Endless Summer

1-30-10-small-7


Just got back from a day at the beach. Life in SoCal is rough. ;-) The traffic was awful, so we stopped at a new beach (our usual one is pretty far away). It was awesome! We had the whole place to ourselves.

In case anyone's wondering, I consider this outfit "my uniform" - denim skirt, leggings, and my magenta top. I have the same shirt in blue, so sometimes when I'm feeling crazy I'll wear that shirt instead! Yes, I know I need to buy some new clothes.

We built sandcastles.

And buried ourselves in the sand.

Played at a fabulous playground.

Stopped at a cute restaurant and had lunch beachside. Stayed until sunset.

A day with my three favorite people. It doesn't get any better than this!

Just had to say that you are looking fab!! I think you are going to be down to your ideal weight before I am. I am in desperate need of new clothes too, but I am holding out for these last 10 pounds!

ok, so as much as I told Joe that LA couldn't be on our list of bases because house prices are just out of our reach I might really have to reconsider after reading your blog about the beach shortly after I had posted mine about snow...hmm! I'm jealous!! Send us warm weather!

How perfect! :) I especially love reading about your days like this one!

Yep, I'm with most of America that I have snow outside my window and am really missing the warm weather and rocky shores of my home town in the Bay Area. At least I can live vicariously through you. Btw, you definitely look like you've lost some weight since the last time you were in your "uniform"... looking fantastsic!

You really look great, Erika!!

And I love that first picture. That is one to save for when your little Paprika is getting ready to walk down the aisle...many, many, many years from now!!

It is so pretty there! I really love the pic of them walking to the beach. So sweet.

It is so hard to take the time for yourself or treat yourself when your a mom. But you deserve it! You should treat yourself to new clothes after you haved worked so hard losing all that weight!
