 I went from New York to L.A.all in a week and it was fun to see the contrast. 
I love the size of it, I love the speed of the freeways, I love the malls, I love the the food, I LOVE the SUN, I love the museums, I loved it all.  These are just a few photos from my trip to
Newport Beach California. I went to In and Out  and Sprinkles Cupcakes enough times to make me gain a whopping 10lbs. But it was awesome. I loved it.

Things I'm Afraid to Tell You

A lot of bloggers are participating in this theme for a post this weekend and I thought it was really cool and interesting. I applaud their honesty and creativity.  The original idea comes from a blog called
 "Make Under My Life".
So Here are some Things I am afraid to tell you:)

  • I have no idea how much money is in our savings account, it could be $3,000 or $30,000, seriously, not a clue.  The really sad part is that I'm not even sure what bank the money is in but I'm pretty sure it's in a different one than my regular checking.  Oh, and I really don't even care...
  • I don't ever want to be good at cleaning.  One of my biggest goals in life is to make enough money to hire a cleaning lady and tip her really generously for her birthday and Christmas. And what I'm really afraid to tell you is that I have taken a muscle relaxer just to clean my boys bathroom.  But yes, it is that gross.
  • If I don't hold another baby again for 3 years I'll be o.k. with that.  I am still traumatized from having my own children, (my youngest is 4) the thought of holding someone elses overwhelms me.  Sometimes just looking at another baby stresses me out.
  • I take 1 sometimes 2 naps a day.
  • I haven't finished a book in over a year. They are too LONG!  I read 3-5 news magazines a week and I get impatient with books for not getting to the point. A magazine article can do it in 4 paragraphs, why does a book need 400 pages?!?!? It's a problem I know.  And not one that I'll ever share with my kids.
  • I am painfully insecure about how people see me. My hair looks AMAZING in the morning at the gym(because I sleep with it twited in a bun so when I wake up it is perfectly curled and full of body.) and I feel like the other women are judging me for it, thinking "she gets up early and does her hair to go to the gym" 
  • I am insecure about the way I look, the way my house looks and the way my kids look, I'm not sure I measure up the the general population.
  • 99% of the time, after I leave a lunch or something with my friends or family I think to myself "probably shouldn't have said that".

Mother's Day tea with Auri

It's my favorite day of the year!  My Mother's Day Tea at the pre-school.  We had tea, I got sung to, I got a plant and had scones. 
Mother's Day is fast becoming one of my favorite holidays.

Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful Mothers.
