Despite the heat wave, it’s been a lovely weekend! A’s party went really well — we held it at Color Me Mine and it was by far the easiest kid’s party I’ve hosted in a while (THANK GOODNESS). She turned 10 last month, but we moved the party to May when no one was able to make the initial spring-break-adjacent date.
We had ~12 kids there, which was perfect. G and C had friends there (close family friends) AND having grandparents/aunt/cousin there added to the fun. Teen cousin was particularly helpful with G, though she did better with the painting activity than I thought!
Today thus far, I ran (yay!), we went to the pool, AND Josh’s parents brought over lunch from one of my favorite places (Grand Cafe in Hollywood for anyone curious!). Josh is at IKEA because why not . . . and we are going to build some shelves and organize the office area until we run out of energy which unfortunately will probably be soon. Ha.
Off to call MY mother (sent flowers but haven’t checked in yet!), plan the week, cook dinner (lemon coriander salmon + rice with zucchini + squash), and hopefully get the kids to bed on time. This is going to be a bit of a challenging week work-wise so I want to be fully ready.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers reading this!
