It has been 5 years. FIVE YEARS!!!

Since Nick is away for work today, we celebrated early and went to dinner on monday night to One if by Land, Two if by sea. It was a very enjoyable evening and the scenery was pretty magical after the storm. We’re planning a slightly more fun celebration for sometime in march together with his birthday! I can’t wait!

Happy anniversary Goat!! I wouldn’t want to have our crazy fun adventures with anyone else! I miss you and  love you so much and can’t wait for you to get back!

Thanks for the best 5 years!

Ya van 5 años. CINCO AÑOS!!!!

Como Nico está de viaje el día de hoy, celebramos nuestro aniversario el lunes pasado y fuimos a cenar a One if by Land, Two if by Sea.  Fue una noche maravillosa y como nevó todo se veía precioso.  Estamos planeando una celebración un poquito más divertida en marzo junto con su cumpleaños! Ya quiero que sea marzo!

Feliz aniversario Nico!! No quisiera tener nuestras aventuras súper divertidas con nadie más! Te extraño y te amo y me muero por que regreses!

Gracias por los últimos cinco años, han sido los mejores!

So I’m taking french classes yet again and so is the hubs! Oui, oui!! We’re so excited and loving our classes.  After last week’s class we had a little date at our new favorite place Buvette that doubled as our Valentine’s day celebration. We don’t really go all out it since it’s so close to our anniversary, but we usually celebrate it one way or another and I do always get flowers.  This time it was with a delicious little lunch! It was such a treat and wish we could make it a weekly thing after our class. Someday maybe!

Una vez más estoy tomando clases de francés y Nico también.  Oui, oui!! Estamos super emocionados y nos encantan nuestras clases.  La semana pasada después de mi clase nos vimos en un lugarcito francés que se llama Buvette para celebrar el día de san Valentín.  En realidad nunca lo celebramos en grande porque sólo es una semana después de nuestro aniversario pero siempre hacemos algo y siempre me sorprenden con flores. Esta vez disfrutamos de una comida deliciosa que me encantaría que fuera cada semana después de nuestra clase.

If you have the chance to visit Buvette GO!! Their dinner is amazing! Si tienen la oportunidad de ir a Buvette VAYAN!! La cena esta increíble!

Happy Valentine’s Day!



Love suffers long, and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek it’s own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in truth; bears all things, believes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8


Have a beautiful beautiful day! Enjoy your loved ones!

Mini Valentine Making Party

After looking through the february issue of Living and finding the coolest little valentine making party,a couple of my friends and I decided to have our mini version of it at my place (since I have all the card making goods) and copy their dinner and dessert: Pizza sandwiches with arugula & basil salad and peanut butter and jam cookies!!  (their pics are way better than mine…I had loads of crappy lighting! sorry!)

So last thursday night we prepared all the goods for the pizza sandwiches and cookies and enjoyed a lovely dinner with champagne!  My friend Alisia’s engagement happened Wednesday night so the news called for a celebratory beverage…..which in my mind is ALWAYS ALWAYS champagne (or some kind of sparkling wine!).


{CHEERS! Congratulations Alisia & Jon!}

{Isn’t her ring pretty?}

{ready for some peanut butter & raspberry jam cookies?}

{so they’re a little fopped up, but they were pretty delicious!}

{card making gets intense!}

Have yourselves a Happy pre-Valentine’s weekend!

Birthday fun, part 1

So to start the celebration we decided to go to disneyland on wednesday not just because it was my birthday, but also because it was the last day to use our annual passes and we won’t be renewing so we did an entire day at the happiest place on earth. It turned out to be the most awesome day for lots of reasons…. (btw…this is a long post, but don’t be scared…..it’s mostly pictures!)

1. Everyone says happy birthday to you. It feels pretty good.

2. It was supposed to rain all day long and then it turned out to be a lovely brisk fall day.

3. The promise of rain scared lots of people off so the wait lines weren’t more than 20 minutes. Sad part though…Toy story ride was closed, but its ok because…..

4. I got a picture with the princesses. My very first one ever!

5. The old time piano player man played happy birthday and Alice and her guest sang it andddd then the mad hatter sang a very merry unbirthday to me as well….cause he hates the birthday song!!
