hii!

how are you guys ?! 

um talk about delish!!  I had such a fun weekend! we difinently got our share of playoff hockey this weekend! of course, watching all the games played on tv and went to a couple knights vs kings games .. sadly we didn't  win and now by the time I was able to write this and post it up we've been knocked out of the playoffs ... noooooo! I'm so bummed.. I thought we were going to go so far..  but the way the knights were playing , I guess they deserved to win. ( did I really just say that ? ) haha

in between our hockey escapades somehow we found time to enjoy ( enjoy is an understatement ) a little R&R. spoiled ourselves with all this amazing food! I have to say the waffles were probably some of the best ever! 

comment where I should go next!

have you been anywhere fun lately ?! I wanna hear!

throwback time! 

since baseball season is quickly approaching, i thought i would throw it back to when we went to game 6 of the world series!! we had such a great time! honestly, i think my favorite part of the game was the salted pretzel haha! we had seats wayyy up at the top and it was so crazy how high up we were! the view was amazing! it started to rain a little bit during the game, and i think that made the atmosphere even better! can't wait for the season to start! its gonna be fun!!!

good morning!

how are you?! today we went to surprise three very special people in an old colonial town on the east coast! if you know me, you know in not big on history.. haha but this was actually really interesting and it helped me envision how the people of the colonial times lived (which wasn't very easy). it was really cool to see people dressed up in the style of clothes from the 1800's, they really get into character! anyway, we walked around for a little bit, taking photos and enjoying the scenery. the horses in the last photo would pull the carriages all around the little town. totally different than seeing cars parked.. haha 

what era would you like to travel back to? mine would totally be the 1920's! 

enjoy your day!

hi everyone!

even though my birthday was over a week ago, i really wanted to share a few of these beautiful photos with you! i decided to head up to the mountains and enjoy a scenic drive with my family. the views were so amazing!! once we reached the top of the mountain, it was so chilly and totally had the feeling of cool, crisp fall air.. my favorite. one of my birthday presents was a vintage film camera called a brownie ( how cute is that name ?! ) i took a bunch of photos on it during the trip. its funny because i had just learned how to use the camera the same day, so i really hope the photos will turn out. ;-) haha !! more photos to come! stay tuned!

have a great day!

good morning everyone!

i know its been a whole YEAR since I've posted !! 

we just got back from a trip across the country, and let me say.. it was amazing. i didn't want it to end! i think we went through something like 10 or 15 states! i took a ton of photos that i will post this week. i also had my film camera and definitely have a lot of photos on it and i can't wait to have them developed. right now I'm just planning out what I'm going to do today. since I've been all cooped up from traveling, I'm thinking i will ride my bike to the grocery store, and pick up some ingredients to bake some flaky biscuits. i bought a second cast iron skillet while i was on the road. I'm really excited to keep adding to my kitchen collection. its pretty special to pick up little things while we're traveling, because they have more meaning.

anyway, I'm really happy to be posting again.

talk later,,

happy december 1st !!! 

can't believe theres only one month left of 2016! last week, we loaded up the horse trailer and took my baby Reoko to a new barn where he can have lots of land to run around on! I'm so happy for him! for years he's been working so hard to train and be the best he can be for shows, now he can just be a horse and finally relax! we were driving up and the weather forecast said it was supposed to rain all day!  when we arrived the rain hadn't started yet so he was able to explore the property and say hey to all his new friends, which was absolutely adorable to watch. after a few hours or so, it started pouring !! the grooms took him inside the barn so he was out of the rain. they brushed him off and gave him some dinner. so after we knew he was all settled in, we decided to get some warm food for ourselves! such an amazing day that i'll never forget.

i have some really great posts coming this week, stay tuned!

How beautiful are these flowers!?  

I'm just so in love with them! Today, my younger sister milahna, really wanted to check out this wholesale flower warehouse. We heard you can get great deals on flowers when you buy wholesale so , why not?! My sister is interested in making flower arrangements, and she's actually quite good! We got so many flowers and have them in vases everywhere! Ahah! Hopefully she'll get enough practice and then she can start selling them! How fun! I've missed talking with you all and am hoping to be back on track ! Much love !

Hiii! I just love being by the lake! It's so peaceful. I feel so comfortable being around nature, seeing cute little birds and squirrels 🙈. There is a trail that goes all the way around the lake so that's usually where we walk. Being in the city all the time makes you really appreciate nature parks and lakes . I like to keep my phone in the car and just enjoy being outside. If I want to take pictures, I'll bring my film camera or my digital. I hope your day is full of adventure and love!

Hi cuties!

Ok now I won't skip a post! I'm back home now! Yesterday we were traveling back home and I didn't have any wifi to post. Anyway, We went to china town on our last day in san francisco! I couldn't believe all the fresh fruit they had! It was so beautiful! :*) The streets were packed with people and there were so many different smells haha! I had been to china town a few years ago and there was this one store we absolutely loved! I couldn't believe we found it because all the shops look the same. When we went in, there were so many colorful chinese robes and clothes. My sister was so in love with them she got one! aha! I am definitely missing san fran already! All the restaurants, rail cars, and shops were so nice, I can't wait to go back!

Hii cuties !  

I had such a great day out and about today in San Francisco! We took the original rail cars around town ! It made me feel like a local and a little less touristy , standing on the side of the rail car, while heading to our destination;) . We took it to union square to look at all the pretty stores and got some lunch at this Italian restaurant ( it actually wasn't that good oops😳😅) ahah ! We pretty much made a day out at Union Square but in our way back we walked through fishermans wharf! There was this band of street preformers who were playing steel drums ! They were so amazing ! One of the drummers  was pretty cool, he asked me if I wanted to try playing the steel drum and I did it of course! I think I sounded pretty good but I don't think I'll be playing a Bob Marley song anytime soon hahah! Alright, well I'm getting really sleepy! Had a long and adventure filled day! Sweet dreams loves !

Heeyyy!

Ok so we've made it back to civilization! aha! I haven't had any wifi or phone reception at all during this whole trip! Its actually been so nice. This trip kinda turned into a nature retreat.. So refreshing. Today we drove from the northern most part of California to San Francisco. We just got back from dinner on the pier. Its funny because it started raining really hard and it was all on the windows and no one was looking at it     ( because it rains so much here) and we were just staring out the window enjoying it as much as we could. aha! I guess their just really used to it. Can you tell we don't get that much (none at all) rain in LA?? Soooo I have wifi from now on! Dont worry I won't abandon you guys anymore! I have so many pictures to show you all! Until tomorrow... yours truly.

Rainy Roadtrip

Hey everyone!  

Our Roadtrip is going great! It's so nice! The weather is perfect! It's in the 40s and rainy 😍. So cozy! I haven't had a chance to post until now. The service is hard to find around here, since we're in the forest! We're 10 miles from crossing the Oregon border, ( we're heading north). Can't wait to take some more pictures to show you guys! Might have another post tonight because the place where we're heading is pretty spectacular 😍🌧 ok talk later!
