January 2015 Recap

January 2015 Recap

1) Long walks have been a major blessing for me this month. I started 2015 taking walk near the American River with my family over my Winter Break. Since then, I’ve been doing a combo of walks near my house or on the treadmill.

2) Through my work I was able to meet Jamie Oliver and see him in action. It was a major highlight for me. I’ve been a fan since the Naked Chef came out.

3) While Nate spent countless hours watching season after season of Friends while he graded, I fell in love with The Great British Bake-off on PBS.

4) One of my New Year’s goals was to read fifty books this year. I have to a good start. In January, I finished #GirlBoss, The Tyrant’s Law & The Widow’s House.

5) I attended my first baby shower pregnant. It was fun to share the moment with Elissa and can’t wait to meet her little one.

6) The melodic Waves by Mr. Probz’s Waves has been in my head all month. I just can’t stop listening to it.

7) Our carpenter on Project Roof surprised us with this amazing bench made from new and reclaimed wood from the project.

8) I helped Nate with his end of semester grading by entering scored into his gradebook. So glad I had PBS shows to keep my going through the hours of data entry.

9) Lemons, lemons, lemons – I have been putting lemon zest, juice and pulp in just about everything this month and I don’t see the obsession changing until we have no more Meyer Lemons on our tree.

August 2014 Recap

August 2014 Recap

I love August. It’s so busy and full of laughter. We did a lot, but I enjoyed every minute.

1. We took a group of friends to Sea Ranch and they loved it so much we plan to go back next summer. #searanch2014
2. I love BBQ Oysters from Fishtarian in Bodega Bay SO MUCH.
3. I did my best to unplug as much as possible. It is a daily struggle for me to put that darn iphone down, but I continue to work on it.
4. I got a little obsessed with Orphan Black and Cedar Cove this month. These two shows couldn’t be more different, but I enjoyed them both. I would recommend Orphan Black to anyone, but Cedar Cove only for the sentimental.
5. We have been making roof progress. Nate really spearheaded the drive and I am so thankful he did because I was an absolutely horrible project manager. We have our funding secured and hopefully vendor contracts signed this week!
6. My parents bought me this excellent Maleficent hat on a Disneyland trip with the nieces. Looks like I have my Halloween inspiration this year…
7. I had to say goodbye to my moon window decal when we got a new windshield. She’s been with me since my first car.
8. Nate and I attended a sweet, intimate wedding in our friends’ backyard.
9. My parents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary. Aren’t they adorable? :)
