Sunday, July 24


First, a little update: my mom did GREAT through her treatment! She gets to come out of isolation tomorrow and will have the full body scan on August 1st...we are so excited to put all of this behind us! Thank you all so much for your sweet words and prayers! 


Y'all, California is awesome! We have had the best time exploring our new town...although it still doesn't feel real that we will be living here. I keep saying "I feel like I'm in a movie!" Particularly Win a Date with Tad Hamilton. I would be Rosalee in this situation. Yikesabee!

Also, we found a house!!! It's not official yet, as we are still going through all of the paperwork, but hopefully we will be the new renters of this beautiful home soon! My mind is already reeling with design ideas! We met the owners and absolutely loved them and their BOXER! I think it was meant to be :) Here's a sneak peek:

In other news, celebrity stalkfest #1 was a major fail. Our realtor asked us what we were doing last night, and Doug told him that we were going celeb hunting. Luckily, he wasn't freaked out by this and suggested that we go to this high-end shopping center in Newport Beach where Kobe Bryant frequents the Starbucks. 

So we go and find a table and I get my camera all ready (I wish I was kidding...I am seriously this psychotic excited about celebs) and to my disappointment, Kobe is nowhere to be seen. So I ask my new best friends (2 high school girls working at the Starbucks) if this is a good place to spot stars, and they told me Kobe comes all the time in the mornings! So we will be returning :)

I think I need to head on over to TMZ for my new job. I'm already doing it unpaid!

Also, my brother just found out his permanent duty station is Camp Pendleton in California! Not TOO far from you, I don't think. Blogger bestie meet-up? Yes, please.
