My parents give us a timeshare week in Mexico every year for Christmas. We usually trade it for some place in Southern California. This time we landed a bit of a dumpy place, but the location in Capistrano Beach was great and the view (pictured) was to die for. Rather, if you die it afforded a great place to dump the dead body.
Our place was close to the beach and we couldn't afford a babysitter so we just buried the kids.
I spoke at Church of the Open Door's Moms' group that my friend from UCLA, Lindsay Willmer, started.
Brian (Lindsay's husband) and I have been buds since UCLA, but I had not seen him or Lindsay in years. It was so great to catch up with them in person. Brian is a football coach at Azusa Pacific University.
We visited the cousins in San Diego.

We went to church in downtown L.A. at The Bridge at Union Church where our friend Tim Yee is the new pastor. His wife is one of my best friends since high school.
The day we drove home was Mother's Day. I chose this hole-in-the-wall Persian restaurant for our Mother's Day lunch. We took over the joint. And it was good.
Elijah got me this ring for Mother's Day. I totally thought it was real gold and diamonds until after three hours of wear when the gold turned bronze. Maybe it's a mood ring?
