Hello Friends, On Thursday Annie and I both slept in. For once jet-lag didn’t wake us up too early. I showered and we wandered down to the breakfast cafe in our hotel where we both got the buffet. It was … Continue reading
June has been a month of many small but fun things. Farmers market’s, beach days, birthday parties and visits to SF. With long summer days and early mornings I can fit so much more in. Here’s little bit of what I’ve been up to if you don’t follow along on my instagram.
I went to an alumni picnic at my school and found this blast from the past picture of some of my girlfriends from my middle school. We look so young!
A co-worker invited me to her unicorn birthday party and at the end of it we all walked to 7/11 for slurpees. What a great way to celebrate a really hot day!
I’ve had so many to-do things for my apartment that have fallen off my to-do list (coffee-table, console table, hanging artwork, etc!) that my dad came over a few days after I was out of school and we put up these two great pieces above my desk: a picture shelf and my desk organizer. I’m ashamed to say they have been leaning against my wall since purchasing them this past September.
Two glorious beach days with friends have already happened and I can’t wait for more. Santa Cruz is gorgeous in the summer!
I discovered these great snacks at TJ’s. Yum.
I like to walk to Pier 39 in San Francisco. I went up a few days ago and had the best SF weather I’ve ever had, warm and windy but not too hot.
What all have you been up to lately? Any adventures?
This week was kinda crazy at work, but in all the best ways. It was Spirit Week, and I really had no clue how big of an event this was at our school. I am pulling together a post on it, so you will see evidence of the crazy, exciting, loud and pretty amazing Spirit Week. But here are a few small pictures of how life has been outside of school.
I went up to SF last weekend and it was a grey moody day. It was fun to pull on a hat and sweater and embrace the wintery weather.
I had gotten some movie passes for Christmas, and so a friend and I met up for dinner at Straits and then walked to the movie theatre. It was funny, had great acting, and was a total must see movie.
Picked up some new pants! I mostly wear corduroy pants to work on throwing wheel days, and skirts and dresses on other days. But I had some tired old too big pants and needed a new weekend pair. My mom and O helped me pick these out.
She was playing dress up and wore the cutest giraffe onesie. I wish they made them in my size.
I went for a long walk after school one day, when it was sunny and blue skies and it reminded me that winter will end and summer will be here soon enough.
A and I got together last week for drinks in Los Altos. We took some silly photos and had a blast on a random Friday evening.
How was your week?
Since you guys loved the Nantucket Video I made so much, I made another little montage of all the great things I did this summer. Since today is my first day with students at my new school, I created this early knowing I wouldn’t have time to write posts this week. I hope you like it!
It was one for the books, with travel, good times with friends and family! Are there any more videos I should make? Any topics you’d like to see covered?
How was your summer? Did you do anything you’ll remember in 20 years?
Mom and I flew back from NY into Lake Tahoe. Our dear neighbors were kind enough to drop us off and pick us up from our trip to the East Coast. We had a beautiful sunset on our drive over the hill to our house.
I had some friends from the Bay Area driving up to spend the weekend with us while they attended a wedding down near the Lake. They invited me to spend the day with them on Saturday and so we ate at an all you can eat sushi in Reno and had a ton of fun back at the house in the jacuzzi.
Kim and Aaron and their family left Monday morning, Dad, Cathy & Eduardo drove up to the house Monday afternoon. Mom and I spent most of the week with them, and I drove my little Prius home Thursday as I had to return to normal life and babysit. It was a sleepy week in Tahoe, we played board games a ton with our down the street high school & college neighbors, who are pretty cool kids. I also finally got a chance to use the kayaks with Cathy and Mom out on the lake, which was great and I can’t wait to get back out there on the water again.
I always come back from Tahoe well rested and relaxed and happy.
Do you have a place that you can “turn off” your brain at?
Our last day on Nantucket we started out with breakfast at Fog Island Cafe. From there my dad and I browsed a little bit in downtown where I picked up a few things. We went back to the house and packed … Continue reading
Thursday was a day of sunshine, wind in your face and gorgeous ocean views. We started with breakfast at Downyflake, where I had delicious doughnuts, eggs and bacon. A breakfast of champions for a busy day. My dad brother and … Continue reading
