My Tinder Horror Story

So as a lot of you have gathered from my blog so far, I am a hopeless romantic and although I started this blog with the intention of writing about just decor it has turned into a journal about my life as I navigate through my twenties. I have mentioned my journey to find my special guy, now I have had my heart broken a few times, but I haven't given up on the possibility of one day finding that all consuming love that everyone talks about. I feel like these days it is so hard to meet someone, people are choosing to get married later, people are putting careers first, women are freezing their eggs AND there are so many routes to choose from … [Read more...]

Comments Galore!!

Hi All! From my previous post you know why I haven't posting as often as I would like to, I'm still trying adjust to my new schedule with my new dream job. I find that no two days are the same and unlike a lot of other people that look at the three walls of a cubicle all day, I actually have days where I am out in the field designing a home that is about to be put on the market or doing research for our next home community. On friday I was given the task of of picking out all of the materials and fixtures that will go into our new model home community in Hanford, CA. I had the hardest time holding back my happy dance until I was … [Read more...]

Radio Silence Ended…

Wow!! I'm so sorry guys! Where did the time go?! Where did the last month of summer go?! Can I get an Amen on that one? Amen! I love this time of the year, I love fall, the crisp air, the scarves, the boots and jeans, football, pumpkin spice lattes and no more kids playing in the morning while I'm going to work and making me jealous! As I am writing this Northern California finally is having a cloudy in who knows how long! So a lot to update you guys on, so much has happened in my life and in the past month, I'm hoping I can get it into one post!

Bedroom Update!

Pray for us over here in Vacaville, California! There is a pretty bad fire that started and it has made its way closer to Vacaville. Luckily I heard that it was 80% contained by yesterday, but still, it went through like 8,000 acres, I m hoping that not too much wildlife was affected because it is just really dry brush that is up there on those hills. But please pray for those that had to evacuate their homes. On a lighter note! So mr. Ace got a hair cut today and needless to say he wasn't too thrilled about it. Mommy took way to long to get him into the groomer and if you know anything about Maltipoos', they mat like no other, so his poor … [Read more...]

Puppy Update!

Happy Thursday friends! It's another beautiful day here in Northern California, its getting to be a little bit hotter than I would like, high 80's low 90's.

Entry Way and Boys

Coming to you on a Friday night and I m absolutely exhausted from this week! A good exhausted but my bed is still singing me. Probably heading there next, I swear sometimes I see Ace shake his head about how tired I am when I get home at night. My apartment has no designated entry, when you walk in my front door it just opens into the family room and I wanted to make a special spot for an entry. Excuse the bad pic. After I painted my apartment last year, I just felt like the entry wall just blended in with everything else. So the way I cured this was painting stripes! I used Benjamin Moore's Sea Haze and Grey Owl. I got a laser level … [Read more...]

New Direction and Real Life

So we will start off this post as a follow up from the last stating that..I got my "big girl job!" Pop open the wine cooler..which I did! I am now on the starting the path that I envisioned when I stepped into my first interior design class in college. Sadly, it has taken me a little bit longer to get here than I envisioned on that first day but I m trying to tell myself better late than never and this is truly what I love to do. The new job: the job is working as a design assistant at Stonewood Bath and Kitchen Design located in Walnut Creek CA. They take on all types of different projects: new construction, remodels and so much more! I m … [Read more...]

My To Do List

Hello! I'm back in the world of the living! applause, applause, applause... I am now a month and a half into having mono! Oh my gosh, if you haven't had it count your lucky stars, you are a blessed human being. We still aren't sure exactly how I got it but luckily I am now at the tail end of it. For two weeks straight all I did was sleep, if I showered, I was so exhausted afterwards that I would crawl back into bed still dripping wet, hair not combed and an all around definition of a mess. Well now I am back at work, but still am working lighter shifts because I have to go home to take a nap but the rest of my symptoms seem to have subsided. … [Read more...]
