Valentine's Picnic

Valentine's day is this weekend and I want nothing more than to lay on the grass, eat banh mi (vietnamese sandwiches), strawberries and sweets. And of course spend it with my little bebe'.

I've been daydreaming about spring/ summer picnics lately, pinning away inspo. The weather has been crazy warm here in california and I kinda' really love it.

Been hoarding some links, my bookmarks are getting out of control so here are my current favorites:

- How to roast a chicken. Roasted two chickens today, using this recipe. Highly recommended, was always too scared to roast a whole chicken but this recipe made it look so simple that I went ahead and tried it out. The chicken comes out so juicy, even the breast! Also, truss the chicken!

- Almond joy overnight oats. Sometimes I just want to wake up and have breakfast ready. It doesn't get better than coconut + chocolate.

- Healthy peanut butter fudge. Need to make these this weekend for when my sweet tooth kicks in. I Made healthy Reese's once and they were as good as the not so healthy ones you get at the grocery store. They kept great in the freezer and were great to satisfy the sugar cravings.

- Homemade mayo in two minutes. Made my own mayo while I was on whole30 last summer and it really is so simple! This video shows you exactly how to, in less than two minutes.

- Madewell's spring collection is so dreamy. 

- This birthday party is the cutest and looks like so much fun!

January In Pictures

Maximiliano: You are so excited for Easter. You love surprise eggs/ chocolate eggs. Last Easter you had a blast on our egg hunt so when you saw these eggs that I was storing under the bed, you asked if you could please take them out. Here you grouped them all by color and posed with them for a picture.

Maximiliano: This day we went on a little hike to the beach, well it wasn't so little. It took about 3 hours in total. You were such a trooper and walked 95% of the time. When we got down to the beach, on our way back to the car, we stopped every once in a while to throw rocks and look for sea shells. We also happened across this heart someone had made out of rocks.
