eskimomama It's hard to tell in this picture, but Sebastian got his first black eye(on his right eye) on Saturday. While jumping in a bouncy house a friend hit him with his head and it immediately turned black&blue. Tonight, while on our after-dinner walk, he stumbled and scraped his face and got a bump on his forehead. My poor kid looks so beat up. But, there's that smile. #sebastiangabriel 2d
  •   tinam215 I have that exact same fabric in the background! I'm going to make kitchen curtains with it. What did you use it for? 2d
  •   eskimomama You have good taste! I made the pillows that are on our family room sofa right now. I love that design. @tinam215 2d

eskimomama About two months ago, during a normal perusal of Craigslist, I found a listing for 50 DWR Salt chairs for $20 a pop. I found it odd that they had so many and then I was skeptical when the man gave me the address for the WF in Redwood City. Okay. 😐But for that price, I had to check them out. I was greeted by the nicest man(the store manager) and he informed me that he was selling all the chairs they had in their dining areas because he'd ordered new ones. I could pick as many and whichever ones I wanted. The only problem; they were the brightest red you've ever seen. For Mother's Day the kids and hubby gave me an air compressor and a spray gun to add to my collection of power tools, and I got to work. I finally finished painting all 8 chairs today!!! Yippee! I have so many other things I'd like to paint, but I think I need a break. Painting while also caring for kids is a lot of work! #somanycoatsofpaint 2d
  •   mrsclh Great score & vision!!!! 2d
  •   rincestephani Oh my goodness. They look great! 2d
  •   eskimomama Thank you!! Using a spray gun and paint makes the biggest difference!! I am so happy with the factory-like finish you get. I think they look better than when I picked them up from the store. They had little dings and scratches from so much use, but after some light sanding and paint, they look new. But, seriously...those spindles took forever to cover perfectly. @rincestephani 2d
  •   makismom They look so good! 2d
  •   eskimomama Thank you so much! Using a paint sprayer is a game changer. My painting list is now super long. @makismom @mrsclh 2d

eskimomama We've been having the best weekend. The kind that makes us realize we like taking little road trips and hanging out with old friends. Beautiful views, drinking delicious wine, and happy kids playing in wide open spaces make for very happy days. #thisisthelife #truckee #ameliesophia 1w

eskimomama As someone who doesn't like eating leftovers, I totally feel like I'm taking one for the team. #againstallgrain BBQ short ribs and roasted potatoes/sweet potatoes with sage from #epicurious for breakfast. #justkidding #imwinning #paleo 2w
  •   aliciacampopiano Yum!!! Looks delicious! Where did you get your fun plates?? 2w
  •   eskimomama Thanks! They're from Target, but I don't recommend them. I had a set before these for almost ten years and they were almost perfect. I've had these for a few months and they have already chipped and broken in half. @aliciacampopiano 2w
  •   aliciacampopiano Well, it still looks delic even with chips and cracks!! 2w
  •   chnar Cool! 2w

Getting three out of four to sit for a picture was our best effort. #ameliesophia #emiliothepanda #sebastiangabriel 3w

eskimomama Hi Friday! I'm so happy you're here. I made myself a little open-faced chorizo, fried egg, and avocado sandwich while the kids chose to eat cereal this morning. ps. Mexican chorizo has always upset my stomach. A few months ago I found Diestel turkey chorizo at WF. It's so, so delicious and way healthier. #avocadooneverything #cleaneats 4w

eskimomama Last year while on vacation I bought Amélie the cutest little Mexican hand-embroidered dress and she LOVED it. She'd frequently ask to wear her Mexican dress; as she calls it. While on vacation this year, her one main request was a new Mexican dress. This year she got to pick it herself and is totally in love with it. She asked to wear it this morning and I happily obliged. I love it when she says proudly, "I'm Mexican, Guatemalan, Irish and German." Sebastian couldn't resist getting in this photo and practicing saying, "Cheeeeeeese." #ameliesophia #sebastiangabriel #emiliothepanda 4w

eskimomama Enjoying a margarita while making lemongrass chicken curry from #makeitpaleo II. It's all about moderation. Not shown is the big ol' bowl of guacamole and plantain chips I may just eat all by myself. Feliz Cinco de Mayo! #paleo #notpaleo 4w
