For Mothers Day, Callan (with the help from her dad & grandma) gifted me with the cutest umbrella from Beachbrella!
Locally made in Laguna Beach, hand sewn and fade resistant so their fun colors are here to last, even though your summer tan won’t, these umbrellas are a summer essential.
Since me and Callan are always at the beach and in the sun, making sure we wear our sun screen and find shade is very important to me, so when I found out about the beach brella I feel in love. Who knew it could be so cute to protect your skin?!
There are tons of cute prints and patterns to choose from! You can shop them at any of your local Hobie surf shop or on their website here !
Last weekend, me and my family took a trip to Las Vegas and I told them we had to make a special stop along the way. When I told them where we were going, my mom said she had never even heard of the Seven Magic Mountains, also known as the big colorful stacked rocks on the way to Vegas. So, we started wondering what they meant and who put them there and all that good stuff. I did a little research and this is what I found out…
According to their website, internationally renowned Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone’s Seven Magic Mountains is a large-scale site-specific public art installation.
Comprised of seven towers of colorful, stacked boulders standing more than thirty feet high, Seven Magic Mountains is situated within the Ivanpah Valley adjacent to Sheep Mountain and the McCullough, Bird Spring, and Goodsprings ranges of mountains.
A creative expression of human presence in the desert, Seven Magic Mountains punctuates the Mojave with a poetic burst of form and color.
The Seven Magic Mountains are located near Jean Dry Lake and Interstate 15, approximately ten miles south of Las Vegas, Nevada. The exhibition opened May 11, 2016 and will be on view for two years.
You: Having full conversations about pretty much everything and saying the funniest stuff, cracking everyone up on the daily. Streaks just about every chance you can, running through the house chanting “nakey baby nakey baby”! You are always very concerned about any “ouchie” you see on yourself or anyone else and needs to treat it with lots of bandaides and kisses. Not to mention, you are is also very persistent with checkups to see how it’s healing, it’s actually very sweet. Jumping off everything you can, giving mom multiple heart attacks a day. Will greet people as they walk by with “hi, my names Cowin” everywhere we go. Obsessed with sticks and leaves, always have to have your hands full of em’ (I swear between all the sticks, leaves, and sand we collect from the beach, our car is always a disaster). Pretending to fish off the back of the couch is the fun new game, that and playing in grandmas pillows is hours of fun, seriously who needs toys? Is usually the first to reach out her hands to say grace when we sit down together for dinner and the loudest the say Amen at the end, throwing her hands up in the air (one of the best parts about our nighttime routine).
Me: Trying to decide if I want to keep growing my hair out or chop it again (leaning towards the chop, what do you think?). Getting antsy about our family’s upcoming Vegas trip (sans baby) because mamas ready to let loose for a weekend, can I get some praise hands my party people?! Got a new job at a gym so, forcing my toast lovin’, half & half drinking booty to sweat off some extra lbs I’ve added because well, swim suit season is upon us and Callans dinner of choose is Mac n’ Cheese… Been really into hats lately but no where to put them when they aren’t on my head so it’s kind of becoming an issue. On the lookout for a cute bike to cruise around on without breaking the bank, if anyone has any suggestions of where I could find one, let me know! Classes are out and seriously debating if I’m going to do another semester because I don’t know if I can go through another online coding or web security class without ripping my hair out. Thinking about some family vacays to go on this Summer, maybe even just a good ole fashion beach camping trip would be fun! Overall, feeling really good about how everything is going in life right now and excited about the future, whatever it has in store for us.
