 Southern California is on storm watch as the first “real” storm of the season has arrived. I finally got to break out my wellies and I’ve decided I like weather for it’s wardrobe. We’ve gotten over 5 inches of rain last night alone and it continues to come down. We are all sick again (this time it even hit Josh), so it’s the perfect day to stay in and be cozy. Landyn is my little California baby and refuses boots and jackets, which the above photo proves. Even on rainy days though it’s still in the 60′s here, so it’s fair game.

I’m going to go enjoy the weekend with my loves. We’ve got our DVR on repeat. I’ll be back next week with more.

Have a great weekend.


Cool Days in So Cal

For the past few weeks, Southern California has experienced a cold front
with some rain,
and lots of clouds!
This family of 3 has remained indoors…
Doing a “little” less…
With lots of movies,
hot cocoa,
warm baths,
sweet treats,
Ugg Boots,
cuddle sesh’s…
And keeping with cozy cool days, my sponsor, Lilly Belle Designs, makes the most ADORABLE blankets to make for YOUR next cuddle sesh, just a little bit cuddlier.
Because what MOMMA wouldn’t want to cuddle with THIS?
Landyn has slept with her new blanket every night since it arrived. All their blankets are made in 3 layers: 100% designer cotton print, 100% cotton batting in the middle, and the softest, fluffiest cotton chenille on the back. Decorative topstitching added to match. CUTE Boy prints available too! Thank you Lilly Belle!

A winter’s day in the mommy hood

It’s been raining here non stop and something about the winter’s chill has me feeling thankful. I am about to spend my 2nd Christmas as a momma and it feels so good. I have a sweet girl that loves to give her momma and dada hugs and kisses, and let me tell you, there is nothing better in the world. 
Landyn and I spent the good majority of yesterday indoors trying to find as many activities as possible to entertain a very busy 16 month old. We tackled her closet and parted with the clothes she’s out grown. 
YES the 3-6 month old dress i’ve been holding onto is TOO SMALL!
I had a mommy moment, yes, one of those… 
How and when did she get so big? 
Oh and on a side note, have you tried THESE Trader Joe’s gingerbread men cookies? The best little treats I ever did have!

Mother Nature has answered

Well mother nature was listening because we woke up to crisp air and rain! Can you believe it? I was just venting about our 110 degree temps here and now we have rain! Has fall arrived? Landyn and I spent the day collecting our fall decor and enjoying the beauty of fresh dew on everything. The cinnamon sticks and gourds have entered the Lee house! Next up? Pumpkin Patch!
all bundled up
Enjoy this day my friends!
