focusing on the positive

I am loving that I finally get to see and spend time with this guy.

I am loving that I get the chance to detox for the next few days and be very concious of what goes into my body

I am loving that I get a few days to actually get my apartment in order. I have a long list of to-do's but that's a lot better than sitting in the apartment doing nothing.

I am loving that I've got plans to meet some new friends in the next few weeks.

I am loving that Joel and I booked our 5 year anniversary trip to a winery in Santa Barbara. We are going to be touring Fess Parker wines and staying at this bed and breakfast. Any reccomendations for what else to do/eat while in Santa Barbara would be great! 

 I am loving that I have a jam packed DVR to work my way through.

I am loving that Joel is excited to see The Hunger Games with me.

I am loving that Reese Witherspoon is preggers.

I am loving that I may have convinced Joel to go meet a puppy this weekend to consider adopting.

I am loving that I'm in California. As Claire (my bff) and I diagnosed, physically getting to California was a huge mentral hurdle that I had to overcome, and I'm fricken relieved that I am HERE!  


  1. love everything about this post. Hope you are having a wonderful time!

  2. what a great post. i love that reese witherspoon is pregnant too!

  3. these are all great things! I LOVE it when I have a full DVR, except when it is so full that it is on the verge of deleting shows. Then that is not okay. A glass of vino and a little DVR sounds perfect for tonight!

  4. Wow! You have a lot of fun things going on. SB is amazing. I wish we could live there...you will want to move there! State Street is a must and the mission. It is a pretty drive too. Look at you, already taking advantage of what CA has to offer;)

  5. Go to La Super-Rica!! It's amazing...and Julia Child loved it :) http://www.yelp.com/biz/la-super-rica-taqueria-santa-barbara

    P.S. Will there be something sparkly for your finger during this anniversary trip...? :)

  8. Woah! So much excitement!
