New painting and spring flowers

Spring-colored cauliflower. πŸ’›πŸ’œπŸ’š
Happy spring! (cauliflower). I’m blogging today before Christopher descends upon us sometime this evening. I already took the dogs and baby out for our daily walk, now the baby is down for what I hope will be a loooooong nap because the last couple of days he’s only taking one nap a day. Oof.

The magnolia tree is beginning to blossom.
Here comes the magnolia tree! I’m hoping to get a few pictures of it in full blossom before the coastal winds whip all the petals off. It’s a beautiful tree.

Today's color: Aqua (thanks @richardquartley)
Feeeeling everything about this gorgeous aqua photo, spotted on IG.

Lucite grapes and Kate Moss (both still for sale). πŸ‡
Meanwhile, the Lucite grapes painting sits next to Kate Moss in the parlor. I’m thinking a mini painting of Lucite grapes might be fun.

Family walkies.
Out for family walkies. Look at that big fat baby! Not even three months old yet.

Spying on the neighbors.
These two always find something to bark at when I put him down for a nap. Kind of similar to how they would always bark every time I would take a daytime shower (a thing of the past!).

Switched to my springtime sunglasses. 🌸🌸🌸
My mother asked if I had abandoned my bangs already after she saw this photo. Nah, I just don’t see any point in “doing” them if my only activities are walking the dogs at the park and then breastfeeding allll dayyyy looooong. You understand. Sometimes I put eyeliner on, though. And I wear earrings every day. Trying! Trying!

White blossoms on our walk today.
Not sure what this beautiful white-blossomed tree is in my neighbor’s front yard, but I think it’s pretty pretty!

Beautiful sunset tonight.
Beautiful sunset out of the nursery window.

Flying baby alert!
Oh these two cuties. My mother bought him those leggings with the dino feet and I’m LOVING THEM. He has so many cute clothes (that he is rapidly outgrowing).

Think pink πŸ’–
‘member this heart Mandala? Still for sale. I knocked the price all the way down to 80$ sometime last year and then just kept it there.

New mini painting in my Etsy shop! "Love is a Glitter VW". πŸ’–πŸŒŸβœ¨βœ¨
New mini painting! This little baby is called “Love is a Glitter VW” and it’s available HERE! I love this one. Give it long enough around the house and I probably won’t sell it at all.

Gorgeous day out there! 🌞
Ahhhh Monday the weather was so glorious. I made it a point to get outside as much as possible.

Chomping on a strawberry popsicle and enjoying the sun with Bear Cub on Monday.
In the afternoon I ate a strawberry popsicle and romped with Bear Schnubs outside in the backyard a bit.

Bear Cub!
She’s always a happy Cub outside!

M.'s first trip to the beach was nearly foiled when Josh and I both got stuck in quicksand! Luckily we didn't lose shoes (or a baby). Siiiiiigh.
When Josh got home from work, we packed up the whole fam and drove over to a beach park that we hadn’t been to in a long time. It was M.’s first beach experience, and it almost went VERY BADLY because as Josh and I were strolling to the water’s edge, we both got stuck in quicksand! As you can see from the picture, Josh went in all the way up to his thighs. I went up to my knees, and after I made it out stood there with my heart stopped, watching Josh struggle to get free…all the while with the baby strapped to his chest. Luckily he didn’t fall, and we didn’t lose a shoe, but it was an overall SUCKY (ha ha) experience and now I don’t trust that beach anymore. Dammit.

Love rocks.
I did see a heart-shaped rock, though. That was nice.

Water dogs! πŸ’¦
Other than the quicksand, it was a pleasant experience. Maybe we learned a lesson here…don’t trust the shoreline. Especially when you have a baby attached to your body.

Graffiti in nature
I’ve always liked that particular graffiti: “Not all who wander are lost“.

Maude braids.
First attempt at Maude braids in a long time, yesterday. Today’s version went a little smoother.

πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’š
And that brings us to today’s monster butt! I’ll be back next week with pictures of our antics with Aunt Kissy. Always a good time!
