I can keep the habit up. I think my new favorite is "bilberry" and my least favorite is that new green one, can't remember what it's called. Cute pup and great blog, look forward to reading more!

    1. Hi there! I try to save alcohol for special occasions, vacations, and holidays. If it's not one of those times I'll usually opt for a glass or two of red wine.

  5. What a lovely family you have. I have been taking pictures of my almost 7 months old daughter non stop as times passes I would like to remember the little and great adventures we shared together. I am sure she will love to see the pictures in years from now and I will be nostalgic of them then, oh motherhood!
    The following article about Kombucha will lead you to a homemade recipe I am dying to try. http://www.foodrenegade.com/kombucha-questions-answers/
    Hope it helps,

  6. I can't wait to hear what kind of egg protein you ordered! I can NOT live without Vitol vanilla egg protein!! It is my absolute favorite and is by far the best protein I've found for baking.

  8. Oh geez where are you buying kombucha for $4?? It's $2.99 in every store here and I thought that was high. Well now I really want one. I like that flavor too. My favorite is the trilogy with raspberry, ginger and lemon.

    I love the Ryvita coconut flavored one. They are very expensive though.
