Wishing & Working Out

Since I still don't have a job, just kidding, I had to resort to getting rehired at Staples. I know everyone keeps saying it's a paycheck and yes, technically it is, but I feel like I've taken a step backwards. Ok, maybe for lateral, but still, I just feel like a failure :( . Even though I have a job I've had a lot more time on my hands. Time spent at the gym or miraculously, blogging again. Since exercising regularly again, all I can do is think about all the cute workout clothes I can eventually fit into.  Here are some of my, 'can't stop thinking about these inspiration/goal setting items'.
 A variety of things I need to acquire for maximum gym time.  
Water Bottle for easy drinking
Cute Gym Bag to carry everything in
LuLu Lemon Yoga Pants, to look sexy in
Nike Shoes, I'd love shoes that actually fit

Headphones, for me to watch Millionaire Matchmaker or Pregnant in Heels

Graduating From Kindergarten

Since I am now in the Bay Area, I get to be close to The Wood Family. And attend the events I wasn't able to in Utah. 
Isaiah & Mrs. Helms

Savannah & Isaiah
A couple weeks ago I got to be at my nephew Isaiah's kindergarten graduation. He's a goof in the class and all his classmates and his teacher just love him. After the graduates walked in hand in hand, they sang a song about going to 1st Grade and then his teacher handed out their Kindergarten Diplomas. 
Isaiah, four Cliffords & a Monkey
Afterwards there were cookies and Caprisuns for refreshments. Isaiah had four cookies and kept asking for more. He finally settled on taking one home in his backpack to eat later. Isaiah cried before we left because he's going to miss his teacher and school so much. But he'll realize its summer and how fun it can be! 
Congratulation Isaiah Wood!

A Leap To San Francisco

 I'm sure most people have heard that Colin and I moved to San Francisco! He got a job, three days after he graduated, to work as an Enivornmental Planner for Transcon Environmental. We packed most of our things, sold the rest, and after two weeks we made the 12 hour move to San Francisco on May 27th. Without any complications (besides a fickle tarp), we made it to California safely.
 Within a week we found a place to live, with 3 other people in a 3 bedroom, one bathroom place in the Mission District.It has the classic bay windows, fireplace, built in hutch, and even a gorgeous courtyard with a friendly cat. 
 It's been almost three weeks since we've moved in and we just recently got a bed. We were sleeping on tatami mats (basically bamboo mats) since we moved in. But on Sunday we were ready for an actual bed. So we went to Berkeley and ended up getting an amazing pillow top mattress. Colin was pushing for a Full but I convinced him to get a Queen. It was worth the investment. The bed sits  waist height for me so I literally get to jump into bed at night. Also, my phone is broken :(. But have no fear, my phone insurance is covering it! And that means I get a brand new Nokia Windows phone. I feel like I'm actually cool that I'll have a touch phone and not a BlackBerry.
 We've done a lot of wandering around San Francisco and I've been searching for a job (which is a lot harder than I thought it would be).  We visited Coit Tower, the beach, golden gate park and have walked around our neighbourhood a bit. I've also been able to visit my sister Becky and her family! I even got to go to Isaiah's Kindergarten Graduation! (Newsflash: stay tuned for my next post).
 Other than that we've been enjoying San Francisco and Colin love his new job. We need to put together a Bucket List of things to do in the city. Which hopefully we'll be here for a long time :)
