jelly of a time.

this weekend had a nice balance of work and play. saturday was a full day of volunteering at the aquarium...standing on my feet for five hours straight making hats out of paper plates. it was supposed to be a kids' activity, but it proved to be too difficult for the little ones. i met up with the minis when i was done, grabbed some much needed sustenance at a nearby restaurant on the beach (view=good, food=not so good), let the minis take a dip in the ocean, and finally headed home. my body was so tired, i fell asleep by 9pm. sunday was a much more relaxing day. after the usually morning classes and errands,
we went to the pool and jacuzzi and swam until we turned
into raisins.

guys, i'm really struggling with finding time to take pictures. i've already used up all of my save-for-a-rainy-day drafts.
next week is swimming class sign-ups, and i'm hoping to find
a different day that will free up my sunday mornings again.
until then, you may see a sponsored post or two to help
fill the gaps. normal programming to resume shortly.

the jellyfish was our favorite.
so was this cute little girl.
let's hope we don't ever step on one of these urchins.

try this look:

That is the life of a working and busy mom. My days are so filled to the brim sometimes that I crash as soon as I hit the pillow. That's really cool you volunteer at the aquarium too. I love anything related to the water.

Your owl top and owl necklace are super fun! Heather

I totally understand how that is!! I'm heading into a busy time myself, and don't have time to "stock up" on images. I'm sure you understand too, it doesn't help that my photographer (husband) has a life to live of his own, haha. Well, we are always here -- even if times get busy. That's the beauty of the real blogging community. Love these shorts by the way and I have a similar ring!

This owl top is absolutely ADORABLE, love the owls!! So cute with those shorts :)
The aquarium is always so fun, but yeah being on your feet all day is hard

You are SUPER MOM! I truly admire all that you do for your kiddos Rebecca. You deserve mad props. I think we can take a backseat to you time or family time, no worries. Because when you are blogging, you are looking radiant as you do here. I looooove the jacket and how the blouse is longer than it. Also, we both sported mint bottoms today girl!

Your essence as a mom can be felt how you tell your story. A loving mom i could say. there are really hard times but so fulfilling and rewarding in the end. Glad you relax the next day, moms too need a break, right?:)

Nice outfit and I love how the pictures are taken on and off the blazer.

That's understandable; sometimes life and blogging aren't compatible ;-)
But I love this outfit, especially the owl top and necklace.

Let me tell you a story. My Junior prom was at the Long Beach Aquarium. When we got there, someone told me the jellyfish exhibit was closed. I was devastated. Early on in the night, I lost my date. For probably an hour or so. I couldn't find him anywhere. When I finally found him, and asked where he'd been, his response was: "Looking at the jellyfish."

Stella Lunardy said...

you look adorable:) I have the problem in managing my blogging time as well. I could do blogging like only one post each month-_-
