Friday Favorites #175

Happy Friday! As you read this I'm probably driving towards Yosemite. We're splitting up the drive time, since we live so far from Yosemite, we don't want to waste one of our camping days driving, so we split it up so we can arrive bright and early on our first camping day. Anyway....let's get onto Friday favorites.

In case you missed it this week, I actually recapped our vacation last week.

Monday: Northern California Recap Part 1
Tuesday: Northern Califonria Recap Part 2: San Fransisco
Wednesday: Soon To Be Favorite Fall Outfit

Friday We finally went school shopping, it was a tough decision.

Darn this picture turned out blurry, hate when that happens.

Then my brother came to town and we picked up Baby Fox from coding camp.

Then Mr. and my brother and the kids headed to the movies to see the new Teen Titans Go movie. I stayed home and returned a bunch of stuff...then my parents came over for dinner, they made tacos they were delicious. Saturday Mr., my brother and the kids walked down to the local Starbucks.

These kids are part monkey.

Afterwards, my brother and I took Baby Fox to Sparring class. There were a ton of kids there.

Then we came home and went swimming!

Then some BBQ steaks for dinner.

It was national s'mores day on Friday, so we had to celebrate (got too late to do it on the actual day).

Monday the kids were super lucky and a family friend took them to Disneyland! They had a blast.

They decided to stay for fireworks, which meant that Mr. and I got an unexpected date night! We made it down to Laguna Beach just in time for the sunset.

Perfect way to end the day.

I really want to buy know me and tulle skirts...for the price, I think I HAVE to have it.

This song is really old, but I just really like it. So beautiful.

This was an interesting watch about a girl who trained as an elite gymnasts, Olympic hopeful, but ultimately decided she wanted to find the love of the sport again.

I think Ariana Grande is so talented, I love when she does singing things like this to show off her talent. Confession time: I saw Titanic twice in the theaters when it came out, own the movie and watch it every time it comes on TV whether I have time for it or not. When I first got my iPod Touch (yep dating myself here), I put Titanic on it as my first movie to watch while working out...yep crying on the treadmill, even though I've seen this movie 500 times! Note to self, don't watch sad movies while working out.

Going To Be Favorite Fall Outfit

Hi Foxy Friends! If you are visiting from The Blended Blog, welcome! Thanks for stopping by! I would like to get credit as I really wanted to show you an actual outfit I got at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, but it's 95° out, and I still did it, cause it's for the blog!

This tunic is so freaking comfortable. It's soft and it looks like you are wearing two shirts, when in fact you are only wearing one...

I mean look how cute the back is! I should have moved my hair, you can see the end of a trail of buttons where my hair's super cute, trust me. Plus this comes in 5 other colors...I might have to get another one.

Necklace was made by my good friend and jewelry maker extraordinaire.

Now for the riding boots...They are SOOOO comfortable and have a plaid liner that's flannel like.

It comes in three colors too...I might have to get some more colors.

What's do you think your favorite thing for Fall is going to be? Anything I need to snatch up?

Northern California Vacation Recap Part 2: San Francisco

Hi Foxy Friends! I decided to break our vacation down into who we visited. So yesterday I recapped visiting with our friends and their kids in the San Jose, Montery, Half Moon Bay (yep we were driving all over the place) part of the trip. Today I'm going to recap our Sunday with friends that were our orthodontists. Yep we met them because Mr. and I got Invisalign and they were the ones that we went to. Well they were working in the office of the person we went to. We became really good friends and started having kids around the same time. Our oldest are 10 days apart. Okay enough background, let's get to it.

We decided to meet up with them at their house before deciding what to do...the kids hit it off not missing a beat, even though it's been 3 years since they've seen each other.

We decided to go to Dim Sum first. My kids had never had it, and mostly liked it. They tried everything, so there was that.

This girl a) is growing up too fast, she said she liked her straps off her shoulders...umm..that would be a big fat no little girl b) makes using chopsticks easy...haha! Cause everyone can look that graceful using chopsticks with two hands.

We decided to catch the ferry over to San Francisco, we made it just in time, as we were running to catch it!

It took about an hour to get there, with a few stops along the way.

Once we got off, we realized, it was way to busy at this stop and we should have gotten off at the one prior...

So we hopped on a bus (which was free because the machine was broken, go us) and took it back to the first ferry stop.

From there, our friends decided they wanted to take Mr. on a coffee tour, so we stopped at a place, can't remember the name to get a shot of expresso, at least that's what I think they did, I ended up taking 3 kids to the bathroom. They were all done by the time I got back.

The first place was in this pretty building.

Then we walked find another coffee shop, called Philz.

All the kids were so patient.

We decide we are going to walk to a was probably a mile away, it took us forever and a day to get half way there...

So we took a break and got some ice cream.

We finally made it to the park! It took us about 1.5 hours to get there, haha, but the kids ran around and had a blast!

While the dads sat and relaxed (hey the rhymed!)

As we are walking back, we decide it's best if we take the BART back to the ferry.

But not before we stop to get some sort of pastry, I can't remember what it was, really it was on the way to the BART.

So we've taken a car, a boat, a bus and now a train.

Made it back before the next ferry.

After we got back we headed back to their place for dinner and hanging out. After dinner we tried to recreate, this picture....

Baby Fox (on the left) was about 4 weeks old.

and this picture:

She didn't want to participate, this one was the cutest.

One last picture together before we leave.

Until next time! We had so much fun catching up and seeing their new house. I hadn't seen it before, so it was nice to see what they've been up to the last few years! We are not going to let that much time pass before we see each other again.
