The perfect weekend.

Derek and I went to Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs for the weekend to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary.  Derek had been working like crazy for the last few weeks, so a relaxing weekend was exactly what he (we) needed, and it was so great to enjoy it together.  We laid by the pool for most of the time, but we also treated ourselves to a suuuper relaxing couples massage…oh man was that ever amazing.  We will definitely be back to Ace – it was very much our style.  Everything’s decorated with a vintage, hand-picked flare, and nothing is without character.  Mmm.mmm.mmm.  Love it.

Also, we started a new tradition!  Since not only did Derek propose to me with photobooth strips, but we also had a photobooth at our wedding, we are going to take a photos in a photobooth each year on our anniversary!  Lucky for us, the Ace Hotel has an old black and white photobooth in their lobby.  Meant to be.

I’m pretty sure I’m more in love with Derek now than I ever have been before.  He’s the best I could ask for.

Tonight @thisisderekhansen and I went on an impromptu date to the bowling alley. Nothing like a Saturday night, bowling to a little Katy Perry music, with your man. It was a good night! Did a little lounging in the sun this afternoon. ☀️ Deliciously tasty brunch today with some dear friends at Superba Food & Bread. This week we found out some somewhat startling (but not bad) news...our baby girl is instead a BOY! As you can imagine, after thinking we are having a daughter for a month, and dreaming of that life, the shock we felt hearing we would instead be having a son! We are moving past it and putting the daughter dreams on hold for a while, and dreaming up new ones for our little boy! Excited to be welcoming a sweet boy into our home in a short 19 weeks! From our walk on the beach tonight. The belly at #20weeks! Half way there, folks! Today my dad, Derek and I have been doing a little building to make space for baby in our little bungalow. It's been really hot, but it sure is awesome having my amazing dad here to help us get things done we couldn't do alone. | Saw these beauties a few houses down while walking to get us some lunch. 😊 This weekend the @urbanic team went to learn to decorate cakes at @charmcitycakeswest and had the best time ever! This was my little cake - first time I've ever watercolor painted a cake before, that's for sure! And boy is this cake tasty! 🍰 The growing bump! #19weeks Can't believe we are almost half way there! Did a little photoshoot with my sweet nephew #judeemerson in his precious nursery for his 1 week birthday. So in love. #judeandfriends Got some goodies from the @riflepaperco sidewalk sale today!
