eskimomama The kids and I found this so amusing. We watched it spill over again and again and made them jump every single time. #slomo 2w

eskimomama Alright, ladies. What do we think about that bottom fabric choice(tan with white lotus flower design) in conjunction with the other fabrics on top? I'm trying to decide if I want to make slipcovers for the kitchen stools(you can see the legs at the bottom) or just buy the off-white linen-ish looking ones from IKEA for them. My fabric option is oilcloth! I have black accents in the dining area and kitchen; which, are all part of the great room in #thehillsidehouse, so I want it all to work together. #craftaholic 2w
  •   eskimomama Also, my kitchen is going to be all white, on white, on white, on white...2w
  •   rincestephani I love the fabrics! 2w
  •   makismom Love them all... My fave is the one at the bottom! 2w
  •   eskimomama @makismom @rincestephani That's my problem! The top three are actually pillows I made and will be used in the living room. The bottom one is the oilcloth I'm considering for the slipcovers. I think I've decided I'm going to go ahead and make them and maybe make some solid color ones too. I think a lot of pattern is always okay if it coordinates. I can't help myself! I really appreciate your input! 2w

eskimomama We're prepping dinner at lunch time today so we can go out and play the rest of the day. My little helper is "chop.chop.chopping!" #ikissthosecheeksALLday #sebastiangabriel #sebiymami 3w

eskimomama It was a big day for the Johnson's. You see those planks of wood placed so precisely on a plot of dirt right behind me? That, is the beginning of our home. We are so, so blessed. #thehillsidehouse #thankful #luckylady 3w

eskimomama The kids, my little brother @christianauri, and I drove down a little past the middle of the state(Bakersfield), for my cutie patootie nephew's birthday celebration tomorrow. We made it almost all the way here from the Bay with only one stop at what ended up being the best pit stop spot ever. There was organic food, clean bathrooms, and a huge playtown. It was just what we needed to make it through the last hour of our trip. The DVD player also saved my sanity. #Bravoland #CAroadtripping #sebastiangabriel 4w
  •   vanes_ish So cute 4w
  •   chrisjelesky We stopped there on the way back from Disney, neatest place! So cool that there's a slide in every other house. 4w
  •   aliciacampopiano Where is this??? I'm driving to Sac next weekend! I could really use a good pit stop like this one! 😬😬😬 @eskimomama 4w
  •   eskimomama @aliciacampopiano It's in Kettleman City; a little over an hour north of Bakersfield. It is a great stop. You have to be on 5, though. You won't hit it if you're going up 99. 4w
  •   aliciacampopiano Thanks, @eskimomama!!!! 4w

eskimomama I'm a pillow making fool! I've been collecting fabric and linens because a new house deserves sparkling new wares. My little guy likes to sew on an itty bitty one-stitch machine I bought for Amélie. It makes me proud. #boyscanbedomestic #sebiymami #sebastiangabriel #thehillsidehouse 1mon

eskimomama He is my favorite boy. Today, he's wearing a shirt that says, "Wild One," and every time I put it on him I have to agree. #sebiymami #sebastiangabriel #sebastianeltravieso 1mon

eskimomama 2 of 2. What do you think the story is here? 1mon

eskimomama 1 of 2. Last summer, my SIL and I went to a little scrapbook store where I stumbled upon a huge stash of really old photos. I riffled through the collection and picked out two little 2x2 inch photos that spoke to me. Up until yesterday, they were up on my wall with a bit of tape. A Costco visit later, I have a 12x12 inch copy of each that I can't wait to frame for #thehillsidehouse. I love imagining the story behind each one. 1mon

On the menu this week: veggie-loaded meatloaf, braised chicken with green olives + lemon(served with roasted potatoes), bbq beef short ribs(served with green beans almondine), and Thai style chicken burgers minus bun(served with lemon-y asparagus). I'll also be making sweet and savory sweet potatoes and my favorite egg salad(it has avocado. Yum!) #againstallgrain #itsallgood #paleo #cleaneats 1mon

