Well, it looks like more months that I originally planned have come and gone. I was planning on doing one of these posts each month but February slipped right on by and then March did too.... and then April did also! And here we are in May! Maybe I should start planning on doing these quarterly ;)

Celebrating // Mother's Day! Well I guess celebratED. Past tense. Yesterday.
Mother's Day was wonderful this year! We didn't do anything crazy or elaborate, but that's how I like it. The day started off with Seth letting me sleep in until 8am (all the praise hand emojis!) and then he and Mason bringing me breakfast in bed! I never get that so that was quite the treat. Then I hung out with them for a bit, opened my cards, ate some newly acquired See's Candy and then got ready to go meet my mother in law and sister in law for a massage. Let me tell you. THAT was wonderful. I think the last time I had a massage was LAST year Mother's Day so this was also quite the treat. We then stopped by See's Candy to pick up some last minute things and then I came home to take a shower and have lunch. Mason napped, Seth went grocery shopping, I blogged a little, and then we all went over to my mother in law's house for a bit before we met the rest of the family for dinner at Lazy Dog Cafe. It was the perfect ending to the weekend and a wonderful day spent celebrating all the moms!
Drinking // Green Smoothies. Specifically this peach pineapple green smoothie.
Eating // Salted Caramel Frozen Yogurt with Salted Caramel Sauce. From Yogurtland. OBSESSED.
Featured On // Stitch Fix's blog! Stitch Fix has a blog where they post Stitch Fixer's reviews of certain items. I got an email a couple weeks ago from Stitch Fix letting me know that I would be featured on April 25th, which I thought was really exciting! I definitely don't think of myself as a fashion blogger by any means so it was really an honor that they wanted to feature on of my pictures as well as what I had to say about a certain clothing item. If you want to check out my feature and see which item I'm highlighting, you can find it here.
Freaking Out // Because I thought I deleted all my photos from my computer. But it turns out, they were just "inaccessible for a while", or so the Apple guy said. So per his recommendation, I backed my whole computer up to an external hard drive (yep... had never done that before in all the years I've had it - oops!) and then updated my operating system and THEN synced my pictures back to Photos from the iCloud and bam! We're back in business. It only took about EIGHT hours to get all my pictures synced, so you know how freaked out I was when I thought I lost about 8 years worth of pictures, including all of Mason's life and our wedding. Thank you helpful Apple man!
Listening To // Noise by Kenny Chesney.
Obsessed With // Tulips and Salted Caramel Frozen Yogurt (as mentioned above). Not necessarily together, but I wouldn't be mad if I was enjoying both at the same time.
Reading // One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. Goodnight Moon. Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night? Pete the Cat : I Love My White Shoes. Pete the Cat Rockin' in my School Shoes. All per Mason's request, of course.
Thinking About // Mason's birthday. It's not until July but I am terribly bad at procrastinating (or terribly good I guess I should say?) and I know it will sneak up on me before I know it. I found this INSANELY cute shirt the other day while searching for something else that I want to get him and I know that will take time to order. I also think I want to forgo a party again (we did this for him last year), which I know is like a blogger sin, and take him to Disneyland or Legoland instead and incorporate an overnight stay at either the Disneyland Hotel (or one of the hotels there) or the Legoland Hotel (respectively). At this age, I'm all about experiences over parties. Plus, is the party really for him or for me? I don't think he'd even notice if he didn't have a party!
Watching // Angels Baseball. Now that baseball is back, it's pretty much all we watch at night!
And there you have it. That's what I've been up to! What have you been up to lately?
