Life Lately Via Instagram

Monday, May 19

April was such a busy month I spent most of May catching up. Blog posts have been non-existent the last few weeks for that reason and the last week has been spent taking my half a dozen pets to get their monthly checkups, vaccines and a neuter for the boys. Finishing up the two youngest this week and won't be this crazy for another year! I'm pretty sure my Vet's grand-children are going to college thanks to my zoo. ^_~

Here's a compilation of most of May through my Instagram posts.

Mother's Day Sunday was spent at the most relaxing place I know, the beach! Both my parents haven't been to the beach in decades so it was a really relaxing time for all of us. I got a cabana and had a cooler with dozens of sandwiches and drinks I spent the previous night preparing. She loved her gifts and her surprise picnic.

Last week SoCal got a little taste of what's to come this summer, temperatures in the hundreds! I'm sure many are aware of my love for anything and everything Disney and it seemed like the perfect place to hide from the heat.  Lines were 10 minutes long at the most so I got on Indiana Jones and Splash Mountain (two of my favorite rides) half a dozen times!

I've really enjoyed gardening this Spring and I've added a couple succulents and herbs (not pictured) to my garden.

 Two of my girls at the vet's waiting room. I may have tricked them by saying we were going for a walk.. ^_^  cheap trick but it's in their best interest.. 

The flowers are from brunch yesterday, Sunday. Last but not least what I'm currently reading. I've ordered a lot of books the last month from yet I'm years behind on my 'toread' and a couple of books behind on my Goodreads yearly challenge. I placed an order a couple of days ago but plan (you know how those go) to catch up and not buy for a while.

Once I receive the newest order I'll share in a post the books I've bought the last month to see if anything catches fellow readers' attention.  

Until next time..

Anniversary Weekend

Friday, May 2

Eight year ago, April 26, 2006, a special fellow asked me to be his girlfriend... I said yes.. (duh!) and last weekend we made our way to San Francisco to celebrate eight wonderful years together.

I always get asked if we have kids (why not?) and if we're married and they get this depressed look when I answer no to both those things. God forbid two people be together this long because they both want to not because something else ties them to each other..

I believe in kids after marriage. I believe in really planning and being ready (physically/financially) for kids. I believe in building a strong foundation first. Lastly, I believe I'm young and this is the time to be selfish so I'm not an embarrassing 40 year old mom trying to recapture my youth! ^_~

Things will change and not go as planned, I'm aware life goes like that. But that's the point of this blog, to look back on; maybe you were right, maybe you were wrong and maybe you were full of shit!

Now back to the point of this post.. I'm not mushy but I did write a sort of sweet Instagram post for my fellow..

I had gathered a list of spots (thanks Yelp!) that I wanted us to try and go to so we could avoid the major touristy places and eateries.  We spent half per meal in comparison and the food was 1000% better!

We had brunch at on the infamous (streets) Haight and Ashbury. Window shopped and ran into some guy giving away kittens...
