Mr. Jude's Room

I have been meaning to post pictures of his room forever, but never got around to taking pictures and there's still a few things I want to do.  But I decided to go for it and show off the awesome bed that Tristan built for his little guy.  Everything in the room is things we already had except for the rug (purchased from CB2 with a gift card), the desk chair (from Ikea), the ceiling light (Ikea) and the brown floor pillow from Land of Nod.  The wood rolling bins we built ad I stained them and I bought the castors for them from Ikea.  I haven't bought bedding yet b/c really it doesn't show from the floor and I rarely make his bed b/c it's too difficult!  His room is pretty small and so we decided to build a loft style bed.  We found the one from Pottery Barn Teen and made it pretty similar.  Like I said, it is a work in progress right now, but one day I'll get around to the rest.

Some beats.

Listening to this right now while cleaning out the kitchen drawers, literally dancing eating a piece of cold leftover g-free homemade pizza.  Life is good :)

Summer Lovin'

It's been 100+ here the last few weeks and today it was 107 degrees.  Northern Cali is callin' our name louder and louder.  Three more weeks and we are counting down the days.  SO far, our plans are to pick up Eric from the airport in San Francisco the day after we get there.  His flight gets in from Thailand about 10:45 am so we'll get to hang out for the day there and then maybe stay with his sister in Napa later in the week and take a ferry back into the bay area.  We also plan on visiting Yosemite and camping, although the whole bear thing scares Tristan and Jude a bit.  I'm more worried about a bear sniffing out a lost french fry under a seat in our car and then having it smashed to pieces by the relentless bear trying to eat that french fry.  I have heard you can pee around your tent and vehicle and they will stay away.  Between the 4 of us I'm pretty sure we can conjour up enough pee to frighten a whole bear habitat away.  Actually I'm pretty sure Bella and I have that covered for the whole family.  The second week we are heading to southern Cali for some theme park fun and a few days at the beach.  We also would like to visit the HUGE flea market in Pasadena at the Rose Bowl.  Needless to say, I may not be coming back to Oklahoma.  Especially if it's 100 degrees!!!  

Some good friends of ours visited from the valley in south texas...

That black stuff is charred marshmellow NOT chocolate.  How she ate that I will never know!

Swimming.  Swimming.  Swimming.

Ellis+Terra+Dan, Tulsa Family Photographer

This sweet baby boy flew all the way here from DC this past week and I had the pleasure to spend the evening photographing him and his family.  I even had a super cute assistant!  I've know his mama for over 10 years and it was so good to finally meet this little guy.  It was 100 degrees outside and we were all dripping with sweat but that was nothing a little trip to Riverside splashing in the water couldn't fix.  Ellis LOVED the water and was super happy to be there even though it was way past his bedtime.  He has the most beautiful hair and eyes I've ever seen on a baby and is the perfect mix of his mom and dad.  Thanks guys, it was a blast even in the heat!

My cute little assistant who loves babies.
