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 1d

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 1w
  •   vanes_ish So cute 1w
  •   chrisjelesky We stopped there on the way back from Disney, neatest place! So cool that there's a slide in every other house. 1w
  •   aliciacampopiano Where is this??? I'm driving to Sac next weekend! I could really use a good pit stop like this one! 😬😬😬 @eskimomama 1w
  •   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. 1w
  •   aliciacampopiano Thanks, @eskimomama!!!! 1w

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 2w

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 2w

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. 3w

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 3w

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 3w
  •   iurenee 3w
  •   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 3w
  •   lambda6 And she'll likely remember that she went to her first musical, and Cinderella at that, with her awesome mommy!! 3w
  •   lambda6 Hold on to that! 3w
  •   happyeverafter134 You both look so darling! Sorry she didn't make it through it! Parenting is super hard. 3w
  •   sharele So very hard! Hold on to those highlights instead of the lows! Hopefully she will too 3w
  •   chrisjelesky Awe, u where so excited :( 3w
  •   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! 3w

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 4w
  •   mattbreyvisah That's an amazing piece! 4w
  •   bessieykay Dang! We need to buy your furniture for our move! 4w
  •   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 4w
  •   eskimomama You're moving too?! Where to? It's exciting to move, but such a pain in the butt too. @bessieykay 4w
  •   bessieykay Across the street into a better place! Packing seems so silly to go such a short distance but its worth it! 4w
  •   bessieykay Better and bigger. 4w
  •   googleglassmom Yay, yay, yay!!! Congratulations!!! That's huge. Excited for you guys!!! 4w

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 4w
  •   mrsclh Love the vintage coach!!! Did you have fun? 4w
  •   the_decor_adobe I need to hit that one soon. Is it just certain time of the month there open?? 4w
  •   stephlauritzen Love that bag... 4w
  •   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 4w
  •   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 4w
  •   sgardnerstyle Sure thing babes 4w
  •   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 4w
  •   the_decor_adobe Ok... im going to have to make some plans next month 4w

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 4w

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 1mon

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 1mon

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 1mon
  •   theprojectgirl We used to live across the street from GG park. It's one thing that I miss so much! 1mon
  •   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 1mon

eskimomama I'm a good wife. I scheduled to have my wisdom teeth removed today, just in time for Valentine's Day. He now gets to love me with a swollen cheek and no make-up. #truelove #igotagoodone I love you @ericjjohnson! 1mon
  •   megsmacaskill Oh you...so sad! 1mon
  •   rosiebridges Speedy recovery! Be careful of dry sockets. 1mon
  •   makismom Awww! Hope it gets better quick! 1mon
  •   eskimomama Thanks, sweet ladies! So far, I'm in no pain, just soreness and obvious swelling. But, they suggested not working out for a week. That's always the hardest for me. @happyeverafter134 @makismom @megsmacaskill I wasn't familiar with dry socket until they mentioned it today. @rosiebridges I think Eric said he had it. Awful! I had two removed when I was 18 and had no problems or pain, so I'm crossing my fingers for the same result. 1mon
  •   mrsclh I hope you better! 1mon
  •   googleglassmom Hope it heals fast mama!! Sending good tooth fairy wishes your way! 1mon
  •   rincestephani May you have a swift recovery! 1mon
  •   eskimomama Thank you all! Neither Eric or I were at our best today. Throw in two hyper kids and it's been a poopy day. Hopefully, tomorrow is better. @mrsclh @googleglassmom @rincestephani 1mon

eskimomama Alrighty IG decorating ladies! Do I want this? I've been wanting something mid century for the TV. The shelf moves and it is in great condition. I cannot decide if I like the top part; although it would be perfect for putting all the electronics in. Thoughts? 2mon
  •   lifebeginsatthirtyright Would your tv fit in the top part? Could be cool to hang the tv from the top part and have all the cords hidden behind and they would run down into the back of the cupboards? 2mon
  •   eskimomama @lifebeginsatthirtyright It does! In fact, I had that same idea. I could still a hole for all the ugly cords to go down the back. 2mon
  •   mrskstillman it! 2mon
  •   melbustamante So cute! Love mid century furniture! 2mon
  •   aliciacampopiano Definitely put hideaways for the cords and store receiver below and mount the TV and maybe add some shelves for books or photos, etc?! I like it!! 2mon
  •   makismom Could ur tv fit in the top part? Def love the bottom piece! 2mon
  •   xoelle A beauty!!! 1w
  •   eskimomama @xoelle It's probably my best thrift store find to date! It's love. 7d
