rinserepeatblog keys to our new home, and fresh roses from our new yard! we're still renting because...well...it's the Bay Area and we're not millionaires. ;) but our landlord left a giant bouquet of flowers and a beautiful outdoor fountain for us...and that makes renting not so bad. :) 5d

rinserepeatblog uh-oh...stuck in a little tidepool while searching for starfish... 2w
  •   beckyavery2 While my naked 2 year old runs around OWNING that beach. (Not pictured here...but it happened.) 2w
  •   rinserepeatblog @beckyavery2 HAHA. Indeed. Maybe the funniest thing I've ever seen. 2w
  •   beckyavery2 Poor Gabe. He almost lost it with uncomfortable-ness :) 2w
  •   rinserepeatblog @beckyavery2 Hahaha...true. But then probably he got too busy thinking about wanting to wash all of our sandy clothes...but SEPARATE from the regular non-sandy clothes...and in three different loads based on fabric type. The OCD is strong with that one...I can only imagine how many uncomfortable moments await Gabe when we have kids. ;) 2w

rinserepeatblog being away from family at the holidays is the pits...so i tend to go a bit nuts every year trying to find **the perfect gift**. this year i opted to give my loved ones three small, meaningful gifts: something you want...something you need...and something to read. obviously delivered with lots of pastels + watercolor tags. ;) 1mon

rinserepeatblog butters is alarmed by the onslaught of sparkly, christmassy things. 2mon

  •   tori___reynolds How does he get along with lucky??? 2mon
  •   rinserepeatblog @tori___reynolds He is GREAT with her...doesn't chase or bark or antagonize her at all! This is amazing, given how Lucky acts towards him...lots of hissing + swiping + general crankiness. Even in the middle of the night when Butters is asleep, she still cannot get an aggressive response from him. We give her lots of attention + private space...hoping someday she'll calm down and accept him! 2mon
