We heart bulk bins

You may be asking yourself why Whole Foods is a blog topic (or maybe you know us and therefore don’t think this is anything out of the ordinary), but as truth would have it, this trip to Whole Foods was ranked in the top five for best moments of Visit Home 2011 for girl, up … Continue reading

We. are. fam. il. y!

Thanks for girl’s sis (making a debut in the background!), the family got to spend some quality holiday time burning off the burritos at the ice rink! Boy had just come off his second hockey game of the day, but that didn’t stop him from skatin’ around with the fam. Nor did it stop the … Continue reading

Heaven on earth

…comes in the form of a burrito. After a good visit to Whole Foods, we’d worked up an appetite and drove up to College Ave. for some Mexican delights. Waiting in line with a year’s worth of anticipation, we talked excitedly about what we were going to order in the moments to come! Burritos and … Continue reading

We meet…home

Since arriving last Sunday night, things have been flying by. With Christmas in full swing and family to surprise, we’ve hardly had a chance to sit down! We’ll be catching up later but for now, here’s week one in a nutshell. We arrived Sunday night with headaches and ringing ears from crying children on a … Continue reading

Big girl purchase: luggage

Sitting in a room that looks like it was hit by today’s wind storms, girl is desperately searching for something else to think about other than how on earth she is going to pack everything into one suitcase. (Yes, there’s a lot of italics going on here – this is serious business). That said, let’s … Continue reading

Les petits tas de ma chambre

Girl is certain that when boy walks in, her face will look as guilty as the girl above’s. After making a detailed list to help simplify the process of packing and prepping the apartment for guests, girl has discovered that her list was absolutely no help. Where do you even begin? With suitcases in the … Continue reading

The countdown is on

Well, how about “as much as” a giant burrito? Or “almost as much as” a giant burrito…stuffed with homemade guacamole and hot sauce? The countdown is on, friends, boy and girl are heading back to the homeland for the holidays. All the preparation and planning is to blame for our lack of posting…we’re so excited … Continue reading

Happy Turkey Day!

Okay, so our Thanksgiving isn’t quite as sexy as Marilyn’s (nor is it that easy to find a turkey in Paris), but it will be full of thanks! We’re thankful that we’ve managed to not kill each other after one year of living in a tiny studio, we’re thankful to this crazy city for teaching … Continue reading

Be careful what you ask for

We asked for some spice in our lives…and we got it. But not the way we expected. First, we must say that we’re the luckiest couple ever. Our families nurture our cravings for home and love of Target. They kept us warm in the winter by sending flannel pj’s and sweatshirts and they make sure … Continue reading

Todo, we’re not near a gym anymore

As Californians, we’ve successfully underestimated the wonders of having a gym as readily available as a Starbucks coffee. Boy and girl had memberships to some of the finest gyms the Bay Area has to offer and we miss them almost as much as a spicy enchilada. Of all the amazing things Paris has to offer, … Continue reading
