our night was complete once we had seen the christmas decorations at "it's a small world" and scored some super fast passes to "indiana jones"...yes! another score for us...we avoided the 45 minute wait, just by running into the right person at the right time. one of the cute girls i work with...her fiance is one of the ride operators...seriously... everything was coming up pace and katie!
thanks dad for our tickets and thanks russ and karen for our dinner! it was the best way to spend our first thanksgiving away from home!

i am absolutely loving the 80's feel of this outfit! the booties, the gold bangels (there are 12 of them!), and lets not forget the fabulous belt! a perfect way to accent the narrowest part of me...my waist! and the width of the shoulders will help to balance my hips and shoulders making me oh so curvy!!!

i'm back! i am sure most of you just jumped up and down...yeah! miss me much? crazy crazy past few weeks, but i think i can finally get back into my blogging groove!
i am loving loving loving my life down here in the o.c. my apartment is adorable and in a fabulous area of "socal". local terminology for southern california. see, i am even sounding like a californian. the one thing i am not sure if i am going to master is the unspoken rule that as a female i am required to use the word "like" in "like"every sentence. i thought this was some sort of throw back to "clueless". "like" making fun of girls from west valley for still ratting their hair and destroying our environment with their obsessive use of aquanet. but...it isnt'. "like" is everywhere...in every sentence...even if it has no place, which is like 99.9% of the time.
"like" it is seriously "like" they are having a competition to "like" see if they can "like" out "like" the other person. absolute torture to the human ear!
and i work with the "like" queens.
speaking of work...my job is going wonderfully! i only work eight hour days...i am sure that pace wishes sometimes i worked more than eight hours. as i don't have many girl friends down here yet, all my "hey whatcha doin?", "you are NOT going to believe what i just saw...", "hmmm...i am bored, what should we do?", "does this outfit look ok?"...things i would have run by my bff cambria, are now being transferred to him. bless his heart, he is trying so hard not to scream. he just smiles at me and lets me go on talking. what a guy, what a guy.
i have discovered the fabulous shopping down here...most of which i cannot afford, but i am becoming one hell of a window shopper!
the mall in which i work, has a saks fifth avenue...fun fun fun! and i work above crate and barrel and next to pottery barn...love love love. plus...ahhh...just down the hall is my safe place. my own little slice of heaven. nordstrom.
i just smile every day when i walk into work. just to see the glowing white tile leading me right to the comforts of the shoe department. i spend my "15's" (fifteen minute breaks, they have breaks in retail...we don't have those in hotels!) oohing and aahing. nothing makes me feel better after being yelled at because i will not return a bra that has obviously been worn (gross! sick and wrong!) then being able to slip my foot into a fabulous michael kors wedge, knowing i can't afford to buy them actually makes me love wearing them for 5 minutes even more.
ahh, can't wait for work tomorrow!
today, pace and i have had an uber california day. we woke up at 9am, drove to orange, ate breakfast at this fabulous 50's style soda counter, window shopped the antique malls that line the streets of old town orange and then went birthday shopping at nordstrom. now i am sitting in my jammies watching football. ahh..i love this day.
k fab out for now...be back later with more stories of "like" and michael kors shoes!
i love my life.

5 days until friday! yeah! the 3rd of october is my favorite holiday of the year...the day of my birth. 26 years ago...uhg. there is something really unappealing about being OVER 25. can i still call myself twenty-something? i think yes. sounds much better than the other option...late twenties!
let the countdown spectacular begin....

the season is upon us. i am currently busy every thursday, saturday, sunday and monday. i am sad that i have to see my beloved brett in a green and white jersey. it is truly heartbreaking.
anyone who thinks they might want to cheer for the 49'ers...you are no longer allowed to read my blog. you may resume reading...never.

whew. finally, i am posting. finally, it is the end of august. finally, i have two days of work left and finally, i am almost done packing.
you can see why "finally" was such a perfect title for my blog. next week it will be "finally, i am in california!"
so as you can see by my numerous finally's that it has been a stressful week, month. and my proof, i have had two coldsores...stress enduced...in the past two weeks. i need to calm down...easier said than done.
pace is officially down in california. below you will find pictures of our apartment. i like to call these the "before" pictures. meaning, before katie arrived. cause ya'll know that i love decorating and this apt will be no different. well, i guess kinda. i am going to be incorporating "boy things" into my decor. things like...huge speakers, bigger tv's and pictures of squirrels...yes, i know it is currently on our mantle. soon to be...in the bathroom? i don't even know.
pace and has dad drove down to sunny california a week and a half ago and unpacked the entire pod...in the middle of the afternoon heat. thanks boys! also, you must realize that we have a lot of stuff. most of which is currently hidden in closets and most of which is mine. pace has taken it upon himself to begin to decorate the apartment. which i am not sure he was totally game for. and certainly not something he enjoys. he has done a wonderful job and been a really good sport. i am excited to get down there and add a little katie to the place. it just needs a bit of a "woman's touch."
with all that said...
thank you so much for all of your hard work making that plain white apartment look like a home.
so needless to say, i will be quite emotional this next week. most likely, no blogs. although it might be a nice out, you can't cry in blogs! anyway, our crazy and wild california adventure is about to begin...
