This and That


1. The boys got summer haircuts. Handsome dudes!

2. This episode of Freakonomics is really interesting.  What are your favorite podcasts? I really enjoy Freakonomics and This American Life.

3. The Golden State Warriors are NBA Champs and that makes our family very happy. It was a great season!

4. The boys started swim lessons this week. They both love the water and are having a blast.

5. Cars 3 comes out tomorrow and the boys are stoked!


1. Yesterday, was our nine year anniversary! Josh got me my favorite flowers and we celebrated with the boys at home. I love our life together.

2. Our house is all smiles this week because the Warriors are NBA Champs! YAY! Now, we are in a sports drought until football season. Sure, there is baseball on, but I really don’t get into baseball until the playoffs. I guess it is time to start House of Cards!

3. I love a good before and after.

4. I LOVED this book and I can’t wait for the movie. It comes out in August. If you haven’t read the book, hurry and read it because the book is almost always better than the movie.

  1. I did see Wonder Woman a couple of weeks ago with zero expectations, and I loved it! The actors are all great (you get to see Chris Pine with no clothes on ;)) and the fights are amazing.

  3. All the thumbs up for Wonder Woman! I recommend seeing it ASAP! And take your boys. I would call it completely family friendly!

  4. Happy Anniversary to you and Josh!  I love the boy’s pictures though Caleb looks so serious but so cute. 

  5. Happy Anniversary! And yum to the Key Lime Pie! I haven’t made your recipe in quite some time, that may go on menu this weekend…

    For masks I HIGHLY recommend the Beautycounter+ #3 Balancing Mask with Charcoal. Full disclosure, I am an educator with Beautycounter and would be happy to help you if you have questions about any of our safer products. We also makes a Brightening Mask+Vitamin C and a Plumping Mask+Peony but my favorite is the Charcoal because it really draws out impurities without stripping your skin and I can use it as a spot treatment too. And all the products in the Beautycounter line are safe (free from 1500+ harmful ingredients frequently found in personal care products) and highly effective.
