spring-like weather, happy birthday ewan, rock climbing

we had the most beautiful january weekend. temps were in the mid 50s and the sun was shining for multiple days in a row! ha. this winter feels a lot like our first winter here. it hasn't gotten too cold (around freezing a handful of mornings), no snow, some breaks from the rain. it's my fourth winter here and it still doesn't fail to amaze me! 

this is unrelated, but last week i got this email, which was exciting! honestly my payments had been down to $55/month for quite a while, but it feels good to know my college education is totally paid off now! 


we had a busy weekend too! friday night, not so much, but that's pretty typical. saturday we hung out at home for most of the day, but azalea and i took a trip to bartells and the library. i've really been trying to step up my reading game this year. last year i think i read around 20 books, but i'd like to up it to 25-30 this year. in the afternoon, we took the kids up to the school/field with their bikes: 



sunday morning we headed to the zoo for ewan's 5th birthday party. vanessa invited our family and one other family to hang out at the zoo for a couple hours and then head to "zeek's pizza" a few blocks away for lunch and cake. the kids had a lot of fun. it was a bright, chilly morning at the zoo, much better than rain. at the restaurant we had pizza, salad, and a batman cake. 




immediately after the party, we headed to REI because the kids were signed up for a rock climbing class. thatcher saw it on their site on black friday and both kids were old enough, so we thought it would be fun. azalea has rock climbed once before for a birthday party. ashford was a little skeptical going into it, but he ended up having fun. all the parents stayed for the class, so we got to see them climb. 



this is about as high as they got before wanting to come down :) 

we ended the day (and the weekend) with a trip to "the boars nest" for bbq dinner. 

happy monday!

hello 2019! bike riding, minecraft lego camp, bellingham

the first week of 2019 was a good one. backing up to new years eve, we went to our friends chrissy, zach, and eli's for an (early evening) celebration. we ordered thai take out, drank champagne and the kids ran around and played some games. it was low-key and perfect. we left their house at 9pm when the kids started to get tired. and i was in bed before 11 :) 


thatcher was off new years day. we hung out at home for the morning, took down our christmas decorations and cleaned. it always makes me a little sad, but i love having a clean space to kick off the new year.


 after lunch, i walked down to market street to "kick it boutique" because they were having their annual new years sale. it has become a tradition for me since living here. i love the store, but the clothes are a little more expensive than i prefer to spend, so i only buy stuff there when they have their sale. when i got home, we took ashford up to the ball field to try out his new two wheel bike and he mastered riding it right away. i was so impressed! i guess the balance bike he had previously paid off. he is very excited about his new skill: 


that night we watched the second harry potter movie because thatcher and azalea finished the second book. they have now moved onto book 3. 

wednesday thatcher was back at work and the kids had their first day of minecraft lego camp! we've never done a winter break camp before but thatcher found this one at the green lake community center that was just 3 mornings and for 5-7 year olds, which meant they could take it together! they had a great first day and i got some work done at "the inc" (which was less than a 5 minute drive) and fit in a trip to target. vanessa and ewan came over in the afternoon for a play date. 

thursday morning the kids had their camp and i came home to work and go grocery shopping. we stopped at mcdonald's on the way home for lunch for them and ran into our friends beth, audrey, and eliza. the kids were thrilled to have playmates for the playland. we went to the queen anne library to get new books and to check out the winter craft party. it was a good way to kill a couple hours. 

friday was the last morning of camp. it was the most beautiful sunny morning at green lake:


i decided to work from a nearby coffee shop that my friend vanessa recommended. it's called "retreat" and it was the most dreamy spot! i'll definitely be back! 


after camp, we headed to the zoo to meet our friends casey, ella-kate, and julie. the kids ran around in the zoomasium and casey and i got to catch up. 

that night, thatcher assembled our new headboard that got delivered. i have wanted a headboard for our bed for over a decade, so thatcher told me i could pick one out for christmas. so fun! i love it, and our bedroom feel so "grown up" now! 


saturday we decided to take a day trip to bellingham. we hadn't been in close to a year and it's a beautiful drive and fun city to explore. we did chucknut drive on the way in and out of the city and the views never disappoint. 


it was lunch time when we arrived, so we went to "fiamma burger" in the downtown, which we've been to a couple times before.


 then we walked to a model train exhibit (i laugh when i think about how many trains museums we have been to in minnesota and washington). it was good for killing time! 



next we went somewhere hadn't been to before, boulevard park. it was right on the water, had a nice new playground, a beach, and a coffee shop. jackpot! we enjoyed all the amenities before hopping in the car to drive back to seattle. 




sunday was a low-key day before the regular back to school/work week starts up. i joined a gym in our neighborhood on new years day because i have not worked out regularly since before having kids and it was time. so i  had a consultation with a personal trainer (included when you sign up). he was really nice and helpful, but was trying to sell me a training package, which i don't really want to do. i just want to get access to the cardio machines and light weights. my goal is to go 2-3 times a week. i'll let you know how it's going in a few weeks ;) 

we ran some errands and mostly hung out at home the rest of the day. for dinner we made home made pizza and i made myself prosciutto and arugula. the recipe i used called for tossing the arugula in lemon juice and it made the pizza. it was so delicious! 


now the kids are back to school after 16 days off. here's to routines!

the last of 2018: more winter break happenings

our final week of 2018 was a good one. thatcher went back to work on the 26th, so it was just the kids and me for a few days. after a nice couple days laying around the house over the christmas, we were ready to get out! 

on wednesday, i took them to see "ralph breaks the internet" at the theater in our neighborhood. it was a really cute movie - we all enjoyed it!  


