East Bay Livin’

January 28, 2015


So… we are officially East Bay people! We made the big move across the Bay at the beginning of January and have been settling into our new place in Walnut Creek. The biggest struggle we faced when living in the city was not having a car (and the lack of parking for that matter). We decided that we really missed being able to run to the grocery store or out for a quick errand on the weekend, and that was a big contributing factor in our decision to move. At our new place, we have a conveniently located Target (YES!!!!!!!), BART stop, and a parking space included (double YES!!!). So, naturally, the first day we were in Walnut Creek, we went and bought our first new car! :) Life is good again.

A Few Snaps From New York

January 26, 2015


I wanted to share a few more snaps from my New York trip. Meghan and I kept the trip pretty low key, with a small checklist that we wanted to follow. Even though we were only there for four days together, we managed to check everything off our list! It was fun to be able to explore the city at our own pace.

We OBVIOUSLY went to Serendipity but decided to order something besides the frozen hot chocolate. We were tempted to get the $1,000 Golden Decadence Sundae (kidding!), but decided to order this gooey, caramel apple pie cinnamon ice cream confection. Yes.


I want to move into this magical princess palace.


We were able to catch Chicago on Broadway one night! Razzle dazzle ’em!

The highlight of our trip was the phenomenal brunch we had at Crema in Chelsea. Bottomless mimosas and chilaquiles to die.

The aftereffects of bottomless mimosas…


A trip to NYC wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the American Girl store! Who else had and loved this book???

We made it up on the #LOVEISON screen in Times Square!


Oh heeeey Naked Cowboy, you’re a trooper… January in New York. is. FREEZING.

A New York Minute

January 19, 2015

Happy January! What a whirlwind few weeks I’ve had. Soon after the holidays wrapped up, we moved (!!! more on that later this week), bought our first new car (!!!!!) and I went to New York for a business trip/mini vaca with Meghan. We met in the city on Thursday and spent the weekend eating incredible food, braving the cold, and doing everything we could squeeze into a New York minute. Amongst catching a Broadway show and gorging ourselves on pizza (Little Italy Pizzeria on W 45th is where it’s AT), we managed to sneak in a style shoot in Times Square. Don’t let these photos deceive you… it. was. FREEZING. Maybe I’ve become soft since moving to California, but the cold was absurdly brutal. I’m not sure how you New Yorkers do it every year!
