Mover & A Shaker!

Depending on whether we're friends IRL or you you're a regular reader or you follow me on Twitter.. you may have heard my complaining about being so busy.  I'm sure you're just as tired of hearing it as I am feeling all scattered and stressed out!  Well a couple months ago when a friend of mine and Kaila's learned that her lease wouldn't be extended a thought occurred to Kaila.  This was our shot to move to the ever so charming East Sacramento!  What's one more thing to take on? House hunting was AWFUL and we were all getting worried that wouldn't be able to find the perfect home that was a) in the East Sacramento neighborhood b) a 3 bedroom that didn't mean someone would end up living in a closet c) was in our budget and d) didn't have an outrageous pet deposit.  Six times a charm!  We've found our new home and I couldn't wait to share the photos even though the current tenants stuff is in them.  I figure it will make the AFTER photos look even better!

Yes, I'm busy and yes, this is another another (huge) stresser for me, but the rewards of moving - not the actual moving part, but the new home part - will be worth it! (Run on sentence?  Don't judge me!) It will be fantastic to have more space!  More baking, more crafting, Oscar will have space to run!  I'm thrilled.. Hence all the exclamation points!!!

Updates to come. :)

I made that flyer on the right! NBD.

{Top 10 of 2010}

  1. Barely ten minutes in to 2010 Kaila and I had the drunken pleasure of making a new friend in Amber Lee.  One of those priceless stories where drunken strangers unite over tears, single life and discovering we’re all from Sacramento! Amber has introduced us to so many great people and new experiences.  Cheers to our one year anniversary!
  2. My first ever spa day!  In leu of a traditional bachelorette night Diana planned a spa day in El Dorado Hills with her nearest and dearest.  I seriously felt like a celebrity with our three treatments and lunch on their beautiful patio.  I could seriously get used to that. 
  3. Malia’s wedding.  Another first!  It was such a wonderful surprise to be asked to be a part of her big day.  She worked her butt off and it showed!  Everything about her backyard wedding screamed shabby chic :)  If you don’t believe it then check our her magazine spread… Yeah that’s right, a MAGAZINE!  
  4. Caitlin’s graduation in Seattle.  Having the whole family together {plus adopted sister} outside of Sacramento.  Lots of good food, shopping and sights!
  5. Our temporary summer bungalow in East Sac.  For a good chunk of the summer Kaila and I “housesat”.  Sweetest deal ever.  We watered their plants, drank their wine and lounged in their beautiful pool.  Next year you guys?
  6. San Francisco.  For so many reasons… A big part of that would be my memories with the Woo sisters.  It all started with an elaborate story about, divorce, remarriage and how three white girls had two Asian sisters.  I’ll have to explain that sometime, but I love Kelly, Kendall, and Kaila. Woooooo!!
  7. Driving down to LA on a second date for the LA Times Food and Wine event.  I wouldn’t really say I’m a spontaneous person, but it just all kind of fell in to place… Three days after our first date he picked me up bright and early in SF and we drove 6+ hours down to LA.  He even took the PCH so I could have a pretty view. *swoon*
  8. Being asked by my long time bestie a.k.a Wifey to be her maid of honor.  I cried. Completely out of character for me. I was so, so pleased to not only be a part of her day, but to be her go to girl for all her wedding needs.
  9. Mik and Blair’s birthday.  I had such a great time helping my friends Teresa and Sara plan a huge party for their boyfriends.  I love to host and toast, but this time Wifey and I were behind the curtains helping them make it all happen.  It was so fun!
  10. 28 is going to be my year.  I can feel it ;) Maybe it was the two three birthday celebrations or the copious amounts of wine, but we’re off to a good start!
