Hello friends!  It’s Monday and I woke up feeling it today.  I even made it to 5am Kaia, which hasn’t happened on a Monday in a long, long time.  The saying “A weekend well spent, brings a week of content” is so true!  There is just something about sitting on a beach with your people that is so incredibly relaxing.  Oh and I almost forgot, a marg in hand.  That helps a little too!

Hope you had a good one.  Here’s to the last week of March.  The temps are slowly but surly rising and I can smell Spring.  You can’t wipe the smile of this girls face!

 

Intentions for the week:

  • Dye Easter Eggs.  Remember the year I forgot and the Easter Bunny hid white eggs?
  • Pack an Easter Lunchbox
  • Sign Bay up for Dynamix summer camp
  • Send back all the ugly things I ordered last week
  • Design an Easter Crudite board
  • Share the PERFECT one-piece bathing suit
  • Upgrade the blog (so nerve-racking)
  • Pre-blog for Spring Break since I’ll be MIA
  • Finalize San Diego plans
  • Last but certainly not least, kill it at the gym ALL week

 

Last weeks Intentions: {weekend notes} 

 

Highlights from the weekend……

 

Bay Bakes.  Easter cupcakes.  I’ll be sharing her cute bunny ear cupcakes later this week.  Super cute for an Easter kid dessert.

New product.  I love anything by Kristin Ess.  Her products smell so yummy.  I have her shampoo + condition duo and dig them both.   Stay tuned on the Rose Gold Temporary Tent review.

Stinson Beach

We hit the road for our annual Stinson Beach trip.  I just love it here and don’t think I’ll ever stop coming back.  Two hour drive and you arrive in the quaint town of Stinson beach.  It’s a windy drive along HWY 1.  When you pull into town this is your view.  Miles of beach.  Dreamy!

We always stay at the Sandpiper.

We stayed in the Cottage.  With my sister and her family.  4 adults + 4 kids.  We could have even squeeze a couple more.  The largest room they offer.  A 2 bedroom/1 bath.  Full kitchen.  Gas fireplace.  Sleeps 8 peeps.  It’s perfect.

Obsessed with the beachy vibe + decor.

Bays favorite is the dutch door.  She asks if we can get one for our house every year 🙂

Isn’t the kitchen so cute?  Comes stocked with all the kitchen necessities.

Target Bunny Bags supplied by Gram!  This is the 3rd year Target has carried these adorable bags.  You can find them in the dollar spot…except they are $3!  Totally worth it though.

BIG thanks to my parents + Abarca Family + Fricke Family + Hostert Family for another successful Stinson Beach weekend.  Always a good time.  Laughing + making forever memories for not only us, but our kiddos.  Ones we’ll keep forever.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, there’s just something about this place that keeps me coming back.  See you in 2019 Stinson beach!

 

Pit stop at The Dead Fish for lunch
