Where do I even start? This past week in California was great, my cousin Raquel graduated from high school (she will be a Wisconsin Badger next year)! I can't believe she is already going to be in college, I remember when my Nina was pregnant and when Raquel was just a baby, and now she is all grown up into a beautiful young lady.
California consisted of lazy mornings full of coffee and family, shopping trips, and good food! The weather was colder than what I was hoping for, overall it was so nice to spend time with my family.

We arrived Wednesday night, settled in and got a good nights rest. Thursday my mom took me to my first trip to Ikea! Being that I am on a limited (very limited) budget I was very excited to see such affordable furniture, too bad we didn't drive. But that didn't leave me empty handed, I bought a watering can and a wine rack and both for under $18! After that it was my cousins graduation, then we had dinner with her boyfriends family. By the end of the day I was exhausted, needless to say I slept like a baby every night.
Friday, I was able to go to H&M and Zara, both were just as wonderful as I remember from Spain! I can't wait to incorporate the pieces I bought into my summer wardrobe.

Saturday was my cousin's party, where I helped with minor detail, even though my mom and nina really did most of the prepping and cooking. I was in charge of helping Raquel and Michelle (Raquel's little sister, who is usually my partner in crime) with whatever they needed. I straightened Raquel's hair and curled Michelle's. Anything I can do to spend time with those girls makes me happy, I just love spending time with them!
All in all, I couldn't be happier to be home, Bo was happy to see me, and it was great just to hang out with Carlos. Last night we enjoyed a beer at a local brewery near our house called Marble, and tonight I am just doing laundry. Good to be back in Albuquerque!
