Why can't every weekend be long?

I made an informed decision to stay out of all things Blog this weekend, and when I finally looked at my reader this morning I had 130 unread entries.

I spent Saturday night up in Chico, and as some sort of bizarro shift in the universe, it was a perfectly lovely 85 degrees. Meanwhile I hear it was hotter than that in back home, which just blows my mind. How can it be hotter there than in Chico? Not. Possible. Anyways it was really idyllic and gorgeous and I ended up having a lot of fun. I declared it a no-pants weekend, and spent the whole time in some of my favorite sundresses, going out dresses, etc.

I bought Gabey this dragon costume, except in red (which is EVEN cuter, if you can believe it):

Oh and Gabey's dad bought him these shoes, which are the most ridiculous (but also cute) shoes I've EVER seen. I just spent forever about 2 minutes (max) looking for them online, and I can't find them exactly.

Yesterday I went to the beach with Gabey, Megan and Mira. It was super pretty and super fun, and considering that it was Labor Day, it wasn't too crowded. I went boogie boarding for the first time in about 15 years (or, possibly, longer). Let me just tell you that while that's possibly the dorkiest activity in which one can indulge at the beach, I had forgotten how GENUINELY FUN it is. Like, a lot of fun. Unfortunately I was wearing my incredibly adorable Juicy Couture bathing suit (I know, what!?!), which isn't very practical as far as getting squashed by waves is concerned, so some people saw my boobs. Sorry!
When Gabriel pooped in a hole, that's when I knew it was time to go. We went to my parents' house for the rest of the day, except, winner here! I forgot our changes of clothes so we just had our beach stuff. Gabey has tons of stuff at my mom's house so he was fine. I ended up wearing this rejecto skirt, and a giant t-shirt of my dad's. Smokin' hot.
I'm taking Friday off for my birthday, making this just a 3-day workweek, and that COULD NOT be more exciting.


  1. sounds like a great weekend -- my nephew wore the red dragon last year ... and it is adorable.

    He wanted to be LAVA for Halloween -- not sure where he gets this stuff -- and my sister was ready to try to make him LAVA but then they found the dragon on sale and it was red like fire, she told him, and he accepted.

  2. I've tagged you in a meme dear. Please forgive me!


  3. I love those shoes, too cute! I didn't read anyone's blog over the weekend, thus catching up now.

    Glad you had a great holiday weekend...I hope you covered that hole with sand!
