eskimomama I remember sitting in the back seat of the blue Ford with my little brother, @primal_art_esco with my legs sticking to the vinyl seats, the breeze coming in from the windows, and the joyful assurance that a trip to the Boardwalk meant enjoying a chocolate dipped cone. I hope my littles remember their visits with the same sweet sentimentality. #johnsonverano2015 #ameliesophia #emiliothepanda 1d

  •   eskimomama It's annoying the heck out of me that I accidentally wrote "she's." I was originally going to write something else and I can't change it!!! @iurenee 1d
  •   iurenee I wouldn't have even noticed! haha 1d

eskimomama This girl. ️ I told @happyeverafter134 that we seem to have a signature selfie pose and tradition. LNO, go to the bathroom together, adjust hair, and take an usie. I love us. #LNO #johnsonverano2015 #fab4 2d
  •   happyeverafter134 I love our bathroom buddy system! Lol. 2d
  •   megsmacaskill Lucky me- I get to go out with the hottest ladies. Next time can I join the bathroom selfie? Also- nancy, you nailed the flirty smile here. 2d

eskimomama June 24, 2015: Our very first plum of the year. During the next two weeks you'll find me in our backyard trying to catch them before they fall. #johnsonverano2015 5d

eskimomama I couldn't even wait to leave the post office before I put on my #lottafromstockholm clogs. I can already tell these will be a perfect addition to my time capsule wardrobe. #johnsonverano2015 #eskimomamastyle 7d
  •   stephlauritzen How's the sizing? True to size? Size up? 7d
  •   eskimomama I would say that they are true to size. I ordered my exact size and they fit perfectly. I was a little worried about the leather being stiff, but it's so soft and buttery. @stephlauritzen 7d
  •   megsmacaskill Ooh! I need those! 7d
  •   rincestephani You had me at "buttery." Those are so cute. 7d
  •   stephlauritzen Thanks @eskimomama I've wanted some for months but didn't know if I should believe the hype! 6d

eskimomama This sweet, kind, supportive, loving, and giving man of mine relishes in making his kids happy. We continued our Father's Day tradition of taking a train ride and making everyone happy. Niles to Sunol and back. We followed it with pizza and great coffee(Eric's favorites) and soaked up the perfect weather until the adults were exhausted and the kids doubled their energy levels. Happy Father's Day!! #johnsonverano2015 #nilescanyonrailway 1w

eskimomama Here we are(June 20,2015)! If it's not obvious, our home's façade is craftsman style. My very favorite! It was super exciting to walk in and see the insulation completed. That means we'll have sheet rock installed this week. The bottom pic is from a hallway looking into the great room and kitchen. I will never be more excited about washing dishes standing over where the island will be than I am now. #dishesarethemansjob #thehillsidehouse 1w

eskimomama We're getting close to the end! Today was our big granite slab picking day. Unfortunately, it turns out that the shipment of the granite I chose(river white) came in with cracked slabs. They offered these slabs, but when you expect white with some grey veining in a flowing pattern in one direction, you basically give it a big . They'll be contacting their other shop in SoCal to see if they can get what I really want in soon. Crossing my fingers because I certainly do not want to delay our move-in date. #thehillsidehouse #johnsonverano2015 1w
  •   vanes_ish How exiting!!! 1w
  •   aliciacampopiano Where in so Ca? I can go investigate your slabs for you. 1w
  •   tinam215 It is so beautiful!!!!! 1w
  •   eskimomama I'm not sure. It's Arizona Tile Co. I officially designate you as my slab-checker-outter! He said that he now knows what I want from my slab, he'll have them send him pictures before they ship it. I hope there are two there I like because apparently the one I chose is very popular and another shipment from India is not expected for another month. At least they gave me another granite as an option that is very similar, so I think I'd happy with it. Buuuutt...it's not what I chose 5 months ago!!!! @aliciacampopiano 1w
  •   eskimomama This one is pretty, but totally not the look I was going for. Boo hoo. There were so many beautiful slabs. If they can't get me what I signed up for months ago, I'm going to cry and make them give me some expensive marble! @tinam215 1w
  •   aliciacampopiano I am pretty sure we went to Arizona Tile Co a couple years back when we remodeled our kitchen a bathrooms. Text me if you need help seriously!!! 1w

eskimomama Feeling so proud of my rockstar dental patient! No cavities and he was an absolute angel for it all. #sebastiangabriel #johnsonverano2015 2w
  •   happyeverafter134 He's the cutest!!!!! I just want to smooch him! 2w
  •   googleglassmom You're one lucky, lucky mum!! 2w
  •   tinam215 Woo hoo Sebi!!!! My kids went to the dentist for the first time yesterday (to watch me get my teeth cleaned) and they were petrified. Dreading when they have to get checked out. 2w
  •   eskimomama Oh no! @tinam215 His first time was not a success, but I'm thinking reading books and pretending he was at the dentist while at home may have really helped. He seriously did the best possible. We read the book about Curious George going to the dentist and then both kids sat on my lap while I did what our dentist would do. Your poor kids. I was totally scared of the dentist for the longest time. 2w

eskimomama Babies in the baby pool and mama sunning in the hammock. I love you summer. ️ Although, I'm okay with it not being 100 degrees every day. #johnsonverano2015 3w
  •   megsmacaskill The best! 3w
  •   lkfraser01 Great pic! Almost pulled out the hammock this past sun. Now I am jealous. 3w
  •   eskimomama Thanks! @lkfraser01 Whatever rain you guys were having yesterday made it's way here today. It was wonderful while the sunshine lasted. 3w

eskimomama We had a wonderfully successful frame walk-thru of our new house today and really an all-around awesome day that is currently ending in prosciutto, Masters of Sex(I'm addicted!), and a margarita. Somebody pinch me. #luckylady 4w
  •   megsmacaskill Ooh! Sounds like a fantastic evening! I love how grounded and positive you always are! 4w
  •   thatwife How can I watch Masters of Sex? Do I have to buy the whole cable package? 4w
  •   eskimomama My sweet, sweet friend, @megsmacaskill. I'm so fortunate in every way. It makes it easy to be positive. 4w
  •   eskimomama We had to get it on DVD from Netflix. Unfortunately, they only have the first season. Thus, we bought the second season on Apple TV. Addicted, we are! @thatwife 4w

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 4w
  •   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? 4w
  •   eskimomama You have good taste! I made the pillows that are on our family room sofa right now. I love that design. @tinam215 4w

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 4w
  •   mrsclh Great score & vision!!!! 4w
  •   rincestephani Oh my goodness. They look great! 4w
  •   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 4w
  •   makismom They look so good! 4w
  •   eskimomama Thank you so much! Using a paint sprayer is a game changer. My painting list is now super long. @makismom @mrsclh 4w
