Trip to the Dentist

bekah General Leave a Comment

Ahh the dentist. I know, most people hate going. Just the word alone. DENTIST… Shudder. I don’t mind the dentist. Probably because I loved the dentist I grew up going to! Dr. Wise. He was the sweetest man in the world. He had a calm voice that instantly transported me to a tropical island. And the dental hygienists that worked …

Unexpected Encouragement

My mom, being the gift-giver that she is, brought over an adorable green onesie for Ty declaring, WHAT HAPPENS AT GRANDMA’S, STAYS AT GRANDMA’S, along with a treat for Tanner, a delectable snack in the form of chocolate for me, and I’m sure something else that I can’t recall at the moment… simply because her love language is gift-giving and …

Changes

Recently I found myself saying these three phrases way too often: “I’m tired.” “I’m done.” “I’m frustrated.” I was tired because I’m way too much of a night-owl, and Bryan and I often have our best talks {couch dates} til late, or, we are catch up on our favorite shows… does anyone else cry at every episode of Parenthood? 🙂 …

Chocolate Pots de Creme. Now tell me you didn’t just smile saying this, let alone, seeing the picture! This is one of my latest fave desserts to make. Super easy. Amazingly yum! And you can’t go wrong with any dessert eaten out of a cute ramekin… About a year ago, I found Le Creuset ramekins in my favorite apple green …

I have now had five days to pull myself together, process, and can now blog about Saturday night. The night we lost Tanner. Yes. We lost him. On Balboa Blvd. In Newport Beach. It was the world’s longest 15 minutes ever! Allow me to back up… I arrived at my brother’s new place that he and Jeniece will reside at …

Happy Half Birthday to Ty!

So cliche’ to say ‘where has the time gone?’ but in 6 months you have melted my heart. I love you, my lil’ hedgehog. I love that you smile with your eyes, and when being playful, your lil’ side smirk squishes your lips off-center, and at other times, when beyond happy, your mouth opens to an oversized O and remains …

Pretty Snobby!

I had a Pretty Woman moment today… no, I didn’t sing Prince in the tub, or attend a Polo match and stomp on the divots {although I did do that recently and it’s quite fabulous}. Bryan did not save me from a life of prostitution. But, Julia, I feel ya! Today I was you in the Rodeo store. Okay, it …

NOTHING makes me happier than hanging out with my hubby, my boys, fabulous friends, decorating, planning events or eating dessert. The ideal day would encompass all! So in honor of all the dessert-eating I do, I’m giving a lil’ shout-out love to my favorite dessert spots… You can’t go wrong at Claim Jumper’s…. ever! Our first year of marriage, we …
