Mundane Mondays, Vol. XX: Updates & Pretty Gardens
Sunday, June 22, 2014
I know it's not Monday quite yet, but I have non-makeup/nail related things to discuss. Today's post contains some pretty pictures, some personal updates and a few housekeeping notes. A few weeks ago, I mentioned I was in the LA area. We spent one of the mornings at Huntington Library, which simply has one of the most beautiful grounds ever. If you ever get a chance to walk their gardens or have tea at the Rose Garden, I highly recommend it.
They also have a very lovely and extensive collection of tropical and desert cacti. It was scorching hot, so I didn't take many pictures of those. I did love all their succulents though, I've been working on my little succulent garden for a while now.
So right, onto the blog stuff.

The frequency of posts has been abysmal lately, I know. I have sorta exciting news though! We started the first time home-buying process! It's really tired me out so I've had a lot of Fibro flareups (I'm not keen on the word "flareup", I need to find a better term) lately. We've looked at quite a few houses but haven't found the perfect one for our family yet. There was one that was almost absolutely perfect - 5 bedroom/3bath on over half an acre with a pool and a basketball court... but there was an active railroad behind it, loud enough to vibrate your socks off. I was pretty crushed.
Anyways, I hope you all had an excellent weekend!
