I’m Addicted to Zillow {Plus Home Pin Roundup}

October 5, 2013

Breon and I have started looking at houses. I am so excited because it’s just fun looking at houses. Sure, I know that buying a house is probably a process which is stressful but I also know that I am having fun acting like I am on House Hunters. While I realize that we aren’t going to buying for a while (we just resigned our lease for the apartment), it’s a good time for us to start thinking about what we want, what we can afford, and where we want to live. B has even started a spreadsheet, so you know it’s on.

A few houses I like from my Saved Houses…

I loved the four car garages, the kitchen and living room. I didn’t like the location (right off of Highway 36), and the house feels really old.

I liked the location, the kitchen was open, and there is a big back yard. The house’s location doesn’t vibe well with B and the bathrooms are in need of updating.

Ohh.. I loved the location, size, kitchen, and overall feel of this one. The house, however, doesn’t have a garage or cable anywhere. We would have to put those things in…but i do love this one.

We have looked at maybe 7 and these were probably my favorite at the time…of course though, we probably won’t move on any of these. But it’s fun to start looking! Here are some of my favorite home pins on Pinterest! Gotta love the crazy amounts of inspiration on that site!



Fashion Friday: Chic and Comfy Fall Outfit Idea

October 4, 2013

Enjoy fall with this fun and comfy outfit. I love mixing summer camis like this cheetah print with a fall sweater wrap! The boots add warmth and comfort! Throw together with a favorite necklace and your fall bag and you’re ready for a farmer’s market, shopping or whatever is on your weekend to-do list! Enjoy!

{Photos} California Day 2: Half Moon Bay

October 1, 2013

After our day in San Francisco, we headed down the coast to Half Moon Bay. It was quite busy (being Labor Day weekend after all), but we were determined to look at our beaches. We looked at about 5 beaches and loved the ones further down the coast but all in all, after the entire trip we decided that Half Moon Bay was just not right for the wedding. We still love the area though!

Must-Do’s in Half Moon Bay

  • Enjoy a drink and dinner at Pasta Moon
  • Grab a coffee at Half Moon Bay Coffee
  • Walk down Main St
  • If you are into golf, check out the many options for golfing
  • Take a book and blanket and relax on Pomponio State Beach
  • Get a massage at the Ritz-Carlton

My Fall To-Do List {September Update}

September 29, 2013

I am loving fall. This weekend we cleaned, watched my step-sister kick butt at hockey and have dinner with my dad, and went to some open houses in Roseville…all-in-all very successful!

Here is an update on my fall to-do list with some fun photos!


We went apple picking at Afton Apple which was quite busy the day we went so we didn’t spend too much time lollygagging…we grabbed our apples and then went to my mom’s and made apple crisp. It was delicious.







Brat loved the Apple Crisp! 

Breon and I stopped at a few Parade of Homes models and thought they were great (or at least I did)…he, being more of a realist, didn’t really think we should look at houses we can’t afford…touche. So we started looking at houses that we could afford last weekend and continued. It’s kinda fun looking at them and seeing what we can afford!



During our open houses today we looked at a handful of house, non of which shouted awesome at us. They all had certain things we liked but others we didn’t…generally, I find the search fun seeing as we are in NO rush to move out of our apartment. I enjoyed my chai tea during the drive around Roseville!

Don’t really have any ideas what my fall craft should be any ideas? Let me know!
