Oh hey there!

Wow, it sure has been an embarrassingly long time since my last post. I must admit I don't know how it has gotten so far away from me. We have been having a very busy and fun time. I'm currently on Ski week from school. I hope to get a million things accomplished at home and in my classroom so we will see how that all shakes out. We spent the long weekend in Danville and PJ let me spend tons of time with my sisters and mom, which is my favorite time!

Of course his generosity wasn't entirely selfless. PJ is working at Pinterest now and he is enjoying every minute of work. Consequently he wants to work more minutes so while we did go on a hike and do some other fun things this weekend he took many opportunities to sneak to his computer while I was distracted with my family.

Anyhow that is the short update, we are loving our busy life and I have to keep a better handle on this blog this year!

Let the Wild Rumpus Begin

I started by writing out a long explanation of all of the crazy happenings in our lives right now. Then deleted it and realized I just can't right now... Until then, in short, I wish I was still here...

Love to all.

1 Year

There has been so much going on in our lives as of late. I promise I will catch up on all of that soon but I couldn't let today pass by with out a post. Today is our one year anniversary! 

One Year ago today I married the most wonderful man in the world. 

 He loves my family and treats them like his own. 

 He pushes me to be spontaneous and has a contagious happiness.

He lets me express my feelings and is honest when I'm being unreasonable. 

He is a hard worker. 

 He is the best friend I could ever ask for. 

At a wedding we were at this weekend (post to come) I was able to dwell on all the great moments of our wedding. A few highlights were:

I could literally just go on and on! 

One year ago today we committed to forever and I could not be more pleased with this decision. As I look back on this year I could not be more thankful for the many blessings we have had. I'm so thankful for the support we felt one year ago and for the adventures we have ahead.

The Nest

This past weekend PJ and I headed off to big sur. Peej asked for an adventure for Christmas. I excepted the challenge but asked him if he wouldn't mind it taking place in June. What was his gift? A two night stay in the Human Nest at Treebones Resort. It was a ton of fun and came with complimentary breakfast. The rest of the resort is really all fancy pants yurts so it makes for a funny group of people. They did have the most amazing fancy restaurant at the lodge as well. We spent a lot of time relaxing, reading, swimming, and adventuring. Also on the top of our list of fun activities was taking pics in the nest. Here is a glimpse of our trip!

The Polls

After 6ish crazy months the campaign for county supervisor is over. Candace won by an amazing percentage and we are all so happy! We finished off the campaign with a party on Tuesday night were we stayed up way too late. Then Wednesday when it was all official we got to go to her new office! We are so excited for her to be starting this new adventure. I'm so proud of everything Peej did for his mom. He is such a wonderful and amazing man! Now we are off for a weekend adventure, hurray!

How to Get a Job

Step 1: Get interview and text your mom two outfit options frantically at the last minute 

 Decide on outfit number one.

Step 2: Start driving an hour before you are supposed to. Hit traffic and make it with 10 minutes to spare, but luckily they're 20 minutes behind.

Step 3: Get a second interview. Text mom and sister with three outfits. Talk to both of them on the phone about it.

Decide on outfit number 2.

Step 4: Destroy your house with papers making 'take-away packets' to prove awesomeness.

Step 5: Get in the car an hour later than you wanted too. Be completely panicked, but realize you have the best husband ever.

Step 6: Wait and wait and finally get the call that your in!

Step 7: Have your husband spoil you with all the little things you want from anthro!

That's right I got a job!!! I'll be working next year in the Los Altos School District in a third grade classroom. I am beyond excited. Now we just have 8 weeks to find a place to live and move. I also will have to stay at my parents a few nights a week right after we move because all of my summer work is in Danville. On to a new adventure we go!

Jaicy's Little Bundle on the Way

On Saturday we had a beautiful baby shower for Jaicy and her little baby girl belly. It was such a wonderful shower. Great food, great friends, and tons of beautiful gifts for the new mommy. 

Guests were greeted with these lovely favors. Since it was a nesting theme we decided eggs with irish moss would be more that perfect! 

The invitation was displayed with a real birds nest outside the door.

We Wanted the room to reflect Jaicy and look beautiful and ruffly. I mean it's a little girl on the way! 

There were so many yummy treats I must have ate a weeks worth of sugar over the few hours we were there. Mollie, Aubrey, My mom and I made some of the best treats and way way way too many of them! I guess we over estimated the intake of our crowd.

We had such a wonderful group of loving people and look at that stack of pink and purple gifts!

We all socialized and watched Jaicy open some of the cutest presents I have ever seen!

One of the definite highlights of the event was that I got to get together with all of these lovely ladies! It is so rare these days to have a bunch of us in the same place and it was so wonderful for us all to get to celebrate Jaicy's beautiful blessing!

Ps. If you are interested in some of the things created for this shower stay tuned to my other blog here.
