We LOVE In-N-Out



Dan and I are big fans of In-N-Out Burger. 
I think everyone is really. 
Dan loves to order a Double Double animal style, fries well done, and a Neapolitan shake. 
I love to order a grilled cheese with extra tomato, a big Diet Coke, and I nibble on his fries. 

 
Roscoe and I met up with one of my dear friends for Roscoe's first visit to In-N-Out. 
I had to go out a few days ahead of his official visit to get him this onesie so he could look like a milkshake. 
I just had to. 



My friend and I had so much fun sharing In-N-Out with Roscoe. 
We ate grilled cheese sandwiches and shared stories about our lives. 
It feel so thankful to have had time to reconnect with dear friends.



Anyhow, I felt super guilty about introducing In-N-Out to Roscoe without Daniel. 
So we went to Five Guys this afternoon for a family date. 
It is not the same as In-N-Out but it was pretty good. 
We feel pretty lucky to have one in our little neighborhood. 
It sure does do in a pinch.

Do you have a favorite burger joint?
Dan is always on the hunt for a good burger. 
hugs,

Home


Home. 
I am so lucky to still have a home to go home to. 
My Mommy and Dad CJ still live in the home that I grew up in. 
It was so sweet for me to be able to introduce Roscoe to my little hometown in Southern California. 
I loved sitting out on the front lawn of my childhood home with my little man. 
I told him all about how I used to run around in the sprinklers with my brother and sisters in that front yard. 


This is my families little home in Monrovia. 
It makes me so happy.
When I arrived I was so surprised by the new paint job on the house. 
It looks so nice.
 

The day we arrived was my Daddy's birthday so we went to his favorite dono store to pick up some of his favorite dono's (bear claws) and we went to the cemetery to visit.


It is strange and comforting to be able to have so many memories attached to a place. 
So many places we visited brought back happy happy memories. 
It was a magical way to introduce Roscoe to his home away from home. 

Do you still have a home to go home too? 

love love,
Fritzi Marie

I have been overwhlemed with life since returning from our adventure. 
It is taking a while for me to catch up.
Tonight I plan to cuddle with my boys in bed while we watch a movie and eat popcorn. 
Sounds perfect.

I'm Wishing I Was Wishing



Dearies,

Hello sweet friends. 
Roscoe and I are back home in Alabama after our grand adventure to California and Arizona. 
We had the MOST fun but we are happy to be home with our Daniel and Bono Baby.
We actually have been home for about a week and I am still trying to get everything unpacked. 
Life does go on and I am forever grateful for the time I was able to get away and celebrate Mister Roscoe with my family and friends back home.
I want you all to know that I adore you. 
You mean the world to me. 

love and hugs,
Fritzi Marie

p.s. The wishing well was under construction when we visited Disneyland and it made us super sad.
We improvised and made wishes in the pond instead. 
Not the same.

Fire Engine Comeback


Dearies,

My little man Roscoe and I are still in California. 
We have been super busy visiting with family and friends. 
Roscoe has been going through some new "phases" as well and I am a bit worn out. 
But I am determined to not let lack of rest get me down. 
Tomorrow we are taking that little man to Disneyland which I am sure will be quite the adventure. 
Then we are off to Arizona to stay with my sister for a few days.
Soon we will be back in Alabama with our Daniel and Bono Baby. 

AnnaCas recently did my portrait and I am in LOVE with it. 
Her work is amazing. 
Just looking at this portrait reminds me that I will get through this time and feel more like myself one day soon. 
Even a new Mommy with a baby is a fire engine

love love,
Fritzi Marie