on thursday, we went to "the inc" in the morning. ashford went to the preschool room and azalea hung out with me while i got some work done. we also took a trip to target. in the afternoon, we met vanessa and ewan at the zoo. we looked at a few animals and spent a good chunk of time in the zoomasium where it was warm :) 

on friday, the kids and i hopped on the bus to go downtown to visit thatcher. 


he met us at zeitgeist coffee for a treat and then we all went to his office to say hi to the (few) people who were there. they always enjoy seeing/meeting the kids. 


thatcher had a meeting to attend, so we ventured off on our own for the rest of the day. we went back into the core of downtown and rode the holiday carousel at westlake park. well, azalea rode it. ashford didn't want to ;) it was raining pretty hard, but at least it was covered. 


then we walked to the sheraton hotel where they have the annual gingerbread village. the theme was "whoville" and the grinch. i went last year with azalea and we were able to walk right in. this year was a different story. there was a fairly long line when we got into the lobby, but i figured it would maybe take 30 minutes to get through. after waiting 10-15 minutes it was clear it was going to be much longer than that...but were were feeling committed at that point, so we continued to wait. it ended up taking an hour and 20 minutes! omg. i would not have stayed if i knew it would be that long from the start. the kids did remarkably well waiting. they had lots of moments of squirreliness, but it was manageable. the houses were very cool to look at, but not worth an hour and 20 min wait. oy! 



it was after 1pm when we finished, so we were hungry! we walked over to pike place market to get some lunch. we went to "the athenian" restaurant. i've been there many time before and it's always a great experience. good food, good service, nice views. the kids and i had a great lunch together. i'm starting to feel like i'm dining out with big kids these days. how did that happen?! we were all pretty tired after our downtown adventures, so we headed home on the bus. 

saturday we pretty much stayed home all day aside from getting groceries and thatcher buying a new coat. 

sunday morning we hung out at home, then in the afternoon we met our friends chrissy, zach, and eli at the pacific science center. it was fun to hang out with them and the kids had a good time.



 here is azalea modeling her new unicorn hoodie before we left. in case you didn't know, unicorns are very "in" with elementary school girls these days: 


when we left the science center there was a beautiful rainbow right behind the space needle: 


monday was new years eve. thatcher went to work. i woke up with a super sore throat, so i didn't feel like doing much. one of ashford's buddies from preschool's mom invited him over for a play date. while he was gone,  i took azalea to java bean and we played at home. on the way back from picking up ashford, we ended up playing at the playground for almost an hour. it was chilly but sunny! thatcher came home early from work, which was nice. tonight we are going to our friends chrissy, zach, and eli's house to have takeout for dinner and i'm pretty sure we'll be home by 8:30pm :) 

happy new year to you!

2018: that's a wrap

here we are, just days away from 2019. why is it that the older you get, the faster a year goes by? when i was a kid, i used to think it was so weird how adults would talk about things that happened 20 years earlier like it was 5 minutes ago, but now i totally get it! i have to say, 2018 was a good one: another year in seattle, our last year before we have two kids in elementary school. let's take a trip down memory lane, just like the last 8 years: 

2010  |  2011  |  2012  |  2013 |  2014 |  2015 |  2016 |  2017

2019...here we go!

2018 christmas celebrations

another christmas has come and gone. but never fear - i'm gonna hold onto the last of the holiday magic until new years day when we will take down our tree. of course i much prefer the excitement on the pre-side of christmas, but i'm not letting go quite yet! we had a nice, super low key holiday with just the four of us. it can get a little long and anti-climactic with no where to be, but we made the best of it. 

christmas eve morning i got some last minute groceries for our various feasts and thatcher took the kids out on an errand *cough* last minute gift shopping ;) it included a trip to mighty o's which was almost sold out of donuts at 10:00am. in the afternoon, we baked cookies for santa. i had been wanting to make peanut butter blossoms all month, and i finally got the chance! they turned out delicious and i've been eating way too many: 


when it got dark out, azalea and i drove up to the olympic manor neighborhood to check out their famous decorations. almost every house goes above and beyond with lights and decorations, it's really fun to see. lots of other people had the same idea and were strolling the sidewalks with us.


 thatcher and the kids played some minecraft while i worked on dinner and set the table. i even got a table cloth for our little table this year. i feel like a grown up!


we had an appetizery dinner: pulled pork, baked mac and cheese, bruschetta, smoked salmon, cheese and crackers, and roasted carrots. and cookies/leftover birthday cake for dessert :) 

we skyped with my extended family in minnesota, with uncle anders and aunt nith in laos, and talked to thatcher's parents on the phone. the kids did the last day of their lego advent calendar. we let the kids each open two gifts before bed: one from us and one from a grandparent. they were giddy with excitement. 


then we got our official santa plate/glass out and filled it with cookies for santa and carrots for the reindeer. and azalea wrote santa a note. it said "santa, i have tried to be good it's ok." i couldn't stop giggling. 


thatcher and i watched "christmas with a view" on netflix and then it was off to bed so santa could get to work! 

we told azalea no getting up until 7:15am. she woke up at 6:45, but i made her stay in bed for a while. the kids were giddy with excitement when they got up. this year santa brought azalea a barbie car and ashford a remote control car. they both got hats/gloves, a crystal growing kit, and various stocking stuffers. 



after the santa excitement, we made french toast, roasted potatoes, and bacon for breakfast. then we opened the rest of our gifts. 


thatcher made me this beautiful collage of family pictures from this year. i love it! 


the kids played with their new toys for a lot of the day. we watched "home alone 2" in the afternoon and thatcher baked more cookies. ha! we made lasagna for dinner. we made it last year too - it might become a new tradition! 

i hope you had a wonderful couple days with those you love! here is our 2018 holiday card: 


 the kids are off school for the next week and a half, so wish me luck filling our time ;)
