Well this is embarrassing; ANYWHO, Life for the past few months.

I last posted on Dec 15th.

It’s now Feb 23rd.

2017.

Nervous cough.

ANYWHOO; moving right along.

Life’s been good. It’s been nice to be relaxing and living and feeling better. We had a new years eve party at our house, just a small one, which was fun. The weeks kinds blur between thanksgiving and new years huh?!

We headed to Australia mid Jan to get some baby squeezes in cause Y’ALL I GOT A NEW NIECE.

SHE’S SO BEAUTIFUL.

She was born Jan 11th. And a few days after we headed out to meet her.

*Cue the huge amount of photos*

Aus was, as always, amazing and fun and way to short a trip. Catching up, squeezing kiddos, nights out, Sleep overs with Nieces, and first days of pre school and family pictures. See below.

We headed out of LAX while it was raining and freezing and 40, and landed at 9am in humid, sticky 95. Seth almost died.

Actually he almost died twice in the first day. Once when we landed and the other when he found out my parents DO NOT have AC, and the only spare fan was actually a heater that had fan element and was the size of a radio. Poor kid never saw it coming.

We’re back at home now and into trying to FINALLY finish the house. I laugh that I told myself it would take 2 weeks.. HAHAHA*SOB*.

This year I am going to try and work on being better about posting, but posting things of value and not just rambles. Hopefully I’ll get my new year thoughts and goals up here soon and some other stuff.

*HOW did I go this long, my stars*

Cue awkward stage exit.

A surprise day with the ‘Rents. HURRAH.

So, my lovely parents had been in North America & Canada for a few weeks but I was not going to be able to see them.

We tried to make it happen, a few times and a few ways, but it wasn’t working out.

I was pretty bummed, and so were they.

And then I got this text late saturday.

By some amazingness, there were HUGE storms in Canada that cancelled all their flights and delayed travel.

Which made them have to re route their flights home.

Which made them end up in LA.

Which made them just TWO HOURS from my house, for a day.

 

*Cue excited face and happy times*

We raced up to LAX early sunday morning and got them and headed out to Santa Monica for lunch and a walk along the beach before dropping them back off for the flight home.

And it was JUST the best.

It was so so super special.

I know you all living up in Canada might not have loved the storms, but I sure did.

Yay for surprise visits, mumma hugs and strolls with ya dad. They made this little heart happy.

WA South Coast Adventures: Margaret River & Fremantle

If you missed the first few days of our adventures head here to catch up!

So after leaving Busselton we headed down south to Margaret River. Which was, probably, our most favorite place!
On the way down, we stopped in at a Cave. Now. For those who don’t know  me, this might not be a big thing. But, I am terrified of caves. Like. Loathe them. However, Seth wanted to go, and the guide assured me “Its not that far down, and not very long.. its actually quite open”.
Dunno were that guide was talking about but it sure wasn’t that cave. It was dark and small and VERY far down. And I got stuck behind very slow group of people on the single lane stair case trying to get out and almost died. Well. I didn’t. But I didn’t remain the calmest person in the world. SO unlike me.

The cave was actually beautiful. So amazing how these little rocks grow and form & how pretty they actually are.

After our caving adventures, we continued on to MR. The place we stayed was beautiful! A vintage hotel from the 1800’s and just SO victorian. Just Stunning.

We wandered around and shopped a little the first afternoon. The little town is super cute and quaint, and pretty alternative, which I love.

The next day was our winery day. MR is know for its amazing wines and little vineyards & we headed out to a few of them. We had the BEST time, and also discovered how much we LOVE little wineries. Haha. They are just so nice and relaxing and charming. How could you not love this..

We did check out a few chocolate places as well.. And just had to swing in to this place too.. Actually, we went there more than once;)

The rest of the days down there were spent at famers markets, wandering the little town and at the many good coffee shops. I’m sorry USA but you coffee ain’t got nothing compared to the coffee in Aus. Really.

Heading back up the coast we stopped in at a few more places and beaches before heading to Fremantle for our last night. Freo was awesome. We wander along the streets, stopped in at all the sights and just had an awesome day exploring. We found these really cool summer night food markets and walked down to have a look. They were awesome. And had this amazing coconut ice cream stall. It was bliss.

We did the markets, the walks and even met up with these lovelies for the afternoon.

Sadly, Like always, it went way way to fast.. and later that night headed back to Perth to fly out.
We loved every second & had the best time seeing old friends, making new ones and celebrating this lovely couple!!