eskimomama For several weeks, Amélie would spot the billboards for the Cinderella musical around town and her eyes would light up. On the day I was going to look into buying us tickets, a friend asked if I'd be interested in tickets her friend was offering. I was ecstatic! We looked forward to our mommy/baby date and talked about how we'd get all dressed up today and then see the princess. She had picked out her dress and bow and was so excited about being as girly as can be. She was all smiles and happy chatter until it started. It all went downhill from there(minus about 30 minutes where she was in awe) and we left at intermission. It broke my heart that our experience wasn't what I had hoped for. She cried, whined, complained and then asked to go home. I was angry and so upset that I even cried. Although I was sad, my girl left with a smile and talked about it with joy until she went to bed. I really hope to remember only the smiling face and giddy clapping from my girl while she sat on my lap during her happier moments of her first musical. #ameliesophia #parentingisHARD 1mon
  •   iurenee 1mon
  •   mrsclh Ahh parenthood is so hard! I'm sorry it didn't work out as planned, but happy to to hear she has good memories of getting dressed up & going on a mommy & daughter date and at the end of the day that's what matters the most 1mon
  •   lambda6 And she'll likely remember that she went to her first musical, and Cinderella at that, with her awesome mommy!! 1mon
  •   lambda6 Hold on to that! 1mon
  •   happyeverafter134 You both look so darling! Sorry she didn't make it through it! Parenting is super hard. 1mon
  •   sharele So very hard! Hold on to those highlights instead of the lows! Hopefully she will too 1mon
  •   chrisjelesky Awe, u where so excited :( 1mon
  •   joidan82 Oh, momma. I can totally empathize. You two are the sweetest. Expectations can really get in the way of just doing life. I'm sure little A and you will have nothing but fond, sweet memories about this day. Momma hugs! 1mon

eskimomama Even though we have a few months before the house is finished, I'm having way too much fun selling furniture I won't need or want to switch out and then buying things I've really wanted...like this leather lounge chair. #craigslistwin #thehillsidehouse 2mon
  •   mattbreyvisah That's an amazing piece! 2mon
  •   bessieykay Dang! We need to buy your furniture for our move! 2mon
  •   eskimomama We are! We bought new construction in Morgan Hill. It's expected to be completed around the end of June. We're super excited and anxious to move into our own place. We're also looking forward to having a party to have friends over to visit. I'll definitely be updating quite a bit on here now that we let the news out last week. @googleglassmom 2mon
  •   eskimomama You're moving too?! Where to? It's exciting to move, but such a pain in the butt too. @bessieykay 2mon
  •   bessieykay Across the street into a better place! Packing seems so silly to go such a short distance but its worth it! 2mon
  •   bessieykay Better and bigger. 2mon
  •   googleglassmom Yay, yay, yay!!! Congratulations!!! That's huge. Excited for you guys!!! 2mon

eskimomama We went to the Alameda Antique Faire today to look for a chair and do some awesome people watching. All I got was this vintage Coach purse and my kettle corn. I'd say the kettle corn made the trip worth it. #kernellove 2mon
  •   mrsclh Love the vintage coach!!! Did you have fun? 2mon
  •   the_decor_adobe I need to hit that one soon. Is it just certain time of the month there open?? 2mon
  •   stephlauritzen Love that bag... 2mon
  •   eskimomama It's our favorite. There is always so much stuff I want to buy. If I only had the space and the money! When you guys come to drop off furniture, we can plan it around the faire. Hehe. @theprojectgirl 2mon
  •   eskimomama Thank you! It was such a deal too. I always love the faire. Eric and I both decided today that we'll have to go without the kids soon. I could spend all day there. There's always so much to see! Did you get some good stuff? So sad I missed you, ladies! It would have been so much fun to meet in person! Maybe we can plan to meet there sometime soon? @mrsclh @sgardnerstyle 2mon
  •   sgardnerstyle Sure thing babes 2mon
  •   eskimomama It's the first Sunday of every month. It's year-round and it's really wonderful. You should totally check it out! @the_decor_adobe 2mon
  •   the_decor_adobe Ok... im going to have to make some plans next month 2mon

eskimomama Our cute date night picture. We had to cut it short since our sitter had a family emergency, but any amount of quiet time with my hot dude is invaluable. Plus, there was wine, delicious food, and chocolate. #luckylady 2mon

eskimomama I'm feeling so fortunate, so thankful, and extremely giddy about the fact that in a few months our family will be enjoying THIS view daily. Every time I drive over to the site, I just can't get over the beauty of the rolling hills.#newhome #thehillsidehouse 2mon

eskimomama I do believe the $100 I spent on this piece was absolutely worth it. Is it weird that I like to sit on the couch and just admire it? #causeido #thriftstorewin 2mon

eskimomama Yesterday was a bummer of a day which included two sick parents and lots of screaming. But today...glorious! We packed up the babies' bikes and made our way to Golden Gate park for a stroll, playground playing, and lots of sun and smiles. #SFlove #sebastiangabriel #ameliesophia 2mon
  •   theprojectgirl We used to live across the street from GG park. It's one thing that I miss so much! 2mon
  •   eskimomama I grew up going to GG park almost every weekend and it never gets old. I have always loved Sunday's in the park. It's so wonderful! Whenever we come up now, we always joke about moving back to SF. @theprojectgirl 2mon
