Queen Elsa (Round 3) 


Busted out Elsa & Olaf again this year. It’s become a tradition now! But hey- we won best costume at our church party, so that was fun.

Okay so I love Halloween- Well, I love any chance to celebrate, but I love dressing up. I probably learned that from my older brother, San, who also loves dressing up. 

The coolest thing happened this year- I made a BuzzFeed article for last year’s costume. Check out #11 on the article here!

Well, Nick and I tried to find something creative, but in the midst of starting a new job and Nick starting school, we just didn’t have a ton of extra time to come up with something. It took us 3 hours to find a half a costume. Oh well, hopefully next year we will be more settled and do something creative!

Happy Halloween! 

XOXO,

California Gold


We have been spending the weekend with Nick’s family. It has been great to be with them.

We had the opportunity to go up to our grandpa Blair’s property and go exploring. Their grandpa had a dream there was gold on the land, so we went to find it! We literally had a metal detector. ? Haha we actually just went to be together and to hike and see the beautiful views, but looking for gold was also fun!

Keeping family at the forefront always makes me the most happy, so today was wonderful.

And oh we didn’t find any gold…

Or did we?….

XOXO,

San Francisco Carousel


On Pier 39 stands the most photogenic carousel- okay when is a carousel not photogenic though? Of course we had to stop & take photos. ? 

This weekend was a blast with family! My mom has the pictures on her phone with all of us in front of the carousel. We were celebrating my older brother, Sam’s, birthday since it’s tough for us to fly down there at the end of the month. #StudentLife 

We had fun celebrating though. He tried to get one of the workers at Fuddruckers to sing to him. It didn’t work. Haha but we sang to him later! Here were the different things he asked me for while he was here. He is so cute! He didn’t ask me for the last item on the list, but apparently he’s been asking mom for that for the past few weeks!

? Sam’s Birthday Wishlist ?

  • A notebook. No, not The Notebook, just a blank notebook.
  • An LA Lakers Magazine. Apparently he has been a closet fan until now? ?
  • 2 buddy passes to LAX. He already flys for free… ? 
  • A new iPhone 8. I can’t fault him there. 

I just love him! He is hilarious and oh so sweet. 

Okay well, that’s enough for now. If you’re ever in San Francisco, go check out Pier 39! This is just one of the many cool things on the list. 

Happy Sabbath!

XOXO,
