It was so nice and relaxing. 
But also sweet to be back in sunny San Diego- I'm not build for the cold anymore.
We have Disneyland, San Fran and then Christmas in the next two weeks and I'm just giddy with excitement!

hambsch family Christmas card

Hi friends!
Okay big deal to tell yah about! 
We are sending out our Christmas cards BEFORE Christmas!
I mean, mom win or what?!
They are such cute Christmas cards thanks to the ever so cute Basic Invite!
We've been sending holiday cards since we were Newlyweds-
I think it's such a fun tradition!
I hang them up around Christmas and it's always sweet to look back and see the different cards from the different chapters in our life..
- Omaha- we used our wedding photo as our first!
- Iowa- I was reporting and Zak was in his second year of medical school!
- Phoenix- I was very preggo
- Scottsdale- Liam's first debut!
And now San Diego!
I also love writing a little "year in review" as well to kinda catch everyone up on what we're doing-
since yah know we tend to move just a bit!
Ps how dapper does Liam look in his bow tie?!
Can't handle his cuteness!
And PPS if yah still need to order your Christmas cards-
use "HOLI30" to snag 30% off your order!
Woot woot!
PPPS shout out to our wonderful neighbors Bailey Films for these photos-
priceless I tell yah!

We just got our cards back and LOVE how the turned out.
Ya'll know I'm obsessed with bright colors so this card was meant for me!
I also have the cutest assistant or cutest distraction {both work} helping me address all the envelopes so we can send them to our loved ones.
And as much as I love sending cards- it's always so fun to get them too!
See everyone's holidays photos, families growing, people moving-
such a sweet tradition!
Hooray for snail mail!

And speaking of color...
 Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. 
Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options- 
for example I changed this green to "mint" instead of "sea foam" and was obsessed with it!
 So you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. 
They also have over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes-
so your card can be merry and bright before it's even opened!
Here are some more examples below!

This card was my runner up-
again you know I love the color!

So anywho-
Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
Here is our virtual holiday card- 
the real deal will be coming soon to a mailbox near you!
And a big thank you to Basic Invite for the beautiful and bright cards-
we love them!

happy december!

Happy December friends!!
Are you getting into the spirit?!
We got our Christmas tree, decked the halls, hung the lights, bakes some treats and have been playing Jingle Bell rock all week!
This. time. is. the. best.
There's nothing better than seeing the holidays through your baby's eyes.
We went to our local Christmas tree stand {cutest little thing ever} and picked out our tiny, yet fierce tree!
One day I want a flocked big ole tree!!
But our little guy is perfect this year.
Liam honestly didn't really care for the tree-
didn't impress him like the "scary" stuff around Halloween did.
However he does like the "balls" on the tree-
so far only one ornament has kicked the bucket- crossing my fingers it's the only fatality.

Our house is now feeling so festive and cozy-
I just love it!
However.. the morning after getting our tree we all got pretty sick.
Long story short:
we have some type of cold virus-
I have infected eyes, Liam has a cough and runny nose and we all have sore throats.
So all the fun activities we had planned for the week {Christmas parades and all} had to be canceled and we've been snuggling, holiday movie watching and baking at home instead.
Crossing my fingers we'll be better soon!
We have a couple trips coming up and I want to be 100% by then!

But minus the illness we're doing great!
Zak's almost to his easier rotation, we have vacations, and a trip to Disney coming up and hello CHRISTMAS!!
I just wished this month could last forever!

Hope you're doing well!


liam aka the smartest babe around.

Where did my little baby go?!
Every time he gets a hair cut I cry a little on the inside.
Just looking too grown up!
He talks in sentences, counts to TEN, knows his colors, does puzzles, reads Harry Potter, like to play "fumble" with Zak, is on a soccer team-
It's like in a two month time span-
He just grew up.
He's so stinkin smart.
It amazes us.
Like how do you know so much Liam?!
He is a chatty cathy, has a memory like a computer and just surprises us with more words everyday!
Life with him is just the bees knees I tell yah.
The best.

One afternoon we had a mommy baby date-
went to our fun hair salon in Point Loma-
it's the cutest spot you guys!

Liam got to ride in a fire truck so he was totally fine with the sheers!
His face kills me!

And after got "candy!"
He was looking sharp!
After we walked around the market, grabbed ice cream and then met daddy for dinner!
It was one of those afternoons you just cherish.
I love my little best friend-
speaking of bffs-
he literally says, "best friend daddy I miss you!" to Zak when he sees him. 
I. Die.

Liam we love you so much!
You're the cutest, smartest, funniest 22-month old we know!
How did we get so lucky?!

thanksgiving surprises.

Hi loves!
How it is already December, I do not know.
Like what in the world?!
I hope ya'll had a sweet Thanksgiving full of carbs and shopping.
Ours wasn't so traditional- but still just as memorable and fun!
We knew that Zak was going to have to work-
so my mom and her fiance came into town and stayed on Coronado Island to make it a little
Coronado is MY FAVE!!
So I couldn't wait to spend the weekend by the beach.
However I was feeling pretty bummed when nap time rolled around on Thanksgiving rolled and Zak wasn't home, the smell of turkey roasting wasn't in the air and I wasn't taste testing mashed potatoes.
And then-
and I swear this is true.
I told Liam, "mama misses daddy" and sure enough I got a text that read-
"heading home!"
Woot woot!!
I. was. so. excited.
So we loaded up the car and headed to Coronado Island!

We ate dinner at my all time fave San Diego diner- Clayton's Coffee Shop!
And we all had the most un-Thanksgiving day dinner!
Me: acai bowl and rye toast 
Zak: cheeseburger
Liam: spaghetti and meat balls
Mom: chicken salad
Cole: fish and chips

And then we all shared a giant cinnamon bun ice cream sundae!

Afterwards we walked around this historic neighborhood and then let Liam play at the park until the moon when, "night night!"

The rest of the weekend was filled with visiting them at their gorg resort, eating out, walks on the beach and a girls day!

The views of downtown were so pretty!!

We walked over to the beach one night and watched the sun go allllll the way down-
it was magical!
Liam kept asking, "where sun go?!"
It was so sweet and a little memory I never want to forget!

My mom and I spent one morning shopping local in Coronado-
so many great stores!
And we had to stop back into Clayon's for an acai bowl- best ones EVER!

And then in the afternoon to keep "small business Saturday" alive-
the three of us went shopping in North Park!
We haven't had a hood date in a while since we walk and then sun goes down so earlier-
so this was extra sweet!

It was a very beachy very San Diegan Thanksgiving and I LOVED it!
So grateful for the time we got to spend together.

Hope yours was lovely!
