My husband got a new job a few weeks ago which I’m so happy about; however, he has to work some weekends and this weekend was the weekend that he had to work both Saturday and Sunday. The only time I got to see him was in the mornings until 1pm before he leaves; and since I didn’t have to work today I stayed up last night and waited for him and we ended up doing something that we use to do on a weekly basis at nights before he got this job.. go to IHOP. That has been our little thing to do for so many years now, we love IHOP and we especially love going there at nights. So last night I waited for him to get home almost at midnight and we drove to our favorite IHOP location and had a mini super late date.
I miss my husband like crazy though; I feel so lonely. Part of me likes it because I have more me time now but the other part of me hates it so much because I just want my best friend and the love of my life with me. I’m really hoping he doesn’t have to work next weekend so we can at least get two full days together to just enjoy ourselves and have fun.
My alarm went off at 5:30 this morning and I couldn’t remember shy in the world I set my alarm on for Sunday. Then it hit me… It’s Monday, you know what that means, back to work back to reality. I feel like i barely had a weekend. All I did was organize, clean, rearrange my room and have our cal ki f bed delivefed; which by the way Im so in love with. My husband and I have always had a queen size bed and have dreamed of one day getting a cal king and we finally did!!! We even ordered the Casper mattress which oh my goodness is so soft, that made it even more difficult to get out of bed this morning.
I am now ready for it to be Friday!!! How was your weekend?
Two weekends ago, I finally was able to do something that I have been wanting to do for a very long time… Get the keratin hair treatment! My hair is crazy after I shower; it’s fine for an hour or two if I leave it as is but then get super puffy, frizzy and uncontrollable! I have to straighten it on a daily basis and I have damaged my hair from it so much.
I found a Groupon for the keratin for only $89 here in LA and I looked up the yelp reviews on the salon and made an appointment.
I ended up getting my hair colored, cut and the treatment done all within less than 3 hours! I was able to finally wash my hair last night and oh my goodness… I’m in love! My hair is straight(90% still has a little bit of wavy at the back hair but I’m totally OK with it) soft and so not frizzy anymore! I love that I didn’t have to use the flat iron or a blow dryer to straighten my hair! I wish I had taken a before and after picture!
If you are debating whether or not to get it done, I highly recommend doing it… It’s like changing!!!
I don’t think I have ever mentioned on here that my husband and I are trying to get into photography; so on weekends now, we tend to go somewhere and work on our skills at taking pictures and just getting more familiar with our cameras. For now we are just doing photos of nature/places/etc; we will eventually love to start taking photos of people but for now this is what we are doing. This past weekend we decided to go to a place that we love… Hearst Castle! We first went there on our 3rd year anniversary and fell in love, and decided to go back and do our engagement photos there. It is about a 3.5 hour drive from where we live so we only went for the day. We have already done most of the tours so we knew we just wanted to get up there to take pictures so we bought a tour which you have to buy in order to enter the castle, and as soon as we were in, we ditched our group haha. I want to show you a few pictures that we took; of course I will post more on our Instagram account if you would like to follow us on there for future pictures.
Have you ever been to Hearst Castle? What was your experience like?
My husband had gotten tickets last year to go to the San diego zoo and we decided to go this past weekend, so we got a hotel for the weekend to make it a mini getaway! We were both so excited…on Friday I woke up sick 😡 which sucked but we couldn’t cancel the hotel since it was too late so we decided to go either way and just stay at the hotel (boy do I regret that decision!) we got to our hotel, the lafayette hotel in San Diego! My first expression of it was how neat and cool it was because it is a historical hotel after all, I loved all the sayings that they had on each door number…I would read it as I would walk by each room. Now here is the reason why it was such a disappointing weekend…we got there around do 11pm or so and I could not wait to get in bed and sleep (I’m sick and exhausted) well it turns out that the heater wasnt working which I didnt think would be such a big issue since husband and I love the cold weather. Well it was colder than I thought and even sleeping in a hoodie and blankets I was still cold so I woke up Saturday even more sick. We went down to grab breakfast and I informed the front desk that our heater wasn’t working and I need someone to fix it because I’m sick and don’t want to end up with pneumonia. Well no one ever went to fix it. We waited an hour or so after breakfast and tried to call and turns out our phone is broken. So I went back to the front desk at this point so pissed and complain how I have a fever, we’ve been waiting and no one has come up. So finally they send over extra blankets and a portable heater. Then I decided to take a shower…boy again wrong decision! The water was perfect for the first 30 seconds of me getting in; then the water would go from super duper hot to freezing within a matter of minutes and back again to super hot. I am as so annoyed! Sunday comes and we wake up to leave and I have all these bumps, they’re kind of like a bug bite but also look like blisters all over my right hand…it hurts and is so itchy!
And just like that, the weekend came to an end! It went by super fast and honestly it didn’t even feel like a weekend; mainly because I worked both Saturday and Sunday. Saturdays I work for my regular nanny family so of course I was there, then hubby and I had a double date planned with my cousin and her new boyfriend, we had a great time, ate a little too much though lol. Today I actually babysat for my last nanny family who I was with for 7 years, it was so great to see and hang out with the kids and even care for their new 3 month old baby brother. After wards hubby and I just went food shopping for the week…fun weekend right? lol Now I’m laying here trying to get my nausea to go away (I get nauseous whenever I take my multivitamins…I hate it) but I have my peppermint oil in my diffuser so thats helping! But its time for me to call it a night and go to bed to get some rest for work tomorrow!
