Week five has come and gone, and ohmygosh, I am not ready to go back to the ‘real world’ (i.e. Texas). However, I do miss everyone like crazy, and cannot wait to hug all of my family and friends. This past week flew by in anticipation of one of my best friends, Kirby, arriving on Thursday. I managed to run every day this past week, clock between 13,000-20,000 steps every day, enjoy short hikes to the top of a nearby mountain in the mornings, continue my Illustrator 101 and Floral Arranging 101 classes, work on the blog (some fun giveaways coming up soon!), and spend lots of time with Sasha, Belle (our dog) and sweet Isla. We also hiked the 6 mi. trail of the Animas Mountain together for the first time – Sasha and I did it last Labor Day when we were visiting (see photos here).
As you can tell from the thousands of photos below, I love taking pictures of Isla’s cute face, because I know I won’t have as much time to once we are back in Houston (and because she cannot yet tell me to stop).
Isla being sassy in her Carter’s Romper (similar here) – that last face kills me – her personality is shining through
Pretty in pink (and white!)
Cheesin’ it up
Hot pink is my absolute favorite (similar bodysuit here)
Someone was none-too-pleased with us taking photos before she got to eat ‘lunch’
I swear this isn’t a hunger cue, Isla just adores her hands (praying this is ‘self soothing’!)
Kisses from her ‘Tata’ and (the much dreaded) tummy time (similar outfit here)
Saturday mornings are for PJs and superman time with dad
Her hair is seriously out of control, but I love it
Isla’s little Gap peplum top and leggings
This was taken after five minutes in her new heaven – i.e. the Skip Hop Treetop Friends Activity Gym… she’s enamored (this is a GREAT baby shower gift)
Loving the views from the top of the Animas Mountain – Isla loves the view from over my shoulder (her favorite holding position)
Vegan ice cream at Cream Bean Berry – my one true weakness!
Isla LOVES (eating) this lovie!
A sneak preview of my first homework assignment from Floral Arranging 101 (more to come tomorrow!)
Three weeks left! Have a great day. xo
