I’ll be honest folks, it’s been a week and I am just slightly overwhelmed, but in as good of a way as overwhelmed can be. I guess. I hope you don’t mind me being brief today, as I have a baby to nurse and Syd’s speech therapy appointment in 10 minutes (!). I hope you all have a great weekend, and in the mean time, here’s a few tidbits of things I’m dreaming of and wishing for, and really loving.

– Art and I booked our first post-Hayden get away at the Ojai Ranch Inn. It’s just one night and it’s only $89 per night, and I’m ridiculously excited.

– The kids and I spent the entire day and night at Crystal Cove yesterday, and I was reminded just how dreamy that place is, now that I can swim in the ocean sans baby in my belly. Here’s a recap I wrote last year on this magical beach, in case you’re in the mood to visit: for the love of Crystal Cove

– I just finished Where’d You Go Bernadette? and it was hilarious, witty and thoughtful. A great summer read I can’t recommend enough.

– New accounts (to me) to love on Instagram: pugly pixel & danniremender & madebylon

– Who says boy’s clothes have to be dull and boring, and full of plaid and motorcross trucks? Polarn O. Pyret shopping for boys (and girls)

– I’ve started to grow quite fond of my one-pieces, and I’ve heard the suits from Lands End are quite good. I’m sort of loving this one in Oak Moss and it’s 30% off. And Brooke White posted herself wearing this cute polka dot number from Albion Fit and it looked so cute.

    ooooh those kids clothes are ADORABLE. I see myself picking up a few pieces for A when it comes school time!

  • We found out about Crystal Cove a few months ago, but it’s still slightly perplexing where to park. We ended up parking further south toward Laguna and walking through a tunnel to a gorgeous beach. It wasn’t near the restaurant/etc., though. Are there are a lot of stairs to get down that way, or does the shuttle drop you pretty close to the actual beach?

    I’ve GOT to read Bernadette. I’m hearing nothing but raves about it.

    Also, loving your posts on Babble. You’re rocking it, lady!
