So I know it's been a crazy long time since my last post, two months to be exact! What! I actually thought I would have had way more time on my hands then I ended up with. I even packed my new, and sadly still unused, photography equipment thinking I would be a traveling, blogging, superstar. But alas... No.
I packed up the car and I'm pretty sure I burned 1.5million calories doing it. Remember the whole two flights of stairs thing...

My only goal was to see out the rear view mirror. And while I started out with some serious doubts of that happening, I did prove that I'm something of a pack-master.
I made it to Cali in about 12 hours snacking on root veggie chips, almond flour cookies, strawberry coconut flour muffins, sausage, olives, and cucumber rounds. I found that we all would rather snack the entire way than have meals, so that's how we do.
We made it just in time to celebrate my Uncle John's 50th birthday! It was a blast! The night before the party, close family went out to Hibachi (and if you're friends with me on Facebook you will remember my not-quite-but-almost-coulda-been run-in with Gwen Stafani). Our evening looked somethin' like this:
|The Birthday Uncle and my beautiful Cousin Mic.|
|My Auntie and me (Points for posting a picture of me that I don't like haha)|
|The Hibachi(er) making onion volcanoes.|
|He did make me some pretty bomb calamari.|
|But then he started throwing shrimp at people. Some caught them with their mouths...|
|Others used their eyes.|
|It wasn't long before I became the DD. #sakebomb|
Well, I have an adorable little girl insisting I hold her so despite this post being unfinished, I'm going to go ahead and publish it now as "Part 1" so you guys don't have to suffer any longer without me... haha. Which reminds me...! When I logged in to blogger today, I had an awesome surprise... new followers and tons of pageviews. Thanks for stickin' with this slacker! ;)
