levi's stadium field trip!


We had such a fun day last week at Scarlett's class field trip to Levi's Stadium. We spent the day learning about STEAM activities and how they relate to football. Scarlett and her classmates got to practice throwing footballs, running with drag affecting them, redesigning helmets and other equipment and having an all around blast. We even got to sneak onto the field on our way to lunch even though we weren't supposed to be there! So much fun! 









On the field!! 

















I had never been to the stadium before and I was so glad I got to chaperone the trip and see the 49ers Museum. If you're in the area, you should definitely check it out if you get the chance.

currently...


Woo hoo! Happy Friday! We made it through another week. Here's what I'm up to right now...

Reading - I just started Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman and I only have a few days to finish it before I have to return it to the library. Wish me luck! 

Anticipating - I just signed up for Allie Casazza's Declutter Like a Mother 30 day challenge and I'm so excited! I've been working on simplifying and getting rid of a lot of stuff for a while now, but I feel like I've hit a bit of a plateau. Hopefully this will motivate me to really buckle down and get everything feeling so much more simple and calm. 

Listening To - I totally binged Girlboss on Netflix last week and the soundtrack is so freakig good! 

Eating - Our refrigerator is packed full of leftovers from last week so we're going to be on a leftover kick for at least the next few days! 

Wishing - This past week has been pretty busy so I'm looking forward to a pretty chill weekend. Hopefully we'll get to just hang around the apartment and relax, maybe head to the park and have some bike riding time. Fingers crossed! 

I hope your week has been awesome. What are you up to?

my girl friday


On the last day of Spring Break, it was just Scarlett and me all day so we ended up on a Mommy/Daughter adventure!

We went out for donuts, hit the library and checked out some video games and kid's movies and took over the arcade at Golfland. We had such a fun morning - she even ended up taking an epic nap once we got home! It was probably a good thing since we had a sleepover with the cousins later that night. It was an awesome end to a busy and fun Spring Break week.

Day One - Pool time!





Day Two - Park time with friends!

Here's to another Spring Break success!
