Friday Roundup

Happy Friday! I hope you have a relaxing weekend ahead. As for me, I'm in the beginning of craziness. I'm a producer on a big project that's about a week away from filming! I'm very excited to be a part of it as it's something different than I've ever done before, it's a feature film! Well, a small independent one, but still. So, I'm sad to say that I'll be leaving the blog world for the next few weeks to be able to focus my energy on that project. Teresa will still be posting and I hope to pop back in to share updates if I can find the time.

This Tanya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan Museum is in someone's apartment and I want to to it!

Seattle Spotlight: Discovery Park

Seattle has a lot of great urban nature spaces but few can compete with Discovery Park in Magnolia. The three-mile loop within the park passes through forest, fields, sand, and cliffs along the Puget Sound. We LOVE going there with Mylo because it’s never overcrowded and he can run wild on the trails. Here are a few pictures of our walk there last Saturday, it was so nice to get outside and enjoy the fresh air after having been cooped up sick for a few weeks. Happy spring everyone!

DTLA Vintage Engagement Shoot

Jason and I had a lovely time doing engagement photos in Downtown LA with Anto and Tania this past weekend. We were thrilled that they rented a vintage Porche for the shoot.

When they explained their reasoning behind it, I realized it was all the more brilliant. Basically, since they don't have need for a car on their wedding day they thought it would be fun to incorporate it into their engagement photos. AND the best part is, we had plenty of time to shoot them in the car and really make use of it, rather than if they'd just rented it to drive away at the end of their wedding reception.

Packing For Our Big Trip

A couple of months ago Jenny posted her airplane essentials and now I'm going to hop on board with what I packed for our trip our recent trip to Argentina. Over the years I've learned that I don't like lugging around a huge suitcase and have gotten pretty good at packing light. For our 10 day trip in February both Patrick and I decided not to check bags since we had two layovers and were switching airlines along the way. Since we were heading on a city-focused vacation I figured I could just shop for anything that I forgot or didn't think to pack.

I brought mostly sample-sized versions of my beauty products that I was able to toss out and make room for treasures we picked up on our trip. Disclaimer: It is MUCH easier to pack light when going to a warm location! I brought only one pair of pants, one pair of leggings and one sweater (that I wore pretty much every night) and the rest was sun dresses, shorts/skirts, and light weight tops. I packed a pair of Converse, Birkenstocks, and gladiator sandals, which was the perfect amount of shoe options. Also, I’m obsessed with these bra’s (which I also wore all through pregnancy and breastfeeding) and wore my hat from Target pretty much every day. Since we stayed in three different hotels and took a domestic flight while we were there I was so glad to have just my small bag to carry around. It was a challenge to fit everything on our way home but we sacrificed a couple of books we’d already read and managed to squeeze it all in.

What are your packing tricks?? Jenny, would love to hear yours!

Music Video #tbt

Teresa's still sick. I've been fighting a cold all week too. Let me just say, it sucks to be sick when you're an adult. You can't just stay home from school and chill on the couch switching between music videos and Dr. Quinn reruns. Here's a video I would have been excited to have caught while flipping channels...
