oh you have been here, checking on my blog and i have been a terrible person and not updating it. i could blame life getting busy or some other bs but really i just got annoyed with the wordpress app on my phone. but hey here i am with an update! oh and by the way i have been keeping up with daily OOTD posts over on Instagram so you can always see those even when i don’t update here.
it is “Autumn” in California. which really just means sometimes it get below 70 during the day and it gets as low as 60 at night! Brrrrr. i hope i get to wear the $10 boots i just got on Shoe Dazzle at least once.
so what have the Mochulskys been up to since September 12th? first of all i became an aunt! my brother and his wife gave birth to a baby boy in September on my Dad’s birthday. he is so adorable and he lives next door and i am so happy for them/happy that the girls have a cousin. Starkweather turned 1 1/2 and Grey got chunkier and taller. seriously she is 99% percentile for her height. people are always shocked when i tell them she isn’t even 5 months yet. she is huge! we as a family vowed to go on one family date a week which we have stuck to. and we are trying to make sure we go on one date night with just us every other week. it’s tough.
we carved pumpkins as a family and that was adorable and fun. there was drama next door with my mom’s neighbor and i heard a cop threaten to taser someone so that made for an exciting start to the evening. N is a chatterbox and has started using phrases not just random words. she told me she dropped her fork the other day so to me that just meant i can’t watch any M for mature TV in front of her anymore. damn it.
we have been at disneyland a lot and my sister & brother in law got passes too. N rode the carousel and didn’t have an emotional break down for the first time.
i chopped my hair off. well i didn’t. my brother did, in the garage with his wife’s sewing shears. so now i have this short bob that i am generally too lazy to style but sometimes it looks good. and i have accidental ombre so there is that. andrew is still commuting an hour each way to an awesome job that he loves. and he leaves so early so that he can be home by 4:30p so he has quality time with the girls. he is a really good human and father.
i joined a mom’s group and another one on meetup. so far i really like it. the group i joined is all mom’s that live in the same city as me and it has been so nice to talk to other parents who get what you are dealing with on a daily basis. if i miss something because E wouldn’t nap they get it. the other group i joined is lovely ladies but they have babies under 1 so it’s harder for me to interact because i have a toddler as well. we went to Pretend City in Irvine and that place is fucking amazing. it’s a kid wonderland, LITERALLY. i need to take them back ASAP.
i finished the girl’s halloween costumes and am going to do a separate post on those that will go up this week. i PROMISE. and will start uploading the OOTD posts again starting now.
