On my bedside table: The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin; The Summer Wives by Beatriz Williams
On my TV: J and I started S6 of Game of Thrones last night. Getting so close to the end!

On my to do list: Continuing the birthday party planning. We’re getting there! I also need to check with whoever about class party coordinator (I signed up, but not sure if there are more directions, etc). Plus I need to connect with the twin’s accounts, deal with a dentist bill, cleanout my bookmarks/Bloglovin’ subscriptions, inventory the rest of the party supplies (random kitchen box), and start some blog posts.
Happening this week:
Monday - Playdate at a park
Tuesday - Tinkgergarten; Possible Harvey Oaks restaurant night
Wednesday - Playdate at a park
Thursday - RnR class; Downtown Abbey movie special screening
Friday - Early Explorers class at the zoo
Saturday - Nothing so far… Vala’s is open so maybe…
Sunday - Hamilton!!!! J and I are finally getting to see Hamilton. I’ve secured a babysitter and everything. I can’t wait!
What I am creating: I dove into Arthur’s 2018 PL album and am hoping to knock out a few spreads this week. I also am finalizing what I’m going to make for the birthday party. And I want to finish my August MP pages.
My simple pleasures: A cool breeze at night (seriously I sleep so much better!), a good aged Gouda, kids not talking for a few minutes, quick RSVPs (thank you awesome people!).
What I’m planning: The birthday party of course! We’ve scheduled it for October 12th and sent out the invites. Now to seriously nailing down all the details. Working on a menu. Got a huge pile of things bought (mostly decor and party supplies). J and I have our costumes mostly down. The boys have their themed shirts coming. I need to finish the menu, goody bags, and activities.
Looking around the house: I feel so much better when the kitchen/dining room is clean. The playroom is fine being a disaster, but crap all over my kitchen drives me batty. Hoping to do a bit of clothing cleanout this coming week.
Looking forward to: Hamilton!!!!! Seriously I’ve been wanting to go for forever, but tickets in the Bay were so difficult to acquire (to say nothing of the cost). I say online a few months back and scored some decent tickets for this coming weekend. The cost was a bit high, but it’s been on our list for so long, we decided to go for it.
From the camera: Riding the train by himself.
