Home Sweet Home {Almost}

I can say FINALLY say that we are unpacked, organized {somewhat} and things are starting to feel like home {away from home}. I can't believe that we have been here for 2 weeks already. It's definitely taken some time to familiarize myself with a new place. I have relied 110% on my GPS to get me EVERY where and I am starting to get my bearings straight {I think}. I can already tell we are really going to like it here and not to mention, we are totally LOVING the weather!!! However, the entire first week we were here it rained CATS and DOGS!!! I don't mind the rain, though, especially when it's still 60 degrees. I won't lie, I really don't miss the cold weather!!!

Bryan has really been working hard and spent most of the weekend helping get the office put together and ready to move in to. The office is in Carlsbad {about 15 miles away} and he will start working from there tomorrow :( It's definitely going to be a change of pace {for the both of us}. For the past 8 months he has been working from home. I have loved it, but I know it'll be nice for him to not have all the distractions :)

Here are just a few things that we have been up to:

We heard there was a fabulous children's museum in Temecula {Pennypickles}, so we drove up there last weekend and spent the day there. Temecula is such a darling little town with fun restaurants and darling little shops and boutiques. The museum was so much fun. It was geared mainly for older kids, but Mia had a ball.


We have spent A LOT of time at the park........


......and of course THE BEACH!!!

We live about 10 minutes from the beach and enjoy going down there when the sun sets. It's so beautiful. Mia loves looking for seashells and throwing rocks into the ocean. If only it were warm enough to swim......soon, very soon!!!

It always takes time to adjust. I'm sure when your family and friends figures out how close you are to the beach you won't be able to keep them away! Best of luck! Mia is getting so big. I'm jealous of all her hair and the cute pig tails. She is almost 2 years old....yikes. That means Sophie will be 2 soon too.
